For many years, a small village in south Sri Lanka was cursed. It’s women were unable to give birth.
After a marathon month long exorcism, the town’s demons along with their evil spells were sent back to hell. And a miracle baby was soon born named THARANGA.
On his 8th birthday, villagers rioted, set fire to buildings and overthrew it’s government. They demanded Tharanga be made king. This was a future and job he did not want. Tharanga fled the country and now lives in Toronto.
OK, seriously who is this guy?
