When something feels this special, you know you’ve got a big responsibility ahead of you and that is exactly what the co-chairs of Oration 2022 GV Chamishka and I felt on the day of the OC announcement. The OC was announced at the end of the Avurudhu meeting and as 21 of us stood in […]
~ Official Gavel Trip – 2022 ~ Prep week It all started on May 6th, a Friday night with a WhatsApp group called “Gavel Trip ’22”.

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.
