FNU Plants Trees As  Modi Remembrance

The Fiji National University (FNU) yesterday had three sandalwood trees planted to commemorate India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit a week ago.

FNU Vice-Chancellor, Dr Ganesh Chand said Mr Modi’s visit to the university was a historic event.
The trees were planted by India’s High Commissioner to Fiji, Gitesh Sharma, Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, Yogesh Karan and Dr Chand.

Mr Sharma said the Indian government was grateful for the university’s effort in recognising Mr Modi’s visit.

“I think FNU is an institution that we will hear more about. Institutions are like trees. When they grow we provide them the right environment and intellectual nourishment. Prime Minister Modi’s visit to this university is symbolic because this is Fiji’s national university,” Mr Sharma said.

“He came here and had time to meet young people and young thinkers who will think about new ways to be a better society. Through planting the trees, it will forever remind us of that moment with only a tree and my wish is that FNU will grow from strength to strength.”

Mr Karan said the tree planting was very symbolic.

“Today (yesterday) we have marked his visit by planting the trees and as the trees grow, we will see and remember his historic visit to Fiji and his touring the Fiji National University,” Mr Karan said.
Mr Modi visited Fiji last Wednesday.
