Oh! What is he going to do now.
What is the wheeler-dealer Malik Samarwickrema doing in Davos?
Sure he is working out underhand deals which will enrich his multi-billion rupee empire.
Ranil as usual is in good company and what did he talk about for there is a lot happening in Europe and the Swiss are in the least concerned. Most likely he ought to tap the swiss bankers and find something about Mahindas account or launder that crook Arjun Mahendra who is Rajaratnam sidekick once upon a time. How is Ravinath iam sure he is looking smart and not necessarily talking smart. He must be getting ready to look good at the next UNHRC thing for they may have fresh petitions about violations from gestapo abuses. The swiss dont like the gestapo
