Children in Sri Lanka have had a taste of some especially horrible things in the recent past.: terror attacks, curfews, power cuts, school disruptions, food shortages, violence and epic political letdowns to name just a few. And yet, in the midst of it all, an unlikely hero has emerged - the neigbourhood Choon Paan Man! He has magically shown up, no matter what, every day, just in time for tea. His freshly baked Gnanakatha and Kimbula bunis have seen whole communities through. Could the Choon Paan Man be our very own Santa?
Mr Choon Paan is a humble tribute to this local legend.
