In the sinjala of most people the output of novels and short-storis was small during the latter part of his carrier in view of the fact that he had to put more effort to counter the critics who unleashed a torrent of abuse against him. Writing a historical novel is a challenging and demanding job because the author must be thoroughly conversant with the social, political and economic conditions of the period which he deals and also of the language, customs and way of life depicted in the novel.

The striking feature of his young heroes and heroines is that they have the audacity to make a complete break with tradition by arguing with their parents about matters which concern their lives.

Silva were on the literature syllabus when Sinhala literature was taught in classes from grade six onwards but their books are not much read today because of the exclusion of that subject from the school curriculum consequent upon the implementation of the educational reforms. There appeared in Kelehanda which is generally reckoned to be his most celebrated novel, for it ran into several reprints within a short period of time.

In he published his third novel of this kind, July Hatha, marked by a sensational story where Wilson Wanaraja, a businessman finds among the various items of goods he has purchased, a box containing the head of a woman severed from the body. He delineates such characters in defiance of the contemporary conventions governing the conduct of young women. Lakshamiethe first novel of this genre, revolves round number of murders of which the salient feature is that although the crimes are committed in this island the murderers evade arrest hiding away in a country called Awkan.

This fabric of the sunhala is marked by his exquisite management of the theme with a prose style of his own to carry it. Young women of marriageable age in particular, emphasise that they must have the freedom to choose their partners without undue influence from their parents.
