Some processions even culminatein a musical show.

Daily papers, weekend papers… all dedicate a few of their pages to this May Day. More often than not, the worn out, sweat adorned face of a working class comrade in Pettah, is seen portrayed in these papers. But have you ever seen those comrades in any of these May Day processions?
