My condolences to Peri's wife and children. He was a good friend and he always took the time to discuss with me regarding local authority matters. I heard the sad news only today and he will be sadly missed.

When life seems unfair and you lose someone that is dear like our Peri, the questions fill our heart and the answers cannot be found... May it help to know that your loved one is in God's hands and that others are thinking of you.

Very sorry and sad to hear the sudden death of Perinpanathan whom I have known for more than 40 years. He was a great student at JHC and offered support and guidance for junior students during our school days. He will be greatly missed by all of us. My deepest sympathies and condolences to his wife and children.

May his soul rest in peace.

Though I have known Peri for many years, only recently have I had a number of opportunities to meet him. I found him very helpful, soft spoken and respected by all walks of lives.

He was very interested in Tamil culture and was always willing to give his contributions and support to those who were genuinely involved in cultural events.

I cannot believe he has gone forever and it is certainly a great loss for his family and his company (Access Direct).

Only time can heal their loss. My deepest heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends and Access Direct.

Peri the leader
I am deeply shoked to hear about the loss of my dear student and friend Peri . Anpukkum panpukum he was an example to others.His smile made others happy. When he discussed with me about his future after his AL exam I encouraged him to migrate to England, I knew then that he would shine and lead in London. He didnt fail my expectations. Within a few years he organized his college buddies and formed the JHC OBA. He took a leding role in organizing Tamil and cultural classes. He helped his family and friends to migrate to London. He had another 20 years to contribute to the upliftment of his family and community I hope his life and example will inspire everyone with whom he had come into contact to follow his footsteps . My deepest sympathies to his Dear Yoga, Ruban and Rubini . - Francis master

Regrettable News
To the Family of Late Mr. T.S.Perinpanathan and others.
I was told about the irreparable loss of a friend who is known to me for a very long time at Arasady Road, Jaffna. In deed, a shocking news because I met him lastly in November at my nephew's wedding reception at Shendish Manor in England. At that reception Late Mr. T.S.P. served me Black Label at my table.
I would like to take this opportunity to bestow my heartfelt condolences to Late T.S.P's family. Only time will heal that great loss to you, JHC-OBA and others at large.

We were really shocked to hear the sad news. He was with us in Abbey Life for over ten years and we had many memories within those years. We recently had opportunities to personally meet him and exchange lots of ideas.
We will miss our dearest friend very much.

மறையவில்லை மலர்ந்திருக்கிறாய் !


மரணம் எனும் ஒரு சம்பவத்தால்

மறையும் மனிதர்கள் மத்தியில்

மலரும் மனிதர்கள் சிலரே !

தோட்டத்தில் மலரானால்

தோன்றி ஒரு மாலைக்குள் கருகிடும்

தோற்காத மனிதன் நீ மலர்ந்திருப்பதோ !

தோட்டம் ... ஆம மனிதர்களின் மனம் என்னும்

தோட்டம் !

அதனால் நீ வாடாத மலராக‌

மலர்ந்திருக்கிறாய் அண்ணனே !

உன் வாழ்வில் நீ சந்தித்த அநேகம் பேரில்

உற‌வாடி நான் இருந்தது சில கணங்களே ...

கணங்கள் சிலவானாலும் அவைகளின்

கனத்தை என் நெஞ்சம் மறககாது

தேசத்தை ........

நேசித்த உண்மையான‌ சிலருள்

உய‌ர்ந்த உள்ள‌ம் கொண்டவன் நீ

உன் நினைவுகளுக்கு அழிவில்லை

வாழ்வதற்காக உழைப்போர் உள்ளார்

உழைப்பதற்காக வாழ்வோர் உள்ளார்

உயர்ந்த உள்ளத்தோடு இலட்சியத்திற்காக‌

வாழ்வார் ..... அண்ணனே !

உன்னைப் போல் சிலரே ......

எளிமை, நேர்மை, அன்பு இவைகளே

என்றும் மனிதானாக வாழ்வோனின்

எழுச்சிக்கான ஆயுதங்கள்

அவையனைத்தும் உன்னிடத்தில்

தஞ்சம் பூண்டிருந்ததினால் தான்

தரணியில் நீ சிறந்திருந்தாய்

அண்ணனே ! என் அன்புப்

பேரின்பநாதனே ........

பேர் சொல்லும் போதே நெஞ்சில்

இன்பப் பெருக்கெடுதோடச் செய்யும்

பேராற்றல் கொண்ட தமிழன் நீயென்பேன்

வாழ்வின் நீளம் இப்புவியில்

நீ கொண்டது ஏதோ

சில பத்து ஆண்டுகளாக இருக்கலாம்

ஆற்றிய தொண்டுகள் அக்காலத்தில்


ஆக்கிடும் சரித்திரத்தில் நிச்சயம் இடம்பெறும்

அன்பு அண்ணனே ! பேரின்பநாதனே !

நீ மறையவில்லை

மரணம் என்பது சிலருக்கு மட்டுமே

முடிவாகிறது , உன் போன்றோருக்கு

நேசமிகு மக்களின் இதயத்தில்

பாசமிகு மலராக, வாடாத ரோஜாவாக‌

புதிய பரிமாணத்தின் தொடக்கமாகிறது !

உன் உறவுகளினதும், நணபர்களினதும்

ஆத்மசாந்திக்காய் பிரார்த்திக்கும் அதேவேளையில்

நீ மறையவில்லை ! மலர்ந்திருக்கிறாய் என‌

சத்தமாய்க் கூவிக் கொள்கிறேன்

Shock and Disbelief
Unlike most of you, I had only known Peri for almost two years when I worked on projects with Yoga and the Team at Access Direct. Peri always had a ready smile and a wisecrack or two. Such an easy man to get on with, so mild mannered, unassuming and a true gentleman. I read Yoga's Email a few minutes ago, informing me of Peri's sad and untimely demise, and sat at my PC in total disbelief, as most of you will have done.
Yoga and the Team at Access Direct, my heartfelt condolences to you all, I can imagine how shocked you too must have been, especially Yoga, who expected to see him in the office the following day, as per the message above. My condolences to his family too. May the Almighty have mercy on his soul. May he rest in peace. Amin.

I am still in shock of the news of Peri’s sudden death last Thursday. He was with me on that day in the office and when he left the office he told me “Nesan, see you tomorrow”. Will I ever see him again?

He had been with me in the business for the last ten years and I always turned to him for any advice. Now I have lost an excellent colleague and a great friend.

He was highly respected and liked by everyone who is associated with Access Direct, and he will be greatly missed.

Our deepest sympathy.
Mr. Perinpanathan was one of the best friends of my eldest brother and also my whole family. I got to know him as a school Prefect who belonged to the best group of Prefects. He was very well respected by all students because he was kind, courteous and friendly. On behalf of my family I send our deepest sympathy to his family.

It is very shocking to hear our OBAUK's founder president, Mr Perinpanathan's untimely departure from us. He was the backbone of our organisation. He inspired many old boys to join OBA.
