To all those around the world who share common Nepali cultural and linguistic traditions,
I send best wishes for a happy 2066. I hope that in this New Year, Nepal will continue on the path to peace and prosperity.

As you welcome the New Year, I salute the spirit of tolerance and shared heritage that brings Nepalis together regardless of their differences on this day to celebrate and exchange good wishes.

All New Year celebrations reflect the hope of new beginnings. As the world faces the greatest economic challenges in generations, we all must stand together to embrace the New Year’s promise of rebirth and renewal.

Naya Barshako Suba-Kamana!



PRN: 2009/321
