Best Wishes to Stella Mahajoudeen!



Happy Birthday to you  my dear friend Stella, today, 2nd Aug.
Where ever you may be  today, have a Happy Day today, with many more Happy
Days like this, coming your way in the future .
After age 70-  just to live, is like a Happy Birthday Every Day !!

I do remember sooo well, this day, as you see on the photo on the beach,
when I picked you up from the JMO Office on Norris Canal Rd , when you were
working as JMO Colombo back in April 1992.
Then we went to your home in Mutuwal, and picked up your son and daughter
and headed out to the beach, and I took this lovely photo of you, by the
beach  hut .
You are sooo lovely in this photo- with that eternal Happy Face Smile !!
I think, if I remember right, you left SL soon after that to live in UK –
where you still live .

Those were good days Stella, back in the Girls Hostel- that the guys very
‘lovingly’ referred to as Appa Kade !!!!
We were very jolly bunch of kellas on the 3rd floor – with you and Kamala
as room mates  next to my room, and  there was Saradamani , Dhamsa,   and
Rajes and Maharojani as room mates.

Then,  of course, we met many times, when I was doing my Internship at
Ragama, and your dad was the Station Master , and you would visit your
family in Ragama .

Something I wont forget- you and Saradamani delivered my first baby on Oct
18- 1970,   at Castle Street . and she is  now living in Vancouver, with
three kids, aged 11, 13 and 16  !! .
OMG- where has the time gone …

I do hope you follow this lovely blog- web- created by Sam, and ‘powered’
by Ariya  and see all the news  and views .

Again I am wishing you my dear Stella, a Very Happy Birthday, Good Health
and Happiness in the years ahead with your children and grand children .

Your good old pal- Deepthie .


Dear Stella,
