    bimbo Friday, 13 July 2012 09:53 AM

    No argument, it should have written in Tamil FIRST!!! Give respect to have respect......

    Tamil & English languages looks been erased with famous white colour.

    Sando Friday, 13 July 2012 10:24 AM

    No matter Sinhala or Tamil pray for water for poor farmers

    Effects of the drought is depressing. And, what on Earth happened to the Tamil & English words? Even the drought cannot cause them to disappear!

    Fusion Friday, 13 July 2012 11:13 AM

    Thats no excuse. Standard way is to have Sinhala, Tamil & English. This is an insult to people who don't speak sinhala. Whats so difficult about having three Languages. There is plenty of room.

    dinesh Friday, 13 July 2012 11:07 PM

    how sad...people are much concerned about Tamil and Sinhala and not about the Farmers.
    Yes its Tamil and Sinhala which feeds them

    This is yakka country. So only Yakka language shown.

    deva Saturday, 14 July 2012 06:47 AM

    This shown situation caused by not only the drought. There was no water management at all. That because where this water used by Tamils only. You can see that in the name stone.
