It was founded in 2005 and its current Chairperson is Prinal Nathwani, who took over from the previous Chairperson, Pratik Dattani, in October 2013.[1] The CHN is focussed on building closer relationships between professionals working in the City of London of a Hindu background.[2]

History[edit]

CHN's first major event was held by the then Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, for the British Hindu community, at City Hall in London.[3]

Since then, the CHN has organised networking events, talks on Hindu philosophy and spirituality, a mentoring scheme, charity and volunteering events for Hindu professionals, and taken part in community and government liaison on behalf of the Hindu community. Many of its events have been in conjunction with the accountancy and consulting firms and investment banks in London, alongside other Hindu community partners, such as Chinmaya Mission UK, and charities such as Odanadi, Women in Need, Joshua Playing Project and London Community Transport.

The current management committee of CHN comprises Prinal Nathwani (Chairperson), Neel Patani (Vice Chairperson), Shefali Davda and Dipti Vyas.
