LONDON May 14: A group of freethinking rationalists within the UK Malayalee community have set up 'Essense UK', a group with the mission to promote freethinking and raise scientific awareness by conducting seminars and public events.
 
The primary objective of Essense UK is to foster freethinking and scientific temper. Essense UK proposes people to base their opinions and actions on reason and knowledge rather than on religious belief or emotional response.
 
Essense UK has announced their first programme 'Renaissance 2018' which will be a seminar and Question & Answer (Q&A) session with award winning author and orator Ravichandran C. 
 
Ravichandran C is an Assistant Professor at University College, Thiruvananthapuram, who is a well known freethinker, writer, orator and cyber activist in Kerala. His priority  areas are science and rationalism.
 
He delivers lectures on the true facets of spirituality which according to him is corrupted, fraudulent and exploitative to the core. Ravichandran calls upon all the progressive forces in Kerala to unite to thwart the looming threat of caused by the snowballing theocratization of the body politic.
 
Ravichandran goes about talking about the fast spreading darkness in the society of Kerala due to increasing rate of religiosity and anti-science campaigns.
 
With hundreds of religious groups within each religion springing up across the length and breadth of the UK it will be interesting to see how the community will repond to such an intiative.
