Sunny Side Up: SJB’s ‘kaputa’ to Colombo
9 months ago
The protest march launched by the main Opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) last Tuesday (26) from Kandy is to reach Colombo today (1) together with the SJB leaders. However, a key attraction of the procession is the giant structure of a crow (‘kaputa’) wearing a red shawl (‘satakaya’) on the back of a lorry that also made its way from Kandy to Colombo amidst the chanting of the now popular song, ‘Kaputu kak kak’. Video footage of the lorry making its way within the procession shows the public joining in the protest, singing the ‘Kaputu kak kak’ song when the lorry carrying the gigantic crow passed them.
