Sri Lanka : Voices From A War Zone (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.399

"?If we don?t tell our stories, who will?? They were ordinary people-farmers, fisherfolk, businessmen, pensioners, housewives and school children-until a relentless war machine invaded their lives. These are their stories-stories of intense suffering, but also of great courage, resilience and dignity.

Nirupama Subramanian, a journalist who spent seven years reporting the vicious face-off between Sri Lanka?s government and the separatist LTTE, criss-crossed the towns and villages of a beautiful but ravaged island to uncover these ?little histories? as she calls them-of children forcibly recruited into Tiger training camps; of parents waiting for mass graves to reveal their bleak secrets; of people fleeing their homes in war zones only to become prisoners in refugee camps; of the families of the missing who still wait and hope; of women in the maid-trade bonded in virtual slavery in foreign lands.

Woven into these narratives are the larger stories-of a President, Chandrika Kumaratunga, elected with a massive mandate for peace but trapped in a war so intense that she was unable to make good her promise; and of Tiger supremo Vellupillai Prabhakaran, trapped too, but in a cage fashioned out of his own egoism and ruthlessness-one he never dare leave. As Sri Lanka searches for an elusive peace, read this book to understand the price that Sri Lankans have paid for a war that has raged for over twenty years."
