57th death Anniversary of S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike falls tomorrow :

Remembering a noble statesman

His mother was Ezlynn Obeysekera, a member of the low-country nobility. Young Bandaranaike had his early education at S. Thomas’ College, Colombo. After a brilliant academic career at the Oxford University, England he returned to Ceylon as a Barrister-at-Law. Elected to the Maradana Ward of the Colombo Municipal Council defeating the then undisputed labour leader A.E. Gunasinghe, Bandaranaike plunged headlong into national politics. He was elected uncontested to the legislature as the member for Veyangoda under the Donoughmore Constitution.
