ICFC Patron's Message
Mrs. Shyamala B. Cowsik, High Commissioner of India

MESSAGE OF GREETINGS FROM HIGH COMMISSIONER SHYAMALA B. COWSIK OF INDIA, AS PATRON OF THE INDIA CANADA FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE OF OTTAWA

It has been a special pleasure and an honour for me to be invited to be a Patron of the India Canada Friendship Circle. Ever since I got to know of this modest and yet very effective and outgoing organization, I have been genuinely and deeply impressed by their dedication to promoting awareness of India as a civilization, of Indian culture and traditions, and in general, of the Indian ethos and the country’s strengths, both civilisational and contemporary, to the Canadian public at large. I am sure that over time, these efforts of the ICFC will bear rich dividends.As a Patron of the ICFC, I would be ready and willing to contribute to their work in any way possible. I see this as a part of our more general mission of strengthening India-Canada ties in every possible area.

Finally, as we are in the middle of the festive season, I send my warm greetings and my good wishes for a happy, healthy and fulfilling New Year 2006 to all members of the ICFC, their families and friends.

( Shyamala B. Cowsik )
