Mullaitivu Victory and Fireworks

Ohh yeah, at last I hear the good news I was waiting for. Mullaitivu town captured! [http://www.dailymirror.lk/DM_BLOG/Sections/frmNewsDetailView.aspx?ARTID=38699]

As soon the news telecast began on ITN, people everywhere began having their stupid fun with fireworks. Ohh those fools! Probably they might feel that civil war is just another cricket match, is it? They don't seem to have any sense of values of our warriors' lives. They just, "We won! Let's party!!".

How poor our people are.. How much do they spend (actually waste) on fireworks? And our stupid TV media, (I watched it in ITN few minutes ago) they promote those stupid fireworks stuff.

Well, now it's our duty to look after our heroes. A small packet of crackers costs about 60 LKR (larger one is 120 I think). I mean why those people can't collect the money they spend on those fireworks and donate "Api Wenuwen Api" Housing Project with gratitude?

People have become very very selfish, not understanding what should and what should not be done.

@Acromantula,

Yes, we should celebrate. But not with those stupid fireworks. A musical event is a good choice to celebrate this marvellous moment.

Well, this can't be compared to a cricket match. Think about our warriors who get injured and permanently disabled in these battles. Think about how many lives they have sacrificed to reach this remarkable moment.

We must take care of our warriors. People should not waste money on silly things.

This isnt just the citizen's work. When I was coming home from uni on the day of the Kilinochchi Capture there were HUGE lines of firecrackers lined up by the road by the townhall and around the roundabout too. That's a LOT of Firecrackers. And by that time there wasn't any news of the Kilinochchi capture broadcasted on any channel. As soon as the news broadcast announced the Kilinochchi capture everything started to explode. I leave you to figure out whose behind this firecracker mania. :D
