On the auspicious occasion of ‘Indrajatra’, the Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim Shri Shriniwas Patil and First Lady Smt. Rajanidevi Patil extend warm greetings to the people of Sikkim.

Hon’ble Governor said, “the festival of Indrajatra, though associated with our Newar brethren is dedicated to Indra,the king of heaven and the deity of rain and harvest as per Hindu belief is worshipped by our agrarian community since time immemorial. Kumari Puja,an integral traditional ritual associated with the festival signifies reverence and respect given to the girl child as deity of home and society. Given the priority of the government to protect and educate girl child, let all girl child in our home and society get all the respect and care they deserve. Let the festival of Indrajatra and Kumari Puja add value to our commitment of protecting girl child and enrich our vibrant cultural diversity.

May this festival be an occasion to celebrate Sikkim’s cross cultural unity contributing towards peace, harmony and brotherhood among all sections of our society.”

PRO to Governor
