Professors of Education: Continuation note of Previoust Essay

it is little difficult to find something unconnected or disconnected with each other , or irrelevancies in anything of yesteryear or of any incidents of personal lives happened, took place, in this part or that corner of world.
Sometimes i feel past is very well connected with present and sometimes you may feel that the past or present is an extension of both.

Education is not an isolated phenomenon. The subject it self is not only vast and massive but also very well connected or interconnected, interrelated with many other phenomenon; unique or independent.

when you talk of something independent, situation, incident of present, unknowingly or unconsciously you may connect it with something happened in the past.  when you discuss or talk of something present or of someone present that doesn't mean you have forgotten the other valuable things, events or about people in general.  the problem that we all, mostly face is not only as challenges or as human creatures is to fight against time, memory or space, according to my understanding.

so when you start writing something, you may forget some other, most important, relevant, must talk or discuss facts of life, of people, individuals. sometimes that is perhaps 'it is the way that the human mind acts or reacts to certain things of life, particular incidents of ones life, and it is something that you can independently discuss as one big subject 'mind and memory'. often it is a matter of ones age.

i like how some analyze human mind. i like the way how explains thing about human mind ,brain or about any human organs. Professor Nandadasa Kodagoda is one of the respectable doctors of this land with not only very genuine knowledge of his subject also of the way he interacted with the community he dealt with. how he explained things to his subject 'medicine' is amazing. i remember how he always relate his discussions with the teachings of the doctrine of Buddhism.

Professor Kalo Fonseka is one of my favorite analysts of human brain that i have read about and have listened to, in this era of my living.

though the subjects they discuss or analyze is independent or unique to each other that does not mean you cannot enter all the subject they talk of or discussed isn't belonged to the main subject called ' Education' or 'knowledge'. any subject that exist in the world is a bead of a well connected chain'.

Professor Senarath Panawithana. Who does not know about him? i don't know whether i should call him an Archeologist, a Historian, an Educationist, or an Artist or technologist when think of the sub subjects that he mainly associated with. The Sigiriya Frescoes and the importance of the findings related to the 'Kingdom of Sigiriya of King Kashyapa are huge and massive. Professor Senaka Bandaranayake is the big brain that comes to my mind next to Professor Paranavithana.

their continuous research is our wealth i like to believe.

please do not try to devalue what i write  because if i write something i try my best to give it a fullest value specially about the personalities of our land. i don't think that i exaggerate the knowledge of these massive tall personalities, for me they are massive.

let me walk around a bit in the passages of University of Peradeniya. one of the most difficult decision that i had to take in my life was choosing Sociology as my main subject giving up history. Professor Siriweera comes in to my mind. He was undoubtedly a master brain of Ancient history of our country.

one of the reasons that i wanted to continue history as a subject was mainly the way Professor Gamini Keerawella injected ' the facts of modern history in to my brain'. he was one of the friendliest Lecturers we had.  Professor Keerawella is the Head of Department of History, Faculty of Arts, University of Peradeniya.

just because my topic is about professors of education, it limits my thoughts and essay to a certain extent . Professor Sirisena was the Professor who captained the department of Sociology when we were students of Sociology. i believe Professor H.M.D.K Herath is the present captain of the Department. he was not a doctor of sociology or professor back then but a close teacher of students.

let me come back to the Open University of Nugegoda, Sri Lanka.

Professor Thanaraj is a massive personality who has gained his skills and knowledge not following any detours or short cuts and pastes of Education. let me take this opportunity to respect his 'wills' , dedication, contribution to the area of education.

Professor Lekamge is a complete sincere package of knowledge and a wealth to the Faculty of Education and to the University.

i might need to continue this essay on another day because this land is not just filled with titles or certificates of knowledge, the land is treasured with huamn brains with huamn hearts.

to be continued .....................
