India Republic Day

Neelz Singh, Lami

Congratulations and best wishes for the peace and prosperity of India. Republic Day is celebrated in India on the 26th day of January every year.

Fiji and India share long-existing friendly ties and good co-operation.

The successful visit to Fiji by the Indian Prime Minister and accompanying officials has significantly contributed to the upgrading of the friendly ties between the two countries to new heights.

I hope that the Indian government will continue to support and assist Fiji.

Happy Republic Day to the Indian Government and the friendly people of the Republic of India.

Muslim Condemnation

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

I fully support the Methodist Church for backing Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama condemning anti-Muslim sentiments (FS 28/1).

Surely the Mosaic Codes, the Torah and the Codes of Hammurabi had democratic spirits of justice and equality.

Among the Israelites, they are commanded not to oppress people (Exodus 23:9) because they were strangers themselves. Let’s keep it that way!

Team at the top

Geeta Pillay, Suva

Thank you Mr Attorney-General. I have come to see the way we are progressing as a nation and the huge role Mr AG has played in it. Kudos to PM for acknowledging it as well. They are a real team.

Hospital visits

Premila Singh, Suva

Did the Health Permanent Secretary ever get around to meeting with patients soon after the fire at Lautoka Hospital?

I understand that in the first year or two of his employment he has yet to step into Labasa Hospital.

It certainly feels like the Health Minister is doing the work of the Health Permanent Secretary.

Bus shelters

Ravulolo Tuikubulau, Natabua

I wish to voice the disappointment of the residents of Natabua Housing community regarding the damage done to two nearby bus shelters.

This was the result of reckless and careless driving.

One of the shelters that serves students attending St Thomas, Natabua Primary, Fiji National University and residents of Natabua Stage 2 community was damaged by a driver employed by a courier company last year.

Although the Police have been involved, nothing has been done to repair the bus shelter.  It is currently tilted and a hazard.

We wrote to the courier company and visited their Lautoka office asking for answers.

  No one wants to accept the blame.

While the Natabua Stage 2 bus shelter is still in a bad shape, a bus driver rammed into the second bus shelter two weeks ago.

The bus shelter serves people living in Natabua Stage 1.

These shelters were built by the community.

I hope someone will be bold enough to come up with solutions to rebuild the bus shelter soon.

Seeing the stories

Sovaia Pace, Sydney

How come Fiji Times does not find the stories that Fiji Sun has been finding from the 70 plus schools that have rebuilt bigger and better post Winston?

I am very very happy to see how good the schools have been built. Shame not everyone can see that.

7s defeat by USA

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

Statistically Fiji had no ball at all against USA in both halves.

What is the coach’s approach in this scenario?

Fiji has lost a few important matches in the past with these very similar patterns of the game. We have not been getting the ball back at the restart like Day One and Two of the Sydney 7s.

We did not push the USA ruck in order to get the ball back. Fijian players seem to play their own every time they handle the ball and only released the ball when in trouble.

  USA started walking over Fiji because there were hardly any hard-hitting tackles.

After beating New Zealand in pool play everyone thought Fiji would win the Sydney 7s.

Another factor is the way the coach has been positioning players. The coach should have an A team to start every game and suitable substitutes when required.

Gareth Baber has been putting everyone everywhere and we the supporters are always getting mixed up. I believe we should be looking for a new coach as he will not last long if he carries on this way.
