Domestic violence in Sri Lanka is increasing an alarming rate; mainly due to economic and financial reasons. Mother is always on the hook to feed the kids, if no money to buy the necessities, things gets ugly at home and the results are awful. Leaders should pay attention to these.

What is wrong with Sri Lanka. Time for a rethink. Are the people being driven to a wall and this is the escape. Valuable lives lost.
