Today, as I set foot on my 77th year of life, observed that many Sri Lankans have forgotten that this their motherland, that was once called the Paradise in the Indian Ocean.
I emigrated from Ceylon in 1967 to complete my education to graduation; gain professional experience and to become Chartered Engineer in Mechanical Engineering.
Thereafter in 1986 returned to my home country Sri Lanka with a passion for life. This was in spite of all the turmoil brought about by the selfish politicians of all ethnicities.
In this sinario, listening to what was said by a fellow countryman will help us all to make up our mind to stay rooted for the benefit of the country, Sri Lanka that we all love!
