One evening a young man in his late 20s came to see me. And he made a request. He said he’s organizing a Tele Awards ceremony and that he wants me to compose a theme song for this particular awards ceremony. I was not so impressed with awards anyway. But I accepted this proposal. It was all because of the young Thilanga Sumathipala. Thilanga and I met a couple of evenings. We had long conversations. Thilanga had an understanding of the use of music in England. Somehow, despite many debates and discussions, we made the theme music. And today, the whole country is listening to this music.
