UNIQUE TIMES|November - December 2020
Adam’s Peak is an amazing mountain situated in the central region of the Island country of Sri Lanka. It is a pilgrimage site. The peak is locally known as Sri Pada. There is around three popular stories around this peak. According to Buddhists, Sri Pada is the footprint of Lord Buddha; considering the fact that Buddhism is the dominant religion in the country, the said belief has more popularity in the country than the rest. As per Hindus, Sri Pada is the footprint of Lord Shiva. The third dominant belief is the one preached by Christians. They believe that Sri Pada is the first step of Adam after being exiled from the Garden of Eden.

My school is this nature. Her language is love. The way she teaches me is not easy to be described with words. It is an endless process of interaction. It is a combination of learning and relearns. What makes this school special is the elements that are used to impart knowledge. Rivers, mountains, forests and beaches are some of the main elements that are used. To those who wonder how these elements can teach us, it is important to be told that these natural elements are the true source of real knowledge. There is a clear difference between textbook learning and real-life learning. Learning from the school of nature comes under the category of real-life learning. It stands out from the rest for that reason also.

To become a part of this learning process is simple. Just what we need is determination. It is not easy to overcome a haunting urge for turning back. People normally fear to break free from the frameworks erected by the establishment. Learning from nature does not come under any of these frameworks. It sometimes tends to challenge this framework even.

Thus, to choose this path needs great determination. It is believed that the world will shed its inhibitions and jump into this path to liberate itself from its limitations.

Let’s begin our exploration from our neighbourhood.

Though Sri Lanka is only a few kilometres away from the southern tip of India, it shares an entirely different identity from that of ours. Its rich culture, art, architecture, tradition and many more define its identity.

Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the Temple of the Tooth, Adam’s Peak, Yala National Park and Arugam Bay are the main tourist attractions in the Indian Ocean Island country of Sri Lanka.

In this edition, a humble attempt is made to explore this Island country, which shares an undetachable relation with India – in terms of culture, tradition, art, architecture, religion, history, language and many more.
