New Year should further unite people in heart and mind

Apr 14, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
This is the first New Year being celebrated in harmony and contentment since the Motherland was unified, said President Mahinda Rajapaksa in a Sinhala and Hindu New Year message. The President also said: "It is my belief that these New Year festivities should seek to further unite our people in heart and mind. The New Year celebrations by Sinhalese and Tamils alike are most appropriate in recognizing the kinship among us. This is the continuance of strong cultural traditions that strengthen the bonds among the people of our land. The Government has carried out all necessary measures to bring the joy and meaning of the New Year closer to the people. To this end we have sought to bring prosperity to the nation through agricultural development and encouraging an ethical way of life.   www.dailynews.lk/2010/04/13/news02.asp
