the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, I extend my warmest greetings and best wishes to all residents of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. May Lord Ganesha bless our Islands with prosperity, happiness, and harmony.

I am especially moved to see the vigour and passion of our youths, who have magnificently set up numerous pandals across our Islands. The enthusiasm, joy, and gaiety with which you all have come together to celebrate this festival are commendable. It is a testament to the vibrant culture and unity of our Islands.

May this Ganesh Chaturthi be an embodiment of peace, unity, and communal harmony.

On this occasion I pray to Lord Ganesha to shower his choicest blessings upon the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and its wonderful people. Let us continue to foster our rich traditions and celebrate the diverse cultures that enrich our Islands.
