    Even though Kalpitiya is close to the sea, how on earth can a Maha Vidyalaya afford prawms ?

    NO ONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO 'PLAY' WITH FOOD. THE CULPRITS SHOULD BE GIVEN THE MAXIMUM PUNISHMENT, AS A LESSION TO OTHERS LIKE THEM!

    This mid-day meal seems to be killing our kids. Why not divide the total cost of the meal by the number of kids eligible to receive it and then give it as a financial grant to the respective parent or parents?

    This food supplier should be hanged. Well he is MR's far relation, so he will escape.
