Preparations to feed 300+ guests for dinner on 30th March 2012

All hands on Deck! 20 helpers to cook for the night's guests

Oh What a sight?

The cooks surround the pot

What scrummy dish is that I see?

Akila and Issanka

Mahesh after a long drive the previous day coming to Ratmale only at 9.30pm in the cab.

As usual only imbibing and not working!

Pol Kiri for the curries

Cooking in progress

The pose

Fried fresh lake fish

Leela at work

Akila and Sagara pretending to work

Who is pouring the oil?

Women at work and the men at play

Pouring the coconut oil into the huge wok!

Tell me who bends down more than a cook in rural Sri Lanka

Cooks X 20!!

End of the cooking

Unloading stuff from the cab

At the well towards the evening

Clearing and cleaning at the well
