CHOGM 2013  speakers stand: Tamil writing says Ayubowan, the singhalese word for Welcome, instead of the Tamil word for welcome Vanakkam ;In Tamil there is noword called Ayubowan.  And in English too it says Ayubowan not welcome.  Sinhala and Tamil are offcial languages while the English is link language. But this is how two language policy is rejected at highest levels.

This is a clear example of language discrimination in Sri Lanka.
