Disappointing Behaviour from Fellow Bloggers April 18, 2007

Posted by humanity in Uncategorized.

hello people…

I have to be honest with u guys i rele haven’t been able to check my fellow bloggers’ posts for quite a while now… well this was the case until last morning when i decided to go on Kottu and check out the latest posts by my fellow bloggers and i came across a very interesting blog called Waiting for Cupid (WFC). Well i guess most of u r familiar with this blogger coz i saw many comments on her posts by many of r Lankan bloggers…

I’m sorry to say this but i was very disappointed by the comments given by many of my fellow bloggers. Here’s a little girl, just 14 years old, learning about life, love and disappointments that life brings… she finds comfort in writing on her blog about the way she feels…..only to be abused by many of r fellow bloggers….. i admit that her ideas are still not mature enuf (no offence intended WFC), but that doesn’t mean we as fellow bloggers must discourage her and put her down for her thoughts and views of the world and of life as she sees it. Frankly i was pretty impressed by some of her principles of life. The fact that she didn’t approve of premarital sex ( ok ok so most girls that age dnt approve of it, but since recently things have changed and more n more of r youth r having premarital sex 😛 ) and the fact that she didn’t approve of guys throwing notes into girls vans (trust me these guys throw letters into many vans hoping they’l have luck with at least one….. truly very sad) i thought it was pretty impressive. Mayb i’m alone in this but that’s ok…..

The fact of the matter is i feel it is important that we encourage this little girl to blog…. It is also important to provide her with constructive criticism… there’s nothing wrong with that….. but i was truly very disappointed at the way in which most of the bloggers had commented and criticised her work…. the language used, the very crude references to sex and every thing else that goes with it…. she’s just 14 for crying out loud… and come on… what’s with everyone obsessing about how old she rele is…. why is it so hard to believe that she’s actually a 14 year old girl…. it’s absurd rele…. and it’s rele very sad….

Maybe u have all forgotten what it was like to be that age….. but i know for a fact that i remember how immature i was at that age and i know exactly how i saw life at that age…. with time and age i changed my ways of thinking and i became more mature (at least i hope i did *grin* ). U just have to give her time and space to learn these things and mature in her own time…… and the only way u can help her do this is by showing more support and providing her with constructive criticism….

anyways this is just my opinion…. And I just hope that all u bloggers who’ve been giving WFC a rele hard time (u no who u r) would stop ur childishness and actually support this girl and encourage her in her writing and if u rele don’t agree with some of the things she says then provide her with comments that would be useful to her to improve herself… be kind and understanding…..

well i got to go now… i hope u will all have a great day…. God bless u all…

cheers!

Misconception April 14, 2007

Hi everyone….. before i go on i would like to wish u all a ‘Suba Aluth Awurudda’ (Happy New year)….

well i’ve got a 1 week break coz of the Sinhala/Tamil new year and m trying to make maximum use out of it but so far i haven’t had much success with it… Uni has loaded me with so many projects since it’s my last semester of my final year. And to top it all off i’ve got a final year research project to finish by August and well let me just say that it’s not going as well as i expected it to.

Well today was kind of a laid back day (u can even call it a lazy day hehehe)…. we followed the usual customs for the new year celebrations and i stuffed myself with all the goodies laid at the table… am not ordinarily one to eat a lot of the traditional food usually consumed at the new year celebrations but having to wait till 2.51 p.m (auspicious time) to eat lunch wasn’t a pleasant experience, especially when the worms in my tummy decided to have a boxing match 😀

I was trying to get some sleep after lunch but i found myself thinking about all the projects i have to do for uni and well i just couldn’t get any shut-eye (too much chaos inside my head *grin*)…. so instead of trying to sleep i decided to write a post on a very serious matter that had me concerned the past couple of days…. I would like to talk to all of u out there about the misconception that most Srilankans have about Sinhala and Tamil Christians not celebrating the Sinhala/Tamil New Year….

Well the thing is this… many people think that just because a person is a Christian they should not celebrate the Sinhala/Tamil new year… u may ask why this is… well let me tell u…. many Srilankans think that the Sinhala/Tamil new year is celebrated by only the Buddhists and Hindus in Sri Lanka…. how wrong can they be. The name speaks for itself.. Sinhala and Tamil new year…..it doesn’t say Buddhist and Hindu new year….. it’s not wrong for a Christian (Sinhala or Tamil) to celebrate the new year…it’s not only the Christians who have this misconception, the Buddhists and Hindu people of Sri Lanka also have this same misconception…. My siblings and i are Christians but we have Buddhist cousins from my mom’s side (my mom’s a Buddhist) who have this same misconception that Christians don’t celebrate the S/T new year….. they used to often ask us “why do u celebrate this new year?? Ur not Sinhala” I mean EXCUSE me!!! How can v not b Sinhala…. i’m no European just coz am a Christian… besides Christianity originated in Asia not Europe (another misconception by many people)……. Anyways my point is many people Christians and Buddhists and Hindus alike have this misconception and it’s infuriating….. some of my Sinhala and Tamil Christian friends also don’t celebrate the S/T new year….. it’s really such a shame that people don’t understand that we celebrate this new year because we are Sinhala/Tamil and there’s no religion involved in this matter at all…..

I ‘m sorry for rambling on like this… but i feel i must try to change this misconception that people of Sri Lanka have….

Well once again “Oba Siyallanta Subama Suba Aluth Awuruddak Weva!!” (A Very Happy New Year to u All)

God bless u… i hope u all have a great weekend (at least what’s left of it *grin*)

Peace & Love!!!

Fashion Show or Cricket Match? April 3, 2007

wow it’s been waaaaaaaaaaaay too long…. Uni has been keeping me really busy the past few months. I’ve finally entered my 3rd and final year of my degree. Although am really happy that i’m in my final year my work load at uni has not reduced, in-fact its increased by at least twice as much. Aiyo… well what to do that’s life na…. it’s hectic and my final year is really tough but ‘m hanging in there…

I really miss writing on my blog….. i can’t believe it took me this long to find some free time to write…. well i’m not going to make this a long post since i still don’t have much time to spare 😀

I feel compelled to write some thing about the RoyTho match (rather late i no hehehe) that i attended last month. Well unfortunately i missed the Big match but i managed to make it for the 50 overs. Now i kind of wish i hadn’t gone. Cricket matches are fun and it’s definitely a place that people go to meet with friends, have a sing song and have a whole load few drinks 😀 But i never realised that it was also a fashion show…. Don’t get me wrong, i’ve been going for these matches (RoyTho) for quite a while now and have seen these fashion shows, but every year i go it seems to be getting worse. I find that the clothes worn by the girls are getting shorter and there’s always less material on them and the guys well their jeans are becoming baggier and longer by the day. (well actually i can’t say much about the guys, their attire doesn’t get them in trouble *grin*)

The thing is i always thought that a cricket match was a place where people would dress as casually as possible… i mean come on, ur there to enjoy urself in comfort…. For all those ppl who hve been for any kind of match at the SSC grounds u know how dusty and dirty u will get at the end of the day…. try walking around the whole day in high heels…. it’s crazy! how uncomfortable is that….. And come on, these matches are full of guys/men who are definitely after drinks and sometimes quite drunk i may add (no offence) and these girls wearing almost no clothes are asking for trouble…. who can blame these guys (who are after all under the influence of alcohol) when girls wear such revealing clothes at such a place like a cricket match. Don’t get me wrong, i in no way condone such behaviour of the guys but i have to admit that girls are not completely innocent in such matters. One such incident happened while i was at the 50 overs and the funny thing is i actually showed my Boyfriend the length of the skirt this particular girl was wearing and how low it was worn…. and m sure she was no more than 17 years old… My boyfriend said that no good was gonna come from it and just like that about half an hour later there was a huge fight and it had all started coz some drunk guy said something to this girl…. well what can i say…. Girls just be more conscious about the clothes u wear… coz after all ur not at a party, it’s just a cricket match….

Well i’m sorry if i sound really judgemental, it’s just that so many unnecessary problems and fights can be avoided if people were just more conscious about certain things such as their attire and choice of words. Well that’s about it for now. Hope there was some usefull advice in my blog for every one 😀
I will definitely try to keep my blog updated 🙂 Well i hope all u ppl out there are having a great week so far…. God bless you all…. and i hope u all have a wonderful week….

cheers!

My Weekend October 10, 2006

well Monday’s over and Tuesday’s almost done with too… how was ur weekend? I hope u guys had an eventful weekend, well i did 😀

Well Friday morning i was up at 5 a.m coz i had to go to the Buddhist centre for my grandmother’s alms-giving. I thought all i had to do was go there and serve around 150 plates of string-hoppers, with gravy and sambol, i didn’t know that i would also have to try and avoid an annoying guy trying to hit on me the entire time. What part of silent treatment don’t u understand… AH! it was so annoying. He was everywhere!!! I couldn’t move to the left he would move to the left, if i moved to the right he’d move to the right i couldn’t seem to shake him. He tried so hard to talk to me.. it was sad really. The best part was when my cousin called me to her side to help her serve the sambol… she wanted me to serve while she held the bowl (it was really heavy), well guess who came running in a flash… u guessed correctly 😀 he was by my side in a flash, i mean where the hell did he come from, i didn’t even c him come, anyways he said “i’l hold it, i’l hold it!” and do u know what my cousin said “ok, u hold it and i’l serve” hahahaha. It was so funny…. poor guy, he thought he could be serving with me.. *smirk* I know i sound mean but it was really funny… anyways apart from that he tried hard to talk to me but i avoided, i mean i really didn’t want to ask for unwanted trouble… well i finally left and went to my BF’s place. It was his mom’s b’day and also the day b4 his sister’s wedding. So basically i spent the whole day at his place.

Saturday was really good. It was my BF’s sister’s wedding.. the day had finally arrived! My mom had a fall and had fractured her arm so i had no choice but to go to a Salon to get my sari draped (by the way, 7th Avenue is an excellent salon) My bro picked me up from the salon around 3.30 p.m and v went to church. V had to go early coz we were in-charge of making sure things ran smoothly. I had to do the 1st reading, it was scary…. i mean to read aloud in front of so many unknown faces… so scary… but it was successful (thank You Lord!). Akki (my BF’s sis) looked really beautiful that day. Anyways after the service we went to Cinnamon Grand for the reception. It was fun… hehe. But i didn’t enjoy watching my BF having to dance with the Bride’s Maid.. hehehe… jealous, yes i am jealous..lol. But it was only one dance so i lived through it… 😀 People were not dancing at the beginning so my BF suggested we open the dance floor… i was shy but thought what the heck, so we danced to some slow music and although we had all eyes staring at us it was fun… And after awhile a few at a time started to come on to the dance floor and eventually it was full! hehe… anyways it was a blast. I was introduced 2 all the relatinons… that was a little scary, but i think it was successful 🙂 One of our fellow bloggers were also prsent at the wedding, some of u may have read his blog, ‘Dragons of Eden’. He’s a really close friend of my Bf’s and mine. He’s completely nuts!! hehe.. well every1 who know’s him know that fact about him 😀 , anyways I went home really happy that night…

Well Sunday was a loooooong day for both my Bf and myself. We were in church by 8.30 a.m. Since Sunday school(SS) vacation was over i had to go and teach that day…. i teach 5 to 7 year olds 😀 It’s crazy i know, but those kids r so adorable, exept when they hunt me down even after Sunday school’s over just so that i could push them on the swings..hehehe, but seriously they’re adorable. Anyways my Bf was handling the food sale that day, coz the YF was collecting funds ourselves. Once SS was over i joined my BF and the other YF (Youth Fellowship) members. They were busy washing cars (also another fund raiser). We finished washing the cars around 11.00 p.m and the boys did what they usually do, played foot ball. Since my BF has a busted ankle (playing rugby) he didn’t play, so we went to buy lunch for every one else while they played. V watched Madagascar (due to popular demand, though am sure almost evry1 there had already seen it at-least twice 😀  ) while having our lunch. We resumed washing cars again in the evening. Ppl tried to discourage us from going ahead with the car-wash the week before because there was not going to be a communion service and the crowd was going to be less. But through God’s grace he gave us the opportunity to collect a large some of cash. I mean every1 who came were being so generous (well almost every1). We made more than what we would have made on a normal Sunday where a large number of ppl would have been present. Praise God!

Anyways it was a really eventful weekend… unfortunately am back in the ‘rat race’ which is life. But hey, God gave us life, and i guess it’s up2 us to do something useful with r lives and give back in full all that God has given us. Well until next time, God bless u all.     

I’m Back! October 5, 2006

It’s great to be writing on my blog again 😀 Well it’s been three hectic months for me. I shifted houses in July and couldn’t even think of sitting down at the PC to write a new post, and once i finally shifted i had to wait more than 2 months to get my ADSL connection, that was the worst part, what’s more my uni decided to load me with so many projects that i just couldn’t even think of writing a new post…

Well I’ve finally settled into my new home. It was a little hard at first but i got used to it. Traveling sucks coz i live in the jungle now 😀 but other than that everything else is fine. I do miss my old house though. I used to live in a walauwa type house before, u no those really old houses. Well I don’t know abt u guys but I sure love those old houses. It was really sad to c the house torn down to the ground…*Sigh*

My biggest problem was getting the ADSL connection. Well naturally i expected a delay in getting our ADSL connection to the new plc, but after abt the 1st three weeks I realized that the ADSL connection was gonna take forever to be given to my new plc. Every time we checked up on it SLT always had an excuse and they kept promising us the connection. After abt a month they told us that they’ve lost our file. The final straw was when after close to 2 and a half months of waiting they informed my parents that they have accidentally given the connection to our old number back at the old house. I mean come on, how careless… I guess someone got a free connection on our expense. Well finally after a lot of yelling, SLT gave us the connection in a day *grin*.

Anyways Uni still sucks… they’ve loaded us with so many projects it’s just so sickening. It feels like u can’t even fall sick without getting perm from uni first. There seems to be absolutely no time for a social life coz of the work load.

Well at least there are a few things to look forward to this year.. Our church is having a carwash on Sunday and it’s gonna be a blast 🙂 It always is… Also my boyfriend’s sis is getting married this Saturday and I can’t wait to go for the wedding. It’s gonna be so much fun. I went for my 1st ever Hen party last Sunday (it was for my boyfriend’s sis). It’s was super 😀  

Hmmm well what else…. Oh my BF and I went to Kandy to watch the Bradby. It was great. We went by train in the morning and got back toColombo by bus (Intercity).  Well we reached the station around 8.00 a.m and then realized that the train wasn’t leaving till 10.30 a.m, so we decided to roam the streets of Fort for a while. Once we got back to the station we decided to stuff ourselves silly. We began with home made hamburgers which we ate before boarding the train. Then we bought a packet of Manyokka chips and ate that while waiting for the train. After getting on the train we drank two Milos, had some home made Chinese rolls, had Issa (prawn) Wadès and then just before getting off we had mango with chili powder…YUM!! Lol…I had never eaten so much in my life… well that’s not all, as soon as my BF and I got off the train at Kandy we went straight to KFC (the closest eating joint to the train station) and stuffed ourselves some more with two Buriyani rice and two pieces of Chicken… 😀 How we managed to eat so much I will never know *grin*

Well we had some time to kill before the match so we walked the streets of Kandy. We even went on a boat ride.. it was fun! We ordered r dinner around 3.15 and changed into clean clothes. We took r food around 4.00 p.m and went for the match. Well the match was pretty disappointing… I can’t believeRoyal College lost the Bradby in such a manner. Well we decided not to stick around and left soon after the match. Do u know that the intercity bus is supposed to be an AC bus, HA! What rubbish, it was so hot that I had to open my shutter slightly (so that the conductor won’t notice *grin*) to let some air in or else I would have died of the heat… anyways we had our dinner on board the bus. My BF slept for the 1st hour or so while I watched anxiously as his head kept sliding in the direction of another passenger’s shoulder (a girl!!) yeah well I get jealous ok.. I can’t help it 😛 But thankfully his head never touched her shoulder… lol. Anyways I was so sure that I wasn’t tired that when my BF woke up I insisted I didn’t want to sleep but he insisted that I should get some sleep, and believe it or not I slept like a baby… I remember laying my head on his shoulder and then I passed out 😀 I did wake up a few times but fell right back to sleep 😀 the next thing I remember was waking up to my BF’s voice telling me that we had reached Fort. It was around 10.30 p.m when we reached Colombo. Too bad the day had to come to an end *grin*

Anyways that’s all for now. I will try to keep my blog updated as often as I can but u know how hectic life can be 🙂 Well until I write again hope all of u will have a great week, God bless u all.   

A Touching Story July 4, 2006

I received an e-mail from a friend titled “guaranteed to bring a tear” (or something like that) and for once the e-mail was true to it’s word. This e-mail pulled at my heart strings and it definitely brought a tear to my eye….i thought i would share this mail with u… God bless u all…..

A Little Girl’s Poem

Her hair was up in a ponytail,
Her favorite dress tied with a bow.
Today was Daddy’s Day at her school,
She couldn’t wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her,
That she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone.

But she was not afraid,
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates,
Of why he wasn’t there today.

But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.

But the little girl went to school,
Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees
A dad who never calls

There were daddies along the wall in back,
For everyone to meet,
Children squirming impatiently,
Anxious in their seats.

One by one the teacher called,
A student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.

At last the teacher called her name,
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn’t there.

“Where’s her daddy at?”
She heared a boy call out.
“She probably doesn’t have one,”
Another student dared to shout.

And from somewhere near the back,
She heard a daddy say,
“Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day”

The words did not offend her,
As she smiled up at her Mom.
And looked back at her teacher,
Who told her to go on.

And with hand behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child,
Came words incredibly unique.

“My daddy couldn’t be here,
Because he lives so far away.
But i know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.

And though u cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy,
And how much he loves me so.

He loved to tell me stories.
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
And taught me to fly a kite.

We used to share fudge sundaes,
And icecream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him,
I’m not standing here alone.

“Cause my daddy’s always with me,
Even though we are apart.
I know because he told me,
He’ll forever be in my heart”

With that, her little hand reached up,
And lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,
beneath her favorite dress.

And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
Her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
Who was wise beyond her years.

For she stood up for the love
Of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.

And when she dropped her hand back down,
Staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
But its message clear and loud.

“I love my daddy very much,
He’s my shining star.
And if he could, he’d be here,
But heaven’s just too far.

You see he was a fireman
And died just this past year
When airplanes hit the towers
And taught Americans to fear.

But sometimes when I close my eyes,
It’s like he never went away.”
And then she closed her eyes,
And saw him there that day.

And to her mother’s amazement,
She witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children,
All starting to close their eyes.

Who knows what they saw before them,
Who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second,
They saw him at her side.

“I know you’re with me Daddy,”
To the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
Of those once filled with doubt.

Not one in that room could explain it,
For each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her,
Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.

And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
By the love of her shining bright star.
And given the gift of believing,
That heaven is never too far


Something Amazing happened! July 1, 2006

Well first of all i finished my exams yesterday..yeay!!! 😀 Anyways today’s story is about something i never thought i would ever do… so for me this was so amazing that i thought i would share it with u…

Well our Church’s 125th anniversary was on Friday and today r youth group decided to have a youth programme (u know like worship time and some games and a time of fellowship) So anyways we started it off with a few games and then after some choruses were sung we prepared ourselves to listen to the sermon… it wasn’t r parish priest who was to give the sermon.. we had invited a priest from a different church… anyways this is my story….

well very often it is difficult to give a very good sermon that would captivate the people, and most often u find that ppl would often not listen or might even fall alseep half way through :D….. Anyways it’s very rarely u get to listen to a great sermon that could really capture the congregation… anyways today was one of those rare days….

but b4 i continue i guess i must start at the beginning… i had a falling out with two of my very close friends, abt 4 or 5 years ago… we haven’t spoken since then, and even when we bump into each-other at a party or the big match or some place like that we never used to even look at each-others’ faces…. it was very easy to do this as they had really hurt me a lot… but as time heals all wounds i began to heal… slowly, but i was healing…. but yet i hadn’t forgiven them….. The Christians out there know that one of the great things abt being a christian is to be able to forgive and be forgive in return… anyways back to my story….

The priest began to teach us abt r relationship with God and with ppl and it went on like that with many illustrations and a lot of animated talk… he had managed to captivate us with his powerful msg… anyways some where along his msg he suddenly started speaking abt broken relationships…. i wont go into detail coz some of u may not understand all that am talking abt 🙂 so i shall stick to making this as simple a story as possible 🙂 He told us that many of us lie when we say the Lord’s Prayer… coz in it we say “forgive us r sins, as we forgive those who sin against us” Well how many of us have not forgiven those who have hurt us but yet say those lines when we pray… well he went on to talk abt rectifying broken relationships and so on… but the amazing thing is while he was talking i felt as if some one else was talking to me…. i felt God was speaking to me (laugh if u like but u couldn’t ever know how that felt unless u actually experience it urself) It just hit me so hard… I realised then and there that this was a msg for me… and my heart was no longer angry, and i was no longer stubborn nor too proud to forgive my two friends who had hurt me… it was an amazing feeling!! As soon as i got home i wrote to them to try to rectify the broken relationships……(isn’t the Internet wonderful :D) Well what ever the out come mayb i’m glad i did what i did…..

God bless u all…..

An Interesting Piece of History June 19, 2006

hello people… looooong time na… what to do…uni exams are coming up and it's a drag… it's taken up so much of my time….i feel so sorry for my boyfriend… we study at the same uni, and since he's in his final year it's worse for him… 😦

Anyways i got this mail from my dad, which i thought i must share with u… once u read it u'l be surprised that my DAD actually sent this mail to me 😀 trust me u'l be shocked.. hehehe… well here goes…

 

In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by
ship and

it was also before commercial fertilizer's invention, so large
shipments of

manure were common.

It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than

when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier,
but the

process of fermentation began again, of which a by product is
methane gas. As the

stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and
did)happen.

Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came

below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined
just

what was happening.

After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the
term "Ship

High In Transit" on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it
high enough

off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would
not

touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.

Thus evolved the term "S.H.I.T " , (Ship High In Transport) which
has come

down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.

You probably did not know the true history of this word.

Neither did I.

I had always thought it was a golf term.

 

Now ain't that a great piece of history….i really hope u guys enjoyed reading that… now don't u wish all history lessons were this interesting 😀

wow it's been a while hasn't it… u wont believe how hectic life is…how stupid of me.. of course u know how hectic it is :D….. Well i feel like writing something different today…

Well i turned 21 last week… but i actually don't feel like i'm 21… *grin* Well most ppl still treat me like a kid..hehehe.. and the worst part is i'm small made and not very tall and ppl mistake me for a girl in her teens.. and i don't mean late teens.. i mean like 16 😀 It's so embarrassing..hehehe… Anyways i had an eventful 21st birthday…. 🙂

Well this is gonna sound a little corny and mushy but my 21st b'day party was brilliant all thanx to my boyfriend 🙂 (well my parents and bro deserve thanx too 🙂 ) He spent the entire day helping to arrange the house and afterwards put up all the decorations… he was so cute… all sweaty and dirty… hehehe soooooo cute. And he was the last person to wash up and dress all because he wanted me to have a great day and enjoy myself… he didn't let me lift a finger… if he saw me trying to serve the drinks or attend to my guests in any way he would shoo me off and do it himself….. i didn't want him to work so hard but he's very persuasive…hehehe. Well he's really amazing, and so adorable… what would i do without him… 😀

life's been treating me good these days…. and i'm really thankful for the small blessings in my life… Quite often we forget to be thankful for what we have.

Well what did i tell u… this is quite different from what i usually write… isn't it..? 😀 I just thought i'd make this post a little personal that's all… 🙂

well am off to watch The American Idol 😀 Take care all u ppl… and have a great day!

War Is Meaningless April 28, 2006

ok so i guess u all know the latest topic discussed on almost everyone's blogs…for those of u who don't know, well it's about the current situation of the country. Anyways from what i c every1 has a lot to say, and many different opinions about the war, the situation of the country etc.

But i c a lot of anger among r own ppl… we're talking abt peace and harmony, but where's the peace and harmony among us…?? I mean among our own race. It doesn't matter if we're Sinhala or Tamil this applies to all of us. We fight among ourselves, among our own ppl, bickering over the smallest things, arguing over such trivial matters…. and we have the nerve to talk about peace….

I also want to mention the fact that if a Sinhalese talks of their disgust at the killing of Tamils it doesn't mean that they're less patriotic…It just means that he's humane. It doesn't mean that he/she is an LTTE supporter, but some one who's compassionate and Caring. It not only means that person is only affected by the killing of Tamil ppl but also the killing of Sinhala people. Even I agree that the killing of innocent ppl, Sinahala or Tamil is wrong.

I guess that's why i feel that war is meaningless…..The future of this country is dying (Sinhala and Tamil ppl alike).. And what is the government doing about it… ok maybe that's not fair for me to say… they're probably trying to do something so i'l take back my comment abt the government, but i feel so frustrated when i think of all the ppl that r dying from this war. Almost everyday i read about a bomb explosion in the North that has killed several of r troops and it saddens me… and the worst part is my sadness is not going to change anything….

It's so hard for me to understand why it's so difficult for the LTTE and the Sri Lankan government to come to peaceful terms… Sinhala and Tamil ppl have been living peacefully together…. why then does the LTTE wish to divide r beautiful island..? It's sad coz i know many of us have friends who r of different races. I'm sure we all have at-least one friend who's a Tamil….if we can live in peace with them and they can live in peace with us then what is the problem..?? It's sad really…

I guess i will never know the true gravity of this problem, and the horrors that ppl face, but i know the thought of this inevitable war is scaring me…. I'm not a coward, but i don't want any1 else to die….recently my boyfriend and i were having a talk abt the current situation in the country and he told me that if they make it compulsory for the men to join the army , that he was going to gladly join…. i just got so upset… i plain blank refused to let him go ahead with it.. i know i sound selfish and a coward, but the thought of losing him to a war that has no meaning saddens me…..

i can't begin to imagine the horror that most women face when their sons, husbands or boyfriends go to war…. everyday they await news of their loved ones… dead or alive..?? When these brave men of Sri Lanka die the government would give them a fancy burial but what's the point..? they're dead…..

Many of u may not agree with me, some of u may agree with me…no-matter what, i just want to tell u that all i'm trying to say is that war is meanigless…. and the death of innocent ppl (tamil or Sinhala) is wrong…. so pls let us keep peace in our thought, hearts and deeds at all times and try to make this country a better and a more peaceful place to live in.. for us and our future generations to come… God bless u all…
