1. The Book –AtapattuWalawwa - Residencies of the Gooneratne and Dias Abeyesinghe Familes

Too often today the vast reservoir of knowledge that emanates from our glorious 2500 year old history is disregarded and dismissed rendering us mere appendages to Western hegemony. It is to help arrest this potentially ruinous zeitgeist that AtapattuWaluawa was written, through a meticulous exploration of the lifestyles, technologies and above all through an elucidation of the guiding philosophy of our ancestors, lessons immensely relevant for modern times are wrought. The central thesis of the book revolves around – as the name suggests – the historic mansion known as AtapattuWaluawa in Galle and by weaving its narrative through the shrouded mists of time, the book masterfully sheds light on us.
