  2. My Dear Asoka !
    Wish you a Very Happy Birthday . Enjoy this day with lovely Aruns and the rest of the family, if you all can get together in Vero Beach , Florida .
    I have such good , happy memories of you Asoka,– My Co House Officer at Ragama- in Pediatrics , along with Ben Rajapkse , Ahnainmugan , Anslem, Ranjith Silva .
    Also- -the fun times I had at your place in Vero Beach , when I did that trip out there, and stayed with you and Ranjith , and the most generous hospitality extended to me by you, Arun , Ranjith and Shanthi, during that stay back in 1993 I think it was .

    Never really forget that marathon baila session we did at Bentota Beach Hotel !!! , back in 1994– and we both ended up into the final round- and you just about collapsed on the dance floor- trying to keep pace with me , and you never did another session like that with me ever !
    It was soooo good seeing both of you at Beruwala ( 2014 ) . Very unlikely we will meet again…

    Aruns– I hope you are still continuing to do your lovely art works
    I wish you and Aruns , and your children , All The Very Best in Life .

    Keep Well – Be Safe .
    Deepthie .

      You always bring joy, good humour. Will never forget the Ragama days and your trip to Vero.
      We sang, laughed and ate.

  6. Hey Wimal ,
    I am also a ” Keleniya City Mate ‘ – remember the time when you, me and Anslem were together in Std 4 at St Pauls School in Keleniya back in 1952 , and Anslem’s mother was our English teacher ?
    Aruns was also in our class, and she recognised me from photo I sent Asoka, with Anslem and others in 1991 taken in Australia.
    — When Asoka said – ‘ this is Deepthie ” — Aruns says- let me see, there was a Deepthie in my class back in 1952 at St Paul’s School ‘ !
    Well I guess this seems to tell me that I had not changed since she last saw me when I was just 9 yrs old !!!
    Anyway- -a bit of old trivia from the old Keleniya days .
    Keep well Wimal and Iranthie – Deepthie .
