  1. First and foremost, India should focus on its internal problems, especially looking after the orphan children who lost their parents due the pandemic, poverty and other disasters. Don’t try to be heroes, one more virus such as Delta Plus you are done. The Corrupt and foolish South Asian leaders are not going to save South Asia. The worse is yet to come, corrupt leaders can’t be the saviours. Most of the South Asian politicians are not qualified but wealthy and popular than people like me. South Asia is under the curse, it is going to pay a high price in the near future. Rohitha Rajapaksa and media personnels (Partners in crime) think they are wiser than people like me. They are going to find out the reality in the near future. Finally, the judgement day is coming to punish the fools and thieves.
