November to remember

A cow gives milk to the whole village but it does not make noise. But when a hen lays just one egg that can not even feed one child it crows and makes noise to the whole village to know that it has laid an egg. People who offer little help keep shouting and writing...

Daylight Saving

Australia had their Daylight Saving one week before ours and we were only an hour difference with them, instead of the normal two hours difference. Now that Fiji has opted to have its own Daylight Saving, the normal two hour time difference with Australia remains. Apart from enjoying and making use of the extra daylight...

Street lights

At the moment the lights turn on at 8.35pm (d.s.t) daily leaving the streets in darkness from after sunset which is about 7pm.

Party manifesto

So all the parties have come out with their manifesto containing glorious promises. I wonder whether the average voter even knows about the existence of such statements or understand it’s implications. Vote wisely.   WISE MUAVONO Balawa, Lautoka

Letters to the Editor – November 9

Diwali sweets and all The much hyped and fun-filled Diwali festivities are over. The skies glittered with an array of fireworks and it certainly was a marvel to watch such a bright display on the darkest night. Mouth-watering sweets and scrumptious food and pleasantries were gleefully exchanged, which reminds I probably need to get a...

Road hump hazard Last year in September, motorists were taken by surprise when two sets of road humps were installed along Ratu Dovi Rd near the Coke factory.
