Thulasi Muttulingam is a journalist based in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Her main passion is post-war reporting. Sri Lanka ended its 30 year civil war in 2009 with the decimation of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a guerrilla army fighting for an independent homeland for the country's ethnic minority Tamils. There are many issues that remain unresolved (or are being slowly resolved) in this post war context in Sri Lanka, and her main interest is in covering all these issues - ranging from unresolved cases of peoples' disappearances and deaths, to challenges of refugee resettlement, to challenges in ethnic conflicts and reconciliation continuing to affect the small island nation. She believes in highlighting the positive as well as negative stories in this region - as she believes highlighting only the negatives would give a skewed picture. It would also serve only to further divide the already divided communities living in Sri Lanka, which she does not want to see. She believes in the process of reconciliation in the post war context - and as a personal project, also runs the Humans of Northern Sri Lanka facebook page to help achieve this.
