Unarguably, the best political leader we ever had in this country, although ungrateful people vilified him too and then regretted when he passed away. One would never see such an honest politician in this country any more.

Sri Lanka can never dream of having politicians like Father of the nation D.S.Senanayake and son Dudley.They are great people to be remembered.

Some one related to me that Dudley visited Trincomalee in 1968 without a single body guard or security. Can a PC member go around nowadays without any escort?

Did "world renowned historian, Professor John Holt William R Kenan Jnr." really blame the Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge genocide on Cambodian Buddhists? The KR regime was completely anti-Buddhist, destroying temples, eliminating scriptures and literature, and killing almost all monks to return Cambodia to Year Zero.
