Why are these people running away from the "Miracle of Asia" to the "Lucky Country" Downunder"?.Probably they don't believe in miracles anymore and have virtually given up through frustration.Nothing much seems to have changed since independence except that life is getting harder and harder by the day for the people of Sri Lanka..They are even prepared to sacrifice their lives for a better future in this beautiful country.
