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.
Boy do I have a lot to get through in this email! (I'm doing a maths degree, so this really is a lot of writing for me, okay?) A warm welcome to all freshers and new HUMsters, it was lovely to see some of you at the Freshers' Fair and we hope to see you all at our upcoming events! To all those returning to the city of dreaming spires, hope you've settled in comfortably. This term promises to be filled with exciting events such as our annual DIWALI BALL and weekly aartis, both of which provide an opportunity to mingle with your fellow HUMsters. We also have a few messages from the Hindu Chaplain at Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies (OCHS). Do scroll down for all the details!!! If you have any questions, comments or queries about HUMSoc, please don't hesitate to drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S- Remember to like our Facebook page to stay in the loop:
P.P.S- This week's email happens to feature a lot of religious events, but for those who are less religious (or not religious at all) and instead simply want to be part of a community of people from a similar background, then fear not! You are just as welcome at this society and we will be holding plenty of non-religious events, which will be coming soon!
P.P.P.S- Sorry for all the post-scripts. I'm pretty sure they are pointless as I could have just put them all in the main text and at this point they may even be taking up the majority of this email. Oh well, they amuse me so I think I'll keep them :)
This will sadly be the last mailout for this term as the year draws to a close. Looking back on the year, we have enjoyed a fantastic diwali ball, bollywood movie nights, Oxholi 2017, and numerous aartis and enjoyable dinners together. It truly has been an amazing year, and we hope to make sure next year is even better with loads more events! (Please let us know if you have any suggestions; any queries about the society may be sent to me at email@example.com) To those graduating, we wish you all the best of luck with your future endevours and hope that HUM will be a part of the wonderful memories you leave Oxford with.
We are still running our weekly aartis this week on Wednesday at 6:00 pm, so do come along. We will also be running the aarti on the following Wednesday (week 8) at the same time. Make sure you don't miss these last two HumSoc events for this academic year! If you have exams, we wish you the best of luck! See you next year!
Lots of Humpyaar,
-The Humittee :)
PS- How great was that India vs Pakistan match?! Hopefully the Champions Trophy doesn't distract us too much from revision!
Time seems to just fly by, I can't believe its already 6th week! As per usual we'll be running our weekly aartis, so if you feel like taking a break from studies to socialise, do come along! Also, scroll down for details about the weekly Gita Study Group sessions that the OCHS is running.
Hope you guys have a great week!
