If the rally held in Nugegoda on 18th Feb was historic in many terms as I pointed out in one of my previous posts, the one which is to happen on 06th March 2015 too has differently unique historical value. This is, however, due to very location that it is held. The former rally had more of a ground breaking quality primarily due to the massive crowed that thronged there while the latter marks a coincidence of an event that made a revolutionarily catastrophic and tragic impact to the country and its people.
It was exactly 200 years ago we Sinhalese Buddhists lost our sovereignty to the British Colonists when our last king was captured in Kandy. Exactly 200 years later we are again going to lose our sovereignty to the Western Imperialists. 200 years before it was the local cronies of the colonists who betrayed us which paved the way for the White Christian Colonists to subjugate us. Again two hundred years later it is the local cronies of the very same White Christian Colonists who are going to sell our country to their masters. It is ironical that we are going to have again a historical moment while marching towards again to defend our sovereignty in the historical city of Kandy which was sadly, 200 years earlier, the venue for the beginning of the end of our sovereignty for almost one and half centuries. Though some 67 years earlier the Western Imperialists left our soil physically, their local cronies faithfully continue to serve their masters. So we have never been able to be fully sovereign even in last 67 years of which dawn of 2015 marks victorious to the White Christian Colonists and their lackeys here.
