The road map to move forward: Finding the Sri Lankan equation

Somewhere on a bridge in the Chilaw area, there are a couple of fishermen selling their catch of wewa maalu (tank fish). At around four or five in the evening, passersby can see them at the roadside, pulling out small black fish from a net. The fish are so alive that some even escape from the basket to do a last ditch leap along the side of the road. The fishermen meanwhile conduct brisk business, as passing motorists stop to buy their fresh catch.
