Indi-The Leader

It appears to me that Indi is taking over the Leader newspaper.

First he had one article...... I liked it

Then the KOTTU supplement.... Got hooked to blogs after reading it. Some posts were better than the articles in the main paper.

Then Indi started putting his own posts in Kottu supplement...... To me Kottu is an introduction
to various blogs. We already know

Then Indi's father's articles........ I like these.

Last Sunday an article by Indi's mother appeared.....

So last sunday's Leader paper had
1. Indi's article
2. His father's article
3. His mother's article
4. Two posts by Indi in Kottu

So I wonder about the future Leader... Will there be only articles by Indi, parents, sisters,
aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends of Indi?

Is Indi only trying to help the Leader because other are not brave enough to write for it? Is the paper in a desperate state? Has Indi got some power at the Leader? There are these stories about NGO money. I didn't believe these but now I wonder....

Whatever the reason c'est un peu bizarre, non?


  1. Mr Apoi,

    This is Rohan Samarajiva. I have been writing and speaking in Sri Lankan media for decades, long before Indi Samarajiva came on the scene.

    My wife is a public figure in her own right. There is no reason for anyone to get our activities entangled with those of our son, Indi Samarajiva.

    I consider it a compliment to be described as Indi's father, but really, is it too much to ask that we be treated as the independent actors we are?

  2. ha ha

    Soon the paper will change its name to the Kottu leader, Indi Leader or something


  3. Thoththa babage kottu koolama :-)

  4. LOL
    Indi has become the epitome of a classical nepotist.

    He seems to be following the example of the Rajapakses' and adopting the policies of the first family.

    And since he constantly criticizes the President Indi seems to be a HYPOCRITE in addition to a NEPOTIST.
