• 32 Immortal Soldiers

Scientific study of the biological basis of human social behavior leaves no doubt that our species Homo sapiens evolved by conflicts between tribes. Tribalism is a fundamental human trait. Human history has been the history of tribal conflicts. The Buddha taught the eternal law that “hatred is never appeased by hatred, it is appeased by love”. Mindful of this teaching, in this inspired and inspiring publication, patriot Prasad Polwatte celebrates 29 immortal soldiers who demonstrated in the highest possible degree in real life, the noblest human behavioral trait, namely altruism. Voluntary self-destructive behavior performed by one to benefit others is called altruism. Of such behavior Jesus Christ said; “grater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends”.

This is not a book. It is a magnificent heartfelt tribute by the author to people who gave their lives for us to see peace.
It is a must read for any Sri Lankan, to honour the real heroes and remember them, lest they be forgotten.
