Seeking to contact: Mrs Hemani Abayesekera

Seeking to contact Dr Dayal Abayesekera’s young widowHemani, 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. 





Kindly email either eLanka ( ) or Victor Melder ( ) if anyone has any information.
