  1. Kottu is not a Sri Lankan meal. It is a cheap, quick street food served in some south Asian countries. If one saw the creepy crawlies in a kottu dish served to people in a restaurant in Sri Lanka, you would not touch it. Kottu is a good opportunity to get rid of left over stale meats and veg together with food unfit for sale, prepared by sweat pouring operatives. Please stick to our normal food from reliable outlets. Folks, you have been warned.

  2. Even the price of grass will have to go up soon. This is not a satirical or sarcastic comment. It is a statement of fact. The POOR in Sri Lanka will be faced with a period of unprecedented suffering shortly. The positive will be the forced agitation for genuine political change that will follow.
