2012 in Retrospect

Akila Fernando, an undergraduate of the Department of Electrical engineering of the University of Moratuwa, is the outgoing Chief Operations Officer (COO) of MoraSpirit. Having successfully led MoraSpirit to its current status, Akila fondly recollects his time at MoraSpirit. Being at the verge of completing his university career, Akila took some time to speak to us about his experience as the COO.

There are bigger things in life worth a fight!

It was the month of December in year 1998. I first tasted the bitter history of intra university clashes within University of Moratuwa as a fresher. We were in the first year then and faced an 8 months long closure. We came out of it after a long wait, but as far as I know losers were both parties. We were a lot who entered university the quickest during that era but came out of it as one of the last. As a community we wasted 8 months of our life for nothing. We were 8 months delayed in the job market and the competitive edge went to the students from other universities.
