By Jeewana Pahan Thilina All of us are in a race.'We run, run and run and it is never ending.' It seems as if there is no time to even breathe. Like for Nissanka. When Nilanthi Madam shouts for Nissanka, as he says 'he breathes while walking.' This race a truly amazing race! No one knows who started it or when or how? We are in this race now for generations upon generations. Previously the race commenced with either the O Level or the A Level. Now it is not the same. We cannot even won...

By Prabath Attanayake It was a trek of 19 kilometers into the jungle. We commenced our journey from the village Bogamuyaya. Ven. Suddhassilankara Thera was leading the procession. We fell in formation behind the monk. We had to cross the Panajjal Oya first. It was flowing by in a lazy manner towards the Maduru Oya Forest Reserve. Although every stream had its origins in the Forest Reserve it was not so with the Panajjal Oya. Although the Bogamuyaya we mentioned previously you assume yo...

By Vasika Udurawane It's probably time to talk about Leonardo DiCaprio and his fantastic Oscar win. We were all waiting for it, and all he had to do was crawl through the snow, wear furs, grow a beard and eat a raw bison liver to make it happen. Not a bad feat, when you consider that acting is indeed a gruesome and grueling business. Hollywood glamor and a massive salary probably come into play much later for the poor souls who have to suffer for the arts. Reading about the man's trial...

They were uniquely and diversely talented artists who ...

By Hansi Attygalle It is possible that it could be your child. It could be your life too. Anyhow people who go in search of money cannot find their own life. With money the happiness of life and everything else gets buried and disappears. Therefore, the fact that life is not having a job or money, or privileges should be understood. At the same time, you cannot wipe your hands off by aiming that accusation at your parents when things go wrong everywhere in your life. You too have a resp...
