  • 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.

  • Youth Enterprise: Empower & Sustain

    We have to ensure that we have an enterprising young generation, who are not afraid to take risks, who are open for innovation, who can identify opportunities, who wish to impact the society and who are capable of leading others towards success. How can we instill all these in an individual? It will not be easy by any means.

  • A Micro Problem with a Macro Effect

    Very few will dispute that the ocean is beautiful, with its many fish in different and vibrant colours. The beauty of it all is astounding. However, not many people give much thought to the destruction that is brewing, invisible to the naked eye.
