  2. Suriyakanthi, I thought you were the youngest in our batch. As Sarva was born on the 8th of November 1943, he appears to be the youngest.

    5. On the subject of birthdays, Rohini Abhayaratne was born in Dec 1943, I was born in January 1944 and I believe Manohari Navaratnaraja was also born in 1944. But, we digress, this is supposed to be about Sarva...

  4. Sarva,
    I will never forget the smile you always had during our days in the medical school.I,still,remember that you told me about your experience in working in a hospital in the Eastern Province,where women with Sinhala names never spoke in Sinhalese and the women bearing Tamil names never spoke in Tamil. Surva was surprised by it.
    May your afterlife be with ever lasting happiness.

  5. As all you guys have spoken about his ever smiling face, I will add that it is imprinted in my memory of Sarva. He was quiet, friendly, affable and never got involved in the politics that was all around us at that time.
    Please convey my most sincere condolences to his dear wife, Iroma and his family.
    May his soul REST in PEACE.
    Razaque.

    p.s.. Sorry guys I had gone AWOL for some time. I promise that I shall 'bounce back'...RA.

  7. As the blog administrator, it is my duty to make this request from all blog viewers. Please refrain from discussing birthdays etc. when commenting on an obituary. I was bit reluctant to make this appeal, but I am sure that all of you are mature enough to take such requests in the correct spirit.

    Thank you.
