The book titled “Selected Essays on President Mahinda Rajapaksa” by Dr Levins .T C Rajaratnam has been published by Sarvodaya Viswa Lekha (ISBN 978-955-51312-2-3). The Author has in his acknowledgement stated that the book is a compilation of a collection of articles published in the newspapers and the electronic media. The book is a living testimony of President Rajapaksa’s credentials and has successfully wiped off all the negativism and created a positive and affirmative impression of President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The entirety of the book  justifies the actions and effective leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s  and the military victory at war. He has distinguished the internal war from international war.

 It is the best book I have read of the President Rajapaksa and its manifestation of  intelligent, intricate and strategic writings of a political analyst . Dr Levins Rajaratnam has commended the Rajapaksa regime and its leadership. This is the first book in Sri Lanka which narrates the necessity of Patriotism  with political activism.

 The Author  states that President Mahinda Rajapaksa has cherished the ideals of a free and democratic society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal he states, that President Rajapaksa has long cherished and now fulfilled as the Father of the Sri Lanka Nation.

 The book contains 10 Chapters. Chapter 1 is on Patriotism-the need of the hour, Chapter 2 is on Patriotism vs.Terrorism:Conflict of interests and the deterioration of a nation, Chapter 3 is on President Mahinda Rajapaksa-President for two full terms until 2017., Chapter 4 is on President Mahinda Rajapaksa:The Greatest Leader that Sri Lanka has ever producred, Chapter 5 is on the Tower of Strength to the Masses.,Chapter 6  The Choice of the People, Chapter 7 Election Victory Revisited, Chapter 8 The Defender of the Nation, Chapter 9 Namal Rajapaksa-the emerging Leader of the Youth, Chapter 10 President Rajapaksa- the Saviour of the Nation.

 The book should be made available to the diplomatic community in Sri Lanka and be promoted by Sri Lankan Missions overseas to rebut the presumption that is presently been propagated by vested interests.

 The books are available at the bookshops at Hilton, the Cinnamon Grand Hotel and at leading bookshops.
