Sir,

You might definitely be surprised to receive an E-mail from a retired Teacher & then a Training Instructor who is now performing consultancy work even at the age of 63 years not old in my heart, thoughts, talent and capabilities.
I had a knack for teaching & therefore selected it as my profession. My favourite subject was Chemistry and due to request I started to teach English in Republic of Maldives. But after 55 yrs. I thought of compiling archival data for many Companies & personalities for their Anniversaries.

I came to know about Raa Irapaana (RI) mainly because of an unusual & exceptional Adv. which appeared on Sunday Times of 25th Sept.2011. That created anxiety when I read the wordings & Bandula Nanayakkarawasm's signature. For the very first time in my life I tuned up RI and it was the 03rd program of 02 hr. duration. From then on wards I have never missed any of the RI programs until 115th. The reason behind it for me was its superior quality in selecting as well as coordinating the topics and the lilting voice & its tone making the whole program an acclaimed one each day.

This is how I started to listen RI in FM Derana on Sundays at 7.00 p.m. Thousands of other listeners and I were being addicted to RI till 22nd Dec.2013. Our family even changed our schedule of daily worshiping on Sundays only.
My two sons aged 26 yrs. & 21 yrs. with my wife were really enjoying the whole of 02 hrs. With respect to the presenter I myself understood the value of it and how much more we still are to learn in life. Also I assure you that people from 15 yrs. up to around 85 years (Even Pandith Amaradeva) do listen RI regularly. I feel sorry that I am not in a position to list out the names with their ages to make this a complete brochure since I have not collected the Statistics with data of RI program.

RI is a record breaking program in broadcasting history. This is the only musical program which has ever reached 115 weeks, broadcasting 02 hrs. each Sunday continuously. Concept, sketch, coordination, voicing and editing by the same compere, in the same channel with the same sponsor. It comes to 230 hrs for 115 programs. What a surprise? to Sri Lankans, FM Derana, its sponsor Commercial Credit, the Presenter Bandula Nanayakkarawasam and RI Listeners.We are very unfortunate NOT to have the 116th on 29th. As I reside in Gampaha area, I phoned and inquired about it from the CC branch. The answer was a vague one. Bandula might have stopped because FM Derana has stopped the Saturday repeat.That might be the cause they replied. But before 7.00 p.m. on 29th at least this might had been informed to such a large number of RI crowd of lovers in real music including every family.

As a RI fan, I listen the Sat. repeat too. Professor Sunil Ariyaratna. Lecturer Samantha Herath, many professionals, School Staff & children, 3-wheeler drivers, Large & Small scale groceries do switch-on FM Derana on Saturdays to listen the repeat too. While driving they tune to FM Derana and listen RI on Saturday Repeat as a habit.This is a well known fact among Sri Lankans who love RI.

With responsibility I state here that the highest no. of listeners are with RI and it is the most popular as well as very well illustrated one out of every broadcasting program. RI & FM Derana were adjudged the most valuable ones while Bandula Nanayakkarawasam was awarded as the best editor & presenter at State Music Awards Ceremony 2013.

There are many Sri Lankans residing after migration do listen RI without fail. I came to know this by some cousins & friends who are coordinating with me regularly. Some students of mine also do the same accurately alarming phones to the specified time in their countries before commencing RI. Furthermore I state that repeat RI on Saturdays are also popular among young and professional listeners as the one we listen on Sundays.

In conclusion I would like to mention that I started to listen Radio when my age was only 10 years. Still I can remember that the special program was 'Madhuwanthi' edited by Mahagamasekera while music was by Pandit Amaradeva. What a surprise? Recently through RI I heard the very same original songs from Madhuwanthi.

As a teacher here & abrod I have requested so many and told them to convey this message to everyone who are friends or any known people from its inception. Please do remember, Sir, Listeners in Sri Lanka live not within Mega blasters neither in cheap TV Teledramas. FM Derana can gain again the distinction by continuing a vivid musical program like RI in awards ceremonies held by the Govt.in future too.There are no two words in my saying.
I with responsibility state that FM Derana is the only channel which illustrated Meaningful songs and Life of generations with different ages are always bonded together specially with RI musical program. I assure you that RI has gone to our deepest heart & penetrated the bone marrows.

In conclusion, I want to state this for your information. Sirasa, as they say No.1 channel re-started one of their earlier
popular programs 'Sathi Aga Sadaya' which had to be stopped just as RI commenced in FM Derana. They were reluctant to compete with RI. From last week it was re-started with the singer Karunaratna Divulgane as RI was not
broadcasting. As a senior citizen I do feel sad for this. Others will be benefited to some extent. There are many more
comments but as this mail becomes longer I will like to stop with the major point stated above.


I have being waiting for you but I cannot hear you for weekends. How I believe, I lost you not only you, only one program that I can share my life. I did not write you in the past because I met you every Sunday or Saturday. No one with me today to share our departure . I feel I am drunk now My brother try find another way to meet us pleas.

d I forgot to identify myself I am a police officer who has been fond of RAIRAPANA

Dear Mr.Bandula,

As a Subhavitha Gee listner from a Valve Radio in 1960 on wards till 1978, I assure you that I had not heard some of the songs of her from any media. Although I had come to know the voice-sound problem of Abey about a couple of months, I did not shed any tears at any moment. But definitely I must state that you are the first presenter with her creations made myself to cry after the demise of my mother in the months of April & May. You gave me relief after couple of weeks. You are in that sense be regarded as a personality with co-ordination
of knowledge too. I bend my head to you who is having a golden voice. Please be aware of your health, always.My blessings are always to you.

I was crying till about 9.30 p.m. and when my wife called me for dinner I refused. Then thought of sending this E-mail to u.

Yours very sincerely,
ananda wickramarachchi - Gampaha.
