The first book I ever owned was Hans Christian Andersen’s Emperor and the Nightingale ; I would have been about 5 or 6 years old and I remember the exact moment my white-haired great-aunt handed it to me saying, ‘I heard you like to read’, and the awe and sense of wonderment with which I […]
I’ve been working on an article for Ceylon Today, for which I need some information; information that must come from a particular Ministry in the government. I began calling them last Friday. It’s been a week almost now and I’ve got nowhere. Every time I call for the Deputy Director of that department, I am […]
