What are we really Celebrating now ?

What are we celebrating?
Can someone tell me please?
Per Capita income is less than US $ 2000
Not even 3% of the GDP is invested in
Neither Education nor health
Spend more than SLR 100 Million a day
Just to glorify one person only
Corruption is endemic
And we are at the bottom end of the list
With Sudan and Afghanistan etc
Winning T20 is not worth celebrating
I will join the crowds on the streets
Only when we beat Sweden and Singapore
In the list of corrupt nations or
Invest at least 6% of the GDP in education and health
Limit spending to glorify one person
And uplift the Per Capita Income
At least to US $ 5000
Those are worth Celebrating and not just a T20 win
And who will remember it in few weeks time
What are we celebrating?
Can someone tell me please?
(My political ranting).
