better and his success was evident. He met Paththini Arachchige Ishwara Dayawathi and got married to her and
they have six children together. Along with the marriage MR. Ariyadsa's businesses started to grow.
Meanwhile, Mr. Ariyadasa shifted to taxi business. He started working as a taxi driver in his own taxi. As stated earlier, this village man never got settled with what he got; always he wanted to do better. He was so ambitious and few years down the line he had seven taxies for hire. Taxi business generated a good income and with that he entered into construction industry where he had experience as a labor.
