“RADIO DAYS” – By Des Kelly
 Happy Birthday for the
2nd July from eLanka Desmond!

by Desmond Kelly – ‘the Star of eLanka”

“Those were the days, those “radio days”. Famous “Radio Ceylon” was born in 1925 and, even for a Country that was, at the time, known as “The Pearl of the Orient”, still another wonderful description of this tiny Country of ours, this “medium-wave-marvel” soon started to receive plaudits from all around the World. Just think about it, Ladies, ….

In a moment that drew confused clapping from guests, up-and-coming comedian Dilruk Jayasinha took out this year’s Graham Kennedy Most Popular New Talent award.
Beating out well-known soap stars, Jayasinha managed to scoop up the award with his roles on ABC comedy Utopia and the short-lived show Cram! on Network 10.

Sri Lankan engineer wins `Australian of the year award’

Jayantha Wickramatunga who arrived in Australia in 1994 has given his knowledge, time and leisure for the benefit of the country he lives and has been honoured with a prestigious award…………

From its inception by King Yashovarman in 889 AD, to its decline in the 14th century, Angkor in Cambodia was the capital of the powerful Khmer empire. …………..
The name Jerry Lewis, in the minds of most people, and especially “the oldies”, will immediately conjure up images of a Comedian who, together with singer/entertainer Dean Martin gave the World many magical moments in “Showbiz”, but my “story” today, is about another “Icon” of this very difficult “business”, another “Star”, with a similar name, in Jerry Lee Lewis. Mention this name and numbers like “Shake, Rattle & Roll & “Great balls of fire” plus dozens of others of the early rock n roll era come to mind……………

Only in Sri Lanka – By Gloria Meltzer
$30 includes free shipping

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.
