Favorite Folktales of Sri Lanka
aAs a child I remember sitting on the lap of my grandma listening to stories. A great storyteller, I could listen to her all day till she finally lulled me to sleep, in a peaceful lullaby.a Sri Lankan children born and bred in America miss the influence of grandparents and close relatives left behind in their homeland, and grow up without a firm knowledge of customs, stories and songs that molded the values and lifestyles of their parents and grandparents. Written to mark the sixtieth (Golden Jubilee) Independence Anniversary of Sri Lanka, the stories in this collection hopefully will give young people an opportunity to learn something of their homeland.
