    Calistus Jayatilleke Sunday, 18 August 2013 04:11 AM

    TJ Saturday, 17 August 2013 03:10 PM

    Your perfectly right. Compared to Bombay, Colombo is a very clean city

    Porky Pig Saturday, 17 August 2013 03:15 PM

    Clean, a comparative term. Depends on where you come from.

    As It Is Monday, 19 August 2013 12:00 AM

    Thanks Ranbir. Having visited India more than 30 times, this country is a PARADISE. But this statement being used to cover the nudity of the government is what irritates our readers. WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY BUT TOTALLY DISLIKE THE RULERS, is the message emanating from all comments. via DM Android App

    Ruzaick Sunday, 18 August 2013 04:46 AM

    Our mother Lanka is clean but the politicos are unclean.

    Nodrog Sunday, 18 August 2013 04:51 AM

    The rulers are garbage but overall, our country is clean so why all the negative comments?

    Sandun Sunday, 18 August 2013 04:53 AM

    Both criticizing and appreciating are equally important to be a noble and unprejudiced citizen. But hypocrites can never admire any commendable initiatives taken by anyone.

    Suq Madique Sunday, 18 August 2013 04:55 AM

    Are we are the only country with blood on the streets?? Open your eyes and your mind man!!

    Thanuja Sunday, 18 August 2013 05:16 AM

    Van der Merwe Sunday, 18 August 2013 06:07 AM

    Very mush so. Hearts of some people are dirty and stinking thanks to rotten and ugly politicos.

    Nishadhi Sunday, 18 August 2013 06:45 AM

    'less dirty' would be more appropriate Ranbir, less dirty and clean give two different meanings.

    Thank You Ranbir for your kind words. We as Sri Lankan know the situation.

    Perumal Sunday, 18 August 2013 07:15 AM

    Tell Ranbir to choose Madampitiya and Orugodawatta as sites for shooting.

    ANTON Sunday, 18 August 2013 07:27 AM

    Nice to hear. that it is such a clean country It was only a few days ago that Botham said that we are the friendliest people.
    But it will be nice if we accept praise and criticism the same way, with grace.That's the way to move forward.
