    One of legend whom I respect very much. One day I saw him seated alone on one of the concrete benches at the University of Colombo looking at the empty sports grounds and practicing a song. May HIS soul RIP.

    We lost the icon of contemporary music in Sri Lanka, Arguably it will take a century to replace him. May he attend nirvana.

    I don't have words to express my thoughts and my heart has stopped virtually. Every one will talk about his incredible service to the country: inspiration for the generations to come... But, such a humble human being, I will never see in my life time again... Obata Niwan Suwa pathami...!
