Oh.. I wonder the very meaning of "Life"!

A full moon day, A long weekend, and a tiering day
Home with no one, and life without respite
love without a love and life shrouded by duties. 
Oh.. I wonder the very meaning of "Life"!

Shinning Sun, glittering moon, but, do I see?
Glamorous heaven laughs at me, with the power of LED
Oh miles away, my heart is at sleep 
I wonder the very meaning of  "Life", in the cold of this night.

Floods, Landslides, Tragedy and Mocking Faith – One Short Film

              We are in the very midst of most stupendous natural calamities. Floods, Landslides, a small scale storm, a fear of hurricane and for some fear of earth quake. Some couldn’t find a safe shelter to spend a night. Shops are closed, offices are getting emptied, and streets flooded with vehicles as if all want to go home before the apocalypse.
              In this short film, I see the beacon of hope and notion of one country. We as Sri Lankans getting together and lending hand to solace the suffering. From every corner of the society, pledges are coming for donations, groups get together and collections are going strong, which is indeed a necessity of the hour. True Sri Lankan spirit is rising to the occasion, all have forgotten their ethnicity, religion and social inequalities.
              However, there is another side of the coin as well. I was listening to a radio channel on my way home. They have started a donation campaign with the support of two multinational companies. It was a pledge for public support, but under the surface current I sensed the arms of capitalism. A disaster has turned out to be a marketing campaign. In another media, I witnessed prominent student union of a socialist party handing over donations dressed up with their landmark T-shirts and Hats.

               A mocking faith, Adam Smith and Karl Marx both cherish from lamenting hearts of suffering!

They all fought for their Motherland!

Everyday I pass by the solemn war memorial at parliament ground, which was erected for those fallen men during 30 year old civil war of this nation. I have walked down the alleys of that war memorial to pay the tribute to those men who fell in the battle fighting gallantly. I hardly could read their names, every time my eyes get blurred.  21000+ soldiers fought that bloody, horrendous battle for their motherland for nearly 30 years. In the times of uncertainty, those fallen men shouldered a better future for me, a secured future for me and for all of us. Their agony and the pain brought peace for us. Estimated 80,000 lives have gone with the wind in both sides. Nothings forgotten Nothings will ever forgotten!
                Men from other side (27000+), they too battled for their ideology. They too gave their heart and soul for a value system which they thought that was right. After all they are also fellow Sri Lankans.
                 There are mothers, fathers, brothers, lovers, sons and daughters in both sides weeping even at this hour. Has anyone of us won the war? No, but surely we both finished the war. Only time will heal the wounds of our souls. While commemorating those fallen men, let’s rally around to build this nation. A nation with a notion of one country, and that all men are created equal. Neither ethnicity nor the class should have difference under this flag. We all are Sri Lankans!
