The sun rises from east to west, but still it carries the same heat all-around. Sun shows us all that there is no difference between any of us who lives anywhere. North or south, east or west, there are only Sri Lankans with the same blood in this motherland. It is Yaldewi who carries the love and affection from south to north, which is not just a train, but a blood vein that connects us all together. So UoM Leos, carried the warmth of harmony and happiness from Colombo to Jaffna through the same blood vein for the 3 rd consecutive year on 12th and 13th of January.
But this year, it was more than a Pongal celebration. UoM Leos together with the Sri Lankan Army Vijayabahu Regiment 10 th Battalion distributed stationeries to flood affected school children at Aliyawalai C.C. Tamil Mixed School in Jaffna.
Beach cleaning project was one of the best projects done during those two days as that beach was full of scattered waste and it was sad to see such an unclean place that harms the beauty of our motherland. Since it is one of our utmost duties to clean the environment UoM Leos did it with a great motive and the pleasure of leaving a beautiful country to the future generation.
The best experience came in the evening of the 2 nd or the last day, when we played cricket matches with our nations’ guardians. It is always a pleasure and an honor to spend time with them and we were blessed to spend a whole day with them.
“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” Kolomthotin Yalpanamata is also a step towards peace and unity among Sri Lankans.
