Peter Weerakoon has sent us the following e mail on August 28, 2013. He has subsequently written to us on September 11, 2013 and said he has no objection to our placing his Research Article, on our Web Site.
As informed earlier please find attached my observations on the article which was published in the Thomiana.
As you will note at the end of the reading this is not been done for any gain or with intention to antagonise anyone, but to clear the air and put in some correct data into the article, which was indeed well written with a deep and abiding sense of love and sentiments, but had histroicial faults both of college and of the country Sri Lanka, which although bought to her notic e was not corrected.
It is too late to make any amends to the article, but suffice it if it is noted that in future when article of this nature are submitted to the College committees for publication, it be checked, for its closeness to the subject and correctness to the History. If its a plain personnel article about one's own school days then its okay to just go ahead and take the persons word.
We must bear in mind that in today's context of things , there is plenty of chances for those outside college to pick up thiese short comings and have big laugh or even wonder if we know the Histopry of our Country although we claim to be Thomians.
Please note that tjhis may be discussed verbally , but no publication of the my anaylisi is permitted, without my express permission. Would appreicate some feed back,but no discussion thank you.
Peter Weerakoon has Sent us the following e mail on August 25, 2013
Have you put that article on the web site, as I just came across it, when I typed in Douglas Noel Pereira to check on further reseacrch. I have done a research on the whole article and find many incorrect eetails which I will sent you as soon as I complete the thing. Have a check and see if the details of the article and what I have researched agree.
For instance Sir Oliver was not the first GG of Ceylon , he was the third. He went to Wesley College.
Dudley left College in 1927, C/V/ P/ built his up stair house in 1929, so how did Dudley go back to Wattrapola road for Tuition, He was in Cambridge , Check Wikipediya.
I will send you the full reseacrh article, and youcould include it in the Guru page or do what you feel about it but the fact remains that the article is not fully authentic. If you find that my has proven fascts you could place it on the Guru WEb site , butI leave that to you.
Mypoint is that College History and the Country's has been distorted , plus some exgaration of events have taken over.
Your view awaited.
