Engaging with history because she doesn’t want to forget

Published in 2006, ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ helped make Chimamanda Nagozi Adichie an author who could boast an international following. Yet the novel told a very personal tale, something the author has described as her tribute to love. She describes growing up in the “shadow of Biafra,” and has said she wrote the novel in part because the war claimed the lives of both her grandfathers.
Vish’s sweet wish

When Vishwadhika Perera first began baking cakes, cupcakes and other intricately designed treats, her motivation was not to achieve a long held ambition, but rather to stave off the frequent bouts of boredom being away from her sailor husband induced. More than a year later and Vish, as she is more commonly known, has seen her humble enterprise’s clientele swell up to legions of greatly appreciative customers, constantly queuing to phone in with their varying ideas and demands.
