The Charming Lass from Kolonnawa is a sulky woman these days, they say. The main reason for her grim mood is that a bigwig from a political party committed to upholding democracy has yet to return her jeep borrowed during the run up to the last big poll.
The person who is expected to return the vehicle to her is such a clever dodger that her persistent attempts to reach him over the phone has failed.
Meanwhile, a very important lady with whom she campaigned for the ‘swan’ at the last big poll too has disappointed her. The lady had promised her a house and she has now conveniently forgotten all about it!
