NPC continued its tradition of celebrating days that connect us all by marking Tamil and Sinhala New Year, focusing on the themes of the universe, the sun and unity.

The coinciding of the sun’s transition between the zodiac signs of Pisces and Aries symbolises new beginnings and the eternal bond between nature and humanity.

Connecting on days and celebrations regardless of ethnicity and culture reminds us about the colourful cultural tapestry that connects all Sri Lankans. By lighting the hearth and sharing of milk rice in the office, NPC combines celebration with a deeper understanding for the one another as we work towards unity and reconciliation between ethnic groups in the country.
