Message for the Annual Summer Camp organised by Colombo Children’s Book Society, Sri Lanka

I feel extremely delighted to send my greetings and best wishes to all children and adults associated with the Colombo Children’s Book Society. I salute Dr. Ambalampitiya’s vision, his determination, dedication, perseverance and love for children which brought International recognition to the project for encouraging child authors.

With great sense of pride and honour I recollect walking down the roads of Colombo, with hundreds of young aspiring authors following during the 27th Annual Summer Camp which we attended in April 2011.

I stand deeply indebted to all the people of Sri Lanka, particularly Dr, Ambalampitiya and all his friends and well wishers who extended such warm hospitality. The four days spent just flew by amidst the warm loving Sri Lankans and the scenic beauty of your country.

I wish to convey my best wishes for the coming Annual Summer Camp to be held on 8th April 2013. I also wish all the children who attend this camp a bright future. I wanted to be a part of this camp but due to personal prior commitment, I am not being able to.

Best Wishes

Abha Anant
