Google Disappoints Sri Lanka Once More — No Google Doodle For 2017 Avurudu (Sinhala New Year).

I have been keeping an eye for the last few hours. Checked a few minutes ago at 9:10pm U.S. Eastern time. It was 6:40am on Friday, April 14, 2017.

So, well into the morning in Sri Lanka so to speak. Avurudu is well underway.

They have been hoping for an Avurudu Google Doodle for years after I managed to get the very first Doodle for Independence Day in 2013.

But they have yet to do one for New Year or Vesak.

Ironically, to add salt to the wound, they do New Year Doodles for Thailand and Bangladesh who also celebrate more or less on the same day.

Well, there is always next year.

Happy New Year, irrespective.

Painted by me when I was between 6 – 8 years old,
i.e., 1959 to 1961, while still living in Ceylon.


Dawning of the 2017 New Year will be TODAY,
Thursday, April 13 at 4:34pm.

[2:04am in Sri Lanka on April 14].

Cooking Kiribath: Thursday (TODAY) again, April 13th at 8:11pm (5:41am in Sri Lanka on the Friday.]


Happy Sinhala New Year 2017.

The 3rd New Year of the Year for I.
But you can never have too many.

Enjoy. Rejoice.
