For the past five years, the Jaffna and Colombo communities have been tied in a ceremonial bond through a celebrated cricket tournament between Ananda College Colombo and Jaffna Hindu College under the rubric ‘Sivagurunathan Memorial Challenge’. 

A unique encounter between the two beacons of Hindu and Buddhist educational institutions in Sri Lanka, this union between the two schools can be dubbed as a most futuristic attempt towards positive change. This tournament will be held on Sunday, May 1 at Nalanda College Grounds at 9:30 a.m.

This year, the English debate for the ‘Panikkar–Thanabalasingham Challenge’, in memory of two senior teachers who excelled in teaching science and encouraging English at Ananda, will be held in connection with the tournament along with the celebratory banquet where the presentation of awards will be held. 

The debate is scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 30 at the Lakshman Kadiragamar Institute at 5:00 p.m. The celebratory banquet dinner is scheduled to be held on May 1 at The Kingsbury at 7:00 p.m.  

What is new in the banquet this year will be its latest addition. This year, the banquet will take the novel form of a business forum in which eminent champions of industry from both schools will make their presence under the patronage of the chief guest, Supreme Court Chief Justice K. Sripavan, who himself is an alumnus of Jaffna Hindu College.
