Harvest festival 2017

    Pongal is a popular festival in India and for Indians throughout the world. Agreed.

With the monsoon failing and reluctance in water sharing between peoples the fields are scorched and with no yield. The farmers are more than disappointed and given the reality some have gone to the extreme pathetic measure. There is overwhelming sadness. Those who were the cause of our joy are now in inconsolable sadness. In solidarity we need to share and ease their pain.

Same time we are bound to thank the Lord for His benevolence and pray for restoration of order with our human co- operation. May his mercy pour down as rain, make the crops be green with hope and yield abundant harvest that liberally satisfies the need of all. May prosperity and joy abound.


Let our fields continue to feed and the farmers rejoice at their yield. This is our wish and earnest prayer.
