Happy Birthday to you my dear Olympic Star Sports Med Buddy !
I hope you have a real Happy Birthday- and don’t eat too much of cake, as
you are doing in this photo- as then, after that, you will not be able to
keep pace with the Baila Kumari- who is trying hard to put one foot in front
of the other !!
I wish you ALL the Very Best today, and in the days ahead, as now as
Septugenerians ( as Ariya calls us ) every sunrise is the Best Day –
Birthday or no Birthday !
It was just great meeting up with you at both RU- ’92 in Bentota, and 2014
I cannot recall, if you came for the RU in UK in ’89 .
In the old photo from ’92- all of you guys look so good, and still look
good, even after all these years of Life and Times !
I do take your good advice and go for walks a few times a week, and if not,
work around the garden to keep one foot in front of the other, with a few
creaks and squeaks here and there .
I was thinking of you and missed THE good dancing partner, about a month
ago, when I attended a Srilanka Seniors Club Dinner Dance, here in Toronto –
and beat out every one hollow on the dance floor- just dancing with some
ladies , some of them 30 yrs younger than me.
Then, their young husbands were brave enough to join us ladies and we had
loads of fun !
As the Good Olympic Team Sports Medicine Doctor Says — keep active and
keep moving ,keep active and keep moving , keep active and keep moving –
The New Mantra .
I am proud and honoured and have bragging rights when I say ” I was in
the same class as Siri back in med school ‘ and we the Class of 64 is proud
to have you among us and there are many in our Class of 64, spread around
the globe, that have brought so much Honor to the Class and I feel very
proud and honored to be among such high achieveing giants in so many fields
of medicine .
We surely have spread our selves around the world, honouring Lanka, and
honouring the Class of 64 .
So, I wish you Siri, all the very best, in every thing you do and Happy
Birthday to enjoy with family and friends .
Your old med school pal- Deepthie .
Ps –Come dance with me again, at the next RU- 2018- Beruwala , for See That Girl- She is The Dancing Queen, my claim to fame I guess !!!
Happy birthday Siri 🕺🏽🕺🏽🕺🏽🕺🏽🕺🏽🕺🏽
Across the ocean we send you greetings
As we recall our past joyful meetings
May you be blessed with health joy and happiness on this birthday
And many more good wishes to come all your way.
Ranjit and Praxy
