    That man seems to have a rare talent, unfortunately used for wrong purpose. Why the govt. cant recruite him to make weapons for Sri Lanka. That will surely save lots of money.

    Govt should encourage them to be an export orientated manufacturer. So many groups who need cost effective supplies.
