We like to be like the bee

The bee draws nectar off a flower without harming either its color or its fragrance, and ensures the survival of genetic strains by facilitating cross-pollination. A wise man once observed “The sky does not become less private although it belongs to everyone else”. In other words, our individuality is not necessarily disturbed by our sensitivity to and identification with the collective. The bee, we should not forget is an insect that knows “community”. This is why, when the ancients tell us to follow the example of the bee, they are in fact advising us that gentleness along will not save us, or our earth. We firmly believe that it is the tenderness of solidarity deeply rooted untraditional wisdom, which empowers better and beneficial engagement. This way, we believe, leads to a full flowering of gentleness on the earth, in her waters and her skies.

“How does one hate a country, or love one? Tibe talks about it; I lack the trick of it. I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary...

Is Sri Lanka actually facing a food crisis?

To hear the pundits and the weighers-in on the matter, we surely do. There is only one problem here. These are armchair detectives sitting in plush Colombo offices that crunch selectively polled numbers to say “Oh my god, we are gonna starve to death in three months because we have no money to import the things we need to import...
