2006: After the death of 75-year-old 'Chandru', the 'vacancy' for a tusker remains unfilled for the last three-years for carrying the karanduwe in the Esala Perahera of the Bellanwilla Raja Maha Viharaya. "Chandru' was the only tusker for the entire Western province and now the province has to beg the services of the two tuskers belonging to the Gampaha District.
