Colombo on Avurudu Day

Sinhala Hindu Avurudda
Traditional New Year
Time to reflect and recharge batteries
Time to return to the roots
Time for unity

Center of attention otherwise
Becomes a ghost town

The hospitals
Are the same
People go here and there
United in feeling
Pain, anguish, helplessness
Written on the faces

Sickness, pain and death
Does not take leave
Even when all others do
