I have not done any research on this subject or on this topic; The Painters’ perceptions on Paintings’. I think peoples’ perception on every single thing that exists in this world is what matters most other than anything else. People’s perceptions lead to useful ‘policy making’. People’s perceptions can be used to paint this world in a better way.
Someone says the painter Seraphine, in the movie ‘Seraphine’ , you never told me what made you want to paint?
I do not know whether it is a question that any painter can answer easily, yet often people give answers to please others. Some raise questions or give answers through their paintings, do you believe in that?
I watched certain parts of the documentary made on the life of British painter, Mr.Turner , actually both movies lead me to choose this topic to write this essay. We all know that they, including the painters of every human community known popularly as ‘painters’ are universal resources.
Have you ever thought that you are a Painter?
Did anyone ever tell you that ‘you are a painter’?
For you, who is a painter? According to your own ideas, what are they painting? What is your perception on painters’ purposes of painting?
Do you think or do you see any importance in, an artist trying to redraw of something they have seen or captured or encountered while traveling across globe?
According to what you think what right they are given to do so, by the patent license holder, the universal artist ‘the nature’?
Why people always prefer to see something they have seen before or they are viewing everyday in a different way? Why some prefers to reread what they have seen or viewed earlier where ever in this world on a canvas?
What facets of human mind that it revels or talks about?
I think that it is because human beings always or mostly prefer to see novelty of lives, things around them.
Do you agree or disagree?
What meditating factors that a painting of your choice contained?
How do they find clues or hints to paint other than from travelling or wandering here and there , talking to people, reading something that others have painted other than what they themselves have painted ?
I think a painting is a way of expressing a person’s likes and desires of life?
I think such portray inner strengths of human lives, abilities of concentration
I think they, the paintings are not something private or confidential that others shouldn’t read or hide without letting others to read or view.
Why a person should refrain from doing so, reason is very apparent according to my level of awareness, no human being has the ability to copy paste ones paintings because the copy right certification is written within the painting an artist paint
Do you think that the painters are the ones who portrait life using colors and pencils are the only artists or the painters you can think of not any others?
Why, we, almost every single human being of this world is so fond of paintings, admire or like paintings more than they like or admire anything else?
Are Paintings something that pleases your mind or is it something that the modern world can use as something ‘psychotherapeutic?
How do you like to paint what you see, on what surfaces, on a canvas or on a piece of paper or on something else?
What about books? Do you see any paintings painted by painters through the books you are reading, have read?
How fair is to measure or weigh ones inner sides through the Paintings that people paint or how important it is to use such as a way of expressing human beings’ inner sides of lives?
What do you paint?
I think the painters that do not admire much about adding frills or laces into their paintings but always respect the ‘accuracy of what they are portraying’ provide useful guidance to any student of any subject, history or Geography, or even in science
I think that the painters ho do not wait for any incidents to be happening to recapture or to redesign them on the canvas they are familiar with prefers to travel across history lanes instead, especially if the painter prefers to paint something that way.
Remember painters are of different or unique interests or likes, dislikes
What salvation, we as human beings seek viewing or reading a painting, according to your awareness or according to what you believe?
Have you ever thought that the Great Wall of China is a painting painted not by a singular painter but by a group of painters?
What is the most amazing painting that you have ever come across in your life?
Night or is it Morning, spring or summer?
Isn’t that a stupid question to ask from a painter?
How a mother does paint a fetus in her womb? What colours she chooses for that?
What technique a child uses to paints his / her world of thoughts and how do they present it before others?
Do you think that every others, other than the painter, reads them ( the paintings drawn by them) accurately?
Picasso is a painter, true, but who says that Picasso is a painting?
I like to think that ‘every human being is ‘a painting’ that the world outside to him / her unable to read (properly) or unable to understand the true colours on them?
So these paintings, highly, popularly known as ‘human’, are unique and you find no identical twins of such paintings, if you read them accurately you would learn that, I like to think that way.
Similarly, the colour codes that the painters have used to paint such paintings, ever since they have invented or created them on this earth we live, too are unique and you find different shades of them known as ‘whites, blacks or browns or identified as primary colours or basic colours that creates every other ranges of colour code of this universe.
Taking care of these paintings from natural hazards or from other hazards known to world is the most difficult thing to do. The colours of them do not last in its original form for long. The colours of these, unlike in other paintings you read, fades away and that is something inevitable.
So these paintings called ‘human lives’ are not painted by a singular painter or by couple of painters called parents, because others too add at least a drop of colour into these paintings to enhance these paintings.
Please remember that this world we live is a canvas, what you just need to paint this world is a brush of peace and colours of harmony nothing else and to read it better or to view it accurately to appreciate, every world citizen needs a mind that has no ill wills.

The Protest began at the ‘Lipton roundabout’ and it lead towards the UN office at Baudhhaloka Mawatha, passing the university of Colombo.
I will let you all view some of the moments i captured through the lens of my phone , while reading what i have gathered .......................
The objective of organizing the protest was to oppose the ‘visit and related reasons of Mr. Al Hussain.
The Protest was organized by Mr. Wimal Weerawansa’s Party together with Mr. Udaya Gammanpila.
The Protest was peacefully organized. Many hundreds of people from various parts of the country, including Polonnaruwa participated for the protest.
They were raising many questions not only from the Human Rights commissioner of the UN but also the government supporting that.
They were asking the government whether they don’t feel ashamed of begging and kneeling down before them and to send the war heroes (ranawairuwan) to a war crime court by betraying the Ranawiruwan (the War Heroes) who fought to protect the country.
Further, they asked Mr. Al Hussain to listen to what they were insisting and asked ‘his reasons to represent (going shopping / kade yanne) the LTTE.
|need no international war crime courts here|
|Marching towards the UN office|
|The People were gathered before the UN office|
|Do not take revenge from the Ranawiruwan , Do not want international War Crime Courts|
|Al Hussain is a shameless kuleekaaraya|
The Protest concluded after delivering a speech by Mr. Wimal Weerawansa on behalf of the people gathered and joined the Protest.
Following are from the speech of Mr. Wimal Weerawansa delivered before the UN office. Following is not the whole speech delivered by him.
“He has not set his foot on this country for nothing”.
“He asked to visit this country during President Rajapakse’s period, in the decisive period, a week before winning the war.”
“They did what ever nasty thing they could to stop the war. Failing to do so, to be redivisioned this country united by the heroes, Al Hussain has set his foot on this country to implement a war crime court.”
“We have a court in this country”
“We can hear any cases here, for that, we do not need any courts of whites with white judges, white lawyers, white examiners / supervisors, the courts that give decision the way that the West expects.
"We cannot let them to establish any war crime courts in this country”
“What case they are going to be examined?”
“That is to investigate whether the war heroes have committed any crimes?
“What is the crime that the war heroes have committed, to take them to such courts?
“Only thing that they did was protecting this country by sacrificing their lives. The heroes won the war, widening the eyes of the west, who thought winning it was impossible”
“We do not need such fraud courts in here.”
If you want to investigate any war crimes, you must begin that from your country. Not only that go to Libya, go to Iraq, the powerful of the west, imperialists killing people.
Why cannot you investigate such?
If you want to investigate any human rights violations go to such places
Today, they are here, this is a country won a war.
All three forces, civil forces, police sacrificed their lives to protect this country.
Dear brothers, we say, your ones sacrificed your lives to protect this country. You have done so, not to establish any war crime courts here, 6 years after winning the war.
Wikileaks was arrested. The UN has asked them to release him indicating that the facts against were not accurate, did they listen?
Are the west countries accepting that?
Did you inquire them about it?
the speech continued ..................
The rally , the protest was a peaceful one

Every election is a race. I know every candidate’s desires, aims or targets are to win any election they are candidating. They plan things accordingly.
Other than such races, there is another race known to world, in the world that is to win the crown of the ‘world power’. In the past, what some countries practiced or used as their strategy to win the power of the world was ‘colonization’. Some use another term to describe it that is ‘imperialism’. What difference you can see in these terms, colonization and imperialism? Now, the modern world has given such terms ‘different meanings and shapes. Now no country, other than some communities who think that ‘they cannot build their empires other than capturing the geographical territories of other people, use such strategies to dominate the other parts of the world but some other strategies appearing as a another avatar of old colonization and imperialism. Current world is seeking it giving it various names and descriptions.
If you think of the most used or uttered term of the world, ‘human rights’, some ( replace the term or name you like) use this term to capture or intervene the internal agendas or plans of some countries.
Peace or war, or both, or anything / any situation related to that, have given some countries (use the term or name you like) to enter into the inner zones of administrations or governances. But such things cannot be easily identified or very apparent to others. No matter whether you are peaceful or suffering from any war situations, some have something to say.
It is sad to see how some have forgotten the eras of gone by days, the days of colonization, and the days they spent in their colonies. Name if you can, single country / any country appearing before world, today as ‘whites* in human rights’ that have not committed any sins related to ‘Slave Trading’ or any other issue the world experienced.
(*Please note that here the term white is not used to indicate a colour of any race)
Tell us, who owns the world’s largest weapon manufacturing agencies?
Tell us, how so called terror groups buy or purchase weapons they require?
Who sells them?
Who introduced such things into this world?
Who sold every weapon that was used in WW1 or WW2 or in any other wars?
Tell US, how some countries became rich during ‘WW1 and WW2? Who took advantage from such wars?
Why ‘peace situations’ in any part of this world brings disadvantages to some groups of the world?
I do not know how and who sold weapons to LTTE or to the current group IS? Did they manufacture the weapons they need themselves or do they buy such from any other factory of the world?
I do not know what study the Geneva has done to know such things?
What study or whether the so called genius Channel Four, running behind diplomats or behind government heads interviewing them, thinking that ‘they must agree to the data that they are keeping before the world, has done any study to collate such information?
If so, educate the world on such things, with proven data though not with fabricated stuff.
You know there are some terms and praises, sentences that help some groups for the survival of them. Let me name some of them. Killing fields, human rights violations, crime and punishments, Post War Investigations, ‘Internal investigations cannot be trusted’, external investigations can be trusted, every country needs a Hybrid Judiciary System with outside Judges.
And what is interesting here is that most of these things are not issues for most / any of the people live within but for most outside groups who writes reports on other people’s issues forgetting or neglecting all of their internal issues.
We are not sad about ‘other countries, across globe not coming here seeking help but go to US to solve ‘important issues’ (?), they face.
“When it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow to lead? They Call US” – current President of the United States (Moscow times 29 / 01 / 2016)
I do not know what survey proves what Mr. President says and based on what data records Mr. President says so. I do not know whether Beijing or Moscow or countries of the other parts of the world have shared such information; other countries seeking help or asking said countries to lead, with US, relevant to what Mr. President says.
For our country, what is important here is to ‘live peacefully with no other outside interventions that spoil our (all ethnic groups) day today lives.
There are many things that this world should discuss at huge Summits.
I like to ask, the poor countries, if you are seeking for any financial aids to find some grains for your hunger, PLEASE CONTACT AMERICA, because that is the only country you find no people starve or people who are not experiencing ‘hunger’.
For such issues, can you think of any other country other than America?
And very dear world if you have any matter related to ‘unemployment’ get some advice from America because America is the only country you find the employment rate is ZERO. So for such issues, solutions, can you think of any other country other than America?
And, dear world, if your banks are struggling to survive , please contact America because America is the only country you can think of that State banks are well looked after. Can you think of any American bank faced issues during the governance of Mr. Obama, the current President of United States?
So, world, what other important issues can you think of?
And what are the important issues that Mr. President of United States ‘indicating’ or naming as ‘important issues’, that Beijing or Russia or Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand cannot afford to help or other people do not go to them?
In America, every citizen own a shelter of their own and what ever government needs any assistance or advice with regard to ‘providing shelter for their Nations’, please seek advice from America, because it is an important issue , according to my level of awareness.
And, if you need to know , how you should build the prison systems of your country, please seek advice from America, because every wrong doer is well looked after and no internal harassments or torture you can find within the prisons in the United States, No person have talked about such things before or even now because they are the ‘human rights masters’ who introduced taught the term human rights to this world we live.
You find ‘no child rights issues are questioned or orphanages in America because they handle all social and cultural, economical aspects really well within America, so they have the every qualification to be the ‘best Adviser to such issues’
Am I wrong?
Here is something that I read yesterday that Moscow Times reported,
Both Russia & the US are currently conducting air strikes in Syria. The US is providing surveillance and Training assistance to Syrian opposition fighters, Russia on the other hand, supports the Syrian government & embattled Syrian President Bashar Ashad’.
When Russia is helping the Government side, USA is helping the opposition. I do not know what proves that, for sure there is a reason for that?
There is another thing I like to know. How America finds money for such massive projects, assisting financially or providing other weaponries or anything that the said parties require to win their struggles? Yes, it is true that America is rich compared to Sri Lanka.
I like to know ‘the plans and & the Strategies that the new candidates carry with them?
I am sure when America has no issues internally seeking solutions, what are the things that new candidates should think of attract their people, to earn votes?
I do not know whether the future Presidents of the United States prefer to continue the same policies implemented by the Obama Government in the future plus the procedures already implemented in other zones , countries like Syria or whether they have something genuine or any new world friendly policies to be introduced?
People of America have the sole right to vote their ‘preferred candidate/s’ , we know that but I have something else to ask America with regard to their ‘preferences’ in selecting ‘the leading position of the country’, asking this question, Why America failed to select a
Lady as their President in any year held presidential election?
Do you know America that people of this part of the world have reached that liberalization long ago but why you are so backward in selecting a lady as the President of your country?
Is it because the lady candidates that were competing were not up to your expected standard or is it because the people of America prefer not a lady but a man as their President?
If my memory is accurate, I think in about 1960’s about 37% of American people have agreed on having a Lady as the President in the United States but in 2008 (?) the number agreed to such change has increased up to 92% but chose Mr. Obama as their President.
This is 2016 we can see including Ms. Clinton there are few other Ladies contesting for the Position.
Though I am a fan of American literature and cinema and any other form of arts and crafts, knowledge bases, I am not a fan of any ‘Political personalities of them. Yet, I know that there are things that the others can learn from them.
I do not really admire or happy with some of their policies and some attitudes of them towards the other countries of the other parts of the world very including Asia’.
Me as a person who often like to read America when ever I get a chance like to write that America first and foremost should try to think of removing their tags and labels such as ‘the policeman of the world’. It says a lot about their aims and targets with regard to ‘world political or otherwise power’.
If America says, it is not something that we say or believe, but something that others say or believe, that too is indicating the justification of people of other parts of the world on them.
It is so good if America can play the role of not a ‘dominator but a benefactor’. America shouldn’t think that she can take decisions over what ever matters related to the lives of other peoples in other countries.
I do not know how America introduces America to the other parts of the world Hitler believed that Germany is a fatherland to their people and was not a motherland. I do not know whether it has changed by now or not? Let me assume or write that ‘America is a mother land of American People’. So this motherland I am talking about, couldn’t produce a single Lady President so far in her life time Is that something that the others should applause?
Their policies or what they believe with regard to the security systems, security plans, security methodologies, strategies of other countries, zones, regions, continents, is according to my awareness is not satisfactory.
In this gender aspects are respected world, America must move out off their masculine attitude towards other parts of the world.
I think people must move out of trumphetting or boasting attitudes with regard to their actions and behaviours. I know and have read how America talks about the subjects such as ‘gender equity. But what American people have forgotten or what they have proved to this world so far is that talking is different to acting or reacting. i.e. America doesn’t indicate single name of a female president in their list of presidents of gone by years.
Why American people were unable to vote for a female candidate so far, until a lady winning a seat of ‘the President of the United States? Don’t you feel ashamed of that?
America, have a look at the lists of presidents or lady political leaders of history of this part of the world, Asia or South Asia for example.
Sri Lanka has produced the “world’s first Lady Prime, Mrs. Sirimao Dias Bandaranayake’ to this world.
I say, people of this part of the world are highly liberal or think libertyfully compared to you and have used their votes for the sake of ‘sustainability of ‘democracy’ several times in history while American people just talking about ‘gender equity or gender balance in power or gender balance in economic social or cultural or professional atmosphere.
The people of this part of the world for instance have proved that they are not just talkers but doers.
Example; analyze how the people of this part of the world, have used their votes in the past, to give female leaders a chance to rule or govern their countries. What is the recent example you can think of?
I think it is Nepal, right?
Let me not forget ‘Awun San Sukee’ , she is one of my all time favorite heroines. I do not think that you can think of any lady that has such a tremendous, incredible, unbelievable ‘strength plus confidence’ within to fight against all kinds of terror against her / her people, in order to destroy what ever bars may appear before her. I believe no people could kill her inner strength even though she was imprisoned behind iron bars for a longer period of time.
Women of this part of the world have come to that stage, why not America?
Trumpeting brings no good, America.
I suggest and say ‘Hilarization is better than Trumpeting’ though that may bring no good to this part of the world.
Think well in the forth coming Election America?
