Other Writing


This is the 2005 edition [10 MB] of Romulus magazine, the magazine of Wolfson College, Oxford. I was editor of this and did the layout on InDesign.

Between March and early June of 2002 I worked as an intern at the Sri Lankan state-owned newspaper, the (Ceylon) Daily News. Below are a few articles I wrote at the time.




On 10th April 2002, I attended a press conference held by Velupillai Prabhakaran and Anton Balasingham, the military leader and theoretician respectively of the LTTE (the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam). Here is my account.

A year later I wrote a paper analysing the Sri Lankan conflict. That is here and it is called 'Understanding the Sri Lankan Conflict'.
