On the auspicious occasion of Maghe Sankranti, Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim, Shri Shriniwas Patil and the First Lady Smt. Rajanidevi Patil extend warm greetings and good wishes to the people of Sikkim.

Hon’ble Governor said, “Maghe Sankranti marks the arrival of spring season which symbolises reawakening of hope and progress. The occasion also possess immense cultural and spiritual significance in the Indian Culture as it also marks the beginning of ‘Uttarayana’ in the lunar calendar, bringing auspicious time for social and religious celebrations. In Sikkim, Makar Sankranti, popularly called Maghe Sankranti, always has been the occasion to celebrate our vibrant ethnic and cultural diversity.

May the festival usher a new era of prosperity, good health and happiness in the lives of my fellow Sikkimese.”
