Yes that’s right! ABOLISHED. They are beyond resuscitation meaning they are DEAD, and no wonder the products of this system are unable to find remunerative employment except perhaps in one or two exceptional cases like Medicine, where the doctors can multiply their meager academic salaries by earning 10times that by moonlighting which is permitted.As the article this morning see below ...

In my trilogy of blog entries before this, I was exploring the problem of Education and resulting employment and was concerned that even those enrolled in courses that are desperately required for Sri Lanka DO NOT SATISFY THE COUNTRY’S or their personal requirements, resulting in a huge waste for both the Country’s or their resources.One of the comments was that ...

Following on from my previous blog posting on the inability of a course specifically designed to ensure graduates who complete this specially vocation related syllabus, to provide gainful employment, I would like to make the following observations and invite comment.UVA WELLASSA University on the outskirts of Badulla was constructed on the premise that those who graduate from their vocation related ...

The vanquished are in shock! That said, when one reflects on it once the ...

A truly mindboggling event has just occurred. I don’t think the sleepy Media has woken up to its significance yet! In most of the Local Government Bodies, a local Divisional Secretary has been tasked with the job that these elected members did. So who puts up the bulbs in the street corners once they have burnt out! They will manage ...

Minister Badiudeen insists that any constructions that we see outside the perimeter are LEGAL and that he has obtained state license for that building, corroborated by officials. The basic question is where is the National Park Boundary? Where does other state land end, what is the buffer zone, what is state land on which licenses can be given, and who ...

on April 27th and 28th on behalf of SRI LANKAIsn’t it ironic that we call upon over 100 of those MPs (over 160 voted for) who voted for the 18th Amendment, to give absolute dictatorial powers to Mahinda Rajapakse on September 8th 2010 to vote to overturn that by the 19thAmendment.The actual vote on that day was: 161 for 17 ...
