I came across this article by chance. Pitchai Packir saibo of Badulla was my great grandfather. His son Latheef Packir saibo was my grandfather who took over the Buisiness in the early 1900's. The Business was not doing too well and my grandfather worked very hard to bring up the business and continues with the stores in the Town of Badulla on Main Street. HE also supplied the tea estates, had hard ware stores transport Buisnes with a fleet of trucks, and petrol stations. He had a department store in Colombo called the Town shop which was located in Main Street.
The Tea estate was owned by my Grandfathers brother Mr Jamal packirSaibo. The Business was not taken care of after the Demise of my grandfather and died a natural death unfortunately.
