He describes Panther as a “high school story” set in Sri Lanka, but with “international” themes.

Chhimi works at Elizabeth Moir international school, in Colombo and draws his literary inspiration mostly from Sri Lankan authors – “because they are so talented and original.”

Chhimi’s new book is entitled Loyal Stalkers (2017) is a collection of 15 interconnected stories: A seventeen-year-old girl gives birth to a hatechild. At a city gym, an introverted fitness instructor obsesses over his unattainable client. Inside an untended guest-house room, an adolescent cricket champ is caught unawares by his coach’s violent fury. By a rain-drenched gravesite, a special-needs teacher confides in a stranger.
