New Year Message from LNW Media Team
Following a tremendous amount of hardships put on the shoulders of the people of Sri Lanka through from one catastrophe to another amidst an economic crisis, the worst of its kind since independence, provoking a political turmoil across the land, we, the citizens of this small island, yet managed to pass another year without letting ourselves submit to inhumanity. This, on all accounts, will be the most important remark that is being written in history books from hereon.
Are we at the liberty to wish for a prosperous New Year which is starting from today, 01.01.2023? Honestly no, at least not without an unconscious mind. The year itself steps out of the crib with astronomically high electricity tariffs imposed on the people, along with a potential hike on the prices of many commodities and service in the near future. It is undeniable that life would be more difficult this year.
Meanwhile, several progressive measures are being taken to address the National Crisis, one that has been contaminating for too long, through a political solution. Are to solve this seemingly unsolvable crisis once and for all, it will undoubtedly be a head start to recover ourselves from the recession.
Signs that 2023 is prone to elections are already on the radar, where Local Government and Provincial Council polls are believed to be held this year, hence many political parties’ engagement towards expanding their campaigns. They too represent the hopes of the people of Sri Lanka, and therefore, it is very important to keep hope about democracy.
Whilst the year 2023 being also predominantly notable for marking the 75th Independence Day of Sri Lanka, it is important to denote that we as a country are suffering the consequences of the very wrong decisions taken by our administration economically, socially and politically in the last 74 years. Nonetheless, we, after all, are human, and are we to understand this pattern running up for more than seven decades, the 75th year will be enough for us to achieve a change.
In the simple goal of understanding that reality, we as the LNW Family wish everyone strength, goodwill and courage to face this New Year. And yes, may we find courage, big time..
