The Oxford India Society aims to celebrate India and its diversity. As a society, they strongly believe in the idea of "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" (global oneness). Their activities are centred on promoting Indian culture (music, food, festivals) and contemporary intellectual thought through organizing a range of talks and debates. They regularly run events to support/raise funds for charities, particularly those active in India.
The Oxford University Hindu Society aims to cater for the needs of the Hindu, and by extension Indian, population in Oxford by providing a range of high quality religious, social, and cultural events. The society also tries to inform Hindus and non-Hindus alike of the main teachings and philosophy of Hinduism.
