Finding my stride (aka happy three months, Sri Lanka!)

Sri Lanka and I recently celebrated our three month anniversary. While that might sound silly – because obviously I’m not actually in a relationship with this beautiful island – the word “anniversary” is the best way I can describe how I’m celebrating the past three months I’ve spent in the country. 1,106 more words

My take: Seasons of Trouble

Rohini Mohan’s debut novel touches upon a sensitive topic: the Sri Lankan war against the LTTE.

Australia edge past Sri Lanka in Dilshan's ODI farewell

Australia scraped past Sri Lanka by two wickets to spoil Tillakaratne Dilshan’s one-day farewell and go 2-1 up in the five-match series on Sunday.

Opting to bat first, Sri Lanka were all out for 226 with four balls remaining, a total built around Dinesh Chandimal’s gutsy 102 in an otherwise poor batting display by the hosts in the third match of the series. 306 more words
