I was born in 1961 in Kiriella, in the Ratnapura District to a middle class family. My father was a farmer while my mother is a house wife. I was fortunate to have been brought up in a Buddhist background. The values inculcated in me by my parents were the stepping stones of my success story and today, I have accomplished much in my life. I am also grateful to my wife and two sons for assisting me in carrying out my duties as the Principal of a leading school in Sri Lanka.
