I had just two books come in - one of my very favourite authors. Cynthia Harrod Eagles.
Set in 1898 very late Victorian beginning of the Edwardian period, the end of Queen Victoria's reign. Also the disastrous Boer war. The division socially begins and the suffragette movement comes of age.
I have finished several books this week
The Distant Hours - Kate Morton
Saturday - Ian McEwan
The Long Shadow - Cynthia Harrod Eagles
Presently reading The Question - Cynthia Harrod Eagles
Today is a holiday in Sri Lanka celebrating the festival of Maha Sivarathri. Today is a day that women pray for protection for their husbands and sons. Unmarried women pray for a husband like Shiva who is considered an ideal man. We do have a lot of holidays in Sri Lanka because it seems like you have to accommodate all. So if you do allow Christmas and Vesak it is only fair to allow Ramazan and Maha Sivarathri. Everyone enjoys the day off!
