Happy birthday dear Ariya🍸🍸🍸🍸🎈🎈🎈🎈🎁🎁🎁🎁
Don’t worry about getting a year older.
It is better than being a pimply teenager.
To us you are wonderful and everything about you is right
So enjoy your birthday and dance away into the middle of the night.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU ARIYA ! –
This is your Very Special Day-
My fond Birthday Wishes come your way !
I really had a hard time selecting the photos of this very happy faced fun
man- you look so smashing in every photo, with that real wide eyed look and
with a real Happy Face Smile !
So, I picked out a few – the most I have included in any one’s birthday
Love the way you Love to Eat- birthday cake, Class lf 64 cake, and the yum
yum New Year Feast laid before you, in your home .
These photos show the ‘many faces of the man in red ‘ – enjoying food,
meeting friends, dancing , serious acedemic lecturere, and my very
favourite photo of you and me together- all dressed up for the Dinner Dance
looking real grand .
I am really, really happy to have the bragging rights to say, that I belong
to The Class of 64 that has a member who is the Order of The British Empire
I am sooo proud of you, knowing how hard your worked to get to where you
We all had humble beginings , in the Pearl of The Indian Ocean, the
Island in The Sun , and we all did what we could over the years, to get to
where we are today , but, your reached the top of the line among us , to
receive such well deserved National Honour .
Your acedemic excellence, poetic skills, negotiating skills, brilliant
ideas to keep the Class of 64 Web page/ friendship/ contact going , just
boggles my mind .
Sam wove the web-and you Ariya- glued us into that Web, and now, there is no
I really have no words to say Thank you to you , in any language !
You have given me many names over the past 3 yrs- and the one I like best
is ‘ Dilisena Tharuwa’ !! as I still star gaze from time to time , when ever
I still carry around with me, a paper print out , where ever I travel out
of Canada, the lovely set of verses you wrote out for me, with a lovely
photo of my home and garden, and describing it in such wonderful way .
This really touched my soul- :” My Home is My Mind “– typed out in the
colors of the rainbow .
I have most of your writings in a special folder called ” Ariya Poems ‘–
to tell you how much I value your writing and I must add- you MUST compile a
litle booklet with ‘ Ariya Contemplations ‘, and give it to us when you come
for the RU 2018 !
How about this for a suggestion ???- Ok with you I hope .
I can go on for ever about you, must I must let others say their piece too
So, let me wish you a VERY Happy birthday ,and enjoy this day, and all the
days ahead of you with your lovely family .
Good wishes to Thavam .

It gives me great pleasure wishing a wonderful Birthday to you. It was nice to reconnect with you at the last RU after our days in Kurunegala. That led to the creation of the Batch64 blog , with you being one of the early supporters. Even though I don’t comment much, all your contributions are wonderful. Keep them coming

My dear Sam,
On the eve of my birthday, I write this note to thank you with huge admiration, appreciating your forthrightness in setting up a private, yet a very effective, web site for our batch.
Your whole hearted committment to stick with it, through thick and thin, despite even health scares, has been the single most reason for its resounding success.
Thank you for your immense tolerance and brotherly love throughout, accomodating an annoyingly irritant customer like myself, which can only be described as a super human effort.
To honour you and the great support given by many friends (with special referece to Deepthue and Praxy with Birthday salutation priject) in the midst of the most distinguished batch, added following lines and I will be immensley grateful if you could kindly publish it on my birthday.
‘It is one of the charitable dispensations of Providence that perfection is not essential to
friendship. (Alexander Smith)
My siblings in 64 entry batch, proved to the world that above statement is true,
by taking an imperfect ‘no hoper’ like myself to their bosoms and removing as much ill-fitting irregularities and roughnesses, in a period as short as half a decade!
I salute all my friends for their tolerance and kindness, for their patience and guidance.
Ariya who entered the medical school in ’64, as a nobody was able to leave as somebody!
