HUM aims to cater for the needs of the Hindu, and by extension Indian, population in Oxford by providing a range of religious, social, and cultural events. Our standing goal is to ensure that all events are of the highest quality, and tailored to the needs of our members. HUM also tries to educate Hindus and non-Hindus alike in the main teachings and philosophy of Hinduism.

We are pleased to be welcoming Party Spirit Photo Booth (https://www.partyspiritphotobooth.com) at the Ball, who are sure to provide wonderful prints to remember the night!
All of us on HUMsoc Committee hope that you've all been keeping well during what's been a challenging and strange term. We have a talk coming up this Wednesday being given by our very own Secretary Aditya, and we've also opened up applications for next year's committee! Please do consider applying, and contact anyone currently on Committee (or messaage the Facebook page) if you have any questions about the various roles.
We wish a very warm welcome to all the freshers joining us this year - and of course welcome back to our returning students.
Despite the lockdown measures, we're working hard to make sure you can still meet other Desis in Oxford! So make sure to sign up for our Freshers Dinner at Chutneys TOMORROW EVENING!
Of course, we'll be having more events through term - including socially distanced and virtual ones - so keep checking Facebook and our emails for more info. As usual the OCHS (Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies) online Gita class will be running every Tuesday! Unfortunately we won't be able to run any regular in person aartis this term (but we're planning something special instead!)
We hope you've all had a manageable Trinity term, and that you've found our Speaker Series enjoyable these past few weeks. This Friday will see us hosting our final guest, Jay Lakhani. Mr Lakhani is a distinguished speaker on spiritual humanism and Hinduism, as well as the relationship between science and religion. Having contributed to the discourse surrounding Hinduism on big media platforms including the BBC and ITV, it promises to be an interesting and insightful talk. Gita classes are also continuing as usual.
