 Expatriates and Sinhala Culture

During Ranasingha Premadasa's Executive Presidency, the Sri Lankan expatriate community in the UK had grown excessively due to an exodus of 'genuine' and 'economic' refugees followed by the devastating situations that existed during 1971, 1987 and 1989 with the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) insurgency, along with the Black July (Kaṟuppu Yúlai) against the anti-Tamil campaign in 1983.

There are some negative Health Effects of Fast Food so you need to be careful

There are some negative Health Effects of Fast Food so you need to be careful

Dr Hector Perera       London

Takeaways are often cheap, convenient and satisfying but, unfortunately, they're not always very healthy. Some takeaway meals can push you over your recommended daily maximum amount of salt and fat, which can lead to a variety of health problems, such as heart disease and diabetes. Takeaway food are plenty but which one to choose?

 A meal cooked and bought at a shop or restaurant but taken somewhere else, often home, to be eaten, or the shop or restaurant itself. A lot of takeaway food is perfectly safe for people with coeliac. However, you do need to be careful what you order and be aware of the risk of cross contamination in some takeaway restaurants. Britain will spend almost £8bn a year on takeaways by the end of the decade as a surge in smartphone usage and time-pressed households cooking fewer meals boosts the country’s predilection for takeaway food.

Expenditure on pizza, curry and Chinese food is expected to grow by 28% during this decade to £7.6bn a year according to figures from Euromonitor International. Forget hunting around for paper menus. There are plenty of instantly access a wide array of local favourites, whether you’re after Brighton’s best fish & chips or a full English breakfast in Liverpool. Browse peer-reviewed takeaway menus and filter by opening times, accepted payment methods, deals and discounts. With online payment and convenient re-ordering. Some on line takeaway even got you covered for a wine or beer to go with it. I think even in Sri Lanka, mainly in Colombo city area there are plenty of home delivering takeaways. No wonder some housewives are not bothered to cook at home. Whether they are healthy and clean is your choice, food on the table in no time. Why bother in smoky, dusty and hot kitchens, just pick up the phone then meals come on wheels as fast as they could, what a change!

Athula Withanage - The Living Capsule

Mother Lanka has given birth to many prodigies and given them a free education to prop them up to excel in wider fields, particularly in medicine. However, there were and are many students who are still unable to gain admission to universities to outshine in their chosen fields due to restrictions in our education system. Amidst such a dilemma, continuous protests, arguments and threatened strikes are seen and heard against the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) , which is a private seat of learning, especially in the field of medicine, linked to Neville Fernando Russian Friendship Teaching Hospital in Malabe.
