'56 ; an incomplete note.

Some days, some numbers, some years are important for people in many ways; personally or otherwise. some do not care about some numbers other than the birthdays of their loved ones and near ones. Some do not like to think of some days such as sad days but the days that brought them happiness. 

What comes into your mind when you think of the number 56? the house number of the address you live, the value or importance that the numerologists see in the number '56'?, the importance events or incidents happened in 1956 here in Sri Lanka and around the world? the decision to use Sinhalese Language as the official language? 

There are days that you can easily forget or cannot be forgotten easily. It depends on the closeness of the day,the importance of the dates to your personal or professional life. 

some days are socially, politically or culturally important for every nation across globe

Since August 1956, then government of Sri Lanka decided to use Sinhalese Language as official language. Therefore the year 1956 is marked  as a significant year in the political timeline of the country. The decision lead to change the overall Socio-cultural, Education, Political segments of the country that was already practiced in the mentioned segments. It was truly a very decisive factor according to my personal knowledge. Even today people here and there discuss things such as 'how it affected or affects the lives of the citizens of the country', including the uses , benefits, disadvantages of the decision. 

The Inaugural of the new parliament was held on 20 April 1956.  

On 4th February 1956, the report prepared on the 'situation of Buddhists / Buddhism in the country 'was submitted and released to the public. The report was submitted by the 'The Buddhist Commission' assigned by the all Island Buddhist Association (?) and was consisted of 192 pages.

i thought of reading the world calendar in 1956 to get a view on the incidents happened globally. Following information i copy pasted from the internet.

In 1956,    Jan 1, A new year event causes panic and stampedes at Yahiko Shrine, Yahiko, central Niigata, Japan, killing at least 124 people.

Jan 3, A fire damages the top part of the Eiffel Tower.

Jan 8, Operation Auca: Five U.S. missionaries are killed by the Huaorani of Ecuador shortly after making contact with them.

Jan 18, German Democratic Republic (East Germany) forms own army (National People's Army)

Jan 22, 30 people died in a train crash in Los Angeles.

Feb 14, Indonesia withdraws from Neth Indonesian Union 

Today morning i over heard a conversation of two females discussing something about T 56 and about a gun fire happened in the Eastern Part of the country (?) The conversation of two females directed my thoughts towards searching some information about number '56'. 

who has the official rights to use T 56?  Is it something that anyone can use? those questions came into my mind this morning. What else comes into your mind when you think of 56? other than A rifle?

Let us discuss more about number 56 in the future, the owner of the internet cafe is waiting to close his shop.
