Penlight batteries which were earlier a prohibited item in Jaffna are now freely available there. A boy is seen here selling batteries on a pavement in the City of Jaffna Pic by Daminda Harsha Perera.

A charming picture to show that all's well in the old Republic!
We at SCN are not sure why we are fighting to preserve our culture.

We seem to have lost our culture as judged by the new national dress of Jaffna: Baseball caps!
Keen eyed readers would note that the batteries are guaranteed by the New Zealand Dairy Board!

Meanwhile an idiot minister by the name of Mahroof is alleviating the water shortage in Yalpanam by the simple expedient of laying a foundation stone.
Our Tamil bretheren are very clever, hardworking and shrewd business people and can extract almost anything from anything but to extract water out of a foundation stone?....(Thanks to Kumaran of Singapore for spotting this story.
See Vol 34{short description of image} for details of this story - Ed)
The Ed wishes to convey his thanks to Kumaran of Singapore and Ariyanayagam of England for teaching him Tamil swear words.
