Dilani Vytheswaran, Children's House Room 4 Teacher
Economist Sonali Deraniyagala lost her husband, parents and two young sons in the terrifying Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004. They had been vacationing on the southern coast of her home country Sri Lanka when the wave struck. Wave is her brutal but lyrically written account of the awful moment and the grief-crazed months after, as she learned to live with her almost unbearable losses — and allow herself to remember details of her previous life.
In this scene, Deraniyagala revists both the house of her parents in Colombo, which has been emptied and closed up since the tsunami, and Yala National Park, where she was when the wave struck.
Sonali’s parents were good friends of my parents. Hearing the news about the Tsunami and learning that Sonali had lost her whole family to the tsunami, was one of the most dreadful calls I have ever received.
I truly admire Sonali’s honesty and candid recollection of her life after the Wave.
Wave was released on March 5, 2013.
