A new dawn is upon Sri Lanka; the visit of the Japanese Deputy prime Minister is a definite turning point.
The new dawn was heralded by Hon Duminda Silva’s return to active politics.
Let’s not forget the fact that although Duminda is not the most popular among the elitist society of Colombo, he still remains a larger than life figure in the hearts and minds of the people he tirelessly and magnanimously served. His heart is set at serving the “have not’s ” of our society, in contrast to others who rarely walk the talk , and are pre occupied with currying favour with the elitist strata of this country. It’s unfortunate but the reality is that the poor he serves have but little voice , and can only show their support and reverence by congregating in numbers
Chandani you are full of shit. You don’t seem to know your arse from your mouth. So stop displaying your ignorance and stay away from Onlanka you stupid cow.
