Sept 21, 2016:

“To be happy always is something which is difficult to achieve. That is to say, happiness and sorrow alternate in one’s life and there cannot be uninterrupted happiness alone.”

-RAMAYANA

Two concerts focussing on the Hindu holy text Ramayana will be held in Fiji by the end of September, this year. Popular Arun Govil of Lord Rama fame in the Dayanand Sagar’s television series Ramayan, and Fiji-born singer Sumeet Tappoo likely to have collaborated to perform in the concerts.

Apart from Islam and Christianity, the major religion in the Indo-Fijian community is Hinduism and therefore a variety of Hindu festivals like Holi, Diwali are celebrated here. Over time, Fijians have open-heartedly absorbed these Indian cultures and celebrate them with great enthusiasm and fervor.

Hindu Holy texts- Ramayana and Mahabharata have entrenched a very important position in the lives of Fiji people, Hindu community in particular. The admiration for these Hindu epics have lead to a dedication through these concerts.

The concerts will feature  Ram Katha by Govil and a Bhajan Sandhya by Tappoo and Govil will also speak about the stories from the Hindu book and its relevance and message for modern society while Tappoo with six leading musicians from the Indian film industry will be singing devotional songs (bhajans).

The source of entertainment for the people of Fiji are mainly Hindi movies and Hindi songs. A large number of video CDs, DVDs and cassettes of Hindi movies and songs are found in the common markets. Therefore it can be said that Indian Diaspora living in Fiji have found a home away from home.
