His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.” John 2: 2-3 (NIV)
The highlands of Lanka have clear evidence of an ancient protohistorical social order. There is evidence of agriculture at Horton Plains dating back to 17,000 years BP (Before Present). Further down the slopes, clay canoe burial sites hold the cremated remains of people. These have been excavated and carbon dated back to over 1500 BC by Prof. Raj Somadeva of the Post Graduate Institute of Archaeology (PGIAr).
