President APJ Abdul Kalam on Sunday greeted the countrymen on the eve of the New Year and Idu'l Zuha and exhorted them to spread happiness everywhere by helping the needy.
"On the occasion of the New Year, I extend my greetings and best wishes to all my people in India and abroad," he said in his message in New Delhi.
He asked fellow citizens to spread happiness everywhere by sharing knowledge, removing pain and giving part of one's rightful earning.
