http://www.dailymirror.lk/DM_BLOG/Sections/frmNewsDetailView.aspx?ARTID=72114 The troika that attends at India is not representative of Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka does not have to heed the call to let such diabolical schemers access her sovereign lands. These alleged representatives are representing their own personal interests and not the interests of Sri Lanka and by doing so have sullied the sitting government to an extent that may be irreparable to its “leader” and the current administration. The current luxury bus controversy just adds to the long list of malfeasance between this troika and certain elements in India. Wasn’t Sri Lanka already utilizing these scanners to check for suicide bombers prior to “world opinion” supporting diaspora’s quest to procedurally discontinue it? http://www.colombopage.com/archive_091/Dec1262159418CH.html One family rule has never been the style in Sri Lanka and there are great lack of predispositions to electing family rule that is non-sovereign. There are certainly many families that have more than one or two generations under their belts that do not have to dally with such foreign intrigues at the sake of Sri Lanka. http://www.srilankaguardian.org/2009/12/nepotism-is-our-way-slbc.html Sri Lanka can wait up to 11 more months prior to purchasing rail equipment and does not need to forward a 10 year development plan by an administration that may not be in administration. http://www.dailynews.lk/2009/12/30/news26.asp With a certain malfeasance attached to these types of endeavours by the current President’s family members from brothers to sons there just is not any need to do more than agree to an interim government election that includes the diminishing of powers held by the President and a set time limit not to exceed 2 years to set in place and implement anti-corruption legistlation to guarantee that the NEXT presidential election (in 2 years) will be a free and fair process. Presidents are never Kings- they are not even the highest level of administration of ANY country. Former national administrators aka “Presidents” also cannot hold a crown. Sri Lanka also has a well known and held policy of not ever letting familial hereditary rule of Kings go unchecked.

Hi I am Dhoni. It has been an exciting series so far for us against Sri Lanka. To be able to win 4 matches against them in a row on their home soil is great. But we are looking to make a clean sweep. Before every match, I sit with my team and plan extensively about how to play the game. We always have Plan A and plan B. But what do you fans think? What is the most important thing for us to win the next one as well?
The majority of people are not Dravidian. Tamils, now a minority, were the early invaders who brought Buddhism and a knowledge of irrigation techniques. Coconuts, rubber, and tea are the country’s successful plantation crops. Industrial development is constituted mostly by factories which process agricultural products. Tamil was recently granted national language status.
