(August 07, 2010, Colombo - Lanka PolityMany may get angry when we start this piece saying that Sri Lanka's ill-famous fraudster Sakvithi Ranasinghe was a past student of D.S. Senanayaka College, Colombo, as reported. 

This proves that any such schools that try to maintain 'royal' standards covering almost all their recurrent expenditure with tax payers' monies can produce ruling social elite as well as thieves like this. 

Of course, there is little difference between a thief and a elite person in this country. Business giant Lalith Kothalawala, one time Sri Lankan Bill Gates collapsed into Sakvithi Ranasinghe's level in single night is the best proof for this. 

Sakvithi is a symbol of the ideal of most Sri Lankans. This symbol was shown to us in one of Sri Lanka's most famous 'mega' tele-dramas. In the last episode of Paba tele-drama, the politician-turned trishaw driver Ukku is shown as a powerful Minister that lives in a luxurious house with several comfortable cars are parked near, with an array of servants. 

Most of Sri Lanka's current heroes are the kind of Ukku. Any such hero is prone to the disgrace Sakvithi Ranasinghe if a fraction of justice done. 

Sakvithi hailed from gutter and he had no powerful father to inherit him the right to usurp public money acquired mortgaging generations of countrymen, as ten or twenty percent commissions, legally from the so-called development projects. 

Many Sri Lankans that miss this opportunity usually resort to the businesses of Sakvithi kind to find easy money.

They worship the kind of Sakvithi and become easy pray for them. Actually the most of the Sri Lankans are Sakvithis of different sizes. 

Sakvithi Ranasnghe was finally caught. He seems to have lost much of the money he swindled. Therefore the thousands of victims of Sakvithi scam will not have any money. They may be happy if Sakvithi will be killed in police fire as he tries to grab a firearm from a policeman and escape as he is taken to show a place money is hidden in the way the justice is often done in this island. 

But the Sri Lankan capitalism that promotes swindling money from public or fellow citizens and having an uncultured life of sheer consumerism will produce many more Sakvithis
