A Wedding that will Inspire Many of Us to Overcome Personal Challenges
This was a special wedding – a unique and inspiring union between two people.
Sabnam Nisha wed Neel Roop yesterday in an event that has captured the hearts and imagination of many people. It was one of the highest trending issues on social media yesterday.
Sabnam, 32, was born with a physical disability, that confined her to a wheelchair and soon she will be a mother.
Her husband, Neel, with no physical disabilities, showed that love conquers all.
It overcomes disabilities and obstacles and breaks down barriers. Soon she will be a mother.
For the new couple it may offer new challenges but they are ready for them.
It’s a dream come true for Shabnam. She wants to prove people wrong, people who thought she could not marry and become a mother.
She is an inspiration to physically disabled and able people. She has shown that despite disabilities, people can still live a normal and happy life.
“I never thought this day would come and I encourage others out there living with a disability to always believe in their dreams and to keep moving forward,” she says.
Neel showed from the beginning of their journey together that he was committed to looking after her because he loves her.
He brought her from Lautoka to Suva, put her at the Samabula Senior Citizens Home, until he found a permanent home for them.
Now that he has found one, the wedding was a formality.
This wedding sets the tone for Valentine’s Day which is just three days away.
We congratulate the newly-wed and wish them all the best for the future.
Better protection for our troops
It was long overdue.
The equipping of our peacekeeping force to increase its capability is welcome and positive move.
The purchase of refurbished Australian Bushmaster will help our troops serving in the Golan Heights under the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force.
This armed personnel carriers will mean that our troops will be better protected from hostile forces.
