"Sri Lankans buy and read newspapers carrying banner headlines reporting the dissolution of parliament in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo, October 11, 2001."
That is what the Reuters wire services caption for this pic said.
However, anybody with half-an-ounce of intelligence would work out that this guy:
A. Is not reading the headlines
B. Is reading page 2 which carries the Marriage Proposals and
C. Is an employee of Reuters/SCN who was paid Rs2500 for posing for this pic.
"Gana num hondai" he said afterwards.
