Poor old Dimuth Karunaratne was the latest casualty in the Sri Lankan camp yesterday, picking up a broken finger at practice. He follows the previous hamstring injury of Jeevan Mendis and the broken hand of Dhammika Prasad which happened early on in the piece. Prasad seemed a genuine injury. His hand was well and truly broken and a fast bowler ...

Women’s rights has been an ongoing debate since the late 1800’s. 8th March has been designated as Women’s Day to remind women every year that they have the right to... Read more » The post Women’s Day Special appeared first on .

We have 2 guests One the golden type And one.. a mouse. She’s a darling little mouse With her Minnie mouse ways Scampering, totterring Catching us by our pinkies Makes me wish at times I had a mouse of my own. A mouse in a house.

Soldiers are not heroes. They are not villains either. They are humans. Even those who act ‘inhumanely’ are people driven to act and have seen or done things that they can’t forget; things that may haunt them for the rest of their lives. There is a conflict in their requirement to be proud as soldiers while they suffer the consequences ...

A Ratings Agency has put specific numbers behind the entity-based and mobiles-sector specific taxes in 2015 interim budget. Should the proposals go ahead, 2015 FFO-adjusted net leverage for Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT, BB-/Stable) and Dialog Axiata (Dialog, AAA(lka)/Stable) is likely to deteriorate to 1.8x and 2.5x, respectively (2014: 1.2x and 1.3x), while the operating EBITDAR margin may narrow by 400bp ...

Day Outing in Kandy by Abimansala 3 I just thought of writing on my recent day outing to Kandy and it was apparently the first   outing organized by Abimansala 3. It is little over 10 months since Abimansala 3 came into effect and glad it is now functioning almost similar to other Abimansalas that are in Anuradhapura and mathara. Since the Kandy is not that far from ...

So everyone’s happy now. Sri Lanka have won two games handsomely and all is well in the Paradise Isle. Sri Lankans are so fickle and changeable it’s a good thing our weather doesn’t reflect the people. Sri Lankan cricket fans, I think, have – as a majority – lacked perspective. If their team wins great, but if they don’t, they’re ...

Frida Kahlo And Private Colors | Indi Wijesekara The South American painter Frida Kahlo painted her own reality and made the observer feel what she felt. Her sense of style and colour was mostly influenced by her native Mexican culture. This collection captures this vivid identity and sense of colour in sharing a personal reality with the outer world. Ethnic identities and their vibrant individuality has been brought ...

He sat up and lit a cigarette. His left eye reflected the light in a shade of infernal red. For a moment he looked like the devil in disguise with sleek long hair and nerdy specs. The smell of tobacco clung to the thick air of the room. The smell of enticement (for her). He sat on his bed naked ...

I told him I will write of him, the evening and the rest of it, and he tells me I should send him the link. I might, out of sheer bitchiness. I could be that, when someone deserves it, or plays the ultimate jerk trying to outdo himself in achieving the height of self-centric behaviour. I have known this specimen ...

I haven’t written anything here in a while. Not for lack of wanting; there have been many, many times where I picked up this particular digital pen, despite the lateness of the hour and the to-do-lists on the walls. But there is always a leap between want and do. These woods are lovely, but I have had many promises to keep. And sometimes many miles ...

Almost 10 yrs, and it still tends to feel like my 21st birthday….when I watched people keep in their birthday wishes for me, while I watched the man of my life get cremated. He was my king. My saviour. The only one who understood me and took my side. If the walls in my room could speak, they’d know the ...

Considering the experiences that I have had to go through in life, there is this fear that sets in when I want to be free and want to be me. The pain I have had to experience and the struggles I have had to go through to get over all sorts of pain and hurt makes me think not twice ...

Down The Rabbit Hole | Amanda Weeraratne This project was dedicated to the exploration of the ideology of escape for our society and the role of loneliness in the lives of the world’s upper class. With power and wealth comes loneliness due to the lack of privacy; this experience is a way of observing the chance to use escapism to cope or totally leave their reality. The ...

The situations in the US and our countries are very different: we have more competition at the access-network level, we have more people who are not connected and our retail pricing schemes are more rational. But it’s illuminating that the FCC is not as excited about zero rating as some other people: Under the FCC’s newly approved net neutrality rules, ...

Internet.org, Facebook’s effort to give people free Internet (or at least 38 websites and services that do not include Google) was launched earlier this month. This has resulted in a quantum leap in discussions of various aspects of net neutrality, including ones that connect the debate in the rich countries to our reality that is dominated by people who has ...
