The magic of selfless giving
In modern society, everyone wants to earn the
same three things - money, a name and the ability to make a
difference. Our actions are dictated by the one we want most. You
can make a name for yourself - become famous - or you can make a lot
of money in complete obscurity.
Freud’s humanitarian legacy
Many modern psychologists have dismissed Sigmund
Freud (1856 - 1939) as an outdated psychoanalyst. Some have even
called him a “male chauvinist pig” or “a liar”. However, Freud’s
humanitarian legacy cannot be set aside so easily. Even today we can
turn to him for inspiration.
Thorns on the Side
A timely call
The recent bus tragedy in Bandarawela where over
120 passengers died after a bus fell into a precipice has prompted
the authorities to examine the root causes of such horrendous
accidents. Although private buses are very frequently involved in
accidents, we rarely come across a case where a Sri Lanka Transport
Board (SLTB) driver is involved in an accident.
