    A Prayer for the Autistic Community

    Gracious Father,
    Thank you for giving us your Son
    To teach us and forgive us.
    He suffered and died for us,
    And while he was on this earth
    He healed the sick
    And touched the lives
    Of everyone.

    We now commit the lives
    Of all autistic people in our nation
    Into Your loving care.
    We ask you to lay Your hands on them
    And give them Your peace.
    Give them the power of the Holy Spirit
    To make them whole.
    In Jesus Name, Amen.

    From a Child -

    Jesus,
    Thank you
    That you are there for me
    There are many things I'd like to do better-
    Like speaking and writing.
    I ask you to help me.
    You have already helped me in many ways.
    Sometimes I see the world in pictures -
    I like to draw, to watch TV.
    I like to do many more things,
    Which I can't do.
    So please lay your hands on me
    And bless me.
    Be with me Lord Jesus
    At home and in school.

    Thank you for my parents, my family,
    My teachers and support workers
    And all those who are helping me.
    Thank you Jesus, Amen.

  • Tribute to Dr.Uthum Herat 1957-2009

    A tribute to Dr. Uthum Herat published in the Daily News in Sri Lanka:

    Dr.UthumHerat

    Tribute
    Dr. Uthum Herat (1957-2009)

    It is with deep sadness that I heard of the passing away of my dear friend Dr. Uthum Herat on Friday, October 23, 2009.

    I write to honour my friend. I first met Uthum in the early 1960s when he joined S.Thomas’ Preparatory School in Kollupitiya. We then moved to the ‘big’ school S.Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia in 1968. Uthum was a serious, studious young man.

    He excelled in his academic studies. At one stage I sat behind the same desk with Uthum Herat and Suresh Thambipillai, at S.Thomas’ College. Our friend Suresh was fascinated by the Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. Uthum and I used to tease Suresh no end.

    He did have a sense of humour. He loved to play a friendly game of cricket at lunchtimes and on a serious note he was a member of the celebrated Thomian debating society, chess club and other Thomian Societies.

    It was in the 1970s, that a charismatic former Rugby player and Old Royalist called Rev. Duleep de Chickera joined College as Chaplain. He was instrumental in bringing us into that area of belief, faith and spirituality as we turned to Christ. Uthum joined the Student Christian Movement and in later years he became a Lay Preacher in his church, - he certainly was a man of faith.

    Before I left for the UK, Uthum and I participated in a celebration called ‘Breakdown and Breakthrough’ with Ronald Toussaint, Asitha Perera, Yohan Dias-Abeysinghe, Suresh Thambipillai, Johann de Silva, together with students from S.Thomas’ College, Royal College, Ladies College and Bishop’s College.

    The dramatised act of worship for Easter at the Cathedral of Christ the Living Saviour was directed by a British Religious Education worker, Gillian Todd. The newspapers featured Uthum and all of us in an article titled - ‘Easter Detente with the Now People,’ it was also featured in the Daily News and the Sunday Observer in 1974. Hundreds of people attended this act of worship.

    Uthum was the cross on which Christ was crucified and we all shouted out: ‘Christ has smashed death, he has liberated the world, he has freed the Universe. You and I and everything are free again, let’s have a festival and follow him across the skies, through the flames of heaven!’

    We kept in touch over the years and his last e-mail to me was only a few weeks ago when I wished him for his birthday. I last met Uthum in 2003 on a visit to Sri Lanka - we reminisced about College days.

    Uthum, always the caring friend, was concerned that our son Charin was diagnosed with autism and wanted to know more about our Autism Awarness Campaign.

    Uthum was a loyal son of Sri Lanka - with 27 years of public service at the Central Bank. Before being appointed as the Deputy Governor at the Central Bank, Uthum served in the Statistics Department, Economic Research Department and as an Assistant Governor in charge of Bank Supervision, Supervision of Non-Bank Financial Institution Department, Financial Stability Departments and several operational departments. He has worked in areas of financial systems and price stability of the Central Bank.

    Uthum was on release to IMF to serve as the Alternate Executive Director for Bangladesh, Bhutan, India and Sri Lanka in IMF from 2004 to 2007. He held a degree in Science from the University of Sri Jayawardenepura with a first class honours. He obtained his MSc and PhD degrees from University of Purdue, USA, where he specialized in Finance and International Finance.

    He was also an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, UK and had authored many articles in reputed international and local journals in the areas of monetary policy, foreign exchange market, financial sector reforms, money laundering, Central Bank independence, economic growth, exchange rate, financial market deployment, unemployment and savings and investments.

    Uthum was a visiting lecturer and resource person at Colombo and Moratuwa Universities, SEACEN Research and Training Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka.

    Uthum served as member of Monetary Policy Committee, Financial System Stability and Foreign Exchange Management Committee of the Central Bank. He was the Central Bank nominee to serve as the co-chair of the Financial Services Sub Committee for negotiations with India on the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement. He played a pivotal role at the Central Bank.

    I will never forget childhood memories of Uthum attending my birthday parties at Maha Nuge Gardens. I will miss my friend - a kind hearted, caring gentleman with impeccable manners.

    I have never heard Uthum saying a bad word against anyone. He was a gentle soul who was quiet and unassuming but he was also a deep thinker with a heart of gold.

    May he rest in peace, in the arms of Christ.

    - Ivan Corea

  • In Memory of Dr.Uthum Herat 1957-2009

    Vernon Corea met Uthum Herat many times when he visited the family home in Maha Nuge Gardens in Colombo-3 in the 1960s and 1970s.

    Dr.UthumHerat

    In Appreciation of Dr. Uthum Herat

    Dr. Uthum Herat, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka passed away on the 23/10/2009 at the age of 52 years. His death cut-off a brilliant career in the Central Bank that had commenced 27 years ago and reached its zenith when he was appointed Deputy Governor in 2009.

    A product of St. Thomas’s College Mount Lavinia, Dr. Herat entered the University of Jaffna to read for a degree in Mathematics and Statistics. Due to disruptions that prevailed during the late 70s, students were relocated to the University of Sri Jayawardenapura and Dr. Herat completed the first degree with flying colours obtaining a first class honours degree in Statistics. By this time he had also completed the Final Examination of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and went on to obtain his Associate membership in 1981, Despite the possibility of obtaining lucrative employment in the private sector, Dr. Herat joined the Central Bank of Sri Lanka in 1983. Even at this early stage of his career he stood out, not only for his brilliance and analytical ability, but also for his single minded devotion to duty, his amazing language ability, his oratorical skills in English as well as Sinhala and most of all for his many sterling qualities, of which humility, integrity and generosity were only a few.

    Throughout his career, Dr Herat was always the first to get to office and often the last person to leave. He would report to work as early as 6 am, when many of us had barely woken up for the day. Once in office, he would work diligently moving out of his seat only to attend meetings and would spend only a few minutes to grab a hasty lunch, before settling down to work again. His extraordinary language ability made him much sought out for editing documents, which although a boring task to many he would undertake willingly and perform it to perfection. In later years, Dr. Herat was unanimously appointed as the chairman of the Toast Masters Club in the Bank.

    In the days before MS Power Point was available speaking before an audience on a technical subject was a difficult exercise for most of his colleagues. However, Dr. Herat was always able to keep his audience in any forum spell-bound with his oratorical skills probably honed through his experience as a lay preacher in the Methodist Church, of which he was an active member. Yet despite being eminently articulate, he was willing to listen to the view points of others and to forward his own views of matters mildly and modestly, without hurting the feelings of others. He would never force his views on others and was always humble enough to learn from his subordinates the background of any subject in which he was not completely familiar.

    After a short spell in the Statistics Department, he proceeded for postgraduate studies and obtained his M.Sc and PhD degrees from the University of Purdue, USA where he specialized in Finance and International Finance. He was an outstanding doctoral student at Purdue University. In keeping with his commitment to his country, he focused his research on practical development problems facing Sri Lanka – seeking to understand the economy-wide impacts of large scale foreign aid projects. His work was thorough, and of the highest caliber, without being pretentious.

    After his return, he served for a further period in the Statistics Department before being posted to the Economic Research Department as a Senior Economist. As Deputy Director of Economic Research in charge of monetary policy, he made a significant contribution to the Bank’s monetary policy formulation and implementation by streamlining the decision making process and introducing new techniques to the conduct of monetary policy. He was the main architect of establishing Central Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee, a sub-committee of the Monetary Board which continuously reviewed the monetary conditions and made appropriate recommendations to the Board for implementation. Since its establishment in early 2002, Dr Herat functioned as the Secretary to the Monetary Policy Committee. He also played a key role in the preparation of the framework for the introduction of active Open Market Operations System by the Bank. In addition, he has continuously assisted his colleagues to raise the standards of economic research in the Bank. In recognition of these outstanding contributions, Dr Herat was awarded an “Outstanding Service Award” in 2002.

    He quickly rose to be Director, Economic Research, one of the most coveted positions in the Bank. His contributions to Central Bank publications were immense. He prepared a number of policy papers for the guidance of the Monetary Board and policy oriented research papers, some of which were presented at seminars both locally and abroad.

    He was released to the IMF to function as the Alternate Executive Director of the Executive Board representing India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Bhutan. On his return to the Bank, he was promoted to Assistant Governor in charge of Bank Supervision, Supervision of Non-Bank Financial Institutions, Financial Systems Stability and Finance departments. He worked determinedly to strengthen financial system stability and contributed towards averting a major crisis in the financial system following the collapse of unauthorized entities. He was promoted to Deputy Governor and Chairman of the Financial System Stability Committee in May 2009 and could serve only five short-months before his young life was cut-down in its prime. Dr. Herat was also the Central Bank’s representative on the board of the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka and the Insurance Board of Sri Lanka and the Chairman of the Credit Information Bureau and the SAARC Payments Council.

    Humility was one of his greatest virtues. He sought no special treatment or favors on account of his designation. No task was too menial for him to undertake and as Deputy Governor, he even did his own photocopying!. He was always thoughtful and considerate, going out of his way to help others in need. One of the thoughtful acts he performed very early in his career was to prepare a list of personal items to be taken by those proceeding for post-graduate studies which would help those suffering from home-sickness to assuage their pain.

    Dr. Herat’s generosity was without bounds, though perhaps not so well known as he always insisted on anonymity when extending financial support. When there was any list to support someone suffering from ill-health or experiencing financial difficulties, Dr. Herat’s contribution was usually ten times those of others. Often when he was abroad, he would request visiting friends from Sri Lanka to carry a cheque back for some worthy cause. He would buy presents for his colleague’s children even if he had not met them at all.

    Dr. Herat’s loss will be deeply felt in the Central Bank particularly at a time when the financial sector needs to be strengthened to meet greater challenges and to play a catalytic role in the development of a vibrant economy. For his colleagues, friends and family who in the last few days of his life desperately attempted to do all they could to save his life, including religious observances and meritorious activities, the grief will be unbearable. The only consolation is that Dr. Herat contributed more to the Central Bank and his country, touched more lives and helped more people than any of us could do in the biblical time span of two score years and ten. As was said of Sir Thomas More, Dr. Herat was also truly a “Man for all Seasons”.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

  • Annesley Malewana still talks about Radio Ceylon's Vernon Corea

    AnnesleyMalewana

    Whenever the Sri Lankan superstar, the iconic Annesley Malewana performs on stage, he never fails to talk about the legendary Radio Ceylon broadcaster, Vernon Corea. For it was Vernon Corea who helped Clarence Wijewardena, Annesley Malewana and the Moonstones reach a wider audience through his radio programmes over the the airwaves of Radio Ceylon in the 1960s when the Moonstones were yearning to reach the top in the world of music and entertainment.

    The Moonstones who hailed from Ratnapura were first managed by Vernon's cousin, Sri Sangabo Corea. Sangey as he is known asked his cousin to help Clarence Wijewardena, Annesley Malewana and the group. Vernon helped them without hesitation - they visited him frequently in Maha Nuge Gardens and Vernon taught them the workings of public relations and marketing and above all he for the first time introduced their music on the English service, the Commercial Service, of Radio Ceylon. This was an absolute first, for Sinhala popular music to feature on English radio programmes in Sri Lanka. In a sense, Radio Ceylon 'discovered' the Moonstones and helped them on their way to stardom.

    What's more the Moonstones topped the English charts on Radio Ceylon. They became household names as a result of the exposure on the oldest radio station in South Asia. Vernon also took to the print media to help Clarence and Annesley and wrote the first ever article on the Moonstones in his EMCEE Column in the Ceylon Daily News in the 1960s.

    The late Clarence Wijewardena composed 'Piyaneni' as a tribute in song to Vernon's father, Reverend Canon Ivan Corea, who has been the vicar of St.Luke's Church Borella and St.Paul's Church in Milagiriya. Cannon Ivan Corea had served the poorest of the poor - the Rodiya Community in Sri Lanka. Clarence's tribute to Reverend Corea was a moving song about a father's love for his children.

    Not only did Vernon help Annesley when he was in Radio Ceylon, in the 1970s he introduced them to London and a new audience of Londoners when he played the music of the Moonstones and the Super Golden Chimes on his popular BBC Radio London 206 programme, 'London Sounds Eastern,' produced by the legendary Keith Yeomans. Many people in London, in the United Kingdom, sent in requests for songs by Clarence Wijewardena and Annesley Malewana.

    Whenever Annesley Malewana performs, whether it is in Colombo or in Melbourne he never fails to remember Vernon Corea's acts of kindness - he lifted them up when they were young musicians seeking to reach the top. Whenever Annesley sings 'Piyaneni,' he always thinks about Vernon Corea. Vernon broke down in tears when Clarence and Annesley performed the song to a packed London audience in 1994.

  • Clarence Wijewardena composed 'Piyaneni' for Vernon's Father Reverend Canon Ivan Corea

    vernoncoreamahanugegardenscanoncorea3SUPERGOLDENCHIMES

    Vernon Corea mentored Sri Lanka's 'King of Pop' the late Clarence Wijewardena who sadly died on December 13th 1996. The early demise of the great Clarence Wijewardena was a loss to the nation as he was a pioneer of Sinhala Pop music.

    Clarence Wijewardena, Annesley Malewana and the Moonstones hailed from Ratnapura in Sri Lanka. They were managed by Vernon's cousin, advertising man Sri Sangabo Corea. It was Sri Sangabo Corea who approached his cousin Vernon who was working in Radio Ceylon and asked him to help this new group from Ratnapura. Vernon Corea agreed to mentor Clarence Wijewardena, Annesley Malewana and the group - they visited him at his residence in Maha Nuge Gardens in Kollupitiya in the 1960s. It was the beginning of a very close relationship and friendship with Clarence and Annesley.

    The very first news article on the Moonstones was written by Vernon Corea for his EMCEE Column in the Ceylon Daily News. Vernon who had created history by playing Sinhala music for the first time on the English Services of Radio Ceylon soon promoted the music of the Moonstones - 'Dunhinda Manamali,' 'Mango Nanda,' were huge hits over the airwaves of the Commercial Service of Radio Ceylon.

    Clarence asked Vernon if he would write the notes for an Lotus LP Sleeve. Vernon said: "We have all shared the treat of your lovely Lyrics, your tuneful compositions, your friendly presentation and your spontaneous sense of sharing with your followers, your treasury of talent. Keep going, keep growing, keep glowing".

    Clarence and Annesley were frequent visitors to Maha Nuge Gardens when they visited Vernon. It was in Maha Nuge Gardens in Kollupitiya that Clarence and Annesley met Reverend Canon Ivan Corea, Vernon's father, before he died in 1968. Reverend Corea was a gentle human being who had championed the rights of the poor, particularly Sri Lanka's Rodiya Community when he was Vicar of St.Luke's Church, Borella. Clarence composed the heartwarming tribute to a father, 'Piyaneni' in memory of the late Reverend Canon Ivan Corea.

    The recording took place one morning in 1972 at the recording studio of Augie Ranaweera in Bambalapitiya. Clarence and Annesley were backed by the Super Golden Chimes. The musicians needed someone to provide music from a Yamaha organ - Vernon contacted the famed Helen Lucas who agreed to play. Her Yamaha organ had to be transported from her home via a lorry to Augie Ranaweera's studio. Clarence had used the Bossa nova rhythm for this beautiful tribute to Reverend Corea.

    'Piyaneni' soon became a huge hit in South Asia for Clarence Wijewardena, during his lifetime. The vocals were provided by Annesley Malewana. 'Piyaneni' has been sung by Annesley Malewana at music concerts all over the world. When he sings it Annesley can never forget the help and support of Vernon Corea when they were young musicians yearning to hit the big time in the world of popular music in Sri Lanka.

    Annesley recalls: "When we toured England in 1994 to hold musical shows, Vernon Corea who was in England requested me to sing this particular song. When I got on to the stage and started singing Vernon broke down and all of us were moved by this incident. Wherever we go, most people in foreign countries requested me to sing this song. Now I dedicate that song to my late father," he said.

    'Piyaneni' is a moving tribute to a caring and loving father and it was composed by Clarence Wijewardena in memory of the kind hearted priest Reverend Canon Ivan Corea.

  • CNN - UN World Autism Awareness Day Max Foster Interview

    Here is CNN's Max Foster interview with Ivan Corea of the Autism Awareness Campaign UK marking the first ever United Nations World Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April 2008:

    World Autism Awareness Day-CNN

    http://edition.cnn.com/video/#/video/health/2008/04/02/intv.austism.corea.cnn

  • United Nations World Autism Awareness Day

    World Autism Awareness Day

    The UK Autism Foundation has called for action on Poverty and Autism on United Nations World Autism Awareness Day scheduled to be held on 2nd April 2009.

    World Autism Awareness Day was launched for the first time on 2nd April 2008 by the United Nations General Assembly in New York, on the recommendation of the State of Qatar.

    The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a message to mark UN World Autism Awareness Day 2008, paid tribute to the courage of children with autism and their families, who strive every day “to confront the disability with a powerful combination of determination, creativity and hope.”

    In his message marking the Day, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary General, stressed the need to build enabling environments for children with disabilities so they can prosper as future members of their communities, citizens of their countries and as fully-fledged members of the global community.

    “Let us empower them and respond to their needs today, so as to make our societies more accessible, enabling and empowering for all our children tomorrow,” he stated.

    The Secretary-General noted that throughout its history, the UN has promoted the rights and well-being of the disabled, including children with developmental disabilities.

    “It is especially fitting that this inaugural Day falls in 2008 -- the year in which we celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the United Nations Declaration for Human Rights, and expect to see the entry into force of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, adopted by the General Assembly in 2006,” he added.

    The UK Autism Foundation is appealing to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN General Assembly to take action on Poverty and Autism. The credit crunch and the the deepening global economic recession has placed huge pressure on families and adults with autism and Asperger's Syndrome. There are many more families below the poverty line. Many have to decide between heating and eating.

    In the United Kingdom 42 parliamentarians of all parties have signed David Drew MP's early day motion 710 on Autism Sunday, calling for greater financial support for people with autism and Asperger's Syndrome and for an end to re-possessions of homes belonging to families with autism.

    Ivan Corea said: 'The United Nations Secretary General and the UN General Assembly must address the needs of the poor on United Nations World Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April 2009. The global economic recession has brought enormous pressures onto families and adults with autism and Asperger's Syndrome. Many still suffer without proper public services. Now some have to decide between heating and eating as they face Fuel Poverty. They need help in 2009 to face the economic crisis. We appeal to the United Nations to take real action on WAAD.'

    The leaders of G20 countries meet in London on UN World Autism Awareness Day. President Barack Obama is also due in London to attend the G20 Conference. It affords an opportunity for G20 leaders to reach out to families with autism below the poverty line on WAAD.The UK Autism Foundation has urged G20 leaders to help the poor.

    Vernon Corea supported the Autism Awareness Campaign UK.
