Looking back the years gone and friendships grown
We are passing another significant mile stoneSadly, not many stones left In our marathon of life As a great poet once said, it is the journey that mattersBy George we have had a good stretch thanks to qualify of friends
The tide of friendship, I more than anyone else in batch have realised Does not bank on perfection, riches, looks or not even the backgroundIn fact for mates, my weaknesses & shortcomings became the food for friendship None of us are perfect but those imperfections made us a perfect groundAs perfection is not essential for friendship but care & friendliness are must

Thank you Sam for your sterling work which has kept us together. I feel really proud to belong to this wonderful batch.
Happy New Year to all.
Totally agree with sentiments expressed by Chrisantha Jayantha,
Do not know if I guessed his names correctly, yet will forgive me
Sterling contributions of Sam must be described as batch 64 glue
