India & Sri Lanka trivia

India or Sri Lanka?

Worlds largest tea exporter?    
Answer:  Sri Lanka.   Although only a fraction of the size of India, Sri Lanka exports more tea than any other country.    India is a distant fourth, following Kenya and China.

First democratically elected female head of government?  
Answer: Sri Lanka.   Born in 1916, Sirimavo Bandaranaike was elected Prime Minister of Sri Lanka in 1960 and was actually the world's first democratically elected female head of state.  She served as Prime Minister three times, 1960-65, 1970-77, and 1994-2000.   In case you're wondering, Indira Gandhi was elected as India's first female Prime Minister in 1966.
