Children and adults day

October 4, 2008

On 1st of October the whole the world holds children and elders day. In modern society, people are very busy. They are unable to do their duties for their children and elders. Every one tries to earn money. They want to increase their income and wealth. So they forget their culture, habits and customs.   As a result children and elders are left in unfortunate helpless conditions.
The children are a very important group in the world. They are the next generation of the country. Every one likes to enjoy their childhood very freely and happily. So every parent’s duty is to look after their children very well and love them. We should supply their needs, improve their health and education facilities. Give nutritious food, clean water, and medicine. It is everyone’s responsibility.
Some cruel people get children as their slaves and others leave their children alone.
Some organizations have been established to improve the welfare of children. The United Nation International Children Emergency Fund was started on 1947. The object was built a fund for the children who became helpless during the Second World War. In 1955 it became the United Nation International Children Fund. We know it as UNICEF. This organization’s aim is to protect children’s rights. UNICEF  looks into children’s health, and illness in developing countries.
However every one must look after children because children are the most precious thing in the world. As well as elders are a precious resources in our world.
Because they dedicated their whole time for develop their children and family. They always tried to give a good education for their children and make good living conditions for their family.
But when they became old everyone forgets their parents and elders. This condition is very sad. In old age elders should expect love, help, kindness, and affection. We should give our love to them and we should look after them like our eyes. When they became helpless they feel very sad and they became lonely people.
So as intelligent humans we must look after our elders and children. Then we can be satisfied that we fulfilled our duties and responsibilities.

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.

Once upon a time there was an ant. One day he wanted to go on a journey. As the journey was long it became night on the way. Then hHe wanted to find a lodge to pass the night. At that time, heHe saw a  dunghill near the road. Then he searched it’s condition. He saw that it is dry dunghill. Then hHe thought it is the best suitable place to pass the night. After that he entered to the dunghill and rest freely and went in to rest. When he was passing the night in the dunghill he thought aloneto him self, “This is the suitable place to build a town”. Then he placed his idea in mind.
First of all heHe finished his journey. After that he and went back to his village. He told his idea and said to all ants who lived in his village.

This is the tern our farmers reap their paddy in our village

July 23, 2008

  

This is the time farmers in our village reap their paddy. They reap the harvest by using traditional and modern methods. I think modern methods are very easy compared to the traditional methods . Some farmers reap their harvest using the manual system while  others use modern cutting machines. But they all face many problems reaping the harvest because of heavy rain. They pray to the gods to protect their paddy fields from violent rain. The weather is changing more and more. I think it is caused by man’s harmful activities.
This harvest is a very pleasant and busy time for all our houses. After reaping the harvest, every house is filled with new paddy. A house filled with new paddy is a symbol of prosperity. Every house according to custom, divides a part of the harvest for a “Buddha pooja”. Milk rice made from the new paddy is given as alms to village temple. We then partake in it afterwards, sharing our happiness with others.
