Plus - Letter to the editor

Hear the voice of our dead heroes

We have died for you
To save the land for you;
We are happy to see monuments
Carved with our names;
We have died for you
To save Mother Lanka,
For you to sit and stand,
To play and dance;
We have died for you.
Treat us as heroes,
Never look down upon us
As your paid fighters.
We have died for you.
Remember us by lighting a lamp
And looking after our families.
This would be better than tears.

Malini Hettige
