On repetition of an event, the aim in mind is always set out to make it as successful, if not better, than the first. With the commitment of over 20 universities spread across London and South zone our 2nd Krishna Kirtan event did just this!
In December 2013 the Krishna Kirtan committee was established, with the conviction that all members would do their up-most best in making it a success which was most certainly reflected in the event itself. With regular contact via WhatsApp, Skype and various other means of communication; the committee were regularly discussing all aspects of the event- from catering and sponsors to advertisement and learning.

Hindu Awareness Week wasn’t just a week full of events but a week where Hindu Dharma came alive through Bhakti, Gyan and Sewa. It was a week where chapters were proud to be Hindu and express their faith with others who may not fully understand the practices and principles of Hindu Dharma. History was made in NHSF (UK) London and South Zones as Hindu Awareness Week took place from the 27th – 31st January. NHSF (UK) Chapters across both zones put on fantastic events to learn Hindu Dharma and to inspire students. I was fortunate to be part of some of the amazing events that took place, from talks on Hindu Dharma by Keshav Bhatt to Yoga sessions by Chinmaya Mission.

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!
