The sorrowful story which unfolds about thirty-four year historical Ranga who died from a lorry – lorry accident in Kandy last 6th whilst serving as a driver in a newspaper transport institution.
“We used to call Ranga ‘teddy bear’ and as a pet name. It was I who would wait for him till Saturday … to cuddle his son and spend time in affection. But why did this tragedy manifest to fall on this very
day?”. It used to be in that manner that wife of K.T.D. Ranga began wailing about her husband’s death, the latter of whom passed away in sanatorium having met with an accident close to Kegalle Balika College on the morning hurs of remaining 5th.
The said accident took region while serving as a driver of a newspaper transport institution when the van pushed by way of Ranga had struck another lorry parked through the roadside. Ranga who was once hospitalised for two days sooner or later passd away at the intensive care unit in Kandy clinic on the 7th. Ranga Gayan who was serving for a newspaper agent in Kandy had set off in the direction of kandy remaining 4th toward middle of the night with the notion of handing over the weekend newspapers to selling-outlets as soon as possible. the accident befell when he had as normal delivered the newspapers from Pasyala town to their dealers and had been on his way to Kealle after delivering newspapers to different selling-outlets.
According to what Ranga’s wife, Ashnika Darshani (33) says, the lorry driven through Ranga had knocked in opposition to a fertilizer lorry parked close to Kegalle Balika Vidyalaya. “that lorry had been there in an unprotected manner for over twenty four hours there. Maybe it had a technical fault. When I visited Ranga at hospital, he held me with the aid of the hand and said, ‘aney … I do not comprehend what befell to me; I did not see anything’. Can a big vehicle like that be parked in an unsafe manner for so many days? Whatever it is I lost my son’s father”. Asnika who was once in tears when we met her at her home at 1/491, Meekanuwa, Ampitiya additionally had this to say: “It is eleven years for May twelfth due to the fact we bought married. Both of us have by no means ever engaged in a quarrel for this eleven years as such. Every day it was round four in the evening that he would leave home to supply the newspapers. It is at about 5 in the nighttime that their automobile leaves from Kandy. Ranga worked in that company for about 6 years. Because of the night time duties I did no longer like it very much. But due to the fact he gained the hearts of those at his work-place and honestly, he should now not go away that place. He loved working there very much. Ranga used to cme home the following morning round 8 He would depart as soon as once more at about four in the evening. All of us would seem ahead till Saturday comes. Aney … such a day would in no way sunrise once more for our family. It was once when Kegalle police known as me early Saturday morning that we came to understand of the accident. Immediately we went to Kegalle. Aney, even at that moment he spoke well. He was once then transferred to Kandy General Hospital”.
After being admitted to the intensive care uga surpassed away remaining 7th. Ashen Nethma is Ranga Gayan’s solely son. Ashen following his research at St. Sylvester College in grade 5 is one of the sensible college students in the class. Ranga had been so taken up through exploits of his son in school. In reality he had been counting his fingers to attend the second when his son used to be to be awarded reputation of prefect in a few greater months. Small Ashen not being able to undergo the loss of life of his father used to be getting closer and closer to his mother as the solely protector of her in the future.
Mary Beatrice is Ranga Gayan’s mother. She too broke down at the loss of her son, bringing to reminiscences of Ranga. He never took liquor or cigarettes. He related all and sundry without racial or non secular discrimination. Proprietor of Kandy Jayakody Newspaper Transport establishment, Mr. J.M.K. Jayakody related Ranga Gayan as an sincere pal more than as an employee. “Ranga is in employment with us for a variety of years. Newspapers of all agencies are distributed from Pasyala to Matale by means of him. in such situations he offers every day and weekend newspapers to about 60 agents. Though he was a driver, he saved shut contact with most human beings in printing divisions and distribution of all newspaper companies. We lost a terrific person”, said Mr. Jayakody.
At all instances what he tried was once to deliver the newspaper to agents as quickly as possible. At instances he would go beyond his obligations and two would go to the printing distributing division and would lend a hand to them and for that reason received the hearts of everyone in that manner. With this accident, his purse, cellular phone, riding license and all other documents have been both robbed or are missing anyhow. On the one hand it is certainly disgusting to hear of something like this in a tragedy of this sort. Ranga who was born on September 17th, 1983 would have been thirty-four years of age at the time of his death; alternatively he was beyond his age so to say and was a pal to everyone. When Ranga departed, he had nothing to take with him. What was once left was once the existence he led as an exemplary character. Nishantha Bandara (42) who confronted serious accidents being Ranga’s lorry assistant was admitted to Kegalle Basic Hospital for remedy and later transferred to Kandy General Hospital. He who is a father of two children and living in Katugasthota is under cure at the intensive care unit of Kandy General Hospital.
