    India who usually bullies and does what she wants without regard for SL's feelings suddenly seeks our cooperation and approval for their nuclear plant? Something fishy going on and our guys should be wary before agreeing to anything.

    Will India's nuclear plant benefit SL? Hardly. If at all it will be a constant threat to our environment and population.
