    These young, brave soldiers always shed their sweat and blood.for our country. They defeated the tigers, they saved th country from Muslim extremists and now they are fighting to save the lives of people from a virus. People always give the credit to politicians who are robbing this country..

    These are unsung heroes, I mean the rank and file, not only the multi star officers or the retired ones. Why cover them in secrecy with Curfew when they return?

    @harsha sk well said. Gratitude to those who protect the country and also to all the healthcare workers that risk their lives daily to save lives. Let's not forget our history or we will repeat the same mistakes, the State sponsored violence committed through our armed forces, then we had the JVP Sinhalese Marxist Communist insurrections, then the Tamil Tigers, then we had the Easter bombings by Islamic Extremists.
