“Sri Lankan Fans Take a Bow” By S. Skandakumar

The recent support and solidarity of our cricket fans throughout the T20 and One Day series, that inspired our youthful national team to great heights may well go down in history as unprecedented. The fact that it came at the most challenging time ever in their own personal lives spoke volumes for their love for the game and our talented youth.

Their sincere acknowledgement of the role of Australia in the advancement of our cricket since attaining Test status in 1982, reflected a nation’s gratitude. As we struggle out of the worst-ever economic crisis experienced since Independence, let us together usher in a new era, and embrace the values that have made Australia the nation it is, through equality, mutual respect, and the rigid application of the Rule of Law where no one is above it.

May God bless our beautiful country and all her people.

The writer was the Assistant Secretary of Sri Lanka Cricket in 1982-1988, Secretary in 1989-1992, Vice Chairman

/Secretary First Interim Committee in 1999-2000, and

Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Australia in 2015-2019.

The James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful observatory to be placed in orbit, has revealed the “deepest and sharpest infrared image of the early universe” ever taken, going back 13 billion years, NASA said. At first glance, the first image from NASA’s new James Webb Space Telescope may not seem all that remarkable. But in reality, what appears to be tiny specks in space are actually galaxies — billions of years old. “If you held a grain of sand on the tip of your finger at arms length, that is the part of the universe you are seeing — just one little speck of the universe,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said of the image.

Over 1,500 Muslims who were planning to make the Hajj pilgrimage this year have decided to skip in a bid to help Sri Lanka conserve scarce foreign exchange. Saudi Arabia had allocated a quota of nearly 1,600 persons from Sri Lanka for the Hajj this year. It was the first time in two years Sri Lanka got an opportunity as Saudi cancelled the practice of one of the pillars of Islam for outsiders in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID pandemic. Sources said if Sri Lankans were to undertake the pilgrimage the cost would have been around $ 7 million.

Crisp Asparagus Rolls with Cheese and xo Sauce

Ingredients

16 fresh large asparagus spears (about 1 lb./500g)

6 cups (1.5liters) water mixed with 1 tablespoon

   of salt

Ice water

2 to 3 sheets filo pastry (20×11 in/50x28cm each)

for wrapping

6 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

4 teaspoons XO sauce

1/2 cup (1 stick 125 g) butter, melted

1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil

 

Makes 16 pieces

Preparation time:20 minutes

Cooking time :10 minutes

 

METHOD

1.Cut off the bottom one-third of the asparagus spears and

  discard. Bring the salted water to a boil in a saucepan and

  blanch the asparagus spears for 3 minutes, then drain and

  quickly plunge into the ice water.

2.Cut the filo pastry into long rectangular strips with the width measuring 2/3 the height of the asparagus spears.

3.Place the grated cheese and the asparagus spears on a large plate, then move the plate to and fro to roll the asparagus in the cheese until well coated.

4.Place each asparagus spear on a filo strip, close to one end. Spread 1/4 teaspoon of the XO sauce over the asparagus and brush the filo strip with the melted butter.

5.Wrap by rolling the filo strip around the asparagus spear 3 to 4 times and seal with a dab of the butter. Repeat with all the other asparagus spears.

6.Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and pan- fry the asparagus rolls on all sides, placing the sealed edge face down first, until the filo pastry turns golden brown. Serve hot on a platter.
