Two Articles on Dr. Vinya Ariyaratne of Sarvodaya
I first went to Sri Lanka in 1993, and my most recent trip (so far) was in 2007. During those many years, I have worked closely with Dr. Vinya Ariyaratne, son of Sarvodaya founder Dr. A. T. Ariyaratne. Dr. Vinya is an intelligent, devoted, kind, and compassionate man, and one of the most dedicated workers for peace in Sri Lanka.
Two recent articles about him appeared in the U.S. press. Both written by Katherine Marchall, the first is an interview that appeared on Georgetown University’s Berkeley Center blog. The second is an article that appeared on Huffington Post, called “Portrait of a Peacebuilder.”
Congratulations to Dr. Vinya for recognition that he is surely due!
