    She must be sitting on SuperGlu for sure.
    Shame on Royal !

    Ela kelle ela !

    Dr Leonard Pinto Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:20 AM

    Disce aut Discede (learn or depart in Latin).

    Bodu Bala Sena style has invaded the Royal. Now, there is nothing Royal left in this institution. It is a reflection of the country, where the police is corrupt, judiciary is politicised and administration is ineffective. Royalists, it is time for you to depart from what you have learnt.

    Disgrace... she should be expelled even if her original claim of vengeance is true.

    dian Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:37 AM

    I am proud to be a royalist :-P

    mervyn Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:37 AM

    Deplorable social situation in Sri Lanka.

    Akram Yusuf Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:48 AM

    I am so sad to see a teacher from my alma mater having to go through such drastic actions to get herself heard. Why is this teacher bing transferred?
    I am ashamed to se such horrible and insensitive comments being posted. What if this was your mother or sister?

    KaluSudha Tuesday, 30 July 2013 03:40 PM

    she tought me sinhala language and literature to me when i was in grade 10 and 11. She is a very good teacher. There is no doubt about that. But unfortunately she has not added anything to her life from her subject :(

    Meril Tuesday, 30 July 2013 06:52 PM

    I am a Royalist. There should be an investigation to find the root cause of the problem, proper action should be taken thereafter. Then should find out who helped her to get up there. Finally the teacher, and everyone who helped her should be fired. She is setting a bad influence among the students.

    Ranil Tuesday, 30 July 2013 07:02 PM

    Nobody is worried about her side of story. Somebody must get. Her story

    Ranil Tuesday, 30 July 2013 07:04 PM

    Worried about her. We should listen 2 her side of the story

    Kudda Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:35 PM

    What an example to set? On a different note, why are all the students so fat at Royal. Same goes to the said teacher.

    Observer Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:47 PM

    This is absolutely an example of the "development" in Sri Lanka!

    daya weerasinghe Tuesday, 30 July 2013 11:53 PM

    looks like she doesn`t know any body or somebody who knows somebody.....otherwise she wouldn`t be in this situation.!

    Disgusted Wednesday, 31 July 2013 09:49 AM

    How would she face the students after this if her transfer is cancelled. In our youth we respected our teachers. All we can say is, Discede madam.

    nimanthi Wednesday, 14 August 2013 07:12 PM

    The example she is setting is to stand up for yourself

    Dil Tuesday, 30 July 2013 06:50 AM

    johan Tuesday, 30 July 2013 04:43 AM

    The college must preserve its reputation.Whatever may be
    the must bring disciplined teachers to bring
    forward disciplined children.Teachers must set example
    to the children

    Gerard Tuesday, 30 July 2013 04:47 AM

    Vengeance has become the twin motto of this regime, together with corruption.

    PRADEEP Tuesday, 30 July 2013 04:39 AM

    Such things have never been reported from these premier schools in the country. Such teachers are a shame for the great teachers in the past. This is a clear indication of how our society have collapsed. How could such teachers are being respected by students and society.
