    I guess this is to remember our late heros like Hasalaka Gamini Kobbakaduwa Wimalarathna etc. Wonder why these people sacrifice their lives. via DM Android App

    Prabha only lived in the jungles........no junctions there!

    Devinda Monday, 11 August 2014 05:37 PM

    Prabakaran was a terrorist who is responsible for thousands of lives of innocent children, women and men of all casts and religions.
    Tamil Kings were not murderers, they were hon arable Kings. Sri Lanka belongs to all of its sons and daughters hence everyone has the right to respect all these noble people who did a yeoman service to them. We all have to be tolerant and respectful of our differences. If not there will be no safe future for our children.

    Have you never heard of Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe, the last king of Sri Lanka who was a Tamil from the Madurai royal family?

    Rukshi Tuesday, 12 August 2014 02:07 AM

    Is it another step to strengthen the claim for Tamil homeland, which is a myth.
