Down memory lane through the 'serious houses' in
the Galle Diocese:
The year is 1903, the place, Hambanthota. The
young man in question...a figment of my imagination. The facts in
the letter though, are real. So too the note - "At the beginning of
the year there was an incident of small-pox. The Catholics made a
vow to get a statue of St. Sebastian for the church if they were
spared from the epidemic. None of them were attacked by the disease.
On December 8th they fulfilled their vow".
Love and business well matched
Sreeni talks about life with eminent businessman
"He is well-focused and target oriented, and
doesn't waste a second in vain," she continues. May be true! His
very first target was launched when he was a teen at the age of
seventeen; that was to win his love, Sreeni.
