An award-winning media personality, Savithri Rodrigo has been active in print and electronic media for well over three decades. A corporate writer, media trainer, news anchor, reporter and interviewer, she has authored several books, including her most recent biography, 'They Call Him Ken - the Life and Times of Ken Balendra', in addition to award-winning reports and publications. 

He is a revolutionary,  but not the violent kind. 

Instead, Hemaka Amarasuriya transformed corporate Sri Lanka's method of thinking, asserting a quiet firmness that soon became his trademark style. Hemaka Amarasuriya is arguably Sri Lanka's 'intrapreneurship' pioneer, propelling the sewing machine and its brand to heights unknown and horizons unimagined. Singer Sri Lanka is now a case study for marketing and branding experts: Philip Kotler himself uses Singer Sri Lanka as a glowing example of a successful company that was always ahead of the curve. Amassing accolades for his unfettered thought processes that built teams, brands and portfolios, Hemaka remains in the lead as an undisputed Marketing Guru. He is renowned for marrying an unorthodox management style with non-conformist team building and revolutionary leadership approaches that are today tangibly visible within not just Singer Sri Lanka, NDB and Sri Lanka Insurance which he spearheaded, but also in the past on the sports grounds, be it cricket, rugby, hockey or motorsports.

However, this is not merely a story about a brain ticking continually, pioneering pathways and charting new journeys; it is the story of an individual who faced highs and lows at work and at home. Yet, the 5'11" mogul continues to stand tall and proud, wielding an indomitable strength that is always visible, riding the times at full gallop and indelibly inking history, all the while leading, motivating, mentoring, guiding, and most significantly, pioneering.

Incidents in the life of a surgeon, working in Ceylon Sri Lanka, from 1965 to 2005

"One month after assuming duties as DMO, I took delivery of the car in Colombo. That evening, with me seated by his side, my driver drove it through the night to Koslande 200 miles away. We reached home at about 2 a.m. the next day and went to sleep, dog-tired. On the next morning, we found a patch of oil beneath one wheel of the newly acquired car. The fault was a leak of brake-fluid. A faulty brake-washer from the wheel-cylinder had caused it. It was easily replaced, though it seemed an inauspicious beginning to a relationship with my new vehicle."

As a natural sequel to the hugely successful Remembered Vignettes, Dr. Philip Veerasingam traces his trajectory as a country doctor posted in remote and rural parts of Sri Lanka, culminating as Consultant Surgeon in Colombo. Travel with him on this fascinating journey and re-live the difficult working conditions and the necessity to improvise solutions on the job.

C. Anjalendran is the grandson of C. Suntharalingam - academic, lawyer and a member of independent Ceylon's first cabinet of ministers

The controversial Professor of Mathematics, scholar and lawyer from Vavuniya – C. Suntharalingam, was a member of independent Ceylon's first cabinet of Ministers alongside D.S Senanayake, S.W.R.D Bandaranaike, J.R Jayewardene, J.L Kotelawala, Sir Oliver Goonetilleke, T.B Jayah, Dudley Senanayake etc. Resigning from his Ministerial post in an era of rising communal tension, he composed open letters to his grandchildren, venting his disenchantment, and decrying the direction that Ceylon's newly gained independence was taking under the stewardship of her elected officials. These letters, serialised in newspapers over fifty years ago, present an insight into a version of events that contributed to our turbulent, recent history.
