Bati legacy

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

We have seen the spine chilling war cries from New Zealand, Tonga and Samoa during their opening Rugby League World Cup games.

Fijians would also want the Fijian Bati to put in their own version of the Cibi to counter the fierce challenge from the above three nations.

But the decision just to huddle and give praise to God the Creator through a hymn in the dialect is just glorious and heart moving to watch.

We are all hoping that the Bati will make it to the 2017 RLWC Grand Final but if they do not, they will be remembered for singing a hymn of praise to God, instead of the usual war cry or challenge.

God Bless you Fiji Bati.

Life without water

Dewan Chand, Suva

There can be no life without water. It is a vital resource and is absolutely essential for our sustenance and survival.

Many of us take piped water for granted and many a time abuse it.

Little do we realise that despite all our grandiose developments there are still some places in Fiji without piped and clean water supply.

According to media reports the village of Navatu in Bua has just received piped water for the first time.

This was after years of suffering and helpless pleadings to various Governments. The current Government has made their dream come true by providing piped water sourced from bore holes.

What a delight on the faces of these isolated villagers.

This is certainly an early Christmas for them.

Please do spare a thought for the disadvantaged in our society.

NFP’s Parmod Chand’s Rhetoric

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

The Labasa businessman Parmod Chand did not qualify himself as a legitimate National Federation Party winning candidate from our 2014 National Election.

His attack on the Republic of Fiji Military Forces shows he is ungrateful to the many sacrifices by our loyal men and women in green who stood by their oath and captured the rebels from the events of 2000 to bring back normalcy, stability, safety and security to our beloved nation during which time Parmod Chand travelled freely in and out of the country with his families whilst the majority of Indo-Fijians descent suffered from looting, burning of their properties and the loss of their livelihood, some innocent lives were lost and many families were displaced and separated, but may I ask, where was Parmod in all these were happening?

My only regret about this particular National Federation Party member and now Member of Parliament was that I hoped he had the guts to say the same in the year 2000 some 17 years back and I quote what he said, “I do not fear the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, Government, no man or Dictator, but that he only feared God” as reported in the other newspaper Sunday 29th Oct.

Many of us who have sons’, brothers and sisters, uncles past and present have proudly served our country through the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, the very institution that has brought about stability in what we all Fijians are enjoying today.

Please Parmod, kindly apologise to the Republic of Fiji Military Forces for your unwarranted and unnecessary outburst.

Rourou and Lots of Rourou

Taitusi Sokiveta , Phoenix Arizona U S A

It’s true what the breast cancer survivor said when she comes to Fiji and eats lots of Rourou and Fiji fresh fruits.

It really detoxes your body from unhealthy things.

I eat Rourou on a daily basis when I come to Fiji for a whole month.

When I get back, American doctors check my health and they notice a big difference.

I told them about Fiji Rourou.

The best in the world for my health.

The breast cancer survivor is right about Rourou.

Hibiscus Highway

For those who do not know Hibiscus Highway is the Savusavu to Napuka road.
