When Russell Bowers from CBC RADIO asked this question, it momentarily stumped me. Is there any Fiji still left in me?
When we emigrate to a foreign country and assimilate into a totally foreign culture, how much of our native homeland do we retain and carry within ourselves forever. Do we choose the cultural values and beliefs that we let go of and the ones we hold on to? And over time, do we loose more of these values or is it that when we get older, we slowly make our way back to those roots that we thought we left behind? Is there any Fiji still left in me? I want to believe that there is a lot of Fiji left in me!
