Avurudu Celebrations 2014

  • Start Date:June 19, 2014
  • End Date:June 19, 2014

Avurudu celebrations have become a tradition here at MCOMS with students from all communities and nationalities and faculty also looking forward to the big event. The event serves to bring a little bit of Sri Lankan colour into the ethnically diverse painting that is MCOMS. But even though it is an endemic Sri Lankan event, it is common to find Indians, Nepalese and Maldivians alike, helping out with the organisation of it, which truly brings out the spirit of Avurudu. This year's celebration, like the preceding years, consisted of a "Games day" and a "Cultural Day". On this day (12/04/2014) the students had organised various traditional Avurudu events in which the faculty and students from all nationalities actively took part. Among these were Kotta Pora (pillow fight), Kana Mutti Bindeema (Bursting the Clay Pot), Aliyata Eha Thabeema (Pinning the eye on the Elephant), Guessing the seeds in the Papaya, Andayata Yoghurt Kaveema (Feeding Yoghurt to a Blindfolded Person), Wheelbarrow Races, Balancing the Lime Fruit and many more. It was a fun filled occasion which served its purpose of bringing the Avurudu fun to MCOMS. The cultural day (14/04/2014) is the crowning moment of the Avurudu celebrations at MCOMS. The whole MCOMS family was invited to witness the fruits of the students’ labour. This included the Dean, Hospital Director, Director of Academics, Director of Basic Sciences, all heads of departments, faculty, post-graduate and undergraduate students and others. The students had put nothing but their best efforts into making the event a success. Paintings lightened up the campus premises with a rainbow of colours telling stories of Sri Lanka. Dramas, Talk shows, Kandyan Dances and demonstrations of Sri Lankan traditions kept the participants well entertained and informed. The students of all communities were enveloped by a feeling of belonging at the end of the celebrations, which after all, is what Avurudu is all about.
