Tragedy and strategy of coconut


Not only coconut but also aricanut and peanut and all other nuts facing a threat of decaying and vanishing due to high tech material development plans and implementations and increasing population. those who consumed our coconut in the past , i guess now ready to export their coconuts to this island.  local trade authorities and traders cannot decrease the price of coconut again due to high jet mechanisms of local economy. But apparently, thanks to God the governments yet to come or the government still exists do not have tto spend much money on 'importing coconut' is planning to import coconut in the future. i have no idea how much the government will have to pay for a piece. 

I thought it is easier to find a solution locally other than purchasing Europe coconut or continental coconut but now that the experts says it is cheaper to import coconut from another country, i too started believing so. what are the advantages of implementing such suggestions of the MP's of local parliament? One of the advantages is that by doing so, purchasing coconut from another country, Sri Lanka can contribute development of economies of other countries , globally. 

According to what i realize, now the local consumers have learned other strategies, low expenses  mechanisms , such as reducing the quantities they consume per day, start experimenting other strategies such as 'cook without coconut' yet i do not know to what extent the local consumer will have to minimize / decrease the quantities consuming.  

i thought it is easier and advantageous if the government tries to directly purchase coconut from the growers without purchasing from the trade middlemen. Now that there is a suggested mechanism they do not have to worry about implementing such mechanisms.

i thought it is good if the authorities try to study the reasons as to why the local prices of coconut grown locally increases day by day can possibly apply a permanent treatment. But now that they have a solution no need of thinking of implementing such mechanisms. 

i thought , it is good if the government can give a good rate that the private trader offers them,  the local growers , village level, district level traders, keeping a little margin for government , they can give and sell coconut for a reasonable, affordable price to local consumers. Yet, now that they have decided to import coconut from another country , there is no requirement to establish such a mechanism in the country. 

at the beginning of jet pricing rate of locally grown coconut, i felt little sad when thinking of consuming kiribath (milk rice) , kiri hodi (gravy cooked of coconut milk) ala kari (potato curry) pol pittu, pol rottee in the future, but not any more, now i feel enormously happy thanks to government's new coconut and rice plan. 

Hats off to the government's new suggested 'coconut and rice plan'.

Getup Stand up ...............





Getup Stand-Up for your right. Said BOB MARLEY. i cannot think of a single person who has not heard about that song. people still use that song for various motivational purposes. this song lead me to write something about votes and rights of others. i guess getup, stand -up the melody of the song or the lyrics cannot be stolen because it is not something that others have not heard about before. 

Vote is a right, who doesn't know that? it is not a right won just few years ago. 

i watched the Manchurian Candidate yesterday. i felt that election business is same everywhere. it is just ways and approaches of candidates and the issues they targeted at to earn votes, how they respond and face each others' opposition candidates and their aims and objectives differ from person to person, often country to country.  

i thought of voting for any candidate who tries to safe guard the right of authors. right to write etc.  i thought of voting any who get the side of those who try to do something genuine using their born talents or the talents they have enhanced through education and opportunities given or offered to them.

i think in this modern world we live, unlike in the ancient eras , most cannot protect their computerized stuff. it is not something common to this region or to few, but everywhere. for such issues no agency can help other than the 'internet security systems' and sometimes it is not possible due to those who know how to challenge such mechanisms. it is something that each and every person should try to cultivate within. i.e. though you see no tags such as 'all rights reserved', though you see an icon named or called as ' copy', paste or download', though you have the cash power or political power every candidate or a supporter must refrain from doing such things.

i have often heard about such situations, people complaining of stolen creations of others, altering applying them in another duplicate creations (modifications) the way they like.

i think we all must vote against such systems  or mechanisms.

Dual face of America

Yesterday I read what was published in the Divine Divaina  Sinhalese Newspaper with a map of suggested (by whom?) future administration divisions of our country.

Now, America is engaged in a war against what objective of whom?

And here in this country, same country above mentioned raising awareness on federalism. They are sponsoring for the awareness?

Dear friends, do you think that America is doing that knowing pure objective of the requested of the federal administration?

Which part for whom?

All what the LTTE wanted was the political power of that geographical segment.

What is the meanings (literal and otherwise) of political power by the way?

Those who have the political power has the Decision Making Power.

Are you suggesting our people to go for an ‘administration system that Pakistan once had?

Now who is monitoring those awareness Campaigns?

In what languages they do these awareness programmes?

The content?

Who are the speakers?

Were they given permission to do so, by the Administration of our country?

very well knowing the current political trend of the world and knowing the history of the country, are you not afraid of this suggested 'federal mechanism'?  

Now anyway, no Sinhalese get chances to appoint as Member of Parliament in Jaffna Peninsula because I am very sure no one is willing to vote for a Sinhalese contestants?

Already there is such a system or tradition established in the area. And if you take the description of a government worker, they cannot refuse to work in another geographical or administration divisions other than the area they live, residential areas, village etc.

Now, what is this new system they are requesting for and suggesting for that is not in current practice?

Who wants the Eastern part of the country?

Who wants the southern part of the country and Northern?

Now previous government/s implemented a system that every government worker should learn TAMIL language and if not they are not given any chances for ‘promotions or salary increments. According to what I know it is still in practice. If you visit Batticaloa there is an area that the street names are written in Arabic Language if my memory is accurate. But I cannot remember them reading in Sinhala which is not a big issue because the names are written in English the matter is solved.

America I do not understand your objective of you trying to raise awareness on the subject, Federal’, ‘Federalism amongst our country people.’

Now our students, teachers and others learn history of Europe including the History of America. I like to ask America whether you have started studying the history of our country.

What are the differences between the terminologies, Ealam and Federalism, according to your own awareness?

Is Federalism another term for Ealam or a modern analysis?

Dear government, what is your kind opinion on this?

The Album of History

For me Photography is an amazing therapeutic subject in every way and cameras helps you bring the entire world closer to where you live. It helps you recapture your memories or supports you to recap them without a struggle.  I am an amateur to this subject and I do not even know at least five or six letters of the subject.

I see some magic and wonder in the subject called ‘photography’.  

From the first day of invention of the mechanism and the equipment, amazing camera, every moment of histories can be reviewed or reread through the pictures or photographs.  
I like the era that you couldn’t change a picture of its originality / original form through any other system or mechanism.  Implantation of organs of someone else through advance technologies the modern world, photographers or engineers who work on the similar subjects have innovated. Such mechanism I know some use for various ill will purposes. Through the newest mechanism one can easily change a head of a person or a face of a person without any issues. Such systems has the ability to mislead or leads to miscommunication.

I believe that you can say millions of things viewing unedited photographs taken by war photographers of those days, during World Wars. But today, if any one wishes can misguide even a jury or a Supreme Court through edited or changed photographs. Especially now that you live in a digitalized world where you and I use no negatives / reels for private captions. I am not doubting the supremacy of the system (law and order) yet you can find evidences from history if you try to read court cases heard in courts here or there of the world, I guess.  The justices are or were always given based on evidences available. Beyond evidences what can you do? If you cannot justify falsifications of photographs provided as evidences of something, weight of editions (photographs) you can imprison a person or hang till death. Therefore I do not trust the modern photographs as true evidences of something. Unless you have an accurate mechanism to identify such things.  
Photographs / photographers still play an immensely important role as a provider of evidences of events of histories of mankind.

I guess the history of European Segment were captured through this mechanism very before the Asia was captured and framed or put them in albums.

The students of histories can use the old photographs as secondary guide to either justify or prove incidents or events happened in the past or to learn about their social or cultural or even political behaviors of human beings of gone by decades or centuries.

You can capture every singular wrinkle of a man or a woman and at the same time you can teenalize the wrinkles appear on the photographs giving it a nourishing look. But, I do not like such mechanisms.

In a way, digital systems are low cost mechanisms. All what you need is a good quality camera, no need to worry about buying negatives / reels and thinking of taking them to a laboratory or to a studio.  

I guess for an honest secret agents it’s a good tool. Though you can lists the differences between video mechanisms and still photography mechanisms, I still think ‘photography as a strong way of communication.

This mechanism can tells you or has the ability to tell you very many stories. In some cameras you get the date and time of the photograph taken / event / incident captured marked on the photograph.

There are evidences of stolen photographs from family precious albums and treasured, I read.

It helps to analyze war zones through the cameras I guess.

There are ways to capture geographical segments of a country from the angle of your preference.  It is a 360 degrees job, you think?

Sometimes, I feel that future is just a ‘click’ away.

In this modern world we live you cannot revisit exact place that you visited about a decade or so or even a week ago. It is like one cannot step into same river twice. The world is keep changing keeping memories captured with us.    

You may not see any slums along the railway tracks of Kelani Valley if you visit them in about a year or so I like to believe. Like you cannot revisit the same Geographies of Egypt, ancient or Venice or Thames or surroundings of Nile or Amazing Amazon like in 1500 or later. But through these amazing mechanisms you can revisit them in the future recap them through your memory lenses, I believe.

Objectives and current Practices of achieving Unity among United Nations'


I guess Unity and United is the most used set of word of the current usage of languages. Not only in English but also in other colloquial local languages. 

What is the reason?

Are people of the globe we live still starve to achieve unity? Is it still something missing in people’s lives? If it is something not fully or totally achieved, what is lacking? What needs to be done?

Is political interventions of each countries adequate to achieve what is locally and globally required to achieve?

When you know in this democratic, vote is valid and powerful world, each and every (almost) country is politically divisioned within how hard it is to work towards achieve the perception of unity within or outside to one’s geographical or otherwise boundaries?  

Every individual has a political party they favour for, interested in supporting. Can you expect a united community, communities, countries , when nations worldwide or within politically not united but divisioned?  

According to what I learned Democracy is nothing else but motivating and encouraging individuals to engage in party politics other than enjoying or embracing, using, their rights towards democratic terms, right to speak, right to write, right to act, education, ‘liberty added thinking’ other than carrying what others want you to believe or follow.

What freedom you have when you are a member of a global community formed by many members that represent almost every nation of the globe in ‘freedom to local administration’, ‘freedom to independent geographical resources called ‘countries’ ‘ own independent security mechanisms’?

What is the role of a ‘True Mediator?

What definition can you give the above term or how do you prefer to describe the term ‘true mediator’?

How does it affect the true mediator’s political interests, beliefs, attitudes, regional or continental childhood socialization factors towards maintaining local and global peace and harmony, ‘unity’?

How important it is for a true mediator to live free from ‘personal political favoritisms?

How important it is for global organizations established to achieve said, mentioned, printed as visions and missions, objectives play their roles as ‘impartial true mediators’?

How important it is for a true impartial mediators to cultivate within ‘the qualities of identifying true desires of requests of each community members?

How important it is for a true impartial mediator to learn not only geographies (boundaries) of a specific country but histories every carefully very before trying to intervene in something or trying to implement something they think is right reading or listening to perceptions , reports of one singular party?

How important it is to very clearly know the true meaning of ‘freedom to gather and advantages and disadvantages of ‘freely gathering and meeting, especially when you know have evidences of terrorism acts, implementations, strong networks, supporting groups within a community, country, region, continent, globe?

Further to get clearer answer for the above,

How important it is to not to encourage any community to politically division through geographical boundaries though it looks like ‘democratically uniting’?

What is more important ‘punishing terrorism or punishing peace achievers’?

How does according to books of rights and laws, current practices and ways of trying to establish or protect rights of human beings helps or support ‘true, sustainable Peace and Harmony?
How such current practices does helps not to grow or cultivate ‘sustainability of hate, continuation of past practices of terrorism or desires towards achieving separate state indirectly, if you take our country for an example?  

Now that we live in a world where there are no busses or seats allocated to each and every nation or race, how important it is to support nations not to either geographically or politically division within but to live mixed with each other trying to use their political and otherwise rights while trying to learn each other’s beliefs and demands?

Though we know that there are private estates there are no private states or private kingdoms in this so called democratized world we must further encourage world to maintain their public states and public kingdoms, independent countries to live long not separating from each other any of the existing or expecting ways but supporting each and every Nation towards a promoting , enhancing their perceptions towards better world, free from ‘thinking of separate states’ but as Nations United with each other.

Thank you for reading.

Windy thoughts

Come Wind, come

Come and Embrace me

Yet, do not bring any droughts

Bring some wetness, instead.

Keep this in your mind, do not enhance (bush) fire

Bring me some moisture from the Nile in a moon lit night.

Is Mississippi safe these days?

Can you hug Howang ho on behalf of me?

Here, take these seeds and spread them in Nigeria.

Dear wind,
Come and bring me some courage from the people who built the Great Wall.

Yet, tell them ‘divisioning’ is something I do not encourage.  

Wind, please handover this message to the people in Balukistan as well

They should hear the word ‘secureness’ from ‘within’    
Tell India, Korea and US, fighting in ‘public has no worth’.
