A local ayurvedic physician at work preparing his medications
This ayurvedic doctor is preparing his medications. His father was a settlor in the area from Waga a village near Padukka close to my Godagama farm. His father was given the original 5 acre plot of land in the 1930's by DS Senanayake as part of the Minneriya colonisation scheme, and it is this property that I am now farming on in Raja Ela, Hingurakgoda. None of his family are farmers now.
My friend Mr Gaminidasa is an ayurvedic physician specializing in broken bones. Here he is preparing Ran Thambili oil for one of his medications.
