    Congratulations. ..But that does not mean that all research he does with questionable data and outcomes are correct.

    As far as I know he did not publish any thing unacceptable. If it is questionable to someone better polish his/her own knowledge rather than question others.

    All this is very good but has anyone found out the cause or causes of the chronic kidney diseases affecting our farmers? We need solutions and hope his research (assuming it was done properly) inspires others to find solutions to the problem

    Congratulations Professor. Though our gobels do not understand what he says regarding recent kidney disease international intellectuals value his researches.

    I do not understand how his feat benefited me or other patients but at least it was good for him I suppose. So congratulations!

    This is a proud moment for Sri Lanka and the distinction of this academic's work. Well done. But did the article state he is the first author of the 366th chapter of this edition of the book? 366th? Really? Must be some book!
