vikalpa-most-viewed

For the 3rd time since its launch, Vikalpa’s YouTube video channel has hit the Top 100 list. At the time of writing, it’s #31, though earlier this morning it was #29, the highest rank globally Vikalpa has attained to date.

Earlier this year, Vikalpa was on the Top 100 list for its coverage of Lasantha Wickrematunge’s assasination.

Today’s rank was propelled by a video series titled “Is the LTTE really finished and the War Over?“.

A video featuring the spokesperson of the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) alone was viewed over 3,400 times in less than 24 hours. The video featuring Prof. Rohan Samarajiva’s response to this question in English was also viewed over 1,600 times in the same time period.

The series also features a range of leading civil society activists, politicians and academics including,

  • Vasudeva Nanayakkara
  • Prof. Rohan Samarajiva
  • Amal Jayasinghe
  • Victor Ivan
  • Prof. Tissa Vitharana
  • Dr. Vickramabahu Karunaratna
