    Father Like Sons....Children always learn the most from their parents and are mostly molded according to their home environment.

    Whether the father is right or wrong, the two sons had now paved the way to hell for millions of years where a sin of such category is much closer to the worst 5 sins where the one who commits has no chance to escape what so ever!

    Southerners are cunning which is an old saying and true. But the biggest thug, arrogant, chandi talk is not from south but from Kelaniya!

    Totally agree with you. A very appropriate comments. Thanks

    Most of the policemen are very inhuman and they do not know to address the common man irrespective of one's age or status, so obviously their children too follow them and there is nothing to get alarmed when it boomerangs.

    Father tasting his own medicine.

    Lakmikanth Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:08 AM

    After all he was the father of these two sons. Either police officer
    or a most wanted criminal the act of two sons can not be appreciated. If they act against their father in this manner ,nothing to talk about the rest of the society.

    Above the crowd Wednesday, 24 November 2010 08:16 AM

    I am sure the father must be a saint, Didn't do any harm even to a cockroach!!!

    Rohan Wednesday, 24 November 2010 09:33 AM

    cant agree with you more. If I may add, what must be the cause for the 2 guys to act like this?

    jayasiri Wednesday, 24 November 2010 11:08 AM

    Sons grew up seeing what father was doing to other people!

    ROSHAN RAZ Wednesday, 24 November 2010 11:12 AM

    following the footsteps of their father probably.

    lord Wednesday, 24 November 2010 12:12 PM

    I beg your pardon............after all this is the 'Wonder of Asia'

    Oyage sudu kella Wednesday, 24 November 2010 02:28 PM

    Not next birth, this birth itself father has seen results of his own doings.

    Selective Justice: If the father is a drunkard while his sons are sober the father be punished; if the sons are addicts and the father is not then the sons be punished, if all are addicts?

    This is the result of Buddhist monks taking up politics without propagating Dhamma and neglecting to lay the foundation for a righteous society.

    Perera Tuesday, 23 November 2010 04:17 PM

    Boomerang ,, nice lesson to all people specially politicians and government workers

    ampare son Tuesday, 23 November 2010 04:18 PM

    Pan Bakka Tuesday, 23 November 2010 04:44 PM

    Like father, like son. What's wrong with it? Father assaults university students, sons assault father. Violence begets violence.

    Suri Tuesday, 23 November 2010 04:47 PM

    what ever the provocation, it is an evil thing to assault a parent.

    Kimbula Tuesday, 23 November 2010 05:17 PM

    Sri Lankan culture at its level best....

    Tusith Tuesday, 23 November 2010 06:15 PM

    After all this is Ratgama.

    Daya Tuesday, 23 November 2010 06:49 PM

    The Police must have common sense.???
    Why did the two sons attack father?
    Why did they not look into the bevahour of father before any arrest? CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS RIGHT ???
    There is something fishy.

    manmohan Tuesday, 23 November 2010 07:18 PM

    NO WOnder ................
    Just like they attack University students... kids reply !

    vadivel Tuesday, 23 November 2010 07:22 PM

    King Kong Tuesday, 23 November 2010 04:10 PM

    Following the footsteps of our patriotic politicians.

    Kithul Ramba Tuesday, 23 November 2010 08:52 PM

    New trend in Sri Lanka now. Hit first then become a thug.

    shace-UK Tuesday, 23 November 2010 09:57 PM

    teri amara Tuesday, 23 November 2010 10:11 PM

    Typical of the Ratgama breed!!!

    charlie Tuesday, 23 November 2010 11:41 PM

    So what? Anybody's child can be rebellious at this age.

    Anver Wednesday, 24 November 2010 12:08 AM

    Such acts against parents are deplorable. However, such incidents do occur when a father mistreats family members under influence of liquor, resulting in retaliation by grown up kids.

    MagodisThuma Wednesday, 24 November 2010 01:19 AM

    When he behave like a Ralahamy at home....

    Little voice Wednesday, 24 November 2010 01:49 AM

    Like father , like son? Anyway before jumping into any conclusions we need to know the reasons behind such a scuffle. All the same, a very sad turn of events.

    lalith w Wednesday, 24 November 2010 02:29 AM

    Little voice your extreamly correct

    spark Wednesday, 24 November 2010 02:37 AM

    Not only Ratgama, this is typical southern way of sorting things. Look around and see the mentality of three wheeler drivers, bus drivers, policement, parliment ministers...all have the common arrogance and chandi talk.
