Controversy[edit]

There goes Hornplease again, with his "controversy" jargon. Seems he's got something against Hinduism. I don't see the controversy, I don't see differences between Indian religions. Seems like a bit of POVBakaman%% 22:06, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

You might not, but most people do. WP reflects that view, as you will observe if you read the Buddhism article. Please don't disrupt the encyclopaedia repeatedly like this. Hornplease 01:52, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

I have details of a book about the assassination and the subsequest court case. I am prepared to list details, which may present a different slant if anyone is interested TonyDodson (talk) 17:08, 19 November 2007 (UTC).

Fair use rationale for Image:Swrd bandaranaike.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Swrd bandaranaike.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Was he named[edit]

after West Ridgeway, who was, I think, governor of Ceylon at the time of his birth? Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 01:15, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Good question. I don't know the answer but suspect he was. The Sri Lankan elite (Senanayake, Bandaranaike-Ratwatte, Wijewardena-Jayewardene, Rajapaksa) liked to ape their colonial masters so that they would be rewarded with money and power. They dressed like Europeans, had their education in Europe, converted to Christianity and spoke only in English. It wouldn't be surprising if they also took on their masters' names.--obi2canibetalk contr 13:04, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps I will just add it, though it would be nice to find an external source. Still, time to be BOLD. Carptrash (talk) 17:28, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

I am looking[edit]

at the picture labeled "The first Cabinet of Ministers of Ceylon" and am wondering if SWRDB can be identified in it? If "yes" then he should be, if "no" , then why is the picture there? Carptrash (talk) 16:33, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
