Welcome to this month’s Month In Review!
The month of November proved to be a relatively slow month for RotaractArts as our undergraduates were busy preparing for other projects outside the world of Rotaract (their end semester examinations, of course!). Nevertheless, here’s our monthly round up of the important projects that came into fruition during the month of November.
Enigma Phase I
The Editorial’s first project ‘Enigma’, a project that started in October which focused on shedding light upon unsolved mysteries across the globe, continued well into November. The project was chaired by Rtr. Yeshani Fernando and Rtr. Anjalee Wanduragala. The remaining 6 articles were published during the first few weeks before finally ending on the 16th of November. The articles published during the month of November for Enigma are as follows,
- Jack the Ripper
- Area 51
- Jeanette DePalma
- Bermuda Triangle
- The Sodder Children
- The Illuminati
As established in our previous Month in Review, each article explored the respective mystery, its background and its public perception to date. The project, in its entirety, was launched with the intention of instilling interest within the readers and the writers of the Editorial regarding mysteries that remain unsolved to date. A subsequent, yet equally important, objective was the improvement of writing and research skills within the members of the Editorial who provided their articles for the project.
The project was successful in garnering attention and praise from enthusiastic readers who had their interests piqued through the articles. Since each article focused on mysteries that have not been solved to date, the project managed to cater to the curiosity of the readers as well. As for the writers, the project provided a platform for them to pursue incidents that they found intriguing, given the fact that it was their set of recommendations that made the final list of article topics.
Forspoken Phase I
The Editorial soon after the conclusion of ‘Enigma’ started work on their second project: Forspoken. Phase I of Forspoken kicked off on the 18th of November and saw the publication of six articles that focused on mysterious landmarks that belong to multiple civilizations across the world. It was chaired by the Editorial’s very own Rtr. Nirmali Amarasekara. The main objective of the project was to create awareness and touch upon the beautiful and unique man-made structures around the world and delve deep into the histories behind them. Another objective was to provide a platform for the Editorial members to express, and pursue, topics they were interested in. In addition to this, researching, pursuing external sources, and compiling the gathered information into an interesting article were core skills which we wanted to inculcate within the novice Editorial writers.
The six landmarks that Forspoken explored were;
- The Great Pyramid of Giza
- Easter Island
- Taj Mahal
- Angkor Wat
- The Great Wall of China
- Ellora Caves
- ‘Athwal’ by Community Service
- ‘Academic Writing 101’ by Professional Development
- ‘Kuppiya ’21’ by International Service
- ‘Forspoken Phase I’ by The Editorial (Registered under Club Service)
- ‘Stop The Spread – Back to School (Donation Drive)’ by Community Service
- ‘Sustainability Summit 2022’ by Professional Development
– The Editorial
