Clubs & Societies Directory
CUHCS is a thriving, dynamic society offering a wonderful opportunity for social interaction whilst providing the chance to sample and learn a little about the rich heritage and culture of Hinduism.
Although the religion is one of the oldest in the world, we believe that it has a continuing relevance for contemporary issues. Hinduism is open and diverse and CUHCS aims to reflect this both in our activities and membership. Our wide and varied range of events throughout the year include discussion forums, our very popular Diwali Dinner with traditional, home-made Indian food, poojas and garden parties. There is also the fun of the Raas Garba and the festival of Holi and of course the massive, tremendously successful Asian Cultural Arts Show of music, dance and drama, "Mastana".
We raise large amounts of money for charity, both in the UK and overseas; previous beneficiaries have included the Gujarat Earthquake Appeal, the Royal Brompton Hospital, London and Mind UK. This is part of our commitment to Sewa, the concept of selfless service. We aim to launch a 'selfless service' programme in the near future as well, to go out and directly serve the wider community.
CUHCS broadens horizons, bringing people together through enjoyable events; advancing our cultural, religious, social and intellectual development whilst at the same time, helping to make a difference in people's lives while at university. The diversity of events means that whatever your background or interest there will be something for you.
