Brief Visit to London
We were on a brief visit to London in July/August on our way to do the Cosmos European tour that covered six countries. I had time to visit two members of our batch who were my schoolmates at Ananda. I met Suren Iyer after 43 years! The last time I met him was when I attended his homecoming in 1970. I also visited Sunil Abeysuriya at his West Hendon home. I have known Sunil since 1949 when we lived in the same neighbourhood in Manning Town. Much as I would have liked to, I simply didn't have time to meet any others. In fact, most of our friends in the UK would not have known about our visit to London.
