The Sinhala New Year, generally known as the Aluth Avurudda, is a major event celebrated by not only the Sinhalese people but by most Sri Lankans. We at the Imperial Family too got together with the participation of delegates from the University of the West of Scotland involving all ethnic groups at Digana Village in Kandy to celebrate our own Imperial Avurudu. It was on the 28th of April that every one of the Imperial families enjoyed a wide variety of sweet meets from the Imperial Avurudu table, followed up by everyone participating in the fun and traditional Avurudu games! The celebration of Aluth Avurudu with a traditional Avurudu Uthsawaya has now become an annual event in the Imperial calendar. Imperial has the objective of teaching all students from different ethnic groups how to accommodate each other’s cultures going further to the academics, which will eventually help them become better human beings.
