Do Sri Lankan speak Hindi?

Sri Lankans — almost 99 percent — do not speak or understand Hindi, although our closest neighbour is India. Complaining about an overdose of Hindi on local television channels, while allowing western cultural imperialism to take root in Sri Lanka smacks of hypocrisy and double standards.

How safe is Sri Lanka for tourists?

Though there are some levels of crime, the same as anywhere, but tourism is an extremely valuable industry for Sri Lanka both at an economic level and at the level of locals living in Sri Lanka. Travellers are treated well and Sri Lanka is a safe place to visit for tourists.
