Tea Business in Sri Lanka is highly profitable. The weather,climate,temperature and soil etc are perfect to deliver a high quality premium, refreshingly delicious cup of tea. Thus Ceylon tea has become a trademark symbol in the international tea industry.
Tea plantation worker community in Sri Lanka is a marginalized group of people who's labour is exploited. They find it difficult to attain the basic human needs like shelter,sanitary facilities and education. The low wages barely enables them to make ends meet. From the research work we as students did at Unversity of Peradeniya, I learned that plantation workers are even sexually exploited.
Tea Industry in Sri Lanka lead by the tea board is looking for ways to revitalize, renovate or re-strategize Ceylon tea. This might sound far fetched or unrealistic or even supernatural to some but I thoroughly believe that worker-happiness plays a major role in producing a better product.

You judged already! Didn't you? If you thought that this blog post is a negative, complaining rant about the cussed behaviour of Sri Lankan bus conductors, you mind find me irritating (or wise) at the end of this post.
Sri Lankan bus conductors are often criticized for treating passengers as goods and not returning change, among many other 'bad' traits. Is it always true? Are we being judgy? Maybe we should put ourselves in the slippers of a bus conductor to step into the world of bus conducting.
For me, being a bus conductor in the over-utilized transport sector is worse than a nightmare. Imagine spending most of the day in often-moving-slow-due-to-traffic? Being a tropical country, we get more than enough sun which peaks at the peak hours which is also the busiest hours for the bus conductors.
Let's look at the job description of a bus conductor: Loading passengers to the bus by calling out the destinationsConducting the passengers through the bus (as people often st…
Recently I changed the wifi channel from the router to channel "12" because I wanted to be on a different channel used by my neighbor. My phone detected the wifi network on the new channel but Windows 10 did not. Turns out, we need to change the adapter settings to allow wifi receiver to detect wifi networks on a different channel.
This may not apply to all Windows 10 users but It did affect me and I found a solution.
Here is how I did it:
Press Win+E and enter Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections in the address bar.Right-click the wifi adapter and click Properties.Click the Advanced tab.Select Preferred Band under Property.Select the required band.Click OK.
The adapter will reset and you will see your dear-old wifi network.
Note: Even if you have configured your router not to broadcast SSID, Windows should detect it as a network.
