    Whilst appreciating the fact that this gentlemen has saved animals and also had a blood donation camp which are fantastic things to do. But i wounder is giving this very lavish meal to all these people really the meaning of Poson Poya. Are we not supposed give to the poor, weak and needy. Whats the point of feeding people who have enough food already. This is just my point of view.

    Does not look like a traditional dansala to me, as it rather looks like a party or a wedding ...!!

    Looks like this one beats the Temple Trees Dan Sela as well.
