“IN SPAIN THEY SAY “SI SI””

by Desmond Kelly – ‘the Star of eLanka”
 

In Spain, they say “si si’, in France they say ‘”vi vi”
Every little Dutch girl says “ya” “ya”
Every little Danish “doll” says “da”
But sweetheart, tell me why? 
No matter how I try
Won’t you answer to my plea
Just say it in any language to me
When will you say “si si”.

A MUSICAL ODYSSEY by Bernard VanCuylenburg

In contrast to the lyrical title of this article, I am compelled to refer to the writings of Celaleddin Rumi one of  the world’s greatest mystic philosophers who lived in the 13th century, in Turkey. His poetic and religious works mostly in Persian are some of the most beloved and respected in the Islamic world. He wrote “Jars of spring water are not enough. 

 


 

It’s always nice to hear a good news story from the Motherland, so here’s something that gladdened our hearts.

No doubt you’ve heard of SOS Children’s Villages who run the most wonderful and loving homes for children throughout Sri Lanka. Whilst you may think they are 100% supported by an international NGO, that’s not the case. They’re currently funded partly by people like you and I.

Back in 2001, a young girl, Anjalika, arrived on their doorstep. Alone and frightened by her new surroundings she took some time to settle in. After all, going from being without a close family to being planted in the middle of a large one was a whole new experience for her.

 
 

 
 
Excellent news, (not silly “breaking news”, that has got to be “fixed”), our new “Young Australian” of the year N.T. is none other than  Kevin Kadirgamar, the proud grandson of the late Rajan Kadirgamar, M.V.O., A.D.C., Rear Admiral & for 10 years from 1960-1970, the longest serving “Captain of the Royal Ceylon Navy”.
 

FADED LOVE



Dear members & readers of eLanka, I have been extremely fortunate to meet, and, in turn, introduce all of you to Bernard VanCuylenberg, another good Dutch Burgher from Lanka, who, in my opinion, is a “Superb writer of Stories”, in poetic vein, “Bernard Van, is a man, who certainly can”.

There are not too many “writers” who are perfectionists.

Bernard is one of them and his expertise can now be shared by all of us. Every “story” coming in from Bernard will, of course, bear his name, as the writer. We are indeed lucky to have him write for us.  Desmond Kelly.
