From Tank to Taxi #2

Taxi Driver #3 by Son of the Morning Light on

A former tank driver in the Sri Lanka Army’s Armoured Corps, Janaka Ravindra from Anuradhapura, is forced to live in Colombo so that his oldest daughter, who has Downs Syndrome, can go to a special needs school run by the Army. To fund the high expenses of life in a big city, Janaka used twenty years of Army service gratuity to buy a small car which he now drives on behalf of Über and Pickme. Shot at the Elvitigala Flats, where he lives with his wife and two daughters, for The Connected Sri Lankan, a collaborative study by J Walter Thompson and TNS Kantar on how Sri Lankans engage with the internet. Colombo, September 2017.
