    I first listen to you sing when I was a student at the University of Moratuwa. I can still remember the song you sang "Pawe Wala". It still lingers in my ears. Get well soon.

    In my teen years going to Ananda college I would have watched his “SA” musical more than ten times. He was the “Star” in Sinhala musical scene from mid seventies onwards. Can still vividly remember how passionately people rushed to see “SA” at “Navarangagala” at Royal college in the late seventies. Wish maestro the speediest recovery.
