What Colombo can Learn from Bangkok
An article in the Daily Mirror of 22 April reports a call from the National Sangha Council that asks that Colombo not be made a Chicago or a Bangkok. It is a protest against the casino bill that will be presented to the Sri Lankan parliament this week. I don’t know about Chicago, but I am right now in Bangkok, and I marvel, as I have always done, how Thai people practise their religion, Buddhism, alongside their highly consumerist life style, with little pretense or hypocrisy.
