Today, more South Asian Conversations with three writers whose work engages, in very different ways, with the complex ethnic, linguistic, and religious realities of Sri Lanka. Eleanor speaks with S. Pathmanathan, a highly regarded Tamil translator as well as an accomplished poet, Sunethra Rajakarunanayake - probably the most famous contemporary writer working in Sinhala, and finally, Ayathurai Santhan, a highly respected writer in both Tamil and English.
