RATTAN CHAIR DAY: I first met Kodi long before I met him in real life. I heard his voice on the iam .lk website before I came over to Sri Lanka and I had no idea that I would ever find him . Kannan Arunasalam had met Kodi in Galle and it was great to hear the story of Kodi’s time in Jaffna as a young civil servant as they called people who worked in the Govt Service. On that day of my Galle holiday with my family i stepped into the Library to check out the books and as I was leaving, a friendly voice asked me whether I was a tourist and which country I lived in. Answering him, somehow I knew it was Kodi even before I asked him. His face beamed with surprise and pleasure that I had heard his story. Well I was going to hear more.
