Water arrives once every three days in the form of a free government tanker, but it’s not always enough to last. Buying a tanker of water privately costs 5,000 rupees ($34), more than most people can pay.

News: Protect Maithri for the survival of Unity Govt.
Posted Date: 20/10/2016 (Thursday)
When it comes to individual behaviour, many things have puzzled me to the point that it seems abnormal and peculiar. They say, every time a human being choose to take charge of his/her destiny, all hell will break loose. Even those who could use one’s brave acts for inspiration will even ridicule and laugh at you for standing up for them. We tend to think this unnatural human act is an isolated incident, but we’re wrong. No place is this more obvious than in national politics. The only conclusion is that few of the powers-that-be have conditioned the minds and souls of the masses to work against their own interests, and this self-impediment has been passed down from generation to generation, even resulting in genetic mutation.’ -ANONYMOUS

News: Political priorities and Constitution making
Posted Date: 17/10/2016 (Monday)
Constitutional expert and parliamentarian Dr. Jayampathy Wickremeratne has requested all the political parties to be flexible and support the government’s efforts to draft a new Constitution. He has also indicated that this is the most opportune moment to come up with a Constitution that will be fitting for the country. As he had pointed out we should neither delay the process too much nor should we try to do it in a hurry. What it means is that if we try to do it in a hurry we will end up with a faulty document which will serve no purpose, while on the other hand if we delay it too much it will never happen.

News: Australian detention atrocity exposed on Nauru
Posted Date: 16/10/2016 (Sunday)
Suicide attempts and self harm by refugee children on Nauru have prompted a forensic psychiatrist to expose the damage caused by Australia's offshore detention. Dr Nina Zimmerman was contracted by the United Nations to visit Nauru in April and gauge the level of mental disorder within the group of about 1000 refugees and asylum seekers marooned there.
