Azel Raj’s never let’s a good thing pass him by.

He lives by that motto, to help him get through the tough times.

A go-getter, he hails from Taveuni.

Mr Raj owns Fiji Traders, a company specialising in installation and supplying of electronic gadgets.

 

While holding down two jobs, he pursued his studies in telecommunications and networking at the Fiji National University.

One of the bigger lessons he likes to share is the need to stay grounded.

“Be humble and value the things around you,” Mr Raj said.

 

“Sometimes, you will only realise the importance of things once it’s lost.”

Mr Raj’s favourite pastime includes swimming, watching movies, reading and browsing through tech gadgets.

He is an avid and widely travelled businessman.

What Is One Spot in Fiji You Would Take Visitors To, And Why?
Taveuni.

White sandy beaches, Bouma and Lavena waterfalls, Waitavala Waterslide – to name a few.

More important are the people and the lifestyle offered on the island – humble and always welcoming.

 

What Is Your Favourite Spot For A Pie Or Coffee In Fiji, And Why?
My wife, Prish, normally decides the venue.

I do not have a favourite place.

In saying that, I love visiting various coffee shops in Fiji for a latte.

 

What Is Your Favourite Backyard Spot, And Why?
Barbeque with my team or friends over a game of Monopoly or deck of cards, either at home or elsewhere.

Sometimes, we travel to Wainadoi for a swim.

 

A beach in the Yasawa island group.

I have seen beautiful scenic pictures and have heard a lot about it.
