Journalist Upul Wickramasinghe’s maiden publication – ‘Makara Deshaye Sita’ was launched at 3.00 pm today (Aug. 08) at the Public Library Auditorium in Colombo.
Upul has penned this book based on his personal experiences while travelling in different provinces across China for a period of 10 months.
Prof. Nirmal Ranjith Devasiri of the Department of History and Prof. Sirimal Abeyratne of the Department of Economics at the Colombo University delivered speeches at the launch.
Speaking about his book, Mr. Wickramasinghe said : “Makara Deshaye Sita is my first book. I was looking for inspiration to pen a book and I got the opportunity in 2018 when I was visiting China. My aim was to shine a light on the places and cultural aspects I saw during my travels in China.”
The book, a ‘Rusiyawa Publication’, can be purchased from the ‘Duishen ge Pothhala’ store in Nugegoda.
