Dynamism, vibrancy and unity are three words which best describe the National Hindu Students’ Forum (UK) 20th Anniversary celebrations ‘Arise Arjuna’ on Saturday 19th November at the JFS School, Kenton. Over the past 20 years, NHSF(UK) has grown to represent 15,000 students across 35 universities across the country and organises over 1200 events a year under the NHSF (UK) banner to make it the largest Hindu Students movement in Europe.

The stage was set – Sunday 21st February 2010 would see 27 Hindu societies from across the land come together for entertainment that would give the ongoing Winter Olympics in Vancouver a run for its money. Little did we know that we would also try and rival the games in Canada for the level of snow!

The National Hindu Students Forum (UK) are taking a leaping initiative at their next annual conference entitled The Hindu Times: Be The News You Wish To See to be held on Saturday 21st November at the City University, London. The conference is to tackle the misconceptions of the Hindu faith that are common to the wider world and to teach the future of our community the opportunities to act. The conference will be split up into spirituality, the Hindu community (samaj) and politics. The workshops on spirituality are to educate students on whether or not the Ramayana and Mahabharata are still relevant or just myths based on fiction. The Hindu community workshops aim to explore caste discrimination, the inequality of men and women and whether or not our Hindu dharma is becoming too bollywoodised. The political workshops will speak out directly on the most current political issues such as the underrepresentation of Hindus in British politics, the rise of the BNP and its affect on the Hindu Community and the human rights and civil rights that should be invested to Hindus around the world.
