Dinidu de Alwis – Why I liked the Bugger
March 9, 2009
I don’t know him as a journalist. But I do know him as a blogger.
In a thoroughly subjective world, he was objective.
He was a traitor to a nation which was drowning in its own glorified shit.
He was a stupid atheist, when he could’ve taken the easier path of clever and blissful religous ignorance.
As a lotus blossoming out of the mud, the young bugger preferred rational reasoning over grandma’s patriotic tales of Dutugamunu.
It always takes effort to go against the common crowd. It also takes guts to speak out aloud without anonymity. Dinidu was full of both.
