The Author of “Operation Mänik Farm”, Dilshy Banu  is a Humanitarian Worker, who worked in Manik Farm Transitory Welfare Centres and lived in Mänik Farm during the period she served the Emergency Relief Service. Her experience compelled her to write the this book.

 Dilshy Banu had also written “Goddess of the Shore of Sunrise” – a story which is about the scars of the war left behind one of the coastal districts of Eastern Province, Batticaloa. Although it is categorized as a novel, it’s a story which speaks everything of Batticaloa – it’s history, culture, the scars left behind war, the breakaway of a rebel group; while ending with an unexpected twist. Those who wish to read this also could make an order to StamdfordLake (Pvt) Ltd as well.
