Diwali Ignites Fresh Hopes – Diwali Message Honourable Moses Nagamootoo Prime Minister and First Vice President Of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana


Office of the Prime Minister, Guyana,Saturday, October 29, 2016

The Government of Guyana extends Diwali greetings to all Guyanese in particular our Hindu brothers and sisters.  This Festival of Lights has great religious as well as social significance.

Diwali signifies the emergence from the darkness of ignorance to the light of wisdom.  It also symbolizes the triumph of good over evil, hope over negativism and gloom,

Today, as we continue to emerge from the clutches of despair and division, we can see flickers of the new light of hope as we lay the foundations for a clean and green Guyana.

Diwali gives us an opportunity to bury our differences, and to embrace as one Guyanese fraternity.  It is the sincere hope of the Government that Diwali 2016 will serve to rekindle the fire in our heart for a cohesive society in which all will share in the good life.  It must imbue us with a positive resolve to love life, to love Guyana.

Shub Diwali!
