    The heartland of Hinduism in Sri Lanka is Jaffna and certainly it is not Kochchikade or Hatton. While it is great to show Thai Pongal in those areas I would have wished celebrations in Jaffna were also included in the pictures.

    There is no heart land or hinter land issue, what's the fuss. There are large numbers of Hindus in Trinco, Batticaloa and other parts of the country too.
