The National Hindu Students’ Forum (UK) has become renowned nationally for the Bhakti events which its students organise. Being in its sixth year, the Central Zone bhakti event attracts hundreds of people including students and the wider Hindu community from the Midlands and beyond.

The National Hindu Students’ Forum (NHSF)UK)) has always taught values and principles to protect, preserve, practice and promote Hindu Dharma. This is achieved by national and local events where NHSF (UK) universities strive to uphold their Dharma whilst they are at University. A prime example of this is the Central Zone Bhakti event, where 13 NHSF (UK) universities unite with the samaj to hold a spiritual event for students and the local community to enjoy.
In its firth year running, NHSF (UK) Central Zone offer another priceless opportunity to reach a spiritual platform with this year’s 12 hour Ram Dhun to honour and receive blessings from Hanuman Ji, often considered the most devout devotee of Ram Bhagwan.

On Wednesday 24th October at the Radha Swami Rasilia Satsung Centre in Birmingham; 13 Universities across the midlands gathered on the auspicious day of Dussera to celebrate a night of Navratri like no other!!
Navratri, also referred to as Nine Nights, is one of the great Hindu festivals signifying the triumph of good over evil. The tenth day is known as Dussera, meaning remover of ten which refers to Lord Rama’s victory over the ten-headed demon King Ravan in the battle of good vs evil, therefore the day of dussera is seen as an extremely auspicious day.

The National Hindu Students Forum (NHSF) UK ethos has always been to protect, preserve, practise and promote Hindu Dharma; this has been established through national events such as annual conferences to weekly chapter events such as Arti and chintan sessions. However, for the flame of Hindu Dharma to be carried forward, we as the Hindu samaj need to progress by sustaining and supporting what the Hindu students do.
The 20th anniversary of NHSF (UK), also known as Arise Arjuna has taught Hindu’s across the UK that in every single one of us there is an Arjuna, we have to arise and awake the Arjuna within us. The year-long celebration has seen various projects and events from the national mela and garba to personal initiatives such as doing daily practises of reading scriptures or doing true sewa regularly.

The 25th February 2011 will always hold a special place in the hearts of south zone committee members and chapters a like, for it was the first time since Subrang Garba 2007 that the zone gathered for a spiritual event. The event took four months of hard work, perseverance and dedication from both south zone committee members and other National Hindu Student Forum (NHSF) UK national committee members in order to ensure the success of the first ever south zone Ram Dhun. It was a personal objective of mine to ensure that in our 20th anniversary year, a Dhun would be held for our chapters in the south and the wider community. North and Central Zones had set the bench mark for such events and I wanted to ensure that south zone entered with a bang!
