How Navi Pillay has been gunning for SL
I was pleased to read a vigorous denunciation by
our Ambassador in Geneva of the negative comments about Sri Lanka
contained in the report of the UN High Commissioner for Human
Rights, Navanethem Pillay. I had feared earlier that our Ambassador
was far too trusting about Ms Pillay, perhaps having been taken in
by her presumed penchant for sari parties, the all-girls-together
approach that is no substitute for proper diplomacy.
A journey on a paper boat to childhood and beyond
Time has a way of whittling away the
discomforting slices of the past. It erases completely things that
made one sad as well as things one regrets. It offers in sharper
focus things that made us smile and these appear as the markers that
help memory navigate the years that have rolled by.
Tourism - major contributor to national economy
Paradise of the East is a terminology used to
refer to Sri Lanka by many nations in the past. In conformity to
this citation Sri Lanka is a land blessed with beauty and the best
of everything. The country’s blend of fauna and flora, birds and
beasts, rivers and waterfalls, culture and heritage, beauty and the
beaches would enchant any tourist who seeks adventure, pleasure,
peace, delicious food and challenge in once destination.
