Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has always been people's favorite. And not just for the Canadians. One of the reasons for that is because of how he welcomes diversity and different cultures along with his inclusive manner of functioning.

As South Indians everywhere celebrate Pongal (the harvest festival) this week, Trudeau today, donned a veshti, and celebrated the Tamil festival with fellow Tamil Canadians.

Trudeau said he "has a great time" at the festivities. It also happens to be 'Tamil Heritage Month' in Canada. He also shared pictures of the celebrations on Twitter. And captioned the tweet, "Iniya Thai Pongal Nalvazhthukkal!", which means, "Sweet Pongal Greetings."
