Skill upgrading demands during pandemic time

Skill upgrading is a desire to grow, but it is not the solution to reduce unemployment.  During Pandemic, it is not easy for people to learn new skills or additional skills to get the job for survival. 

To fight with unemployment, institutions and authorities need to upgrade themselves to utilize available skills in different areas. Many computer operators are available and looking for jobs and there are several areas where computers…

Post Pandemic:- Metamorphosis or transformation?

Metamorphosis and transformation both indicate changes.  One of the major difference I feel is, in metamorphosis, situation can’t be reversed . If a caterpillar changed in to the butterfly, can’t go back in pupa stage or Larvae  stage.  Butterfly needs to learn flying instead of relearning crawling like larvae. 

After Pandemic, situation is changed a lot for many people who can’t go back into the situation as it was before pandemic.…

The Skulduggery of pro-management "'workers' unions"

Respecting dignity of persons with disability

A friend recently shared an article published in an online edition of an English medium national newspaper. The article was well intentioned, and spoke about the weakness of non-compliance to universal accessibility regulations in Sri Lanka’s infrastructure and public spaces, and which results in marginalizing a significant minority in our society – who the writer references as the less abled.

This prejudiced use of terminology vexed me, and reminded me of the varying occasions where…

It highlights the importance of education, the critical role of health providers in upholding and affirming the bodily autonomy of those seeking information and care, social norms, and the…

Do not brand me, do not command me

Mother, sister, or wife, I need not be

Fie on you! Do not try to define me!

When you define me, you confine me

I am me, just me.

Do not ever limit my thought

Do not tell me what I am not

If I am selfish, I do not hold monopoly

If I am moody, see it not as some folly

I am me, just me.

Stop the labels, enough with the stereotype

Look deep in the mirror, I hold no gripe

The burden of compassion, the burden…

International Women's Day 2021

I get tired and then I get up too .

I smile and I frown too

I work and I laze too

I sleep and I get up early too

I dream and I am realistic too

I complaint and be complacent too

I compliment and I want appreciation too.

Yes I am all this and all that more

But I don't want to be celebrated on only one day anymore

I believe in rights

And call upon you to say it out loud too

Equality, Dignity, Freedom is how we wish

Happy International…

The SALT Approach: Towards Collective Ownership

“Collective action remains the best way of renewing the march towards the great trinity of liberty, equality, and solidarity.”

-Guy Standing

The SALT approach is a mental attitudinal technique applied for the participatory evaluation process which helps in defining the collective consciousness for the necessary collective action.
