The state’s security forces exist to defend the country not to constantly be involved in pompous pageantry that serve no purpose. More than any government, this government has turned our … Continue reading →

Historically, Sri Lankans have strong opinions on many issues, some are well thought through while others aren't.Unfortunately our governments and our society have suppressed their views with force and have rejected the people holding the views, rather than challenging the ideas rationally. We need to open up our society. We need to respect each other's views and challenge each other ...

Imagine an Apple product specifically made for the Sri Lankan market. That’s exactly what this video tries to help you with. it’s also one of the most creative and funniest … Continue reading →

There are big headed girls across all nationalities but I have constantly found the proportion of big headed ones to be much higher among our Sri Lankan girls. I know many nice, down to earth Sri Lankan girls who I'm privileged to call friends but I know way too many stuck ups. Until last night I thought it was just ...

Obviously, most people (almost everyone, I think) protesting against the "UN resolution" have no idea about the contents of the resolution. So I decided to educate myself on what's likely to be in this much hyped resolution. So basically, the US is saying, up until now they(the member states) had two options when dealing with Sri Lanka.

The biggest problem facing the print media is making a profit. Less people are buying newspapers and more and more people are reading news online. But (at least for The Guardian) a major source of it's funding is from selling newspapers and they are now making a loss. They are looking for a new model of business but no one ...

Zimbabwe is playing much better cricket than they did 8 years ago. They beat Bangladesh comprehensively in the last test match, the first in many years. They've now beaten them in an ODI series too. And last year they beat Sri lanka and India in the ODI games. So, people like Heath Streak who stayed calm and worked for the ...

Ranil has no ground to stand. But, Karu and Sajith don't appeal much either (like anyone can be better that Ranil). Karu for his part crossed over to the government for ministerial perks and is now back in the UNP. What kind of policies will UNP have if he is the leader? I could only imagine the same as that ...

The only time I liked Facebook was when it came out first, in 2006 or 2007. Newsweek had an article about it then and praised Facebook for enabling us keep our lives private on the web. In Sri Lanka, Hi5 was the coolest website then. Almost all my classmates had a hi5 profile and they all seemed to meet new ...

There seems to be a lot of discussion in the Sri Lankan blogosphere about our identity. We all identify ourselves with at least one particular group of people. For me, being human is my first identity and I can feel for many people who have common human problems because I face similar problems. Then, I am a MAN and that's ...

I have started a research placement in London. The project title is 'Bioimpedance spectroscopy analysis'. When I first heard about it I had to google the title to understand it. Apparently it is something to do with passing electricity through the human body and measuring the impedance in the particular region of the body.

It’s no secret that Sri Lankans eat a lot of hot food, I also find Jamaican or west African food very hot. But Europeans or Americans don’t seem to eat … Continue reading →
