Best Wishes to Seelan!

Seelan BD edit

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR GOOD MAN OF SEVEN VIRTUES – SATH GUNA SEELAN !!!

I wish you All The Very Best- on this Special Day- and make sure you get a good one of The  Sumihiri Pane  to Celebrate this Very Special Day !

I think it is called Chevas Regal or something like that – being that very good Convent Girl- I am not quite familiar with this kind of  special drink !

Jokes apart- Seelan- it has been such a pleasure having you in the Class of 64- and in the S gp at that !

You are such a kind and generous person, always ready to pitch in where needed,   never forgot the humble origins , where we all started life.

The Creator has been good to you- giving you that Midas Touch  and a Simple Honorable Soul – not too many have this combination in todays world .

Thanks to the Blog- ( Sam – please note ! )  I seem to know you now, even more now ,  than I knew you back at Med School.

I see you now,  with ‘ different eyes ‘, that makes me appreciate all that you are – a wonderful simple soul- living up to your SATH GUNA .

Who ever gave you this name – seem to ‘see ‘ into the Future ..

Blessings to you my dear friend- on this  Special Day- and May You Live and Enjoy all your remaining days, as if it is another  Happy Birthday Day—with one exception—That Sumihiri Pane  stuff- keep it for Special Occasions Only —like when we all meet at Beruwala 2018 RU !!

S gp pal- Deepthie  .

 

My dear Seelan,
On this most auspicious day, once upon a time
Born a boy, as a gift to his parents hearts divine
They aptly named him, ‘Sath Guna Seelan’
Knowing he would be the ‘Toast of his land & town
 
‘Sath’ means good ‘(k)guna ‘Seelan’ well disciplined
This boy now grown to be a well respected gentleman
A billioneer, clever and charming and an astute clinician
Wish him a happy birthday & a healthy long life with Jean.
Ariya

Happy birthday Seelan 🥃🥃🥃🥃🥃🥃🥂🥂🥂🥂🥂🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻

Seelan you are our good old friend
Who always likes to tease us but likes to befriend .
You are a kind old buddy with plenty of good cheer,
So it is a great pleasure  to wish you the very best for a great new year .
Praxy and Ranjit

  1. Best wishes for a wonderful Birthday Seelan! It’s hard to believe one year has gone by since we started the BD salutation program. Thanks for being one of the earliest supporters of the Blog. Hope you have many more happy and healthy BD to come.

  2. Seelan I interpret your name differently . Sath = Seven, Guna = Kind, Seelan = Pious . Seven times a kind pious person. I think the name suits you perfectly.

    Piching and I had the pleasure of meeting you and Jean at Siri Kanna’s birthday party in 2014. We got to know you both , better. Your sense of humor was reflected in your speech and action even there. Reading your comments on the web always brings a smile and even a giggle sometimes. Please keep up the good work.

    Piching joins me to wish you many happy returns of the day. All the best now and years to come.

    With best regards to you and Jean.

  3. Many happy returns, Dear and Witty Seelan. May you have good health and contentment together with Chiva’s for many years ahead. You came to our rescue for the RU 64 which we can never forget. I have yet to come across a person with your combination of a golden heart , wit and repartee, and professional accomplishment inspite of a self inflicted injury, all in one. You are good friend , Seelan. May God bless you and Jean is my sincere prayer.

  4. Seelan forgot to mention that your birthday tree is the Elm Tree, meaning that you are noble minded,generous, good sense of humour,cheerful, practical, honest and faithful partner, and adores Chiva’s. That makes it seven( Sath ), which in Biblical terms means wholeness. A complete human being. Kuna is full of good values, and Seela means the same with discipline. So I agree with Ariya and Nisantha, wishing you anything more that is possible.

  5. Seelan, My dear friend. I thought I will squeeze my greetings to you before 45 others great you. Hope you saw MY reply to you for my Birthday wishes a week ago.
    I agree with Nisantha’s & Narme’s analysis of your name. First pieces were right on the money Third part [ Seelan=Pious ] is questionable. I think it means ; greatest honorable human being!!. You are a great guy, your devotion, faithfulness & friendship is unbelievable. We had a great 6 days with you when Iranthie & I visited you in Sylvania Waters a few years ago.
    Iranthie joins me in wishing our dear esteem friend across the Pacific, the very best of the day. Remember, I have your Chivas Regal with me to deliver personally, so I can share. Love to Jean.

  6. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SEELAN, WISHING YOU MANY MORE HAPPY AND HEALTHY ONES. There has anlysis and interpretations of the meaning of your. Credit goes to your parents and to you for fulfilling their hopes for you. Any way I don’t worry all about that. If that is true I should be a “beautiful gem”. I know I am neither. All I know is you are one my dearest friends. We will continue that. All of us know of your success professionally and socially. The first time I noticed you was at our first Law-Medical when you at the other end of the hose from the toddy barrel!!. You are “God fearing man” limiting to Chivas Regal and Christian brothers Brandy. Congratulations to Jean for taking care of you. Our best to both. dharma and yogamany.

  9. My dear friends THANK YOU.

    Sam, I wonder where you got my photo with a white tie? Thanks for Blog BD salutation & your wishing.

    I am fascinated by the way my “S” group pal Deepthie, Poet Ariya, Good old friend Praxy, Pious Nisantha, Piching & The great Radio Ceylon Narme analysed my name!! – I never knew this. Now, knowing the meaning, hereafter, I will try & follow accordingly. Only hitch is that I don’t have many years to follow. Hopefully, our man above grants me some bonus years.

    Wimal, you re- defined the meaning of seelan & according to Our “beautiful gem” Dharma the credit goes to my parents.

    Dear Swarna, Ranjit/Shanthi, Soma/Indira, Simone Rani & Dalpe, thanks for your wishes.
    Selvi & Satha, my long time close friends – thanks for the moral support & wishing

    May God bless you all & hopefully we will meet again in Oct 2018

    PS:-Jean organised a party yesterday, amongst others our batch mates, Siri Kannangara & KV Sritharan as well as other family friends, Dr Nadanachandran & Dr Nirmalanandan ( some of you may know) were here. We had a good time.
    I AM OK NOW !! ( Thanks for asking)
