Knowing Sri Lanka – Flyer to Flying!

“Knowing Sri Lanka” program launched by the Sri Lankan Consulate in Kerala is all set to enter the first phase of its implementation. In the first leg of the tour, ten students and equal number of teachers are going to make their dream come true of flying abroad to one of the most beautiful nations in the world. First of its endeavor of sorts by any Consulate in India, the Chief Minister of Kerala as also the Education Minister will be seeing off the students at the Legislative Assembly in Thiruvananthapuram. The reciprocation of the gesture at the highest level in the Government enshrines the significance of this event for both the nations. Similarly, elaborate arrangements have been made for receiving the students at the International Airport in Colombo as also for their further program.


For me, the success of this event is bound to set the background for many more confidence building measures between the two nations. Not only that this programme will entail the students to a glimpse of the island nation but also will go a long way in allaying the much articulated misconceptions and fallacies. Let us hope that the programme turns out to be a stupendous success.
