Indian High Commissioner Arun Kumar Sahu has said despite 2020 being a challenging year, Christmas should “remind us of our resilience to gather ourselves and move on with renewed hope and work towards a better and brighter future.”
In a release, he extended holiday greetings to Trinidad and Tobago and said 2020 was a year “humanity struggled to survive” a global pandemic.
“Some of us lost our near and dear ones, and some witnessed our close ones fight back. We are still passing through considerable uncertainty and anxiety.
“As we celebrate this occasion in a muted manner, I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and extend my best wishes for happiness, peace and prosperity for the new year 2021.”
He said it is the season for spreading love, kindness and compassion.
