Our good government become extremely good not because that it has over 40 cabinet ministers which have ministries but not been properly gazetted, it’s because our president’s son recently started an English class through his Facebook page. First of all we should thanks to this young man’s attempt of improving English knowledge among Sri Lankans and we wish he will get many international conferences .Then we can learn at least a single word from each conference which he will be attending.
Mr. Dahama Sirisena explained the word” nepotism “As per his explanation we Sri Lankans are total miss leaded by the meaning of this word. Any way those who did not read Mr .Daham Sirisena’s explanation this is what the oxford dictionary says.
The practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.
Synonyms: favoritism, preferential treatment, the old boy network, looking after one's own, bias, partiality, partisanship
Mid-17th century: from French népotisme, from Italian nepotismo, from nipote ‘nephew’ (with reference to privileges bestowed on the “nephews” of popes, who were in many cases their illegitimate sons).
I agree with Mr Daham Sirisena so far he has not been awarded with a good position in government jobs. When he finished his studies in England he will definitely get a good job considering his qualifications like his uncle.
The other thing is most of Sri Lankan can’t afford sending their children study in England, like our president does. In a way Mr Daham Sirisena you are very lucky. Now you already have attended United Nations conference as well. We, Sri Lankans are not jealousy about your greatest achievements, we are proud about you and your father, when we are seeing that your father, our president is sitting next to Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin at the lunch table we Sri Lankan did not even eat for days, because we lost our hunger.
But meantime you must have asked from UN sectary Ban Ki Moon why did not he invite Mrs. Obama or Mrs. Putin .Al we are aware of that Mr.Modi, the Indian Prime minister is still unmarried. They should have brought their children instead of wives. Of course you missed the company of those children.
It appears to me Mr. Daham Sirisena is only teaching what he thinks appropriate to us. He has simply ignoring the full meaning of the noun. Furthermore he is comparing this is much better than this country with Mr .Rajapaksha. Yes I have to agree, but his father was the man who asked power to end that era. But are you willing to do the same? Please Mr .Daham Sirisena don’t try to justify with this sort of feeble answers.
As young law student Mr Daham Sirisena must have known that famous statement in law education "Not only must Justice be done; it must also be seen to be done."
I think we can rephrase this “"Not only must GOOD GOVERNMENT be done; it must also be SEEN to be done."
Again Mr Daham Sirisena please continue you r English class through Facebook. We are willing to be your students.
But I would like to mention something I have heard from President Abraham Lincoln for your knowledge.it s better if you can also visit Washington D.C and see Lincoln memorial.
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
