It so happened that Asokan and I  with our wives were on the same flight to Colombo. We wished to meet resident and migrant (avian lingo) batch mates. One call to Aley and we had 6 migrant and 7 residents. Aley called them Foreign Bodies (FB)and Locals. Some of the spouses  were able to join. There were 20 in all. We had a lovely time. We were the loudest and rowdiiest in Palmyra, Renuka Hotel with  Alley, Shoukat and Gaspar as main entertainers. Anoja was at the burnt of most jokes. Being a great sport and best friend to most she took them all in stride. Aley has trained her well !!!!!!!!
Here are some pictures  I took with the phone 
 Wish more  batch mates were there.

  5. Thanks Dharma for sharing the photos. As usual everyone seems to be enjoying each others company and having a rollicking time.

    Our time together is going to be shorter and shorter as all of us are quite aware. Therefore we have to enjoy all the mini reunions we possibly can.

  6. Good on you Dharma. We are all having mini RU now & then which is good fun.

    I went to SriLanka with 14 of my relatives from Malaysia on a conducted tour – (July 2017). We visited east, west & north including some of the islands :- Punkudu Theevu ( The man who built the twin tower in KL – Ananda Krishnan’s home village ) & one of my BIL’s village – Karai Nagar. Toddy was not a problem!!!

    We spent the last 2 days in Colombo. I shouted a dinner for my relatives at the Palmyrah (Renuka). At short notice, Aley, Narme & Dalpe joined us. It was FUN – Micro RU. We had “KOOL” “Appam” etc – of course with plenty of Scotch


  7. Dear Dharma
    Thanks for the lovely photos. Yesterday I tried to view them on my iPhone buy couldn’t. But today I managed to view them on my laptop and they are very good. Looks like you all have had a great time.
    I hope all of them on the photo will attend the RU too.

    Ranjit A please make sure they all say ”yes” to attend the RU.
