  Resolved Question: A struggle for democratic
http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/comment-on-sri-lanka-presidential-election/article6732968.ece The announcement of the elections, however, coincided with an unprecedented political manoeuvre. Former President Chandrika Kumaratunga, humiliated by the regime since her retirement, joined forces with UNP leader Ranil Wickramasinghe to capitalise on a disillusioned SLFP old guard, which had been sidelined by the regime. Mr. Sirisena, who had risen from the ranks of the peasantry in the historic Sinhala heartland of Rajarata, and with considerable appeal to the rural Sinhalese voters, stepped forward to lead the Opposition. The regime’s support for Bodu Bala Sena, a fascist movement of virulent monks that led the attacks against Muslims, has ensured a wholesale Muslim vote against the regime.

  Resolved Question: If the famous Ranganatha
http://www.sify.com/news/the-god-that-lanka-forgot-imagegallery-features-kehmH6ccacf.html The epics say Lord Ram gifted an idol of Lord Ranganatha to Ravana's brother, Vibhishana, to express his gratitude for helping him win the Lanka war. After the coronation of Ram in Ayodhya, Vibhishana was returning to Sri Lanka and he placed the idol near Trichy. Later, he found he could not move the idol from the spot. Devotees believe that Lord Ranganatha refused to leave the spot, where the famous Lord Ranganathaswamy temple in Srirangam now stands. What if Vibhishana had taken the Ranganatha idol to Sri Lanka and built a temple there? Would it have changed Sri Lanka's history? Would it have prevented the Tamil unrest that the world witnessed centuries later? Chandrika Kumaratunga, former president of the island nation, believed Lord Ranganatha could create peace in Sri Lanka. She wanted to build a Ranganatha temple in Colombo, because, she believed, a Hindu temple would pacify the warring Tamils. She entrusted the work to famous sculptor V Ganapati Sthapati.

http://www.tribuneindia.com/2013/20130224/ground.htm Chandrika Kumaratunga, former President of Sri Lanka, may be out of power but her words still carry plenty of weight. I met her at a wedding in Delhi recently and asked her what she thought of the current situation in Sri Lanka. Her answer was succinct: “We may have won the civil war against Tamil separatists but we are losing the battle for peace.”
