Wellawatta Nithyakalyani Jewellery, a pioneer in the gem and jewellery trade in Sri Lanka, celebrated its 40th anniversary in grand style recently. The company which began its journey in 1978 has been in the forefront over the last 40 years and today is a leading exporter of jewellery in Sri Lanka. Nithyakalyani Jewellery which launched a series of social service programs this year to mark its 40-year celebrations installed a drinking water dispenser for the general public in front of its showroom in Wellawatta.

The aim of installing the dispenser along Galle Road was to assist the general public who travel daily along the road to quench their thirst. This brings back memories of the ‘Pin Thaliya’ which existed in our villages in the past. The ‘Pin Thaliya’ was a large bowl or cauldron of water, kept along the road to help villagers walking along to quench their thirst. This water dispenser installed by Nithyakalyani Jewellery can be used by the general public at any given time of the day.
