The Elephant and Malalasekera

This afternoon we put up a batik Elephant given by G.P.Malalasekera’s daughter to the wife’s mother. She visted the family, from a modest Birmingham suburb, when he was High Commissoner for Ceylon in Great Britain 1963-1966.

I found this obituray in The Eatern Buddhist; Volume 6, (1973) pp 166-168 on JSTOR.

It speaks highly of him.
