Apr 13, Colombo: The Sinhala and Tamil New Year provides the ideal setting to deepen relationships with each other and share the rich cultural heritage, Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said in his New Year message.

He said this New Year will be celebrated with the traditional customs to convey their importance to the next generation.

The full text of Prime Minister's message:

The dawn of spring brings the flourish of nature and nourishes the human spirit as we meditate on the ideas of cooperation, forgiveness and empathy for all life.

Sinhala and Tamil New Year is the foremost national festivity celebrated across the country in the splendour of spring. It provides the ideal setting to deepen relationships with each other and share our rich cultural heritage.

This New Year we will celebrate with our traditional customs to convey their importance to the next generation. This will ensure future generations are proud of our traditions and our nation.
