While saying that the future of Sri Lanka will be determined by those who are willing to think differently, Sri Lanka-born Khamshajiny Gunaratnam, who is the current Deputy Mayor of Norway’s Capital Oslo, said she believes the youth in Sri Lanka could make a change. 

She expressed these views during an interview with the Daily Mirror recently. 

“Speak up your mind, listen to each other and co-operate. Staying in our comfort zone with the same people will not bring any progress to you as a person or for this country as a whole,” she said.

“Go out there, seek different people and talk to someone you never thought you could talk to,” she added.

    Very true indeed. If we cannot bring about a change now, we are doomed as a country. All politicians have made their money. They are not paupers.Youth must think outside the box and lead the way.

    This is a good example for all those who want to grow in life - GET OUT of SL to become somebody in life.

    Youngest can change their mind and can build a prosperous country and society only if their environment allows them to do so.

    She preaches 'Vedi Bana'. Didn't she carry the Tiger flag in Oslo before?
