Dear Sri Lankan history scholars,
I advise a team of university students from all around Asia who are authoring stories that focus on various cultures of Asia. The stories are derived from stage plays put on during our multicultural week celebrations on campus here at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University. I am wondering if you have any knowledge of mythical creatures of Sri Lanka that might play a transcendental role there. For example, although it makes appearances in a variety of cultures, there is the Manohara, a heroine half-bird, half-woman. Also, I wonder if there are any myths about the power of sapphires, in general, or specific ones, in Sri Lankan culture. I am sure you are way too busy to think about this, but if you happen to have something pop to mind and feel like sharing, I would appreciate your input! Which of these mythical creatures or elements might help people outside of Sri Lanka to come to a deeper appreciation of the uniqueness of the culture there?

Because of these circumstances, the tourism industry confronted several challenges and issues. So, the research study aimed to identify the challenges and issues with the selected case study which take place in Sri Lanka by performing the interview questions which could support the investigation. And also the research study aimed to investigate the importance of the integration of IT with business processes that contribute to the better and effective enhancement of the business. And the support of an integrated IT system to tackle the challenges and the issues within the organization to gain sustainable competitive advantages specifically in the tourism industry.

AA genome species of the genus Oryza, widely distributed in moonsoon Asia's tropics and subtropics, and the progenitor of Asian cultivated rice. Many parts of the world have sympatric distributions of common wild rice populations of O. rufipogon (perennial) and O. nivara (annual); however, Sri Lanka has allopatric distribution throughout the island, providing a unique working environment for studying speciation and adaptation. As a result, a reciprocal common garden experiment was carried out in both the dry and wet zones of Sri Lanka. Each site had three replicated plots with 30 individuals each. Observations will be made for a year, with the first six months following transplanting being irrigated and the rest of the time being left in its natural condition to investigate species fitness in both native and introduced environments.
The discussion is open to finalize the parameters for evaluating the species' fitness in their native and introduced environments.
1. No. of plants survive until flowering
2. No. of plants survive flowering to seed setting
3. No. of plants survive transplanting to tillering
4. No. of fill grains
5. No. of infill grains
Please describe the possible evaluating protocol for determining fitness in a reciprocal experiment.

These days Disaster Impact Assessment (DIA) for any development project (infrastructure of industry) becoming a legal requirement for obtaining necessary approval from Government. In Bangladesh there are several cases where the government has recommended the proponent for carrying out DIA at the time of feasibility study and ESIA study. Same is true for Sri Lanka (example https://www.preventionweb.net/files/globalplatform/519b8d83c190fSri_Lanka_Presentation_for_JICA_side_event-Final.pdf )
Generally the DIA should cover impact of possible natural disaster on the proposed project and what are the safety measure or counter measures adopted by the project proponent. It is carried out along with ESIA. Therefore, I feel there should be a general guideline of DIA similar to IFC Sustainability Framework or World Bank's Environment Health and Safety Guideline.
