A renowned Buddhist is remembered

W.A.D. Ramanayake

The birth anniversary of Dr. W.A.D. Ramanayake JP, MMC falls today. He was an old boy of Ananda College, Colombo. An architect by profession he was a member of the Hunupitiya Ward of the Colombo Municipal Council for many years. As a token of appreciation the Municipal Council renamed Alston Place as W.A.D. Ramanayake Mawatha. He was a loving father and loving grandfather and as a granddaughter I loved him very much.

He was a devout Buddhist and was a member of the Dayaka Sabha of the Gangarama Temple. May he attain Nibbana!
