Best Wishes to N. Rajabalendran !


Happy Birthday to you my dear good friend- Rajabalendran !
 I wish you all that is best in the coming days and enjoy this day with
Ranjini and family .

It was soooo good to meet with you  and Ranjini during your visit to
America last summer .
Rajes, Rabi and my self, we really enjoyed meeting up with  both of you .

Listening to your Tales from Pimbura and Alice Springs ‘ was  like
listening to a Book Reading , that keeps the listener absolutle spell bound
You should seriously consider writing all this down- as I don’t know of any
one who stuck it out at Alice Springs in the  heart of the Australian
desert, like the way you did, and the Govt of Aust  did infact, duly reward
you for your wonderful service , Above and Beyond the Calll of Duty to the
People of The Desert, both Aboriginal and Non Aboriginal .
I am glad  that you are now retired and enjoying life after 35 yrs in the
Desert , and  most of the time ,  as the Only doctor available .

What a wonderful way to serve Humanity — …. it does not matter where –
as people are people  and we are  all the same creatures of The Creator .

I visited Aust twice -‘ 91 and ‘ 98- both times  in Dec- the Aussie summer,
that is not a good time to visit Alice Springs .
So, I am glad, that you made the trip here to Canada, to see me and Rajes-
and you gave us One Years notice about it !

I remember so very well, how you and Rahula and sometimes  Sivakumaran,
used to borrow my Grey’s Anatomy for weekends, and in return, the three of
you would explain some  Phys/Biochem riddles for me !
Those were real good days and I am glad we have such happy memories of our
times as young medicos- sometimes serious, but mosty not so serious  ! ( at
least I was !!- never proclaim to be a goody goody ! )
Then, Rahul and I were doing Internship at Ragama and then Real Life
started as Real Doctors !

Well my dear, I hope you see this and Re- Visit your trip out to America,
and hope we meet again- perhaps in Beruwala, October 2018– good month to
meet for good reasons !!
Bye-  Wishing All that is Good and Happy for the days ahead .

your good pal- Deepthie .


Happy birthday Rajabalendran🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

On this day you  get older by another year
But do not worry and do not live in fear.
For wrinkles come and wrinkles go
But friendships made will never go.
So Ranjit and I wish you many happy returns of the day’
And God’s choicest blessings to adorn your way .

Ranjit and Praxy

    Many happy returns of the day.

    Even though you couldn’t attend the last RU owing to your brief illness, I made sure that you receive a copy of the souvenir by express post. I am glad that you acknowledged the fact that the addresses of our batch mates in the souvenir is very useful. Now that your hiccup of receiving the 64 news letter is sorted out, you are up to date with all the latest. I am sure that you are looking forward for the next RU.

    Many happy returns and best wishes for a contented life in the years to come. Hope you will make it to the next RU.
