Jaffna Sees True Light of DEEPAVALI after Thirty Years
[Updated :: 2010-11-06 12:05:51 Hours]


Jaffna town burnt by the flames of war in the recent past was illuminated by the light of peace, hope and prosperity on the Night of DEEPAVALI when the Security Forces-Jaffna (SF-J) joined Jaffna civilians in celebration of the festival of religious significance.

Main roads in the town were lit up with many thousands of coconut oil lamps placed by the Jaffna soldiers together with city dwellers. Sounds of crackers burnt by joyous crowds reverberated the air for minutes as the people walked along the illuminated streets to feel the real sense of DEEPAVALI after thirty years. The selected area lit up with lamps once served as a ground for heavy fighting during the effort of Security Forces to eliminate the LTTE terrorists who dragged the ordinary life into anarchy and disarray.

Two senior priests of venerated Nallur Hindu Temple, Commander Security Forces-Jaffna Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe as the Chief Guest, Government Agent Jaffna Mrs. Imelda Sukumar and Brigadier General Staff SF-J Brig. B.C.J.A.F. Rodrigo participated the lighting of lamps near the Headquarters 51 Division in Jaffna town.

This year’s festival signifies the progress that the peninsula has achieved in the fields of economic and social development during a short span of time with the end of the war.

Finale of the day’s celebration was marked with a grand musical extravaganza organized close to the Weerasingham Hall. The famous “Agni” group performed until midnight to entertain thousands of fans.
