Some historians believe the term li was first used by artists of ancient China who mined and cut jade, a gemstone cherished to this day throughout China. One of the enduring difficulties in carving jade into figures and decorative designs is its tendency to crack along natural contours. Some historians speculate that these lines along which the stone would gracefully and naturally crack were once called the li of the stone. The craver’s great challenge was to incorporate this tendency to break along elegant lines into a work of art, thus producing a work of beauty that relied inherently on the stone’s natural li. This original carver’s skill of bringing forth the natural beauty of the jade evolved over many centuries into a collection of techniques for sawing, cutting, sanding, and polishing jade. These techniques were handed down from teacher to student over the centuries as a body of wisdom also called li. 
Eventually the term li came to signify any social ritual intended to reveal the natural decency and goodness of being human. So it is from these –the carver’s hand, the natural elegance of jade, and Confucius’s love of humanity that we can learn to be decent by cultivating li.

In (Sri Lanka) we have been issued with an absolutely useless piece of equipment namely, Wait for it! THE MONSOON CAPE useless because when wearing it, you could do nothing, but ride a bicycle, which we did not have. You actually got wetter and stickier from your own sweat, in a downpour than if you let the cooling monsoon rain pour off your shoulders.
Added to this cape the Officers had the, Ahem! added nicety of a HOOD, which we as the other ranks had not. Of course, even in such a downpour, no Officer would put his hood up, over his cap, as the CO had not covered his cap with his hood. All of a sudden the CO must have thought of the cost of the replacement of his cap and says to his aide-de-camp Jim Page. Jim! Jim! put up me 'ood; put up me 'ood! Jim rushes to obey. No one had thought of the amount of rain that this monsoon will have decant on to us mortals, serving the King.
In raising the hood, Jim deluges the CO with (I would estimate) a good half bucket of rainwater. There you are, within six to ten feet in front of the CO, looking him in the face, where this "Keystone cops" retake is being enacted. Laugh, You dare not. Have you ever felt the pain in your stomach in suppressing a hearty laugh? It is really painful indeed. A wag once said the "Nearest thing a male can have, to giving birth" perhaps he was right, as I experienced this on several occasions during the war or have I a warped sense of humour. I can still visualise this episode at 85 years of age, it has not lost any of its comedy for me, if that is the right word. Perhaps I will be allowed to tell another story at another time.

Saturday, 15 May 2010 UK-Sri Lanka team explores Indian Ocean link
A new collaboration between a consortium of UK and Sri Lankan institutions has been initiated to study early maritime subsistence and trade in Sri Lanka. The collaboration brings together researchers and students from the universities of Oxford, UCL, and Ruhuna with the Post-Graduate Institute of Archaeological Research and the Sri Lankan Department of Archaeology. A first fieldwork season was recently conducted, investigating coastal midden and port sites, as well as inland shelters. The project aims to better understand the emergence of coastal communities, regional trade and long-distance contacts, though the application of a suite of new techniques to the extraordinary but still poorly known Sri Lankan record. Preliminary results are providing insights into the spread of crops and commensal species, as well as Sri Lanka’s role in the spice trade.



The project is being undertaken as part of the Oxford-based Sealinks Project and the UCL-based Early Rice Project. Students from the University of Ruhuna participated in an associated field school.

“On leaving the island of Andaman and sailing for 1,000 miles a little south of west, the traveler reaches, Ceylon, which is undoubtedly the finest island of its size in all the world.” Marco Polo
Nowhere is another land, while the land is so compact, such vibrant diversity & a multitude of variety that would appeal to the voyagers, travelers, tourists and the inhabitants themselves. I shall not attempt to describe, nor will I weaken the reality of historical heritage and legendary beauty of my land by taking such a daunting task upon myself, a mere simpleton. I, a native of my land, who enjoyed the good fortune to tour my land island-wide since the age of eight with my maternal grandfather, Ayurveda Dr. Prangige Silmon Peter Gunaratne of Lakshapatiya, Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, herein would simply yet proudly elaborate upon the comments made by the visitors to my land.

What is Sri Lanka Holidays?

“Why, that’s the place Sinbad Visited”. Eugene Wright (American, 1928)

Sri Lanka Holidays is touring Luxury Holidays in the ancient Indian Ocean Tropical Island of resplendent Sri Lanka, the “Land of Delights”, a World Class Tourist Destination where the Total Holiday Experience (THE) is revealed to your heart’s content. To Portuguese Captain Joao Ribeiro (1658- 1676) the island of Sri Lanka was the loveliest parcel of land the Creator has placed upon this earth. Then again, Sri Lanka Holidays has been the least promoted world class tourist destination in the world. Given the propensity, “any other land” would have exploited the tourism potential to the hilt. With due respect to those who worked hard and in contempt of those in authority who didn’t, it goes without saying, Sri Lanka has utterly failed in promoting Sri Lanka Holidays: in that sense too, Sri Lanka, with apologies to Marco Polo, is a “Land like no other”. The slogan that cuts both ways was discarded by the tourism authorities of Sri Lanka only to make way for another bureaucratic bungle: “small miracle” in the year 2009. Sri Lanka isn’t a small miracle, it’s a phenomenon. The second slogan was dropped too within a couple of months.
“Dear me, it is beautiful! And most sumptuously tropical”, Mark Twain (American novelist, year 1896)

Where is Sri Lanka Holidays?

Franciscan Bishop, John de Marignolli, Legate (to Peking -1338-1353) of Pope Clement 1 was assured that the terrestrial paradise is only 40 Italian miles away from Sri Lanka’s “Adam’s Peak”. And just across the “Adam’s Bridge” is Sri Lanka.

The Pearl shaped tropical island of Sri Lanka, the Pearl of Indian Ocean is located south of the southern tip of India 20 miles across the Palk Straits, across now ruined and submerged prehistoric “Adam’s Bridge”, according to the Indian epic Ramayana, built by non human beings named Vanara. The island is set in the low latitudes between 6° and 10° with Indian Ocean all around resulting in typical maritime-tropical vicissitude: monsoon rains, palms, woods, rivers and waterfalls. From the Point Pedro, the northernmost beach of Sri Lanka to the Point Dondre, the southern most Beach of Sri Lanka, as the crow flies, is only 270 miles. The next beach, if you wish to swim across, is where Captain Titus Oats (1880-1912) gave his life to save his friends, but in vain.

How do you begin Sri Lanka Holidays?
“We begin with the city of Colombo, because it is the Emporium of the whole Island” Captain Joao Ribeiro (1658- 1676)

Sri Lankan Airlines the National Carrier of Sri Lanka, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Lufthansa, Kuwait Airways, British Airways and an array of International carriers take you to Sri Lanka Holidays. And in turn, Sri Lanka Holidays take you by surprise even before you land at Colombo’s Bandaranayake’s International Airport (CMB) at Katunayake, Negambo, Western coast, 27km north of Colombo: the Indian ocean, the beach, the large seawater lagoon, the vast coconut groves, then the beach and you are on the runway. Imagine the seascape & landscape in your descend from 30,000 feet to the ground. No, don’t imagine, visit Sri Lanka Holidays. Spent your Holidays in Sri Lanka, enjoy Sri Lanka Holidays with Riolta Lanka Holidays (Pvt.) Ltd., Colombo, Sri Lanka. We reveal for you to revel. This is My Sri Lanka, Your Island.

For who is Sri Lanka Holidays?
“Ceylon, like Cleopatra is of infinite variety”. William Hull (American, 1953)

Sri Lanka Holidays is for everybody: each one & every one with his own interests & activities finds his stream in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka Holidays has something to offer to all the guys and dolls across the wide spectrum of humanity. Sri Lanka Holidays is for the Beach Holiday seekers; then again Sri Lanka Holidays is for the ornithologists and keen birders; then again for the wildlife enthusiasts; then again for the activists of sustainable ecological system; also for those who hunts for eco-oriented resorts; also for those seek refuge, relaxation & rejuvenation in the Hill station retreats such as Nuwara Eliya, Bandarawela, Hatton, Haputale, Ella, Diyatalawa and Badulla of salubrious climate; and equally well for those who fall in love head over heels with ancient yet living cultures.

Sri Lanka Holidays is for the Beach Holidays seekers.
“There is no prettier sea-shore in the world, nor more beautiful surf.” Andrew Carnagie (American business tycoon, 1879)

During the main tourist season (October to April) the South western-southern coastal belt provides ideal Sri Lanka Holidays for beach holidays lovers beginning with  beach resorts at Wadduwa and running along to Kalutara, Beruwala, Bentota, Hikkaduwa, (all in the western coast ) and Galle, Unawatuna, Koggala, Weligama, Mirissa, Matara, Tangalla and Ambalangoda (all in the southern coast) all with vast coconut groves which grows to the water’s edge of Indian ocean in great luxuriance protecting you all from the tropical sun with ever Palm green shade, many tones of green & leafy shelter. You are the sunny holiday makers in the naturally well-sheltered beaches of Sri Lanka Holidays.

Such is the climate of the tropical island of Sri Lanka, any time during the year, we have a right beach for you all: April to September period is the season for Eastern coast. Arugambay bay beach is a world class surf beach where International surfing competitions are held; Nilveli & Kalkuda Bay Beach too are magnificent beaches of the Eastern coast.
This is the island in the sun, the tropical paradise, Sinbad of One thousand and one Arabian nights discovered then and holiday makers of Sri Lanka Holidays do discover now.

Sri Lanka Holidays is for birdlife enthusiasts.
“I shall always think of Ceylon as an Eden” Moncure Daniel Conway (American, 1883)

As the life begins with water, the lifeline of the fertile island of Sri Lanka, warmed by the tropical sun, watered by the two seasons of monsoon rains (South West monsoon rains during April to October and North East monsoon rains during November to January) is provided by the renovated ancient irrigation network of man-made rain water reservoirs. In addition to the reservoirs, the wet lands of Sri Lanka consist of natural wetlands: lagoons, Estuaries, Mangroves, rivers, streams, freshwater marshes, swam forests & Villus.
103 rivers flow out swiftly in radial pattern from the Central highlands, the mountainous core of the Island now down, then over the escarpments forming over 400 waterfalls (the highest is Bambarakanda (263m), Dunhida waterfalls (220m) is close to hill retreat of Bandarawela)  & rapids (the most famous is the tourist resort of Kitulgala white water rafting rapids) to slow down in the plains and then meander through the flood plains to feed thousands of ancient man-made rainwater reservoirs (the largest is Parakarama Samudra at the ancient capital of Polonnaruwa) then to the scenic deltas at the palm fringed pristine beaches of western coast, southern coast & eastern coast.

River Mahaweli with its source at Adam’s Peak flows down 335 km flows from the Central Highlands in a serpentine route over the Horton Plains, twisting around Kandy to the central plains reaching the one of the finest deep water natural harbors of the world at Trincomalee in the north eastern plains. Kelani River that originates in Sri Pada mountain range runs through the Central Highlands to meet the Indian Ocean at Colombo. The Walawe River that originates at Adam’s Peak and flows through 136 km of territories that gain the benefit of north-east monsoon a well as south-west monsoon flows into the Indian Ocean at the beaches of Ambalantota.

Water, water everywhere has made Sri Lanka Holidays one of the premier bird watching tourist destinations in Asia & frog capitals of the earth. The resident & migrants flocks of birds make up to 435 species in the tropical Sri Lanka Holidays. Wirawila Rainwater reservoir, Bundala Bird Sanctuary & Kalmetiya Bird Sanctuary are major bird life attractions.

Sri Lanka Holidays is for wild life enthusiasts.
“O great king the birds of the air and the beasts have an equal right to live and move about in any part of the land as thou.” Buddhist missionary Arhath Mahinda from India to King Devanam Piya Tissa of Sri Lanka (307-267 BC) at Mihintale 12 km east of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Anuradhapura.

The manifold natural beauty & immense diversity of tourist destinations of the island of Sri Lanka called Ceylon by the British, belies its size: with only 65,525 Sq. km it’s only half the size of England. Being a part of one of the 34 Bio Diversity Hotspot spots (Western Ghats of South Western India & Sri Lanka) in the world, 15% of the land is designated as wild life reserves and protected by Sri Lanka Wild Life protection Department. Sri Lanka Holidays set you up with the ideal Touring Holidays to see Asian elephant, Leopard & 84 other mammal species. Sri Lanka is home to the largest population of Asian elephants: Minneriya National Park, Wasgomuwa National Park, Uda Walawe National Park & Ruhuna Yala National Park are the kingdoms of elephants. Captive elephants are held at Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage close to Kandy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sri Lanka Holidays is for Scuba Diving enthusiasts.
Sri Lanka’s tropical seas afford fascinating scuba diving sites teeming with thousands of marine species around the island. Still more, the coral reef formations and caves around the island ranging from a depth of 5-40 meters are recreational in nature.Then the man made and bad weather sunken: over 200 ship wrecks scattered around the island enrich the experience of the scuba divers.
The best period for the Scuba Diving in the western coast is during the period of November to May while the best period for eastern coast is November to May.
Most of the southwestern scuba diving sites in Galle are only accessible through the PADI dive centers based in the fine bay beaches of Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna. The most exciting scuba diving sites of Sri Lanka is a 40km long reef called Basses [Portuguese: baxios meaning reef] [offshore of the coastal boundary of Ruhuna Yala National Park] where American teenagers Mark Smith and Bobby Kriegel supported by Mike Wilson, Rodney Johnklass discovered a sunken treasure in the year 1961 [read Indian Ocean Treasure: Arthur C. Clarke, 1974]. The jumping off point for the almost submerged twin reefs is the fishing village of Kirinda.
The fine beaches of Kalpitiya and Negombo (north of Colombo on the western coast), Beruwala, Bentota, Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna, Weligama of the south western coast and Trincomalee of the north eastern beach are the other main scuba diving sites of Sri Lanka Holidays.


Most of all, Sri Lanka Holidays is for the lovers of the world cultures.
“I am more and more delighted with this island and its people” Clara Kathleene Rogers (American, year 1903)

In the year 1515, overwhelmed by the beauty of the tropical island, Edward Barbosa, a Portuguese captain introduced the word Tennaserim meaning “The Land of Delights” in an ancient Indian language, to the island which had already been known by a string of names beginning from prehistoric and modern name Lanka (Sanskrit) to Heladiva (Sinhala), Tambapanni (Sinhala- 543 BC), Sinhaladvipa (Sinhala), Si-lan (Chinese) Taprobane (Greek), Serendib (Arabic) & then destined to be named Ceilo (Portuguese, 1505-1655), Zeilan (Dutch, 1656-1795) & Ceylon (English 1796-1948) only to come a full circle to Lanka in the year 1972, with the prefix Sri or Shri (Sanskrit) to be renamed Sri Lanka meaning “The Resplendent Island”. There goes the Sri Lanka Holidays. The ancient island nation’s archeological, historical & cultural attractions abound from north to south, west to east.

“In no other part of the world are there to be found within the same space, the remains of so many works of irrigation, which are, at the same time, of such antiquity and of such vast magnitude as Ceylon. Probably no other country can exhibit works so numerous, and at the same time so ancient and extensive, within the same limited area, as this island”
Colonial Governor of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Sir Henry Ward (1885- 1860)

The numerous cultural attractions set up Sri Lanka Holidays more like, with apologies to Dr. Arthur C. Clarke, a microcosm of India Holidays without hassle. The ancient capitals of Anuradhapura  and Polonnaruwa fell to the marauding Dravidian invaders from Southern India following the glorious era of 500 BC to 1200 AD. The lost cities of Anuaradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya (three of the 6 culture UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Sri Lanka), since being rediscovered by the colonial British rulers (1802-1948), homes to colossal cultural edifices have been renovated beginning with Ceylon’s first Commissioner of Archeology (1889- 1912) H.C. P. Bell (1851-1937), a British colonial civil servant, a man of unflagging energy and outstanding ability.

“The constructive and artistic genius of the Sinhalese race proceeded in the following century (i.e.2nd century B.C.) to develop the design to an extent not found elsewhere. The most important examples erected in Ceylon are comparable with the greatest pyramids of Egypt. The two largest dagobas at Anuradhapura surpass in contents and three exceeded in height all but the two enormous pyramids Khufru and Khafra at Gizah.”
Henry Parker: Ancient Ceylon

"Not one drop of water must flow into the ocean without serving the purposes of man"
King Parakramabahu the great (1164-1196 AD) of Lanka, the builder of rainwater reservoir "Sea of Parakrama" & numerous other reservoirs.

However the abandoned vast ancient irrigation networks in those lost kingdoms with thousands of rainwater reservoirs had been continuously reconstructed & renovated only following the formation of Irrigation Department of Ceylon’s under the leadership of H.T.S. Ward & Henry Parker in the year 1900, almost a century since British commenced ruling Ceylon. During the first fifty years since the establishment of Irrigation Department almost all the important ancient rainwater reservoirs & anicuts were restored including Minneriya close to Polonnaruwa, Kalawewa close to Sigiriya Lion Rock Citadel & Parakrama Samudra in Polonnaruwa of Sri Lanka Holidays.

How do you value the hospitality of Sri Lanka Holidays?
"The Buddhist monks on the mountain and elsewhere are very holy, though they have not the Faith... They welcomed me into their monasteries and treated me as one of their own". Franciscan Bishop John de Marignolis, Legate (to Peking) of Pope Clement .

Sri Lanka’s traditions of hospitality are legendary; its origins are entrenched in the 2553 years of recorded unbroken civilization of Sinhalese. Our doors are open; our people are all smiles Then again Sri Lanka Hotels hospitality of Sri Lanka Holidays is of international standard: contemporary, modern, eco-chic with high value superior service.

You can tour alone all over the island of Sri Lanka by public transport too, if you take a fancy to it. And ask help from our people any time, any day and they would respond with courtesy in words as well as in deeds.  But then, the hassle of public transport is not worth the trouble since cost of Rent a Car with driver, compared to most of the world class destinations, is affordable in Sri Lanka. We are your friends in need; visit Sri Lanka Holidays and tour with Riolta Lanka Holidays (Pvt.) Ltd., Sri Lanka.
