    "Alone" is what happens to the unjust and the unscrupulous. Very sad, but true. He could have been the strong, people oriented leaders he was prior to his premiership, but he chose not to. He chose to lean on the unreliable twig of adulation.

    May be he is thinking about his future

    As a "good" Buddhist, Mahinda must have contemplated the impermanence of all things and the outcome of his own life in the face of the death of Parliament Speaker Mr. Perera! As a Buddhist, he knows we cannot escape from the deeds of our lives, they follow us like the shadow that accompanies us in the sunshine !!!

    We came alone and we must go alone. Lord and Mighty no exceptions. In between did he give purpose and meaning to life?

    Next in line.
