Our warm wishes on the happy occasion of Vijayadashmi. This festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Meeting relatives and friends, conducting various rituals, delicious sweets and snacks are sure to relax anyone, but we hope that it does not make you forget to participate in the Japanese Language Speech Contest on the 8th of November, 2014. As we are celebrating the 10th edition of this popular contest, we expect it to be even more bigger and better. Kindly note that the last date for sending your participation confirmation is 10th October, after which no entries will be accepted. You are requested to send the draft of your speech to firstname.lastname@example.org.
