  1. I really like your alphabet if only because we can understand the state of the country in a nutshell. The trouble is people just dont't get in Sri Lanka that they are really under a spell that they should grow out of by just using common sense, which is all your alphabet is about.

    I thank you for your contribution to the debate for the reasonong, as we are all hardworking patriots of this country who have never taken a bribe, and are proud of what we have been able to achieve despite the humoungous odds, created by the powers that completely stifle industry and hardwork, and use illegal means to fatten their buts at our expense.

    The silent majority need a voice and a way of expressing it. I sincerely hope we can come up with a song based on these words that will be catchy and also piercing so the powers that be will know they are on notice!

  2. As a foreigner married to a Sinhalese girl I just don't understand the importance of being a "pure bred" Sinhalese.

    Most of my wife's family claim to be pure bred Govi Gama ....which when they carry Portuguese names and the Roman Catholic Church doesn't recognise Caste seems somewhat ludicrous to me

    This alphabet seems to sum up the Sri Lankan mass mentality......whoever wrote it .........keep it coming

    BTW love the site!!
