    Thank you to all the staff for your hard work! This should be an example to other medical professionals who only think of private practice!

    Sri Lankas population increaeses by 600 people per day, that is births minus deaths. So this is no big deal. But in 50 years these will only be standing room in the country

    Very good news.The health minister should immedietly look in to the shortcomings of this hospital and give the possible help because it is in a remote area.Well done Doctors,and the staff.

    OMG, where will we go, if there are new babies born like this everyday? We are an Island nation where our land and resources are limited and we are already over populated. We need immediate implementation of strict birth control policy.

    In Bati district population of Kathankudy DS division is 99% Muslim. There are 35.4% under 15 children in Kathankudy but only 23% in Padukka where I live and 27.1% in Bibila. So the population explosion will be in Kathankudy like Muslim villages.

    Dude, nothing is wrong with the lights on; But when lights are on there is so much one can do, read, tv, movie.... unlike powers are off, people hit the sack early! ;)

    This is why M.R. was getting the Chinese to reclaim land from the sea.

    Gothayaa Saturday, 21 February 2015 05:51 AM

    We have too high of a population in this small country. We need to keep the population stable at about 18 million. One child policy should be brought in for a decade or so.
