Do not group Geological Survey and Mines Bureau with the Sand
mafia - Chairman GSMB
There is unbelievable slowness shown by a handful
of officials to implement GSMB's scientific systematisation
activities. These personnel are alleged to be tarnishing the noble
image of the Bureau which gives the impression to the public that
the GSMB is in the payroll of the sand mafia.
A great man of vision and mission

the revolutionary intellectual and religious movements - the All
Ceylon Buddhist Students Union - started by the Dutch Buddhist monk
- Bhikku Dhammapala in early forties of the 20th Century.
