Pre school games in Sri Lanka
My head is a kaleidoscope of images; the children at Trinco as we walked up the steps between them; the excited faces of the parents as they crowded round the classroom to share in what was happening; the frail figure of Mrs Nadarajah as she watched over her boys and the almost palpable love they feel for her; the laughing faces at the Deaf and Dumb Association as they created signing names for each of us. I shall remember the skill and tirelessness of the drivers, Sudha and the Happy song, Janaka, always smiling as he helped Danny and especially Ranga constantly looking after us. Most of all I feel privileged to have shared in a small part of these people’s lives and humbled by the contrast between their meagre material possessions and the huge joy and generosity they show.
