When President Maithripala Sirisena proceeded to attend the Commonwealth Day celebration, he noticed a demonstration by a group of Tamils against him.

Instantly, to everybody’s surprise a smiling President Maithripala alighted from his car and waved at them cheerfully. Speculation was that it was Maithripala’s way of respect for dissent.
