OK I am rushing through with this post but this is something I heard while I was having a random chat with a kid in Cinnamon Grand. I try to convince him to help me out with the SLYCAN (Sri Lanka Youth Climate Action Network) and he tells me that Galleface beach stretch is going to disappear to make way to skyscrapers!!!
Now who came up with this bright idea?? Does this mean that we are actually not going to have anymore “Let’s go to Galleface for a walk??” in our life?? (Well I am speaking for those who do this because every time I pass the place I see thousands of average Sri Lakan citizens who spend their weekend with their family there)
And we do have to admit that it is an icon in the Sri Lankan life style where it has marked its presence in the literature, art, music and also in the history of Colombo.
I am not the expert on this matter, yet I am launching the debate so as to inform myself with regards to this subject as well as see the public opinion on the beach stretch’s disappearance.
Please feel free to comment and also raise questions on the matter 🙂
I seriously doubt that “they” could get away with something like that!! And if they try, they will go down history very unpopular.. so they would think twice before doing something like that..
Honestly I can’t remember the last time I went to Galle Face but it definitely is part of our life just being there! Can’t imagine Colombo without Galle Face.
