Didn't fans love Prins enough? Talk about funeral house being isolated

Various news items frequently reported during the past months about Prins Udaya Priyantha who incidentally passed away day-before-yesterday. How various organisations, politicians took a hand in helping him when he was sick was mentioned in those reports. Even funds were raised for his medical treatment. However, it was a small crowd who visited Sudarshi to see his body from
yesterday to today, it is understood. Among them artistes too were few and far in between. Apart from chief officers of Sri Lanka Gayaka Gaikawange Sangamaya, others have not joined in when his body was being taken to his home in Elpitiya. If groups failed to turn up in Colombo, it would not increase in number any further at Elpitiya either.

The final rites are expected to be done there tomorrow Sunday (10) and the reason why thousands of his fans observing silence on this occasion is something that must be inquired into seriously. One criticism which surfaced at the time Prins was among the living and was on sick-bed was about burdening his expenses on others. Asking for aid after his death to foot the hospital bill from yesterday was another factor which came into criticism by some people. As Prins was not classified amongst the classical category, there may have been a split in those who offered their respects to the deceased. What really happened to Prins Udayantha who had an untimely death should be taken into thought of by all artistes as such.
