Being employed far away from home, I was simply wondering as to what would happen if I couldn’t afford to pay my utility bills. I can’t certainly live without a Ceiling Fan at my temporary residence, my laptop, mobile phone, lighting, ironing and the hot water kettle.
Though someone who knows me could merely brush off the fact of me being worried about such things (not because I’m well off or anything, which I’m not by the way…), it wouldn’t be the same for another. To be honest, not for many middle or lower class families..
Ripping off has been taken into a new dimension by the current gov’t in power, and it is sadly the deserving workforce who’re battling day by day for pure survival who’re being targeted as victims.
Electricity bills have sky rocketed in to the far, far away oblivion..!!!
How do these people who call themselves “representatives of the majority” could go about living on a normal life, when they know for sure that something has really gone wrong in the system which is put there by themselves? One would highly brag about the hospitality of the Sri Lankan lot, who wouldn’t treat to oneself without caring for it’s neighbour or visitor, but doesn’t that apply to these people for some reason?
In a system where Lamborghinis and Jaguars fall out of the sky, and where wild life and sanctuaries are being wiped out in a blink of an eye, you may question whether we all live in the same country and not witness what’s going around apart from our lives.
The truth is that we all are very much aware of what’s being said and done. We’re pretty much like the Indians in that sense. They know what their English accent sounds like, but they’ll never try to change it either. So I could only assume that we’re a leaderless race who can’t step up to fight the insanity which is put there by the very same domestic gov’t.
I’m really tired of talking sense into idiots who live inside a bubble. I’ve got plenty of friends and colleagues who just glide around this carnival & its clowns but fail to see the reality which has sent some of our “pure will to survive” backwards in million of years.
No point in stressing the matter. Given the literacy rate of an average Sri Lankan, I know that this isn’t nonsense and that you can understand what’s being done to this country.
Up to you I guess…Like any of you, why in god’s name should I care…..
