Am very happy to see this post talking about an old book. (Old books on Ceylon was a hobby of mine)

"Mehe Varen" is an English translation of the book "Inge Va" which was first written by A(lastair) M(ackenzie) Ferguson.

Original edition ( 1st ed) of Inge Va is very hard to find now ( it is perishing). Mehe Varen by was translated into sinhalese by S De Saram and published by AMJ Ferguson company. I believe it later printed by ANCL ( Lake house) in 1940s.

Right now if one wants a cheap copy, the Indian publishing company AES sells reprints in Sri Lanka ( should be available at any major book shop) . Sarasavi should have it for sure.

Think the price should be around only Rs250 .It is small book.
