    India has been hoodwinking Sri Lanka for centuries. Even at a time of a crisis, India is doing that. Instead of sending a ship, they could have sent the relief items in the hand luggage of one of the cigarette packet couriers who go up and down from India to Sri Lanka.

    Indiais not at all a helpful neighbour. China is very much better. Look at the trade balance Our exports to them is very much lower than imports from them and this has prevailed for the last several decades They are only interested in helping and developing North only and it is crystal clear when you analyze the assistance granted to Srilanka d uring the past three or four years!
