Dharmasiri Gamage

Today is a sad day.

A simple man, my ex-boss Suminda’s father, the one who has written the famous Sinhala song ”Chandana Ellen Nâla” which is coincidently happened to be my name too, has passed away.

This is a great loss to the Sinhala literature. Even though he has passed away the things he has written, songs, books, articles will stay among us, for many yeas to come.

Chandana: [Sanskrit] sandalwood, the fragrance, or the cosmetics made out of sandalwood
