Thilanga to follow course on government at Harvard

    Thilanga is an intelligent guy. It is unfortunate that he ended up as a crook.

    Naleen, in SL brilliance and intelligence are used in many instances for crooked activity. Remember the SL bus conductor who tampered with the German engineered bus ticket vending machine which was supposed to be tamper proof. Our guy simply used a `match stick` to tamper with the mechanism for his benefit! Our people are quite ingenious but use that knowledge for the wrong purposes.

    Has he won a `lottery visa`? If he takes the gamble to remain in the US where pickings are huge compared to Sri Lanka, it will be Sri Lanka`s gain and Uncle Sam`s loss.

    Abdulsalaam, Thilanga`s tactics will be `chickenfeed` for the guys in Chicago!

    Kiwi,

    What you said is very true. I always wonder where our country would be right now, if our politicians used their criminal way of thinking to do good for the country. (example - CBK) Just imagine, Sri Lanka could have been a major player in the south asian region.

    Thilanga may change his CV. Hereafter he will be called `Haward Educated` by just attending a part time program for couple of days. Stupid people in Sri lanka will say he is a highly educated man.

    When you have money how easy the life is.

    As far as I know his highest qualification is A/L.

    Dumindak,

    Going by the standards of the ata-pass JVP leaders G.C.E. (A/L) is a very high standard!

    Naleen

    I think more than 90% of JVP candidates are university graduates.

    Dumindak,

    Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    Among the JVP top brass, only Nihal Galappaththy and Sunil Handunneththi have completed degrees. Somawansa, Weeramonkey, Tilvin, Lalkantha, Wijitha Herath and Anura D have never been to universities (even when it rains) and Nandana G and Bimal R are first year dropouts.

    Of course, when they promote themselves they always say very impressive things, so people like you will believe them.

    My dear friends,

    I would be careful in accepting this new development in Thilanga`s life.

    Howard and Harvard are two different universities in USA.

    He may have mentioned Howard and the journalist knowing only the Harvard University may have filled in the rest.

    Fairplay
