    A rare combination of insightful research and arresting images. Thank you for including the link to Marilyn Krysl’s Fire Inside. What cruelty must humans endure at the hands of others… how can we hold our heads up and pretend as though these cruelties are washed away with the waves?

    Interesting information here. You’ve certainly created quite a discussion through the exhibition and website – and the media coverage.

        The exhibition will now be held from April 28-30. It had to be postponed because the university had to be temporarily and unexpectedly closed during the dates scheduled earlier.

    Tamil Hindus and Sinhala Buddhist have been at
    war without realizing how much they have in common, how much they share — one
    important example is their devotion to the Goddess Pattini. Thank you for revealing this important but
    hidden connection through your exhibitions and this wonderful website.
