"By the time I joined Lake House the foundation for the Sri Lankan conflict had been firmly laid. Since then I have reported the events that turned Sri Lanka, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, into The Tear Drop Island and The Killing Field.
It is definitely a sad story. It is sad especially to the men and women of my generation who celebrated the birth of independent Ceylon waving frantically the Lion Flag.
I will relate this melancholy story which I was destined to cover for Tamil and English language newspapers in Sri Lanka and abroad." July 17, 2010 – T Sabaratnam - Deputy Editor of the Daily News, Journalist, Sangam,”
