Heart and home

Raymond Kalyan Chandra

Kamloops, Canada

Some people say the heart is where the home is. I beg to differ. Memories of Christmas when I was a little boy in a small village in Fiji still bring tears of joy.

The beautiful hills, the open green fields, the deep blue ocean, the delightful tropical sunshine and above all my childhood friends and family members made every Christmas as merry and memorable as any Christmas I could imagine.

The mountains of Canada are already covered with snow but the people want more snow before Christmas.

They want what they call a white Christmas with fresh snow over everything, everywhere.

They say that the reindeer can pull Santa Claus and his sleigh more easily around the world when there is fresh and deep snow on Christmas Eve.

The 19th Christmas of my life is coming. My home is in snowy Canada but my heart will be in tropical Fiji, the country of my happy childhood.

I wish everyone in Fiji a very Merry Christmas.


Kudos to PM

Thank you Prime Minister for granting Micro and Small Business Grants to 1098 recipients totaling $1.04 million.

The onus is now on both the recipients, to walk the talk and use the grant to build the business or income earning project they mentioned in their application form and us the public, to buy local products and support their business.

Recipients have been given a lifeline and the Government has faith in them to be true and faithful because their success will not only benefit them, but others around them and the economy as a whole.

There is much anticipation over the arrival of the new Fiji Airways Airbus A300- 300 which will arrive in the country at the end of this month.

Aside from this latest addition to the country’s aircraft, some are guessing the name of this aircraft.

What will it be? Only time will tell.

The majority of Fijians the world-over, our Commonwealth group of countries, the United Nations and Fiji’s major trading partners  are keen to see the new flag.

We the Fijian people of our beloved nation are all now looking forward with excitement and great anticipation to the official unveiling of our new national identity, our new flag.

It is similar to the Government ship named “Cagivou” signifies a new wind, winds of change, new democracy, new direction, new Fiji for every Fijian with a new vibrant, inclusive leadership for a prosperous Fiji and its people.

Our new flag will simply show and confirm to the rest of the world that it has taken alot of sacrifice through our journey in uncharted waters for the past 45 years to get our message across, yes, the Republic of Fiji is a Sovereign Nation that has now come of age.

Yes, we will design, charter and plot our own destiny and fortunes in compliance with our world acclaimed 2013 Constitution in partnership with all those nations that our country has committed bilateral agreements with

It would have been a fitting ovation for the new Fiji Airways A330-30 Airbus to be flying our new flag from across Paris after the COP21 World meet with our President, Major-General [Retired] Jioji Konrote leading this much a waited delivery of yet another milestone achievement for our very successful Fijian owned national airline.

Our world champs with Ben Ryan and our globe trotting Fiji 7’s gladiators will be used at all costs to fly and introduce our new Fijian identity throughout the world.

Despite all the Opposition claims and nonsense relating to the change to our new flag, our Government is very determined to implement its agendas. Our flag will soon be flying in our new Parliament, Government House and offices, our Schools, all our Government owned vehicles including those driven by the Opposition leader and in our homes.

Let’s get on with its vote in Parliament.
