    immysl Wednesday, 27 October 2010 10:02 AM

    BY SMASHING COCONUTS- THERE IS NO REAL MEANING TO IT- JUST ANOTHER SHOT IN THE POOR MANS STOMACH

    Afker Hussain Thursday, 28 October 2010 11:00 AM

    Make artificial coconuts and then peoples can smash those till there hearts content and leave the the rest for consumption. at a stable price.

    JD Thursday, 28 October 2010 05:52 AM

    Maybe Migara is having wealth enough. that's why he's not worried about the cost of living. but It isn't the same for the rest of the population in the country. He should find out how a living today is difficult. regret for not seeing the reality.

    dumb & brumer Thursday, 28 October 2010 05:57 AM

    the coconuts that are smashed are not wasted, they pieces are collected and used for cooking.

    Lamaya Thursday, 28 October 2010 06:15 AM

    Like Anoma Fonseka?

    polkiccha Thursday, 28 October 2010 06:33 AM

    some insane acts that make you wonder what century u live in
    1/smashing coconuts
    2/sacrifice animals
    3/bathing bodhis in milk

    call it culture , belief i call it stupidity. no matter who does it

    Burampi Thursday, 28 October 2010 06:50 AM

    will ask Docters to say Cocunet Milk is unhealthy. People will stop eating cocenet. price will go dopwn. Please appoint a Minister for coconut affairs.

    Faqi Thursday, 28 October 2010 06:55 AM

    Smashing coconuts have nothing to do with any religion, they are superstitious practices by the gullible and foolish. In which religious or holy book do they say to smash coconuts? None.
    As humans advance in the evolutionary scale, most of this nonsense would stop when they come to a realization how foolish they are to indulge in meaningless practices.

    Kundu mali Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:23 PM

    I am sure it is a waste. Let make coconut rock I love them. Treat the kids in some care homes. God will like that instead of blocking the drains and let dengue spread.

    Bird Eye Wednesday, 27 October 2010 07:32 PM

    Social injustice is the cause of smashing coconuts.

    dil Thursday, 28 October 2010 12:31 PM

    no not cooking! can be used to make "Koppara"!

    Kurunegala Pol Idam Thursday, 28 October 2010 01:05 PM

    I am sure the Bogollagamas are not to be blamed!

    Michael Pantaleon Thursday, 28 October 2010 07:25 AM

    No God will like cursing,instead Gods are curing people.Almighty God help these idiots to clear their brains from madness of political ravage.

    Cynic Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:35 AM

    Then why did bread go up? Feeding those who "farce" unto death?

    Mohamed Wednesday, 27 October 2010 11:35 AM

    Now U don't give them ideas about cutting Dehi. Already there is a Scarcity of Lime in the market.

    PM Thursday, 28 October 2010 01:48 AM

    How stupid are these people? What in the world!! Can smashing coconuts solve problems????????

    winnie Thursday, 28 October 2010 01:52 AM

    why about at Kataragama Devale, Munneswaram Kotahena Kali kovils and host of Hindu kovils , Is anybody trying to curb religious rituals and create another issue

    Hemantha Thursday, 28 October 2010 03:37 AM

    Why not make coconut out of plastic.

    Knight Rider Thursday, 28 October 2010 03:43 AM

    are the coconuts supplied free of charge ?

    Deepal Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:13 PM

    File action against Fonseka

    Deepal Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:16 PM

    Only Lemon Puff prices remain stable.

    migara Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:45 AM

    culprits - Anoma Fonseka, Ekneligoda's wife, Ranil Wickremesinghe.....after that they all shout about high cost of living

    malkanthi Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:47 AM

    smashing of coconut has been a practice in kovils for donkeys years? but those do this for cursing must have irritated the gods, causing this shortage!

    Niro Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:48 AM

    Very funny........Stop smashing coconuts give them milk packets to smash.....

    Nina Kamal Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:39 PM

    Lets ask SB D to talk about this during the next session in the parliament!

    Chow Chow Wednesday, 27 October 2010 09:49 AM

    Oh I see. A lot of people are smashing coconuts. I guess they have some with somebody.

    JoeT Thursday, 28 October 2010 04:39 AM

    Mara traders...smashing cocunuts or not, wonder why they are giving excuses for selling more coconuts...sounds strange

    ruzaik Wednesday, 27 October 2010 01:49 PM

    Smashing Coconuts ???? why not Smash the opponents heads...

    MF Thursday, 28 October 2010 04:41 AM

    I agree with you, Our people are very ignorant although the authorities boast of 90% literacy rate in our country. And more over cursing another person is a grave sin.
