The latest scientific evidence shared by Discovery channel two days ago shows that Ram-Sethu bridge was a man made structure that had been built around 7000 years ago.
This opens up the subject afresh and I share some thoughts I expressed about historical Ravana a few years ago.
Sri Lanka is at a point of transition. The resultant collective consciousness will provide an ideal platform to critically re-examine certain historical and cultural assumptions carried over the years and a willingness to open to a paradigm shift in thinking. It is natural when critical scholarship progresses, new names, places, and traditions will emerge challenging hitherto accepted views. This is an inevitable aspect of growth and progress if we embrace them with a spirit of humility and transcend the barriers of petty partisan polemics.
