Sri Lanka – Towards becoming a Singapore

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on September 2, 2010

A very small incident ignited the thoughts of writing this article. One day i was at Galle Face Green and a foreign couple , with a child were walking there looking for something. They were looking and looking. They were looking for a garbage bin and once they found the bin , they put the garbage there and went.

Trash Warning

Trash Warning In Sinhalese - "We are hiding here - If you dump trash , we will hit you "

How many Sri Lankans will do that ? How many indians will do that. We still put litter whereever we want (we dump our household trash on the road , spit whereever we want , smoke in public and the list would go on)

One of the key reasons (in my opinion) why the Europe and far eastern countries have developed is the discipline within the people. They will not litter on the road and would not break a queue when waiting for a bus or a taxi. This is an intagible component of the development which the government of Sri Lanka has not paid attention.

The ports , bridges and highways would make the physical development possible – yet we have to change the mindsets of people – otherwise all the efforts would not be very successful.

Is there a place where the younger generation learn about good values ? Does the schools teach them ?  These values should be instilled at the young age.

Laws are there to maintain the social order. They will hardly instill self discipline within the people. Think about the recent law to prohibit errant road crossings. We can’t deploy police to minitor how the people cross roads – it’s not practical and only self discipline will help.

PS : Please note that this article does not reflect the policies of my employer nor the organizations i am representing.

උත්සන්න වන විශ්ව විද්‍යාල නවක වදය පිලිබඳව

බාහිර සමාජය තුලදී ලංකා නීතියට පටහැණිව කටයුතු කරන්නන්ට දැඩි දඩුවම් ලැබේ. පොලීසිය ඔවුන් අත්ඩංගුවට ගන්නා අතර ඔවුන්ට විරුද්ධව නීති කටයුතු ආරම් කරනු ලැබේ. 1998 අංක 20 දරන පනත අනුව නවක වදය යනු දැඩි දඬුවම් ලැබිය හැකි වරදකි. එනම් වසර 5 සිට 10 දක්වා සිර දඬුවමක් හා විශ්ව විද්‍යාලයෙන් නෙරපීමක් එයට අදාළ වේ. කෙසේ වුවද මෙම පනතේ ප්‍රතිපාදන සරසවි තුල නිසි ලෙස ක්‍රියාත්මක නොවන අතර දැන් නවක වදය සංවිධිත වූ ප්‍රසිද්ධියේ කෙරෙන අපරාධයක් බවට පත්වී ඇත.

මෙවන් තත්වයක් ඇතිවීම ලංකාවේ නීතියේ බලය හෑල්ලු කිරීමක් වන අතර අතලොස්සකට සුලු පිරිසක් පීඩනයට ලක් කිරීමට ඉඩ සැලැස්වීමකි.

රටේ පලමු පුරවැසියා , රටේ විධායක ජනාධිපතිවරයා , නීතීඥයකු හා දරු තිදෙනකු ගේ පියා වශයෙන් මේ තත්වල පිලිබඳ සංවේදී වෙමින් ලංකාවෙන් නවක වදය තුරන් කිරීමට පියවර ගන්නා මෙන් ඔබතුමා ගෙන් ගෞරවයයෙන් ඉල්ලා සිටිමි. සරසවි වල පරිපාලනයට සහ පොලිසියට මේ පිලිබඳ නීති ක්‍රියාත්මක කිරීමට උපදෙස් දෙන මෙන් ඔබතුමා ගෙන් ඉල්ලා සිටිමි.

Heros Never Die !

Heros Never Die !

Even though the war against terror is over , this nation will never forget the heros who faught valiantly. Major Tuan Muthalif , a great hero who led many successful missions against the ruthless LTTE – you should have been here to celebrate victory with your fellow brethren.

He was shot in day light at Narahenpita Colombo by a covert LTTE unit at Colombo as they were unable to defeat this man at the battle front on 31st May 2005. This brave man would be remembered as a top Military Intelligence officer of Sri Lankan Defence Forces.

Civilian Crisis at Wanni : Worried ? Read this !

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on February 7, 2009

Many parties including USA, India and others are worried over the plight of civilians. Actualy civilan crisis was triggered by the LTTE. THey have created a barricade forbidding the civilians exit the war zones to safer places. Holding the civilians at gun point they force them to stay as a shield for their carders. In simple words they have created a human shield. Behind this shield they launch attacks to Sri Lankan forces and counter attacks harm civilians.

It’s LTTE who have committed the alleged genocide of Tamils by forcing them to enter an unnecessary war. They launch human wave attacks where they use child soldiers. Recently they sent a child soldier to hamper the civilian rescue by Sri Lankan army.

If you want further proof you could view this video on youtube. It’s captioned in English and you can understand what these IDP is telling to army. Pro LTTE followers might say that this is propaganda, but i hope you have common sense to make a right judgement.

Alas ! Why are these tamil actors in hunger ?

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on November 17, 2008

Thambi , why are you worrying about the tamils of Sri Lanka ? We Sri Lankans will sort our problems by ourselves. Saw that you have had a fast yesterday for the tamils of Sri Lanka.

Thambi , if you are really concerned about Sri Lankan tamils suffering at Killinochchi and Mulathiv why dont you just tell Prabakaran , the terror chief to let the tamil civilians come to government held areas ?

By the way are all rights of tamils and non tamil are 100% protected in India ? I just wanted to ask so because you are intervening in to the problems of Sri Lanka , which is a soverign nation.

Came to know that you recently tried to poke your finger in to a malasian issue and was ridiculed. What a shame thambi !

Let’s see your concern about the welfare of citizens of mother india.

Why have you sidelined the harijans from the aid programs when they were affected from 2008 september floods ?

Why are you discriminating dalits , labeling them as low casts ?

Why are Dalit women being gang raped ? Is it a past time for you all ?

Dont try to fool the central government by showing bogus concern about things you are clueless !

Your hunger strikes are in vain ! Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhalese , tamils , muslims and burgers. Sri Lanka belongs to Sri lankans.

The terrorism menance affecting sri lanka was a brainchild of india itself. We will soon iradicate terror from our motherland. Dont try to make a false scene and intervene in to our issues,

Sri lanka is not a feeble state anymore. Sri lanka is a part of the global village. States like China , Russia are investing within our nation. If you try to poke your finger to Sri Lanka states like Russia and China will not remain silent. They will take action to protect their assets.

We know that India want to police the South Asia region. So they are trying to manipulate Sri Lanka. Best alternative for this poiwer greed is to give a part of Hambanthota harbor to a Russian naval base.

Thambi , do you know that India want to apply for permanant membership of UN security council ? Arent India ashamed ? Karunanidi , the terror supporter is a minister of a nation who wants to be a member of security council. How funny !!! If india comes to UN security council whole world will be screwed for sure.

Thambi , my advise for you is to practice what you know. Act at films , according to the scripts of your directors. Please dont act according to the scripts of malicious ministers who are LTTE puppets.

Development in LTTE areas

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on October 28, 2008

This video shows some villages near Killinochchi captured by Sri Lankan army. These villages were under the LTTE control for over 20 years. LTTE and other front organizations like TRO collected mass amount of funds for the development of these villages. However no visible development is seen. All houses are thached and only concrete structures you will see in Wanni are the LTTE cemetries and offices. This is the so called development by the LTTE. They could have developed these villages through the so called administrative structures established by them during the CFA period.

This video proves the shameless use of funds for development of wanni for military purposes. Seems that these people have survived from the aid sent by the government. It’s the govenment funded irrigation that has provided them water. Under the LTTE they are offered with one good livelyhood. Joining the stupid , brainwashed moron band of LTTE and die and be a mahavir who is named as a terrorist by the rest of the world.

LTTE atrocities includes a large amount of crimes other than deception and corruption. They have conducted a number of attacks on the civilian settlements and civilian busses killing many innocent defenceless people. LTTE is sending brainwashed sucide carders to silence political dissent and brutal killers of LTTE has killed a number of diplomats and state heads including Hon. Rajiv Gandhi – the past president of Republic of India.

International community should help Sri Lanka to defeat the babaric terror of LTTE. There crimes are a disgrace to all independance movements of the world. Also shame on the so called NGOs who assisted LTTE in the name of developing Wanni – they have not done any development at all.

Sri Lankan Forces – you are our Gods !

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on October 28, 2008

I browse YouTube for Sri Lankan videos and found this wonderful video. This is the new video for “Api Wenuwen Api”. In this video Nelu , Weraliyadda , Nalin and Iraj Sings about Sri Lankan forces. They call them a strong wall and names them as the gods of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan forces have made supreme sacrifices in defending the soveriginity from ruthless LTTE terror organization which is demanding a seperate state within Sri Lanka. Despite the negotiation and peace efforts of Sri Lankan government LTTE has killed a large amount of Sri Lankan civilians , clergy and Political figures. Today they use civilians as a shield in protecting their defences and denies humanitarian aid to them. They are discredited for their baberic sucide missions and child soldier deployment in combat.

In this backdrop Sri Lankan forces have made many victories to protect Sri Lanka and it’s innocent civilians. This video is a tribute to the brave Navy , Army and Airforce of Sri Lanka.In their humanitarian missions they have liberated the eastern province from terror clutches and presently engaged in liberating the nothern province from LTTE terrorists.

මහජනතාවගේ සාක් සමුලුව 2008

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on July 10, 2008

සාක් කලාපීය සහයෝගීතාවය පිලිබද සමුලුවක් වුනත් අපි හැමදාම අහන්නේ එහිදී රටවල් වල නායකයෝ කියන කරන දේ විතරයි. ඒ ඒ රටවල මහජනයා කරන කියන දේවල් වත් , ඔවුන් ගේ අදහස් වත්  මොනම සමුලුවකවත් ඇහෙන්නේ නැහැ. රටක ඉතිහාසයත් එහෙමයි .. ඉතිහාසයේ තියෙන්නෙත් රජවරු සිටුවරු ගැන විතරයි…  මෙන්න හැමදාම වෙන ඩ්දේට වෙනස් දෙයක්… සාක් කලාපයේ “ජනතාවගේ සමුලුවක්”…

මම මේ කියන්න යන්නේ සාක් සමුලුවට සමගාමීව ලංකාවේ පැවත්වෙන “ජනතාවගේ සමුලුවක්” ගැනයි.

Peoples SAARC is an annual regional convergence of peoples organizations and movements in parallel to the annual South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit. Sri Lanka is hosting the 2008 SAARC summit in Colombo between 27 July and 03 August. For security and logistical reasons Peoples SAARC 2008 will take place on 18, 19 and 20 July in Colombo. We look forward to hosting at least 500 delegates from the region and 500 from Sri Lanka as well as mobilizing over 5000 on 20 July for a mass demonstration of South Asian peoples unity and for a peoples agenda in South Asia.

මේ සමුලුව පැවැත්වෙන්නේ සාක් සමුලුවට සමගාමීවයි. සාක් කලාපයේ රටවල් නියෝජනය කරන ජනතා නියෝජිතයෝ 500 ක් විතර මේ සමුලුවට සහබාගී වෙයි කියලා අනුමාන කරනවා. මෙය ජුලි 18 , 19 හා 20 දින වල කොලබ දී පැවත්වෙනවා. සමුලුවට අමතරව කලාපීය ජනතාවගේ සහයෝගීතාවය හා ජනතාවගේ  වැඩසටහනක අවෂ්‍යතාවය පෙන්නුම් කරන demonstration එකක් පැවැත්වෙනවා..

Women, labour, peasants, urban and rural poor, cultural activists and organic intellectuals, students, youth and marginalised and excluded social groups and communities. All activists groups, social movements, progressive intelligentsia, cultural activists, writers, journalists and all those who subscribe to the ideas of the People’s SAARC must be galvanized in the name of the People’s SAARC and helped to converge in Colombo during the third week of July 2008. We pledge to abide by three principles of the platform process namely: (i) by being inclusive; (ii) by subscribing to the common minimum agenda; and (iii) by non-domination by individuals or organizations.

නාගරිකව හා ගම්බදව ජීවත් වෙන කාන්තාවන් , කම්කරුවෝ , ගොවියෝ , දිලිදු අය වගේම එක එක සංවිදාන වලට අයත් බුද්දිමතුන් , සිසුන් ආදී විවිද අය මේකට සහබාගී වෙනවා..

මෙය සංවිදානය කිරීමට ස්වේච්චාවෙන් ඉදිරිපත් වෙන්න කියලා ඔබගෙන් මම ඉල්ලා සිටිනවා.. ඔබට මෙයට සහය දක්වන්න බැරි වුනත් නොවරදවාම මේ ජනතාවගේ සමුලුවට සහබාගී වෙන්න කියලා ඉල්ලා සිටිනවා…මේ සමුලුවට ඔබට විවිද විදියට උදවු කරන්න පුලුවන් ..

මේ බ්ලොගය මගේ මිතුරකු කරන එකක්. ඔහු ලියන්නේ ආරක්ෂාව පිලිබදවයි. මේ පිටුවල තියන තොරතුරු ඔහු විවිද වෙබ් ඩවි වලින් ගන්න ඒවා….මා මෙහි කැමතිම කොටස ඔහුගේ ටැග් ලයිනයයි. (Some day this war is going to end)

යමි දිනයක මේ යුදය අවසන් වනු ඇත.

අපි ඔක්කොම ඇගිලි ගනින්නේ ඒ දවස එනකනුයි…ගිහින් ඔබත් බලන්න.
