Fiji Sun’s ‘Letter of the Week’ winner for between July 8 and 16, Arien Vikash Kumar, has been writing to the newspaper primarily to raise public concerns.

The 35-year-old works in the administrative department of the Ministry of Education in Lautoka.

His winning letter was titled ‘Govt Fleet Services’. Mr Kumar’s first letter was about traffic problems in Nadi, and then contributed on issues of Tropical Cyclone Winston.

“I was very fortunate that I was chosen as a winner. I usually write about things that are affecting us, things that need to be addressed. That’s how I pick on what topic I want to write about, if it’s a general public concern. So if we sit and listen and get information from the media then we can be able to say what’s on our mind as well.”

He lives in Malolo, Nadi.

“I urge those writing to the column to keep writing. As long as we are writing on good topics, and we get this attention out to the public and other relevant authorities.”

He said the topics must have content and value.

“This is more of an encouragement to me receiving this prize, I will try to contribute more on topics that concerns us.

“This is a very good idea, to let the people know of what is happening around and I thank the Fiji Sun.”
