Guyana Independence Day: Dream of a Model Nation

By Vidur Dindayal

We celebrate the 52nd anniversary of Guyana’s independence with prayers of thanks to all, past and present who made it happen. We remember their sacrifices and we honour them with a place in our hearts and in saying their names with reverence.

Guytopia is a model nation in the new world. It is what I dream Guyana would be. We are blessed with highly educated Guyanese, second to none in the world, to make this a reality.

In celebrating Independence Day, I reflect on who we are, our journey as a nation, what we can become and how we can get there.
