Rain and Water

Rain and Water
Annual pageant in Kandy is related more to rain gods than religion.
The end of it is marked by Water Cutting ceremony at Gatambe.
Gata Ambe mean unripe mango.
I am not sure how the name came about.
There could have been a Mango tree instead of a pipel (Bo) tree thre.
Water is revered and no wonder why America wanted it to be a barter for debt relief.
Water is going to be more expensive than petrol in the near future with the population explosion making more and more demand for drinking water.
It was very notable it rained on the very day they had the KAP (Tree-Flag)ceremony.
Now we need to be more vigilant to protect it from commercial exploitation.
