The train journey and Life's jouney

THE TRAIN journey and Life,s jouney: 
At birth we boarded the train and our parents were there, and we believed they will always travel by our side. 
As time went by, other people boarded the train; and they were significant like our siblings, friends, children, and even the loved ones in our life. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train or have already stepped down, leaving us on this journey alone. Others will step down over time and leave a permanent vacuum. Some, however, will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. 
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, felicitations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, with love, forgiveness, and offer the best to our fellow passengers. 
It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty, we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
Let us make a resolution in the forthcoming year to be nice to those taking the journey with us, help them while travelling and also helping them while stepping down from the train.
I wish you all a joyful journey through 2018 and thereafter.

Dr Emil Savundarranayagam

email from Karals -
The prince of con men

 I remember him in his hey day and his saying - "The British were wary of driving a 'mini' through a legal loop-hole, I drove a double-decker bus through it".
I think he was a close relative of Cyril Gardiner of 'Tuckers Autodrome'.
I remember our 'Block Concert' where the Late 'Karthi' played Lord Profumo and 'Geri' played Miss. Christine Keeler.
I also remember Prof Milroy Paul mentioning about Christine Keeller and Profumo and the Osteopath Dr. Stephen a Ward Class.
Good viewing

*WOMAN*. . . . . . . .

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day.......

An angel came by and asked." Why spend so much time on her?"

The lord answered. "Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?"

●She must function on all kinds of situations 
●She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time.
●Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
●She must do all this with only two hands.
●She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.

THE ANGEL was impressed" Just two hands.....impossible!

And this is the standard model?"

The Angel came closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord".
"She is soft", said the Lord,
"But I have made her strong. You can't imagine what she can endure and overcome"

"Can she think?" The Angel asked...
The Lord answered. "Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate".

The Angel touched her cheeks....
"Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her".
"She is not is a tear". The Lord corrected the Angel…

"What's it for?" Asked the Angel..... 
The Lord said. "Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride."...

This made a big impression on the Angel,
"Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvellous"

Lord said ."Indeed she is.
■She has strength that amazes a man.
■She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
■She holds happiness, love and opinions.
■She smiles when she feels like screaming.
■She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
■She fights for what she believes in.
■Her love is unconditional.
■Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life"

The Angel asked: So she is a perfect being?
The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback.
"She often forgets what she is worth".

Send it to all the women u respect ..๐Ÿ‘
And to all men who respect woman ๐Ÿ‘

*Being a woman is priceless*

Pass this to every woman in your contact to make her feel proud of herself.

Hi Wedi

Thank you for all your efforts and it would be advisable that the flyer is sent out soon to all contacts in our batch.

Karu & I checked the draft flyer and we spotted few Topo errors which needs correcting:
a.  Jayalth should read as Jayalath 

b. Me should read as I 

c.    Register should read as Registration 

Few comments ;

1:  Do you need to explain that those who register for the day would get lunch and evening tea for the package ?

2. You have included few names from UK & Australia , it would be nice to add a name or two from USA as well?

3.  You could add at the end;   Please share this with all your batch mates in case we have not included their emails.
We would also appreciate if you could kindly send the current email addresses of any of the batch mates we may have inadvertently missed out.

We believe you should be able to get  most of the email contact details from Philip for sending out the flyer.

Once the flyer is sent out, we could communicate with our batch mates domicile in UK to promote their attendance and promote the event as much as we could. We could also update you with the current emails if they have not been updated in your list.

Best wishes to everyone in the A Team.


Nana & Karu
