On the auspicious occasion of Durga Puja (Dussera), Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim, Shri Shriniwas Patil and the First Lady Smt. Rajanidevi Patil extend warm greetings to the people of Sikkim.

Hon’ble Governor said, “the festival of Dasain,as we call in Sikkim, has a cultural significance besides its religious belief and rituals. Dasain in the Himalayan culture is an important annual occasion for the family members and relatives to visit each other’s places and exchange goodwill and emotions. With the blessings of Divine Mother effort is made to strengthen the values associated with family and neighbourhood.

Our unwavering belief since ancient times that the good always prevails over evil has been the founding principle for all our collective efforts aimed at the welfare and benefit of entire community. The festival of Durga Puja epitomises this belief. The Navaratra,the nine days of special worship and veneration of Goddess Durga, bears the underlying philosophy and culture of protecting and providing rightful place to our mothers and sisters.

As we congregate to pray to Goddess Durga, let us seek to foster love, harmony and peace among all sentient beings. May Goddess Durga bestow health, happiness and prosperity to my fellow Sikkimese.”

PRO to Governor
