Merry Christmas Everyone!

I’m extremely happy to be able to wish everyone a Merry Merry Christmas. I hope you’re having a great time with your friends and family, and I wish you joy, peace and prosperity for this coming year and the time ahead.

I want to share something that happened many many years ago while I was still in school, and I was reminded of that incident when I saw this tweet from Liz Danzico a few days ago.




What a wonderful message, and how timely it is.

I’ve heard a variation of this myself many many years ago when I think I must still be in primary school. A teacher asked me if my mom was a Christian from Kerala, and my dad a Hindu from Benaras, then what festivals did I celebrate?

And then without hesitating, she answered the question herself, “everything, you celebrate everything, of course.”

For all the things that we have got wrong, we have got many important things right, if there is a country more diverse in the world, I don’t know of it – and in this great diverse country where we speak more languages than the whole of Europe – we celebrate everything and we believe in everyone.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    It is painful to see politicians trying to divide the country based on caste and faith.
    Yes, we have got many important things right. It is good to see people of different faiths participating in festivities of one faith.
