Dheerananda Gunaherath (Marxist Political Critic), Wickrama Wickramaditya Wickramaratne (Liberalist Political Critic), Segiriye Keerale (Marxist Literary Critic), Walter Madugalle (Nationalist Political Critic) et al who have been kind enough to provide us their previous writings to be published on The Public Sphere. We hope that they will continue to provide us their articles in the future as well.
