housemaid and gardener, who both hail from Sri Lanka. I first visited the island national with my whole family and I was totally enthralled
by the experience and has since come back many times to discover more fascinating aspects of the country.”  Al Mansoori said the book is a “labour of love” and proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to a charity, reported Emirates Business.-
