The Ministry of Agriculture joins all Guyanese and especially the Hindu community in observing Diwali 2018. Diwali- the Festival of Light, symbolizes the triumph of good over evil and provides the opportunity for us as a nation to ensure that the light of peace, tolerance, understanding and compromise, lighten our paths and provides guidance in all our undertakings.
The Diwali celebration is one that today transcends all our communities and is supported nationally. The symbol of the lighted diyas is not only a sight to behold, but also imparts the message of spiritual enlightenment.
On this auspicious festival of light may the glow of joy, prosperity and happiness illuminate our lives.
The Ministry of Agriculture wishes the entire Hindu community and, by extension, all Guyanese a happy and enjoyable Diwali.
