Valipanna Vithanage Sugathapala was already a popular man among people who pass Maggona area on the Galle Road. Even though not known by his name we are sure the passerby must have noted this enthusiastic security officer in front of New Monis Resturant in Maggona.
Mr. Sugathapala has become popular in the cyber space now thank to the film maker Mike Worsman. A Million Smiles is a project by Mike and he will go around the world looking for people with genuine smile. His journey will be featured on his web site A Million Miles and his end plan is to make a feature film and a book.
Mr. Sugathapala has been correctly named as The Happiest Man Alive and it has gained not only popularity in the cyber space but also the praise by people all around the world.
I have personally seen him as New Monis is one of my favorite place for a snack when I travel to Down South. I was also luck to see him few days back working with the same enthusiasm.
