Be inspired for the interest of our people- PPP Diwali message
(Press Release) As our nation celebrates the festival of Deepavali, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this
opportunity to extend greetings to all Guyanese, especially the Hindu community.
This festival which has gone beyond religious borders is one of the most anticipated events here in our
country and has become a major component of the Guyanese cultural mosaic.
The significance of Deepavali, known as the “Festival of Lights”, is pertinent for the upliftment of all
mankind through its universal message of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and good over
The light of the Diyas which will shine throughout our country, symbolises a sense of renewal as light is
allowed to dominate and darkness and hatred are banished.
Our Party urges that this message be heeded so that darkness from the prevailing despondency,
ignorance and hatred can be repelled in the interest of all humanity knowing that knowledge will defeat
ignorance and compassion will triumph over despair. Deepavali offers an opportune reminder for all to
do their part to achieve that victory.
The influence of Deepavali over the years to forge better relationships and to bring our people together
has grown tremendously. This is continually evident as Guyanese from all spheres of society participate
in the various events including the grand spectacle of the motorcades and the beauty of the flickering Diyas.
The PPP, therefore, hopes that the message of Deepavali will inspire all to work in the best interest of all
Guyanese so that the light of prosperity will manifest itself in their lives.
Shubh Deepavali to All!
People’s Progressive Party
