Yakadaya as a Super Star

    Dear editor,

    When Criminals are in Parliament what`s wrong with an ex-convict, that too someone who has served his term meeting the President? Who knows whether he has repented. King Asoka repented and became a froemost Dharmishta king.

    Yakadaya should have his chance too, if he is remorseful and repenting.

    One man`s hero is another mans `terrorist`. I will not be surprised if MR is considered a `terrorist` by a section of the people in Sri Lanka and by people around the world who are watching events in Sri Lanka dispassionately. After all he is actively encouraging his security forces in the annihilation of the Tamil civilians of Sri Lanka by aerial bombardment, abduction, made to disappear, mass graves etc. People won`t be surprise that he met Yakadaya!! Birds of a feather flock together, they might say!!

    Fully agree. This state of affairs has been brought in by the people of this country. Although Sri Lanka has over 90% literacy rate and ranks highest in south Asia, people in this country acts like fools. They would bow down and lick the boots of those whom they voted to power. They make crooked politicians their masters and not their servants. As long as this state of affairs exists Sri Lankans will continue to get what they deserve.

    [Although Sri Lanka has over 90% literacy rate...]

    We still harp on this fact and think that we are GREAT! What we have forgotten is that in todays day and age computer literacy is equally important. In Sri Lanka I do not think we have a even 20% computer literate population.

    [Why should we transform ex-convicts into figures larger than life? In so doing, we send a wrong message to the society. ]

    No question, we need to agree.

    [Besides criminals and ex-convicts, even mythical beings have become larger than life. The much dreaded hooniyam yaka of yore is now on its way to the pantheon of popular gods. It has now been elevated to the level of devathava and it will become a god in time to come. (Some Buddhist temples have shrines dedicated to it, cheek by jowl with those of gods.) ]

    Dear Mr. EDITOR:

    Sri Lanka practices Theravada Buddhism and not the Mahayana Buddhism.

    When I went to `UDA MALUWA` of Anuradhapura, I saw an special task is assgined to one BO - TREE. That was called the `WISH TREE` and people can go and hang money to that. That is Mahayana Buddhism in which prey for BodhiSathwa - GODS asking favourations.

    I was disappointed to see that.

    I have even heard a monk in that place drink alcohol.

    This shows the bankruptcy of a country for role models.

    Yakadaya shot dead with a sawn off gun the post master at madankadawela. the victim was an innocent Tamil man by the name Nadarajah whose means of living was the paltry pay.

    the sri lankan head of state saw it fit to entertain an ex convict b`os the two are equals, killing innocent tamils.

    yea birds of a feather flock together.

    That much for responsible politician, they will do anything to keep their seats and build empires out of the state coffers.

    Yakadaya was brought to Matale police station when he was arrested.it was somewhere in 1954 or so and at that time looked around 35 or so years old.So he shud be around 90 years now!!
