Another incredible year has passed for NHSF (UK) and on reflection I am filled with a sense of pride with what has been achieved, both nationally and locally. Students and young professionals are setting examples for what can be achieved by serving the community at large. These achievements were reflected upon at this year’s NHSF (UK) Annual General Meeting (AGM).
On Saturday 23rd March, both National and Chapter Committees, well-wishers and alumni members braved the unseasonal wintery conditions and assembled at Birmingham City University for NHSF (UK)’s AGM. The AGM enabled us to review the previous year’s activities and look ahead to build upon this year’s successes.
The event organised on the 9th and 10th March 2013 is very interesting and inspiring.
All Indic faith traditions (Buddhists, Hindus, Jains and Sikhs) will have various items of music, dance and other artistic presentations. Such a programme will be of immense interest to all members of the family.

Religion and sports are seen to be strong influences in inspiring young individuals in society to be successful. This has been seen by the London 2012 Olympic Games organisers acknowledging the need of a multi-faith centre for inclusion and diversity. This need is being met on Saturday 16th February 2013 at Tipton Sports Academy, where the National Hindu Students Forum (NHSF) UK is holding their ninth National Annual Sports Competition.
Over 800 students will be competing in 94 teams from over 43 Universities across the country in some of the Hindu cultures most ancient, exciting and adrenaline-pumped sports. The NHSF (UK) National Annual Sports Competition celebrates sport in Britain today, showcasing popular modern sports such as netball, badminton and football whilst also keeping alive traditional Indian sports, including Kho Kho and Kabaddi.

Curiosity, unity and a ‘want to know’ mindset is what best describes the National Hindu Students’ Forum (UK) annual conference ‘BIG HINDU QUESTIONS’ held on Saturday 24th November at University of Wolverhampton in Walsall.
Hindu Dharma is the one of the oldest living religions and hence sometimes a complex subject to assimilate. Over the decades, young Hindus have questioned various aspects of Hinduism and mostly the answer they have been receiving is, ‘because that’s the way it is’.
