We Sri Lankan today have come to a significant phase of time. All Sri Lankan are dreaming about a Freedom. Throughout last 30 years we had to face lot of setbacks and debacle because of this ruthless LTTE terrorism. Today every thing has changed and the South Asian longest running war is going to end forever. Also the World most dangerous terrorist Organization LTTE is going to wipe out from the Earth.
Sri Lanka has gained independent from British in 1948.Since then Sri Lanka has come along a significant Journey. But the smooth journey has stagnant in 1983 when LTTE has declared a separate land and struggle with Government troops. Since then all Sri Lankan despite race, religion and cast has to suffered lot. But this year it will be over.
Sri Lanka is celebrating its 61st Independence Day anniversary 4th of February 2009.
Independence Day ceremonies will be held at Galle Face in Colombo under the supervision and presence of His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksha. The military parades will feature the Armed Forces with the Air Force putting on a spectacular air shot. The Navy, Police and school children will also participate at the occasion. The Maha Sangha, and other religious leaders with Ministers and other Government officials will participate at the grant ceremony. Heads of the Armed Forces and foreign diplomats will also be present. These day’s rehearsals are conducting Galle Face Green Colombo. Securities are tightned in the area and bring thousands of Policemen and Armed Forces to Colombo Capital.
Sri Lankan troops are now very close to LTTE sea Tigers camp at Chalai and last Village Puthukkudiyiruppu.Most probably those villages will fall on National Day(4th February).
Last year 4th February, series of explosions carried out by LTTE Island wide to disturb the independent ceremony and destabilize the country.Fort Rail way station,Buttala and Welioya were the locations killing atleast 40 civilions.
Hence this time there is possibility such a bomb blasts and VIP attacks.LTTE planes are still not captured & threat is there. Public vigilant can prevent such an attacks. Last year even government has to block SMS few hours as a security measure.
Meanwhile to commemorate the National Day Government of Sri Lanka has taken steps, to hold the third 'Deyata Kirula' exhibition at the BMICH from February, 4 to 8 under the theme of "Eka Mawakage Daru Kela". It will be held 9 am to 12 midnight everyday.
