Sri Lanka, internationally known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, is currently in crisis. The poor management of those in power had plunged the entire nation into (literally) dark times. Island-wide power cuts, often mile-long queues for basic commodities like fuel, gas and even milk powder, not to mention the soaring prices of other everyday food items, have made life extremely difficult for the common Sri Lankan. However, in the midst of all this chaos, something new and beautiful has emerged; all around our paradise isle, people are standing against the wrong that has been done, with a sense of unity and camaraderie that is breath-taking to behold. Irrespective of race, religion or socio-economic status, the citizens of Sri Lanka have joined hands in order to speak up for their rights, while maintaining astonishing levels of peace and orderliness.
