Sri Lanka is an island in the Indian Ocean also called Ceylon and many other names. It is about 28 kilometres (18 mi.) off the south-eastern coast of India with a population of about 20 million. The British brought them to Sri Lanka in the 19th century as tea and rubber plantation workers, and they remain concentrated in the "tea country" of south-central Sri Lanka.
Density is highest in the south west where Colombo, the country's main port and industrial center, is located. Sri Lanka is ethnically, linguistically, and religiously diverse. The Indian Tamils of Sri Lanka were considered to be "stateless" and over 300 000 Indian Tamils were deported back to India, due to the agreement between Sri Lanka and India in 1964.
