  1. “Gampaha Thakshila College Principal arrested on bribery charges” You should not put the school’s name in such a news. No one put the name of school in their web sites but what the hell is this. You should know how to post a news without any information such as this. I’m highly disappointed with this. Never expected this from such a famous web site. Highly dissatisfied with this.

      This is actually good reporting. The journalist has complied with the 5 W’s of journalism. He/She has covered the Who, What, Where, When, and Why, in the article.

      Your dissatisfaction stems from the fact that the school was named in the article. The disgraceful conduct of the Principal has no bearing on the reputation of the school. You have no reason to be embarrassed about the naming of the school. If everyone was as proud and concerned about the school as you, it must be a ‘damn’ good school.
