    Disregarding Sri Lankan culture, the aid groups rushed in with their PTSD diagnostic manuals that don’t match with how Sri Lankans experience trauma. Few groups even bothered to actually register with the government or ask what kind of help the country needed. The aid groups spiraled into chaos where “rivalries broke out between counseling groups over which populations would receive which services” (Watters, 2010, p. 78). Making things even worse, what Watters termed “parachute researchers”…

    will be one of my favourite things to read and analyse. Therefore last night, I decided to go watch the ongoing theatre adaptation of his new book, Anil’s Ghost. For those who still haven’t read it, this authentic and touching novel follows the thoughts of many Sri Lankan Tamils with different background during the dreadful civil war.
