When you say batch of 1960 does it not mean all who entered medical
school in 1960. So shouldn’t Gonsaga be included even if he graduated
much later. On the contrary Rasalingam and Pameswaran Kandiah entered
medical before 1960.
Yes, he failed the 2nd
MB and fell back. He did finally graduate. I spoke to Sarath
Hemachandra and H.P Gunawardana and they remember him well. Gonsaga was
a very low key guy. He sat next to me in the Physiology lecture
theater. I am 100% sure of him. I understand some may not be
remembering him because it is well over 55 yrs since we entered medical
school. His name should be added to the departed list.

information gathered so far of Gonsaga is that he fell back
and joined the junior batch at third MB level.
It is not clear whether he finally qualified with others that batch ?
However , people in 1967 batc do not remeber his name !
