Winning the war, a triumph of all people
Our President led our Security Forces and our
people with courage and fortitude to victory over forces of
violence, destruction and separatist terrorism. President Mahinda
Rajapaksa has impressed upon the people of Sri Lanka that this was
no victory for one segment of the community over another.

Time to rebuild our friendship
I write this with a lot of sadness, relief and
hope, from what has happened in the past few months. As a Tamil,
(and proud to be one) I deeply feel that together, we can build the
burnt bridges and pave a path to peace, happiness, equality and
prosperity for us and for the future generations to come.
