Rabuka and Ro Teimumu

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

It’s amazing what the Fiji Sun-Razor opinion poll has revealed (FS 31/3) amid the stirrings and controversy surrounding the Lynda Tabuya and Ro Dona Takalaiyale saga.

As it stands PM Bainimarama leads Kepa and Rabuka.

The poll certainly speaks of activities.

Sports complex

Narayan Reddy, Lautoka

Minister for Local Government Praveen Bala should be commended for his vision to develop Lautoka City.

The ground-breaking of an outdoor multipurpose court at Natokowaqa and the proposed sports complex at Nadovu Grounds will lift the image of Lautoka city.

The swimming pool at the botanical garden is under construction and soon Lautoka will have an Olympic-size swimming pool.

To top it off the minister has waived all charges for the use of the sporting complex in Lautoka.

Thank you Mr Bala for all the good work you have done in Lautoka.

King Of Sevens

Floyd Robinson, Nasinu

I read with interest the launching the new book titled Waisale Serevi: King of Sevens.

It did bring back memories of the good old days when Television was not in Fiji and rugby fans relied entirely on the voice of Graham Eden.

Back in 1989, William Sinclair kept telling us to watch for a player by the name of Waisale and he boasted the Fiji had the ability to defeat the invincible New Zealand team. 

I can still quite clearly recall  the expression on the faces of our elders, the excitement and disbelief,  as Graham Eden described how Waisale goose stepped his way past the then master of the goosestep, David Campese of Australia.

The rest is history and it was a turning point in Fiji rugby history of when people of all walks of life at home began to take much more interest in our national sevens team.

While the playing days of this gentleman from Gau may be over his legacy does live on.

False notion

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Most, if not all of us, know the feeling of enduring a trial or time of suffering that feels like it will never end.

It is tempting for us to blame God and become bitter against him. What it does mean is that there is hope.

We have a loving father who will never fail or forsake us.

The hardship and trials should not come as a surprise to us.

The popular notion that Christian life is meant to be easy and that we should receive blessings leaves people poorly prepared when difficulty comes.

The thing that sustains us through trials is our faith that God is still the same and is still in control no matter what you go through. I believe all our trials are father filtered.

We are reminded to continue keeping faith in God despite our situation.

Joshua vs Parker

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

The one-page advertisement (FS 30/03) by Fiji One TV about the live & exclusive showing of the Joshua vs Parker today (April 1) at 9.45am means nothing to many of us northerners!

What we want to know is why aren’t many up north not getting the free Fiji TV service?

We have large billboards with “EQUALITY” boldly staring us in the face, but such advertisements hardly serve any justice!

I live a mere 10-minute drive from Savusavu Town and I don’t have the opportunity to get Fiji TV services, but instead I get TVWAN and watch PNG news!

Now how absurd is that?

Easter Sunday

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

Easter Sunday is the guarantee of our own resurrection.

It is a feast which gives us hope and encouragement in this world of pain, sorrows and tears.

It reminds us that life is worth living.

Easter Sunday and all it represents is so important.

With the resurrection comes new hope, new possibilities, new life, new promise and change.

In short, the message of Easter is that nothing can destroy us – not pain, sin, rejection or death – because Christ has conquered all these and we too can conquer them if we put our faith in Him.

Easter is about families and forgiveness and is time to reflect on the things that really matter.

I believe resurrection is about seeing our world in a new way.

Street light

Kirti Patel, Lautoka

My hairs are very soon going to go all white anticipating that the streetlight in Mohan Singh Pl can be fixed anytime soon. To the authorities please don’t forget our street because with us there are plenty kids living here as well. For the last time please wake up and do something.
