Turning the back on the setting Sun

Some people, according to a popular Sinhala proverb, have made it a habit to worship the rising Sun and turn their back on the setting Sun.

 


The main character in this story too is one that lends support to the veracity of this popular proverb. He held a very high post at provincial level under the previous regime. Even now he is holding a high post in an area of ancient 
kingdom fame.


Given his high post he is required to visit all districts in the province and recently he had to pay an official visit to Pulathisipura as well. This visit, in fact, had been organized by the heads of the local bodies in 
the area. 


Soon after setting out on the visit, this high-up had indicated to an organizer of the visit that he wanted to speak to him confidentially. He had told him: “When I arrive in your area, please don’t arrange even to offer me a cup of tea at … hotel because I don’t like to go to that place.”


In fact, he was referring to a hotel belonging to a certain well- known public figure.


So, on arrival in Pulathisipura, the high-up was hosted to tea at a hotel other than the one he had wanted to avoid. 
The high-up’s confidential request was in fact, amused the organizer in no small measure for he knew, had this high-up made this visit to Pulathisipura one and half years ago, he would not have stepped into any hotel other than the hotel he wanted to avoid on this visit!
