Rationalist Day 2011

The "Rationalist Day" concept in Sri Lanka started last year and I was fortunate enough to attend that event. During the past year I got to know the people at Sri Lanka Rationalist Association (SLRA) quite well and I was invited to attend the Rationalist Day this year as well.

The "Rationalist Day 2011" was held at "Namel - Malini Punchi Theatre" like the last year but this time SLRA has decided to have it on 7th June 2011 due to many holidays and celebrations in the month of May.

Despite the really bad weather and the main speaker getting sick and not showing up, the SLRA have asked us (Secular Sri Lanka) to do a longer lecture to cope up. Mr. Hemachandra Wijesooriya, a personal level friend of the great rationalist Bertrand Russell delivered his interesting lecture to the audience. Like the last year’s event there was time for discussion and it was just as interesting as last year.
