Customs and Traditions
 
Customs and Traditions

Simple English Wikipedia says “A custom (also called a tradition) is anything which lots of people do, and have done for a long time. Usually, the people come from the same country, culture, time or religion. If something is usually done the same way, you might say that is the "customary way" of doing things. The meaning of culture is similar to the meaning of custom. A custom is more about practices, while culture is more about ideas or a group of customs. A custom overall is just similar to culture and culture means the way of life of a people.

We must as be associated with literature or music or paintings or drama or photography or what ever the aesthetic aspect we like because it can cure your work stress, your tension, your tiredness….

Empowering the Home Builders - Building Clinic Goes Island Wide

Many who invest their precious money in a dream home are unaware of the procedures they should follow or the guidance, advice and services they should seek from professionals before embarking on a domestic construction. their ignorance or reluctance to employ qualified persons compel them to depend on traditional knowledge or guidance opined by building traders, masons, carpenters or even astrologers and often fall a victim particularly under complex situations where constraints in land extent, terrain, subsoil or the environment etc. prevail.

Can EMD Locomotives make a Comeback on Sri Lankan Rails?

Mention the Class M2 locomotive in Sri Lankan railway circles and railwaymen and rail fans alike will run out of superlatives in heaping praise on this iconic piece of machinery. Their advent on the island’s rails way back in 1954 heralded a new era in the history of rail transportation in the country. The first five locomotives came as aid from Canada under the Colombo Plan. Due to their exceptional performance more were ordered later, until the class grew to a strength of fourteen.
