We went to Gita Bhavan Mandir in Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, for the Welcome Evening organised by Hindu Society. It consisted of a traditional Hindu Arati (offering) and singing devotional songs, followed by a delicious dinner.

Sep 26: Introduction to the Society

We had a brief introduction to the Society, an icebreaker game (getting to know each other), consisting of introducing each other in pairs to everyone else, some singing (A traditional humourous Russian folk song (along with cartoon) sung by Oxana, and a Christian hymn Ubi Caritas Et Amor, Ubi Caritas Deus Ubi Est prepared by James). Then we asked all present members to introduce their own faith. Finally we had tea and coffee.
