  8. Dear Dalpe,
    Time has moved on from our combined study days at Mount to where we are now. Eventful life where memories remain in spite of the passage of time and infrequent contact. The last I remember is sharing the same table at our RU when my wife Daya was still with us.
    I wish you a very happy birthday today and many more in the years to come.
    Love and best wishes to the whole family,

  10. Dear All,

    Thank you for your wishes & reminder of the past good old days.
    Now we need to stay safe & more or less restricted with interactions with only the close friends & family.
    Luckily I have my three children & their spouses & six grand children all in Sri Lanka to keep us going till we get over the Covid situation & hopefully get back to some kind of normalcy.
    Best Regards,

    Shanti (Dalpe)


  11. Happy Birthday Dalpe, wish you many more happy and healthy ones. Reminiscing about combined studies at CJ’s. Then at LRH having brandy with ginger ale and Buhari fried chicken, I reimember Gaspa was also in the group . i think there was one more, forgotten. Happy about your post clinical contributions to Sri Lanka.


  12. Dear Paul, Aley Swarna & Dharma,
    Thanks again for your wishes.
    Dharma I believe the other person was Asokan but I think he did not taste the Brandy. It was the local Variety “Bee Hive Brandy”
