Not only Sunil and Nimal the annoying grandmother, haughty sister, all the characters we loved to love and hate. Sunil from a high cast rich family and a Nimal from a low cast family, whose dad work under the rich family as a stone breaker. The rich family didn't want the poor child to be studying in the same class as their child in the school. But the two friends loved each other a lot, money couldn't stop their friendship.
These two friends, they came from different social backgrounds, and despite that, their friendship always pulled through.

Yashorawaya is the first teledrama to be produced based on a novel in Sri Lanka. This is a novel by Somaweera Senanayake and directed by Parakrama Niriella.
The innocent Suratissa, the simple Baladeva, the stubborn Ranjani and the easy going Sunimal, born into the same family, these 4 kids believed in 4 different worlds. They had different dreams, they followed different rules in life. And amidst all that lies the love of their parents, undivided, unvaried, and unconditional.
At the end of this story, which discusses the lifestyle of the middle class Sri Lankans, their desire to rise to the top, and therefore the pursuit of money, and ultimately their fall into the lowest class, they suggest that we rise to the top. What needs to be done is to get mentally fit. This is very clear to us through the character of Baladeva.
