Sanath Jayasuriya : Behind every succesfull man.............




In Jayasuriya's case, his his mother Breeda is the key for every success:



Ajwad Ikram is one of the teacher who taught Jayasuriya at the class of grade
VI-XII.


Ikram told "He was very good in sports, but not so good at studies".He was not
from a well-to-do-family and
needed support.When he was first selected in the
youth
team for the tour of Australia, we asked for donations from all staff
members and gave him
Rs 5,000.When Sanath Jayasuriya was at the peak of
his power
during the 1996 World Cup,a banner at an Indian stadium sticks out in
memory.
It shows like :"Can't Indian mothers give birth to one Jayasuriya?".
Breeda,the 64-year-old mother of Jayasuriya ,she is a simple and deeply
religious lady.

secret of success:Whenever Jayasuriya went home, his mother takes him to
offer prayers at their temple
and the priest ties a white thread on their wrists,
which is 'the secret of his success'.
(snap no 3).
Breeda's last dream:"She believe he will be able to play the next World Cup".
Helping Nature: He helped build the prayer hall in the temple he visit.
It is now named after him as "Jayasumanarmaya"
