|A fitting tribute to our beloved friend Diyanesh Rajaratnam (died in March 1997)|
A reservoir of legal knowledge, he shared it with all (Sunday Times - 25/03/07).
There is so much respect for Diyanesh's pursuit of perfection. He demanded so much from himself and instilled into all who surrounded him that great yearning for perfection.
I write about Diyanesh now as he deserves to be remembered. Diyanesh was a great man and was a role model par excellence. "They who think that you are gone, Because no more your face they see,
Our thoughts are with his beloved wife Devarani and his two wonderful daughters Dashanya and Dhanushka.

Sunil Karunanayake - Undoubtedly Diyanesh was a great Character and easily the most outstanding sportsman Thurstan produced.
Bathiya Seebert - Diyanesh, was a genius no doubt in all these fields, but what I personally felt as a senior of his at Thurstan, was his unlimited capacity for human interaction at all levels and the down to earth approach towards life itself. He, always, loved and lived his life up to his simple aspirations. I personally, along with many past Thurstanites who are regular visitors to my place after our Big Match for fellowship, have been missing him for the last ten years, with his very vibrant and melodically singing for which he himself gave the lead and enjoyed the music and the singing to the hilt very much. He, definitely will live in all our hearts for ever and our thoughts will always be with his family too.
