"People use an alarm clock to wake up in the morning. But we, who are living in the Eastern part of Sri Lanka wake up with shells and bombs. We are quite used to this system. Our fundamental rights are violated. We make noise, but it's not heard anywhere. We have no assurance for our lives, anything can happen to us anytime. People are suffering in various ways. Innocent people are caught in cross fires. We need peace immediately to stop all violence in the country" says Sylvester Kamalraj (15), a student of Mandoor Maha Vidyalayam in Batticaloa
