Family situation

Dhirendra Prasad

Lautoka

 

It was great learning while reading the article FS dated 23/12/15 titled “Study Reveal exposure to family violence makes children aggressive”.

So true but on the rise. Life experiences reveal that there are more children without parents because of the reason that they are “divorced” or separated.

In our desire to enjoy life selfishly we are creating a miserable life for the same product of our love  (so called) who have to be attended to by the others in their life.

If we cannot commit ourselves to fulfill the needs of our offspring then we have no right to produce any. More such children are in the making as party time engagements are visible all around.

So sad to see children without the love of their parents yet trying to get on in their lives through whatever they can grasp.

God bless these children. Shame on such parents. Probably it is time now to follow up on such people who do not get their offsprings in the picture before separation. Relevant authorities, any plans?

She is more than capable of talking the walk and walking the talk. Walk the work or talk the talk.

Rosy Akbar, in her capacity as Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, had shown that she is proactive in serving those who come under her care.

Recently she had to paidar (walk) through the highlands of the Wainimala in order to deliver some goods to the women of Narokorokoyawa Village.

They called her a brave woman for taking that  challenging route to their destination. Ms Akbar responded by saying that her visit was her best Christmas gift. Local women, children and the underprivileged are fortunate to be served by someone who knows how to serve.

Now that members of SODELPA had taken the necessary step to solve their differences, hopefully by next year with other parties in the mix as Opposition MPs. They will stand united and be stronger in their stance and work ethics.

And in turn it will enable the Government of the day to perform to its very best and also to lighten their task.

Party politics is done and over with after election. Now it’s either the Government or the Opposition.

So it will be helpful to deal with problems collectively as the opposing team instead of party lines like we had been witnessing lately.

Since the Government of the day came into power, one of their major policy was to do away with colonialism’s racist divide and rule system of running the show.

Yet we still hear remarks by those who should uphold that principle. Allowing that monster to rear its ugly head from now and then.

Hopefully, the media on their part should be foremost and vocal in referring to the Govt as the Govt and the Opposition as such.

As we all should be aware of by now that the ‘don’t bring the past to be present’ adage is a necessity for forward future endeavours.

As the words of a song says: “… yesterday is dead and gone and tomorrow is to come…”

Oh nearly forgot. Thanks Allen for representing us as chief guest for the launching of the e-edition of the Fiji Times.

Hopefully you will relax your grog consumption as a New Year resolution. For who dares can and to all my fellow contributors to this column let’s take it to another level next year. Seasons greeting’s to all. Moce, Namaste. Bye bye 2015.

 

Season’s greetings

It’s once again that time of the year when friends, families, loved ones and others will gather to celebrate Christmas. It is a joyous time to move away from the busy work of lives and enjoy the magic of Christmas.

While some will be enjoying the moment by merry making, others will be decorating trees, opening presents, and eating food and singing Christmas music.

However it is not only celebration about friends and family. It is also an opportune time to perform acts of kindness like some people and organisations have done.

Christmas is also about giving and helping the vulnerable, needy, poor and disadvantaged ones in our society.

I also believe we need to enjoy responsibly. We need to take heed of stern warnings from authorities. With tragic events unfolding in past weeks we would not like to lose more of our loved ones.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
