Amadahara Zone glows Orange during Vesak

Orange Electric, joined hands with ANCL, as main sponsor in the illumination of the Amadahara Vesak Zone. This is the third consecutive year Orange Electric came forward as the main sponsor of this national event.

The illumination of the Amadahara Vesak Zone is a key event in Colombo’s Vesak calendar. Situated in the vicinity of Lake House, the Amadahara Vesak Zone comprised the area leading from the Lake House roundabout, along D.R. Wijewardena Mawatha and Sir Chittampalam A Gardiner Mawatha.

The Amadahara Vesak programme took place on Tuesday May 1 and Wednesday May 2. The programme, included a Vesak lantern competitions, bhakthi gee, traditional puppet shows and dansalas. ITN and Lakhanda Radio provided live updates of the proceedings, which were attended by a large gathering including ministers, senior officials from the media and sponsors.

The aesthetic beauty of the lighting displays within the Amadahara Zone illustrates the versatility and creative potential of lighting in the electrical industry.

Ananda Rajapakse, CEO of Orange Electric, in his address to the gathering, confirmed this. "As a totally Sri Lankan company and market leader in electrical accessories, Orange Electric is keenly involved in the lives of the people. Vesak touches the core of the beliefs of the people and so every aspect of their lives.

"Vesak uses lighting to commemorate the Enlightenment of the Lord Buddha. Therefore, it is only fitting that a wholly Sri Lankan company involved in lighting and power associates itself with this national event."
