Sri Lanka celebrates first New Year after civil war

The guns & the suicide bombers have been silent for about a year now, so, this New Year's in Sri Lanka (celebrated on 4/14, more on that tradition here) is a very special one - compared to the 20+/30 or so ones that preceded it.

Happy New Year to everyone in Sri Lanka & in the Sri Lankan diaspora world wide!

Here's a little bit from what looks like a SL TV news report re: the New Year's celebrations (for those who do not understand Sinhala, the images & sounds/music may be interesting):

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
