Change Tri-Nations Rugby

Taitusi Sokiveta,  Phoenix, Arizona

I suggest that the Tri-Nations Rugby should be changed to the Eight Nations Rugby tournament.

It would make it more exciting as more nations and spectators would become involved.

Keep South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and Argentina, and add Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Namibia to make it an Eight Nation Rugby tournament.

This will not only be good for rugby in the Southern Hemisphere, but also a good international relationship will be forged between all countries involved.

On this regard, there will be learning of different cultures, traditions, customs and languages, different varieties of food, dishes and business engagements including import and export where the countries will get to trade with each other.

The said rugby tournament between the eight countries can open up these doors of opportunities and better international relations.

For example: Argentinians can learn to prepare and eat local dishes like fish cooked in coconut milk with taro and cassava or side dishes like roti and curry.

And in return we can learn how to prepapre and eat sopa de pollo (Spanish Chicken Soup) and Spanish tamales.

The Eight Nations Rugby will be a great blessing to the whole Southern Hemisphere.

Awesome Fijian 7s

Amit Nilesh Prasad,  Nausori

My sincere appreciation to the 7s rugby team for putting up a gallant performance in the 7s Rugby World Cup 2018.

Though it was not our day, I am sure the team and management has learnt some valuable lessons which are far greater than a win.

For me winning is not everything.

What matters is your presence, participation and most important of all is your statement that we are team to reckon with.

The boys and management through their perseverance and determination has boldly put Fiji on the world map.

They certainly deserve all the applause and a big Vinaka Vakalevu for the awesome season we had this year.

Indeed it was a roller coaster ride and you deserve all the breaks.

You guys were always in my prayers and will always be.

Keep working hard.

There’s always next time.

Northern trip

Narayan Reddy,  Lautoka

I had the opportunity to visit Labasa for some business opportunities and l found out some interesting things. Sadly the Labasa Club could not give me any receipts for drinks purchased and a hotel in Labasa charges $38 for a serve of fish curry with roti.

Anyways the homeless problem is also a big problem in Labasa with people sleeping near the Post Office building.  I am sure my government will look into these problems very soon.


Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi, Suva

Sitiveni Rabuka’s traditional pride in his own impartiality could see himself as the main protector of iTaukei interest once again.

Not only does he require leadership skills as revealed to us by this newspaper (Fiji Sun 24/7), but constitutional immunity clauses as well to protect him from past deeds.

He holds an influential position over SODELPA executives and the party despite the stirrings and the widening gap between the two camps.

Whether that contributes to stability or not is another matter.

His ideologies reflect a radical nature of traditional elitism and nationalism similar to Buta.

Nemani Delaibatikis’s analysis article is relevant (Fiji Sun 24/7). I wish them well!

God knows you

Dharmendra Kumar,  Suva

God does know our names. He knows everything about us down to the smallest details. Jesus said,

“But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows”(Luke 12:7).

The intimate knowledge that God has of us is a source of strength and comfort. It frees us from the fear that we have to make our way through this world alone.

The same God who has the power to create all things has the knowledge of who we are and where we are and what we need.

There are more than seven billion people living on the Earth today.

But that vast number is made up of individuals, each of whom is personally known to God by name.

God is a loving father who will never abandon or forsake or forget his children. God knows you and loves you. We need to have a relationship with God and trust God in all things.
