We are getting ready to my sisters wedding. I have taken over the task of providing a music band for the wedding day. The wedding to be held in one of the hotels in mount lavinia. I have thought of few bands like Marians, Sanidapa, Sunflowers. My sisters choice is Nalin Perera’s Marians group. I tried searching Marians contact numbers and could not find their phone number or e-mail yet. I would be thankful if one of you can find me Marian’s or Nalin Perera or Marians music band manager’s phone number.
“Nethangasaraa” was a very good song sung by Upali Ranjith in 1980-1990. His first album had the same name and with very good collection of songs. He also sang theme songs in few of the teledramas. But I did not get a chance to listen to any of his new songs. Is he still singing or what happened to him? I am curious as he was a very good singer. He had a voice like Athma Liyanage.
Sudarma Neththikumara is a popular name in Sri Lanka due to her recent teledrama productions. First, Sudarma financed the production of “Ganga Addara” teledrama. Sudarma Neththikumara is again popular as she is producing the “Bharyawao’ teledrama. Bharyawo is now being telecast in Sirasa TV from Monday to Friday at 9.00 pm. Minister Vimal Weerawansha’s wife Shasi Weerawansha has written the theme song of this teledrama and she has also contributed to develop the story of “Bharyawo” teledrama. As I remember Sudarma was also one partner of S- 3 Entertainment company. The others in the company were Sangeetha Weerarathna (the actress) and Shereen Kumarathunga (Minister Jeewan Kumarathunga’s wife). They organized the big musical of Rukantha and Chandraleka few years back. They also presented Nirosha Virajini’s Adaraya musical. My questions are, 1. what are the businesses Sudarma Neththikumara doing in Sri Lanka? 2. Who was Sudarma Neththikumara’s husband?
This question is for fellow Sri Lankans who are living abroad. There are many Sri Lankans who live overseas, as immigrant workers, permanent residents, citizens, etc. There are some of us who have not got a chance to visit our mother land for years due to many reasons. There is one thing common for all of us, We all miss our mother nation. We are always eager to know things which are happening in Sri Lanka. We read all the online papers, find time to watch Sri lanka news, reality shows, etc. I have many things in mind to do when I visit Sri Lanka. I hope you also would be having. We can not buy certain things in the countries we live which we love in Sri Lanka. I have a list, but I do not want to distract your thinking. My question is what is the first thing that you would do when you visit Sri Lanka next time ?
I just now got an e-mail telling that world cup final match between Sri Lanka and India has been moved to Sri Lanka. It says that this is due to intelligence reports saying that there is a risk of terrorist attack in Mumbai India. I live in Canada and hope lanka help friends who live in Sri Lanka have a better idea. Is there any reliable news. I noted the same news in Divaina online edition. But it is still hard for me to believe this. If there is any change of venue there has to be some preparation in R.Premadasa ground. have you noticed any preparation in R. Premadasa ground? Has Sri Lanka cricket or ICC issued a notice?
I have a 8 month old and we have successfully weaned him. We always add little bit of Astra margarine to his foods. We intended to increase energy density by adding Astra margarine. But one of my friend recently told me that it is not recommended to give Astra margarine for children below 3years. But I do not see any health warning in the Astra margarine boxes. We are really concerned about this issue and have stopped using margarine and instead now we use butter. But I would be thankful if I know the basis for this “not good for children” thing as we have given my child plenty of margarine during the past few months.
When I was watching “Sanhida” program in ITN, a musician called Nandana Liyanage sang “Kombule mage Kombule, Tharadevi Kombule” song. I noticed that he had same facial expressions and singing style very much closer to popular singer Athma Liyanage. First I thought it is Athma and then I realized it is not exactly his voice. But amazingly had same look, just like Athma. I wonder if anyone knows anything about this singer…. The look a like of Athma Liyanage
I remember Sri lankan cricket hero and the best batsmen Sri lanka cricket produced, Aravinda Silva got married to a beautiful girl. If I remember right she was a model and also featured in Elephant house cream soda advertisement. Aravinda had a son from this marriage. But I did not hear any news about Aravinda’s family lately. I am wondering whether he is divorced. Aravinda is one of my favorite cricketer and I would be thankful if one can share these information.
