it looks like tooth caries  and it needs to come out. I guess, if it is not painful then you can go to srilanka and then come back and have it looked into.

Tooth Caries? What does that mean? Does the whole tooth need to come out or can it just be a root canal?
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 19 days ago.

from the picture it looks like only the tooth needs comming out.

tooth caries means decayed tooth
