First and fore­most, Praise the Lord, the God of Is­rael who lives from ev­er­last­ing to ev­er­last­ing. Amen and amen (PS 41:13).

Sub­se­quently, one of the com­pelling fac­tors that con­vinc­ingly is mind bog­gling and nat­u­rally bind­ing on the planet Earth is that all cre­ated be­ings must take wa­ter into their bod­ies in some form and dis­pose of body refuse.

Like­wise, all per­sons there­fore have wa­ter sup­ply and dis­posal meth­ods, none the less, even in our beloved Fiji, var­i­ous lo­cal­i­ties of our com­mu­ni­ties di­rectly en­gage with the fol­low­ing such as dip­ping from flow­ing streams, draw­ing buck­ets of wa­ter from the well, turn­ing wa­ter taps and catch­ing rain wa­ter from roofs, as they are all wa­ter sup­ply meth­ods.

On the ben­e­fit of hind­sight, dur­ing the af­ter­math pe­riod of Fe­bru­ary this year after Fiji was be­ing hit with a cat­e­gory five T/C Win­ston no­tably the strong­est ever in the South­ern Hemi­sphere with wind gusts of 306 km/hr an­other pe­cu­liar sig­nif­i­cant dis­cov­ery that took place in the North East­ern side of Viti Levu on a site known as Natadra­dave where the mir­a­cle heal­ing wa­ter sur­faced therein. Re­al­is­ti­cally though, our Govern­ment with rel­e­vant min­istries and stake­hold­ers worked in part­ner­ship with the com­mu­ni­ties at large as to stream­line and in­cor­po­rate con­ve­nience re­strooms and san­i­ta­tion in view of pub­lic de­mand that flooded to Natadra­dave look­ing for bet­ter health. More­over with due re­spect to the chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of the Wa­ter Au­thor­ity Opetaia Ravai with his staff who worked over­time do­ing tremen­dous work for sta­tion­ary wa­ter taps as well as to the project that will take shape in the near fu­ture for the erec­tion of a pool and a re­stroom. In a nut­shell, in my view we should grasp th­ese golden op­por­tu­nity be­fore it may be too late as ev­ery­thing un­der this planet is un­der sea­son as it also comes to an end.
