Angampora, the traditional martial art form of Sri Lanka and known to be one of the oldest fighting disciplines in the world was staged last night on the banks of Mulleriyawa lake to commemorate the 450th anniversary of the victory at the battle of Mulleriyawa. The Battle of Mulleriyawa was a battle between the Sinhalese and Portuguese in 1652 where the Portuguese army was routed out in the fields of Mulleriyawa. Pix by Kushan Pathiraja

    Have some respect, you ungrateful wretch. This is what enabled us to give such a fight to the European colonists. People like you need to take the next boat out of Sri Lanka and go far away, you make me sick. Disgusting animal.
