Due to the bad economic-political policies of the Sri Lankan government and the impact of Corona, the condition of Sri Lanka’s economy continued to deteriorate. The situation had become such that people were not getting even the basic necessities of their need. For example, there was no milk for the children to drink, there was no petrol left in the vehicles of the passers-by, jobs were lost, and the people of Sri Lanka were fed up with grain.
Last Way: Revolt Against the Government
When the public had no hope of helping the government, the people themselves came out on the road to teach a lesson to the government. It is often seen that such revolutions lose their way after a short time. Some people in the crowd turn violent. This gives the government an excuse to take coercive action.
New weapon of public protest
But the people of Sri Lanka turned out to be sensible in this matter. The people chose a peaceful method of rebellion. For example, when Sri Lankans entered Rashtrapati Bhavan too, they did not vandalize there. They went there and posed for photos, sang songs and danced together with each other.
Even in such a bad environment, this method chosen by the public to protest is like an example to the people of the rest of the nation. In the neighborhood of Sri Lanka, there is a great example like Gandhiji, who did Satyagraha through the path of peace and non-violence. The people of Sri Lanka have kept alive the same tradition of Gandhiji even today.
However, the intensity of opposition from the Sri Lankans was certainly strong. This was the reason that the President there had to leave Rashtrapati Bhavan and flee to another country. At a time when public property is vandalized in protests, dharnas and demonstrations. Then the example of Sri Lanka is Manikhej in this context.
Sri Lanka and India
India supported Sri Lanka a lot in this difficult time. India gave assistance of about $ 3.8 billion to Sri Lankans. It was only because of India’s help that Sri Lanka was slowly coming out of this formidable crisis. Now Sri Lanka should also learn from India’s great democratic tradition. Yes! It is certainly that this help of India has intensified the feeling of great love for India in the hearts of Sri Lankans. The non-availability of any kind of help by China in these situations of Sri Lanka exposes China’s economic moneylender policies, while India’s standing shoulder to shoulder with Sri Lanka in these situations also shows India’s Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam tradition.
