I'm very sorry for loss of youre relations and friends.As sri lankans it's our resposibility to REBUILD our country

Govind Pershad
The story of survival is closely linked to one's faith in God, accompanied by strong will power. We should not try to belittle God and His desciples for petty political or personal milage, as the present Govt. has been doing to the Great Shankracharya. The results are before us; the state suffered the most damage.

Anne
Dear Ruban I am very sorry for the loss of your wife's family and your friends. I hope we, as an international community can make a difference with our support for those who find themselves helpless in their grief and suffering at this present time and to continue to send them our financial support in order to enable them to rebuild their communities.
