Madduma Bandara is the name of one of our national heroes. He is a child hero. He lived during the reign of Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe, the last king of Ceylon. His father was one of the king’s ministers. His name was ”Ehelepola”
Ehelepola didn’t obey kings orders. He fled away and hid in a remote place. The king was very angry. He ordered that Ehelepola’s family be killed. They were brought to Bogambara by the king’s men. It was Madduma Bandara’s elder brother who had to face death first. But he dared not to come forward.
Madduma was a brave boy. He came forward like a hero. The executor cut his head off the neck. Thus the name of Madduma Bandara was written in our history.
