Welcome to return Sri lanka but sametime Mr prime minister should resign his work and better take good rest in home.
Hon DM Jayaratne has done yeoman service to the Nation as a Senior politician and Prime Minsiter. He presided over a Cabinet of more than 60 Ministers and was able to achieve decisions and directions by consensus.
It appears nature’s calling him to go slow as he approaches the twilight of his life.
I wish Hon Jayaratna well and hope he lives long to provide saner consel to the destiny of our nation.
Thank You Sir, for you commitment to the Sinhala Buddhist Citizenry, to our Nation, the miracle of Asia and years that you sacrificed (especially as the Minister for Buddha Sasana) in promoting Buddhism and Mahinda Chinthana as the core of our existence.
I have read in a medical journal that that a virus called Bells Palsy caused paralysis of one side of the face due to this infection following a burst ear drum operation of a person. Since Hon PM had been treated in USA for a serious ear infection to save his hearing, it is possible he was later infected by the Bells Palsy virus for which he must have been treated and now recovered fully.
I wish Hon PM good health and long life to serve Motherlanka! I like him very much. I have had the priviledge to meet him in 1995 to dicuss extensive ginger cultivation for local market and export. He is a very good and honest man.
Thank you for the information Nicholas, you do have the perseverence to enlighten the masses.
Couldn’t that ear operation have been undertaken in Colombo by our own Sinhala Buddhist ENT surgeons?
As taxpayer, did I have to foot the bill for Hon Mr Jayaratne’s medical bills in Baltimore?
I came across 3 kids in a Children’s Home in Panadura with severe hairlip. They are stuck there for want of financial assistance for the surgery. Total cost is approximately SLRs75,000 and we can have 3 bright Sri Lankan citozens who will serve the nation perhaps for next 60 years.
I agree with you Chandini that you and I and the common man cannot afford treatment in USA or any other Western country. We have to seek treatment locally. Anyway I prefer that because we have our own specialists who could infact be better. Besides our kith and kin are near us to visit us daily and bring us home cooked meals, which is preferable.
We do not know whether Hon PM was treated in USA at the expense of the treasury. Perhaps he may have met the bill himself. I suppose he is rich enough. Anyway, I think he should have entered a private hospital in SL for treatment as a true patriot and to instil confidence in our own specialists. We have surely brilliant medical specialists in SL.
I wish the Hon PM speedy recovery! He is a good man.
Dear ND, You have quite successfully answered his second question but are silent on the first.
His sinister first question on the religion and the ethnicity of the surgeon attending on you reveals the vulgarity of this blogger CP.You don’t ask those questions when selecting a doctor of medicine when you are ill.As you have suggested in an earlier blog this CP is an agent of a sinister cause.
Health and medicine are close to my own existence. I value my existence and when it time to submit my existence to another human, I certainly do have a choice as to who it should be.
Likewise, Hon Jayaratne is my hero and I wouldn’t imagine handing over his existence to any other than a true son/daughter of the soil.
It escaped my notice about CP’s mischievous suggestion for PM to be treated by Sinhala Buddhist ET specialists. How ridiculous! A medical specialist’s religion, race or class has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on his/her skill. This applies to any profession. All religions teach us to do our best in our professions to serve all living beings well and to protect our environment. This way we attain peace and joy within ourselves as well as bring happiness to the world, free of greed and egoism.
