A Walk with the Editor

There are tons of memories I cherish from my Gavel journey. In fact, every Gavelier has them. Having a simple plain tea with the gang to going on amazing outings – yes! We all have lots of memories to laugh back at. Being part of the ExCo was just like the icing on the cake. You not only get to experience Gavel meetings and outings but also get to see how the club functions. From Read more…

A Webmaster’s Musings

I didn’t even realize that it has been a year since I became the webmaster of the Gavel Club of the University of Colombo. I can still remember that day when I was officially appointed as the Webmaster at the Annual General Meeting held at the Chemistry Lecture Theatre of Faculty of Science. Although it’s been a year, I still feel like all of this happened a couple of days before.  As all the other Read more…

“A Tale of Many Apples” – how the Gavel Club went crazy and how we saw our President do weird things

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 him beyond measure. Shamla saw this happening and decided to stop in her tracks and rage on about Apple Inc. Read more…

Surprise.. Surprise…

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? Well, wherever our Gaveliers found their internet connection strongest. At what time? 5-7 pm (it obviously did go longer than that, but we’ll say 5-7 just for now). But most importantly it was the time to bond with a new Gavel fam, Gavel Club of South Eastern University of Sri Read more…

HEROES

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 aliens to save the world but fight day and night to bring food to our table, to protect us. They Read more…

Keeping up with 2020

If there is one thing that the whole world would agree on right now, it is that 2020 has been a very crappy year, to say the least. Even though many of us had high hopes for the 2020s to be The Decade that sets the wheels spinning in the right direction for us, it has turned into a vicious circle that has had us on the edge since almost the first week of January.

Setting Goals in Life and Pulling Through

How Mr. Pradeep Kumar gave us new perspectives on life after just two hours of talking. I hadn’t really heard that much about Mr. Kumar, except that he was the current Senior Vice President and General Manager of Hewlett Packard Enterprises, and the leader of HPE’s PointNext Technology Services business group. I was also told that he lives in Houston, Texas. My interest was piqued – this man has achieved so much and is literally Read more…

“The One with the NIBM Gavel Club”

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 stressful exams. But there are things that we do miss about the university. And that’s where our joint meeting with Read more…
