I was a leading rights activist in Sri Lanka for decades, my passion being peace with justice and freedom of expression with social responsibility. I came to Geneva on 24th May 2009 to make a intervention at UNHRC special session on Sri Lanka for post war justice. That 3 minute speech changed my life, I was not able to go back home and became a refugee, Geneva became my second home.
