Sneak peak into the BOD 2022-23

Manula Pethiyagoda

President

Rtr. Manula Pethiyagoda is a proud product of the Faculty of Science, currently reading for a B.Sc. in Physical Science. Literally exemplifying true leadership 💪 in all the chores he undertakes; from groundwork 👷 to uplifting our club name to greater heights 📈 while assisting his fellow members in the friendliest way, this endearing young gentleman 🤵‍♂ is the perfect example for the definition of a caring 🫂 president.

He may seem strict 🧐 from the outer perspective but is completely the opposite in reality and having a little chit-chat with this individual will prove it to you 🫵🏻. Being a funny character will make you think ‘how is he even doing that?’ 🤔 but just as being funny and very calm in nature, he is also well focused 🥸 in everything he does at all times.

When it comes to F.R.I.E.N.D.S, this guy is a diehard fan 😱, and even a person who gets to know him today will definitely be able to tell that right away ✌️. According to his batchmates, he has even attended lectures by the name; Chandler Bing proving without a shadow of a doubt that he is the King 🫅 of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S fandom. So, come to him to know anything about F.R.I.E.N.D.S! 🤩

He’s got a mystery girl 👩🏻‍🦱💘 in his heart (the girl’s got no idea that he likes her though 🤫) and he might try to give a hint 🤭 about the girl during this joyful year. Let’s be attentive to his motivational speeches!

A person who does not eat meat or fish is normally called a vegetarian 🥕🍆, but according to him the dictionary is wrong (he’s a vegetarian but eats fish 🐟 and some eggs 🥚 as well) and he has had many instances where he’s had nothing 😔 to eat at gatherings.

As it is said, among the avenues of RACUOK, Mr. President Community Service Avenue එකට තමයි ගොඩක් ආදරේ… 😍🥰 and other avenues are පොඩ්ඩක් jealous 🤨 about that fact.

Nowadays, whenever we get power cuts during meetings 🤝, the next second we are to expect a message from him in the group, "current na guys, kadi kadi ahenne…" and then the next second he comes with a flashlight on 🔦 being the saviour of the meeting 🙏. Even powercuts doesn't have the power from stopping this dedicated personality attending a meeting! 🥳

Never ever be shocked 😮🫣 if a meme or a sticker containing what you did inadvertently 🤭 has been shared in a group; he is always on the lookout 🧐 for such things, but also note that comparatively, the number of stickers made for him is higher (a good poser 🕺).

So ladies and gentleman, here we are proudly declassifying Mr. President; the captain 🫅🏻 of this amazing voyage of leading the Rotaract Club of University of Kelaniya for the year 2022-23, Rtr. Manula Pethiyagoda! 🥳👏

Kisal Ekanayake

Immediate Past President

This charismatic gentleman is a proud product of the Faculty of Commerce and Management Studies, majoring in Financial Engineering. Literally exhibiting the very definition of being a true leader, he is the perfect package from engaging in the groundwork to leading his fellow members in his most superior way. 😌Continuing the saga, this guy has mastered the art of convincing anybody to do anything for him using his amazing set of skills (🧈 ahem! )

A pro at storytelling, his action-packed tales would unmistakably make you feel like you’ve watched the latest Marvel movie even before its premiere. 🦹🏻‍♂️ Even the most inconsequential meetup would be boring without him being there to deliver his නැගලා යන speeches, which he promises to keep very short (“but the thing is guys”……🌚)

A role model in balancing everything, this young gentleman is already an entrepreneur running his own business. Being a great chef, his top-notch culinary skills are behind so many visually appealing dishes, 🧑🏽‍🍳so everyone is just looking forward to the uni to re-open so we can try out his fantastic cuisines. 🥗

If you ever messed up while completing anything related to the club and report to him calling immediately, this super cool boss would swiftly reduce your anxiety with his “it’s okay it’s okay කලබල ‌වෙන්නෙපා no issue!” would make you feel like a heavy burden has been lifted off your head right away.

Apart from these, his other expertise is sending voice messages. 🗣️ So, before dropping him a text even amidst the utmost urgency, make sure to check if you’ve got your earphones with you. 🎧 We are pretty confident, you’ll be able to easily publish an audiobook if you collect his distinct voice notes ranging from milliseconds to long minutes. After getting to know this, WhatsApp was prompt enough to introduce the fast playback option for voice notes. 🥲 (The rumour is, some have even celebrated the very moment they got to know this! The parties had gone off for hours 🤓)

Proving that ‘ලොවින් එකෙක් එක් දෙයකට වෙයි සමත’ isn’t applicable at all for phenomenal peeps like him, this multi-talented guy revealed the inborn star personality within him, with his melodious singing 👨🏻‍🎤at the ‘Rota Sonduru Sajje’ most recently. Though the unquenchable curiosity of the gang about his selection of that particular song almost reached Holmes uncle and Dr. Watson, 🕵🏻‍♂️ this venture undeniably made him the STAR of the club overnight. ⭐

Dinura Liyanage

Vice President

Rtr. Dinura Liyanage is a proud product of the Department of Commerce and Financial Management of the Faculty of Commerce and Management Studies.

He is an extrovert, dedicated ludo player, meditation lover and home-cooked soya meat has the power to make his day better 🌝. He is a Football enthusiast and a diehard fan of Lionel Messi ⚽. And also, as matter of fact he is an expert in preparing tea ☕. In brief he likes to do anything except studying, and even the stress of the day before exam cannot change him; pay a visit and he’d probably be watching a web series ❌📖. On a side note, for some reason, he believes he is going to be single till 2026 😉😂.

This vice president is a perfectionist to the point which at times is annoying they say 🤭. If there’s a voice message from Dinura, be ready everyone it's more than that; a podcast most probably 🫢.

With all his extracurricular work he is always busy and an expert in making fun nicknames 😎. Rtr. Dinura Liyanage is a totally dedicated personality who puts in his fullest effort when it comes to work. He is extremely helpful, caring, understanding and friendly 🫱🏻‍🫲🏼.

When taking photos with her, you’ll always have to make sure that she stands on the right (apparently her right side is her most flattering side) 😌. She loves anime and she has a strong desire for piercing. She’s still looking for a place. Maybe you could suggest her a good one! 😃 Most importantly, she loves her little puppy, Leon very much, that she always has a special place for him in her heart 🐶. However, she doesn’t like yellow walls. She says yellow walls look like a hospital 🥹🏨.

They consider his beard that of a pirate 👀! However, he’s not a pirate. He’s a humble and honest guy who is deeply in search of a true love ❤️‍🩹. He has the most dashing personality one could ever have 🧔. He loves travelling with his bike. He adores his bike although it is an antique one - this guy believes in the saying “old is gold” 🛵. He’s fat like “Soora Pappa” 😂but his name given by the university is completely different. It is none other than “Gota”, the nickname of the former president. With that name on him, his colleagues would often crack jokes on him saying of course futile things that the former president used to say.

When it comes to his real personality, he is a very good friend to everyone out there and willingly helps others 🥳. He is a very trustworthy and dutiful person and that is one of the key factors for him to be assigned as the treasurer of the entire club.

This bossy gentleman 🤵‍♂️ can’t hide anything from his sister (he is afraid 😟 of his akka) and thinks he is tall (but he is actually short). There is a lake around his house 🏠 (now for sure you are wondering how lucky 👏 he is that he can go for a swim whenever he wants), but note that he can’t swim! 🏊❌

He is obsessed 🥰 with පොල්සම්බල් and හාල්මැස්සො බැදුම් and will be totally satisfied with these two in his plate 🍛.

Twice a week he is receiving this call 📲 for sure; a video call from Viraj (his best friend who lives in India 🇮🇳 now) just to talk for hours about their sad 😞 single life.

Introducing the Sergeant-At-Arms for the year 2022-23, Rtr. Yasith Dayarathne. We are glad to have you on board and may you continue to be the amazing individual you’ve always been! 🎉🥳

She has a twin 👩🏻‍🤝‍👩🏻 and they both have got a watch ⌚ given to them by each other. They both are identical twins to the extent that sometimes even her friends cannot disguise 🤔 the two from a photo of them together.

Starting off we can introduce her as a kind-hearted and a dignified personality, although she considers herself weird ❣️. She’s not very sociable that she thinks it takes a long time to feel comfortable around people. But she’s really capable of building friendly relationships with everyone and has a huge and warm heart. She absolutely loves animals, 🐰🐹 opening an animal sanctuary is her dream 🌚. She finds spending time with her dogs to be the most relaxing 🦮🐕‍🦺. She is a huge movie and TV series fan too. Being a massive James bond fan, she has wildly watched all 27 movies of the franchise🤯. She loves listening to music as well. She believes it helps calm her down when stressed 🎶.

According to her, books are her passion 📗. Dinithi, who is a unique soul and an avid reader would perfectly suit the club’s editorial and beyond. Rtr.

Thinuri Nanayakkara

Co-Director - Club Service

Rtr. Thinuri Nanayakkara is a proud product of the Department of English, Faculty of Humanities and this young lady 🤵‍♀ has proven herself as a multitasker by balancing her academics and being super busy with many clubs’ activities at the university (you can easily get updated 👊 on what’s going on in almost every club and society of the university by just viewing 👀 her WhatsApp statuses regularly). She was also a star at the Rotaract Champions League last year and will show colours this year as well.

As a very friendly character in nature, do expect long talks (her words flowing like වක්කඩේ කැඩුවා wage 😁) with her whenever you get in touch but also be on good behaviour 🙂 because she is fond of keeping plenty of random clicks 📸 and videos of her friends captured at unexpected moments 🫣.

She is obsessed with eggs 🪺 and is the so-called Goddess of බිත්තර 👸🏻. According to her friends, she even loves to feed එළවළු rotti to others (especially to the opposite gender 🙋🏻‍♂️) and always tries to satisfy others’ waffle cravings 😋.

Whenever a problem comes up, expect 🤗 a voice message from her where she will tell the whole long story 🥱 and share her thoughts on the matter right away.

Being a very enthusiastic individual 🦸🏻‍♀️ who does not get exhausted easily, she is always on the road going somewhere or another (මහ මඟ ජීවිතේ 🚶🏻‍♀) for countless club events; but no matter how important the place is, she is used to yawning 🥱. If you ask where she lives, she would always say that she lives in Kesbawa making others feel ‘ah lagane’ 😌 but you need to travel for ages from Kesbewa to her place (Kesbewa idan hena athulaka inne 🥲).

This highly energetic and dedicated Co-Director of the Club Service Avenue, Rtr. Thinuri Nanayakkara, will give her full commitment and tireless dedication to the club throughout the year! 👊🥳

Rtr. Vishwanee Alahakoon is a proud product of the Department of Mass Communication of the Faculty of Social Science. She is famous as a ‘track head and tube light’ to the core 💡😂. Vishwanee also known as ‘Vish’, also inherits a high number of stickers of herself where each has a flashback story as well 😹🤫. She is also into multi-tasking but breaks down when she gets a frustrated of the workload 🥲💔. But as a matter of fact, this never stops her from accomplishing the job beyond expectations 🥳🎗️.

She has a very interesting story about ‘herself and the Cream soda’ 🍾 which you should definitely hear out 🤭. She also has the ability of overthinking and taking things too seriously 🤯🫢. In brief she is a beautiful combination of kindness and crack ♥️🤪. And she also possesses a super amazing voice for singing and is quite famous as a singer too 🎤🎵.

This innocent personality never fails to give her 100% at any task and is caring, friendly and dedicated 🥰💯. She is a really kindhearted and an emotional person 🥹❤️. She sinks in well with everyone which is kind of her superpower where she gives importance to every single person and never fails to spread her ‘Vishwanee vibe’ among the crowd 🫱🏻‍🫲🏼🎊.

She is so kind at heart, and into proofreading that she even helps her friends with their messages by proofreading them 😌✅. Whoever have come across her would have recognized her as a shy person ☺️.

She never gives up and never fails to accomplish any task given to her with perfection 🎯✨.

A unique characteristic of her is that though she doesn’t open up to everyone, she is a most friendly person one can meet 😍.

Dewmini Abhisheka

Co-Director - Community Service

Rtr. Dewmini Abhisheka is a proud product of the Department of Physical Science of the Faculty of Science. The first thing that comes into mind when her name is invocated is, FASHIION! 😃Obviously she’s a fashionable girl who spends a lot of money buying clothes 🤑. She would often peep into her father’s pockets for that 🥲. Struggle to choose a right attire would be a remarkable struggle in her life 😶‍🌫️. If there’s any special event, you will find her planning about her dress code for weeks. So she actually overthinks bout her outfit. In fact, she is the first who often localizes latest fashion trends. Dewmini has a complicated love life and therefore no relationships yet 😶.

When it comes to her actual personality she can be described as a dedicated, calm and cool person who is very much talented and independent 😇. She would go to the farthest corner of our country all alone ✌️. Her contribution towards club’s work is highly appreciable 🫶. She is also the tallest among the Community Service Avenue directors. She would easily cheer up everyone around her with her witty talks and crazy ways of approaches. Some of her batchmates think that she’s a tube light who questions about something over and over again. They also point out her as a one-day learner who would start studying if her exams are tomorrow 😯. She is good at dancing and she would watch dancing videos on YouTube when she gets some time to herself 💃. Apart from dancing, this fashionable scientist loves music too.

It is obvious that she is interested in many fields and this makes her a multi-disciplined character 🤹‍♀️. Undoubtedly RACUOK will have a significant journey ahead with this wonderfully awesome soul aboard in the most prominent avenue of the club. Rtr. Dewmini Abhisheka will serve the Commusnity Service Avenue marking the RACUOK a legend in the history of the Rotaract 🎯🏵️.

Gayani Jayamanna

Co-Director - Community Service

Rtr. Gayani Jayamanna is a proud product of the Department of Statistics and Computer Science of the Faculty of Humanities. To begin with, Gayani is a total “කිරි පෙරේතයෙක් “ as addressed by her friends because if she doesn’t have her cup of milk in the morning, it would make her feel as if the day never started 🥛😋. This unique individual does not have a specific hobby but is an expert about creams as she tries on different types of cream each month 🪞. During a panic, She can do weird things (there’s a flashback behind this one line!) 😉. She has the habit of ‘not cleaning her table, where books are jumbled up’ which is a inherent quality of hers 📚📑. She does not need a specific time or duration to sleep, in her books there’s no such thing as short naps 😴💤.

She has the many skills hidden such as abilities of handling IT related stuff 💻. She is a funny and kindhearted personality and never hesitates to extend her help whenever possible 🫱🏻‍🫲🏼♥️. Rtr.

Kavishka Kodithuwakuwa being a kind and enthusiastic member will help make the journey of the Community Service Avenue a special one 👩🏻‍🤝‍👩🏼✨.

Dinithi Lorensuhewa

Co-Director - International Service

Rtr. Dinithi Lorensuhewa is a proud product of the Department of English Language Teaching, Faculty of Humanities, who acts as the motherly figure 👩‍👧‍👦 for all the younger ones she encounters and even as the perfect elder sister 🙋🏻‍♀️ one could ask for. She is very caring, friendly and lovely 🥰 to anybody which you could see to yourself by only talking with her for a very few minutes ⏱️.

She is undoubtedly a night owl 🦉 who also tries to transform everyone she works with as night owls too (be prepared 👍 to be awake to experience the dawn of a new day 🌄 if you start a task with this girl).

Do not ❌ expect quick replies from her because she barely answers calls 📵 and responds to texts right away (most of the time missing online and takes around 3-4 business days to reply). Also, we wonder whether she has a secret lover… 👩‍❤️‍👨 (she stays online till late night but apith ekka text karanne nahaa).

We do get panicked 🤯 easily if we misplace our precious stuff (bag 👜 and phone 📱) right? But this cool individual is a very very chill person 😇 who does not get panicked easily and would just say “ah it’s okay, will do this work and check for them later” and will stay extremely calm. So, even with the massive amount of workload 📚 she has, you will see her as a very cool person 😎.

Without a doubt, the International Service Avenue will find Rtr. Dinithi Lorensuhewa as one of the sweetest and easy-going characters they'll ever meet and we’re glad to have you on board! 🤝🥳

Pinsari Jayasundara

Co-Director - International Service

Rtr. Pinsari Jayasundara is a proud product of the Department of Modern Languages of the Faculty of Humanities. Pinsari is usually an early bird who sleeps early, 🌝 while most people in the club are night owls 🦉🦇. So they will have to reserve her time the previous day if they want her to stay awake. Outwardly, she seems like a very silent person. But contrastingly she is very chitty chatty 😍😋. She is the person who always send long voice messages instead of texts. And she would speak unnecessarily louder in those voice messages just to annoy her peers. She loves beach and she still builds up sandcastles 🪨🌊. It’s a real struggle when she starts to pick outfits when she goes on trips. When she likes a song, she keeps humming it until her friends really get tired of that 🤫.

Pinsari is also very good at planning sudden trips. She will watch dramas even if her exams are tomorrow 😮. And she used to have a crush on Dinesh Taranga. She was upset when she knew he has a relationship with Shanudrie 🤥. When it comes to Pinsari’s absolute interests, she is very much fond of cotton candy. We can call it one of her extreme obsessions, which one day made a candy floss seller roam along with her 🤣. However, she is an innocent and a lovely person whom for now loves being single. She is definitely a duty-bound personality 🥰. She often tries to give her perfect output in every task that is assigned to her. Rtr. Pinsari Jayasundara is an outstanding character whose presence makes the RACUOK incredibly great 🧚‍♀️🌻.

Rtr. Sanduni Hansika is a proud product of the Department of Marketing of the Faculty of Commerce and Management Studies.

But don’t judge too soon as she can totally pull of those scary vibes as well and gets into a strict mode when she feels that she isn’t taken into count 🤯🫢. But then again that turns out to be cute too 🤭. Sanduni is well known among the board members as ‘Akshana’s better half’ 🫶🏻🪄. She has the ability to totally go red as a cherry at times when she is being complimented 🍒 and is super caring, that even if you fall asleep during a call, she’ll still be there making sure you have a good and safe sleep 🥹♥️. Talking about her fashion sense, it is so admirable, and she owns the best dresses in her wardrobe collection 💃🏻🤩.

This pretty and cute director is a friendly, supportive and understanding personality whom you can converse about anything at all 🫱🏻‍🫲🏼✨.
