Our civilization is built upon the basic principles of humanity. Compassion teaches us to share, Equality teaches us to be open and Curiosity urges us to discover opportunities. The first civilizations were created on the banks of great rivers and as human beings our compassion supported us to live hand in hand with Mother Nature for survival. Equality taught us that we are all the same and should support each other. Curiosity drove us to be greater and better. The very foundations of our human...

On the edge of the world Lies a beautiful girlShe looks near and farWaiting to find solace Her eyes sparkle like a sapphire Blue glistening reflectionEagerly searching For answers Lips as red as rose Reading out a messageTo be sent up and aboveFor the lords to hear“Oh almighty”, she mumbled The hands held tightly On her knees she wasShe began her PrayerRiches was not her requestIt did not entail glamour It was never for mansions A Rolls-Royce did not even make it close Tears rolled downShe remem...

She never feared it. Every day she woke up to it. Every new day was greeted by the smell. Every time she stepped out, she could only see the dump. It was almost 300 feet tall. For years, it kept growing. Tons of garbage piled up. The “Meethotamulla” garbage dump, a name unheard of for most even in the city, was a problem not considered important- an issue all politicos turned their heads away from. It smelled so bad no one would chose to travel on those roads. The landfill brought in so many fl...

He could hear the whispers of the sea, the gentle murmur of the tides as it hit the sands of the beach. The rustling sounds of the coconut groves made him feel at home. The screams of the boys wrestling each other on the beach took him back to his childhood. He could remember the days when the only problems he had to ponder upon was an excuse to tell his teacher for not doing any homework and the only responsibility he had was to secure the rusted hook his father gave him. He wished he could fly...

I am a morning person. It is a rare breed in my part of the world. Yet, I feel stronger and more empowered in the mornings. It allows me to brush aside the sad realities of yesterday. It gives me the ability to move on with a fresh thought. It provides the freedom for me to see the best in the world.Today, something did not feel right. The morning did not have its freshness. Despite this strange feeling, I was not prepared for what was about come. I had a casual run through my Facebook feed and...

It may be through books, it may be through people, it may be from nature. Learning can arise from anything. Yet, in the modern human civilization, the learning process features the strong establis...

“Amma shall we go now?” the voice of her 12 year old son brought Kamalawathi back to the real world. She was gazing into what used to be the “Monerathenna” tank. Since her childhood, this small tank powered the lives of the people in her village. Sewanagala, a small town located in the dry zone of Sri Lanka, is constantly known for its battles with water. Nevertheless, Monerathenna ensured that they had enough water for two seasons of paddy harvest and for the daily activities thro...
