When the Holy Pope  Francis visited Sri Lanka, he said the simple habits and unpretentious nature of President Maithripala Sirisena was similar to his life style. When the Holy Pope said ‘President Sirisena is just like me’ I said ‘no you are just like President Sirisena,” Archbishop said.

Maithripala Sirisena says ” on elected as the president he would not move into official residence Temple Trees but would live in his own simple house. He has also declared his assets for everyone to see. He is keen on leading a simple life and serving the people of all communities.

It was unimaginable for either the President or the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka to eat his lunch on Banana Leaves.  Our President is committed to simple life.  Extravagant lifestyle is not his cup of tea.   It is possible that our President has no proper cutlery otherwise why should he eat his lunch through plastic containers in  Parippu and Lunumiris.  A simple man like this cannot afford Porcelain, at least some Stoneware  must be provided to our poor President. Otherwise how can he keep his status?

In fact, the government must provide a Rickshaw for the President.  The Rickshaws are freely available in India and his Tamil friend Sambandan can donate a Ricksaw.  Ricksaw and Banana leaf lunch goes well together.

Our President need not have Mercedes Benz Cars.  It will be humiliating for him to eat his lunch on banana leaf and travel in an air conditioned, chauffeur driven Limousine S600 Mercedes Benz with Biturbo Engine, Magic Body Control.  Extended Length with Handcrafted Luxury Finished Cabin, Heated Power Seats, Multi Contour Seats with Massage, Cabin Automizer Frangrance, 20 inch 10 spoke Alloy Wheel.

All Sri Lankans must admire this great personality.  He defeated a Maha Raja.  He defeated poverty of Sri Lanka. He allowed national Anthem sung in Tamil.  He made a Tamil an Alternative Prime Minister. He does not waste public funds by conducting Elections.  He travel overseas  in Economy Class.   He is committed to a simple life.  He wears traditional leather sandals, like Mahatma Gandhi.  His next lunch ought to be also on Banana Leaf, with Rice, Dhall, Chapati, Yogurt and Brinjal, just like Mahatma Gandhi.

Our Great Illustrious President must be nominated for the next Nobel Prize and he should be our President forever for these exceptional qualities.

    He is such a simple man and only spending Rs 600 million to import his two cars and even allows the poor masses to eat Croton leaves. He should have donated some Croton plants to the poor Pope.

  2. Ananda-USA Says:

    A simple man like this should not be so OVERDRESSED in a white Ariya Sinhala suit either!

    He should switch to a LOIN CLOTH and bare chest to bare his simplicity to the world!

    After all, Mahatma Gandhi shook the bare hand of the Queen also, dressed in a loin cloth! But the homespun shawl covering his shoulders did make him look distinctly OVERDRESSED for the role!

    Send Aiyooo Sirisena a FULL AMUDEY set of just 2 Amudeys, one working Amudey and one as backup, but no shawls!

    Sira is biggest liar & a cheater. He imported a band new Toyota Land Cruiser 14th Oct 2016, through a Singaporean Company value USD 62,500 duty free after becoming President of SL declaring in Sri Lanka Customs Entry Form that he is a MP giving his Polonaruwa home address. Someone should impeach him. That court case in Australia for accepting bribe when he was a Minister now silence.

  4. aloy Says:

    This prez appears to be the most unprincipled person to occupy the highest seat. He came to power promising to end nepotism, corruption, waste etc.
    Immediately he came in he appointed his bro and allowed his cabinet ministers also to do the same. Through his family & co he himself appear to be neck deep in it. MR handled our assets strategically. This one has allowed his PM to do anything as long as he has not seen it in the papers. Only time will tell how will he end up; perhaps six feet under very soon.

  5. Kumari Says:

    This man should receive the “Best Actor ” award from both Academy and Oscar. No wonder he has no time left to run the country. Compared to Sirisena family Rajapakses did so much to the country and the masses.

  6. AnuD Says:

    Take former Iranian PResident Ahmedinajah as the example. When he finished serving the Iranian presidemt, he did not have his own car or his limopusine to transport him. I heard he used bus service.

    He used to sleep on the carpet and photos are in the internet. Which Sri lanka politician lived that way. Just forget the president.

    Politics is employment for sri lankan politicians. They suck as much as they can.

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    Tough times dealt with by a crafty Prez !

  9. Fran Diaz Says:

    When Sinhala people fight among themselves, proded on by foreign Agents and their local counterparts, then those who want to ‘divide & rule’ prosper. Surely, our top Politicos must know this !

    ALL PATRIOTS must work together for the common good.

  10. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:


  11. Lorenzo Says:


    ALL PATRIOTS can work for the common good BUT they need a TRUE PATRIOTIC LEADER. NO past or present proven leader fits the bill.

    Sarath Weerasekera should take the lead.

  12. Cerberus Says:

    This man is one of the sliest people on earth. He sends Awamangala to the UNHRC and tells him to accept any request from them. So Awamangala agrees to foreign judges and all the conditions inimical to Sri Lanka I think based on newspapers. Then My3 and tells everyone that while he is President there will be no foreign judges. So he has lied to both the UNHRC and to the Sri Lankan people. If any group goes to meet him he will agree wholeheartedly to all their requests. So they go away happy thinking the President is a reasonable man. After a while, they find that My3 has done nothing about their requests.

    RW is the same. He goes to China and agrees to sell the Hambantota port and 15,000 acres to the Chinese. Then he comes back and finds there is a lot of opposition to his idea. He then tries all kinds of avenues to get it done. When cannot he says “I never agreed to sell the Hambantota harbor. Only to lease it”.

    The Same story regards the holding of local Govt elections. Both first blame the delimitation committee and then keep finding various excuses not to have elections. Look at the Bond scam. COPE tabled the report in the Parliament. then RW says he will send it to the AG where it is blocked. Then My3 says he will appoint a Presidential Commission to study the problem. The case is an open and shut case of insider trading for which Raj Ratnam went to jail in USA for 11 years. My3 then appoints a low-level police officer to the commission also. People feel that these two jokers are taking action when in fact they both want to shelve the whole issue. It is the same with the abolition of the Presidency. Recently there was a news report about a Civil Society group who had gone and met the President. My3 has usual agreed to eliminate the Presidency as he had originally, as soon as the new constitution which no one wanted other than the Tamil groups and the West, is passed. Which means it will never be passed. Can anyone believe this sly man will eliminate the goose that lays the golden eggs for him?

    So it goes on……..The people and the Western powers, the Chinese and the Indians are all fooled and these two sly foxes carry on doing nothing and making money and remaining in power. For My3 I think the only thing that matters is to remain in power and look after his not very bright son and the equally unimpressive daughter. Time is passing and nothing is done in the meantime while the country is getting poorer by the day and the people are living on biscuits and tea.

  13. ranjit Says:

    We cannot forget what he said during election time so easily. He is a double gamer as well as a double actor whom we cannot trust for a dime. I heard that his son takes his dog to show to the doctor in a helicopter. If it is true then we can imagine how much simple this President is? This bonnie and Clyde twosome plus Choura Rejina are creators of lies and very shrewd and cunning three individuals whom we need to get rid of as soon as possible if not no more Sinhala land or any safety to our most revered religion Buddhism. Wake up from your sleep and think hard. Help to save our motherland.

  14. Lorenzo Says:

    Cerberus is PARTLY correct. He is WRONG on Run-nil. That fool has NO brains to think. My3 is an EXPERT in manipulation.

    Who sells Trinco? RUN-NIL
    Who sells H’tota? RUN-NIL
    Who agreed for war crimes? MANGALA
    Who put taxes? Karunkaya

    My3 does all these through his MINISTERS. At the election, he will PUT all blame on ministers and he wins.

    Now he wants BASIL to form a PARTY (SLPP) and get ALL anti-My3 people of SLFP to JOIN it. Then he SINKS it by jailing BASIL for corruption NOT BEFORE suspending ALL MPs joining it. NEXT in the UPFA list at the 2015 election are My3 fellows!!!

    These 15 people although CONTESTED from the UNP and NOT UNP MPs. They support My3. IF UNP tries to be TOO SMART My3 pull the plug!!

    Without these people UNP is only 86 MPs. Even with TNA it is only 100 seats. 13 short. Thonda and EPDP ha only 4 seats in total. Still short by 9 seats.

    Very clever.

    This is why you should NOT mess with THE SIRA.

    After NEW YEAR UNP will find out who the boss is.

  15. aloy Says:

    On second thought I felt sorry for my above comment.
    I wish everyone happy new year including prez. I also wish he will do the right thing in future.

  16. Lorenzo Says:

    Ranjan Rama is getting VERY POPULAR.

    Bugger deserves it. NO OTHER MP does these things.

    He has helped a child wrongly condemned for AIDS go to school again. Even if a child has AIDS he is entitled to go to school and university.


    I feel sorry for those who plan to CONTEST AGAINST him. They will not stand a chance.

  17. Ananda-USA Says:

    Aloy ol chap,

    Your heart has taken command of your head …. temporarily I hope!

    But, on Aluth Avurudu day, every fellow is allowed to be a little mellow!

    Obatath Subha Aluth Avuruddak Wewa!

  18. Fran Diaz Says:

    There are proven PATRIOTIC LEADERS in Lanka.
    We already have proven PATRIOTIC LEADERS, from politicos, professionals, and Others.

    What we need is true PATRIOTISM from ALL Tamil leaders to lead their flock to PATRIOTISM.

  19. Lorenzo Says:

    NO BASTILE DAY in SL! Those things are VIOLENT, kills people, burns things, destroys things, etc. NO!

    Fran, there are NO LIVING proven patriotic leaders of SL in parliament. NONE!

    We have to look elsewhere.
