It Happens Only In Sri Lanka...


I went one of ma best friends' wedding yesterday!! It was in Taj and they had arranged all the things according to Buddhist rituals...
So i thought it's better to write something about the poruwa ceremony...
actually i don't even know much about that...
anyway here goes....
Of the many traditional events that take place during the Buddhist wedding, the ‘Poruwa’ ceremony is the most important. Therefore it is strictly guided by "Nekath".

The Poruwa Ceremony appears to have existed in Sri Lanka before the introduction of Buddhism in the 3rd Century B.C.

It was as valid custom as a registered marriage until the British introduced the registration of marriages by Law in 1870. Today's Poruwa Ceremony has been influenced by both upcountry and low country customs of Sri Lanka.

Getting married in Sri lankan Style is a life time experience. Compared to anywhere in the world, Sri Lanka is famous for long lasting marriages.
Present day society also have realized the value of their heritage!they have proved it yesterday!!

Happy wedded life ma friend!!!

Private Tuition, Public Education and Us

It is very much common to see students in Sri Lanka attend to private classes for the same set of subjects which they learn at school. They don't spend their leisure time on learning something new, innovative or somewhat creative. They don't have enough time to analyse about the contents they learn. Basically they are not learning. They are just taking a screenshot of the contents they hear and see and then store it in their brains.
But why exactly they seek private tuition? Is our education system in schools that much corrupted? not up to the standard? Is that the real reason behind the fact that students take private tuition? Recently this question has come to the table during a discussion I had with some tech people. The main reason they pointed out was that school teachers don't teach well in school because they conduct their own private classes and in order to hunt more students and make money out of it, they ignore their responsibilities as a teacher.…
