We, Sri Lankans, mark the 60th independence day tomorrow (Feb. 4th). Or have we actually gained real independence? While corruption and inflation are looming, people find it really hard to keep home fires burning. Party politics has made things worse. It's time we realize that it's only through unity we can achieve the dreams of those shed blood and toiled in 1948 and before, and achieve true independence.
(Update: And the most brutal terrorist group (some information in this wiki page may not be fully consistent as I can see a lot of undoing going on. As a side node, wikipedia should come up with a way to detect suspicious modifications and maintain the authenticity) marked the day with a series of suicide bomb attacks[1, 2, 3] killing innocent civilians)
