Surrey meets India

An insight into life at Surrey from two current Indian students.

Stone Henge

Hi all,

Hope you are doing good. Last Saturday was my first visit to a historical monument in UK and it was Stonehenge. It is one of the pre-historic monument and was built in 3000B.C. And the surprising thing about it is, there is no particular reason why it was built. There were excavations recently to know how and why it was built. All the valuables were displayed in the exhibition which was at the entrance. Some of them were like Facial reconstruction of a man who lived there when the Stonehenge was built. I watched in many TV shows that facial reconstruction is possible but when I saw it there, I was speechless. As we exited the exhibition we could see the old homes which were also reconstructed recently. It showed how the people in the past lived their and also some the tools that they used to hunt animals like knifes, bows and arrows. Just beside the exhibition there was artificially made which resembles just like one of the stones used in constructing it. There was a rope tied to it and visitors were allowed to pull it. I tried pulling and it said 99 more needed, this showed me how weak I’m and also the purpose of it was to show how hard it would have been for the people in 3000 B.C to bring it there and place it in such a position that, a person standing in the circle of the Stonehenge and watching the sunrise on June 21st “Summer solstice” is nothing short of magical. The only disappointing thing when we visited, it was very cold with heavy wind, we were not able to stand their and admire the beauty for more than 3omins. I would definitely recommend visiting Stonehenge if you are in UK even for a short trip. The best time visit is on the Summer and winter solstice. Will see you next week with more updates on my Cardiff and Italy trip.

Indian Students Association

Being an Indian student in the University, I find Indian associations and Indian society events very exciting. Living miles away from India, and yet being part of a group of people who share the same culture and tradition as you is amazing. Indian Students Association (ISA) is a part of one of the students union […]

Second Semester

Phew! It is already the second semester and my time here at the university is almost coming to an end. I cannot believe that one semester has already passed, because it doesn’t feel so.
