On the auspicious occasion of Durga Puja on the 11th October, I extend my heartiest greetings and best wishes to the people of Goa.
Durga Puja is very important festival celebrated in our country with great devotion and enthusiasm. It signifies the triumph of good over evil. The worship of Goddess Durga helps devotees to remove fear, negative thoughts and attain peace. The divine Goddess resides in all, in the form of Universal Mother, in the form of positive energy, in the form of intelligence and in the form of true wealth, and we all bow our heads in reverence to her for nine days.
While celebrating the festival this year, I urge all people to follow health and safety protocols. May the celebrations of Durga Puja this year bring renewed peace, prosperity and happiness to one and all, and strengthen the prevailing social and cultural harmony of our beautiful State.
