    That`s true, our universities are in a sad state. One of my friends spent just one semester at the Uni of Sri Jayawardenepura before dropping out in disgust and coming here. It`s a shame because our campuses are among the most beautiful in the world.

    The white supremest ideology they are more intelligent than Blacks now Sri Lanka ideology they are more intelligent than most other.Way to go its about time world get to know Sri lankan may it be Tamils (includes VP, pretty boy and darling of Sinhalese Col: Karuna), Muslims, Burgers,and other minorities are more intelligent than most others reason that they are Sri Lankans? even with much less investment in tertiary education.I can visualize ever expanding patriotic chest superiority and hart felt sincerity in belief that they are more intelligent than to most others.Soon the day will come to say we are intelligent to all others period.Nothing wrong with that if you got it why not flaunt it.

    Kiora,

    Did you know that even today`s civil engineers don`t know exactly how our ancient kings created their tanks and irrigation systems?

    Did you know that Pakistan is asking us to train their army, and others have also made enquiries?

    Did you know that you still haven`t explained to me why you think Buddhists are `God-fearing`, as you said in another thread?

    [That`s true, our universities are in a sad state]

    Not at all. Our universities are best in the world. But the problem is except Engineering and Medicine all other study fields are not planned according to the country`s requirement. So the problem is in policy making...

    Just look how many students in Arts, Science (Physical), Economy etc are staying at home for years without jobs? Why not we produce graduates as per country`s requirement both in quality and the quantity?

    The only thing that happened the past 60 years is that governments have been trying very hard to get Sri Lanka`s ranking down to number 140.

    All this has got nothing to do with the `intelligent factor` but everything with a lousy educational system, while forbidding the english language didn`t help much either.
