It all started off with an enthusiasm, where I simply wanted to build an app where at allows people to view photography published on Facebook, which later turned out to become a large scale project. In simple words Project Sri Lankan Photography is a Centralized portal for viewing and showcasing Sri Lankan Photography. View and Showcase all Sri Lankan Photography that are published on facebook in one single place, right in-front of your fingertips.

Photography in Sri Lanka…

Photography is one of the very famous field in Sri Lankan, where its adoption keeps on growing with a huge number of new Photographers. A lot of photographers are publishing their amazing hard work, their photography, on the biggest Social Media Network, Facebook. But how many people actually follow them? How much publicity could you reach? As there are so many

Photography Pages, how could one individual person reach them at once? Or even be aware of them? Therefore we came up with this simple solution, a centralized portal for viewing all Sri Lankan Photography, “Sri Lankan Photography”! There are so many Sri Lankan Photographers who has published their amazing photographs online on the biggest Social Media Network, Facebook, but there is still no one place to access all those photography.

We saw this burning need, So we came up with a Solution…

the Amazing Sinhala Language <3 !

Most of us Sri Lankans don’t know this, but Sinhala language is one of the most complex and evolved languages ever existed, so as Tamil language !
Why do you think us Sri Lankans whoever is fluent in Sinhala has the ability to learn and speak any language very easily with the exact native pronunciations of them ? Its because Sinhala is comprised with every single syllable possible, the language itself has prepared us with almost every single way of pronunciation without us knowing.
Why do you think Japanese, Chinese, German or Russian natives have such a different accent when they speak in English, but us Sri Lankans could speak in the very exact native accent of English ? Thats the amazing beauty of Sinhala language. Though it is much ignored by the current society, whereas people think speaking in your native language is a shame, or a ‘gode-kama’ ! Sigh ! Just pure stupidity and western colonization mindset of Sri Lankans !

– Just thought of noting down the above few words while going through the below article,

http://matadornetwork.com/abroad/5-beautiful-endangered-alphabets/

You… the people have the Power !

the Kingdom of God is within Man !
not one Man or a group of Men…
but in All Men !
in You !
You… the people have the Power,
the power to create Machines !
the power to create Happiness !
You… the people have the Power,
to make this life Free and Beautiful !
to make this life a Wonderful Adventure !
