“With a Fistful of Rice”, unravels the fascinating saga of the founding of Mahamaya Girls’ School in Kandy at a time when Buddhist education had suffered a severe setback owing to the relentless onslaughts of Christian missionary enterprise. This well-researched and well-documented study is not only an investigation into the beginnings of Buddhist women’s education, but also a history of woman-power. It is written in a fluent, readable style, gripping the reader with personal anecdotes intermingled with a great deal of factual information.” – Dr. Lorna Devaraja, Director, Bandaranaike Diplomatic Training Institute, Colombo.
