Celebrating Durgashtami Aarti with the Medway Hindu Community Association


It was an enormous privilege to visit the Medway Hindu Community Association as they celebrated Durgashtami Aarti at

Fort Pitt Grammar School.

Greeted warmly by members from all over Medway and Kent I and my wife had the difficult task of choosing the winners of the Aarti competition. Over 250 members gave me a warm and polite welcome when I addressed them as follows :


Jai Ambee

Tam Ne Durgastthmi Na



After the competition we were treated to some superb food and hospitality, I am photographed below during a quiet period of the ceremony trying out some of the super (and hot!) cuisine on offer.
