    Bad omens when bad people rule the country. But it is pity the poor people are at the receiving end.

    And while this was happening Colombo was ushering in the new year in grand style.... spare a thought at least for those affected and say a prayer. thats the least we can do. Its obvious that God's not happy with the way things are happening in SL right now....

    This show that we need to impliment Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) practices to minimise the casulties.
    Government must change thier policy on DRR and prepare the communities at risk.. It is pity that we did not learnt a lesson even after tsunami.

    Politicians spend in millions to get elected, they must spend double the amount as donations to help flood victims, if they are genuine about helping mankind.
