Skype in the time of Avurudu


AMALI, London: “We went on skype just before 7.20 pm SL time, my mum had already prepared everything on a traditional wooden stove with a pot and milk.

She told me to put milk and rice in a small pot and let it simmer on the owen. We live next to a temple in Sri Lanka, so we could hear the bell and pirith starting at 7.20pm. [Read more…]
