movement of the Navagrahas is considered to have a major role in influencing the fortunes of any individual. In order to mitigate the negative effects of a planet which is debilated in the birth chart or to provide more potency to a planet that is in an exalted state, believers undertake pilgrimage to designated Navagraha temples. Similarities noted in cultural exchange In the 13th century, international travelers, such as Giovanni de Piano Carpini and William of Ruysbroeck, sent back reports of Buddhism as a religion whose scriptures, doctrine, saints, monastic life, meditation practices, and rituals were comparable to those of Christianity and of Nestorian Christian communities in close proximity to traditionally Buddhist communities. Macmillan Encyclopedia of Buddhism, 2004, page 160 When European Christians made more direct contact with Buddhism in the early 16th century, many Catholic missionaries (e.g. Francis Xavier) sent home idyllic accounts of Buddhism. At the same time, however, Portuguese colonizers of Sri Lanka confiscated Buddhist properties across the country, with the full cooperation of the Christian missionaries. This repression of Buddhism in Sri Lanka continued during the rule of subsequently the Dutch and the English. Portuguese historian Diego de Conto reminded the Vatican that their Christian tradition of Saint Josaphat (Barlaam and Josaphat) was actually the Buddha. Daniel Hopkins ''Father and Son, East is West, the Buddhist sources to Christianity and their influence on medieval Christianity'' self published 2007 Buddhist influence on Greek culture Although Greek rulers as far as the Mediterranean are mentioned as having received Buddhist missionaries, only in Bactria and the Kabul valley did Buddhism really take root. Also, the statement in the late Buddhist chronicle of the Mahavamsa, that among the Buddhists who came to the dedication of a great Stupa in Sri Lanka in the 2nd century BCE, "were over thirty thousand monks from the vicinity of Alassada, the capital of the Yona country" is sometimes taken to suggest that long before the time of Christ, Alexandria in Egypt was the centre of flourishing Buddhist communities. Although it is true that Alassada is the Pali for Alexandria; but it is usually thought that the city meant here is not the ancient capital of Egypt, but as the text indicates, the chief city of the Yona country, the Yavana country of the rock-inscriptions: Bactria and vicinity. And so, the city referred to is most likely Alexandria of the Caucasus. Siri Gunasinghe was born in Kegalle District of Sri Lanka. He was educated at Mahinda College, Galle and University of Ceylon.

Inter-ethnic marriages between European men and Indian women were very common during colonial times. According to the historian William Dalrymple, about one in three European men (mostly British (British people), as well as Portuguese (Portuguese people), French (French people), Dutch (Dutch people), and to a lesser extent Swedes and Danes) had Indian wives in colonial India. This was primarily because the European men came to India when they were young and there were very few white women available in India. One of the most famous intermarriages was between the Anglo-Indian (Anglo-Indians) resident James Achilles Kirkpatrick and the Hyderabadi (Hyderabad State) noblewoman and descendant of prophet Mohammed, Khair-un-Nissa. During the British East India Company's rule in India (Company rule in India) in the late 18th century and early 19th century, it was initially fairly common for British officers and soldiers to take local Indian wives. The 600,000 strong Anglo-Indian community has descended from such unions. There is also a story of an attractive Gujjar princess falling in love with a handsome English nobleman and the nobleman converted to Islam so as to marry the princess. The 65,000 strong Burgher (Burgher people) community of Sri Lanka was formed by the intermarriages of Dutch (Dutch people) and Portuguese (Portuguese people) men with local Sinhalese (Sinhalese people) and Tamil (Tamil people) women. Intermarriage also took place in Britain (United Kingdom) during the 17th to 19th centuries, when the British East India Company brought over many thousands of Indian (British Indian) scholars, ''lascars'' and workers (mostly Bengali (British Bangladeshi)) who settled down in Britain and took local British wives, some of whom went to India with their husbands. In the mid-19th century, there were around 40,000 British soldiers but less than 2,000 British officials present in India. thumb The Colombo City Town Hall in Cinnamon Gardens houses the Town Council and other municipal offices (Image:TownhallColombo.jpg) The '''Colombo Municipal Council''' is the local council (Politics of Sri Lanka#Local government structure) for Colombo, the largest city and financial centre in Sri Lanka.
