A great man indeed!
I remember coming across his name in my Lonely Planet (Sri Lanka):
Around Tissamaharama, Kirinda was used as a land base by Sir Arthur C Clarke's party when diving for the Great Basses wreck
A passionate scuba-diver, he set up the Arthur C. Clarke Diving School at Hikkaduwa.
If you haven't checked out The Arthur C Clarke Foundation already, please do.

This book was one among the many from his collection that were donated to the British Council's Library in Colombo.
( Katty was the lucky one to borrow this particular book. I still remember her screaming:"Shek! Come and take a look at this. It's really coooool!" )
I'd wanted to post these on Sir Arthur's last birthday and I completely blew it. It's a pity I have to post 'em when he is no more.
