මං හැදුවෙ හිතුවක්කාර බිස්නස් එකක්
අවුරුදු 40 ක් පුරා ආ ගමනේ වෙහෙසකර දිගු දවස් කොතෙකුත් විය. දිවා රෑ නැතිව වැඩ කළ... පයින් ඇවිද ගිය... බස්වල තෙරපී ගමන් කළ... කටුක අතීතයෙන් ඔහු බොහෝ දේ උගත්තේ ය. අද ධනවත් ව්‍යාපාරික ලැයිස්තුවේ සිටියද මහ පොළොවේ පය ගසා ජීවත්වන මිනිසෙකු වන්නට ඔහුට හැකිව තිබෙන්නේ එහෙයිනි.
