OPINION

Editorials

From the desk of managing editor: 28 August
“Life must be a challenge. Only then is it exciting. In an obstacle race, you are forced to surmount all the obstacles: to jump over the hurdles, go through the barrels, crawl under the rugs, climb over walls.

Editorials

From the desk of managing editor: 21 August
It is important that when we passionately start to pursue any single goal we make space for play. It was not for nothing that we were taught “all work and no play…”

Love, light, festivities and the controversy
Serious allegation - 2

By Roy Kaunds
"Vishwas" says, "The aim of these Hindu fascists is to possess Hindus here with the same hate as in Indian Hindus." I agree NZ has no place for Fascism - Hindu or secular.
