For I’m weary wi’ hunting, and fain wald lie down”

I sat for advanced level exam in 2008. My subjects are Sinhala, Political Science and Buddhist civilization. I had three Bs for these subjects. But I can’t go to university this year. I am sad about it. But it is not my tault. It is the government’s problems. A lot of students can’t enter too university in Sri Lanka though they. Obtain the right marks due to high compitition in universities. Government should take actions for more space for the students who pass the university entrance exam. Though I was turned down. I never stopped my target. I am doing a/L exam again in 2009. And. I will try to go to university. Horizon Lanka Academy helps a lot for my education. Now, I am learning computers and English at HLA.

යථාර්තය

මරණය ස්වාභාවික
වර්ෂාවක් වැනිය
මේ වර්ෂාපතනයට
අපි බිය නොවෙමු
එහෙත්………..
ඉක්බිතිව පායා එන
දේදුන්නට ලොල් කරමු
නමුත්…….
වර්ෂාව විනා
දේදුන්න නොවේ….
යථාර්තය
මරණය විනා
ජීවිතය නොවේ………..
