“The Story of Hinduism and the Diaspora” on July 25th 2020 @ 9 AM PST / Noon EST

Dear Wellwisher,

The Hindu diaspora spans the globe from Trinidad, Guyana, Suriname, Fiji, Mauritius, to Africa.Unlike the more recent immigration to North America and the United Kingdom, the Hindu migrants of the early 19th century were brought as indentured laborers and faced extreme hardship.In this webinar you will hear from a variety of voices that will illustrate the challenges and opportunities Hindus have faced throughout their history in the diaspora.As Hindus who have lived for five or more generations outside of India, they have valuable insights for the more recent immigrants into North America.
In this webinar, Pandita Indrani Rampersad and Dr. Sherry-Ann Singh from Trinidad in the Caribbean, Professor Anand Singh from South Africa, Dr. Arvind Bissessur from Mauritius, and Shri Salesh Kumar from Fiji will explore the history of the Hindu diaspora from multiple perspectives.

Hindu University of America (HUA) is a growing online university built to help Hindus in America learn and connect with our authentic history, culture, and traditions.Our faculty are dedicated, brilliant scholars who recognize the need for a university in the West that truthfully, steadfastly, and academically represents the Hindu faith.

We hope you will be able to join us on July 25th at 9 am PST / Noon EST for the Webinar.

Warm Regards
