Senanayake, S.W.R.D Bandaranaike, J.R Jayawardene, J.L Kothalawala, Sir Oliver Goonetilleke, T.B Jayah, Dudley Senanayake etc. Resigning from his Ministerial post in an era of rising communal tension, he composed open letters to his grandchildren, venting his disenchantment, and decrying the direction that Ceylon’s newly gained independence was talking under the stewardship of her elected officials. These letters, Serialized in newspapers over fifty years ago, present an insight into a version of events that contributed to our turbulent, recent history.
