    Avi Jonathan Wednesday, 13 October 2010 10:07 PM

    We have to celebrate this as a nation. Otherwise in near future we will hear 'well done jaffna boys' or 'well done Baticalla boys'...This will make no good to the country.

    Avi Jonathan Wednesday, 13 October 2010 10:28 PM

    Congratulation!!!
    I liked the way you showed the gratitude towards the people who helped you to achieve. Truly Sri Lankan way...
    Proud of you. Keep it up.
