Recipe for Avurudu peace

Thoughts on National New Year

Take one kilo of generosity, wash well, paring off all traces of greed, if any. Add salt and water. Place it on the fire. Sprinkle bits of good humour while cooking.

Once the generosity has been well absorbed, pour the milk of human kindness and stir well. When well cooked, take off the fire.

Now lay out with patience on a clean plaintain leaf. When well set, cut it into diamond shaped pieces. Arrange the pieces with a dash of good spirits and place on table.

There it is: the milk rice, bubbling once again with thoughts of compassion and cheerfulness, ready to be consumed at the auspicious hour on the Sinhala and Tamil New Year day with joy, peace and harmony.

Amara Samaratungq, Dehiwela
