This is what happens when you leave that godforsaken country. No honest person, without political connections, will ever fulfil their potential in Sri Lanka. Paradise for whom ?

Her name does not sound like that she has to flee the country due to 1983 riots, but her parents may have used the opportunity to migrate at that time. But , that was a right thing to do and loot at you , you have been very successful in your new country. We are happy for you.
Unless wealthy, and having connection who would want to live here anymore Monday, 10 July 2023 02:16 PM
The riots of 1983 made it unpleasant for Sinhala people with long time traditional Sinhala surname look for better more peaceable environments too. Your supposed surname is from foreign country, and the you are obviously in Australia with your commending her to successful in that country.
A lot of racism in Australia to Sri Lankan origin from the Aboriginal Monday, 10 July 2023 06:48 AM
My children are in Australia, and I know there are quota for job and education system for the Aboriginal there that took away opportunities from my children and grandchildren. Even best qualified non-Aboriginal not given chance when there is an Aboriginal around. Now the Aboriginal want even more rights against immigrants with their Voice backed by the government there. My family member and all those of Sri Lankan origin they know of will all vote against it.

Absolutely not true to say that 'even best qualified non-Aboriginal not given chance when there is an Aboriginal around'. You have not received accurate information. I do not know of a deserving student who was not able to access tertiary education based on merit in Australia. I also can vouch that employment is based on merit. Possibly you may have received this information from someone with a serious chip on their shoulders. The voice referandum vote is yet to happen, but rather than gaining information based on rumour and political biases once should study the details for themselves and be educated before voting on it.

Don't be sad to leave Sri Lanka. We are all happy you have left this yakko country. If you were in SL, you would not have shined the way you have now. The best Sri Lanka would have done is send you as a housemaid to Middle East.
