    Copying Dr Abdul Kalam style like the way he stopped at a tea boutique at his way in India. To be like Dr Abdul Kalam you should have at least some level of knowledge too !! Not only actions !! Any how good try.

    Brother , i too disappointed with the way the current country situation , but please make sure not to use abusive words against the president.

    Sujeewa Devarani Sunday, 28 October 2012 08:28 PM

    So, you trust a politicians charisma and PR more than his actual intentions? Bloody fool. Go ahead, vote for him againand prolong your misery.

    Kos Ata Cabraal Sunday, 28 October 2012 08:35 PM

    Shame. Look at that selfish toad gobbling Annasi in front of that little child who must have been starving all morning..

    Saman Sunday, 28 October 2012 10:05 PM

    MR is just eating a part of pineapple like most people do. What is wrong with that? He isn't eating caviar sipping Champaign.

    gamunu Sunday, 28 October 2012 10:32 PM

    Mr. President, beware of the person next to you. He is the most dangerous person in Gampaha...."patta pal hora"

    C. Seneveratne Sunday, 28 October 2012 11:29 PM

    Its better to eat pineapple than bread now.

    "Pic Courtesy President’s Media" means this is a publicity propaganda. If the photo was taken by any of the DM photographer it is worth story.

    I have to disagree with you when he visited Singapore early this year.

    He visited Singapore with a huge entourage including his second son, but never explaind what he gaind out of this official visit.

    Just attended Sri Lankan gathering organised by the embassy as if just to fulfil his official duties.

    We poor people are suffering while elite class and politicians having having luxury life style, Street dramas are popular in Sri lanka.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 28 October 2012 01:54 PM

    You will see real "relief" when the Budget is presented next week. Already prices of several items including bread are up with a water tax hovering around. very soon the poor citizens would not be able to afford even a slice of pineapple although the Royal family would enjoy all the luxuries.

    truth Sunday, 28 October 2012 02:05 PM

    He may be telling them, "If you cannot afford bread or roti, eat pineapple like me"
