Rugby flowed in his veins

The refrain ‘Go Maiya, Go. Go Maiya, Go’ still hums in my ears as I recall the rugby feats at the Bradby encounters of our ‘SPORTS LEGEND’ in the lyrics of the Royal College anthem – School of our Fathers’ composed by its Principal Major H.L. Reid in 1927 runs a line ‘We will learn of books and men and learn to play the game’.

True to those words and one who learnt of books and men and learnt to play the game, maintaining the lofty traditions not worried about the winning or losing as long as one played the game was Dr. INDRAJIT MAITHREE DE ZOYSA ‘MAIYA’ GUNESEKERA, now a leading Consultant Surgeon who joins our proud galaxy of ‘SPORTS LEGENDS’ this Friday.
