Diya Rakusa, lit. "water demon" (translation from Sinhala). A nickname earned - the hard way - in water polo.
Back in Sri Lanka with an MBA and undiminished idealism. Should be an interesting ride.

Pulling the ladder up after them
State-educated (free ride all the way) doctors laying siege to the University Grants Commission demanding that the new private medical school project be denied (the buildings are already up opposite MillenniumIT in Malabe).
Expand opportunity to a wider base, overcoming the funnel into limited State universities that distorts the education system - if not the entire economy? What horror! What would become of the Chosen Few, such Brahmins as these, insulting their white coats as they hang on fences?
