New  As a nation we have been celebrating few festivals since our history. Sinhala and Hindu New Year Festival is one of valuable and interesting festival among them, which is celebrated, based on Sun. King Rawana was a power full and human friendly ruler according to historical factors. In their period they had called sun as their god by dint of it; they might have started to celebrate New Year Festival in their era. New Year festival is celebrated based on astrological factors that have added strong meaning to it to show its value to human.

The dawn of the New Year is based on the Sun’s astrological movement from the Hose of Pisces (Meena Rashiya) to the House of Aries (Mesha Rashiya). According to astrological calculation New Year arises in mid of April month that the main reason to celebrate New Year festival in middle of April. Other important factor is Farmers complete all their cultivation and collect fresh harvest before this day so they have an ability to celebrate this event with fresh foods and without straggling with any financial issue. Before the New Year day people clean their houses and purchase new equipment and cloths, especially people buy new clay pot to prepare milk rice. When they make arrangements for this movement Sinhala & Tamil people who have been celebrating this special day since history, believe that, this is the best day to renew their all relations and activities with others.

Customs are the main function in the New Year Day, which have to follow each and every family without rejecting or changing. Before the New Year day we do 1st custom, it is called bath for Old Year. This is very rare in current society.  Using Ayurveda medicate people bath. At the Punaya Kalaya People uses to go to Temple and do religions activities.  After the dawn of New Year as a 1st custom, Milk rice is prepared according to given astrological time This is the time whole nation makes milk rice at same time, that can be identified as a characteristic of peacefully and equality of country, then as next custom we do some transaction with well to respect water which help to do our cultivation. Some people plant new plant also, we warship our parents and do some financial transaction with them and people eat prepared milk rice with their family. Aurudu customs are ending with Hisathel Geme event which is normally organized by monk in the village temple.

To celebrate New Year Festival different kinds of sweets are prepared, such as Kavum (Small oil cake), Kokis, Aluwa , Mung Keum and many other sweets. Those sweets are prepared using rice flour and suger, actually taste is supper. Visiting neighbor houses and exchanging sweets is one of major activity in New Year period, which may help to renew their relationship with people.

With the modern society, people have neglected these valuable customs because those things directly help to change over attitudes and to success human life with good qualities especially family relationship. So we have to think about those things if need to share value of peaceful family with our next generation it may cause to reduce conflicts between children and parents.

My Grandfather was a great man who had consisted with great knowledge about society, Damma, History of country and etc. When I was a child, I had a habit to listen his nice stories. Kind Dutugamunu story which I have published here is one of great story. This is not copied from any book.  This one might different with published books.

The king Dutugamunu was a one of great person who ruled Sri Lanka more than 24 years.  King Kawanthissa and Queen Viharamahadevi were his mother and father. They named their newly born son as Duttagamini Abaya. When he was a child there were tons of arguments with his father about Anuradhapura kingdom ruler Elara. Discussion and arguments were going on with the time but King Kawanthissa wanted to carry on peaceful mechanism to govern the country so he did not try to start attacks with choler King Elara. As a result of his father’s method Duttagamini was suffered and finally he decided to send women’s clothes and jewelries to his father. After saw those things king got angry and order to arrest his son.

Queen Viharamadevi wanted to protect his son from father’s decision therefore she asked his son to leave from palace while handing rice pack. Accepting her request he decided to go Kothmale. While he was walking to Kothmale, he waited near to small cannel and ready to eat rice packet. Before he ate, thought that if I become as king of Sri Lanka this anchovy should swim by releasing one sprat in to water. Incident was happed. Then again he thought if I become as a king of Sri Lanka this rice should grow by putting rice that occasion also happed.

In consequence of his safety without indicates his actual name and family he behaves as a farmer. After King Kawanthissa’s death, kingdom needed to find Duttagamini to appoint as their next king to rule their regime. They used their Royal Tusker to find him. As a result of their findings they were able to find him, while he was furrowing paddy. Because of that occasion people may say “ Mada Sodagath Goviya Rajakamatath Sudusui” as a Sinhala statement. He was coronation as Dutugamunu. Then his duty was started by organizing people around the country.

While he had been attacking against King Elara for several years he had lost some times. One day  he  lost war and  he went small house in Mahiyangana area for his safety. There was an old women and she offered hot rice to eat him without knowing about him. Because of hot rice he ate without any proper order. She said that, your eating was equal to King Dutugamunu’s war so you have to eat rice with a proper order. He was able to apply her advice to win the war with King Elara.

Final war was held in Wijithapura in Anuradhaoura, that was the kindom of cholar king Elara’s . After that Dutugamunu became as the king of Sri Lanka and he ruled the country 24 years.
