Vatukarasa unity

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Fijians living in racial harmony in this beautiful village of Vatukarasa along the Coral Coast, is something that amazes me whenever I travel to the west.

Though I have little detail as to how this concept was initiated, I would be very interested if Fiji Sun could run a story on this village.

This is the vision of the current Government whereby all Fijians must learn to trust and respect each other and live in harmony. We all have the power to make a difference. Unfortunately for some it’s all about themselves.

We live in a world of intolerance nevertherless Vatukarasa Village gives us hope.

You the people of Vatukarasa should be proud because when racial harmony flourishes the cross of our Christ is honoured.

Tolerance, please

Taitusi Sokiveta, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

If the Hindus in Fiji can tolerate our drunkenness, loud noises over crowded in towns and cities.

Shopping until midnight on Christmas Eve and loud fireworks and Kaila loud shouting on New Year’s Eve midnight.

New Year’s celebration with lots of party dances with loud speaker music blasting all night and more than half of the nation drunk.

Then we should be able to tolerate Hindus celebrating Diwali with loud noises and loud fireworks.

Remember. United we stand one nation under God.

Enhancing human ability

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

A marijuana high can enhance core human mental abilities.

It can help you to focus, to remember, to see new patterns, to imagine, to be creative, to introspect, to empathically understand others, and to come to deep insights.

If you don’t find this amazing you have lost your sense of wonder. Which, by the way, is something a high can bring back, too.

Say NO to Marijuana

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

Forgive me if I am not being wise in speaking against Wise Muavono’s opinion regarding Marijuana: The misunderstood drug.

Marijuana is currently illegal in Fiji but we have seen its effects on Fijians who seem to be in another world while living among us and some admitted to St Giles Hospital.

The Police have been having a hard time trying to uproot and destroy all the known marijuana farms in Fiji.

Imagine the enthusiasm and zeal among young people and current growers when marijuana is legalised.

Like yaqona or kava, the more we plant, the more we consume.

Similarly, with more people opting to plant marijuana because of its quick and big monetary returns, Fijians will be free to smoke marijuana just like the ordinary cigarette.

The pride in ‘Fiji being the way the world should be’ would be changed to ‘Fiji the Marijuana haven of the South Pacific’.

Once Fiji opens the door to the legalising of marijuana, we would follow other nations in allowing hard drugs, with the smuggling in of other illegal ones.

A friend told me years ago that sharing a joint with his girlfriend before having sex was just a mind blowing experience.

Right now, we Fijians are facing a big issue in the ill treatment of our women and girls and grandparents have been charged for sexually raping and molesting their grandchildren.

Will legalising marijuana decrease or increase our current woes and problems?

I am not a prophet but knowing the iTaukei mentality, the free for all use of marijuana for all Fijians will only lead our people and nation to self-destruct.
