Corolla: World's most popular car
It'll never stir the passions like a Ferrari and you won't see its picture adorning the bedroom wall of the average adolescent teenage boy. But the venerable Toyota Corolla has overtaken Fords F-series truck to become the best selling vehicle of all time.


Nothing like Mama’s food
We’re still on about Galle after the literary festival. But it’s impossible to make a trip down that way without dropping in at ‘Mama’s’.

The painful story behind the making of a fast bowler
Was the human body created to bowl fast by whomever the creator he was. The answer is a definite no.

In the opening ceremony, Mr. Andradi commented “Education is a gift that should be shared with the wider community”.
Freedom struggle continues overseas

Sri Lanka marked the 64th anniversary of its political Independence from nearly 400 years of foreign rule yesterday with the Government's celebrations at the historic ancient capital of Anuradhapura. The Anuradhapura era, when Lanka was a free nation, was a marvel in its day. Some nations that are super-powers today, policing the world, were not even in existence at the time.

Govt. on firefighting mode to face Geneva volcano -- Political Column
United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton issued a virtual 'ultimatum' to the government of Sri Lanka this week. In essence, it is a call to address accountability issues relating to the final stages of the separatist war in May 2009 or face a resolution at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva in the coming weeks.
Iran sanctions - put up or shut up? -- Focus on Rights

When the United States passed a law to impose sanctions on financial institutions dealing with Iran's central bank, thereby effectively obstructing other countries buying Iranian oil, it claimed its intention was to hurt Iran and not others.

From humble homes to highway
The hullabaloo that greeted the opening of the E01 in late 2011 may have been somewhat out of proportion to what one might expect a mere expressway would warrant – but while they’re common enough elsewhere, this was a first for Sri Lanka.


Heroes in the struggle for Independence
Yesterday we celebrated the 64th anniversary of Independence. It was on February 4, 1948 that Sri Lanka gained Independence from the British. So it's time to reflect upon the 'Freedom Fighters' who worked hard to free the country from the clutches of the colonial masters.
