News: The quest for true freedom
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
Freedom, liberty and independence. Three words that seemingly have the same meaning, but differ in their interpretation. Sri Lanka gained independence from the British rulers on February 4, 1948, exactly 70 years ago. This was a turning point for freedom in the history of our nation. Independence is not just a facility that we gain from someone. It is also a state of mind. We must really feel free and independent as a nation to reap the full benefits of the struggle for independence that succeeded in 1948. Sri Lanka has gone through a tumultuous 70 years, mainly as a result of the shortsighted and ethnic centred policies of our politicians, most of

News: Sri Lanka’s Opportunity to Leverage High-end Tourism with Reclaimed Beaches
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
The recent proposal of the Megapolis Ministry to reclaim the sea abutting the Galle Face Green and to extend it Southwards to Dehiwela is a commendable idea. In addition, the Expressway coming into the City Center with links to other Expressways going North and South, it will be a realistic move. At the City end, the Expressway linking the Port, Port City, and the underground access to the city hotels and the Marine Drive going South is appropriate as there would be a North - South link and would ease traffic circulation. The reclamation of the sea takes time. In Rio De Janeiro in Brazil, reclamation of the

News: Japanese unaware of the ‘real’ Sri Lanka, visiting business leader says
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
Akio Mimura was 11 when Sri Lanka’s former President J.R. Jayewardena stood up for Japan at the San Francisco international peace conference in 1951. World War II had been over for six years and the allied powers had been deliberating how vanquished Japan would be punished. They wanted the country on its knees, paying reparations. Mr.Jayewardena, a minister in Mr.D.S. Senanayake’s government, was the lone voice among the 51 nations gathered that day backing the vanquished. Quoting Buddha, “hatred cease not by hatred but by love”the statesman called for a free and independent Japan and that it should not pay a heavy price that would harm its economy.

News: Sri Lanka Celebrating Independence In Chains Of Its Own Making
Posted Date: 04/02/2018 (Sunday)
While Sri Lanka "celebrates" 70 years of independence from British colonial rule this month, its sovereignty is being threatened as never before since gaining independence in 1948 – tempting one to remark that Sri Lanka is celebrating 'independence in chains'. The strategically placed Indian ocean island is an important lynchpin in China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) which western powers – especially the United States and Britain – are keen to sabotage as its success would end their hegemony in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.

News: Setting up the OMP: Delays, Dilution and Deal-Making
Posted Date: 03/02/2018 (Saturday)
The Office on Missing Persons (OMP) is one of the four mechanisms that the government promised in its ‘comprehensive approach to dealing with the past’. While the OMP is the only mechanism on which any formal progress has been made in the 28 months that have passed since the government announced its plan; even this has not yet been formally constituted and operationalised. Each step of the process thus far to establish the OMP has been marked by slow progress, a regrettable lack of transparency, poor engagement with victims and troubling political actions to undermine the independence of the institution.

News: 70 years with the ‘filthy rich’
Posted Date: 03/02/2018 (Saturday)
This Blue-Green coalition government will go on stage at Galle Face Green this Sunday to celebrate 70 years of Independence from British colonial rule. This same coalition, established after the 2015 January Presidential Election, celebrated 67 years of independence three years ago, with a simple ceremony, also at Galle Face Green. Three years from then, the ceremony has grown into a grand show as any, the Rajapaksas held to exhibit their power using the Independence Day celebrations. Though proud we are of the Independence gained (rather received), after 130 years and more of colonial rule, we don’t seem to have achieved anything greater than what the British left us.
