Are There Lessons For India From The Sri Lanka Experience?
The quest to find positive stories in Sri Lanka and better understand cultural ties
If you are an Indian, you have grown up with some knowledge of Sri Lanka. Most of us know it as the kingdom of Ravana, the great king & villain of the Hindu epic ‘Ramayana’.
But after childhood, at least for me, the connection started getting a little hazy. My understanding grew that it wasn’t a place to be remembered as a villain’s kingdom.
Then what else did Sri Lanka stand for? A cricket team which defeated us in the 1996 world cup? After which I stopped following cricket? A decision I stick by till this date.
Of late, its is spoken of as a wonderful backpacker destination with its beautiful beaches and relaxed vibe.
