    The people who are affected are the poor and the feeble. Do the Govt. care? This is another way of suffocating the people in the North and the east.

    So sad!. Anyone can call me anything they like, but the truth is, Sri Lanka will never recover from these natural desasters as long as this 'Adarmishta' regime exists.
    The next epedemic will be 'Cholera' for sure. The negative energies of the innocent civillians (on both sides), fell during the three decades will be there for a very long time to come.
    It is time to open the hearts of the once compassionate, loving and caring Ceylonese people to the present situation.
    My you all be well in 2011.
