    Much adore about our "Dharma-deepaya"! Even temples are not spared!!! Are people so desperate to make ends meet or is stealing become an integral part of our culture condoned by the executive branch and down?

    God Kataragama must have taken them for safekeping after seeing what is happening around the country. No point in having a police investigation on this.

    Everybody knows who are the robbers. Ultimately some innocent guy would be the victim.

    If it happened in the Colombo museum, what is the use of talking about the Wedihiti Kanda?

    The actual culture of the majority and their leaders are showing.

    Even in the Temple's God hasn't power. clergy, politicians,Dayaka sabawa and the hamuduruwo has a power
    statues no power. even the peon has more power.

    Could someone kindly check whether GOD is still there ?
