    In Europe children wave with flowers to the crowd in parades and are enjoing games and happy festivals. No kalaskovs involved.

    We need to put unelected master debating on a parachute without his trousers to last on normal folks back to revive their walking to the parliament to see how much work he is doing for the gang to bang on his back.

    What horribly ugly school uniforms Sri Lanka has for girls. What beautiful school uniforms Singapore has for girls.

    We have been marching up and down Galle Face for 75 years. Still need 4 days of additional rehersal marching to pull off a 76th year. Can't our gonas even March properly?

    Poor school kids, I was one of them a long time ago, soaking up enough and more Vitamin D. While you stand there waiting, see those shady characters from DIYAWANAWA strutting down the red carpet. Determine not to follow their path. I'm sure you'll have a tale to tell many years later.

    A "pada show" in a wretched country. Hope any of those soldiers have a loaded gun and an "independant" mind.

    Why do you call it independence celebrations of Sri Lanka if the people of Sri Lanka are barred from watching it. You are spending billions of rupees of public money only for the president, prime minister and parliamentary minister to participate. You are using public roads, the national try forces and police. Are these your personal properties. Enjoy your special meals on this day you gluts.

    How many fell off the sky ?

    What a waste, cant you skip for one year and have a low key ceremony.

    joshua Friday, 02 February 2024 09:10 PM

    We never watch these. Waste of taxpayers money. It is a nuisance when the Independence Day celebration comes. Good for jobless politicians
