Grand Musical Fiesta Organized by Army Thrills Thousands of Pallai Civilians

[2013-04-30 21:30:20]

Enthralling performances of rhythmic dances and melodies of music and singing thrilled the audience of civilians when the 55 Division organized a mega musical extravaganza at Pallai public ground on 29th evening to mark the Sinhala and Hindu New Year cultural festival 2013. “Seeduwa Sakura”, a popular music group of the island played unplugged for vocalists who sang famous Sinhala and Tamil sings to entertain thousands of civilians who cried in joy and danced to tune of “Seeduwa Sakura.”

The 55 Division of the Security Forces – Jaffna (SF-J) sponsored this grand musical fiesta to strengthen the cordial relations prevailing between the Army and the civilians. Another significant motive of organizing this show was to drive away dark memories of unpleasant experience that brought sufferings to people on the North for more than thirty years due to LTTE violence. Pallai is one of the worst terrorist-hit areas of which daily life was totally crippled keping the development under government projects away from the area.

Several ex-LTTE combatants reintegrated after undergoing the government’s rehabilitation programme also showed their artistic talents in public on that musical evening. It is the fervent hope of the Army that these types of Civil-Military Coordination (CIMIC) activities will promote sustainable peace through healthy civil-military relations.

On invitation of the General officer Commanding 55 Division Brigadier Ajith Wijesinghe, Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, gracing the occasion as Chief Guest, donated brand new push bicycles to 10 Pallai students who got good results in GCE O/L examination 2012. School uniforms for 30 Grade 5 scholarship winners and solar power panels for five more students were also donated by the SF-J Commander and other invited guests during the same function.

Rev. Kaneeshwara Kurukkal of Pallai Amman Hindu Temple, Rev. Fr. J. Jesuratnam of Champianpattu church, DIG Northern Province Mr. I. Karunaratne, MOH of Pallai hospital Dr. Mrs. Sivanathan Maithili and senior officials of government and private institutes were also among the invited guests.

Northern Province Transport Board had arranged special transport facilities for the civilians arriving in the venue.
