One who has never seen a mountain and living in a plane distance is the only strategy.
One who lives in a mountain the height is the only strategy.
This was what I saw with the previous regime who came from the flat land in the deep south and not seen the Piduruthalagala.
In practice they flatten every opinion or alternative view with the help of Gunadasa Amarasekara, Nalin and Amaratunga Combo.
For example Tamil or Muslim opinion were flattened as nonsense with 'Jana Gosa', a simple practice originated from South with Ma Ra in the forefront in 1970s including human rights (which the minorities lacked and later majority with opposing views) and later developed into political thuggery.
It is strange that people in the top of the hill has the panoramic view which the people in the planes never grasp.
It is equally strange that the Indian State worker is the one who has the panoramic view of the abuse he/she sustained under the British, their own bosses and of course the majority (who lived down below).
It is time to wake up to the reality and ask the pertinent question that who will climb the mountain to understand the difficulty every citizen encounter in day to day life.
