NHSF (UK) Kingston Treasurer
The development of NHSF (UK) Kingston started like a river, from a small trickle of water which has now swelled into a stream. In 2011, a few students took the opportunity to create Kingston’s first ever Hindu society with the aim to unite Hindu students on campus. Having the opportunity to meet new people and understand more about my faith, I attended the first Hindu society meeting, which was a success.
Unfortunately the committee did not organise anymore events and it looked as though the society had not achieved as expected. Luckily, I remained in contact with a few members who had also attended the first meeting, and together, we decided to organise our own meeting to decide what should happen with the Kingston Hindu society. Topics and issues we discussed at the time included; how the Hindu Society can make a difference to its members; what the purpose of the society is, how can it reach out to its member and what events can the future committee organise to get members involved? We knew many students of our generation would benefit from knowing and understanding about Hindu Dharma. This gave us the drive to put together a new committee to save Kingston’s Hindu society.

NHSF Portsmouth committee member
The University of Portsmouth Hindu Society are known for having some incredible events and this year our Diwali show lit up Portsmouth just like every year.
Raising money for the British Heart Foundation and Manav Sadhna, the committee organised a spectacular Mohabbatein style play with a twist and a wide range of stalls for all our members to get involved in. Taking great pride with the local support, we collaborated with the Akash Indian Restaurant which served a mouth watering vegetarian meal.
The play itself, although not a conventional Diwali story, symbolised the story of love and a triumph of good over evil. With Oscar award winning acting by our whole committee, accompanied by some brilliant dancing and singing; the event started with a bang.
