Giggling Apology

Rajnesh Kumar, Nadi

I would like to apologise to the mid week morning host of Radio Sargam for my comments about giggling.

I have copped so much criticism over the air by both the host and co-host that I thought it would be wise to apologise.

I thought that my article would be viewed positively by the host but it was otherwise.

Finally, I wish if the Radio Sargam can carry on the legacy and the standard set by Mr Diwakar; I have never heard him giggling over the air.



Great personality

Shiu Kumar, Ba

A sad loss for one of our nation’s greatest orator, Mr Semi Koroi.

His prowess in public speaking and art of speech delivery will ever remain in our hearts. I, for one am deeply touched and grieved with his untimely demise. His contributions in journalism and as a fine media personality speaks volumes and will forever be cherished in our hearts. From a very young age I admired his qualities, especially his skills in the presentations of programmes over the air and more recently the programme ‘Back In Time‘ on FBC TV.

You were a ‘Man of the People’, a sophisticated person of our beloved nation. You will be remembered in our prayers. Rest in peace.



Nadi becoming a city!

Herleen Emily, Nadi  

The hype of Nadi becoming a city is crucial yet, unsatisfactory.

A city should comprise an international stadium, street lights, proper public facilities, a modernised and spacious bus stand constructed in a flood free zone.

If Nadi has to become a city, a four-way lane road has to be constructed from Nadi Town via the Nadi Back Road.

It is essential that the Nadi Town Council and the Government of the day look at measures to upgrade to the “city-like” facilities.

More environmental inspection and upgrade of Nadi Town needs to be enforced to meet the city demands.

If people’s demands are not met to city-like standards, it is of no use to declare Nadi a city yet.

And if it is declared so, the flood prone areas in Nadi should be exempted to pay city bills.


Tyre uses

Gay Maxwell, Sigatoka  

With regards to the millions of waste tyres every year­ ­– please do not burn them, as this will only add to the pollution we are supposed to be leading the world in trying to stop.

It would definitely not be setting a good example!

These are just a few of the uses that come to mind – for recycling old tyres:

Building walls for erosion prevention

Fencing for farms and compounds

Garden and landscaping- Planting of tree seedlings and farm plots.

Planting seeds in to germinate

Children’s swings and climbing frames

Building shelters and houses for the animals to shelter them from adverse weather conditions

Decorating your garden or compound

Planting of colourful flowers in your garden

There is so much that we throw away as rubbish that can be recycled for another cost-saving use.

I welcome any enquiries from anyone who would like advice on this. Just call me on 9182210. I am happy to help where I can.
