    Yea, yea. But without night clubs and discos you will not be able to get the tourists there, capital or not. In the meantime, add a few bars or most people will not want to visit your new capital.

    Smart Aleck Sunday, 03 October 2010 09:22 AM

    So! Has Sri Lanka now been divided to North and South? Is so, has Prabahakaran's elusive dream of Eelam been made a reality ?
