  1. 2. Be present in the lobby by 9.15 am and go into the Atrium for coffee.

    Thanks for that useful announcement for the visitors. I trust we meet in a ventricle and believe there is a VSD to facilitate easy movement. Do we enter through the tricuspid or mitral valve? Is there a ASD too to help accommodate such a large crowd. I am sure the lighting on the chordae tendinae will guy us to the right opening. Will the bar be on the Bundle of His so that our glasses and coffee can be placed on the cusps.
    Glad we have Kumar G our Cardiologist to guide us as many have forgotten the lay-out which has so many nooks and crannies and pitfalls. Hope the fibrillations are confined to the atrium.

    1. What if there is mitral stenosis? Maybe there will be someone to perform a valve replacement! We'll miss you ND.

  2. HAPPY GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY
    My apologies for trivialising such an important announcement. I wish I was there to visit the Atrium and also the other events. But may be one day in the future. Please accept my very best wishes for a successful Reunion and a very happy time together.

  3. What wonderful subjects and what great speakers! And what a fantastic programme we are missing! But let me join in with my congratulations to our wonderful batch! I wouldn't have minded being a fly on the wall right at the posterior end of the atrium if I could have. Zita
