Every morning, from where I live in Kandy, I take a brisk walk for my health. That is what I always tell myself! Funnily, I always seem to end up at the railway level crossing at Getambe and this is where I first met an interesting character by the name of Jayantha, or Jayantha Aiya as he is known to all and sundry.
