About Me


I am Crystal Fernando from Sri Lanka. Now I am a university student in the Access Academy, Asian University for Women (AUW) in Bangladesh. I have come here to get my masters on Business Management as my interest is in this field. What most fascinated me is the competition which is going on now in the market and I would like to be a part of it. Another reason for my interest is that I don’t see Sri Lanka playing a good role in this market. Therefore, I chose the business path for my career life. I believe one day I will win in this rapidly growing market as there can be only one win for a time.

My intention of writing this blog started as I am away from Sri Lanka. It is around one year I’m a way and I miss it a lot. Also my love toward my country grew more and more when the days were going by. My mom use to say that a person has to lose something to appreciate it, so that is what has happen to me. However, surrounded with many other country students as this university says, I have understood that Sri Lanka has been lucky with many ways but there are some things which have made this country miserable. Concerning all these issues, I thought of bring them to the international attention so that we all can write our thoughts, suggestions and solution to all the address problems. I hope you all will enjoy reading my blog and feel free to leave any comments.

Enjoy Rising of Ceylon



  1. Wishing you good luck to succeed your life in your own path and have a fantastic time in writing your blog. We, the readers, have more expectations about Sri Lankan issues. I hope that you will bring them into discussion.

    Keep going….

  3. I feel the same way as u do…I’m in one of the most developed country; Japan…but I always feel
    I miss something…that is our..Srilankanness…I would say…

  4. I’ve never been to Sri Lanka but I miss it! My father, Kenneth Blythe-Perrett, was born there (Kandy, Battacaloa?) but came to India as a young man. He married and lived in and around Calcutta, where I was born, and where I am not, for over 40 years now!

    Dad spoke of Ceylon with great affection and reverence as to its beauty etc. I long to visit. It seems to be a paradise in so many ways.

    My paternal grandmother was Adeline Albrecht, should anyone know of her of the Albrechts, as well as the Blythe-Perretts…
