I, on the joyous occasion of Durga Puja, convey my warm greetings and good wishes to all my fellow Islanders. May Durga Puja characterize the victory of truth over untruth, good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. May Goddess Durga guide us on to the path of righteousness, truth and wisdom.  Let us pray to the Universal Mother Durga to instill in us a spirit of brotherhood and love for all. May this festival strengthen the moral foundations of our Islands and turn us away from all that divides and destroys.

I wish lots of happiness, prosperity, good health and fortune to all the Islanders on this auspicious puja.
