London Zone Garba 2013

NHSF Westminster President

London Zone Garba was not just an event. It was a creation. For Jaimal Patel, NHSF (UK) London Zone Coordinator, it was important to unite the entire zone to celebrate Navratri and to create an unforgettable night. It did exactly this; 12 London Zone Universities united for an incredible night of garba and dandiya.

Behind the scenes, a small Garba committee were proudly watching their plans fall into place, and I was lucky enough to be part of this family.

In the Summer I received a phone call from Jaimal explaining his idea of unity. I replied with enthusiasm, not only was it a chance to get to know other NHSF university societies, but it also gave me an opportunity to do garba again! Soon enough, a WhatsApp group was created with endless ideas and opinions put forward from all 13 of us. It was a task that only Harshini Patel, Rajen Jotangia and Jaimal could manage! Messages turned into productive conference calls to finalise venues, food, timetables, tasks and logistics of the night.

Tickets for the event were gold dust with Presidents of all Chapters overwhelmed with phone calls regarding the event. With a capacity of 600 people, the event was truly exclusive! Read More

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.
