Journalism that propelled me into blogging

by Dushiyanthini Kanagasabapathipillai

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.
