    It is the responsibility of the parents.They should be friendly with grown up kids and listen to them and make them to understand and explain them reality behind the youth love affairs. Harsh words and arguments will lead to such fates.RIP to both.

    It is not the duty free car permits we have talk about It is the social downfall of Sri Lanka we need to look into. The present budget does not address this issue, It only makes it worse.

    Quite difficult to address the generational gap issues. Lovers are rejected by parents and they commit suicide.. It is not the budget that can put it right but the religious leaders and elders in the community - accept modern trends that come with enhanced freedom to 18-30 year groups..
