This book is dedicated to the plantation Tamils of Sri Lanka whose suffering continues
endlessly. The term ‘plantation Tamils’ is used to describe ‘persons of Indian origin’
who were bought to Ceylon in the 19th century by British plantation owners to work
in the coffee and tea plantations. While the plight of Sri Lankan Tamils has received
world-wide attention the tribulations of the plantation Tamils remain unexposed.
This publication is an attempt to focus attention at least on some of the problems
of the plantation Tamils.
This book is available in print from many on-line bookstores throughout the world
