End of an odyssey AVERTISTMENTS
Sir Arthur C. Clarke made Sri Lanka his home for over 50 of his 90 years. I feel privileged to have known him for over 40 of those. He clearly inspired the careers of some of us, who became interested in astronomy and space.
My friend to the end
We were friends from our schooldays, though we attended different schools. Anura was a Royalist, while I was a Thomian. We often used to ‘hack’ each other about our schools. Many were the references to our schools and it was all good fun.
Living for little Kusani
The pretty girl on the bed will be eight on April 10. But looking closely, realization dawns that all is not well with her, for she lies immobile with her limbs aflop.
Yipee! and they were off on Country Roads
The colonial era courtyard of the Mount Lavinia Hotel had been transformed into a scene from the old west. In an atmosphere reminiscent of a typical country barn, two horses stood in their paddocks while cowboys greeted the country music fans arriving at Country Roads XVI.
Hot spot in cool climes
One of the oldest plantation bungalows has become the newest ‘hot’ place to stay, in the manner of a trendy boutique hotel. But Warwick Gardens at Ambewela is much more than a fashionable retreat for conspicuous spenders; it is a creation of colonial chic done with contemporary flair.
Hot off the biogas
It’s a busy working day at the Kottawa junction and as vehicles whiz past on High Level Road many are the people stepping into the large and airy vegetarian café, in the heart of the town, to be served steaming hot vadai, smoking thosai or string hoppers with curries giving out mouth-watering odours.
Bringing a personal touch to the profession
Not only does Sri Lanka have a new British High Commissioner, but for the first time, Westminster House will have young children in it. Dr. Peter Hayes, his wife Kirsty Hayes, and their children Libby and Jasper are only just settling into the sprawling house that will be their home for the next three or four years.
Smart women, right decisions: a recipe for decent work
The Global Employment Trends for Women 2008 report shows that in 2007, 1.2 billion women around the world were employed, almost 200 million or 18.4 per cent more than ten years ago.
Headlong rush into change, for change's sake
I welcome Dr. Tara de Mel's discussion on education in The Sunday Times of December 2 and 9, 2007 and in the Daily Mirror of January 7, 2008.
The glory of Christ’s Resurrection
Today is Easter Sunday. The greatest mystery of Christendom is the Resurrection of Jesus on the third day after His death on the cross on Good Friday. The Resurrection celebrates the greatest feast of the Christians because it is the Rising of Jesus from the grave on which the Christian faith stands on.
