Sri Lanka Central Cultural Fund performs miracles with five rupees

A news item in state-owned Sunday newspaper The Silumina said that Sri Lanka government has commenced a special project to conserve the ola leaf ancient manuscripts that are found in the temples island wide.

The same story said that there are estimated around one million ola leaf ancient manuscripts in temple libraries.

Do you know the fund allocated to this 'special' project. Rs. five million, no less.

Five rupees per manuscript, if all are conserved. Fifty rupees per manuscript, if 10% of the manuscripts are conserved.

The control board of the Central Cultural Fund has taken this decision under the guidance of the Prime Minister D.M. Jayarathna.

Wonder of Asia doing miracles with five rupees!

We hope the authorities will set aside more money for this as same as what they do for things like purchasing vehicles.
