« Milwaukee's Pacific Heritage - Ching-In Chen [Asian Pacific American Heritage Month] | Main | Other ‘Others’ on Otherness - Andre Yang [Asian Pacific American Heritage Month] »

May 23, 2012


It's sad that such a beautiful country was engaged in a 30 year war.. Anyway, it's great to see that it's finally getting over.. However it may have ended, at least the lives of another thousands of sri lankans are saved

Nice reflection.... I lived through the war as a Canadian Sri Lankan who moved back to Colombo not by design, but just happened as things go to start a solar energy business... and the rest is history...and I am back in Canada now 27 years later (after the war ended) As such, I am always fascinated with the draw we have to the old country....and your words reflect that...

... just to let you know Jean's last name is Arasanayagam.... and I had the privilege of having her as my English teacher at St. Anthony's College, Katugastota (Kandy) in 1971-3. She is Burgher (name is Solomons) and married Mr. Arasanayagam who was also a teacher at our school. As a couple we impressionable kids nicknamed them "love birds" as they were always arm in arm, holding was so lovely to see in those prudent times in and around a Catholic school....

Best wishes lalith
