    Children can come back to schools with a dawn of a new era. SF era.

    This is the norm in Sri Lanka unless you are not living on that island. Schools become the polling booths whenever elections are held you silly billy. Old or new government has nothing to do with it.

    Mahinda's govt. is a new govt.? I think he needs no oath to take as he is in the throne, Okay, why do these comments here, do our children need any education on these new era talk- moreover it is not bad either to take schools as polling stations and return back clean this is the practice all over the world- is there any alternative? I'm curious to know.
