Ten waterfalls in three days
In my time all this in six months while working busy as a doctor, using mainly the public transport or a jeep of one of my engineer friends, who drove it during the Mahaweli Program (before the accelerated program).
None of us had cars and our salary was less than Rs.500/= and a Pupil Teacher was paid Rs.100/=.
Out of those escapades, staying at Laxapana Electricity Board Bungalow was the best 14 days I had enjoyed without the hassle and bustle of the polluted city.
Now people do this in less than three days and make sure all these places are polluted with polythene.
They carry water bottles and we cannot drink water from a stream beginning in Adam’s Peak.
This we call the development (SICK).
We did not have polythene then.
Time is right for us to ban polythene totally.
I also want all traffic except public banned on roads (including Police and Politicians in their public vehicles - I do not think voter will miss anything) at least for a day, ideally on the Poya Day of the month.
Let the devotees try the public transport.
I vouch they cannot but we could do it in 1960s and early seventies.
We lost everything during the “Pan Polling Days of 1973“ and Middle East War.
These are few idea for the Coalition government running short of ideas.
One can plan a trek, starting from Gampola, Ulapane
But you will get run over by a politician with his entourage.
Please do not try if you want to live.
