Convocation List, Absentia - Sampath Jayarathna

Oh....My undergrad convocation.....After 4 years of total commitment, I missed my graduation. Now only hope is my postgrad convocation, after how many years???? 5....6.....

General Convocation of the University of Peradeniya was held on 08th March,2007 at the University Gymnasium. 2850 graduands from the Faculties of Agriculture, Arts, Dental Science, Engineering, Medicine, Science and Veterinary Medicine & Animal Science were conferred degrees in person at this convocation.
Check the list here. Im in the Absentia list 2nd person. I cant remember who is Anusha sirimanna. I know the other guy Thushara(Rauma), he is also at US doing his MBA. He phoned me couple of times........

I missed all my computer special batch buddies.......still remember how we wait hours at the New common door step for Dr. Bandara's lectures. Hope guys remember how fun it was. Still remember all the funny stories.......anxiously waiting for a call from Dr. Bandara "Sampath, today I have very important meeting, wont be able to come, inform others. We'll have a lecture on Staturday 8 to 4 flat". And remember how the 8 to 4 flat starts at 1pm and end at 1.45pm .....how funny it was. Remember we went to Akbar Hall to have some tea and back to the lecture ready for 2 to 5 flat 3 hour lecture and finish it within 15 minutes!!! How much fun we had.....when our Fuzzy End exam postponed.......Me, diga and dewa got the news early .....but we deliberately made it late informing others and have much fun on how guys worked and crammed for the exam which was already postponed. Story abt my phone having a CLI picture for Dr. Bandara, hope guys remember, with that, before answering the phone hoping to have an idea Dr. Bandara is calling to postponed the lecture. Dr. Saluka's lecture at the laboratory. Sudu malli was the only one listening to the lecture. All the others surfing the net. Specially me. Not even listened to a word......totally at the net for whole 2 hours and still got A's for Patterns and Distributed. How we crammed for Distributed exam. Specially Dewa and me. After finishing 400 power point slides......again Mullu came with another set of power point slides on the morning of the exam day. How we made Class diagrams for the Patterns......remember from the reverse engineering, code to class diagram......Dewa with total 12 page big map size class digram.....me with 6 pages and diga with 4 pages......how funny it was......And sudu Malli came with 1 page class diagram for his program......still remember how Dr. Saluka opened the class diagram for Dewaniya's program.......Chora katta potha.....lots of chora katta from Diga.....after that he stopped telling anything.....im wondering where we put that book.....there were very interesting stories abt keki .....and some other girls.....A party out to Kandy......with all the batch guys.....specially Katta and his fried rice.....one who start eating stops everything b'se of a stomachache. After that asked "can I have one pack to bring it to home???" Sudu mlli broke his leg b'se of our continuous fun on him.

Lots of stories.....no end.......Will be in mind forever....

Hoping to meet u guys, next December, till then ...........

Hi, It is nice to see your remember all most all the fun stuff and it was really nice reading ur post, for few min i went to those good old days of our life. Can you remember the call we made to Dr B and what has happened :). Scary times dudes.

Finally I will never forgets the days we had in Jayathilake(with sam and digs). Hay we watched film after film (Film festivals..) . Life was really fun, films, chatting, stories and many more.

It was a great time in our life. Simply we did every thing, games, internet, IT center, part time jobs, films, chatting, playing- me going to the grounds :D, chasing girls..:) , we did everything except studying. We did everything till 2 weeks before exams. Just before exams we manage to cramp and get it over. Thanks sam for all our helps and ur wonderful ability of guessing exam questions.
Most important thing is we had the most wonderful uni life and still mange to do well with our life.

Great to meet and spend time with all of the guys in our 01-batch.

Hay sam u know some thing, during the convocation it is only science our 01- batch mates claps continuously for the whole badge mates. Not even our juniors or e-faculty guys. Non one claps for others. It shows still as a batch we are the best even though we had lot of differences.

So it was great times in our life and I was lucky to meet such nice and good ppl in my life.

Nothing will be forgotten, nothing will be forgotten for ever.
