  1. Sri Lankans show head to China, tail to the US, and legs to Indians. Sri Lankans think that they are wise, but following foolish policy, because nobody would trust them whole heartedly.

  2. Sri Lankans had decided to go behind poor India even though Britain developed Sri Lanka as the second developed country in Asia. South Asians have not evolved to think pragmatically. They take their ideology seriously than progressing to become a developed country.

    I can’t get a professional job, or an apartment to rent due to my writings. I did odd jobs to make some money which was lower than minimum wage in Australia. Plus I was sleeping in my car to save money to fix my parents’ house so my sister can live in it. But the West used disgraceful Tamils to create a story that I have been trying to take the house. My sister believes the Western Puppets. This shows ideology goes long way in South Asia than pragmatic thinking.

    China should continue to offer loans, but should not invest in Sri Lanka. This way China can tighten the noose to pressure Sri Lankan fools to do the right thing. If the people do not have common sense to come up, then putting pressure is the only way to help those foolish people. I strongly believe that billions of South Asians have no hope under corrupt and foolish South Asian leaders. Therefore, we have to enlighten those South Asian to have a revolution.

  3. China helped Sri Lanka to conclude Asia’s longest brutal civil war, invested in port city project and providing enough vaccination to combat COVID 19. However, in what ways Sri Lanka has been thankful to Sri Lanka? I rest my case.
