I snapped this photo of a poster with a death threat while going though an old Colombo short cut. Its inclusively in three languages. The cause of these threats is the dumping of garbage on vacant property or public places. It tends to happen a lot on small private roads. When I used to take this short cut to work some years back, this particular stretch of wall was the backdrop of a stinking mound of garbage/trash. Now there isn’t a single stinking fly swirled polythene bag in sight. I’m not fan of death threats but must reluctantly admit that in this case, the method seems to be working.
The death threat seems to be only in the English version (not sure if death mentioned in the Tamil version). The Sinhala version makes a reference to a phrase that can be crudely translated as “7 strikes of lightening” (Hena hathak) which I’m sure is quite fatal 😉
Seem anything this extreme in your neck of the woods?
