Youngest MP gets Guinness Book mention! WORLD EXCLUSIVE!
CHILDREN FIRST: Little Kashuri Lakshani of a nearby pre school was pleasantly surprised last Sunday in Kirulapona when the great Amathi Thumaa who was Chief Guest stepped aside and smilingly asked her to do the honours. Economic Reform, Science & Technology Minister Milinda Moragoda was the Chief Guest willing to be sidelined at a ceremony to declare open the Gajaba Road Childrens park, on Robert Gunawardena Mawatha.

Sri lankans are good at getting into the Guiness Book of Compact Discs and are also well and truly into Politics...from a tender age.
The first word that most babies speak is "Manthree Thuma" (or "Paraya", which is the same thing anyway!).
With all this and the rapid proliferation of the number of ministries it had to happen!
This is young Her Hon.Kashuri Lakshani, the Minister of Childrens Affairs.
She doesn't want to be addressed in the traditional fashion as "Amathi Thuma" but likes to be addressed as "Baba".
