    This crisis isn`t something new to the country. Being sri lankans what are we prepared for in terms of disaster. Nothing.

    Hope the governing bodies will take such incidents in to account and deliver their so called promises.There`s more to come this is just the beginning. The person who`ll be suffering the most will be the poor, while the rich enjoy their luxuries.

    It`s such a pity that even the donations for these type of calamities are being absorbed by the politicians. When I read such articles it puts me off giving my hard earned money,for some uneducated moron to have a good life with my expense.
