SRI LANKA DIASPORA PHOTO EXHIBITION
Victor Melder Citation

 


 

DFAT “PLATINUM” ANNIVERSARY

70 long years of outstanding association between Australia and Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, culminates in an anniversary which should afford our diaspora here plenty of pleasure and worthwhile pride in thirteen very special members of “my lovely Island home” who have,  in various ways, enhanced the reputation of the tiny Island we called “home”.

Thousands of Sri Lankans now call Australia home,  and the majority have “done their old Country proud”, but the diplomatic relations between Australia & Ceylon/Sri Lanka from 1947-2017 would naturally be too vast to be comprehensively “covered” and, as such, the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade, Australia, in their wisdom, decided to celebrate this special anniversary by “showcasing” thirteen prominent, successful members with Sri Lankan Heritage in a “photograph exhibition” to be exhibited all around this huge Island Continent., a photograph exhibition which will hopefully be seen by as many Sri Lankans as possible.

I do wish that I could have elaborated on a dozen of these worthwhile members but this time I choose to “feature” just one. The 13th of the “elite” who is well-known to me. His name is Victor Melder, already a household name among the Lankan diaspora in Australia, Victor has, for 49 years, been advising everyone of us who has contacted him with everything we needed to know about what was happening in S.L. (at the moment), who has just “passed-away”, who was getting married, etc etc. His “Library”, which he has built up at his home in Broadmeadows Vic., contains “reading-matter” on Lanka that most other Lankans have not even heard about & will, in time,  enhance the premises of the  Monash University Library.

As I always say, in my opinion, Victor Melder is one of the MOST deserving Lankan/Aussies to be granted this honour and together with the other “S.L.Worthies”, should be warmly congratulated on their effort, for & on behalf of Sri Lanka/Australia relations.

The exhibition will be on display at Parliament House, Canberra for some time, before hopefully moving to Sydney and Melbourne. The exhibition is being simultaneously displayed at the Sri Lanka Parliament.

The A.B.C. of Lankan Cricket

by Desmond Kelly “the Star of eLanka!”

Congratulations are in order to our Sri Lankan Cricketers, all. After beating South Africa, in South Africa, which wasn’t at all easy, their T20 “team” came to Australia, beat the Prime Minister’s “Eleven” which should not have happened because our P.M. seems to be having a rough time of it, off the field as well, then came to the M.C.G. in Melbourne to defeat the “home-side” in one of the closest T20 cricket matches I have ever seen. Right down to the “last” ball, with Lanka needing just one “run” to win, a boundary of 4 was hit, giving this “entertaining cricket team” another well-earned win.

It is “on purpose” that I will refrain from actually naming the gentlemen involved in the game that they love so much. Firstly, all their names seem to be so lengthy (these days), what happened to “Kalu” who kept wickets and helped Sri Lanka win the World-Cup a few years ago?, & shortened his name to help me minimize the risk of writer’s cramp,& secondly, the details of names, scores, averages etc., comes under the jurisdiction of my good mate, Trevine Rodrigo, who,being a top “Sports-Writer”, handles all this with great skill, for & on behalf of both eLanka & the Lanka Times.

Getting back to the game I watched last night. It has been quite a while since I last saw a game of cricket in this particular “format”. How things have changed! ?, Firstly, it was ONLY “Test-Cricket”, then Mr.Kerry Packer decided to bring in his own version of the game c/w much more colourful “uniforms” etcetera from which, followed ODIs (one-day Internationals) featuring 50 overs per side culminating in what was termed “The World Cup Of Cricket”. Incidentally, this is the “format” preferred not only by this writer, but most other Lankans too.
