“Lohri, the harvest festival, celebrated across the country, brings the promise of growth, prosperity and fosters a spirit of sharing in our lives. It is also a joyous occasion to salute the indomitable spirit of our farmers and to recognise their invaluable contribution to nation-building. Sankranti indicates the beginning of an auspicious period of the year,” the LG said. “May these festivals bring prosperity, happiness, and joy for all.”
