The Rumor says “The Sinhalese are the descendants of Vijaya and his men.

September 29, 2008

The Sinhalese are the descendants of Vijaya and his men. In the past, king Sinhabahu had a son named Vijaya. Vijaya and his friends always did many violent deeds and mischievous deeds. The people of that kingdom could bare it any longer and reported to the matter king. The king warned Vijaya not to behave in bad manner, but he kept repeating his acts.
So king Sinhabahu sent Vijaya and seven hundred of his friends away.
They sailed down the coast of India and came to Sri Lanka.
When they landed, one of Vijaya’s men saw a dog. He thought there is a town and started following the dog. The dog led him to a pond where there was a woman spinning. She was called Kuveni and she had magical powers. The dog was one of her servants. Kuveni took the man and shut him in a cave.
Another man followed the dog the same way. When Vijaya followed the dog and came near the pond, he saw that there were men’s foot steps going into the pond but none coming out of it.
Vijaya saw Kuveni and guessed what happened. He threatened to kill Kuveni if she did not free his men. Kuveni did as he ordered.
Finally she became Vijaya’s wife and helped him to win the kingdom from her own people.
Many years later Vijaya wanted to have a wife of his own race from India.
By this time Vijaya had two kids, one son and one daughter, named Jeewahaththa and Disala. He told Kuveni to leave the two children and go away. But Kuveni wanted to stay. She wept and asked him not to send her away but it was in vain. Vijaya threw them out from the palace.
Kuveni went to a city belonging to her own people. Because she helped Vijaya against her own relations they killed her. Her children escaped to the hill country. The Sinhalese are descendants of Vijaya and his men

If we protect public property.

September 29, 2008

Public property is common property. It belongs to every one and every one can use it. Examples of public property schools are: temples, churches, Kovils, post offices, libraries, buses, trains, police stations, telephone systems, electric system, highways, irrigation system, and the transport system.
Every time if we think of public property, we should remember it belongs all and should be protect like our eyes.
If we protect public property it can be used not only this generation but also by future generations. So we should learn to protect these common things and learn to use then carefully.
Using public property carefully saves money. We should always think that public property  belongs to us and that we are the community of our country. If we damage public property we do harm to ourselves. We only waste money that could be used for other development work.
We should protect public property for our younger generations. It is our duty. Every time we should think of others. Then we can develop our country day by day.

Freedom for all

September 16, 2008

Sri Lanka  got independence on the 4th of February in 1948. That day is a very important day for us. The father of our country’s independence is Mr. D.S. Senanayake.  
In the past heroes fought foreigners to liberate Sri Lanka. They sacrificed their lives for freedom. Today our brave soldiers fight in the North to get freedom from terrorists. They have faced many terrible  situations. But they don’t think of these difficulties and they fight the cruel terrorists to free our country.
 The people of a free country should have the opportunity to live without fear.
Because of terrorism in Sri Lanka that opportunity was lost.
It is the wish of all that in the future, Sri Lanka will be an independent peaceful country.
