    Please relese SF

    Faqi Friday, 19 November 2010 08:39 AM

    It appears that in Sri Lanka we have not done away with superstitions at all, although we live in the 21st century, people still believe in auspicious times & horoscopes etc. How come the advanced countries do not have auspicious times for doing anything and they are progressing? Not only are they progressing they all are giving us aid.

    upul Friday, 19 November 2010 08:43 AM

    Long live President, and congrats for your second term

    MW Friday, 19 November 2010 08:56 AM

    that's the difference !

    Siripala Friday, 19 November 2010 08:58 AM

    That's because they don't wast time on these meaningless things... Instead they try to do something to develop their country.

    Sangeeth Friday, 19 November 2010 09:01 AM

    Madam Rajapaksha missing, where is she? !!!!!!!!!!!

    Concerned Citizen Friday, 19 November 2010 01:50 PM

    Yes, because the man who was truly elected as President is behind bars.

    anura Saturday, 20 November 2010 07:11 PM

    congratulations to total family business!!

    gona Friday, 19 November 2010 09:13 AM

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Friday, 19 November 2010 09:20 AM

    Faqi Friday, 19 November 2010 09:22 AM

    Does she feel shy?

    Senaka Wickramasingh Friday, 19 November 2010 09:30 AM

    Look at the 4th picture idiot! She is behind MR. Watch TV news later.

    Sangeeth Friday, 19 November 2010 09:31 AM

    Faqi Friday, 19 November 2010 09:36 AM

    Why only Monks can't stand up?

    Hassen Friday, 19 November 2010 09:42 AM

    Well............... now MR & Co. will be relieved........
    They wanted to make sure that the true lion General Sarath Fonseka is caged until the conclusion of this "Oath" ceremony.

    spark Friday, 19 November 2010 09:48 AM

    The ones shown in the photograph have sinned heavily and the weight of that does not allow them to stand up.
