The interviews, by Rajiva Wijesinha, cover a range of developments in post-independence Sri Lanka, and present a panoramic view of social change in the latter half of the 20th century. Sam Wijesinha was Secretary General of Parliament and later Sri Lanka’s first Ombudsman.   Curiosity piqued, Wijesinha would find that once you discovered the Camino it simply wouldn’t go away. “I’d see it everywhere,” he laughs. From books to magazines and even on television, the Camino was ever present and with the passing of a close friend Wijesinha decided that it was time to take a much needed break from his heavy schedule.

Professor Rajiva Wijesinha, son of late Sam Wijesinha, Former Parliamentary Secretary General is a member of the Liberal Party of Sri Lanka. In June President Mahinda Rajapakse appointed him Secretary-General of the Sri Lankan Government Secretariat for Co-ordinating the Peace Process, and in June he became the Secretary to the Ministry of Disaster Management and Human Rights. Bridging Connections - Rajiva Wijesinha -This short collection brings to you twenty five engaging stories from Sri Lanka\\'s best known storytellers. The country\\'s simmering ethnic and political violence provides the backdrop to many of these narratives. Told with innate sensitivity to the turbulence and social complexities of their times, these stories bridge connections for a young nation.

A superbly written and engaging collection set in places ranging from Sri Lanka during the war against the Tamil Tigers to the Falkland Islands in the nineteen eighties, Wijesinha's book is in the same league as George Sava's Surgery Holds the Door and Arthur Conan Doyle's Round /5(12).
