Some Non-Serious Stuff About Me


I'm Damith. I'm a Sri Lankan.



My Name

'Damith' is pronounced as in 'the myth' (not exactly, but close enough!).

My surname is 'Rajapakse', which means 'Loyal to the king' in my mother tongue (Sinhalese). Sri Lanka is no longer ruled by kings. But we do have a president, and interestingly, his surname is "Rajapakse" too! No, we are not related.

Where I'm From

I hail from the beautiful city of Kandy, Sri Lanka. I spent most of my youth in Colombo (capital of Sri Lanka). I've been staying in Singapore since 2002, first, studying for my PhD at NUS, and now, working there as a lecturer.
