Niroshan Muwanwella &Kethishwaram Singaravel are two dedicated, passionate senior members of BSCL who live in abroad. It was 28th November 2011, I got the message that they are coming for a visit to Sri Lanka for a vacation. This was a rare opportunity that we will get, to meet all our former PAs. Therefore we planned a small PA’s get together.  It was scheduled on 4th December 2011, at Ceylon Continental Hotel.
