  4. HI Jeeva ,
    You are another Jewel On The Crown of The Class of 64 .
    I am very proud of you and have bragging rights on yet another High Achiever in the Class of 64 .
    I remember the days from the old Catholic Students Federation Social days, when all the ‘good boys ‘ from St Joseph’s College, where you were studying at that time, and other Catholic Colleges in Colombo , would come to see the ‘good girls ‘ from the convents !
    No body told us ‘not to look’ !

    I also remember very well, travelling with your sister Padmini, ( who was a bit senior to me ) in the bus from Kotehena to Bambalapitya in the morning, to get there by 8 .30 am at Holy Family Convent .

    Little did we know , back in the day, that we will be scattered around the globe, 50 yrs later, bringing Honor and Glory to good old Lanka .
    Keep it up-
    Good wishes .


  5. Selvarani- Many thanks to you for giving us this info on Jeeva, that makes us proud to be among such Giants in the Field of Medicine, in the Class of 64 around the globe.
    You were one of those real good convent girls from St Bridgets , that came for all the Cath Soc meetings and socials– so we knew each other, even before we started life at Norris Canal Road !


  6. Congratulations Jeeva . Getting the award once was great. Getting the award twice is beyond compare. I do not know off hand anyone receiving the award twice.

    What’s our colleaugue s do not know is that your research involves muscle contraction , muscle relaxants , the anatomy physiology, Biochemistry all put together. This is original research.

    As an anesthesiologist I can understand the the time , effort and dedication that went into your findings.

    We as-batch mates are very proud of you. The Sri Lankan medical community and the entire country should be proud of your achievements.

    Piching joins me in wishing you the very best and all the success in your future research.

    Nisantha and Piching.


    1. Thank you Nisantha for informing us of the original research work done by Jeeva .
      Being an Anesthetist your self, you know the kind of work that would have gone into this original research work .
      Very impressive .
      The best part Jeeva , is that you have been sooo humble about it , and if Selvarani did not let it out, none of us would every know anything !
      Again- Jeeva , Well done and Wish you all the Best in your future endeavors
      deepthie .
