62nd Independence Day of Sri Lanka

A day to think like a Sri Lankan and act like a Sri Lankan despite the race, religion and colour of you and me. This time we celebrate our independence with pride after defeating the LTTE on last year. LTTE was at that time an internationally organized terrorism outfit and Sri Lanka is the first and the only nation who was able to defeat such a strong separatist terrorist organization through a war.

Evidence from the history shows division among Sri Lankans have always brought bad consequences to the country. So let’s remember the lessons learned and play our role to build our motherland.

May our nation be blessed by the Noble Triple Gem.
