I'm sure the anti-Sri Lankan commenters will find this hard to swallow and find something negative to say. To them I say.....shove it up as far as it will go!

Iam very glad to see the world is begining to understand what is the sri lankan government is doing to emiliorate the economic and social condition of the people. I hope all the people in srilanka join with the government at least for one or two years to improve the economy without putting forward excessive wage demand If you do this Iam sure all the in the country will benefit.
