Wickramasinghe showed a great interest in various areas of the natural and social sciences and he had contributed to the development of the Sri Lankan literature. He wrote literature for children, novels, short stories and few drama books. Also, he showed interest in areas such as history, religion, philosophy, travel and even biology.
