OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Australia, H. E. Mr Somasundaram Skandakumar, in the company of Mr W.G.S. Prasanna, Sri Lanka Consul General in Melbourne, paid a Courtesy call to the ‘Victor Melder Sri Lanka Library’, situated at my home, to acquaint themselves with Victor randolph Melder’s untiring efforts in promoting Sri Lanka in Australia.This library has been in existence for 48 years and has grown from one publication to over 5,000 today and is a store house of information on Sri Lanka.

Older Lankans in OZ will remember Victor’s cyclo-styled news sheet Rhythm of the Wheels catering to the old Ceylon railway buffs…. and so from little acorns do big oaks grow. Well done, Victor….
