 We belong to last Intermediate batch,joined the medical in 1957.Boys out numbered the girls by 75/26.This is the fifth time we have met at different resorts-earlier at OOTY, THEKADI, TRIVANDARAM., SRIPERAMPUDUR, Earlier meet there was a good response with nearly 55 attended with family.At every subsequent meet the numbers dwindled with the members having kicked the bucket or unable to attend due to ill health,or other family commitments and this time the number has been only with 5 girls and 15 boys. All the same the rejuvenation spirit of meeting old pals and exchanging pleasantries ,sharing their activities was enthralling.. One of my class mate Dr.Jana Raowho has spent nearly 25 years at Australia made a mark for himself as outstanding surgeon and above all he was counsel general of Australia at Melbourne for about 20 years. Our class mate Padma Shri. Dr.Bardrinath,pioneer ophthalmic surgeon of world famous Sankar Netralia at Chennai, eventhough he was not able to attend this meet,he is one of our loved friends.Every one of us has contributed to the profession in their own way.
