Dear Rajesh,

Wish you a very happy birthday fabulous

With contentment, peace and excellent health

Get most of your news through our Deepthie,

Hope you be blessed with a long life, joyous




Happy Birthday to you my dear faithful friend  Rajes  !
A True Friend Indeed , and In Need – in good times, and not so good times
over the past  55 yrs .

We did lose touch briefly, for about 10 yrs- when we migrated around the
world, but, met again in 1982- at the exam hall in Toronto when we both had
to write some stupid exam !

Rajes-  you were always there for me, and I was always there for you, and
even did the Eulogy for your mom so many years ago .

We were Intern ( me )  and Resident  ( you in Ob/ Gyn )  back in 1985 at
the Toronto East General , and crammed together ,  for yet another stupid
exam, along with Ananda and made it through in july 1986 !

And here we are -now in our 70’s thinking of all those good times gone by,
and  boy oh boy don’t we  ever have time to think !

I just visited you a few wks ago, and when I saw the youngest in the
family- Rajan with his wife and three very grown children visting you from
Australia, – the whole ‘ hostel days’ seem to roll by,  in my mind, as I if
on a ‘video mode ‘ when your mom would come to see you, all the way from
Batti,   with all your siblings and  your mom carrying little Rajan !

How time has gone by, how time has treated us – good and not so good .
But, , the main thing is- YOU were ALWAYS there for me – for which I am
eternally grateful .

 Very Happy Birthday, Lots of Love, Blessings andn Prayers  to you ,   My
Dear Rajes-


Your Loving Friend- Deepthie


Many happy returns of the day Rajes🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
As you celebrate your birthday today
Ranjit and I wish you many happy returns of the day.
May you be blessed with everything you wish for ,
Today everyday and for evermore.


Praxy and Ranjit

    By the way- is this “Jayaratne ” the same one as Ariya’s brother who married Gertie and worked with me at Ragama in 1970- 71, and now ,living in UK ?
    if so, they bought the little baby cot my daughter used, for their little son, when we were selling up and moving out of the country in ’72.

  10. My Dear friend Deepthi,

    Let me wish you many happy returns of 13th. Happy Birthday. May your creator bless and protect you.
    You summed up our friendship so beautifully in your birthday greetings. Yes we did combined work together with Dhamsa and others in the hostel. We continued that in Canada to do those exams. I would never have made it without your help to go through basic stuff after 12 years of Ob&Gyn. You were so focused and methodical, yes you were there for me during good and hard times. Your no nonsense attitude was always helpful,in times of stress.

    When we were at East general, sharing a room, do you remember the night, ER nurses were looking for me and called you. They asked “where is the gyne resident?” You said “She is in my bed” Wasn’ that a hoot!! it is so nice to wish you another year of happiness and peace. thank you for your friendship.

    Love rajes.


  11. Hi Ariya,

    my humble apologies for this delayed note. I do appreciate your Birthday wishes. How come we were not aware of your great poetic talent when we were at medical school? I always read your writings in the blog and appreciate them tremendously. Thank you for keeping us all connected.

    kind Regards Rajes.
