Sri Lankan president’s 2nd term celebrations

It is a great day for the reigning president Mahinda Rajapaksa as he took oaths to officially start his 2nd term in office. I wish him all the best for his term.

The streets have been lit up and various festivities are organized to commemorate this occasion. I’ve noticed that this brought some criticism among the people that it’s a waste of public funds. I think that is an unfair call. I compare this to a situation where the British monarchy celebrating theta special moments with all grandeur. When this happens we all watch in joy and the British also enjoy it thoroughly. They don’t claim it to be a waste of public funds. The head of the state should celebrate special occasions and we as responsible citizens should not be so narrow minded. After all, It is the president elected by a significant majority.BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.
