MESSAGE

 

On the auspicious  occasion of  Sonam Lochhar and Losar,  Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim, Shri Ganga Prasad has extended warm greetings and good wishes to the people of Sikkim.

          In his message Hon’ble Governor said, “the celebration of  Sonam Lochhar  by our Tamang brethren manifests  yet another colour of  rich Sikkimese cultural diversity. It reaffirms our faith in almighty as the bestower of all our triumphs and   accomplishments  as we congregate to  pray and offer fresh harvests to our deity.

            Similarly, Losar, the Tibetan New Year, symbolises hope and aspirations for a new beginning. The festival of Losar is an occasion to reflect on our deeds and achievements in the year gone by and renew our pledge to work for wellbeing of all in the new year.

           May the festivals of Sonam Lochhar and Losar strengthen bond of brotherhood among all faiths, community and sects and nourish the peace, prosperity and harmony prevailing among all Sikkimese.”
