Religion, non-religion, and human rights

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

By Mario Perera, Kadawata I do not know whether Mangala Samaraweera is the adherent of a religion. I only know, from a photo published in the newspapers some time back, that he has no respect for the Lord Buddha. The photo showed him holding a Buddha statue by the neck and behind his person. I […]

Elections for what purpose (Part 2)

Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

Mario Perera Kadawata As regards the topic under discussion, the revolution I forecast cannot be an armed uprising. The servile military and armed forces of the SYSTEM will, with the blessings of their local leaders and foreign masters, mow down the Sinhala youth as they did in 1971 and 1989 without the least fears of […]

Elections for what purpose?

Saturday, June 22nd, 2019

Mario Perera Kadawata Holding elections and ushering in another government under the same existing constitutional provisions, whoever be the winners, is like adding another floor to the same obsolete worthless structure that has long outlived its utility and is crumbling on all sides on its staggering foundation. Just look at the two most powerful persons […]

SRI LANKA: CRICKET AT ITS WORST

Monday, June 17th, 2019

Mario Perera,Kadawata Everything in Sri Lanka is at its worst. Sri Lankan cricket is just following that trend. They are of the same mold and model as the others. I agree with Shyamon Jayasinghe writing in the Colombo Telegraph, that after this world cup debacle the selection committee must resign. That demand is true for […]

Monday, June 10th, 2019

Mario Perera Kadawata Never in this country’s history has a government sunk to such a level of degradation as this MS-RW government.

Cricket: Sri Lanka and the world cup 2015

Sunday, January 25th, 2015

By Mario Perera, Kadawata What we are witnessing in New Zealand is a sad spectacle of Sri Lankan cricket. To put it succinctly, the national team is in shambles. If we look at the classification table, it is Australia and South Africa that head the list. Then come New Zealand, India. After them comes Pakistan. Then […]

The culture of shamelessness – an art of the gods

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

By Mario Perera, Kadawata Three very recent newspaper headlines that epitomize ‘an art of governance, caught my attention. The first concerns the now well known public statement of the Minister of Higher Education S.B.Dissanayake. He said that in the immediate aftermath of MR winning the presidential election, Chandrika Kumaranatunga, former president, would be thrown on […]

Mahinda Rajapakse: the 13th amendment and his tryst with destiny

Monday, September 1st, 2014

ByMario Perera, Kadawata We Asians believe in the cyclic nature of life and events. It would seem that Mahinda R has done his full circle. Yet there does not appear to be anyone who can dethrone him at this juncture and that because of his apparent commitment to a Unitary (and not United) Sri Lanka […]

Two popes will be canonized on Sunday: some thoughts to ponder

Friday, April 25th, 2014

by Mario Perera, Kadawata The pattern of canonizations has undergone a radical change. Probably the underlying reasoning is that of making it ‘relevant to modern times’. What we are witnessing is the elevation to the sainthood of persons who were public figures within our life time, persons whose lives were under public scrutiny at least […]

The Geneva UNHRC action. What should Sri Lanka’s reaction be?

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

By Mario Perera, Kadawata The Resolution finally went through though not in an overwhelming or convincing manner. The sponsors, the few white sharks, and their supporters the multi-coloured sprats compelled to stick to them in the hope of catching the crumbs that fall from their table, apparently had their way. Both the resolution and the […]

Rayappu ‘Goebbels’ Joseph – a viper in the underwear of the local Catholic Bishops’ Conference.

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Mario Perera, Kadawata  In a recent commentary I referred to the declaration by Mr.Rapp the visiting US ambassador at large that hard core LTTE’ers should have been prosecuted and not rehabilitated.  Now, as is well known, there is a section of them who have neither been prosecuted nor rehabilitated.

By Mario Perera, Kadawata You don’t need a weather man To know which way the wind blows So sang Blob Dylan.

Can the Catholic Church ever have a national consciousness?

Friday, August 16th, 2013

By Mario Perera, Kadawata  First and foremost let me define the terms so as not to get lost in the fog that could ensue from this discussion. People talk of the Cardinal, the bishops, the bishops’ conference, priests and also of the faithful as all being the contents of one and the same basket. Let […]

A Srilankan invention, a stroke of rare genius – the utterance that renews the face of jurisprudence and politics world wide.

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

By Mario Perera, Kadawata  It will be recalled how, when Shirani Bandaranayake was literally put on the Supreme Court bench by her erstwhile mentor Prof. G.L.Peiris, the latter was nicknamed “ƒ”¹…”Pottani Sir’, by the protesting legal fraternity. The phrase was shouted lout loud to the four winds and adorned posters and banners. The “ƒ”¹…”pottaniya’ of […]

Vigneswaran – The new face of the fake now dangling on the dead rope of the old fiction.

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

By Mario Perera, Kadawata  Whether with a wig or without a wig a fake is a fake. He is called a man of integrity, a respected personality and what not. Indeed he has all the appearance of an ascetical Indian GURU. But looks are only skin deep. Greed and cupidity are no respecters of persons. […]

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

By Mario Perera, Kadawata India says: 13A is an International Treaty and cannot be unilaterally abrogated under International Law.

Whither the Sri Lanka Tamils? By E.A.V.Naganathan in Ground Views of 4th July

Friday, July 5th, 2013

Mario Perera, Kadawata  The objective of Naganathan’s article is put in focus in his second paragraph. “If we claim to be a nation-in-waiting we must think in territorial and historical terms. The Ilankai Tamil claim to statehood is sui generis. For those interested in learning about the founding of the Tamil state in 1215 AD, […]

The self immolation of the Venerable Bowatte Indarathana Thera and its consequences.

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Mario Perera, Kadawata The act of self immolation of the venerable monk and the immediate motive ascribed to it are only the tip of an iceberg. The immediate motive brings up the specter of Muslim ambitions. They are even attempting to subvert history to suit their hegemonic purposes (see Dilrook Kannangara: Jilani Never Visited Lanka, […]

Beyond collective egos: Our relational grounds of belonging and faith. -A reply to Sajeeva Samaranayake.

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Mario Perera, Kadawata  In my opinion, this article (24 Apr, 2013 Sajeeva Samaranayake Colombo, Religion and faith) is an attempt to put India in the spotlight as the founder and sustainer of the Sinhalese Buddhist civilization, more specifically of Sinhalese-ness and Buddhist-ness.. The article comes at a time when the Sri Lanka-India relationship is plummeting […]

Rev.Fr. Tissa Balasuriya dies – the colossus of an era passes away

Friday, January 18th, 2013

by Mario Perera, Kadawata Last night while watching the 10 p.m.Sirisa news broadcast, I was treated to a rude jolting shock; the announcement that Rev.Fr.Tissa Balasuriya had died.
