The Grand Marshall, Dr. Dhanpaul Narine leads the Parade

The Diwali Motorcade last Saturday night (October 14, 2017) turned out to be a historic event. The crowds were massive under warm skies. The Police catered for about 2,000 persons but close to 10,000 persons showed up that made the Motorcade the biggest in North America. Several more streets had to be closed to accommodate the crowds, with additional security called.

The Grand Marshall, Dr. Dhanpaul Narine, had asked for 1,000 persons to walk with him but about twice this number was present. The cultural program was great and included items from Guyana, Suriname, India and Trinidad, among others.     Continue reading

MAHATMA GANDHI ‘S INFLUENCE IN GUYANA – by Ramnarine Sahadeo

MAHATMA’S INFLUENCE IN GUYANA

by Ramnarine Sahadeo

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Wikipedia

Mohandas K. Gandhi

Born: October 2, 1869, Porbandar, IndiaAssassinated: January 30, 1948, New Delhi, India.

Mohandas K. Gandhi was born in Asia, educated in Europe, and matured in Africa but never touched the soil of the Americas yet his influence was global and it would be a dim perception to conclude that his life and message was restricted to a few continents.

His impression on the USA is indelible. President Barack Obama stated in India in 2010 that he would not have been President had it not been for Gandhi and the message he shared with America and the rest of the world.

Martin Luther King who also lived and learnt in India stated in 1955 “Christ gave us the goals…Gandhi gave us the tactics…he influenced my life in terms of action more than anybody”. Cesar Chavez used non-violence strategy to protest the exploitation of California farm workers and showed patience when he stated the rich have money but we have time.      Continue reading

Setting the Stage for early Transgendering – By Yvonne Sam + video on Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)

Setting the Stage for Transgendering at an early age 

By Yvonne Sam

My conscious psyche was visibly jolted on reading about a camp that recently opened in El Cerrito, California. This city, founded by refugees fleeing the 1906 San Francisco earthquake has a population of 25, 000 according to the last U.S census. It is a camp with a difference. Called Rainbow Camp it offers a safe space for children up to twelve years of age to be the transgenders they were created to be. What is the world coming to?   Let the truth be told but teaching children as young as 4 years that sex is as selective and interchangeable as the garments they wear is putting their young lives on a path of confusion and ridicule.

Lyrics to a well-known song by the American country music duet, the Louvin Brothers runs thus: If we forget God, his mercy will plead and sin will cover the land and the sea. If we forget God, Satan will rule. If we forget God a nation is doomed.    Continue reading

It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth’s resources, even as we approach 11 billion?  Download the video in HD: http://media.amnh.org/sciencebulletin…

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The crowds came to Ayodhya in their hundreds each evening. By the end of the week, it was the biggest attendance at Ramayana in he Park in the nine years of its existence. On the night of Janamashmi, when Hindus were in their temples, the tent was packed to capacity and additional seating was needed.

This trend continued and by Saturday seating was needed an hour before the starting time. The theme of this year’s event was ‘ Honoring the Youths in our Community.’ Our Pandits did us proud and left devotees wanting more. Continue reading

Mary-Rose Abraham – The Inequality Project is supported by Ford Foundation | The Guardian UK

“It starts when children are young: the moment a child is born, relatives start comparing the skin colour of siblings. It starts in your own family – but people don’t want to talk about it openly.”       Continue reading
