was born into a Sinhalese family. The English language
was limited in our area back then. Though my father
could speak English, my mother still cannot.
mother used to tell me that when I was about two years
old, I once took out a knife and a fork and imitated
the British method of eating, saying "this is the way
I ate when I was in England." We usually use our hands
to eat rice, but never use a spoon, fork or knife.
got our first TV set in 1983 and I still remember watching
English songs over and over again, though I could not
understood anything. My father used to tell me that
I was trying to imitate the western people. It was in
my blood, and I eagerly look forward to visiting England
a fortune teller who could see visions explained to
me that I had been born in England in a previous life.
I was a woman and did many humanitarian activities for
society. Even now that is my passion, though I do it
on a smaller scale.
remember a house, not very big, with a small garden
in front of it. Also, the death of princess Diana has
given me so much grief.
