Dr.ANANDA K.COOMARASWAMY

To Ceylon

The year after his marriage he obtained his doctorate in Geology. From then he was Doctor Ananda Coomaraswamy.

The same year he was appointed as a Mines Research Officer in Ceylon. He was glad to be able to go back to the land where he was born and where his father had lived and achieved fame. He left for Ceylon with Ethel Mary.

Twenty-three years earlier ~e had left Ceylon for England with his mother. Then he was an infant and the future was uncertain. Now after completing his education he was returning to Ceylon with his wife. He was an officer in the Department of Geology. He was on the threshold of a new life.

After a voyage of three months, the ship reached Ceylon.

Ananda Coomaraswamy was extremely happy. He reported for work the day after his arrival in Ceylon. Though his job was geological research his path lay elsewhere.
