England, Feb 25, 2017: Hindus of Chelmsford are really passionate about Hinduism as a religion and have come together to form Chelmsford Hindu Society in Chelmsford, England. They believe firmly in the values and creeds of Hindu religion, and their objective is to establish a sacred shrine in the vicinity so that it is approachable by the Hindu residents. It is observed that there are no Temples in the area and Hindus residing in the area find it difficult to travel up to 22 miles to visit one, hence the need to establish a temple.

Temples are a place of sanctity which houses positive energies. It sends out the cadence of ragas and mantras synchronized harmoniously. Chelmsford Hindu Society believes that omnipresence of God is not felt until the spirituality is not awakened, and for that reason, followers come to temples in search of tranquility. Promoting Hindu ethos, cultural and spirituality is one of the key concerns for these people.

The Hindu society has been reportedly holding events at Little Waltham Memorial Hall. The events included prayers, recitations, children activities and community lunch. The society is also seeking volunteer donations, and making an effort to register with Charity Commission for England and Wales.

Rajan Zed, the President of Universal Society of Hinduism, cited that it was impertinent to pass on Hindu spirituality, concepts and traditions to the coming generations amidst a myriad of distractions in the consumerist society and hoped that the temple would help in inculcating a holy and spiritual sense in people. Zed further stressed by saying that, we all should focus on driving an urge to create inner peace within oneself and work towards attaining moksha (freedom of soul) by the virtue of karma.

Another belief of Hinduism preaches that people come to the temple to unite with the almighty in the truest sense.

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
