As part of his message, he pointed out the closeness of the intrinsic values of Onam to our constitutional elements. “Equality amongst citizens, significance of collectivism, truthfulness, and justice that’s embedded in our constitution are few to mention”, he told.

He emphasized the relevance of Onam for the entire Malayalee community. It’s a season for coming together. Sharing the festivity of togetherness.

That’s the unique spirit that makes a Malayalee great” - Justice pointed out.
