Message for Mother
My mum Sumudu is my dear friend.
She is near me whenever I need help.
Her pleasing smile makes my life very pleasant
She is the sunshine that lights my life
All mum’s are great but my mum is the greatest
Because she is a mum to everyone around.
Mama I love you, Mama I care.
Mama you are my whole world.

The festival of Eid-Ul-Fitr
Muslims the world over celebrated the Festival of
Eid-Ul-Fitr to mark the end
of the 30 day Ramadan Fast.
On this holy day, the faithful dressed in their festival best make their way to the nearby mosques in the early morning to attend special Eid prayers being held. This is followed by a sermon delivered by the Pesh Imam of the mosque to explain the importance and the merits derived by observing the holy fast. The sermon comes to an end with all those present exchanging
Eid Mubarak greetings by embracing each other and paying their respects and obeisance to the elders, friends and relatives.
On returning home the smell of delicious dishes will fill the air. After a hearty meal most people will visit the graveyards of their loved ones who are no more and pray for them. In the evening, friends, relatives and well wishers drop in to convey their greetings and best wishes and exchange gifts too. Favourite sweets,
short-eats and faludas are served. People spend their leisure time with their families and loved ones and have an enjoyable time.
On this occasion let me extend sincere wishes and greetings to all the Funday Times readers and friends a bright and prosperous
Eid-Ul-Fitr Festival!

The sunshine
These days, the sunshine is an unbearable thing for us. The sunshine is so hot that it is impossible for us to do some outdoor work. The plants too have withered and only a few plants stand tall enough to bear the heat. Not only humans and animals, even plants could not stand the heat.

If the sunshine wasn’t so hot, then all of us could stay healthy as the hot sun brought fever, headaches, viruses and other illnesses to the living. Animals suffer from dehydration and they die too.

Not only Sri Lanka, even countries like Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia too can’t bear the heat of the sun. Sri Lanka is better than the other countries as the other countries’ temperature exceeds 40 degrees centigrade. We have to drink plenty of water to quench our thirst.
We all should hope that the sunshine will become less hot soon and that areas which do not have rains could get rains too.

If I were a butterfly
How wonderful if I were a butterfly!
I would have gone everywhere to see the beauty of the world.
I haven’t teeth as you and no hands as you have but I have multi-coloured smooth wings to fly, and six legs to walk. I have tiny eyes to see. Sometimes I fly with my friends. Small children like to chase me. I’m afraid of them. When I see them I fly high.

I lay eggs under the leaves. When I’m tired I rest awhile sitting on flowers. When I am hungry I sit on the flowers and suck nectar.
I do not harm the flowers. I never fly without looking at them. I like to spend the end of my life at Adam’s Peak by flying to the top with the pilgrims. Not only children, but also adults like me as we are the creatures who beautify the environment.

It is a royal story about a great king called Dharmashoka. He has two younger brothers and one elder brother. Ashoka’s father is King Bindusara. His mother is Queen Dharma. He has three names. They are Ashoka / Dharmashoka / Chandashoka.

The main character is Ashoka. Ashoka is a brave boy. Ashoka has many enemies. They are the siblings of Ashoka, Susheema and Siyamak.

My country
My country is Sri Lanka. It has a great history. Sri Lanka is a land of kings. Our ancient kings ruled at Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Kandy. They built many palaces, temples and tanks. We can see the ruins of those places even today. We can be proud of our ancestors. We can be proud of our nation and country. Since I belong to this blessed land, I am proud of being a Sri Lankan.

Sri Lanka is the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean.’ It is a beautiful island with a tropical climate where tourists are highly fascinated. Beautiful blue waters in the sea with golden sand are a heaven to tourists to enjoy. The central hills with waterfalls, green tea estates and meadows, where the misty clouds float, are some of the gifts of nature. We are in an agricultural country where the crops and grains for our food are produced. We as children of Mother Lanka should be proud of our natural gifts.

Ours is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-cultural country, where people live in peace and unity. We enjoy freedom while respecting others. Sri Lankans are a hospitable nation with faces full of smiles. This is known among the foreigners and they respect us. We are a country with dignity that is unique in our Sri Lankan ideology. Therefore, I am proud to be a Sri Lankan.
