Best Wishes to Esiri!

Esiri BD Edit


Happy Birthday to Esiri,

It is my greatest joy to have a friend like you
It is my greatest pride to have a pal like you
It is my greatest fortune to have a mate like you
And it is the pleasure and good fortune of our batch,
On the eventful day in October ‘64, we all could join you!

A rare privilege for you to be the last to receive greetings,  for the year
Esiri my mate, you are a precious gift from Lord, to delight batch sixty four
By no means that is not all, as your ways are calming and singing is adoring
Wish you a very long healthy life and be recipient of every benevolent tiding

A friend like you is unnecessary to your fellow mates,
As much as  poetry to a poet, philosophy to a philosopher
No survival value like sunlight & water to plants and beings,
Because like those mentioned you breathe value for survival

Have a fantastic day with Chandrika and your adoring kith and kin

      Thank you very much for your good wishes.We had a nice B’day party at the Cinnamon Grand in Sri Lanka with around 100 friends and family including Siri Kannangara and Rose our batch mates.

      Ariya has been too kind with his wonderful poem as only Ariya can do.He is an amazing poet and without doubt “The flower of the flock”.
