    Hi Sandhya Kumar,

    This is Ramesh Shankar from your batch. I justed visited the site today for the first time. It is nice to see your photograph and your credentials. I am in UK as Consultant Psychiatrist. As u might be aware our batch silver jubilee is next year [2009] and we are planning for a reunion in a big way as usual and so I am trying to get hold of all of our batchmates living abroad. If u have any details of them in there please let me know. I am blessed with two little angles. Our batchmates meet here quiet often execpt a few. We have about ten here but Senthur JeyaMurugan is on his way there to do fellowship in Radiology in Miami. Keep in touch.

    Good Luck and regards to your family,
