MUMBAI, Nov 22: Kushil Gunakekara, the vice chairman of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and the chairman of the Tour Organizing Committee was in India on a mission.
He was invited to share his views at the 3rd International Conference on Life Skills & Livelihood Skills - Realizing and sustaining Clean India.
Kushil Gunakekara, who managed world's highest Test wicket taker Muthiah Muralitharan during his playing days is known for his charity work in his country. He is also a founder of the popular charity institution (Founation of Goodness).
Speaking exclusively over his telephone before boarding a flight to Colombo on Sunday morning, he says, "I was privileged to have shared some of my experiences working with the rural disadvantaged communities and if we extend opportunities to these talented and skillful villagers undoubtedly they will make much better progress for our countries to prosper so much more".
"Besides the life skills & livelihood skills I was inspired to follow your PM Narendra Modi's vision of sustaining clean India particularly on the aspect of sanitation facilities and its aim to build 11 Million toilets for which we too contributed in small measure but every little counts like the rain drops filling up the the big pot!".
"It's not about attending a conference but making a difference walking the talk".
"The beauty of life depends on how happy others are because of us and its about doing small things with great love which counts the most", Gunakekara added.
"I am also blessed to be supported by the Cricket icons such as Muthiah Muralidaran, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardena and Russel Arnold", Gunasekera, who is also the chairman of the SLC board's Tour and Organising committee, signed off.
The three-day conference, which ended in Hyderabad on Friday, was chaired by Dr. Richard W. Oliver, CEO, American Sentinel University.
