Hey guys,

sorry for the email overload...the cricket match will start at 2pm tomorrow...a little later than planned...most probably to allow everyone some recovery time from tonight's all-night celebrations.

See you all tomorrow. Come along and cheer along your favourite cricket team...HUM saath saath hain...

But the good news is it is only POSTPONED UNTIL NEXT TERM
and in the mean time, to keep you occupied, we bring you details of vac storage space and an opportunity for some out-of-the-ordinary voluntary work in India

HUM week 5 additional information regarding tomorrow's religious event

E-mail sent by Seema Kavi, Tuesday, 16th February 2010 @ 4:16pm


Three important details that you might want/need......

(1) The title of tomorrow evening's talk is 'How many Hinduisms?'

(2) The location is now in the Pusey Room in Keble College NOT the Roy Griffiths Room... Basically, just turn up at Keble and we'll direct you to the right place.

(3) Those who come to aarti are not obliged to stay for the talk, and vice versa; those who wish to come to the talk but not aarti are also welcome. Tomorrow's talk (and aarti) is aimed at anyone interested in Hinduism, not just Hindus.

(Sorry to send two emails in one day.... HUMoverload. Sorry as well that some of you have received half a message/a message in a different language/colour; the group spaces website currently thinks HUM is a hacker and I am a virus...).

HUM...week 5 update!
