By: Savannah Audrey
As you drive along the Colombo-Kandy road passing Nittambuwa, a few kilometers away, lies a street display: Kajugama. From a distance, you will spot the vibrant colors of the clothes of the female sellers (Kaju girls as they are fondly called). Kajugama is known for its beautiful girls in traditional dresses of cloth and jacket and long hair who will greet you with vibrant smiles.

Cashew in Sri Lanka
It is said that the Portuguese sailors are the ones who introduced cashew to Sri Lanka. Cashew is something that no one can resist and is used in enhancing the flavor of various dishes. Kaju curry, a delicacy in Sri Lankan cuisine, is a must at most functions held in the country which serves rice and curry. It is not only tasty but is also loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  Cashew cultivation involves a lot of risks. The shelling process is laborious and time consuming.

The cashew season in Sri Lanka begins in March and continues through April. Vendors in Kajugama get their nuts from Wariyapola, Wanathavillu, Wewagama, Giriulla, Kalpitiya, Puttalam, Ampara, Mahiyangana, Galgamuwa, Galewela, and villages in the Eastern Province.  The global cashew economy is booming and Sri Lanka has to compete with some of the largest cashew exporters in the world including Africa, Brazil, Vietnam, and neighboring India.

By: Vison Care
Purchasing a pair of sun glasses or shades is not matter to be taken lightly and is not similar to buying clothes and shoes as the right choice matters for our eyes! Most often, folks opt to buy low quality shades, which cause excessive damage to the eyes; hence prevention is definitely better than cure.

Vision-Care-Sri-Lanka

Let us first look at the benefits of using a pair of sunglasses;

01] Its fashionable
02] Reduces the sun’s glare
03] Protects the eyes from ultra violet radiations from the sun
04] Protects eyes from external hazards

According to the above, any pair of shades/ sunglasses sold in the market can be used for fashion, can reduce inconvenience caused by the sun’s glare and protect those peeps from external hazards, but to protect the eye from UV rays, it is compulsory to use a sun glass with UV blocking lenses.

In addition, the sun glass- lense- production method contributes to its quality. One way of producing lenses is by excessively heating and fitting the colorful flat glasses with a curved effect. Due to minor changes in the curvature of such lenses, the images visible to the eye can be somewhat blurred. Also, these lenses are not capable of blocking UV light.

The second method of producing sun glass lenses is the direct production of sun glass lenses. These lenses do not have above mentioned defects.
With these lenses, the UV blocking lens is also best suited for use as sunglasses.

Some folks choose to ignore these minor concerns regarding quality and choose shades at random but this may have a debilitating effect to the eyes. Once the naked eye is exposed to the sun the pupil contracts and a small amount of the sun’s rays goes in to the eye. In view of this, the UV rays also decreases.
