'Heartiest greetings to all on the auspicious occasion of Holi.
Holi is an auspicious festival of our multi-colored cultural heritage. Our culture has a special characteristic that here festivals have not only a religious perspective but also have a social perspective as well. This is the reason that Holi is celebrated in our country in a harmonious and joyful atmosphere cutting across religion, sect, language, region and caste boundaries.
In the present context of Covid – 19, we all should take utmost caution and care. While celebrating, we should take care of our health as well as health and safety of others.
I wish all health and prosperity on this occasion. I pray to the Almighty that may this festival bring happiness, prosperity, peace and joy in everyone's life.”
