I am trying to put together as much of a collection of
Ceylon Independence Day
memorabilia here on this blog.
This 1966 film clip bother me.
I was in Ceylon then. I was 12 years old.
I can’t remember it! That is what scares me.
I can’t actually remember, at least not reliably,
going to a single February 4 Independence Day event.
I know, for a fact, that I did attend.
I just can’t remember.
I have recollections of other events from that period.
I remember Gopallawa.
Doesn’t matter. Old age on my part.
