Message from “Seelan”

“My dear Batch mates,

This is the first time in my life that I received so many Birthday Greetings!!
I am overwhelmed & at the same time embarrassed! If you look at the attached Photos very very carefully, you may notice that I am Blushing!!

My sincere thanks to all of you.

Sam(Gunasiri), Ariya & Praxy – You have done a great job starting this.

I like the way “Eagle Deepthie” sent the greetings. But please don’t waste the Chivas Regal on the Foxes. Save it for me.

The photos Ariya posted look good. I look better than the original.

I don’t like the idea of adding one year to my age, but I enjoyed the company of my four grand children. They all came home on the 21st.

Best Regards

    • Dear Sam,
      Thanks for your good work.
      Whenever I think of our anatomy days, I think of people like Samaraweera ( My body partner who did all the dissection- not me!), you & Praxy.
      In spite of my laziness during our anatomy days, can you believe that I became an anatomy demonstrator at the Auckland Med. School, as part of my radiology training. Even there, I used to think about you guys!!!
      Never ending memories!!

  1. My dear Seelan,
    I very much like your family photo
    With king and the queen in the castle
    Surrounded by beautiful grand children
    Both grand parents are in cloud nine

    Judging by the number of well wishers
    Seelan is easily the mate popular most
    You birthday coming in the month, first
    Has given a boost to our birthday project

    So many wanted to transfer good will
    The mate of the batch most affable
    That boosted the ‘kicks’ to the web site
    Yet another boon to us from our Seelan

    Kind regards,


  2. HI Seelan !

    You have been a Honda Lamaya- so, that is why there was such an outpouring of Greetings from around the world, on your Birthday .

    Even my Red Fox came out of the woods to my back yard, on Jan 21- 2016- to greet you !

    We all have to thank Sam, Ariya, and Praxy- for the work done, to keep the Class of 64 Circle intact .
    The Birthday Salutations started by Ariya- has been like a magic light that seemed to have ‘woken up ‘ the sleeping grey cells around the world !

    God only knows- in this day and age, when we see what is going on around the world -we all need a little Good Cheer from around the world to light up our Twilight Years !

    We have come a long, long way, from that memorable day, in Sept 1964- when we all walked through those doors and into ” The Block “: on Norris Canal Rd !!!

    So- again, Bohoma Isthuthie to Sam, Ariya and Praxy , starting the Birthday Salutations .

    What lovely adorable family you have- lovely wife, lovely daughters and the little ones are soo, soooo cute .
    All of you look sooo happy in the photo – who wouldn’t be, with a Seeya like you !
    It seems you have only one male heir to the throne, sitting on your lap- two daughters and 3 grand daughters .
    I love the little grand son, cheeks all puffed up, helping old Seeya to blow out the candles !!

    Iam glad you liked the Eagledeepthie Greetings – with the Red Fox waiting for the Chivas and falling asleep after a good drink, and hand fed sunflower seed snack !!

    Yes- when you decide to visit Canada, I will treat you with a Chivas. !

    May you and your lovely family have a Very Happy and Prosperous New year .

    The Old Wise Eagle and the Old Wise Owl are Watching over you– so, you be The Honda Lamaya ,that you have been, all these long years !!!

    Blessings from Eagledeepthie .

    • Hi ICM,
      Never too late! Thanks for your wishing – one needs all these wishing to survive longer.
