Best games

PNG delivered the best Pacific Games as promised. But I am wondering what the jeers at the Fijian contingency was for at the opening ceremony. I hope it was just good natured Pacific rivalry.

Prostitution

I REFER to Vineel Nand’s (FT 20/07) letter to which his opening line states his concern on “the increasing number of rape, seduction, etc” to which he follows up with the “legalisation of prostitution” which he strongly recommends. Please correct me if I’m wrong Mr Vineel, are you saying that it’s okay to seduce and rape prostitutes? I believe many people in the country are trying their best to combat this act and here is a writer who is looking for ways to increase the number of women getting raped.

Bus bays

AFTER reading The Fiji Times, I am convinced that all our buses bays throughout the country are polluted by all the oil leaks and fumes from the old buses engines. What is the environment department doing about this? Sooner or later the oil will make its way to the drains and into the sea. I am wondering how these buses ever get roadworthy certificates from LTA. I hope the authorised department does something before it’s too late.

Private business

SOME people would talk to us as if they are smart and that they know everything. They would intervene in our private business whenever they want to. It is always better to keep calm when we come across such people. We must always maintain our composure. They treat us that way because they try not to reveal the evil things they are doing in secret. Wolves in sheep’s skin? Yes indeed!

Good coach

A GOOD coach is one who is able to read the game while it is being played, not after a game has been played.

Fiji’s economy

REPORTS about Fiji’s economy is contradictory. I usually have a talanoa session with cane farmers in Mulomulo and some ask, “Hey boss how is the country doing?” One lot of experts say we are doing well. The other lot say that we aren’t. What is the truth? I don’t know what to tell my mates in Mulomulo.
