RAJA JOHNPULLE

I have not known Rajah as poltician.To me he was a charismatic senior colleague.
We never discussed politics when we met.We had more meaningful things to discuss.He used to be seen at social gatherings in his "kapati kit" (safari suit).
I have had bitter but non violent arguments with him several times.I found him to be matching personality to argue with.At the end we use to break up cheerfully.
Somebody thought the world will be better without him and his wife.
The last time I spoke to him was the day his house was burnt down.I got him over his mobile and told him as to how disturbed I was by the news.He related to me the whole ordeal he went through.
I do miss him.

thanks for sharing ur experiences doc.i first heard about mr.johnpulle was when his house was burnt down.i felt sorry for this man.i was attracted just because of his physical appearance.i thought he is a good innocent man.i think im right.i dont like gen. janaka because of many reasons.but when i was heard he was killed in an explosion i was instinctively worried about mr.johnpulle's life.after all he lost his property then his and his life long companion's lives.that is how the mechanism of destiny works.it gives and it takes.

We as humans are unable to approve any killing of this nature. Be it Janaka Perera or the Lady doctor who was assassinated recently ...

i also dont approve gen janaka's killing.i simply dont like him because of his past human rights violations.and that dosent mean he should be killed.i have a sympathy towards him too.
