One country one nation......big thank you to all the sons & daughters who contributed towards it

(Pilimathalawa town celebrating the victory )

War is over. LTTE leader is dead.

People rejoice.

But who knows when and where they would start again?


  1. Maybe what bothers you is that the war is over while terrorism and the Tamil aspirations for their own land is not over.
    What lies ahead in the next few months is important as I believe it will shape the future of our country for ever.
    As for the celebrations, I felt as a Sri Lankan a rush of relief that terrorists don’t hold the sovereignty of our country hostage anymore.
    I have met and worked with members of the LTTE who were in Colombo during the peace process ages ago and also visited Killinochchi and Batticloa. They were not very nice people for whatever reason. They were terrorists who suddenly realized that holding a gun to someone’s head vs. verbal negotiations were a completely different ball game. Most importantly it was surprising to realize that their sermons of idealism were complete bullshit, they too were carried away with the love for power and brutality.
    So when I heard that it’s over and complete control over Sri Lanka is back with the SLGov I did get a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye.
    Yes the human loss and suffering is unbearable and unbelievable, but the LTTE had and have no place in Sri Lanka. That much is important.
    So for once in our life lets forget our Sri Lankansisms of the past, lets be quietly proud and unite together to breathe a sigh of relief and look forward to a better future.
    Smile. It’s OK.
    Fuck the negativity for once, lets celebrate.

  2. Amen, DD.
