Year 2017 becomes the quasquicentennial anniversary of the Ceylon Tea industry. The Colombo Tea Traders' Association, the apex body of the industry, in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Tea Board, the state regulatory agency for the industry, will conduct a comprehensive programme to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Ceylon Tea with several celebratory events throughout the year. The celebrations commenced in January from the head office at the Tea Board, with the unveiling of a sculptured bust of James Taylor, the Scotsman who arrived in Ceylon in 1847 mainly to grow coffee.

A particular planter appeared to have been disturbed for calling the Ceylon Tea Traders Association (CTTA) as the "Apex body of the Industry" in my article on 1 July 2017 on the Sesquicentennial of the Ceylon Tea Industry. He wrote to me enquiring the reason for using such a phrase, stating that the CTTA was created long after the tea industry. Responding to his query, I replied stating that the CTTA was formed 27 years after the commercial cultivation of tea commenced, for the specific purpose of regulating and monitoring the tea trade, at the request of the producers of tea, who were confined to their plantations, and in any case, had no knowledge or experience in the marketing or exporting of the product.

My friend Asoka Jayawardena in New Jersey who often despatches vital information on health matters sent me an interesting brief on 'Moringa' (Murunga) with a request to write an article on the subject and, if possible, to get it published in a Sinhala newspaper, as the advantages of a Sinhala publication would be far more beneficial to the average Sri Lankan reader.

Awesome Public Response

Wednesday, 12 Apr 2017 15:06

Only when something comes up in print or exposed on television, people who have been affected by the highlighted topic(s) will emerge out of their shells to either join public protests or respond with their type of experiences (as feedbacks). The Saturday Column on 11 March, in Ceylon Today, on "Bogus Pharmacists galore" managed to bring out mind-blowing responses from various members of the public with their own personal experiences; some even with good advice to improve the pathetic situation of bogus pharmacies where the health of innocent and naïve people has been affected by wrong medicine given by unqualified 'pharmacists.'
