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.

A9 Highway Fish Stall, Elephantpass

42 years old fishmonger Mathan Thevakumar in Elephantpass on the Jaffna-Kandy A9 highway says that, no business after tsunami, since Sinhala people are not travelling on the highway. And he says Tamils do not eat much dry fish as the Sinhala people do, so there is not much business on the highway. He says that he used to earn Sri lankan Rupees 40,000 per day earlier. Now he hardly earns a Sri Lankan Rupees 10 a day! [more pictures]
