Sinhala New Year: then and now
The koha has been tweeting his sweet head off heralding the Sinhala and Tamil New Year. Now this last is a new one on me. We used to say Sinhala and Hindu New Year but fortuitously before writing this, I checked in a calendar and diary and lo and behold the Hindu of long ago has been changed to Tamil. No matter which name is used, since I am dealing with the customs the Sinhalese follow and how they’ve changed from then to now.
