It gives me great pleasure to do the fifth Speedy interview. The last four interviews in order were Cyril Ernest, Zita Subasinghe Perera, Lucky Abeyagunawardena and Suriyakanthie Amarasekera, all of whom have distinguished themselves in their chosen careers. My fifth subject is the charismatic and most distinguished Paediatrician, Prof. Sanath P Lamabadusuriya, a batch mate who has reached the pinnacle of success in his field.
Speedy: Good morningSanath. I would like to call you Sanath in this interview although we are much more accustomed to calling you Lama.
Sanath: OK then, I shall call you Speedy and you will call me Sanath.
