    SL you sound like one of the stranded students. FYI 'stupidest' is not a word...the proper word is 'most stupid' just like your comment.

    TOO MUCH OF SMART IS GOOD FOR NOTHING NO ONE IS PREPARED TO LEARN LESSONS FROM PAST ACTIVITES THAT HAS OCCURED

    Some of them didn't like army training. If they had army training this wouldn't have happened. When they were in trouble only the army rescued them and not the student unionists.

    Jaffna U students are smarter alow them on their own they know what is good and bad.

    rima Monday, 17 December 2012 11:03 AM

    All because of military training

    Shan Monday, 17 December 2012 03:29 AM

    Hantaana is ' not so bad' That's why our 'Real Stars' were able to rescue.........

    Lobo Monday, 17 December 2012 11:19 AM

    By providing them everything free the Govt has taken away the ability for them to think on their own. Thats why they always rely on someone to help and guide them.

    Hardball Monday, 17 December 2012 03:40 AM

    Lake of thinking or IQ makes things like this happen.

    Nodrog Monday, 17 December 2012 03:48 AM

    Free education doesn't seem to have smartened them up.

    suba anagathayak. congrats...

    Goraka Bilin Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:06 AM

    I think the problem is they misunderstood Amaradeva's song. "Hanthane kandu muduna sisaara, pawanak wee innam" They only thought it was a "Mada pawana" not a cyclone.

    mamath Monday, 17 December 2012 01:12 PM

    In 9 months results can be seen

    SL Monday, 17 December 2012 05:54 AM
