How to buy a land in Sri Lanka ( as a citizen )?

In Sri Lanka, there is an ancient folk tale call four laughs. One of those laughs is, how the land laugh at people who fight for the land. There's a short story call "How much land does a man require" by Leo Tolstoy. It beautifully elaborates about a man , in his lust for land, forfeits everything. Love for the lands, men have is such, unstoppable, unavoidable and never get over. But every family need a land.

Buying a land in Sri Lanka is something you should do with extreme carefulness. Otherwise, if you get in to courts for a land case, case with drag your life time as well as your child's life time and make the family bankrupt.

Basic land laws in Sri Lanka is based on Roman Dutch Law.

How to help people in Sri Lanka - 2

Many Sri Lankans always like to help, those who are in need. But its always not easy to find information about who actually need help. There are many fraudsters. Being an auditor who audited number of such NGOs in Sri Lanka, needless to say I always have a very suspicious eye on where I recommend my friends to donate. Here's a quick note on a very good organization.

We came across 
this organization who silently helps thousands of poor patients reside in national hospital of Colombo Sri Lanka. 
What is this about?
This is a charity foundation which touched my heart. Name of this charity is Hospital Services Board, situated inside national hospital of Colombo. Approved charity by government of Sri lanka.

Activities to do in kindergartens / pre schools?

Montessori pre schools  in Sri Lanka

What's happening currently with pre schools in Sri Lanka?

Recently some of our friends had a discussion regarding Montessori activities in Sri Lanka. All of them are mothers of toddlers and we had very insightful thoughts sharing on the activities of different preschools. Then we realise that most of the activities taken place in the name of Montessori system is very different from the approach initiated by Maria Montessori. Some of those are really too much of theoretical education for a small child of 3-4 years and it makes them really pressurize and robotic.

Later I had another hilarious discussion with one of my friends, who attached to one of the preschool in Colombo. This was part of our conversation.
