    Am sure Dr Nandalal would have refused to do something which he considered not quite right when asked by Ravi.

    Governor, don't take these utterances very seriously. He is talking with a vengeance.

    This man is suffering from amnesia. Pls Doctor have mercy on him. He does not remember even his own wife and daughter

    Patriotic officers in Central bank leaked details of robbery of bonds issued which is unheard anywhere in the world, but your plans were backfired after your wife and daughter hesitated to buy Anika's penthouse, for your share, so it's your fault why try revenge on officers of the central bank

    Always admired your integrity Dr.Indrajit. Called you " The Renaissance Man" in an editorial I wrote in the " Ceylon Today" when you took over at the CB. Go for it and expose every vile swindler who has abused the public trust and defaecated on the noble oaths of high office. What an incredible fact that they still have the right to sit in parliament when they should be rotting in jail.And what the deuce is the President doing about getting Mahendran to court , by the scruff of his neck? Alas! It appeared to happen to the LTTE'S mass murderer 'KP' , but to what end ? Whither conscience and morality?
