    Well done Tharuka. Please ignore the previous dumb comment - which is completely irrelevant.

    If people (especially) young women have nutritious food in Sri Lanka most will look better. Unfortunately mal and under nutrition is very high and no one cares. This is while people spend billions to feed already fat parliamentarians
