Thai Pongal festival is a day for Hindus in Sri Lanka who march towards development in the golden rays of the sun, to join in celebration with those of their faith worldwide, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said issuing a Thai Pongal message.


The message is as follows:

“Thai Pongal, which is celebrated in many countries of the world is a festival that highlights the core values of their culture and civilization.

“The celebration is said to have commenced around 1,000 years ago during the regime of Chola. It is a sacred day when gratitude is expressed during the first harvest season of the year. The aim of the celebration is to express gratitude to everyone for a good harvest. Not only gods but also animals such as cows are shown gratitude’.

“As such, it is a day for Hindus in Sri Lanka who march towards development in the golden rays of the sun, to join in celebration with those of their faith worldwide.

"There is a new political culture in the country with equity and justice. We all have to be determined to create a better society.”
