I discussed with them the influence of the social media has on social and national security, ethnic harmony, integrity of a family and so on because social media has influenced them badly.

News: Renewed interest for economic resurgence in North
Posted Date: 31/05/2018 (Thursday)
Sri Lanka’s former-war wrecked Northern region is witnessing signs of economic resurgence with greater political will being demonstrated by the Central Government and the shifting of focus by the local Tamil leadership towards development, as the Provincial Election also nears, observes a top regional researcher. In a candid interview with the Sunday Observer recently, Dr. Ahilan Kadirgamar, a political economist based in Jaffna, highlights that the lack of vision demonstrated by the Tamil political leadership for developing the Northern Province - nearly a decade since the war ended, has thus far resulted in ‘jobless growth’ and crippling indebtedness. However, he points out that 2018 could very well be the year of change as the people are now increasingly

News: Dollar strengthening combines with political uncertainty in Sri Lanka: Moody’s
Posted Date: 28/05/2018 (Monday)
Strengthening of the Dollar in Sri Lanka has combined with domestic political uncertainty, weighing on the rupee, Moody’s Investors Service said. Moody’s said country-specific factors like in Sri Lanka have played a role in tightening financing conditions. Tightening financing conditions reflect various factors, including the appreciation of the US dollar. Moody’s, however, said nearly all economies in the APAC region have seen their currencies depreciate against the US dollar over the course of this year.
News: Statement on Atrocities on Dalits : New Socialist Initiative
Posted Date: 28/05/2018 (Monday)
Hardly a day passes without headline news of some or another atrocity on Dalits. On 24 May, a Dalit man in the Ahmedabad district was beaten and his house attacked by a gang of socalled ‘upper’ caste men after he had attached Sinh to his name on his facebook post. On 21 May a dalit ragpicker was beaten to death in a Rajkot factory. Atrocities on Dalits are occurring in the midst of a public ideological environment against them. On 26 May news came of a private school in Delhi asking 8th class students to write a note on how reservations help undeserving and unqualified people for their summer vacation homework. According to National Crime Record Bureau reports for recent years, between 10 to 15 thousand cases of crimes are reported under the Prevention of Atrocities act every year; an average of 35 crimes
News: Why Thoothukudi Exploded
Posted Date: 28/05/2018 (Monday)
Many questions remain unanswered following the death of 13 people agitating against Sterlite Copper. What happened on 22 May in Thoothukudi (Tuticorin) in Tamil Nadu, when the police shot down 13 people who were part of thousands agitating against the Vedanta-owned Sterlite Copper plant, is important for a number of reasons. The most obvious is the egregious use of force by the police that failed to use standard crowd control methods and instead, as seen in videos on television, deployed sharpshooters to aim and shoot down people. Although an inquiry has been ordered, given the track record of such investigations by the state, it is not likely to assuage the anger of people or the distress of the families who lost one of their own in the firing.
