100 Students from Ferguson for the protection of our Heritage
3606


Furguson, a leading college in Rathnapura Sri lanka celebrating its 100 years in 2017, made arrangements to have a Paimpath ceremony for 100 students who have shown their talent in dancing.

The Paimpath or the Sheershabharana ceremony is the equivalent to Wes bendeema of the male Kandyan dancers which was introduced to the tradition of Kandyan dancing in the modern era. The ceremony is now quite popular among the thousands of students who study and nurture the kandyan dance form of Sri Lanka.


This colorful ceremony was held on 18th and 19th of January 2017 in Rathnapura Maha Saman Dewalaya premises and Seewali ground. Many rituals connected to the tradition of placing the headgear on the student was an educational experience too.

It is also need to be noted that the girls who took part in the ceremony and also their parents have been living on a vegetarian diet for three months enhancing the value of this ritualistic tradition which symbolizes the richness of the Sri Lankan culture.
