 Ministry Foreign Affairs in Sri Lanka by its circular No 60 /2022 / file No FA/OSL/2/1 has instructed all missions abroad to help in establishing a database of Sri Lankans living in their assigned territories.

  The government is of the opinion that having a centralized database will be of value in facilitating various official purposes such as providing emergency / consular  assistance, policy formulation, promoting engagement of overseas Sri Lankans in economic / development activities, etc

  

Having experienced the difficulties of not having a properly updated Database in providing services to you all during the recent Pandemic,we are sure that you will agree with us how difficult it would be without a current database in an extremely unlikely event similar to having to evacuate Sri Lankans from Russia and Ukraine. 

   We at the Consulate General requested all Sri Lankan Associations and Temples in the areas coming under the purview of the Consulate General at Los Angeles to help us in revising the database of Sri Lankans living in California by email dated November 3rd, 2021. We can not say that we are happy with the response we had from these institutions.

 We have also tried to gather information regarding the number of Sri Lankans living here from the census department to be advised that they don’t have a separate category as Sri Lankans apart from the main catogery of Asians. 

 We will be thankful to you for providing your details using the link given below

Please be good enough to pass on this link and motivate your colleagues and friends also to do the same and help us to serve you all better.

Dr kumar rupesinghe passed away on february 19, 2022 in colombo, sri lanka

Dr. Kumar Rupesinghe passed away at his home in Colombo on February 19, 2022. Husband of Marit, father of Anja and Natasja. Son of Dr. Leslie Rupesinghe and Olga Perera. Brother of the late Ajith Rupesinghe, Pravin and Sonali Perera. Funeral arrangements are pending. A Memorial Ceremony will be held at a later date.

A Tribute to Kumar

My cousin Kumar Rupesinghe’s life was emblematic of the values that are so fundamental to our family and 

very much needed around the world today. He worked tirelessly for peace and for human rights in Sri Lanka as

well as in other parts of the world. His work encompassed social justice, equity and dignity for ALL. He was a 

prolific writer and editor of many academic journals. He chaired several organizations and NGO’s to help bring 

attention to global conflicts, in addition he was an august member of many boards around the world and was in the company of distinguished persons, such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Jimmy Carter, to name just a few.

He was a devoted husband to Marit and his two accomplished and beautiful daughters, Anja and Natasja.  

As the oldest cousin in our family, from my father’s side (Jim Wanigatunga), he was larger than life (to me, anyway) 

and commanded respect from all the other cousins. We would have arguments, quarrels and heated discussions, 

all in the name of family fun. In our adult years, he was a role model to all of us.

I will miss him…..may he Rest In Peace.

Our objective is to do what is right by the country, and not to please everyone,” President Rajapaksa said.“We can make our way forward, only with a positive attitude that looks optimistically towards the future. We can surmount the challenges we meet only if we dedicate ourselves to a victorious journey.”

Queen Elizabeth II on February 6 became the first British monarch to reign for 70 years, heralding the start of her Platinum Jubilee year despite her retreat from public view.

But the landmark date saw little fanfare, as the 95-year-old monarch traditionally spent the anniversary of the death of her father in private.

Victor Munasinghe (84) passed away in Santa Monica, Ca.

“My close friend Victor Munasinghe passed away on February 1, 2022. Victor’s nephew, Oliver Ranasinghe gave me the sad news this morning. I met Victor in Los Angeles when he first arrived several decades ago.  We developed a bond and friendship that lasted until his passing. Although I moved back to Sri Lanka, we kept in close touch and shared several lunches  and dinners whenever I visited Los Angeles. I respected his creativity and often used him as a sounding board when producing my films and writings. I respected his purity in his endeavors. His concern for others and his spiritual dedication was an inspiration to me. I shall miss my good friend who was always with me in spirit during the highs and lows of my life.”
