  1. Many Sri Lankan do not know that tea export has fallen by 50% due to an incompetent decision. Stopping chemical fertilizers without having enough organic fertilizers is a foolish decision. I do not believe that you have the ability to develop the country. You don’t have integrity, so you won’t tell the truth to the people. It doesn’t matter; if you are SLPP, SLFP, UNP, TNA or JVP; your dark skin reflects your mind. It may take 1000 of years for you to think as Chinese or Westerners.

    You are fooling yourselves; if you think that you can think the way I do by living in Sri Lanka.

    I was born in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. My dream of changing the world started with myself, at the age of 14. I had understood that education leads to knowledge and knowledge leads to power. When I was 16 years old, I had completed reading about Gandhi, Martin Luther King Junior and President Abraham Lincoln. When I was 17 years old, I started to ask questions about the civil war and its legitimacy.

    I clearly comprehended that India did not take arms to fight for its freedom but creating Tamil armed groups was made no sense. The people around me didn’t answer my questions about the civil war’s legitimacy but quickly undermined my knowledge and credibility, because I was a teenage boy. When I was twenty years old, I decided travel internationally to feed my knowledge further.

    When I completed my business degree in Australia my business, accounting, economics and taxation knowledge significantly improved. Asia’s massive population made me to study postgraduate studies in Human Resources Management. My postgraduate studies in HRM highlighted me South Asian leaders’ incompetency to use the largest population to beat the rest of the word.

    On top of my postgraduate studies, I have read more than 300 books to expand my knowledge in world history, global economy and international affairs. World history made me understand the West’s countries’ fake democracy and human rights. Centuries, Native American, Australian and Canadian Aboriginal have been kept in the bottom to make sure that they will not have education to gain the knowledge, because knowledge leads to power.

    Furthermore, I have done two pieces of research papers. My first research piece was ‘What are the stumbling blocks for Asians to prosper as the world’s majority in Asia, as well as in the world?’ My second research piece was ‘What made the Western countries so powerful, and what does it take them to keep their power?’ For both pieces of research, I chose the research materials because the western countries would not support this kind of information to equip Asians or tell the world how they have been ruling and intending to carry-on.

    I also have lived in four continents and travelled to over 25 countries around the world to understand cultures, local economy and political systems. I am a passionate intellectual when it comes to enlightening others through my knowledge and speaking out for the people who cannot speak for themselves, especially for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia.

      • Billions of South Asians would not write a sentence about me, but wrote plenty of lies about corrupt politicians so their party can win elections. This region is cursed for thousands of years. I honestly hope that China divides and conquers South Asia, subsequently these fool end up as refugees in the developed countries. This will be a great gift for convict Australians and their western cousins for supporting corruption in South Asia. The dragon must defeat the corruption in South Asia otherwise it will eat entire Asia. The West wants corrupt developing countries, so it can continue to dominate the world. Therefore, the dragon must defeat corruption in South Asia and send those corrupt South Asians as refugees to Australia, Canada, America, Britain and also to the other European countries.
