    Step in the right direction. We cannot be eternally suspicious. Hope the Tamil brethren too will take it in the right spirit and refrain in unsavoury actions.

    Sikuru Saturday, 29 August 2015 10:07 PM

    Is that your justification for continuing the "War mentality" after end of war?

    Sikuru Saturday, 29 August 2015 10:09 PM

    True peace can only be achieved when the "war mentality" ends, Tamils should feel the difference now so they can enjoy peace

    Ganesha Saturday, 29 August 2015 10:36 PM

    Where is the national unity and undivided Sri lanka when the army name board does not have Tamil which is said to be official? Did Vasudeva and the government think the first language of Tamils is English ? What has the present regime done in this regard so far ?

    Bala Saturday, 29 August 2015 10:42 PM

    Everyone knew where it wasand I passed throught it recently. Just took down the name. Did not serve any purpose current situation.

    Positive signs until it backfires and never trust and politicians in the past took the same positive decisions and had the war for 30 years could never trusted the Tamil Tigers and also TNA. This is the influence of India and USA shame

    GC Sunday, 30 August 2015 05:37 AM

    Why is the sign not in Tamil also? As a Sinhalese, I am very surprised and cannot believe this is how the peace was going to be won.

    Wasalaya Monday, 31 August 2015 10:27 AM

    The difference is Sinhalees does not walk around with bombs strapped to the chest.
