The celebration of a new beginning is indeed a special time when families come together. At this time in the year, Malaysians from the Indian community are getting ready to celebrate this in their own special way. Malaysia’s Tamil and Malayali communities will mark “Putthandu” and “Vishu” respectively. Meanwhile, the Malaysian Sikh community celebrates “Vaisakhi”, an auspicious day marking the birth of the “Khalsa”.
As many in the Indian community usher in the New Year, families throughout the country will surely reflect on their lives and be grateful for all that they are blessed with. Many will also resolve to work harder and improve their lives and the lives of those closest to them. In this determination to achieve progress, the Government will continue to play a role as a real partner of the Indian community. Together, we will deliver results that directly improve the quality of life of Malaysian Indians.
