I clearly understand the need behind this theme, but while sitting at the preparatory meeting i had with other Commonwealth stake holders in my beloved country i wondered; can we really celebrate a united Commonwealth?
Tough question it is because presently not all Commonwealth countries approve of Sri Lanka and the UK's decision to host the last CHOGOM-Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting there.
But yes in another way we can celebrate those small areas where the Commonwealth has agreed on unanimously like sports for example. The tour of the Queen's Baton is another.
And I came to a conclusion, many little areas of unity within the Commonwealth if celebrated and appreciated may spur more unity within the group and when that happens, we may indeed speak of a Team Commonwealth.
