Any person has money can hire a helicopter from Airforce or anywhere for your information whether it is Yahapalanaya or any other palanaya...

Mr. Raj, it is not the habit of civilised people to talk about skin colour. Since you have raised a question on skin colour, I have no option but to answer you to provide you some education. While Blacks, Sinhalises and Tamils are all human beings, Blacks have black colour skin and Sinhalese are known to have brown colour skin. Apparently, Tamiks also known to have black colour skin too. I hope you understood my Aristotlian logic!!!!!

How did the media and its photographers get there so quickly? Instead of a helicopter maybe one of the paparazzi could have given him a ride to the hospital.

Whoever the person is, let us pray for a speedy recovery for him, and the doctors who would attend on this human being be led by divine power to administer the proper medical treatment on him. May God Bless him.

OF course he is the presidents brother.even last regime it was the same.

there is no different between Tamils and Singhalese internal violence. What is the reason behind increased violence among Sri Lankan? In many parts of the world mostly Blacks fight with each other. Most of police news are about black. What similarities do both Blacks and Singhalese have?

This is a heinous act of violence. It does not matter who did it to whom and whose brother. The underlying message is that we as a society has become more violent and intolerant. My humble request to others is not to bring in petty political agendas in to any incident of this nature...
janendra Friday, 27 March 2015 03:02 PM
reply to Raj : this can not be generalized....this type of violence is there among the so called civilized westerners also.... (refer frequent shooting incidents in USA targeting innocent civilians often children) and remember since u talk about skin colour remember that there had not been a single black or coloured seriel killer in the history....so please do not point fingers at one group for such inhuman acts..., whether i like the current president or not this is a human life....wasting a life or threatening such should be condemned...

Hey guys how about the white pilot who crashed the airplane with 149 people in it? I would like someone to respond to that please?
Gnesha Friday, 27 March 2015 03:06 PM
This man Raj could have been silent instead of making an unnecessary irrelevant demented comment which seems to be something somewhere wrong with is man

AT LEAST NOW CAN YOU PEOPLE STOP TALKING ABOUT COLOR AND ETHNICITY. THESE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS AND EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS A WEAKNESS. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COLOR OR RACE. IF YOU CAN USE YOUR INTELLIGENCE YOU CAN PREVENT VIOLENCE

Live in peace and not in pieces. Love one another for God is of love.

@Raj you are correct, Tamil are the Blacks in Sri Lanka, Singhalese of course rather Indians, not blacks, they are friendly people. Thanks for reminding the truth.
Leena Friday, 27 March 2015 03:39 PM
If the farmer has medical insurance. Then yes
dammika Friday, 27 March 2015 03:43 PM
Will there be similar treatment if similar/much serious accident happen to a general public or a person who needs the same care???
Yodaya Saturday, 28 March 2015 06:54 AM
Who is going to pay the helicopter bill?
