University students are usually known for their radical militancy and their clashes with the authorities exemplified by the situation in Sri Lanka where over the years our campuses
have been hotbeds of student violence. Be that as it may, our Daily News Horana correspondent was witness to a change in this popular conception of university students
that belied this reputation, when the university students of Horana took time off to share some moments with residents of the Horana Elders’ Home on Vesak Day and made this day a pleasurable and exciting one for these lonely feeble persons spending the evening of their lives in quiet solitude. Members of the Sri Lanka Graduates’ Society, Horana, also took it upon themselves to wash shave, bathe and clean the residents and dress them up in fresh clothing. The graduates then presented them with new clothes, soap, tooth-paste and other needs. This was followed by a tea party hosted by the graduates. There were more than 50 residents at this Elders’ Home who were deeply moved by this kind and meritorious act. Later, they all joined together in a sing-song.
