Mahavilachchiya Blogger’s father abducted by LTTE?

Blogger’s father abducted by LTTE?

“Aruni Pradeepika has a post about the abduction of her father – farmer in Mahavilachchiya. Perhaps the first in the Sri Lankan blogosphere. The title “My Father” seems to have gone unnoticed in kottu.org feed. There are no comments on her blog about it (what can one say?). What is not clear from the post is whether it was an attempted abduction or a successful one. [Mahavilachhciya Blog editor’s note: The girl’s father was abducted and he has even shouted that he is being abducted to other farmers.]

Best read her post for the details.”

HOW I GOT A JOB IN MICROIMAGE

Kamal Deshapriya Dissanayake

I am Kamal Deshapriya Dissanayaka. I am 20 years old. I studied at St/ Joseph’s college Anuradhapura. I sat for the AL examination in 2006. I am a commerce student. While I am doing the AL, I had joined with Horizon Lanka. Through Horizon Lanka I could improve my English and computer knowledge well. First of all, I must thank Mr. Nandasiri Wanninayaka. Always he gave valuable advices to me. Actually, I can never forget that. Because of Mr. Nandasiri Wanninayaka I could get an opportunity to work in Microimage.

We had an interview on 22nd May 2007 at Microimage. For this interview seven members came from Horizon Lanka. After the interview, I was selected. I was very happy about that. That is a very special moment in my life. Because of Horizon Lanka now I am working in Microimage. Because of Horizon Lanka a lot of youth in Mahavilachchiya get good computer and English knowledge. I think Horizon Lanka is a real bonus for Mahavilachchiya people. Now everyone knows about importance of Horizon Lanka. Now many Sri Lankans and the world know about this Mahavilachchiya. Actually, I am proud of that.
