    A midst the growing tension between Indian and Sri Lanka, I decided to post this wonderful video about Sri Lanka to let the steam off from our members. Hope you guys enjoy it. (P.S. Don't forget to check out the links posted on the video)

    Would it be a good idea to go with the state tourism or private tourism orgs? How much would be the visa? how costly would be lodging? any idea? I don't like star rated hotels... much prefer home-stay kind of arrangements.

    Medium lodging cost around 50-150 USD per day
    Lower lodging cost around 50 less per day

    Well mate I do not know much about Visa... I'll try to hook someone who knows... cheers.

    how do you sleep at night? Don't you hear the screams of innocent tamil children whom your barbarian government killed. Sri Lanka is built over the graves of thousands of innocent tamils :tsk:

    Probably the same way you slept peacefully at night when LTTE killed so many lankans.

    Just like we see any Paki as a potential terrorist, Lankans might see any tamils as a potential terrorist.

    Put yourself in their shoes, would seem logical.

    I noticed this quote in the article.

    In fact there are enforceable international boundaries at sea.

    If we put ourselves in their shoes, we would come as racist, chauvinistic, snobs who put sand on their heads with their discriminatory policies and then susbsequent rioting and arson that drove the tamilians to pick up arms.

    Also putting myself in their shoes would mean me being a traiterous sob who took help from India and now is honeymooning with China.

    So no thanks.

    Anyway you guys continue the discussion. :)

    India needs to take some action before SL becomes our Cuba. These Sinhalas should know that they are also Indians and what is good for India is good for them.

    Definitely not. I was merely pointing out to perspectives and perceptions.

    For us Indians, all sinhala people might get generalized as murderous maniacs because of the act of a few, similarly, for them all tamils might get generalized as terrorists because of LTTE.

    We humans love to generalize, don't we?

    so comments like this are not really apt:
    "how do you sleep at night? Don't you hear the screams of innocent tamil children"

    Moreover prompt will come the retaliation: "what about the creams of innocent sinhalese children killed by LTTE"

    It's not like SL army kills for fun, its because they believe their actions to righteous. Again, perspectives & perceptions.

    @KS no offence to tamils, I was merely pointing out the other side of the logic.

    I know that's why even though I hate the LTTE, I believe we need to teach these Ravanas a lesson or two on civility.
