Pongal would not be the same this year in our region in the wake of the
greatest natural disaster in living memory. We have all realized we were
never as safe as we thought we were. Nature has proved to be a great
leveler; I know we can come out this quagmire if we work as a united people.
I am confident and expect us to come out of this crisis better than ever
before. Hindus today celebrate the harvest festival an event which creates
new hopes and aspirations, let us join our Hindu brethren and pray for
prosperity and happiness.
