Although Mr.Sivaraj is the owner of many businesses today, he started his life in a sour note being born in a poverty stricken family in Puliyawatta, Hatton. After completing his G.C.E. Ordinary Level Examination he stepped in to Colombo seeking a job in 1984. He could fi nd employment in a hardware shop and he wanted to go solo and bought a motor cycle and started doing buying and selling. At that time motor cycle was his business establishment. When he reminded of his past diffi culties and the hardships he faced, his eyes were filled with tears. He says the Adela Trading Company was established by him after starting his own business buying and selling bolts and nuts. Thereafter, he bought his own shop in Messenger Street in year 1993 and was able to continue his business in that shop. He says it is his belief the deity that he could rise to this level today.” God instructs me and I do as his orders”,he says. He is a spiritualist. He is very pious and his business activities are very transparent. It is his disciplinary habits that have contributed to the growth of this business institution during the 25 years.
