  • Exclusion-Through-Inclusivity-The-Differently-Abled-Community-of-Sri-Lanka-

    Let’s start with accessibility. We have legislation in place, yet compliance with regulations remains an issue. Building design must incorporate features that allow accessibility and existing structures must be maintained; persons with disabilities must not be deprived of their rights to participate in public life.

  • The Pain of the Brain Drain

    Youth want to be different and make a significant contribution to the country. However the some young people study overseas only to return and find that there are no jobs available. So they leave the country in search of jobs outside.

  • Sri Lankan Women in Politics

    There is a deep rooted prejudice among the general public pertaining to the role of women, and – if they do decide to run for elections – how exactly should they do so?

  • Are Young People #AddingValue?

    The CYF is yet to convince me that a large majority of young people can decide for themselves. Having said that, I did meet a handful of young people who are championing wonderful initiatives in their respective communities. So are young people #AddingValue? I believe some of them are. What do you think?

  • What I Expect From the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris

    My message to world leaders is clear: success in Paris depends on you. Now is the time for common sense, compromise and consensus. It is time to look beyond national horizons and to put the common interest first. The people of the world – and generations to come – count on you to have the vision and courage to seize this historic moment.

  • It’s Time for Holistic Education

    Regardless of whether it is in an air-conditioned room or an open garden with lovely trees, as long as the content of what is being taught is holistic and is sensitive and done well, our country can move along a steady upward trajectory.
