University education takes so long now in SriLanka that most children graduate at the same time as their parents.

It has been reported that a few graduates have died of old age before they graduated. (They got posthumous awards!)

There is also the difficulty of getting a place in a University that most parents take them along to the University as soon as they are born...to ensure a place!

SriLankans however take it on the bump in a typically SriLankan fatalistic manner: "Monawa Karannada?"
