A teenage girl and a boy who were in love jumped down the Hirana new bridge into the Bolgoda River in the early hours of this morning. The girl was saved by the employees of a nearby hotel with the help of a fisherman however, the boy has died.
It is reported that they had decided to commit suicide when the girl’s parents warned her to give up her relationship with the victim.
The victim was identified as S.A.Kavindu Dilshan, a resident of Madapatha. Piliyandala. His body was recovered a short while ago by the Navy divers.
Inquiries revealed that he was a student of a school in Wellawatte and his fiancée a student of a girls’ school in Moratuwa. (Kusal Chamath)

Thank God I have passed that age. When I was a teen I too was so immature like this girl. We have to be very diplomatic with our kids, not to loose them. Very sad !

Society is to blame when they both try to commit sucide. Class,Caste,Religion,Family etc.

Come forward, now we're in the 21st century. Both of them liked and match their heart each other and made a decision to start an affair with hopes but a valuable future generation was gone for a single word of you. Parent's proposals are also been good and bad decision for some but its duties of parents to investigate whether the morals of the youths are for good deed and not for bad such as making pregnant leaving behind and absconding. My appeal to all parents is to come away from the 17th century and look forward....... Ahamed from Saudi Arabia

Navin Wednesday, 09 March 2011 06:33 AM
Nope. They would have just committed suicide for something else.
Nina Kamal Wednesday, 09 March 2011 06:36 AM
What a shame - too young and helpless!!! The unnecessary mental pressure from the elders!!! There is a saying - Aa vare-ta-aa-gedi!!!! - If not now, when will they enjoy! My prayers and thoughts are for the love one - Well, for now leave it to fate!

this is an example for how spoiled our children are. most of the tele dramas telecasting in SL TVs are spoiling our young generation

Should reduce watching hindi movies, all the myth is taken in real life and young minds are fed with these illusions. Waste of a valuable life.

What do u mean love affair between school children ? They're not babies. It's biological.. Every teenager cant control their teenage feelings.. Elders should understand and act accordingly..

I don't understand, how on earth, people like you could crack a joke on somebody's death. Life is the gift of GOD and one has no right to kill yourself neither another.
Patriot Wednesday, 09 March 2011 10:40 AM
bollywood, kollywood and sinhala movies. Most of the movies produced by the same remain "SHIT"

I sent a fax to Pakistan tribal leader stating that I am in deep love & cant marry the girl and asked advises. He sent me back a fax asking if I can drive a truck. :)

That's right. It was just that the girl had tricked him nicely.
