    [palace guard became a king.]

    Three wheel drivers became Mayors of principle cities like Colombo and Moratuwa. They could end up becoming Presidents of the republic.

    Thugs become Cabinet Ministers

    Fishmongers and labourers are aspiring to become Mayors in Batti.

    So we are keeping to tradition!
