Dear Editor,
Lately, there has been so much brouhaha about the Stabroek Market Clock, its restoration and seeming negative implications that time has struck me out. Yes, I am somewhat taken aback and at a loss for words as I try to grapple with the thinking or level of mental cognition of some of the key players and sayers.

Speaking from an angle of political correctness, the iconic Stabroek Market Clock is not just your ordinary timepiece. It takes pride of place alongside the likes of Big Ben in London, the Saviour Tower in Moscow, the Zytglogge Tower in Switzerland, the Rajabai Clock Tower in Mumbai , India, and the Peace Tower Ottawa just to name a few.    Continue reading

After fifty years of Independence, many improvements which discerning citizens had dreamed for our Capital City are far from having been achieved. Some citizens have been openly voicing their disappointment at the lack of a twenty first century clean capital city.

They never gave up. They never flinched. They are the unsung heroes and heroines of Georgetown.  Continue reading

The Demise of West Indian Cricket – commentary


West Indies cricketMaybe to those of a certain age, popularly referred to as the millennial generation, sometimes as millennials, or frequently as the quizzically titled Generation Y, it may merely be classed as the stuff of legend, but there was indeed a time when our regional team stood at the apex of the cricketing world; when most fans in the region stayed awake all night to follow the commentary when we played in Australia; when people walked with transistor radios glued to their ears, inevitably requested time and again to provide some inquiring stranger with the latest score; when schools were granted an entire day off during local Test matches and when it seemed that all was right with the region and, indeed, the world.

Alas, these times have changed significantly and what was once our passion has now become enveloped in a pall of disinterest consistent with much else in the region besides; a disinterest that even our two successive triumphs in the lottery of World T20 cricket competitions have been unable to diffuse.       Continue reading
