Rakhi or Raksha Bandhan is an auspicious occasion in the Hindu Calendar when sisters tie a sacred thread called ‘Rakhi’ on the wrist of their brothers and pray for their long life. It is widely celebrated as a festival across India and around the world.

Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music – the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself. Henry Miller

Visit to the reformed church of Srilanka, which is more than two centuries old is memorable. I liked the expanse of the space and the antique furniture. Among them, the best was the pipe organ, which is the first of it’s kind I have seen in my life. Who conceived the idea?, who made it?, where was it made?, how many of it’s kind are there in this world?, who all played it?, who taught them?, who transported it to Srilanka, How was it transported?…..who will have answers to these questions. If you happen to go to Srilanka, then you must see this church, which is very close to the Colombo airport.
