Dear Sriyan,

"A gift from the class of 59 to spread the word about the importance of preserving aspects of history for posterity."

My name is not to be associated with this work - thank you.

Read, digest, ponder and ask me to make corrections / adjustments if you feel the adjustments are warranted.

Suggest you send to Rama. If he approves - share. Also if Rama has given you the green lights please share
that with me as well.

Thanks for preserving my anonymity.

To. The Prefects Group,

I am reproducing below an extract of a mail, received from Dr Ramachandran Chandrasegaram who was a School Prefect in the sixties, which you will find self explanatory.

I have planned to visit Sri Lanka after 52 years ( I left Sri Lanka in May 1964 ) to pursue my higher studies in India.I am coming along with my doctor classmates to commemorate our golden jubilee of our entry to medical college in 1965.It is a very short trip of 2 days in Colombo.I would be reaching Colombo around 5.30 p.m. on Saturday 21 May,2016 and would be checking in at hotel Mount Lavinia. Could you arrange a meeting of all our friends on Saturday or Sunday at 7.00 p.m


As per the above request Prefects Group have organised a dinner for Ramachandran's friends and wives to meet him and the family members at The Grand Oriental Hotel (GOH), York Street, Colombo 1 on Sunday 22nd May 2016 commencing 7.00 P.M. and the cost per head will be Rs 2000.
(Welcome drink and International Buffet dinner).
You are assured of excellent fare.
Payment in cash will be collected on arrival.

I am copying this mail to the entire membership (whose contact details are available with me) so that if any College Prefect living overseas is due to be in Sri Lanka around the same time, he could join. As it has always been, the idea behind these gatherings, besides the fellowship aspect, is to meet up with members living abroad who will be here on holiday and to recall happy memories of events which took place during those halcyon years- Life in the cop shed.

I would appreciate very much if you could pass on my mail to any College Prefects and friends of Dr Ramachandran Chandrasegaram with whom you are in touch and request them to attend this dinner.

Any member is free to bring as a guest on self-financing basis any friends of Dr Ramachandran Chandrasegaram but bearing in mind that this event is exclusively for Thomians (need not be a Prefect) of whatever era and their wives. This event is organised by The Prefects Group.


You could read more about our group in the web and also see the full Prefects list.
Kindly log on to http://www.tyretracks.com/showthread.php?t=809.


I would be very grateful if you could please confirm your participation by latest 16th May 2016. Kindly note that payment has to be made for the numbers confirmed. Hence if you confirm it is imperative that you attend.



With kind regards.



Sriyan Jayasekera.

Hi Rama,
It is good news that you will be in Colombo in May. Out of the guys you mention I am only in contact on a regular basis with Vajira, Kenny (mostly e mail) and Anura my brother.
I believe Lakshman Watawala is in contact with most of the guys you mention, so he would be the best person to coordinate at this end.
Please liaise directly with Lakshman.
Kind regards
Bandula
