Biased, Unflattering & Inaccurate Article About “Sri Lanka” In The November 2016 “National Geographic”.
This article was in the November 2016 issue of “National Geographic” (which focuses on travel to Mars). It is on page 108 (and you can read the title in the image above).
I started reading it with much anticipation. However, I did NOT have to get far ….
Intentionally, or otherwise, a very STRONG Tamil-bias comes across.
That is very infuriating, especially from a magazine of the stature and credentials of “National Geographic”.
Those that know me know that I am very much into a multi-ethnic, multi-religious Sri Lanka — as it was in my time. So this slanted coverage just upsets me.
Some factual errors too. You can read that article and come away thinking that there are NO Christians in Sri Lanka — especially in Colombo.
IF you are interested and have skin in the game get a copy, somehow, and read. Then there should be some official comments directed to the magazine.
I found a copy, from “National Geographic” themselves, online!
Yes, I got my tickets last night — thank you. Will be our third time in Cambridge.
We are NOT going to ‘Revels North‘ in Dartmouth (Lebanon/Hanover) this year!
