Professors of Education: for the name of ' Mr. Sugathapala Senarath Yapa'

And also for the Hearts of Hantana, Muditha & Samanthi, Suramya & Balasuriya, Thalagune & Eeshika in particular, and to all who respect Hantana now and then ..................... 

Mr. Sugathapala Senarath Yapa is a Well Known Director of Cinema. He owns the patent license of Introducing Giants to the Sinhalese Artistic cinema. Few of the memorable creations of his talent factory are as follows; Hantane Kathawa (The Story of Hantana), Minisa saha Kaputa ( Th,e man and the Crow), Pembara Madhu (Dear Madhu) , Induta Mal Mitak (A hand full of flowers for Indu)

Few of the Giantly talented Artists of Sinhalese Cinema who were introduced by the Director were, Mr. Vijaya Kumanaranathunge, Mr. Amarasiri kalansooriya, Mrs. Samanthi Lenarol

let me talk about few professors that always capture the hearts and minds of not only of Sri Lankans also of Globe. 'Professor Amara Ranathunge' to begin with this essay. Wife of veteran Singer, Artist ' Mr. Dayaratne Ranathunge'. she is a researcher of many Folk Music Corners of this country, Asia, and of Globe. She was working attached to  a Foreign University and i hope she is back in the country. But i don't think that she has stopped the way she worked earlier, still contributing to Research in the field of folk music in particular. she is a well known artist specially in Classical Music and the first ever Professor of her field in the Country.  let me say this lady, how much i respect her from the bottom of my heart. 

Hantane Kandu Munduna sisaara pawanak wee ennam
obey suwanda rendi kutiya sameepe pawanak wee innam

will come as a breeze , touching the entire Mountain of Hantana
as a breeze,will reside, near the room that fills with the fragrance of yours  
 ( song is sung by Mastro W.D.Aamardewa) 

The song takes me around the Stories of Hantana that i have heard and read before. 

Let me now move on to the Professor of Hantana ( for me) Professor Ediriweera sarachchandra one of the Most talented  hearts of Sinhalese 'Arts' as a whole. ( Academic personality, Artists, Dramatist, Novelist etc.) The Epic poem 'Maname' is the most acclaimed drama of local arts arena, crafted so genuinely by Professor Sarachchandra 

Professor Sunil Ariyaratne. Professor of all in one type. Lecturer, Director of Cinematography, Lyricists etc. The Series of songs written and the Movies already directed and produced and Yet to be released, the value, the importance of contribution to the Local art arena is unexplainable, due to lack of terms and words of my vocabulary.  

Professor J.B. Dissanayake Giant and a popular lecturer, Author, etc. etc. i love the small DVD produced for small children to learn the Alphabet in Musical mode. i, believe that has a series of DVDs the young teachers, parents, any individuals, groups who are interested in Early in Early childhood Development can easily Purchased it and use as a tool kit to improve your child's not only vocabulary but also rhythms of life. 

and i love the Book 'Ape Gama' (if my memory is accurate and up to date the way that i titled it is not incorrect) written by professor Dissanayake.

Professor Kusuma Karunaratne too is a massive Lady in the education field once headed the Department of Sinhalese language of the University of Colombo. Am i right madam? She is still active in the field as exactly as those days. i have no doubts 

i believe thanks to many artistic brains of the country, we manage to sustain the Local not only folk, traditional dancing heritages but also the culture attached to it. i take this opportunity to thank professor Mudiyanse Dissanayake, professor of Traditional Dances of the country in particular. 

For all hearts of Hantana what i write is no strange. The Arts theater (AT) of the Faculty of Arts, and the Sarachchandra Open Theater of Drama of The University of Peradeniya are witnessing everything of Arts and crafts, heritages of our Country. 

My mind goes back to the day that i watched Hantane Kathawa at the Arts Theater of University of Peradeniya, for the first time in my life. 

And my mind, thoughts, inevitably wanders around the mountain of Hantana with the friends of yesteryear. The feelings and the thoughts that captured my heart for about nearly 20 years, i can still freshly feel and touch in its fresh and original thinking. 

The Hantana, the Memorable institute to learn about any Fauna and flora, the valleys, about moistures of life, is, i feel changing my oldest thoughts in to a young.

( Thank you Sunday Lankadeepa (08/ 02/ 2015) for refreshing my mind on Hantane Kathawa, composing an interview about the veteran director Mr. Sugathapala Senarath Yapa.)
