Jeeves Kadirgamar — Character Summary

Harin’s mother Jeeves Kadirgamar is neighbour to and family friends of the Goonewardenes. She takes pride in and idolises her grand uncle, the late assassinated and highly celebrated Sri Lankan minister Lakshman Kadirgamar. She constantly chides Harin and his brother Sanjeev to be more like their famous great grand uncle Lakshman to their annoyance. A proud Tamil Jeeves supports Eelam and on occasion refers to the Tamil Tigers, who regrouped in the late 2010s, as “our boys”. This disturbs Ranil, Ravi’s father, who sees it as complicity for terrorism.
