Sometime in the future (specifically February 8, 2024) at a time when
most people are getting ready to call it a day (05:30 pm)
Immediately after this comes another break because who wouldn’t love two ad breaks back to back?
And we promise not all of them will be obnoxiously large and completely out of your interest zone!
You know what’s even better than one or two ad breaks? That’s right!
A trifecta of randomly placed ads!
And here’s the main course folks – our beloved artist and pen wizard from Sri Lanka, Thalangama Jayasinghe has ‘given his pencil a rest’. This granddaddy of newspaper cartoons turned his last page at ripe age of 88.
I hate to sound like Captain Obvious here but just so you know he didn’t dye red at the tender age youngling might recklessly guess with gleam in their eye – He was already an ancient giant flirting with nineties.
After mesmerizing us endlessly with his craftily drawn “Pala Malla” cartoon in local newspapers, Mr. Jayasingh decided he had done enough sketching for this lifetime.
Don’t worry, another ad break will soon interrupt your reading!
And here it is!
We’re committed to not only ensuring you get relevant news but also healthy doses of advertisements because we care.

Oh boy Oh boy there’s some more code stuff down here meant only for bots …. Not botanists mind you !!! They flap around saying something about finding pages and tracking views … Basically internet yard sale or kind garage version of Optimus Prime from Transformers thrown into Spiderman universe… You know multiverse stuff…. Keep scrolling till Tony Stark or Thanos walks by….
And minimum one foothold has been kept open on mankind’s favorite stalk-book aka Facebook.
