    No, no, that's the latest dancing style of Kulasiri. Hit while dancing, this is called 'Kulasiri-Samba'.

    This sounds a bit odd. It took him 10yrs to realize that she "failed to perform properly" ? If this is true then he is not fit to teach anything. Let's not come to conclusions before the inquiry is over. It's only one side of the story.
