Lent 2013

18 January 2013

My sincerest apologies for the delay in updating the website; 4th year physics can really get in the way of ones extra-cirricular commitments and social life—who in their right mind would want actual tripos exams before Lent term begins?! Now that they're done I'll be updating the site with the many things Lent term promises to offer. We'll let you know more at our first event celebrating Pongal this saturday but look out for things including explore sessions and talks by key speakers, volunteering opportunities to give back to your community, our annual charity show: Mastana before our final handover event - Holi.

This term is just as jam packed as ever so keep your eyes peeled and see you all soon!

See you in the new year

6 December 2012

From our weekly Karmic Talkies and Yoga Classes to the annual favourites inlcuding Raas Garba and Diwali Dinner, this term has been a HUGE success! Michaelmas 2012 has been jam packed with more CUHCS events than you could possibly make time for but the committee alongside our members have learned a huge deal, enjoyed some enlightening talks, some scruptious food and a whirlwind of dance and music. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for next term's events and please let us know if you want anything else out of your society.

Happy Navratri

1 October 2012

Celebrate the festival of Navratri with the CUHCS community this year on Saturday 27 October. Navratri is a vibrant festival which lasts for 9 nights and focuses on the worship of the female goddesses of the Hindu religion. Traditional celebrations range from the Gujurati folk dance popular in the Western states of India- Garba and Dandiya Raas, to the act of fasting and carrying out intricate rituals in various poojas.

CUHCSs Raas Leela promises to be one of the highlights of the academic year so make sure you don't miss out. Get your tickets from any member of the committee ASAP to ensure your entrance to this ever-popular event.


Yoga class banned from church hall

1 October 2012

A priest has banned "spritual yoga" classes from a Church Hall claiming that it isn't compatible with the Catholic faith. The instructor was outraged as she considers her classes as an exercise to explore ones inner self. Yoga is not a religous ritual or have any such connotations but can we really take Hinduism out of yoga?


Feel free to discuss this either by tweeting us @cuhcs or discussing this furhter on our facebook group. Whatever your view, come along to our weekly yoga classes running every Thursday
