India is famously known to be an amalgamation of several different traditions and customs. ‘Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India’ (Mark Twain).
The LSESU India Society, being one of the largest and most active cultural societies on campus, aims to provide you with a taste of the different flavours of this great country. The society has something for everyone - whether you’re an Indian who wants to find a home away from home or you’re someone who wants to experience, understand and embrace a culture that you have no prior knowledge of.
In order to truly represent the vast culture and customs in India, we ensure that our members get to experience a multitude of events. From our famous Bollywood nights (Diwali Dhamaka and Bollywood Crush), to the much respected LSESU India Forum (LIF) conference, the society definitely has something that will grab your attention.
LIF is the UK’s largest student-led India centric conference where students get to interact with eminent personalities from various professions. We have previously hosted speakers such as Karan Johar, Sunil Gavaskar and Jyotiraditya Scindia.
It is often thought that the beauty of a culture can be seen through its festivals; India is known to be the land of a myriad of colourful festivals. The LSESU India Society ensures that its members get to experience some of these wonderful and world-renowned festivals.
We also believe that there is a lot to learn from others - to put this into practice, we ensure that we have a number of collaborations with other societies to provide our members with new experiences and different perspectives.
All in all, the society will provide you with an opportunity to meet a number of amazing people from around the globe and help you to form bonds that will last a lifetime. It is going to be an extremely fun, enriching and unforgettable experience to be a part of our family. We can assure you that you will enjoy every bit of the journey!
