  1. Very often I saw President Gotabaya Rajapaksa with the Buddhist Monks through his Facebook postings. Now days I see the President with the other countries’ representatives who provide COVID 19 vaccines to Sri Lanka. Clearly, the South Asian leaders have become professionals by playing religious cards to keep their power. At the same time they become beggars when they are in trouble. Sri Lanka has requested vaccine from rich countries. Sadly, two billion South Asians have been tricked and fooled by their leaders. Basically, all the South Asian leaders are having the same mindset but different faces. I don’t have a hope anymore for South Asia. A revolution seems impossible, because everybody thinks the same, including defence personnels. There is no chance to have a revolution in South Asia as China did in the 1940s. This is truly a tragedy. I have supported Gotabaya Rajapaksa and I will never endorse anyone ever again. The future of South Asia is dark and miserable. Many of you can’t see what is coming; if you do, you would not be begging every rich country for help.
