    are you trying to fool us by taking a photo in a wax museum

    Perumal Wednesday, 25 September 2013 09:20 AM

    Actually, until now I believed our president was the tallest President, here in Sri Lanka and abroad. Anyway, he talks tall.

    PRASANNAJIT Wednesday, 25 September 2013 09:31 AM

    Whatever MR says against USA, he takes pride in taking a photo with Obama. When he comes back will start bashing USA.

    Photoshop can do marvelous paste ups nowadays.
    Hope this is not the same guy who did the pasting up last time.
    This is a better skilful attempt.
    Congrats!

    Lanka Shantha Wednesday, 25 September 2013 02:01 PM

    Media reports says this was just a photo session only, not a meeting between presidents.

    Observer Wednesday, 25 September 2013 03:14 PM

    Great honour to the Sri Lankan president to be in the big league where all other Sri Lankan presidents were just numbers

    Rohana Wednesday, 25 September 2013 07:12 AM

    The same generosity and friendliness that you both having in the picture should be shown with true heart in every affairs between our nations which will help to every community in both countries. Please don't harm country by commenting our affairs by looking incorrect way of thinking. Be like former Presidents who looked to other country's progress and not the downfall.

    Will it be possible to frame this photo due to Obama's exposure of 32 teeth in his mouth.

    Rationalist Wednesday, 25 September 2013 07:29 AM

    Why do the MARAs look so incongruous, with their Artificially blackened Hair? Grow up gracefully I say!
