The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig. (Dr.) B. D. Mishra (Retd.) extended his heartiest greetings and best wishes to the people of the State on the festive occasion of Holi. He expressed his hope that the festivity will promote harmony and goodwill in the society.
In his message, the Governor said that India being a land of diversity, Holi is celebrated differently in different parts of the country. Holi symbolizes the victory of good over evil. It signifies the supernatural protection against the mundane transgressions of values. Holi also marks the advent of spring season and people celebrate it joyously with the splash of colours, thus it is called the ‘Festival of Colours’. In substance, this festival stands for the start of a ‘new life’ of optimism, tolerance, and wisdom, he said.
The Governor wished that this year’s festival of colours strengthen the social bondings and usher in new hope for a brighter future for all. He also wished that the spirit of Holi inspires all to pursue our cherished goals of harmony, and amity.
On this auspicious occasion, I also appeal to our people to observe all necessary precautions against the COVID-19 Pandemic, which is still raising its ugly head in many parts of our Country, the Governor said in his message.
