    This is call “Sapaththu palama”, and this is one of the ways to reduce water from over flowed tank (Vava).

    This is Sri Lanka culture. They have these nice "sayings" written but their deeds are bad.

    It is a saddest news over all forms of flood victimization......really heartrending news.....please look at the infant even in small pits or the underneath of bus chassis

    pure stupidity paid heavily by the motor bike travelers.
    I was driving this road a few times. they could have let the bus go before walking across with the family. what can i say. stupid.

    Aiyo... The bus windscreen says "Sambudu Saranai" but no sarana for those asarnayos.

    Specially when the roads are flooded and when dealing with stupid and selfich bus drivers, the prudent thing to do is to get off the bike when you see a bus and let that pass you.

    Fix CCTV Cameras in rural areas also. Most of fatal accidents are from these areas.
