People of Galle – the Mahadeva Sisters (2/3)
We are nature lovers as you can see by our verandah. We have plants, dogs, and we like to leave food out for the sparrows. Our mother used to love sitting here in the evenings. She would often offer sweets and cold drinks to people passing by. Each morning, we walked the dogs on the ramparts and look over to Rumassala, which is believed to be a part of the Himalayas dropped by Hanuman, the monkey god. Jayanthi enjoys swimming off Sea Beach and I enjoy going to the library. When we were growing up, Galle Fort was even calmer – we would play cricket on the streets and a game called ‘7 stones’ on the ramparts.
