Everything about Kishore Kumar - the rogue computer science teacher at the centre of a political storm in Fiji - is bizarre. There is his appearance – the darting eyes and crescent beard that seems glued to his chin like a caricature villain in a C grade Bollywood movie. There is the staccato verbal delivery and wild language – the conspiratorial … [Read more...] about # KISHORE KUMAR: WHO KNEW WHAT AND WHEN?
It may seem that Grubsheet is spending far too much time on the performance of CJ Patel's Fiji Sun but that is only because the newspaper is so shameless in its propaganda in favour of the man who controls it - the Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
