MADDUMA BANDARA

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.

LET US PROTECT COMMON ASSETS

Since the very first moment of our birth we tend to claim our mother as ours. But as time elapses we come to realise that she belongs to our siblings as well. Thus she becomes a common asset. A common asset means a property by which all the members of a common social family are benefited.
The present society is a complicated one and the assets available for the benefit of all people alike are plentiful, highways, ways of public transport and service such as libraries, hospitals and schools are some among them. These common assets are maintained with the funds of all of us together and they are administered by a government appointed by vote of all people. Thus they become the wealth of each and every person in the society, and it’s the duty and responsibility of all of us to protect them for the benefit of everyone.
