It was the 27th of April. The day began with the first light of sunrise. We all gathered at the university where we were willing to take free transport from the University of Colombo to the Wayamba University. The journey wasn’t supposed to be a trip, but it was. This was an acceptance of an […]
A joint meeting. AND a hybrid meeting. Nothing quite like this had been attempted in the 241-Educational-Meeting history of Gavel UOC, but if there is one thing we know, it’s that Gavel never stops. The Gaveliers of the Gavel Club of University of Kelaniya and the Gavel Club of the University of Colombo rocked the […]
Amongst what felt like a confined series of days for the past year, weekly Gavel meetings tinged at least one day of those monotonous weeks. To top it all, the 23rd of October marked an indelible day as the joint meeting with the Gavel club of University of Ruhuna took place. The meeting was called […]
A thrilling short story. On a cold, gloomy day (I’m assuming, we didn’t get much detail about this), Minura was walking along the tree-lined road near our University. It’s good to note that none of these trees bear fruit. While he was walking, out of nowhere, an apple dropped on his head (Newton vibes), shocking […]
Okay! Before you start reading- my fellow detectives- I want all of you to click on that audio file below; let’s do this in the 99 style! Severe warning- you might dance a little bit. So what exactly happened that day? Well, a lot of unexpected things happened, to be honest. So allow me to […]
What a meeting! This was the thought that came to my mind when we finished the 183rd meeting in our calendar. When? 8th July. Where?

Yes! We all loved superman when we were kids. We all wanted to fly across the planet wearing a red cape just like superman at some point. But when we grew older, it was clear that cartoon heroes aren’t the real heroes in life. The real heroes, who might not be able to fight against […]
The newest and most unexpected addition to the list of changes that Covid-19 has brought in to the world is, that the university students are dying to get back to their universities. Come on. Who are we kidding? We never wanted to go back to the place of lengthy lectures, endless assignments, and finally the […]
A quick recap of the Joint Meeting between the Gavel Clubs of University of Colombo and University of Sri Jayawardenepura. The 7th of May 2020 was a special day for us all; not because the curfew was miraculously lifted or the virus disappeared, but because we finally had the chance to see new faces and […]
29th February 2020 was a celebratory day for both UOJ and UoC Gavel Clubs, as their first ever Joint Educational Meeting took place at the University of Colombo premises. The day started with greetings and getting to know each other at the Independence Square. As members of a newly formed Gavel Club, UOJ Gaveliers sought […]
