    Following the election of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Dinesh Gunawardena said both "Rauff Hakeem and Rishad Bathiudeen will not be part of the new government." This was repeated by both Wimal Weerawansa and Udaya Gammanpila.


    The Muslim community is not concerned whether the government gives Rauf Hakeem and Rishard Badurdeen ministerial portfolios or not. What the Muslims need is for the new government to understand their plight, stop violence against them, and attend to their grievances.


    Time was when the Sri Lankan Muslim community was not interested in forming a separate party. As everyone knows, the Muslims were part and parcel of the two major national...

Not Everyone is What They Post to be

 

If you’re not careful, you’ll be fooled to think perfection exists.

From perfect flawless selfies to wow holiday destinations….social media has people selectively glorifying their lives.. Posting their best food, clothes and moments to create the perception of an ideal life…

Behind the scenes however, reality chronicles a very different picture.

From holiday destinations to food, fun and laughter, don’t be bamboozled to believe everything you see and read.


A depressed person will post the funniest jokes and quotes to block off their own woeful emotions.

Spiritual posts don’t always come from the pious, perhaps they too are trying to find a connection with their Creator.

A shy introvert can own the social media world from the privacy of their bedrooms. Cloaked by the safety of their remote internet connection they can woo their followers. Their sharp wit and awesome posts will have you hungering for their company and you will be forgiven to believe your own life is just too dull in comparison.

That woman you’re so jealous of used filters and chose her best angle. Basically she’s as beautiful and as ordinary as you. You go back to your mirror and begin to judge and criticize your reflection. You focus on your “flaws” and soon you feel frumpy and unattractive.

You begin to question your unmarried status or your spouses love as it pales in comparison to the loved up posts you see filling your newsfeeds. You are hoodwinked by the “romance” and fall to the floor in despair. Your love life is doomed.
But how often do these very people post about their fights, arguments and irritations with these spouses/partners?

 

These posts only showcase the glorified side of life. You won’t see them with their mismatched pj’s while they laze on their couches.

The off days where she almost scratched out her partners eyeballs because he fell asleep on the couch watching soccer will never make it to the news feeds.

That selfie that showed the dark shadows under her eyes were deleted. You only saw the cover girl pic with the make up on point.

Human nature will have you envying almost everything and anything but its your common sense that should actually save you from being completely distracted from the reality of life.

The perfect life simply does not exist.

Be happy for your “friends” that have seemingly awesome lives but don’t question your own stupendous life.

 

Remember, life is what you make of it. So, if you’re unhappy about your own dull life, what are you doing about it?

Ask yourself if you’re taking pics, going out and having “fun” to post, entertain and add to the facade of social media or are you really living an exciting life simply because you really want to have fun.

Not all those that post fun pics are really having fun and those that don’t post aren’t leading dull lives.

Its social media. It’s all about camera, lighting and action. Don’t believe it all.

Not everyone is what they post to be.

Strip away the contact list. Log off, stay home and wait…. Those that come looking for you are your real friends!!!
