Nearly two years ago, I visited my daughter who was working in Sri Lanka. It was a beautiful country, full of welcoming people, lotus pools, water buffalo and – and ever increasing tension and violence. The Government had decided to resume the war with the ‘Tamil Tigers’.
Now, at last, the British media are starting to report this terrible destructive conflict. We as individuals can’t do much to change the situation, but I continue to believe that the truth has a path and an importance of its own.
Listen and weep. Small countries cannot afford civil wars – nobody can afford civil wars. Sri Lanka has the potential to be a prosperous country.
