The competitiveness is blunted by both.
History gives people to wallow in the past glory than do what is needed to be done today, so they will have a better future tomorrow.
Religion gives people hope of a better future tomorrow, thus making them less inclining to do something today to make tomorrow a better one.

Okay look at it this way.

What make a personal moral, ethical and culturalable learned not to be mention patriotic ( in a balanced way) ?

1)Family
2) Friends one associate
3) Peers
4) A balanced/open mind and Personal strength to stand for justice
5) education


Do not forget

1) one who does not know or forgets history ( no napoleon) can forget everything.
Today is tomorrow history. If one forgets history everything can be twisted saying I don't remember.

2) Religion instills some morals and insights . If someone falls into bad 1) 2) 3) 4) above
what happens to that person? Atleast religion ( I still believe all pure religions of the world teaches
good . Am not talking about extremists with twsited minds) taught at school will inculcates some good stories
from past to think about

We do not want to see future generations more ignorant about their past than it is now.
If so in 50 years the generation will not know Sri lanka was invaded by British even.
Buddha, Christ, Prophet Mohamed existed even.

What kind of people will they become?

No opinion but mention the incident bellow.

I happened to visit DC; US sometime ago. One day this 'shrewd businessman' suggested me go and visit a 'very special' place.
So we went in his Oldsmobile.

It was an old building ,a church.

He said proudly that was the countries first brick building. According to his idea, there wasn't something like that in the whole world.
I asked him how old that was.
He said, it was as old as their history; 300 years!

And then, quite incidentally, he asked how old our country's history was.
..............................

Another thing he mentioned. In order to be an adult (to get their driving license and register as a citizen), everyone needs to answer a question paper which includes specific questions on history.

I can very directly relate to this.

During my undergrad , I was taken on a filed trip to 19th century mission in USA .
They proudly talked about it. They said it is 200+ year old and amazing piece of history.

To be not snobbish I kept silent.
But I did tell few of my colleagues that my native history was 2500 old and we have relics which are well over 1000 year old.

ps : Look on the bright side from Americans also. To the Americans 200 year old building is a wow.
That also means they are patriotic with whatever they pocessed, even 200 year old building,

Okay lets not talk about USA foreign policies, but I can say they generally are indeed a patriotic lot from my experience.

Once my father told us, when we built Lowa Maha Seya (known to have had 9 stories), the highest building in England was just three story building.
Now fast forward the statement into context of 21st century and see where we stand comparatively.
We are happy to wallow in the past history only.
The common definition of Karma is the other stumbling block.

HUNTER wrote:* Pilimathalawe was a shrewd man. He carried out many missions with near success. He  planed to get British capture the King and then chase British and give the crown to a local king.
He went to the extent that when British wanted a reason to attached king, he made some reasons by making some 'king's' men to attack some 'British' as well.
However, when Sri Vickram got to know that one of Pimlima.'s relatives was going to marry a royal lady, he got panicked and assassinated Pilima. ( I am sure Molligoda also got some part to play there.)

* Ehelepola also had the same vision but he got successful in the first half only. As I heard, his second part was messed up by people like molligoda. There are records that, after being captured, Sri Vickrama got friendly with British and tipped them of Ehelepols's real ambition and advised British to use Molligoda to backfire those efforts.

Good to see your post Hunter. Yes Pilimatalawa is the most underrated character when mentioning the 1800s history. Sri lankas were poor in making tactical  decisions. 

Bravery is not the only thing can be used in a battlefield.

Molligoda also another person who took tactical decisions but sadly he used Them all for his personal benefits .

Usually when the king went on visits , it was customary for his queens, the Ministers and their spouses to go with him. It is said in a book that one day when the king was out on a visit he observed Ehelepola's wife was not in the group. He asked why she has not come.
Apparently one of the queens replied something like "king do you expect women of latter stages of pregnancy to join you in these trips?".

This should add more light to the story below.

Are you looking for anything specific, I have a bunch of books, Davy, D'Oyly, Geiger's Mahavamsa ect. Several on Kandyan history, I also recommend to you, Vesak Nanayakkara's "A Return to Kandy", I am sure you will enjoy the style of writing. Nira Wickramasinghe's Deconstructing of a Historical Relation with Ceylon, is a good example of the new scholarly approaches to history. I had a Knox but it seems to have gone on a walk, like Knox himself.

You have the original 1st eds of

Davy 1821st
Knox 1681

???

I have all the books you mentioned but the "Nira Wickramasinghe's Deconstructing of a Historical Relation with Ceylon"
and the 1st edition Knox.

Did you you know there were 3 Knox versions. The last one published ( 1911) also had an autobiography of Knox .
This autobiography was only discovered in early 1900s by Ryan. It contain more info to the original "An historical ceylon ..."
It is called the Ryan edition.

Also note the title "An historical " is something unique.

Are you looking for anything specific, I have a bunch of books, Davy, D'Oyly, Geiger's Mahavamsa ect. Several on Kandyan history, I also recommend to you, Vesak Nanayakkara's "A Return to Kandy", I am sure you will enjoy the style of writing. Nira Wickramasinghe's Deconstructing of a Historical Relation with Ceylon, is a good example of the new scholarly approaches to history. I had a Knox but it seems to have gone on a walk, like Knox himself.

Just saw this, sorry, The Davy is not first ed. I am not sure which ed the Knox is, my mother says it is somewhere among the books we packed when moving a few years ago, I will try to dig it up one of these days. I lost interest in collecting books ( and other possessions) some time ago. A part of my program to free my self from attachments. We gave away about two thirds of our library by putting all the books on a table for a month and invited people to come and pick. Most of the Ceylon books we kept and lost some in a white ant invasion. My most favorite pre independence writer is RL Brohier, who wrote beautifully about this country without the jaundiced eye of race and class. I still re read them if I am traveling to parts of the country that wrote about. I have almost all his publications.

???

I have all the books you mentioned but the "Nira Wickramasinghe's Deconstructing of a Historical Relation with Ceylon"
and the 1st edition Knox.

Did you you know there were 3 Knox versions. The last one published  ( 1911) also had an  autobiography of Knox .
This autobiography was only  discovered in  early 1900s  by Ryan. It contain more info to the original "An historical ceylon ..."
It is called the Ryan edition.

Also note the title "An historical " is something unique.

Actually I was asking whether anyone had any real old books at home  ( as hobby )

Anyway, appreciate your concern.
