Statement by the President on Awshtomi

Tonight our friends and family in the Bengali Hindu communities in Bangladesh, West Bengal and around the world will celebrate Maha Awshtomi.

It is the third day of Durga Puja; one of the most poignant dates for the community as it celebrates the victory of the Goddess Shakti over Mahishasur.

May this night fill your life with new joys that surround you and your loved ones with positive vibes, now and forever.

From all of us at UColl to our friends of the faith, Happy Maha Ashtami to you and your family!
