Update: 12:14PM LORD Rama sacrificed everything for his Kingdom and his people.

Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Lands and Mineral Resources Faiyaz Koya noted this while officiating at the Ram Naumi celebration that was organised by the Om Shiv Shakti Ramayan Mandali in Narere last night.

Mr Koya said one could not always be just concerned and worried about his or her own comfort, convenience, and pleasure.

“We need to be thoughtful about those people who are in difficulty around us and at times, we need to make sacrifices in order to help them,” Mr Koya said.

“I think we in Fiji are very blessed because we all Fijians are actually gifted in helping others,” he said.
