      Etymology. From the Sanskrit word Sinhala, meaning literally "of lions".. The Mahavamsa records the origin of the Sinhalese people and related historical events. It traces the historical origin of the Sinhalese people back to the first king of Sri Lanka, Vijaya, who is the son of Sinhabahu (Sanskrit meaning 'Sinha' (lion) + 'bahu' (hands, feet), the ruler of Sinhapura.

      Sri Lanka, which boasts a 92% rate of literacy—the highest in South Asia and among the highest in Asia—has a long storytelling tradition. What is perhaps special about literature in this country is the extent to which the oral tradition has complemented a vast body of literature spanning many genres in written form. Books based in Sri Lanka can never disappoint in their cultural depth, tales of heartbreaking divides and disasters and traditional (yet at times, stubborn) ideals. For lovers of historical fiction and cultural richness, look no further because this is a list that will keep you highly preoccupied! 1. Running In The Family – Michael Ondaatje [ ].
