Even as Sri Lankan school children were being prevented from participating in cultural and sporting events in Tamil Nadu, a delegation of youth from Indian army families was on a goodwill tour of Sri Lanka at the invitation of the Viru Daru Society, an organisation of children of Sri Lankan army personnel.
The 25-member Indian team had arrived here on August 31 for a five-day tour of the island. They were welcomed by Deshani Jayasuriya, chairperson of the Viru Daru Society, the Lankan army said. The Indian youth visited places of cultural and historical interest like Kandy, Sigiriya, Dambulla, Anuradhapura, and Trincomalee.
