Today, while I was at the bank retrieving some money, a Sinhalese (most probably cashing in money for her employer who’s too lazy to come and retrieve the money him/her self) was asked by the cashier if she knew how to sign. The Sinhalese nodded gently and signed.
Beyond all racist consideration this entails will this guy ever know how beautiful and complex is the Sinhalese written language? Will he know how far back in history dates these fascinating forms of expression? No. That the price you have to pay when you’re self-centered. The price of ignorance.
مثل المؤمن كمثل الخامة من الزرع تفيئها الريح تصرعها مرة وتعدلها أخرى حتى تهيج ، ومثل الكافر كمثل الأرزة المجذبة على أصلها لا يفيئها شيء حتى يكون انجعافها مرة واحدة
