Prof. Nandasena Ratnapala, the down to earth sociologist has passed away yesterday, Daily News reports.
Prof. Ratnapala is better known for his research on the life of beggars, done by himself disguised as a beggar. He is also one of the pioneers in popularising sociology among masses, through his well readable articles to Sinhala newspapers.
Apart from to Sociology, Prof. Ratnapala’s contribution is seen in many other spheres in the form of books written both in Sinhala and English.
