Arisen Ahubudu passed away
Popular Sinhala scholar, teacher and playwright Kalasuri Arisen Ahubudu passed away this morning at the age of 91.
The late Ahubudu who was born in 1920 was named Ariyasena Ashuboda by his parents but later changed it to the Hela format due to his association with the Hela Havula movement. He was a writer, orator, scholar, playwright, teacher, Sinhala lyricist and poet.
Ahubudu was famous as an astrologer and he gave names to many individuals and businesses.
Ahubudu's remains were placed in a private hospital and the funeral arrangements are yet to be announced by the family.
This is a sad moment and a great loss... Sir May you attain Nibbana
