(Lanka-e-News - 26.July.2017, 7.15PM) Thilak Ranaviraja , the Sri Lanka (SL) Ambassador to France who boasts and brags at every turn that he has been in government service for the last 40 years and held various posts in the government service , recently demonstrated clearly despite all his braggadocios that he does not even know to hoist or unfurl the national flag of the country unerringly !
That is , at a function in which he was the chief guest at his office of ambassador , he unfurled the flag using the posterior (tail) side of the Lion on the flag (photo depicts and confirms) .
Perhaps Ranaviraja still respects his own ancestral tail he got from the monkeys in the jungles more than his own onerous human duties as a SL ambassador in France .
What was disgraceful and vilifying to the country more than Ranaviraja’s tail (rather Lion’s tail display by him) was , the presence of a group of bhikkhus in that midst who pretended not to notice this glaring blunder thereby making a display of their own abysmal unconcern for the damage caused to country’s image. The irony of ironies is these are the very counterfeit monks who boast , pose and parade as most concerned about giving a true Buddhist and cultural character to the country’s administration !
May Lord Buddha give us the strength and spirit at least to save the fragrance of the saffron robe even if we cannot those draped in it !
