I listened to today’s Cowdrey Lecture by Kumar Sangakkara delivered at Lord’s Cricket Ground. I can’t help but admit that I was very moved listening to it.
I used to have reservations about him, but the content of his speech gives a strong indication of how much his attitudes are underpinned by a resolute ideological awareness.
It is indeed a must listen for all Sri Lankans. I am usually not the type to post the rubbish pro-govt types put up and say ‘for all Sri lankans’. But listen to his speech here first and judge if I was right to say ‘for all Sri Lankans’.
The Guardian too has put up a piece on his speech here.
