My regrets to Bala:

Dear Bala,

This is what I was worried about. It is clashing with the Annual Get-together of CoMSAA which is on the 
same weekend. I have attended all Get-togethers of the Colombo Med School Alumni Association 
(CoMSAA) since the inaugural year 2011 and I have already confirmed with current President that I
shall not miss this year's as well.

By a sheer coincidence, I received this e-mail from the current President today. It had been addressed
to just five of us.

Dear Sarath Gamini,

Thank you for inviting me to contribute to this year's CoMSAA souvenir. I will let you know by Monday whether I can think of a suitable topic. It has to suit the setting around the time I was a medical student from 1962 to 1967. I will be in Belihuloya this weekend and can think over it! I have this habit of re-visiting the places that I have been to with Mangala soon after our wedding in 1970. We have already been to Elle many a time. Although we have passed through Belihuloya, we have never spent a night there. The only difference is that on the last occasion, we were at the famous Rest House (where the former Health Minister WPG Ariyadasa was in the next room!). This time we'll be at Glenrock Boutique Hotel which is closer to Tenne where there is an Aranya. Mangala and her sister have arranged an alms giving to the monks in that Aranya.

I also received the Flyer that Aruni hadsent and wish to confirm my presence at the venue from the previous afternoon as we usually do. I shall get in touch with Aruni for our tickets and the hotel booking. Jetwing Blue in Negombo was where we celebrated our 50th Anniversary Batch Reunion since graduation a couple of months ago. Only sad thing is that as I informed you before, we will have to miss the Annual Dinner of the Sri Lanka College of Community Physicians that Saturday.
