My dear Indira !
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU TODAY0 26TH JUNE . !

I hope you have a great day today, and many more Happy Birthday Days in the
years ahead .

It has been such a wonderful thing in my life , here in Canada, knowing
you, Ana, the girls, and your mom since you first came here, in the 80’s .
I do recall very clearly- Ana visiting me and Rajes at the Toronto Hospital
back in ’85 or so, – with his dad or uncle, and  I think, as you were still
in UK at that time.
I think, your mom and Ana and the girls came first and you arrived later .
Then, you and Ana took off to Newfoundland-  for work- as there was such a
demand over there for  an Ophthalmogist and a Dermatologist , and you both
stayed on there, very faithfully, for the next 30 yrs !

Rajes and my self, had such fun with your mom and daughters , in Toronto
and at my cottage on summer weekends .

I recall a day, when Selvarani was in Toronto, and some of the A gp guys,
and you were also in Toronto- as you and Ana were celebrating the birth of
your first grandchild, ( october- 2001,  I think it was )  and it was fun
seeing the three generations together, with Selva and the  A gp folks ,
Rajes and my self !

Then- the 4000 km  drive on the Trans Canada,  till it ended at Signal
Hill, that  me and my husband  did to Newfoundland  and back in 2004- what a
road trip it was , to see all of you  and Ana, and your mom who was not
quite well at that time .
It was great getting together in  2014,  Beruwala, and again in Newfoundland
on my way to Arctic Quebec/ Newfoundland- Labrador in 2015 .

By the way- I left out the fun we had at your old home in Rosmead Place
back then, as it would fill up another page !

We sure knew how to have fun !!

So my dear, Have a Very Happy Birthday to day, with family and who ever
that is around !

Your old pal- Deepthie 

 

 

A cheery wish on your birthday
And wishes for everything bright
May you be blessed with peace joy and happiness
Morning noon and night.
Praxy and Ranjit

  4. Happy Birthday! Dear Indira,
    From the land of ‘Hope and Glory’
    on your special day
    send special Greetings
    As you’re a very special lady

    Your erudite, calm presence, galvanised
    our signature group and the batch
    Extraordinary brilliance propelled,
    slackers like myself to study hard,
    Otherwise I still be doing
    Second MB, Sigs and revision tests.

    I cannot forget overnight
    surgical casualty sessions,
    as second year medical students
    The high point for me of course
    being homemade tasty snacks
    you and Selvarani fed us up with

    Wish you Good Health,
    Peace, happiness, contentment
    and a very long life
    with your kids, grand children
    and my former roommate Ana

    • Dear Ariya, Thanks for the Greetings. But, you must be talking about some other girl who was erudite and calm! Not me! But I must say those night casualty sessions were very enjoyable.
      All the best to you and Thavam,
      Indira

    • Dear Indragee, Thank you for your good wishes. I can remember coming to see you at your station near Nawalapitiya with Dharmasena and Nissanka (a Peradeniya graduate), It was across the Ginigathena pass if I remember right, and quite dark when we got back. But we were young and fearless and never gave it a thought. Good old days!

  5. You are quite right Ariya, when you mention tasty snacks- Rajes and my self had our fill of them, when Indira’s mom was living in Toronto, and also, Ana would bring snacks for us made by Noeline Aunty , to the evening class at U of Toronto- when we used to attend ‘revision classes ‘ for the LMCC exam, during that long hot summer of 1986 !!
    Those were the days !!
    Happy Birthday to you Indira today – 29th June , – -as I see I have made a mistake in the date as 26th — oh well- a senior moment I presume !
