    A true friend who helps without ulterior motives. Thank you the people and politicians of Japan. Some others want their pound of flesh and say they are for us and helping us.

    Usually there are no strings attached to any Japanese aid. They still respect our stand on them after the second world war. Recently when I said Japanese are true friends in this column, someone asked whether the Japanese prime minister is my father. Not stopping at that, he called me a retard. Humans love freedom :). Still I say again Japanese are try friends of Sri Lanka.

    Japan is a most respected nation. Won't pledge the universe and then convert it to a soft loan at market rates.
