Four thousand hungry children leave us per hour from starvation
While billions are spent on bombs creating death showers
The lines are from the song ‘Boom‘ by System of a Down. They were the lyrics that came to my mind when I heard today about the multi-million dollar nuke submarine that was being  imported to India from Russia and the whole multi-billion dollar submarine deal. India is home to many billionaires, but it’s also a country with billions of people below the poverty line. For how many days could the Indian government have fed those mouths if they hadn’t wasted the money on the stupid subs? Think of all the money they spend trying to win a piece of land in Kashmir. And to show the rest of the world that they’re a super power.
Why, India, why?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind.

    ආහාර මිල පහත වැටෙන එක නවත්තගන්න ධනවත් රටවල් වසරකට කොච්චර නම් ආහාර තොග විනාශ කරනවද.. ඒ විනාශ කරන ටිකෙන් කන්න නැතුව මැරෙන ජීවිත කීයක් නම් රැකගන්න තිබ්බද…..

      ලෝකෙ හැමතැනම වෙන්නෙ මේක තමයි. තියෙන මිනිස්සුන්ට මදි නොකියන්න තියෙනවා, නැති අයට ඇත්තෙම නෑ.
