Leaving a legacy

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Every one of us is going to leave a legacy of some kind.

If you think of those who have gone before, whether friends or family.

Usually there are one or two words that sum up their lives.

People are remembered for their gen­erosity, their courage, their attitude or a particular hobby or interest.

Sometimes this legacy is a positive one and sometimes it is not.

Most people don’t like to think about the end of their lives, but without realising that each day we are building a legacy that we will leave behind.

We do not choose it at the moment we die, but rather it’s the accumulation of our choices that we make on a daily basis.

Christians must be known as persons who praise God. Every day you have the opportunity to choose the legacy you will leave to those who come after you.


Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

Maybe it’s the Lomaiviti Provincial Council that hosted a tea party now (FS 28/4), surely parliamentarians later.

Vodafone Service

A Shariff Shah, Savusavu

The Vodafone coverage in greater Savusavu area is pathetic indeed. To get your conversation through to the other party you have to dial at least three or more times.

It is worse during peak hours and top up promotions.

HSBC venue

Steven Chandra, Suva

Since Nadi has been chosen to host the Fiji leg of HSBC 7s, preparations should also begin as an alternative venue in Suva.

Because Nadi is flood prone it may not be suitable venue and this could cause disappointments to all concerned.

Suva, being the capital city and hav­ing major entertainment venues and businesses, is an ideal venue to host international tournaments.

Supreme Creator

Isireli Bolaniveimau, Lautoka

Since 2007, a seer, man of God, pro­claimed through revelation from the supreme creator in a dream that Fiji will be going through a period of three consecutive events, initially the Ds.

Ultimately, they are as follows: Democ­racy, decrees, and decalogue.

Interestingly, I was chosen at the 11th hour to join more than 47 participants on an interfaith search to facilitate representatives’ enlightenment to the community of faith and each other’s beliefs from April 24-25.

In a nutshell, Mr Lagonilakeba and Mr Vakaliwaliwa through their previous letters that they were adamant that the previous rulers of my country of birth have failed and not up to par with the current ruler, at least.

I beg to differ as I already publicly stated on February 15, 2018, at the sugar cane growers council that seasonal change is one of the most consistent ways of bringing hope.

Whatever transpires after the 2018 General Election we should all welcome it to the fullest and learn to respect and love one another God because is in control.

The Constitution has already mapped out the way forward to our nation – period.

North Korean Leader

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

Kim Jong-Un shot onto the world soon after he took over from his father as the youngest president of his country.

He was the most reported individual on the international arena for defy­ing the odds and concentrated on the production and manufacture of his advanced nuclear firepower to compete with the bigger boys and that was his national priority.

Apart from President Obama and now Donald Trump he took no notice of the many threats against him and his coun­try, but was most popular in world news every day apart from the popular daily killings, suicide bombers, chemical warfare, bombings that is a norm and prevalent throughout the Middle East.

He did not care less about the United Nations sanctions and warnings from its Security Council including threats from individual members like America, United Kingdom and France to name a few.

United Nations sanctions did not deter him until as of late when he was pushed to the brim by the no-nonsense seriousness of the American president Donald Trump with his Allies.

I congratulate the North Korean leader and strongman; he is now talk­ing to his neighbours South Korea and China in leaving no stone unturned to gather support in his Nuclear Disar­mament programme as desired by the United Nations.

Mr Kim was threatening the entire globe with an imminent World War 4, but his neighbour Japan was not taking the threats lightly, he had done a 360 degrees turn around and we are yet to witness how serious the man is.

I believe the young leader had learnt his lessons and he should be embraced and supported in his decision with his positive turn and his desire to change and concentrate on rebuilding his nation’s economy with the help of his neighbours and the United Nations.

We pray and hope there will be posi­tive results from Kim Jong-Un’s im­pending proposed meeting with Donald Trump as it will make the world a safer place.

Although the return to normalcy will take time, it is an opportunity as he has made amends and the effort with China and his families from South Korea in adhering to their advice, which is a trait of great leadership.
