Journalism that propelled me into blogging
by Dushiyanthini Kanagasabapathipillai
My blog is a non-partisan site with diverse views. It is dedicated to the promotion of ethical journalism—a conscious decision on my part. It captures conflict, culture, events, nature, peace, people, tradition, and other subjects, in articles and photos. I travelled solo to the war zone to capture images—a first for a Tamil woman journalist in Sri Lanka.

Fourteen year old Niranjana Balakrishnan lost her parents in the conflict. She is the only child in the family. She stayed at the Tender Sprouts pre-tsunami location in Mullaithivu coast on December 26, 2004. She was holding her three year old friend Arabi, but lost control and let her go with the wave. She carried Arabi's body from Mullaithivu to Mulliyawalai. Since then she had nightmares about the Tsunami. Tender Sprouts has now moved twelve kilometers inland, in Udayakattu.
