Today TV news broadcasted about some actors holding placards during the state drama festival award ceremony ,protesting the government actions .

Next new Item was about an MP playing dangerous act by pretending to commit suicide  and the school principal playing the act of being unconscious .It also showed how MP caressing his head when he was taken to hospital .Next scene was how the parents taking to streets protesting against the MP .

Same MP was playing chandiya”in the parliament and bearing the hell out of another MP

Then you see the next news item about a sibling of a previous coming out of Serious Crime division and making a statement that a new party will be formed to fight the government ( not the FCID).
Everyday there are episodes of a soap opera unfolding and the people have stopped watching teledramas as the real life drama seem more interesting .

I read Sunday papers and read the Marriage Proposals and start  laughing  .One proposal was about a man looking for a bride stating that he divorced just after a week of his first marriage and  claiming that he is the innocent Party”

Another marriage proposal about a man explain how good he is as a future husband ,but at the end he admits that he had depression and now recovered .I consider him as a honest future husband !

Media keeps showing hilarious pictorial news via TV and  jokes in the new papers.

We in Sri Lanka are living in a dream world, and sometimes I wonder whether this is real
