    When i visited Sri lanka I went to Nuwara Eliya and i saw boat trips without life jackets they are taking for a boat ride.i did,nt go for it because there is no life sawing jackets.

    If those people had life sawing jackets they will be alive today.

    Tony, you don't "SAW" life-it's save life.

    all victims are buddhists. the reckless boat operator who didn't provide life vests was catholic. say amen to that!

    We have to refrain from making racist comments here.
    Such people with narrow minded thinking are a great bottleneck to the development of the country.
    We can prosper only when we maintain unity among diversity.
    Those who died here are not muslims here. Whoever they are they have wives, husbands children etc at home and they all are in grief now.
    Those who make foolish comments must think that if this happens for you what would be your situation!

    LIFE JACKETS !. You are suggesting ,, sorry, saying life jackets.
    Wake up buddy, this is Sri Lanka where anything goes.

    I know these people since I'm from the same resident area. They are all bhudists. In fact, much more active bhuddhis than you or me in the temple and related activities.
