Long long ago when I used to blog under another name, someone left a comment on a post which I never forgot. It said: “You have beautiful shiny eyes that can light up one’s mood. A gorgeous dimpled smile. A laugh I can listen to endlessly and a very sexy voice. Your skin reminds me of Sri lankan kithul pani ...

Silencing of the Good for Evil to Prosper By liner: labels like ‘dictator’, ‘authoritarian’ seems only to stick to leaders who are irritants to the West. While the West have ‘administrations’, we have ‘regimes’. Yet, are ‘good’ guys really the good guys and ‘bad’ guys really the bad? ——————————————————————&

Colonization days maybe history, but whether the West is through with their conquering days is indeed questionable. It is also debatable whether the countries that bore the brunt of colonization ever regained their true independence. The West of course insist that the mess these countries still find themselves in the post-independent era is due to […]

My irises, mirrors reflecting silver light Mercury running thickly in my veins, illuminating Diamonds clattering inside my heart with each low thud Emitting shine that penetrates through the silver walls sending showers of silver glitter My skin made of white opal the facets giving off rainbows- Shining I’m radiant savoring silver dust on my tongue breathing in shiny grey all ...

It was Sundar Niranjan’s ’89 behemoths that inspired me to play rugby, and in that year a precocious group of Prep School under 13 players coached by a young old boy, famously (among ...

The black river flows despite all the sharp edges that tear her skin open bleeding from the flailing limbs healing paper-cuts and blossoming bruises The black river flows despite all the daggers that sink into her bosom reaching the core, piercing the muscle healing pinpricks and opening gashes The black river flows despite all the strains that break her bones ...

The finals of the Singer Schools Rugby League championship was decided appropriately between two teams who never said die, right throughout the season. Even the staunchest and truest Thomian supporters, muttering under their breath about refereeing decisions, could do nothing but shrug and accept the fact that they had been beaten by a well-oiled Green Machine.

Happiness is colleagues who care. The peeps in my department realised that my team was stressed out and ordered red velvet cupcakes to make our day better. The thoughtfulness is touching. At least I know they care. And they know us

In contrast to the usual tales of woe, increasing losses and strikes, an online publication had this optimistic story: Sri Lanka Post has done its homework. According to Shervyn Senadheera, Additional Secretary to the Ministry of Posts, Postal Services & Muslim Religious Affairs, a survey conducted between 2013 and 2014 with a sample size of 1,122 participants found that only ...

This article originally appeared in the Sunday Observer of Sunday 19th June  — I could clearly see the transformation of London; returning after seven years, the evidence was everywhere. High-rise high-end apartment buildings dotting a new Docklands skyline; construction cranes across Zone 1 peering over the old city and shaping a new one; a new […]

Open like the vast immensity of the sea baring hurricanes, abysses, monsters madness and chaos Weeping and twisting pouring depth out of eyes enclosing thunder and lightening into one fist Shooting destructive sprays of salt-water, consuming Open like the Universe A frail shape lying on the ground looking into the dark eternity eyes caught in the shimmering dots lighting the ...
