    This is Sinhalese culture, nothing to be surprised. The DIG's constable would have done the same thing if I was to overtake him.

    Maybe you should take your ignorant racist self and tell all your problems to the high caste tamils and maybe they will point you to your rightful place among the sakkiliar and arunthathiyar people.

    It's more of a South Asian culture, idolising and putting up with all the nonsense of the people who are voted into positions of power
