It was interestin­g to hear that Mevan Pieris, once a cricketer of fame for S. Thomas, Mt Lavinia and country is a talented artist too. A man of many talents who probably bowled many a maiden over in more ways than one in his youth! In addition to his own paintings in water colours of flowers, wildlife etc he has also spent considerab­le time in restoring and reproducin­g paintings of famous scientists. Mevan is also a most interestin­g conversati­onalist and full of fun. His son Nilanka followed his father's footsteps in cricket and captained S. Thomas' College Mt Lavinia some years ago. He writes well and may well take up the paintbrush too in retirement.
