Happy Diwali!

Sam  Thanks for the post .

Seelan- thanks for the Divali Festival notes  on the blog .

Sam– if you want, pick any of these pics for the Blog page .
Seelan– here is Divali – at Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel this morning .
The flower motif was done out of crushed stone, dyed in different colors .
I watch the ladies create this earlier in the day .
Eleven years ago, I watched this same thing done out of rice grains. Now,
rice is a precious commodity , hence crushed stone — mainly crystal ( kiri
garunda ) .

Later on, there was the Lighting of The Lamp Ceremony with traditional
music etc  – and the hotel guests were invited down to participate , with
servings of traditional sweets .

Happy Divali to ALL of Class of 64- from  Deepthie in  Colombo .

RU-22 !

Hi my dear Sam ,
Here is a brief ‘write up ‘ on the Class of 64 Gathering in Colombo-
October – 2022, along with some photos .
I have sent this to a few people, others can see it on the blog .

——- Here are a few pics taken when a few of us gathered at Renuka, on
two separate occasions ,   at Renuka City Hotel for Lunch .
After two years of Covid and other issues plaguing  the world as we know it
today, we were glad to be with each other again .

Life is Short .

The first was Oct 8th – with Abey , Praxy and my self from over seas .
We have the Three Good Convent Girls, ( Praxy, Ranjani and my self )
then, the gp photo at Renuka .
By then, Abey had left , and we were very glad to have him with us, even
for just a little while .
The guys – Abey , Laki Senanayake,  Ajith and Kumar .
We enjoyed each others company and a great Bath Curry meal !

The second time we met was today – Oct 21- again, at Renuka for a nice
hopper feed for lunch .
Nirmalee and little grand daughter were with us, for just a short while,
and they left.
It was nice to see Nirmalee and the little one , even if it was a for a
short while . — Thank you Nirmalee .

Narme , Ranjith Almeida and Roshie , Ranjith Perumal  were there with me an
Praxy , for the rest of the afternoon  , that was filled with fun talk,
jokes, pranks , each one contributing some wild tale of good old days  !

It was sooo , sooo good to see each again , for who knows, who will be
around next year .
Praxy and my self we plan to come again next year ,  mid October , for yet
another round of Class of 64 Gathering in Colombo .

Praxy and my self, we plan to make this trip, yearly, till  we die, and if
any one is willing to join us next year, you are most welcome .!!!!

Keep well – Good Wishes to Class of 64– eagleD .

Please add on – Anoja and Rose  as the gals that came on the 8th , and also – Gita Senanayake .
