Kops, I only wish that I could have known him more. He was indeed rare.

Kops, I cannot think of someone in the Galkope that can be equated to late Bomai Norbert. Norbert has no aggression or dislike for anybody in his days. He lived a saintly life all through until his death. May many of our men adopt Norbert's personality and build a prosperous future for our people.

Eloquent piece of writing. Gives insights into the Melanesian culture and way of life. Really enjoyed reading it.

A great narrative in a biographical perspective. We need a lot more fathers like the late Bomai. However, most of our fathers today sees girls as objects that can be sold for huge amounts of money in terms of bride price.

Education provides a life worth more than bride price thus I applaud the philosophy of the ;ate Bomai to educate girls long before his death.

It can be come a moral lesson for others to learn from.

Jimmy's poem on Bride Price will be published in PNG Attitude tomorrow - KJ
