 Life-2-New-1It is rarely that one comes across people who are with a happy disposition at all times. Prithi Fernando is one person I know who is always in a great mood come what may. Two weeks ago she celebrated her belated birthday on the pontoon where all her guests were invited to rock the boat, and rocked the boat is what they did with lots of great food and a super choice of beverages. It kept the crowd going till the pontoon docked back to the jetty in the wee hours. Her celebrations are always such.


I have known Prithi for many decades and throughout these years, to me, she has come across as a positive person. Generous to a fault, always hosting great parties and at the same time doing great charitable deeds. The latter is done in the quiet and sans publicity.


Chatting with Prithi recently I learned that a media person who always thought she was doing a great honour by featuring Prithi had the gumption to say to her that it was she who had made Prithi well known in Colombo. Fortunately, Prithi knew her for what she was. A crafty fox trying to enhance her financial benefits from Prithi. Colombo is a small fish pond and in reality one does not need humongous publicity to be known. On top of it, Prithi also knew that this fox bad mouths her to other women and benefits financially from them in return.


Prithi is a clever and intelligent business woman and independent in her own right. Like all successful people, she will always have those who will dislike her and happy to relate a bad tale or two about her. She fortunately knows never to get ruffled and rises above, celebrating life and continuing with her good deedsPrithi knows that the main ingredients in life are to be generous and happy.
