UKHCA Kali Puja and Diwali celebrations Sunday 23rd October 2022

UK Hindu Cultural Association (UKHCA) celebrated Kali puja and Diwali on Sunday 23rd October 2022 at the Swanley Town Hall with ardour and piousness. The celebration brought the entire community together to spread and enjoy the true spirit of the festival by sharing love, respect, and togetherness. 

The puja rituals were performed with austerity and complete devotion by offering everyone an equal opportunity to worship Goddess Kali. The magnificent decoration made of diyas, rangoli and flowers helped the event to retain its spiritual essence throughout the evening. It also witnessed the spectacular fireworks conducted by the children under their parental supervision to symbolize the “victory of light over darkness”. The puja prasad was distributed in a most organized manner among the devotees. The delicious dinner served at the end gave it a perfect finish.
The active participation, enthusiasm and the team spirit of the volunteers made the event impeccable.

On behalf of UKHCA, we would like to convey our heartfelt gratitude to all the patrons, volunteers, and the participants to make this event a great success and will look forward to having your continuous support and cooperation in our upcoming events as well.

10th Sharodiya Durga Puja
UKHCA proudly celebrated its 10th Sharodiya Durga Puja at Swanley Town Hall between 1st and 5th October 2022.
At the UK Hindu Cultural Association (UKHCA), we celebrated our 10th Sharodiya Durga Puja this year. At the puja this year, we have seen a confluence of old and new, modern and traditional and we are proud to have brought our Bengali and Indian community together, whilst also supporting local businesses.
 
Over the last few days, we have seen wonderful camaraderie amongst friends, old and new, everyone joining hands to celebrate Ma Durga’s visit to our mortal earth. Our puja rituals were performed by our priests with devotion, joy and pride, all at the same time. They not only led the puja with enthusiasm and fervour, but also brought our community to celebrate our wonderful puja together. Our volunteer community were actively involved in all aspects of the puja, making it a resounding success! Every day, we served our delicious Puja ‘prasad’ and ‘bhog’ twice a day, making the joy of the Puja even more fulfilling. Our local advertisers and businesses put up their stalls and banners, offering delectable food and gorgeous lifestyle items for sale, bringing a mini-shopping bonanza to the local community. On Shashti and Saptami, we saw lovely performances from our community members and on Bijoya Dashami, our celebrations culminated with a magnificent performance from Sayani Palit followed by our Bijoya Sammilani dinner.
 
Our heartfelt ‘thank you’ to our dear volunteers, patrons, donors and advertisers. Thank you for your support, your presence, your participation and your generous donations. We are overwhelmed with your love.
