Prof V.K Samaranayake has passed away.I know it’s not news now. But I must express my deepest sympathies as an IT enthusiast who love Lankan IT.
He was such an attractive personality. I still can remeber the days I started to love IT (well I started to love the computer, not IT). My hero was Bill Gates. And prof.V.K Samaranayake was the lanken hero in IT,for me.
I got shocked when I saw the text message from seejay saying that the Professor has passed away. Wanted to express my feelings here on my blog but Unfortunately I’m far away from computers & interenet these days.
I shouldn’t try to describe his contribution to IT industry in Sri Lanka because I’d miss a million of facts for sure. His service is…ugh I don’t have words to describe.
Dear proffessor, you are the mark of Lankan IT. I take my hat off at the ultimate contribution & dedication you made for Lankan IT.
