  • I'm going to keep asking this every day till the govt takes some (any?) action. Will you RT with me?

    @RW_UNP When are you going to arrest people who brought the country to economic collapse? Or are you only going to arrest protestors and let the big fish go?

  • Is Dulquer Salman going to be the cross-language star of the new generation? He's had movies in Malayalam, Tamil, Hindi, and now (maybe I missed previous ones?) in Telugu …

    And he seems to be doing great no matter what the language is. Looking forward to "Sita Ramam" … 10:57:29

  • Not going to have the next chapter of "Sir Lanka Files" done today 🙁 I'm halfway through the chapter but need time to finish/polish.

    Might have to go to a chapter every other day schedule. Hard juggling work, personal stuff, and writing.

    I'm too old for this 😜 11:43:56

  • Sri Lanka, no country like any other indeed.

    Guys can talk filth all they want. Abuse women freely in public transport. But a woman shows her middle finger and suddenly all these guys become paragons of morality.

    Where were these standards when your elected MPs did worse? 19:03:16

  • Continuing my new story, "Sir Lanka Files" (no that's not a typo 😛) … on to chapter 3:

    I might actually be able to maintain this pace let's see 🙂 The art as always is from Dall-e: https://t.co/LVdVQvWR63 https://t.co/um5FrBzPFB 09:27:00

  • Looks as if the story I started might turn into a novel 🙂 I think I’m just going to write a chapter at a time and publish on the blog and see where it goes … Just another 40 chapters or more to go 😛

  • Oh yes, do tell us what these “visa conditions” are … After all as a journalist, I’m sure you looked into these visa conditions before talking about them vaguely, right?

    No?

    OK. How about you go find the conditions first before doing so much bum kissing? https://t.co/IvBTEo99nv 08:45:44

  • I think all of us in Sri Lanka have to keep repeating this every single day till the government takes some (any?) action.

    @RW_UNP When are you going to arrest people who brought the country to economic collapse? Or are you only going to arrest protestors & let the big fish go? 08:53:02

  • 💯 We need to highlight this over and over and keep repeating this. Don’t think that this is well-known. Keep mentioning what the SL government is doing and the fact that they are on a witch hunt till they stop.

    They should take action against the real criminals from their ranks https://t.co/sL0TXGC12s 09:33:53

  • Ah yes, of course we’ll wait and see … We always wait and see …

    But the question is, who asked this president to come? Did the people ask for this?

    Or is his arrival only welcomed by people like Rathana, Gandassara et al? https://t.co/ELMeJsP3rw 12:24:25

  • Sometimes, just seeing an image like this first thing in the morning can make you realize how utterly, insignificantly tiny you are in the grand scheme of things … 🙂

  • Finally got part of the story I had tumbling around in my head about a Thieves Guild and Sri Lanka down … Not much meat to it yet, but it’s a start.

    https://t.co/BYIh3xdgux

    Trying out Dall-e for artwork. Which one works better, do you think?

    #LKA https://t.co/lPo7WbEEZq 08:17:38

  • Also, when would the wheels of justice start grinding to arrest those who really put the country in the outhouse?

    Or won’t that happen till they’ve sorted out all the minor infractions since the “bigger fish” will take more effort?

    Right, right, when pigs fly, I hear you say? https://t.co/NyjY2YspG2 08:23:07

  • Umm … so, are we going about this in descending date order? First go after the most recent offenders and then sometime in the future (how far is indeterminate at this point …) he will go after the May 9th offenders since they might not be part of parliament by then?

    Sound OK? https://t.co/bRxLudnkZv 11:51:25

  • Leave the beer mug alone (what good is retrieving it going to do anybody anyway?) when is police going to arrest anybody who stole the country’s money?

    Never, you say? Sounds about right … https://t.co/xEO43F24q0 16:13:48

  • There is no democracy left when we let in power-hungry dictators.

    All those who said that “Ranil will set things straight,” where are you now?

    He certainly is working, for himself and his cronies. But definitely not for the country! https://t.co/mF43PG0N6b 12:08:17

  • Sri Lankan government and police investigating the important stuff.

    This really is the need of the hour.

    Where are all the people who were hailing the #Aragalaya as saviors? Too busy pumping gas? Or too busy kissing ass? https://t.co/b9A4eqYKCd 19:06:21

  • Really love "pundits" who won't come out to play on Twitter 😜

    They run in, give you advice that you didn't ask for, then run off and block you. I guess they're that much in love with their own words? 20:07:56

  • Speaking of this story, I had forgotten that I started another story sometime back that I didn’t actually complete 😛

    But I finally updated my writing site with that story today:
    https://t.co/USw93toyaA

    So much to write, but so little time … https://t.co/fI2cSRx2GD 08:54:17

  • Yeah, we’ve turned the corner so many times that everybody’s going round the bend … 😛 https://t.co/o7w01tYYbK 09:30:59
  • Of course *now* is not the time for Gota to come back. Tomorrow would be better, but as they say in Asterix, “tomorrow never comes …” 😛 https://t.co/MZ3pX5tqaB https://t.co/DF8lsjKtyt 09:44:28
  • So tired of hearing people talk about “rules” as the magic solution to everything.

    Rules do not change people. At best, it makes them less likely to do something because they are afraid of consequences. But the underlying mindset remains the same …

    But you do you … 12:37:30

  • Yes, all of you get together and help Ranil build his house while he destroys our country.

    Poor chap, he has nothing left except for the presidency, after all! https://t.co/PYOaahdada 08:26:01

  • I don't know what it is about Sunny Kaushal but I think he'll do well as an actor. Everything of his that I've watched, he's been great as an actor. Might be the one to watch in the new generation of Bollywood actors … 16:41:11
  • Been toying with the idea of writing a new story set in my usual "fifty galaxies" universe and I finally decided to take a shot at it …

    The characters are beginning to come alive in my mind and that's not always a good thing because then I *have to* write … https://t.co/ORlZEf5THm 20:25:22

  • Been working on a quick macOS menu bar app to monitor Wise exchange rates and to alert me when a set target is reached for a given currency pair.

    Got functionality to where I want. Wondering if I should release it … https://t.co/bHpXxqejWJ 09:18:44

  • "The Princess" https://t.co/UE4tGviLe5 just feels incomplete somehow. Like a short story pretending to be a novel. The characters just don't seem fleshed out, single dimensional.

    But the fighting is interesting (tho often not believable) and it's good to see a woman kick-ass 😜 11:52:57

  • President’s flag stolen … Culprit found ✅

    President’s money returned to police … Those who returned arrested ✅

    Money from president’s house returned to courts by police ❌

    Billions stolen by politicians … culprits arrested ❌

    Definitely looks like “One country, one law”! https://t.co/GaFZb06ejt 13:46:47

  • Never mind that politicians who robbed the country roam free. Never mind that politicians who incited hatred and violence roam free.

    But do go after normal people for small issues.

    That certainly shows you are all for justice and for the people, right?

    No?

    We never learn. 08:15:39

  • Now the gallery says, "Oh, just wait a few more years. Then you can vote them out."

    Right!

    Will you have a country left in two years time? Can the person on the street even survive for two years while these bumbling buffoons run the country to the ground?

    People, I tell you .. 08:19:02

  • And this is what happens when you elect fools who in turn appoint fools and yes-men to advice them.

    You get buffoons who do not know the law of the land they are supposed to be serving and create their own laws to suit their needs.

    And yet, we bow down to them bending in two 🤨 https://t.co/7Nnk0fZihM 11:22:10
