About the Book

This autobiography, set in the social, economic and educational history of Sri Lanka (Ceylon), is an exceptionally informative and entertaining work. Nandasiri Jasentuliyana describes his humble beginnings, his sports oriented youth, and the successes and stresses of his carefully directed education. He recounts the triumphs and tragedies of his adult life with a humor, perceptiveness and profundity rarely consolidated in any single work. Every page rewards the reader with exploding colors in this kaleidoscope of the author’s journey through life.

The journey of my life is interwoven with the journeys of an uncountable number of others; family, teachers, colleagues, role models. Each place I travelled through, each person I met, perhaps by being at the right place at the right time, perhaps through sheer chance, molded me into the person I am today. This then, is as much their story as it is mine. — The Author.
