On the festive occasion of Dussehra/Vijayadashmi on 15th October, 2021, I convey my heartiest greetings and warm wishes to the people of Goa.


2.      Dussehra/Vijayadashmi marks the conclusion of 9 days celebrations of Navratri festival.  It is a very significant festival celebrated across the length and breadth of the country without religion, creed or caste.  Though each region has a different spiritual connotation of this festival the underlying spirit of victory of the good over evil remains the same.  The celebration of such festivals has played a remarkable role to integrate the people and maintain the unity and integrity of the country.


3.      This year while celebrating this joyous festival, I urge all devotees to adhere to health and safety protocols.


4.      May the celebration of Dussehra this year bring greater peace, joy and prosperity to the people of Goa.
