First Birthday Celebration
Little Kiara, daughter of Sujani Bogollagama celebrated her first birthday with a quiet family celebration due to the prevailing lockdown. She wore the dress that her mother had worn on her first birthday and also her sister Banara on her first birthday. It says a lot for the fabric and sewing of the time that the dress has been preserved carefully over the years. She was assisted by her mother and protective elder sister in cutting the cake. Only others present were proud grandma Sunetra and Sujani's sister Heshani and Satish. Heshani and a friend have a handloom project ‘Isle of Rataa' to promote various handicrafts which are sold at NUMA on Torrington Avenue. The birthday girl enjoyed her celebration cushioned by the love of her nearest and dearest. My share of cake was sent by Sujani, an excellent working mother.
