Celebrated the Sinhala Tamil New Year Eve with family relatives and neighbours as per Hela custom today (14) morning at Carlton house.
Milk saving festival was held to mark the new year eve with the patronage of my dear wife Shiranthi Rajapaksha in the voice of Raban Sural.
Later, I also fulfilled the rituals of the New Year table with the auspicious auspicious auspicious Namal Rajapaksha, Yoshitha Rajapaksha, and others joined together for this event. It is a great pleasure to celebrate the Sinhalese New Year according to our tradition by giving first place to our dignity.
I hope you all are also enjoying the joy of celebrating the new year customs in your homes with the children of Diva.
Wishing you all a happy new year filled with happiness, peace and health!
Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksha
