Honestly speaking all the participants were a bit apprehensive about participation in the International Conference in a city which has bomb blasts rather frequently in spite of being removed fromJafna and north eastern part of the Island nation of Sri Lanka.
Selected by Govermnemnt of India and sponsored by the UNAIDS,I was not very keen about the venue for the above mentioned reasons strengthend by the perceptions(and misconception) of many friends and colleagues In Tamilnadu.
The stay was a pleasant surprise because of the extremely hospitable behaviour evinced at the hotel,venue and all the places of visit in the city.
It never gave even a remotest semblance of a strife torn city/nation as feeling of celebration,camaraderie and confidence was writ large on all the faces.
The hotel people were very courteous and extended all types of help definitely not mentioned in their job descriptions which made the stay in Taj Samudra Colombo a memorable one.
