    There is no need for artificial rain in Sri Lanka. Organize a International cricket match and the skies open up.

    Many rituals were held for rain during drought, CEB was crying aloud, artificial rain was to be imported from China, now pray for the rain to cease! Only a believer knows how to say a specific prayer that will not create havoc!

    Thinking of it, going by the stickers pasted on three wheel taxis, the taxi drivers are very patriotic.

    Unlike the US, we in Sri Lanka can tackle all these natural disasters with ease. We have all the funds and the technology. Waiting for comments from the "so called patriots".

    May all (people and all the other creatures) facing this flood be safe!

    #malkanthi: This natural phenomena has nothing to do with praying. This is nature . It effects different countries at different times. If praying is effective, then why not pray for the rain to stop?
    These are all false iron age beliefs that have no validity in the 21st century. We have science now, to explain the universe & the climate.

    # ahamed naja: It's always amazed me how such an incredibly silly and ridiculous idea as an invisible super being up the sky who made everything just for fun managed to last so long. We have science now, we have evidence, fact, reason, logic, research and peer review. We are long, long, long past the need to believe in fairies, pixies, gods, demons, and monsters.

    The ancient tanks should be dredged so they are much deeper than when they were built to hold more water. Parakrama Bahu's ocean is ideal to make it much deeper and thereby avoid the problems of drougt.

    # Mr. Plod: Yes , if you checked the news NY is 50% back to normal in the second day after the devastating storm. By next week everything would be back to normal in the 'Big Apple". Americans do not wait around for a hand outs or for help from outside sources. If there is a problem they tackle it themselves.

    DHA Thursday, 01 November 2012 08:12 AM

    Everyone please stay safe.....and residence living near Nilwala please be extra cautious of crocodiles......

    mamath Thursday, 01 November 2012 08:02 AM

    May the clouds give rain in proper time And crops yield harvest
    May the whole world be happy and hale And rulers be righteous!

    Can any one tell me why there are 3 dislikes for this awesome comment. BTW Sri Lankan government is in debt of 6 trillion, and we will definitely borrow more. Why cant we be prepared for natural disaster like this.

    Observer Friday, 02 November 2012 10:32 PM

    When natural disasters hit America, some Sri Lankans said that it was an act of God! When natural disasters hit Sri Lanka I wonder what kind of an act that is?
