Winning Sri Lanka’s peace

Winning Sri Lanka’s peace

8 April 2015 OPINION Commentary / World By Ranil Wickremesinghe Winning a war or revolution, only to lose the subsequent peace, is one of the grim political truths of our time.

Today, a half-decade after the end of its 36-year civil war, Sri Lanka is at a crucial moment in its own efforts to consolidate peace and secure its long-term benefits. Newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena...

In the Hills of Sri Lanka’s Tea Country

By ROBERT DRAPER MARCH 27, 2015 The man in the khaki vest slurped noisily from his cup, descended briefly into scowling meditation, spat the contents into a sink and then unleashed a torrent of approving descriptors, lavishly rolling his r’s along the way: “No foreign taste, very refreshing, robust, strong tannins, a tingly sensation at the end of the tongue — good show!” I sipped as well and nodded gravely, thinking: right, but it’s still tea. Granted, it was excellent tea, cultivated just outside the Norwood Estate processing factory where we stood, surrounded by whirring machines and immense bags stuffed with tea leaves. Here, near the town of Hatton, in the alluring hill...
