Last month saw the arrival of a new member of staff at the OCHS. Well known to many at the Centre, Gateen Patel is working as an intern for a six-month period. Gateen has been friends with the Centre since 2001 when he arrived in Oxford to study at Oxford Brookes University. Since then he has gone on to complete an MA at King’s College, London, and spent time traveling in India.

Gateen will mainly be working with Lal Krishna, the Centre’s Development Administrator. His roles at the Centre will include development of the OCHS website, assisting in the running of the Continuing Education Department online courses, and the implementation of a new contact database.
The OCHS regularly offer internships to young people who have a keen interest in the study of Hinduism and wish to benefit from the experience of working and living in Oxford. Previous interns at the centre have included Krsnaa Fitch who went on to study at the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City and has starred in various television and film productions. Amrita Ford, daughter of Alfred Ford - long-time supporter of the Centre - went on to study Medicine at the University of Florida after completing her internship.
