    When Sri Lanka gained freedom from the British occupation in 1948, literacy in Sri Lanka was nearly 80%, literacy in India which also almost at the same time came out of British occupation was below 40%, and in Iran it was below 20%. The Sinhalese Politicians have simply wrecked Sri Lanka in the last 75 years.

    Jaffna Logic, Please don't forget the most important thing in this exercise - National Awakening and Consciousness - Improved by massive strides after gaining Independence and especially after 1956 - almost same time as 'Sangha, Guru, Vedha, Kamkaru' led by our own "Solomon West Ridgeway" awakened to make Sri Lanka - BETTER PLACE TO LIVE!!! Liberated from the SHACKLES of COLONIALISM!? On the contrary, we as Nation have progressed and achieved greater Heights Societal Well-Being to SURMOUNT “starvation” lately very successfully!? Sri Lanka Has survived by its OWN Logic, of all hues and Shades!! What Magnificent Country and Emancipated People??? Even though they are devoid or delinquent of Literacy!!???

    HOW MANY SRI LANKAN NAVY SHIPS WENT TO FORMAL VISIT ABROAD AFTER INDEPENDENT???

    CAUTION CAUTION Saturday, 17 February 2024 12:20 AM

    NEVER HEARD OF A IRANIAN SHIP/S VISIT THE COUNTRY BEFORE. HOWEVER, WHY ALL OF A SUDDEN, WE HAVE ANOTHER COUNTRY THAT HOUSES MILITANT GROUPS AND TERRORISTS IS CONCERNING. BE CAREFUL THEY MAY BUG OUR NAVY VESSELS, WE SHOULD BOT TRUST CHINA RUSSIA AND IRAN IN LIGHT OF THE PRESENT SITUATION AROUND THE WORLD. I THOUGHT NO SUCH VESSELS WERE PERMITTED INTO SRI LANKA WATERS OTHER THAN USUAL CARGO. CHINA, RUSSIA AND IRAN ARE ALL CLOSE BUDDIES AND CAN SET ANOTHER DEATH TRAP BEWARE.

    Literacy rate means percentage of people who can read and write. It doesn't measure intelligence or creativeness of people. So it doesn't mean people are smart or stupid as well.

    Shunmugam Saturday, 17 February 2024 09:56 PM

    You idiot, if you can’t read or write , possessing any natural intelligence or creativity is practically redundant. We Sri Lankans were at the top in literacy compared all of South Asia and Middle East, and now Iran is supplying technology to Sri Lanka .
