  1. Political Situation

Sri Lanka may be returning to its normal peaceful balanced static and dynamic situation with the approval of the IMF fund. However, it’s a loss to understand as to why people lighted firecrackers and celebrated on the streets of Colombo. This is why the writer stated in one of his articles as literacy rate does not limit to people can read and write but understand what they read.

The gravity of the Sri Lankan economic and people ambitious situation should be understood by all people.

Quote Ref: What are moral rights in Sri Lanka?

The rights take two forms: (a) economic rights and (b) moral rights. Economic rights include the right to reproduce, sell, rent, distribute, communicate with the public, and translate etc. whereas the moral rights cover the right to claim the authorship and right to oppose distortion or mutilation of the work.

Could we agree that (a) is in full form? Not in full.

(b) is practised in full form. People, students are on the road fully disagreeing what the government gives them.

  • LTTE

LTTE is a defunct terrorist group. Some crooks who are money mongers are trying to say that LTTE is alive. LTTE was wiped out in 2009 under the military Command of Gen Sarath Fonseka. GOSL and the citizens should not worry about the defunct LTTE.

Only those corrupt Tamils who have no principles in their mind are using the LTTE to collect money and become rich. Already those LTTE funds have been invested in Supermarkets, Shopping complexes, conference halls, and businesses elsewhere. They will be punished as the curse has been thrown at them.

Tamils build temples in overseas countries. They get grants and aids from their local state and governments. Tamils cannot boast that they built the temples with their own money.

GOSL should not worry about the LTTE. That does not mean that the service the Sri Lankan intelligence organisation should sleep but be active as usual.

At the current period, GOSL and the People should trust only those who are honest and trustworthy, which is Hon Doulas Devananda and the EPDP.

  • Reconciliation

Quote; Title: Strengthening Reconciliation Processes in Sri Lanka

The reconciliation process in Sri Lanka is strengthened. Governmental and non-governmental organisations in Sri Lanka address key aspects of the reconciliation process jointly.

Yes, everything except the hurt minds of the Tamils have not been sobered. Now that the situation is returning to normal, GOSL should review their status and pass a resolution to Tender and Apology” for the burning of the Jaffna Library in 1981, and record in gazette. This will cool the minds and the thoughts of the Tamil people and the politicians.

The tender of the apology should be passed by the parliament of the GOSL.

The writer considers this act as a diplomatic and magnanimous act only.

The writer wishes to add that he has donated more than three dozens engineering books to the University of Moratuwa, to which he is indebted to the rest of his life.
