  1. Lanka

    Lanka is the name given in Hindu mythology to the island fortress capital of the legendary king Ravana in the great Hindu epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. The fortress was situated on a plateau between three mountain peaks known as the Trikuta Mountains. The ancient City of Lankapura is thought to have been burnt down by Lord Hanuman. After the King Ravana was killed by Lord Rama with the help of the former's brother Vibhishana, Vibhishana was crowned King of Lankapura by Lord Rama after which he ruled the kingdom. The mythological Lankapuri is identified today as Sri Lanka. His descendants ruled the kingdom even during the period of the Pandavas. According to the epic, the Mahabharata, the Pandava Sahadeva had visited this kingdom during his southern military campaign for the Rajasuya sacrifice of Pandava king Yudhisthira.

  5. Damitha Pathmalal:

    As long as the government remains in the business of picking winners and losers, the engine of creative destruction that is necessary for true innovation in this or any other sector is unlikely to take root in Sri Lanka,” Pathmalal cautioned. “History doesn’t repeat itself but it rhymes. The local economic policy-making bodies bear a striking resemblance to Venice’s Great Council, which was comprised of the business leaders of the time and informed government policy. It ostensibly fostered economic growth but by its design was a protectionist old boys club. In 1330 Venice was the size of Paris and three times larger London. It is now a city that is literally under water and a museum for tourists.”
