The 1982 Presidential Election was covered for 'The Island' newspaper by me and my colleague, late Ajith Samaranayake. Among JR's contenders were Hector Kobbekaduwa and Dr. Colvin R. De Silva. Both I and Ajith had to brief on the outcome of the electoral results to our Chairman Upali Wijewardene, who was alert on that night at his residence, Thurstan Road, Colombo. Well, JR won.

We were relaxing under the Town Hall porch when Anandatissa arrived. While chatting to Anandatissa, JR alighted from his Jaguar with a smile. Anandatissa said, "Sir, you have won in a convincing manner". JR responded saying, "That's why Ananda I am here". 

Seconds later, another car followed. It was Dr. Colvin R. De Silva. Alighting from his car, Colvin called, 'Dickie, Dickie.' JR looked back and said, "Hi, Colvin, happy to see you". "No Dickie, I only came to wish you on your victory," said Colvin walking up to JR to shake hands. JR invited him into the main hall but, Colvin turned it down and while returning to his car, Colvin again said, "Dickie, I must tell you something". JR asked what it was.

Replied Colvin, "Dickie, the day you go, abolish this executive system and go, because your successors will find it difficult to keep their political parties united unlike you, and when that happens there'll be chaos in the country". "That's a matter for the future to see like Que Sera", JR quipped in a lighter vein. Colvin responded "What I say will be, will be", and boarded his car. True to Colvin's words, President Premadasa's UNP split. President Kumaratunga's SLFP split. And today, President Mahinda Rajapaksa's SLFP is also in doldrums.

GROBR for JR and his cohorts!

The remains of his dynasty can be likened to the scum of the earth.
What I like about the old regime is the sense of humour and wit, spirit of creativity and generous grandeur.

intellectual capacity of those days politicians cannot be compared with todays politicians.
see how todays educated politicians behave.
for example ,see G.L . top scholar but in front of Sachin he is nothing, zero. he is struggling to keep his portfolio.

We cannot blame today's politicians who are representatives of today's people and those old politicians are representatives of people in those days. However we experience the quality of choice of people is getting deteriorated. My message to people is that they have to choose correct people without wearing colored glasses

What people are doing today is making the same old decision. The decision to support the wrong that is being done. So the people are bad???

Do the general public like curruption and violence?
Do they endorse the lawlessness that is happening today? looks like it is so!

If you are a person who gives a bribe to a policeman to get away from a traffic offense then you are a person who is supporting corruption and encouraging lawlessness!! Who do we blame for it? Politicians or us the public?

Absolutely! The citizens of this country have to walk the talk as it were or else we will get what we deserve. We pay taxes, we vote, we praise, we condemn and we suffer.

If we also bribe, distort, get favours from the politicos for our close kith and kin and ourselves, don't declare our income, don't adhere to the laws of the land we cannot expect the scum of the earth to be better than us!

Actually if every other person does what one has to do there won't be room for the lawlessness in the first place. So back to where we are started. The chicken or the egg story? Who will start doing what is right the 1 St time? Very Happy
