Mr. Speaker, during the month of September, Hindus from all over the world are celebrating Navratri, a nine day festival. This is considered to be a cleansing period for the body and soul.
The ultimate goal of this festival is to attain virtues over vices, and become victorious in the battle of good over evil. This festival is now very visible in Canada as it has been all across India and the rest of the word. This is another example of cultural diversity that makes our country strong.
On behalf of my family and my constituents of Brampton Centre, I wish all of those who are celebrating a happy Navratri.
Let us continue to make the world a place of one family.
