On this joyous occasion of Christmas, I extend my heartiest greetings and warm wishes, particularly to the Christian brethren. 


2.      Christmas heralds the birth of Jesus Christ, Son of God who came down to the earth in the form of a human being to redeem mankind.  As the Bible says, “God so loved this world that he gave us his only begotten son”. 


3.      The spirit of Christmas is all about caring, sharing and celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.  The festival brings together people irrespective of caste, creed or religion.  It is an appropriate occasion to foster the values of peace, love and friendship that Jesus Christ professed and practised for the benefit of humanity.  The message of the Lord has relevance in today’s world which is torn apart by many evils and conflicts. For a world that is battling a pandemic this occasion is an ideal time to demonstrate that humanity stands united against all adversities.


4.      On this happy occasion, while urging all devotees to observe Covid protocols during the celebrations, let us all fill our hearts with the spirit of Christmas and pledge to uphold the values of peace, love and friendship for the greater good of our nation.
