Dear Parents, children and Well – wishers,

On 14th November, this year we celebrate two great occasions. One is Diwali – the festival of lights and another is children’s day – a celebration of innocence and openness. On Diwali we celebrate the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. The people of Ayodhya expressed their joy and elation by lighting the lamps. Lord Ram is the epitome of obedience, humility, love and sacrifice. We very often speak of ‘Ram Rajya’, what then is ‘Ram Rajya’ for us during this time of unrest, disloyalty, disrespect, clashes between races, religions and ethinicities?

In the Bible, Jesus rebukes his disciples for not allowing the little children to come to him, he tells them, "Let the little children come to me for, to such belongs the Kingdom of heaven." 'Kingdom of heaven' is peace, love, fellowship, brotherhood and rightly so, the Kingdom of heaven is where the children are, for they are innocent, pure, open and they go beyond the boundaries of race, colour and caste and this really is ‘Ram Rajya’. So this Diwali and Children’s day, let us pray and hope that may the ‘Kingdom of God’ or ‘Ram Rajya’ of peace, tranquility, brotherhood, justice and love be realized in our hearts, our families, our neighbourhood , our city and our country.

This children's day as we wish and pray for our children, let us instill in them, the values of respect for every human person, creation and self, obedience to elders, love and humility, purity of heart and mind, sincerity and truth in word and action, patience and understanding for the poor and marginalized of the society.

"Wish you all a very happy Diwali and to the little Angels 'Happy Children's Day'".

God bless you.
