Daily walk is the Panacea for good health & Longevity Good advice by Dr. harold
Martin Luther Jr said it differently-
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther Jr. did not have health in mind when he cited the above to his people, but that citation applies well as a drive for good health.

Incredible UNSEEN FOOD in Sri Lanka – Indigenous Vedda Tribe! – By Mark Wiens
SRI LANKAN FOOD – Sri Lanka is known As the pearl of the Indian Ocean, and that’s because it really is a gem of an island.

Today we had the privilege to visit an Indigenous Vedda Sri Lankan Village, where they prepared for us some traditional Sri Lankan food. We first arrived to the lake, where we then had to take a boat across the lake, and then walk for about 30 minutes to get the village. ……………………

A horrific Easter that will never be forgotten – BY TREVINE RODRIGO IN MELBOURNE

A tribute to Brian Pereira By brother Lorenz Pereira. Both outstanding sportsmen from Sri Lanka

Remembering Bryan
Eustace Bryan Pereira passed away on 3 April 2019 at the age of 78, quite unexpectedly, but peacefully, with dignity and with no fuss in keeping with his gentle character and laconic lifestyle. Bryan operated in a by-gone time capsule setting his own agenda, quite oblivious to the topsy turvy and goings on of the environment around him.He was blessed with simplicity and humility, like his Father, and was unbothered with the triviality of inconsequential occurings of daily life. Indeed a most pragmatic and philosophical path to a contented lifestyle………..

“ONE LADY’S STORY” – By Des Kelly (and Inspiring story of a Muslim Lady By Shihara Farook)

Once again, sent to me by my good friend and eLanka cartoonist Max Gerreyn, is the above lady’s story. I am fully aware that much has been written by many, on the “horrendous happenings” in Sri Lanka, of late, but here is a story that I perused very carefully, and, reading between the lines, cannot help, but be very impressed indeed with the simple, yet heartfelt rendering of a story to remember…….

Only in Sri Lanka – By Gloria Meltzer
Sale Price $20

My latest book, titled ‘ONLY IN SRI LANKA’, was published by Jojo Publishing in September this year. This story is based on my introduction to Sri Lankan life, its culture & customs, as experienced by my Singhalese daughter-in-law, my Australian son, and my three Aussie/Sri Lankan grandsons. It’s the story of village life, the time of the civil war and the tsunami. It’s the story of coming to terms with losing my family to another culture and another country.

“THE SRI LANKAN WOUNDED” – By Des Kelly

It was heartbreaking enough to hear of all these people, (253 of them, now definitely identified), killed, on Easter Sunday, last, most of them, Sri Lankan, of course, but some, like the wife, daughter &;young son of an English visitor, who died at the Shangrila hotel, absolutely heart-rending to hear about the little children, boys & girls, who had died, minutes after receiving Holy Communion at the Zion Church, in Batticoloa, totally emotional to see actual photographs of these little martyrs, in their coffins, when they should have been outside, in the gardens of the Church, playing and enjoying the sunshine. ALL THIS, NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED………..

Does it take terror to unify Sri Lankans? – An opinion by Aubrey Joachim

The Cathedral was packed to capacity. In fact it was overflowing. The crowd was whispering in soft murmurs. Politicians of all hues, service personnel, diplomats, religious dignitaries, and thousands of ordinary men and women had gathered. The ringing of bells signaled the beginning of proceedings.

A well-attended multi-faith memorial service and peace vigil was held at St Christopher’s Cathedral in Forrest, Canberra on 23 April 2019 at 7.00 pm to honour and pray for the victims, the injured and their families from the Easter Sunday explosions in Sri Lanka.

The attendees were welcomed by Fr. Daniel Benedetti and a message from the Archbishop Christopher Prowse was read in Sinhala , Tamil and English…..

Sri Lanka hope to prevail amid the chaos and confusion – BY TREVINE RODRIGO IN MELBOURNE – SRI LANKA SQUAD FOR THE World Cup 2019 in England

In a country that dwells on chaos and confusion in many aspects, Sri Lanka’s beleaguered cricket selectors have finally put together a squad for the World Cup as heated debate on media and social platforms dissects the selected members.

The most significant point of conjecture is the selection of Test skipper Dimuth Karunaratna to lead the side overlooking at least three former limited overs skippers who the selectors perceive will divide the commitment from within……..

Only in Sri Lanka – By Gloria Meltzer
Sale Price $20
My latest book, titled ‘ONLY IN SRI LANKA’, was published by Jojo Publishing in September this year. This story is based on my introduction to Sri Lankan life, its culture & customs, as experienced by my Singhalese daughter-in-law, my Australian son, and my three Aussie/Sri Lankan grandsons. It’s the story of village life, the time of the civil war and the tsunami. It’s the story of coming to terms with losing my family to another culture and another country.

SHOULD DISLOYALTY BE OVERLOOKED? – By Joe Van Langenberg (Introduced by Des Kelly)

Australian prime Minister Scott Morrison, in consultation with his team of national security advisors, have finally and sagaciously decided to crack the whip on those surreptitiously making their way out of the country to war-ravaged Syria, to fight alongside the so-called Islamic State, a much-feared killing machine (led by one of the most ruthless terrorist leaders of all time Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi) , for the sole purpose of causing death to innocent people, destroying property on a monumental scale, while simultaneously waging a protracted vendetta on the democratic way of life; not to mention radicalizing and coercing non-Muslims to accept Sharia Law and brainwashing them with their twisted ideological beliefs…………

Your Best Friends are in your Gut – By Dr Harold Gunatillake

Fifty years ago, and prior, we knew that we had good bacteria in our gut. We named them “Bacterial Flora”

SRI LANKA NEWS IN BRIEF – MARCH 2019 – By Victor Melder

The International Monetary Fund on Friday revived a $1.5 billion bailout for Sri Lanka that was suspended over a government power struggle last year that seriously slowed economic growth. The Washington-based lender said officials visiting Colombo agreed to re-activate the three-year loan, which started in 2016 and spread the instalments over an additional year.”The team reached understandings at the staff level with the Sri Lankan authorities… to allow more time for the completion of the economic reform agenda,” the IMF said. The Fund had been due to release an instalment in October when President Maithripala Sirisena sacked his Prime Minister and called fresh elections, triggering a two month power struggle in the island nation. …..

Prime Minister – Joint Media Release – BUSTING CONGESTION ACROSS SYDNEY AND THE CENTRAL COAST – Wednesday 27 March 2019

“Slaves built Galle Fort” – By Des Kelly

Something, that I am afraid, not too many of us would have ever known, but for the fact that we “live & learn” until we die. I have always considered myself to be an avid reader, from a very early age, and always having been interested in the history of the Land of my birth, always imagined that the Galle & Colombo Forts were built by the Dutch who “ruled” the Island from 1640-1796,………………

Sri Lanka’s triumphant Test match euphoria has quickly dissipated into the previously familiar role of eating humble pie as the South Africans exacted revenge for their embarrassment in the Tests by grinding their opponents into the dust leading 3-0 in the one-dayers in a relentless display of ferocity….

BEING MARRIED TO A THOMIAN – “Thomians Hunt in Packs; Never Alone” – By Shamila Jayasinha

My journey through life with my Thomian began with this hunt. In an era when mobile phones, SMS, e-mails and Facebook were unheard of, the hunt was indeed a difficult task. Therefore, this hunt was meticulously planned out at a house located right opposite Bishop’s College (whoever designed it, bless his dear departed soul, certainly had the best interest of young Thomians in mind for it has a large balcony overlooking the grounds of Bishop’s College).

Date of the Hunt: 31st October 1981
Venue: Food Fair, Bishop’s College.

GEORGE WALL – THE LION THAT ROARED – By Bernard VanCuylenburg

A few months ago I wrote an article titled “David and Goliath” which featured a young English tea planter Mark Anthony Bracegirdle, who rocked the colonial establishment when he sided with the workers and the unions, by demanding better living conditions for the estate labourers on the plantations. His colonial masters were dumbfounded and furious to find that it was “one of their own” who by the courage of his convictions, proved to be the proverbial thorn in their side…….

Variety is the spice of life in sensational Sri Lanka: Why Lonely Planet was right when it said the country is the best place to visit in 2019

Andrew and his wife Caroline thoroughly enjoyed a train ride from Kandy to Ella. The train climbs very slowly up 1,500m through mountains, jungle and tea plantations

We had swung by Kadugannawa on the way from Negombo – a forgettable transit town a short drive from Colombo airport – where we’d decided to spend one night after the journey to the island. …….

How Great Thou art – by Desmond Kelly
Digital Download
Only $2.50

Only in Sri Lanka – By Gloria Meltzer
Sale Price $20

My latest book, titled ‘ONLY IN SRI LANKA’, was published by Jojo Publishing in September this year. This story is based on my introduction to Sri Lankan life, its culture & customs, as experienced by my Singhalese daughter-in-law, my Australian son, and my three Aussie/Sri Lankan grandsons. It’s the story of village life, the time of the civil war and the tsunami. It’s the story of coming to terms with losing my family to another culture and another country.

Especially for You
