    Dear Mr. President. We wish you'd jump in the band wagon where there are burning issues as well and not only where you can earn a little mileage by the efforts of these innocent people.

    This paralympic thing is a joke. Nobody watches it. It's western liberal nonsense. What paralymipcs does, is makes a mockery out of these people. If you are not having an arm, I will sorry, BUT, that is life. You have lost something valuable. could be your bad kamma. But you have to accept it.

    Pradeep, Sri Lankans can't be more prouder than this. First, you became a differently abled (I hate the word "disabled") person trying to protect the mother land. While most of the people would go into depression or that sort, you truely lived up to your status as a strong soldier, overcame the issues with your body and get us a medal which even the abled bodies could not do. I really can't be prouder than this. Hats off to you man. Respect and salutes !!!
