The power that can take the country forward
Youth has the power to take the country forward
in all areas politically, economically and socially and due to this
reason Youth Core was founded. The interview was given to the Sunday
Observer by the Director of the Youth Core Piyatissa Ranasighe to
reminisce over the projects and programmes of the previous year and
to discuss the new projects and developments to be made for the year
Ramba Raja Maha Vihara
From past history to excavations, restorations
The Ramba Raja Maha Vihara the Central Cultural
Triangle Project sponsored by the UNESC, is located in the Walawe
Basin lying in the lintels of the Hambantota district on the
Colombo-Ratnapura-Pelmadulla-Embilipitiya-Nonagama Junction, about
12 miles away from Embilipitiya where I have been presently
domiciled for over 37 years.
'Protect Sri Lanka's coral reefs'
Biological wonders of the sea, rich biodiversity
among the largest and oldest living communities of plants and
animals on earth having evolved between 200 and 450 million years
ago: the coral reef condition in Sri Lanka has shown a progressive
decline within the last three decades. In 1998 following the
bleaching event induced by the El Nino as well the tsunami that hit
Sri Lanka in 2004 there was accelerated decline of the reefs and
recovery after 1998 has been slow.
