Braggadocio -- empty boasting of American power, American virtue, American know-how -- has dominated our foreign relations now for some decades.

Never before, perhaps, has a culture been so fragmented into groups, each full of its own virtue, each annoyed and irritated at the others. (Quote by - Daniel J. Boorstin)

Sri Lanka is our country. Our culture, our race, our people. Sometimes we forget this, forget that greatness can also be achieved in our Motherland. Our Motherland, what it means to us and how we can make it better. We chase that elusive dream, the white picket fenced house, which is not ours, some white-man in the west goes to sleep and wakes up thinking about it. And we foolishly dream his dream.

(Quote by - Laura Bush)

In the sense that mainstream culture is moving toward our end of culture, that may be the case. The Kimmel Center may call us about a performer. What we love and what we present does not change.
