Official ceremonies over, guests and invitees participated later in the night in a fellowship event held at the living quarters of the Irrigation Department. Incidentally the two buildings that are now used as living quarters for visitors and resident engineers had in the recent past served as a court house and administrative building for the LTTE in that area. To add finishing to the unique experience , guests,  were treated to the tastes of experimental export quality fruits cultivated from a land that had not long ago been full of bombs and mines.


The credit goes to Eng. N. Suthakaran, Chairman – IESL Northern Provincial Centre and the Executive Committee for the successful establishment of the Mannar District Centre. Together with Eng. N.Kirushanrooban of the Irrigation Department in the region, and his able team of young engineers the fellowship and hospitality to the guests  that followed were superbly organized.
