Seeking to contact Dr Dayal Abayesekera’s young widow, Hemani, from 1994-5 time ? I know she completed her studies (MA or PhD? in Qld) and returned home. Her dad used to be a well-known writer of hist articles to the papers (may be books and mags too) on history, archeol… etc called C M Austin de Silva.
I used to see his writings in the Sinhala Sunday papers which for some years my parents used to send me to Melb so I could cull material for my Sinhala broadcast under Vernon
Search as I might via the Net, and from people etc, I can’t see her name anywhere. Hearsay had it that she was teaching at Peradeniya Uni. I have mentioned her to some Peradeni Dons – all to no avail.
