    I wonder why people are overreacting!
    Only those children know how to lose their parents. Mind you, they are still orphans and in need of love and care.

    Ranjith Monday, 09 July 2012 10:06 AM

    All the readers are thanking president, then who appointed those officers who took the decision to seporate the innocent children?. If DM not enlighten the news idiotic inhumane officers would seporate the kids.

    enid Tuesday, 10 July 2012 03:37 AM

    Mr. Rajapakse has shown genuine kindness.
    Sometimes we need someone like a President to
    show us that it is wrong to separate siblings as old as them.
    They seem attached to each other and this may cause some
    emotional problems.

    Anti-Indian Monday, 09 July 2012 04:38 AM

    Were the authorities so disconnected from what was going on to separate these kids? If the president doesn't get involved nothing happens in this country. Pathetic.

    If you could give more details of the two children we too could help them.

    SM Monday, 09 July 2012 03:24 PM

    Maybe the president can pardon the children's father as well. I know he committed a murder but he did that to avenge the murder of these children's mother.
    Just something to think about.
