    In Sri Lanka there is no documentation of most of the transactions. There are people who do gem business with cash. They buy a gem in the morning for Rs. 100000 and sell it in the evening for Rs. 500000. No one knows how much they earn.

    But there are popular businessman in the country who are believed to be the richest people. (But I do not believe, I think it is politicians and some businessmen who are the richest. These businessmen are the people who are engaged in non documented business. Eg. Drug trafficking, Gem Business).

    But if we consider the big business ownership following are few fab businessmen in Sri Lanka.
    1. Harry Jayawardana – owns several companies. main income from Sri Lanka insurance and Sri Lanka distilleries. He is a share holder of many leading businesses in Sri Lanka.
    2. Dammika Perera – Owns Casinos and share holder of many other businesses (Eg. LB Finance, Hayleys)
    3. Dr. Nihal Jinasena – Jinasena and Company owner. Share holder of many big organizations.
    4. Hemaka Amarasuriya

    As long as we do not have a good monitoring system and banking system in the country , we will not know who is the actual richest person is.

    I agree with Samson.
    I think business tycoon Harry Jayawardana can be accepted as the richest person in Sri Lanka considering the share holdings.

Hiya Thanks for taking the time to write this



Warning. DHI hair transplants are not success. I have had it and only few hair grew. Cost Rs 350,000. Monet wasted. Some few hair grew but after some time all the hair fell out. When I called to complain they hang up and avoid. Even Suraj who done there has now suffered more hair fall. Check his photos on th internet. Dont waste money. Better be bald.



Dr Upendra De Silva at the skin clinic in Bambalapitiya now claims to do hair transplants. This is not successful for sure. Just look even he wears a wig. Why does Upendra wear a wig if he can do good hair transplants. lol. He does not trust his clinics work. Next time if you go his clinic check his wig on head. It is a good wig. He is bald as a cricket ball otherwise. lol.

In my view the best hair transplants in Sri Lanka is in Parakum mawatha, Batharamulla. A few of my friends did it there and good results too. Cost is affordable and team do good reliable work. Got my baldness treated for Rs 50,000 and my hair looks nice now.

Everyone knows people in Sri Lanka are good at throwing mud but poor at praising good work. SO if you want to grow hair visit all the clinics and find the one that best suits you. Good luck.
