Lalin’s Column: Rugby and Bradby

In 1957, while I was at S Thomas which had not re opened for the new year yet, I was invited to unofficially join the Royal 6th form by RK Samarasinghe, Ben Eliyathamby, Lorenz Perera and others. I was introduced to the form master who was from Jaffna as a new boy. He was made to believe that my name was Vijayananthan Arulanandam (who was actually my Miller House dorm mate) and on enquiry was assured that the Principal (Arulanadam’s father) was well. For a former Trinitian and now a Thomian to infiltrate Royal then 55 years ago was no sweat for just one or 2 days.
