As I said I only recently realized that Ceylon Independence,
on February 4, 1948,
was overshadowed, around the world,
by Mahatma Gandhi’s tragic assassination
and his funeral which took place on February 3rd.

I happened to find this last night. Wow.
Shame about the typo. I have notified them of it.

I wonder WHO the Ceylon representative was and who was the daughter.
There is a chance that they are both alive.
If you know who they are, please share.
