When I started my Ph D in Bolton, UK, she was very happy to provide me with the narrative story of her ‘Life with Dyslexia’ as part of my Ph D studies.
What interested me more was how dyslexia has become an inter-generational challenge, since her only son was also diagnosed with dyslexia.
Most of these are presented in their original quotation format to provide personal accounts of the lives of people with dyslexia.
Strangely even the President’s Media Unit attempted to as the Chairman of Sri Lanka Telecom.
Both mother and son have endured similar battles with their diagnoses.
Her son, Sanjal Shastri, is also a young scholar currently studying for his Masters at the London School of Economics.
She was televised during these visits, explaining to the people that she had not brought all these government servants on a false pretext but rather to share her dad’s dreams and future plans to the rural folk.
President Sirisena’s popularity took a nosedive as recent as last month, when he took his son in the United States of America and was made to sit with all state dignitaries during sessions.
