This explains the continued existence of The Peking Hotel

The Chinese family believed to be descendants of King Parakramabahu VI arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport early yesterday. Pictured from left are Shih Chih Chua ( daughter), Prince Shih Lai Fa , Shih Chia Hua (daughter) Shih Chia Hsu (son) and wife Shih Hsiao Kuan. It is believed that the king had sent his son Ba Lai Na as an envoy to China, where he settled down there after marrying a Chinese girl of Persian origin. The title 'Shih' in their names means 'Sinhala' in Chinese. Pic. By Nihal Fernando

SCN comment: This is one of the far-fetched and really way out stories that we have come across on the SriLankan media and even beats the "Ranil is God" story! As such a word of assurance is required. We assure you our readers that this pic and the above caption actually appeared on the electronic Daily Mirror as well as on the Daily Noise. Do check their archives if you don't believe us.
The speech balloons are ours of course.....
THE SCN SAYS:
Werrcome to Sli Ranka Your Majesty. It is at a time rike this that we need our King back. King Lanil is no good, Queen Chandlika is no good and the King of Eeram goes Chop Chop (or rather, Bang! Bang!)
We certainly can see the family resemblance. You have got old Palaklamabahu's nose...and the stone face!
Hold a Puss Kola Potha and stand on the banks of Palaklama Samudhla and evelyone will acknowledge you as our King. We ourselves are descended from King Sri Wicklama Lajasinghe (thats what the late old eccentric maternal Granny used to say!... he was the last king of SL who incidentally was a South Indian.)
So a double welcome.
Lissen mate! If all fails you can open a Chinese Takeaway at GasPaha Handiya...

We have slightly distorted the history of Sri Lanka and know very well that there were several Parakramabahus....Don't write!
