Fundraising event has been organized by the Dil Diyan Gallan Surrey to raise awareness about the Mental Health especially in the Vancouver Indian Community. It is considered to be a stigma to talk about Mental Health in the South Asian Community. The event organizers are raising awareness to break the stigma.
The goal of “Dil Diyan Gallan‘ is to change how we can view and take care of our mental health so that we see it on a spectrum of our overall well-being. On this spectrum is our physical health, spiritual health, relational health, and mental health.
Please come and support the cause on January 20, 2023 at Reflections Banquet Hall located at 6638 152A St, Surrey at 6:30pm. For tickets and other inquiries please email [email protected]

Honorable Mr. Chandra Arya, who initiated a private member bill to designate November as a Hindu Heritage Month in Canada was speaking at an event in Surrey on December 26, 2022 where he addressed the Hindu Community of Metro Vancouver.
The event was organized by North American Hindus Association (NAHA) to discuss issues related to Hindus in Canada, Canada-India Relations, Indo-Pacific Strategies, & the declaration of November as a Hindu Heritage Month in Canada.
Audience asked him various questions regarding issues related to Hindus in Canada and he gave all the appropriate answers. In my personal opinion Mr Arya is working for the community as a proud Hindu keeping his identity above & beyond politics.

They have been running these fundraisers for the last several years with dedication, passion, honesty, and integrity.
In a historic milestone, Canada declared November to be the Hindu Heritage Month in Canada at a federal level. Starting November 1, 2022 every year this month will be celebrated as Hindu Heritage Month.
Hindu Community in Vancouver and elsewhere in Canada thanked MP Chandra for bringing the motion about Hindu Heritage Month and also thanked Government of Canada for the honor & the recognition. Metro Vancouver is home to a large and vibrant Hindu community which has made important contributions across a variety of sectors. Hindutva is the third most popular religion in Canada. Diwali, one of the most significant Hindu festivals, falls in either November or October each year.
Hindu Community in Vancouver and other parts of Canada will continue to organize various events to celebrate this day. You will see various events to celebrate Hindu Heritage Month in Vancouver and other parts of Canada starting November 2023.
Happy Hindu Heritage Month Canada!
It is an opportunity for others to learn more about Hindu culture, respect each other more and make a vibrant multicultural & peaceful society in the process.
