Sri Lankans love to exaggerate the importance of who they are. Or what they do. You will meet more people declaring themselves “Dr.” or even “Professor” with no such qualifications to their name. And worse than that when it comes to what they do.
We seem to have an inordinate love for the phrase “Research & Development” or R&D as it’s commonly known. Even a guy putting a nut on a bolt will say they “are doing R&D”.
