    Making up for the mistake? Well, the Indian curry better out do Chinese. Maybe a little too late. All the other countries better get the message that we are not push overs anymore.

    Seems this is the only type of 'goodwill' we can expect from India. Rest of the time its backstabbing and bullying.

    all these naval ships coming from various countries and trying to curry flavor with Sri Lanka reminds one of Peter Seller's old film "The mouse that roared"

    Watch it when 'Greeks come bearing gifts" . Did not the Indian PM bow down to pressure from the Tamil Nadu politicians and boycott the Commonwealth Heads conference in Colombo? Indians cannot be trusted at all. They try to treat Sri Lanka like one of their states.
