    Was it Swami Vivekananda or someone else representing Ceylon?

    The Geneva Lake Museum has an exhibit which is all about the building that Ceylon government built for the 1893 World's fair. I found information about Vivekananda but he was born in India and I am concerned that he was not the Ceylon representative. When Ceylon was under the British was Ceylon and India considered the same country and Ceylon a Provence of India?

    Can someone please help me out and clear up the history. I don't wish to mislead people. Thank you very much!
