Joyols Phay weeke




off holiday weekend


PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo and
Opposition Leader Robert Corbin
joined hundreds in Phagwah
celebrations hosted yesterday morning
by Indian High Commissioner Avinash
Gupta as the tempo picked up for the
long holiday weekend.


The mood changed yester-
day for the gaiety of the Hindu
festival of Phagwah after the
sombre Good Friday holiday
leading up to the fun-filled Eas-
ter weekend.
It was a colourful atmo-
sphere on the lawns of the In-
dian Cultural Centre at New
Haven, Bel Air, Georgetown,
where the President and Mr
Corbin joined the crowd for the
festivities.
Celebrants generously
doused each other with coloured
powder and liquids, exchanged
greetings and danced to the
sounds of oriental rhythms.
Among others there were
Prime Minister Sam Hinds and
other members of the Cabinet,
Member of Parliament and
Deputy Speaker of the National
Assembly, Ms. Clarissa Riehl,
Minister of Parliamentary Af-
fairs and President of the
Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha,
Mr. Reepu Daman Persaud, and
representatives of the local busi-
ness community including Chair-
man of the Private Sector Com-
mission (PSC), Mr. Yesu
Persaud.
As the celebrations gathered
momentum, Mr. Hinds, Mr.
Gupta, Mr. Corbin, Ms. Riehl
and many others joined in the
dancing, moving to the rhythms


of the Phagwah song "Raanga
Bhar Seh", made popular by In-
dian movie superstar Aminitabh
Bachchan, and the reverberating
and scintillating beat of tassa
drums.
Gupta, who is observing his
second Phagwah celebrations
here, said, "It makes me feel at
home, and I even enjoy it more
in Guyana."
He feels that this year's cel-
ebrations have a special signifi-
cance against the background of


the devastation of the January
floods and hopes the spirit of
the festival would help to reju-
venate the minds of the
Guyanese people, particularly
the victims of the floods.
The High Commissioner,
however, observed that unlike
Guyana, the celebrations in In-
dia start early in the morning
and are over by mid-day be-
cause of the intense heat during
this time.
Mr. Corbin remarked that
Phagwah in Guyana is national
in character and provides an op-
portunity of even more than a
holiday of celebrating together,
helping to bridge barriers and
ease tensions.
The festival also provides
for healing and "realising our na-
tional motto: One People. One
Nation and One Destiny." he
said, adding that only by shar-
ing would people come to re-


spect each other's culture and
religion, which his party
recognizes as having an impor-
tant role in the healing process.
For this reason, he said his
party places emphasis on reli-
gion, and in recognition of this,
its founder-leader, L.F.S
Burnham brought into being na-
tional holidays for all the major
religions to observe their re-
spective occasions.
Mr Reepu Daman Persaud
noted that Phagwah is a festi-
val that brings people together
and helps to reduce tensions.
"We have a beautiful coun-
try where people are getting to-
gether, thinking together and
have respect and tolerance for
each other's religion and cul-
ture," he said, adding that toler-
ance for the religion and culture
of others actually strengthens
the individual.

POLICE uncovered eight

The raid followed a tip-off

held up four fishing boats based
at Annandale, East Coast

robbed them of the outboard en-

adrift in the Atlantic Ocean.

Guyana exploring


hydro-power options


President reports

GUYANA is moving to reduce its dependence on fossil fu-
els and is looking to develop its hydro-power potential, ac-
cording to President Bharrat Jagdeo.
The government has discussed hydro-power plans with sev-
eral companies, he told Natasha Waldron of NCN TV 6 O'clock
News Magazine in an interview, but did not go into details
A Government Informanion Agency iGINA) report on the
interview said the President identified h.dropower generation
as a priority of his administration.
"This country has hydro potential...we have been talking
about hydro for a very long time that is several governments,
but it is time to do it", he said.
He noted that the government initiated talks on the issue
with Guyana Power and Light Company when it was under
foreign management, but it was not inclined to commit to a
power purchase agreement which is critical to developing hy-
dro-electricity to supply cheap power to industries and con-
sumers.
"We need cheap electricity in this country for its develop-
ment. So I have had some discussions with various groups and
over the next few years that is what we would be working on",
Mr Jagdeo said.
He pointed out that it takes time to put together a hydro
project "because you have to do a lot of environmental studies
and (you need) time to raise the money but that is one of my
plans to move this country to cheaper electricity."
He said Guyana cannot continue to develop on the basis of
electricity provided solely by fossil fuels.
The US$110M Skeldon modernisation project in the sugar
sector will generate some 30MW of power from bagasse (sugar
waste) burning.
GINA said he noted that in the quest for a better Guyana,
his government has put strong focus on the social sector and
restoring infrastructure.
"We have made progress in those areas, although we have
not accomplished all we set ourselves".
He said the task is to make the economy more resilient to
external forces "as we depend heavily on exports".
He noted this highlights the need for diversification and low-
ering production costs.
Diversification is particularly important in the sectors that
contribute wealth to the economy, including tourism, agro-pro-
cessing and semi-precious stones and petroleum products, the
President said.
He, however, stressed that this would require a sound foun-
dation and that would include proper infrastructure, which
makes hydro-power pertinent.
He also noted that modern telecommunication was impor-
tant for development, not only for Information Technology re-
lated services but for businesses to operate and residents to have
a comfortable communication system that is reliable and cheap.
The current system is not very reliable although it is grow-
ing, he said.
"We are going to keep working at this until we have
greater competition in the environment and we have about
three competing cell phone companies like in many coun-
tries."

remote Guyana airstrip, sources
said.
The single engine Venezu-
elan-registered Cessna aircraft
was Thursday afternoon flown
under Army escort to the Cheddi

Timehri, where local investiga-
tors and DEA agents were
checking it, sources said.
Police yesterday said the

Mrs Kourmiah on
Thursday said that although
they are counting their
losses, they are praying for
the safe return of the fisher-
men who all have families.
"I am worried because
I can't afford to buy new
engines for the boats and
all my workers are out of
jobs now", she said.

He told report-

Digicel denies


Cel*Star claims


THE Digicel phone company
has accused U Mobile
Cel*Star Guyana Inc of try-
ing to block or delay its en-
try into the Guyana market.
In a press release, the Irish
firm said it was aware that U
Mobile Cel*Star Guyana and its
parent company, Trans World
Tele Telcom Caribbean Limited,
has filed action against Digicel
in Guyana.
Digicel said it is yet to be
served with a copy of the claim.
It said that contrary to the
claims by U Mobile Cel*Star,
"Digicel has not hired nor
sought to hire anyone from U
Mobile, any of its affiliated
companies, or indeed from any
telecommunications company in
Guyana."
Digicel said it was a wel-
come new entrant in each of
its eight markets of operation

the company.
Strasser said U Mobile is
seeking injunctions to re-
strain Digicel from employ-
ing U Mobile staff and from
continuing with other alleged
breaches of contract.

TOGETHER



ON U.N.



REFORMS

NOW that United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan
has officially released the report of the high-level com-
mission for sweeping reforms of the world body, the Car-
ibbean Community has no alternative but to come forward
with its own collective endorsement of key proposals:
Foremost, of course, would be the initiatives undertaken,
in collaboration with Latin American allies, on choice of candi-
dates for a significantly enlarged and appropriately representa-
tive U.N. Security Council from the current 15 members to 24.
Like other sub-regions of the global community, the nations
of Latin America and the Caribbean have a responsibility to
demonstrate unity in choosing the single most appropriate coun-
try candidate to compete for the nine new seats on the U.N.
Security Council. That country seems to be Brazil.
For Asia. India and Japan appear to be the front runners.


while South Africa and possibly Nigeria are viewed as the likely
consensual candidates for Africa.
Guyana has already signalled commitment to border
neighbour Brazil; also for India and Japan, as well as its pre-
paredness to support the emerging consensual candidates from
Africa and the Pacific region.
There are good reasons to believe that this kind of
thinking generally prevails among other member states
of CARICOM. Therefore, when the Community's Foreign
Ministers meet this Wednesday in Barbados to consider
the region's position on U.N. reforms, we expect them to
emerge with a common set of endorsements and/or pro-
posals, and not only on potential candidates for the ex-
panded 24-member Security Council.
The recommendations of the Foreign Ministers will go to
thile CARICOM Heads of Government for a final decision at
their forthcoming summit in July ahead of a special U.N. Sum-
mit in September.
Secretary-General Annan, in presenting the report last week,
made clear his own impatience with "high-sounding declarations"
and his anxiety for "action-action to fulfil the promises already
made".
The Caribbean. which was among sub-regions that had

THIS 'Resurrection Sunday',
undoubtedly the most impor-
tant faith-based event in the
Christian calendar, coincides
with a virtual end-game in an
unprecedented legal and po-
litical battle over the right of
a severely brain-damaged
American woman to live or
die Terri Schiavo.
It is a choice that has fur-
ther damaged the social fabric of
the U.S.A. where the conver-
gence of a political/religious
agenda of a claimed "born again"
President, George Bush, and his
strong and militant rightwing
evangelical constituency holds
serious implications for the very
democratic culture to which
they are supposedly committed.
A question of relevance for
Caribbean people is whether
there are lessons for us in the
case of Terri Schiavo and the le-
gal and political dramas that
have taken place this past week
in the full glare of the world's
media.
Involved were: The parents
and husband of the 41-year-old
Schiavo in an essentially family
affair in which the President of
the U.S.A. and his brother, Jeb
Bush, the Governor of Florida,
chose to become activist crusad-
ers, driven by an influential neo-
conservative religious electoral
base.
Let us ponder, for now, two
related lessons for the Carib-
bean, as "third border
neighbour" of the U.S.A. First,
the importance of maintaining


the separation of powers in gov-
ernance of a democratic state;
and secondly, preserving respect
for fundamental human rights -
like freedom of choice and right
to personal privacy.
Schiavo's right to die, rather
than remain in a medically de-
fined "persistent vegetative


state" as she has been for 15
years and which right has re-
peatedly been upheld for the
past seven years by State and
Federal judges.
Incidentally, it is not the
first of such tragic cases in the
U.S.A. where State laws have
permitted hospitals to remove
respirators or pull the plug on
feeding tubes.
The significant differ-
ence has to do with the col-


elaboration of a second-termn
Bush presidency and his Re-
publican-dominated Con-
gress to move the goal post in
pandering to the neo-conser-
vative, religious electoral
base to deny Terri Schiavo's
"right-to-die" decision, even
if it meant essentially send-


ing, by special legislation, a
directive to the judiciary.

A MOCKERY
In so doing, the Bush presi-
dency has made a mockery of
the concept of democratic gov-
ernance that we in the Carib-
bean Community have long
come to cherish warts and all.
It is the concept of separation
of powers of the three essential
arms of democratic government


- Executive. Legislative and Ju-
diciary.
Preservation of judicial inde-
pendence is at the core of this
system of governance to ensure
that neither the executive nor
legislative branch violates con-
stitutionally-entrenched free-
doms. For example like those
we can readily identify in the
U.N. Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.
It is to the credit of those
State and Federal judges who
held their grounds, even as some
Congressional Democrats were
genuflecting to the pressures
and passion of Republicans, as
influenced from Bush's White
House for passage of the so-
called 'Schiavo bill'.
The legislation basically di-
rected the court system to ad-
dress the appeals that kept rep-
licating themselves from
Schiavo's parents for restoration
of her feeding tube. But the
courts repeatedly rejected the
appeals.
Ultimately, with the Bush
brothers, President and Gov-
ernor, all fired up on the of-
fensive by a desperate "right-
to-life" lobby that has been
contemptuous of Schiavo's
personal right to die, the case
again went before the Su-
preme Court. And for the
third time, the nation's high-
est court refused to hear it.
Not missed by civil liberties
advocates and the majority of
polled Americans who support
the original judicial ruling for re-

that had facilitated removal by
the Texas Children Hospital of
the breathing tube of a six-
month-old baby boy of Wanda
Hudson, against her objection.
He died shortly after.


Little wonder, therefore,
that Democrat lawmakers who
refused to support the Schiavo
legislation and. by extension, to
interfere with the independence
of the judicial system and the
right to individual freedom, have
been denouncing the utter "hy-
pocrisy" of the President's in
now signing a law to permit res-
toration of a feeding tube for a
woman who wants respect for
her right to die.

THE JUDICIARY
The judicial and political
battles of the Terri Schiavo case,
therefore, can help in strength-
ening the resolve of all in our
Caribbean Community commit-
ted to the established concept of
separation of powers in demo-
cratic governance.
This is a concept that not
only requires judges to vigor-
ously avoid any encroachment
upon their constitutionally pro-
tected independence from the
executive and political arms of
governance.

the executive and legislative
branches should be in favour of

not followed his own position
of six years ago when he was
Governor of Texas.
As I see it, every civilised
society, and Christians all
over the world Protestants
or Catholics; evangelicals of
whatever denominations -
must demonstrate respect for
the sanctity of life. All life is
precious. Schiavo's, as well,
if she really wants to live in
a vegetative state. Evidence of
her wanting to live has not,
however, been forthcoming to
the satisfaction of one judge
after another over the years,
with last week being the cli-
max, or the end game.
When it comes to the right
to life, I would be on the side
of the anti-abortion lobbyists -
with the exception of cases in-
volving rape, incest and when a
woman's life is endangered by
her pregnancy.
Terri Schiavo's case is
one of fundamental right to
privacy and freedom to
choose. It should never have

There are indeed les-

Caribbean East Indians


A paper presented at the Conference on The Islands in
Between: Language, Literature and Culture of the
Eastern Caribbean
November 3-7, 2004, Tortola, British Virgin Islands


Lomarsh Roopnarine

This paper examines how the
caste system was diluted in
the Caribbean. The argu-
ment is that although East
Indians tried to hold to the
caste system, it has vanished
to a point where only a hand-
ful of older-generation East
Indians knows and under-
stands the social structure of
caste. The dilution of the East
Indian Caribbean caste sys-
tem was a long and pro-
tracted process. It is
emphasised that this process
was not solely caused by pres-
sure from the plantation sys-
tem or Western forms of
work routine; but also Carib-
bean East Indians were re-
sponsible for and capable of
their own cultural change.
The paper concludes that as
the caste system has van-
ished and the class system
has taken precedence, East
Indians have exchanged one
form of social stratification
for another. Nevertheless,
Caribbean East Indians have
not become totally
"Creolised." They have main-

characteristics.
Caste, an enclosed form of
social stratification, existed in
the Caribbean long before East
Indians were brought in to re-
place slave labour following
emancipation in the nineteenth


enous groups, caste stratifica-
tion existed, and with the arrival
of Europeans, the caste system
intensified. Under the mission of
colonialism and imperialism, the
Europeans not only decimated
the social structure of the indig-
enous people, but also trans-
ported Africans to the Carib-
bean to work on the sugar plan-
tations. Africans were forced to
conform to the European West-
ern work routine and social
structure (caste system) in
which domination and colour -
the preference of light skin over
black skin played a significant
role in maintaining the status
quo. Sociologist Raymond Smith
(1967) described the plantation
system in terms of "total insti-
tutions." in which there were
organizeded groups with defined
boundaries and with a marked
internal hierarchical structure
approaching an internal caste
system." The social process of
Africans was one of acctultura-
tion and inter-culturation ac-
cordingto tho te plantation sys-
tem, where old cultures and hab-
its were suppressed and new
hybridised identities were
formed. But as Africans were
about to be released from the
bondage of slavery in the middle
of the nineteenth century, the
social structure of the Carib-
bean was modified. The caste,
system was transformed into a


'T'4QPI:., ~ k~~il..'he ~l, c 'It I ii ~l~ inh'


which internal caste differentia-
tion decreased and the hierar-
chies of race, colour, wealth,
property and income took pre-
cedence. This social transforma-
tion. as Brathwaite (1971) ar-
gued. was related to "the im-
ported influence of the mother
country or the local administra-
tive activity of the white elite,
but a cultural action material,
psychological and spiritual -
based upon the stimulus/re-
sponse of individuals within the
society to their environment and
- white/black, culturally discrete


groups to each other."
The arrival of East Indian
indentured servants further
complicated the Caribbean so-
cial structure, especially in
places such as Guyana, Trinidad
and Suriname. East Indians
brought with them a caste sys-
tem that was not only based on
colour but also on religion. spe-
cifically Hinduism. Further,
East Indians were isolated from
the mainstream Caribbean plan-
tation society.

TV? They are always on and
they have all the answers to all
the problems."
But would Joey Jagan or
Robert Corbin or Ravi Dey
want to be deputy to Sharma?
"Why not? Look how they
all rallied around him the other
day when the government sus-
pended his broadcast licence!
Why wouldn't they be able to
take orders from Sharma? It's all
for the good of the city and the
country, you know, and these
men say they are committed to
working for a better Guyana",
he shot back.
So, who else would you
suggest putting on the IMC?
Well, there are so many oth-
ers. I was told. All-you have to
do is watch TV more and you
will see the 'talk show' hosts
and the 'commentators', I was
advised.
Mr Roger Moore would be
an ideal City Engineer, a mini-
bus driver recommended., noting
that he could get people to ad-
here to home-building codes.
And Mr Christopher Ram
would be the ideal candidate for
City Treasurer...he knows ev-
erything about budgeting and so
oni...
The consensus of opinion
was that there's no shortage of
talent among the ranks of the
cabal of TV 'hosts' to make up
an IMC.
It certainly looks that wvay
onil screen earnest-looking men
taking themselves all so seriously.
Mr Jagdeo can give them a
try the city is in such a mess
that anything's worth a try.
And if Mr Sharma and his
team make a mess of the job.
the President would be able to
look back and say. "See what I
told yxou?"
And if they succeed and
make Georgetown glow again, he
would be able to say, "I made
it possible",. and invite them to
join the Civic wing of the
People's Progressive Party.
The possibilities are end-
less.
All rise, His Worship, the
Mayor...

According to reports reaching our Ministry some individuals have sought to take

The challenge of customs


odernisatPon and fac citation


luis Noriega

SINCE the 1950s, an impor-
taut process began in the area
of customs that was geared
toward promoting an honest,
transparent and predictable
environment that would
legitimise in countries' cus-
toms administrations, the
flourishing international
trade taking place at that
time and which would also al-
low effective measures to be
taken against illegal activity.
Thus, in 1952, the body re-
ferred to today as the World
Customs Organisation (WCO)
was created. This is an inter-
governmental organisation
specialising in the area of cus-
toms, with more than 160 Mem-
ber States and which has pro-
moted important international
agreements, working on issues
such as the harmonised tariff
nomenclature system, customs
valuation, the origin of goods,
customs facilitation and proce-
dures, as well as the
modernisation and integrity of
customs management.
One of those major contri-
butions is the Harmonised Tar-
iff Nomenclature System, which


is employed by approximately
IS0 countries around the world.
When developed during the 70s
and 80s. the system was pro-
moted as a trade facilitation ini-
tiative. Today, it is used more
as customs nomenclature, for
formulating international trade
statistics, for applying rules of
origin, for collecting taxes, for
international trade negotiations,
transport statistics and for
monitoring controlled goods (e.g.
waste, narcotics, arms, and en-
dangered species).
Yet another important in-
strument is the Kyoto Con-
vention, which has allowed
for the definition of the vital
role that must be played by
customs in the growth of in-
ternational trade and in the
development of markets in
the globalised world. The
current global environment,
which is highly competitive,
demands great efficiency in
customs services.
It is an indisputable fact
that the trade of goods in the
world has grown at a dizzying
rate, combined with the devel-
opment of information tech-
nologies and a different interna-
tional business environment,


and given (the demand for sc: vice
quality and customer satisfac-
tion. These new realities have
given rise to a conflict between
traditional customs methods and
procedures and current needs.
These days, there is talk of in-
corporating modern concepts


Icctive controls to avoid illicit
trade and inust continue tax
collection efforts, since in some
countries customs duties still
have an extremely heavy influ-
ence on total collections.
This is an important
alternative in which many

phies on customs control and a
need for th& private sector to
partner up with governments,
establishing strategic alliances of
support and mutual benefit.
It is now a matter of de-
veloping joint and coordi-
nated efforts to eliminate ex-
isting barriers to trade by
simplifying and harmonising
customs procedures, combin-
ing the efforts of
organizations like the World
Trade Organisation (WTO),
UNCTAD and the WCO.
The issue is a complex one
because while trade must be fa-
cilitated, customs must have ef-


customs administrations are
involved. Added to this is the
low level of support and
priority given by some
governments to the issue of
customs in their domestic
policy. Furthermore, there have
been constant changes taking
place in their managerial,
administrative and technical
staff every time governments
change.
Lastly. it is imperative to
point out that some countries
do not have sufficient budget-
ary resources for their physical
modernisation and for staff
training. In addition to this,
there is the difficulty of eradi-
cating an endemic ill in customs,


the lack of transparency and
honesty. Without sufficient re-
sources. it is louili for some
countries to adequately face the
challenges o1" customs
modernisation and Iacilitation.

proximately 250 pupils and 13

including bleachers with plat-
forms measuring 21 ft x 50 ft
and complete with a meeting

Invitation to the Public for Written Submission
The Age of Consent Bill 2004 (Bill No. 22/2004) has been committed to a Special
Select Committee of the National Assembly. This Bill seeks to amend the Criminal
Law (Offences) Act, Cap. 8:01, in order to increase the age of consent from thirteen
(13) years to sixteen (16) years. It also seeks to amend the Marriage Act, Cap. 45:01, to
say that a female of sixteen (16) or seventeen (17) years of age may petition the High
Court for permission to be married.

The Committee has begun its work but wishes to receive from members of the public,
individuals as well as organizations, their views on the age of consent.

The Committee is, therefore, extending an invitation to members of the public to
forward written submissions of their views on this matter not later than 15 April
2005.

Individuals and organizations who are willing to appear before the Committee to give
oral evidence should indicate this in their submissions.

they then returned to the
house where Ravi called the
police before raising an
alarm.
Moti Anganoo, the
woman's brother, said his
sister received eight stab
wounds and her throat ap-
peared to have been slit dur-
ing the 20-minute ordeal. He
is of the opinion that inci-
dent was an execution instead
of a robbery since according
to him the woman was in-
volved in an ongoing dispute
over her deceased husband's


property.
"If it was a robbery they
would have threatened her and
try to get the money, but they
just kill her like that. Eight times
they stab her plus slice her
throat. That is not robbery," he
maintained.
Relatives say this is the
second tragedy to beset the
Jageswar family in recent times.
The dead woman, her husband
and two children were involved
in an automobile accident about
eight months ago.
Mr. Jageswar's injuries
were fatal:.
When the Sunday


Chronicle visited the home
of the deceased, blood
stains were still visible in
the yard where the
woman's grief-stricken
relatives had converged.
They said some of the
woman's teeth had earlier
been strewn on the blood-
drenched concrete but were
removed from the scene.
The children will now have
to grow up without a father or
mother and are frightened by
that prospect.
Jageswar leaves to mourn
her two children, siblings and
other relatives.

other is the im-
mense fun they had as children
watching the reading of what
was called 'The Judas State-
ment', after the well-known bib-
lical figure, Judas Iscariot, one of
Jesus' 12 disciples whom He had
foretold, while observing the
Passover, would betray Him.
The statement, which was
in the form of a newspaper,
was actually a list of all the
things that had gone wrong in
the community over the past
year, whether it was an act of
theft or injustice, all of which
was placed squarely at the feet
of Judas.
The mock trial, which is
what the exercise actually was,
was usually held the day after
Good Friday, this being yester-
day, Holy Saturday, at a park
near his home, and involved sus-


scramble
to see who could recover the
most.
As he recalls, it was a fun
affair that was more like a party.
with lots to eal and drink. Un-
fortunately, he's been awa'y so
long he doesn't know if the cus-
tom is still being practised in his
hometown.
And neither does he remem-
her much about the type of
foods they ale during the Lenten
season, though he does recall
hearing his mother, who is a de-
vout Catholic, saying that she
was brought up to abstain from
eating red meat throughout the
period.
She did not, however, rear
her children to rigidly ob-
serve this practice, except on
Friday, when they ate no
meat at all. This did not mean
that she had strayed from her
teaching, as it was customary

'THE Monster', a 50-foot
kite to be flown in West
Berbice, is ready for the
beach, owner of the kite.
Freddie Persaud said.
Persaud confirmed that
the big kite will be part of
the kite flying fun at the
N niber 6 Village, West
Coast Berbice beach tomor-
row.
"We'll get it
airborne early and then fas-
ten it to an anchor for the
rest of the day," Persaud
said.
Despite some doubts
among veteran kite flyers,
Persaud is confident that
'The Monster', with a
height of 50 feet and a width
of 36 feet, will fly.
After Easter, the tar-
paulin used to make the
kite will come in handy
for "paddy drying," he
added. '

Jean. Haiti too. is predominantly
Roman Catholic. as much as 80
per cent of its population, which
at the last count, stood at over
seven million.
This means that their
eating habits during this
ecumenical period will pretty
much follow the same trend
adopted by other Christian
communities the world over,
in that they, too, try to abstain
from eating 'flesh' among
other habits they are willing
to give up as part of their
observance during this
important religious holiday,
and to attend church
religiously.
In the countryside, however.
it's a horse of a different colour,
since some see the whole sce-
nario the fasting, the absten-
tions, the piety as being a
legacy of their colonial past and
not at all part of what they per-
ceive to be the true culture of
Haiti.

their masters, who were
invariably Roman Catholics,
observed the day in
accordance with their culture.
As such, he said, the slaves
tended to have themselves a
ball, eating the best of
foods and just having a
good time.
Another school of thought
is that the habit may have origi-
naled in tlhe struggle for indepen-
dence: that it was the slaves'

teni by doing the exacl opposite
of everything their masters stood
for. including their religious be-
liefs.

SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD Govindarai and his 11-year-old sister Satrupa mourn the loss of
their mother. Govindarai demonstrates how his hands were bound. (Pictures by Cullen

By Tinfica Forrester

A BRUTAL murder rocked the
small Grove Squatting Area
community last Friday night.
Thirty -seven-year-old
shopkeeper, Raipattie Jageswar.
was hbrutallv slain by masked
men in the yard of her modest
home at 193 Grove Squatting
Area while her two children
were held at gunpoint and
forced to hand over the family's
small savings on Good Friday.
According to the dead
woman's 17-year-old son.
Govindarai Jagesxar. called
'Ravi'. the family had just re-
turned home at about 22:00 h
after attending services at the
local Mandir when his mother
went into the yard to fill a pot


f1ron the w aler lank close by.
The visibly shaken youth
recounted thai a1 fer his other
failed to return to the house, he
\went in search of her accompa-
nied by his I 1-year-old sister
Satrupa Jageswar, called 'Dcvi'.
Just outside the back door of
the two-storeyed house, they
were accosted by two masked
men who wore dark clothing and
were armed with knives. The
men tied the teenager's hands
and covered his mouth while
demanding that Devi hand over
all the family's money. he said.
After the lass handed over
the little money she could find,
the men demanded that she give
them the family's jewellery also,
threatening to kill her if she re-
fused to comply with the de-


mand.
"I told them that we lost all
the jewellery in an accident and
one raised his hand to hit me
and asked me if I lying and I
said no," the girl recounted.
Apparently satisfied that
the child was telling the truth.
the men left, after telling the
duo that their mother would
come to them shortly.
According to the chil-
dren, they waited for a few
minutes before venturing
outside and, on exiting the
back door, they saw their
mother lying on- the ground,
still clad in her white sari
which was now drenched in
blood. The youngsters say

Kings, Royals


OWNER Kenneth Ramsey celebrates Roses In May's
success.
lo e I a

cee rae ub iwin:


THE favourite Roses In May
put in a strong display to win
the 3.2m Dubai World Cup,
the world's richest race.
The American horse, ridden
by John Velazquez, did it the
hard way after South African
raider Yard-Arm set a strong
early pace.
But once Roses In May
showed his speed to take the
lead after about 300m the five-
year-old looked set for success.
Even when Choctaw Nation
challenged late, Roses In May
found an extra gear to go on and
win.
The fast-finishing
Dynever edged out Choctaw
Nation for second while Brit-
ish challenger Jack Sullivan
looked impressive before fad-
ing late on and finishing
fourth.
It was a fifth victory in 10
runnings of the race for Ameri-
can-trained horses and Roses In


May's trainer Dale Romans was
overjoyed with the success.
"It's the most exciting thing
that has happened to me in a
long time. I'm very proud," he
said.
Jack Sullivan's trainer
Gerard Butler was full of
praise for his horse, who
earned over 280 000 for his
fourth place.
"Twoand a half furlongs out
I thought it was going to be our
day, but he didn't stay the trip.
"He's a dirt horse and we
won't be messing around with
him on turf this season. His tar-
get will be the Breeders' Cup.
"If Lingfield were to put on
a race on the sand for him, then
we might use that as a trial, but
I'd be happy going to Belmont
without a run if we needed to.
"I'm so pleased for the
owners and for Darryll, who
gave him a brilliant ride."

Ruiz set to defend

against Toney


JOHN Ruiz will defend his
WBA heavyweight crown
against James Toney in New
York on April 30.
The date had been held for
WBC champion Vitali
Klitschko to face former world
champion Hasim Rahman
before Klitschko suffered a
thigh injury.
The 36-year-old Toney (68-
4-2) is a former three-weight
world champion while Ruiz (41-
5-1) is a two-time world
heavyweight champion.
Promoter Don King wants
to bring about a heavyweight
unification series.
Toney moved up from the
cruiserweight ranks 18 months ago
with a victory over Evander
Holyfield, who lost his crown to
Ruiz.
But Toney suffered a torn
left Achilles tendon last year,
delaying his heavyweight title
quest. .


JAMES Toney has a record
of 68 wins, four losses and
two draws.
Two other King fighters,
American Lamon Brewster
and Poland's Andrew Golota,
meet in Chicago on May 21
for Brewster's WBO title.

formalise best-of-three


final showdown


By Joe Chapman

THE Victory Valley Royals
and Kashif and Shanghai
Kings will battle it out in the
two-best-of-three basketball
final of the $50 000 Alleyne's
Retrieve Raiders Basketball
Club promotion following
their respective semi-final
wins Friday night at the
Mackenzie Sports Club hard
court.
Royals were able to turn
back Amelia's Ward Jets 65-53
but the Kings had to battle over-
time to knock out the host club
Alleyne's Retrieve Raiders 61-
59 after the scores were tied 50-
50 at the end of regulation play.


Taking the court first
front court duo Dwayne Rob-
erts and Alwyn Wilson pow-
ered Victory Valley Royals
once more to an impressive
win against Amelia's Ward
Jets, winning after taking a
30-18 points advantage at
halftime.
The former junior national
centre Roberts and past national
forward Wilson both had 16
points and nine rebounds while
Troy Jeffrey who was perfect
from the line netted 13 points
and Julius Carter had 10 points
and six rebounds, four assists
and two steals for the winners.
Rawle Toney with 11 points,
Allister Webster 10 and Neil Simon


n i

DWAYNE ROBERTS
and Denzil Brutus each with eight
points played well for Jets, who
were behind by ten points 44-
54 with five minutes remaining
in the game.
The Kings had to look
for the controlled play of
former national player Auric
Tappin whose experience was
instrumental in getting them
into this final.
The veteran past-Caricom
All-Star guard had a game-high
19 points following a spectacu-
lar effort which saw the Kings
recover from a ten-point deficit
31-41 with 14:23 left in regula-
tion play. Ten minutes later
Kings were ahead 44-43 and a
tight finish it was with both
scores knotted at 50 at the end
of play.
During this final rush-to the


end Kings missed two cl, r
scoring opportunities with :6
sees to go when down 49-50.
Marvin Hartxman then n I-
ted one of two free throws to
level the scores at 50 and ses .n
seconds left Raiders' gu:, d
Mark Peters, with the game !n
hand, down close to the basket,
committed the cardinal sin of
travelling with the ball, to the
surprise of all.
He did score the lay-up
for what would have been the
winning basket, but the ref-
eree rightly waved off the
basket, with just seven sec-
onds in the game.
In overtime play Kings pre-
vailed to win a close game at
61-59, as Tappin finished with
19 points, Nolan Johnson shot
in 10 points, four rebounds and
three steals, while former na-
tional forward Abdulla Hamid
added seven points, six re-
bounds and four steals. Marvin
Hartman, Seon Charles and
Dexter Bellamy each had seven
points.
For the Raiders, national
forward Neil Marks shot well
for 16 points and six assists and
four rebounds. Louis James had
12 points and eight rebounds
while Terrence Goddette con-
tributed 13 big rebounds and six
points.
The two-best-of-three fi-
nals will be played this week.

Germany's players could

win record World Cup bonus
FRANKFL Germany (Reuters) Germany's players will
each a record 300 000 euros ($392 000) if they win
the 2006 'Abrld Cup.
The Gennan lbothall association (DFB)agreed to the figure de-
manded by Cc playeks late on Wednesday after months or negotia-
tions. The DrB had fict offered 150 000, then 250 000.
Theamount is nx 9 triple the 90 000 curos Gerniany's play-
ers would have won I y beaten Brazil in the 2002 final.
The squad wilRreceive 50 000 euros each for reaching
the 2006 quarter-Muds, 100 000 for the semi-finals and
150 000 euros if thqy reach the final, the DFB said.
I The players argued for the larger sum because they missed
out on bonuses*whicp they would have been paid for reaching
the 2006 finals. A's Ilbsts, Germany automatically qualified for
the World Cup.
I At the 2004 Europea n championship German players would
have won 400 000 curos if they had won the title, but they
were knocked Out ill the group stage and got nothing.
In 1990, West Germany players got 65 000 euros for
winning the title; in 1974, they got 30 000 euros plus a
Volkswagen Beetle; and in 1954 they got 1 250 euros each
plus a television set.


England pay to cancel
Tests in Zimbabwe
ENGLAND cricket bosses paid Zimbabwe 133 900 to finally
cancel the Test matches which were postponed last year.
The Test series was delayed after Zimbabwe's Test status was
suspended, but England played four one-day internationals last De-
cember.
ECB chairman David Morgan told the Guardian: "It is a fair
payment to them and one we have budgeted for."
England will not now be required to tour Zimbabwe until at least
2009, as the international calendar has changed.
The figure is in line with International Cricket Council
guidelines for compensation between countries, at US$125 000
per Test ...... ....... .

in Hamilton

Green final
FIRST half goals by
Shawn Morris and
Shernin Grimes were
enough for Beacon to dash
any hopes GFC had of
lifting the Kei-shars Cup
and $150 000 when the
two teams met in the fi-
nal of the Hamilton
Green competition last
Thursday night at the
GFC ground.
The game which was
watched by a small crowd
had little ito, hoot about e\.-

ris from the penalty spot in
the 28th minute then in the
44th it was Grimes capital-
i'ing on the goalkeeperr '" at-
tempted save which gifted
him the ball at the far post
to boot into an open goal.
In their desperate ef-
forts to pull back a goal
the Bourda Blues were
reduced to ten when
Andre Mayers was given
marching orders for a
dangerous tackle in the
68th minute. The home
side received $50 000 in
their losing cause.

GO straight to Digicel.
That's the advice the West
Indies Cricket Board (WICB)
has given to a regional com-
pany which has offered to
take over Digicel's sponsor-
ship contract with the board.
And that company, C.L. Fi-
nancial Group, whose subsidiar-
ies include CLICO, has C.L. Fi-
nancial, last week offered to
buy out the US$20 million
sponsorship contract as a
means of ending the impasse be-
tween the WICB, Digicel, and
its telecommunications rival
Cable & Wireless, which has left
the regional team in turmoil.
However, on Thursday, the
board, while thanking C.L. Fi-
nancial for its offer, said its
hands were tied, and any ap-
proach to buy out the contract
would have to be made directly
to Digicel.
"The board has asked me to
thank you for your kind ges-
ture, which clearly demonstrates
your interest in West Indies
cricket, and to assure you of our
openness to discussing the fur-
thering of the relationship be-
tween CLICO and the West
Indies Cricket Board that has

WOULD SEEK TALKS
In response to the state-

Andre Monteil said C.L. Finan-
cial would seek to have talks
with Digicel on the issue.
"We are pleased to know
that our offer has been given the
serious consideration it deserves
and would indeed be happy to
discuss the range of possible
outcomes with Digicel directly."
said Monteil.
He added that C.L. Finan-
cial was deeply passionate
about cricket and what was im-
portant was "for all concerned
to keep the future of cricket as
the central issue".
Some of the leading West
Indies players, including cap-
tain Brian Lara, have been
left out of the first Test match
against South Africa be-
cause of a dispute over
their personal contracts
with Cable & Wireless.

"WE have a love and unity
among our team that every-
one is focused on winning the
Mayor's Cup." These were
the assured words of Dexter
Cush, secretary of the Cari
Air Western Tigers FC.
-Cush told Chronicle Sport
that his pl.. r..'. re eager for the
contest to begin since they have
been putting in a lot of training.
adding that "our team is one of
the most exciting and attacking
teams in Georgetown".
According to the secretary.
"the entire executive of the club
has contributed towards the
team's present position and ev-
eryone is hungry for the title".
Cush hinted that three of
his key players are virtually
limping into the final. Cen-
tral defender Shermon David
is suffering with an ankle in-

jury, while midfielder Phillip
Rowley has knee and ankle
worries and wide midfielder
Ryan Thomas, a toe problem.

To add to the Tigers' woes
is the uncertainty of having star
forward Eron 'Soya' Hayde
who is currently on loan to
Youth Milan of Barbados.
ltayde. along with Pele's
Konata Manning and Dirk Ar-
cher, will play a gane for Youth
Milan in Barbados at 14:00 hl
loday. after which it is hoped
that llayde will be winged into
Guyana for the final which kicks
off at 21:00 h tonight.
National senior midfielder
Shawn Beveney who is celebrat-
ing his 23rd birthday today will
team up with Wayne Giles and
guest player Kevin 'Yellow'
McKenzie of GFC in the
midfield while the attack will be
spearheaded by national youth
players Edmonson Gomes and
Gavin Wilson together with the
other guest player from GFC.
Devon Mlliington.
Former national custo-
dian Rolex Scott will be
within the uprights.
Reflecting on last
Thursday's semi-final match
Cush said "it was poor by


Pele's standards and maybe
an indication of how much
rusty they are, but I know to-
night they are expected to
give a good account of them-
selves as they are young and
talented and are always a
force".
Form : midfielder
Rawle 'Overseas' Jones who is
in charge of Pele however claims
that his side's performance was
great when vou take into con-
sideration they had only four
days training going into the
game.
"I must commend my play-
ers as they went out and played
to the very end. They showed
great character and resilience.
With such attitude going into
the final I don't see why we
can't be victorious." The
Rastafari coach told Chronicle
Sport.
'Overseas' is hopeful that
his main attacking force of Gre-
gorv 'Jackie Chan' Richardson
and Travis 'Zaro' Grant will lift
their game as "a lot will depend
on their individual skills". Both


squandered no less than five
clear-cut chances between them
in last Tlhursday's semi-final
against Camiptown.
Coach Jones is however
cautious of his opponents: "Ti-
gers will be no pushover. They
will come prepared for us be-
cause they have the skills to
match us. It will be a tight one,
but we are confident of vic-
tory.
"'We must defend well,
especially our young goal-
keeper Shemroy Arthur who
must be at his best. Along
with our most experienced
player Omali Nassy at
sweeper back we should be
able to hold our composure in
defence."
Spearheading Pele's chal-
lenge in midfield will be captain
Shawn 'Fatso' Bishop with
support from Sheik Kamal,
Troy Kellman and 'Zaro' Grant
while up front 'Jackie Chan'. in
his farewell game before leaving
for Barbados on Tuesday. will
get support from Linden
Simmonds and Calvin Myers.


The defence will be completed
by Solomon Austin at left back
and on the right it will be
'Schumakka' Liverpool.
The final which will see the
winner collecting half-a-million
dollars in cash will be preceded
by the third place play-off be-
tween Camptown and Conquer-

NUTRITION

INFORMATION OF

MISINFORMATION

(CONTINUED)

FOODS FROM ANIMALS
4. Red meats are unhealthy. Red meats have been labelled
as unhealthy primarily because of the fat and cholesterol con-
tent. However, red meats are an important source of vitamins,
especially the B vitamins, and minerals such as iron and zinc.
Iron is of critical importance in the diets of Caribbean people
because of persistent iron-deficiency anaemia in some sub-
groups. There are many kinds of red meats and the fat and cho-
lesterol content vary depending on the source and the part of
the animal. Some cuts of meat have more 'marbling' of fat -
that is, the extent to which fat is intertwined in the lean meat.
Red meats can be made healthier by removing as much visible
fat as possible before cooking, and choosing a cooking method
that will not increase the amount of fat in the meat.
5. Dried skimmed milk powder will cause diarrhoea. The
diarrhoea that may follow the consumption of skimmed milk
may be the result of a number of possible mechanisms at work.
The main problem may be lactose intolerance, which means that
you experience gastro-intestinal distress, including diarrhoea, af-
ter drinking skimmed milk because of the insufficient breakdown
of lactose in skimmed milk. Fortunately, lactose-reduced or non-
milk products as well as Lactaid and other similar products are
now available in many Caribbean countries to address this prob-
lem. Despite having sufficient lactase the enzyme that breaks
down lactose some persons may still experience symptoms
of lactose intolerance after using skimmed milk. The reasons
are unclear, but it is believed that fat normally slows down di-
gestion and since this is absent from skimmed milk, its diges-
tion could be speeded up, causing gastro-intestinal disturbances,
including diarrhoea. Another possible reason for the diarrhoea
is the quality of either the water and/or cleanliness of the uten-
sils and dishes that were used for mixing or drinking. If the wa-
ter and equipment used for mixing were not clean, this would
mean that the resulting reconstituted dried skim milk would con-
tain germs or bacteria from these sources and diarrhoea could
result. Further, diarrhoea could also result if the milk powder is
not mixed correctly, that is, if too much of the milk powder is
used with too little water resulting in a mixture that is too strong.

STAPLES
6. Brown bread is always the healthier choice. Brown bread
is generally expected to be made from whole-wheat or whole-
grain flour. Whole wheat/whole grain breads, although they do
not usually have fewer calories, contain high levels of insoluble
dietary fibre or roughage that helps with elimination of waste
and the prevention of colon cancer. In addition, dietary fibre
adds bulk to the diet and contributes to feeling full (satiety) for
some time after eating. Dietary fibre helps to control diabetes
and weight gain. It is possible for these reasons that whole
wheat breads are considered healthier than breads made with
white flour. Unfortunately, some products labelled 'brown bread'
really contain a minute amount of whole wheat with added cara-
mel colouring to give them the brown colour.
7. Green banana/fig is rich in iron. Iron is one of the miner-
als needed to build blood. However, green banana/fig is a poor
source of iron. One serving (two green bananas or 65 g) has
only 0.6 mg iron. The richest food source of iron is liver which
provides 3.4 mg per 2 oz/60g portion. It is therefore inadvis-
able to rely on green banana as a source of iron. The colour
change that is observed during or after cooking is the result of a
chemical reaction between the food and the cooking environ-
ment, and does not indicate high iron content. Some good food
sources of iron are dried peas, dried beans and seeds, dark green
leafy vegetables, products made from iron-enriched flour or corn-
meal, breadfruit and cooked enriched rice. However, it must be
noted that the body is unable to use iron efficiently from plant-
based foods (non-haem iron) compared with the iron present in
animal-based haemm iron) foods. Plant-based foods need to be
eaten at the same time as foods high in vitamin C to help with
iron absorption.

VEGETABLES
8. Beets (beetroot) are rich in iron and will help to build
.the blood. The reddish colour of this vegetable is associated with
the colour of blood, thus the perception that beets are rich in
iron. One-half cup boiled, sliced beet provides only 0.67 mg of
iron compared to V2 cup of cooked 'greens' which has 2.5 mg
iron. Beets are therefore a poor source of iron. Remember that
the body is unable to use non-haem iron well by itself. Foods
rich in Vitamin C need to e consumed at the same time to en-
hance iron absorption.

GET HELP, GET THE FACTS
One of the many reliable sources for accurate nutrition in-
formation is the food label. Consumers can use this informa-
tion to educate themselves and to help make healthy food
choices. A nutrition label also has clear information with which
to support health claims. If you need help with understanding
food labels, or clarifying any nutrition information that seems
doubtful, you are advised to get in touch with a trained nutri-
tionist and/or dietitian who can usually be found within your
Ministry of Health. Such a person will be able to guide you. In
addition, most of the main hospitals in your country may have,

of the place. filling out of a
standard 'Client Information'
form.
According to Verbeke, this
information helps her to
determine what kind of therapy
is best for the client. The first
part of an interesting disclaimer
at the bottom of the form,
which the client must assign
his/her name to. reads:

intended experience of what always liked massage; up until


three years ago, she practised
occasionally on friends
whatever she learned from a
massage book she had.
In late 2002, when the St.
Joseph Mercy Hospital offered
a 'Swedish Massage' course
under the tutelage of Sister
Rose-Ellen Li, an American,
Verbeke jumped at the chance.
Months later, she was to certify
herself for another course, this
time in 'Trigger Point' therapy.
She then quit her job and went
into business for herself.
"I decided that I wouldn't
do anything that I didn't feel
comfortable with," says
Verbeke. She took out classified
ads in the newspapers and soon
enough business started coming
in.
"I had many calls," she
says, "when I first started. In
the beginning was a whole lot."
Unfortunately,
however, most of
the calls were for the
kind of massage
service that Verbeke
didn't offer,
something that gave
rise to the second
part of the disclaimer
on her client
information form,
which reads:
"... I also understand that
if 1 make any sexually
suggestive remarks or behave in
a sexual manner, the massage
will immediately be terminated
and I will be expected to pay
for the massage session."
Verbeke says that most of
her clients are men and in the
past she has had to, as
promised in the disclaimer,
immediately terminate massage
sessions because of unwanted
advances.
Most clients that she
encounters however, ,ao pooplo.

industry yet to

develop
Verbeke says that while
there are other people or
businesses that offer massages
in Guyana. massage as an
industry has yet to develop in
Guyana. Although she prefers
to stick with local clientele, a
good proportion of her
customers are tourists, people
who come from countries
where there is a bit more
enlightenment about the
positive effects of massage
therapy.
Despite this, however,
Verbeke has no intention of
trying to significantly increase
her client base. She says that the
homey atmosphere that she has
cultivated is something that she
intends to keep; too many
clients in a more professional
setting would mean that she
would have to be running her
service more like a business.
This she said could lead to stress
and impact on the quality of
attention she pays to her
clients.
"I can't have a busy
regimen; I need to be calm in
order to make a client feel
good," she says.
Other than fulfilling what is
essentially a private passion,
she says. what her massage
service does is basically pay the
bills and give her time to spend
painting; she feels that because
of the demands of her work life,
she has badly neglected her art,
something she needs to address.
Finally, we asked Verbeke
what she does when she is

According to a leaflet titled

spices to make a spicy, frothy
drink.
Later, it is said, Spanish


conquistadors
(conquerors) took
the beans to main-
land Spain where rtf
new recipes were cre-

brew's popularity would
eventually spread and gain in
popularity throughout Europe,
arriving on the shores of En-
gland around 1520.
Since then, it is ar-

turies later, in 1828 to be pre-
cise, the Dutch chemist,
Johannes van Houten, would
stumble upon a method of ex-
tracting the bitter-tasting
fat, usually referred to as
'cocoa butter', from the
roasted ground beans, in the
hope of making a smoother and
more palatable brew.
What he didn't know at the

Fry's, the British cocoa

1875 when Swiss manufac-

a way of improving upon
the flavour by adding pow-
dered milk.

DATED: March 13 2005


turned to his home in another
city. Later, I heard someone in
a big black truck was stopping
by, but I was never home to see
who it was.
One day I was home. The
truck pulled up, and he asked
me to go fishing with him. I
won't go into huge details, but
I had a lot of fun and a couple
of beers. Neither of us wanted
the label of boyfriend and girl-
friend so we didn't use it. He
has taken something from me
that I cannot take back. How-
ever I don't regret the decision
1 made.
He may be coming back in
a few months, but he will for
sure when he graduates in
December and works as a
mechanic. He is 17; he wants
kids when he is 18 or 19. I am
a very grounded person. Family
and schooling are important to
me, but I would consider
moving in with him and not
going to college.
I don't need someone to
sound like my mom and preach
to me. I need someone to step
into my shoes and understand
what I am thinking and feeling.
I think I love him. I don't know
for sure he feels the same way.
He doesn't like opening up
much, and even if he did, how
will I know it's the truth?
He's not perfect. I have for-
given him way too many times
for things as small as not call-
ing when he said he would, to
things as big as full-blown
cheating. But really is it cheat-
ing without the label? I need
some good advice. 1 hope you're

up to this one.

HALEY

nHaley, when
Benjamin
Franklin was
17, he sailed
from Boston to Philadelphia.
His passage didn't include
meals so Ben, a vegetarian,
brought his own provisions.
When the ship became be-
calmed, everyone ran out of
food. Other passengers threw a
line over the side and caught
cod.
Ben's vegetarian morals
prevented him from eating fish,
but his hunger drew him to the
side of a cook gutting a cod. In-
side the cod were smaller fish.
Ben changed his mind. If you
can eat one another, he rea-
soned, then'I can eat you. Later
Ben observed how convenient a
faculty reason is, since it enables
us to make or find a reason for
anything we have a mind to do.
Husband and wife, mother


and child, best friends, and
neighbours are all established re-
lationships. You are having sex
with a young man who doesn't
even call you his girlfriend. How
would you label that?
You've found a reason to
give up college for a man you
cannot trust. Perhaps you think
he's good-looking, or you think
bad boys are hot, or you don't
think you deserve better. His
justification may be something
you can't even imagine. He
could think she's not my girl-
friend so I don't owe her any-
thing, not even respect.
Many women desire to
make any man they are intimate
with "the one," in spite of all
evidence to the contrary. It is a
pattern which repeats itself
again and again. Ben Franklin's
reason for discarding his beliefs
was hunger. What's yours?

term.
But the freedom of the busi-
nessman Anthony De Cruz was
short lived.
The State appealed in rela-
tion to sentence, with the result
that the Full Court, Constituted
by Chief Justice Cecil Kennard
(as he then was) and Justice
Claudette La Bennett, which
heard the appeal, set aside the
ruling of the Magistrate.
The Full Court fined the
businessman $1,000 and or-
dered him to serve one year in
jail.
At the hearing of the appeal,
Mr. Mortimer Coddette repre-
sented the businessman while
Ms. Yonnette Cummings, the
then Deputy Director of Public
Prosecutions, appeared for the
respondent, P.C. Francis
Knights.
According to Section 16 (2)
of the Fire-Arms Act, Chapter
16:05, as amended by the Fire-
arms (Amendment) Act 1991
(N. 23 of 1991):-


Subject to this Act, if any
person purchases, acquires or
has in his possession any fire-
arm or ammunition to which
this part applies without hold-
ing a fire-arm licence in force at
the time, or otherwise than as
authorised by such licence, or,
in the case of ammunition in
quantities in excess of those so
authorised, he shall be liable to:
on summary conviction to
a fine of not less than $1,000
nor more than $5,000 together


with imprisonment of not less
than one year nor more than
three years; Provided the Court
may, for special reasons to be
recorded in writing impose any
other sentence.
In the judgment delivered
by the Chief Justice
Kennard, (who later became
the Chancellor of the Judi-
ciary, it was said that the
businessman was charged in
the Magistrate's Court with
the offence of Unlawful Pos-
session of Ammunition in
that he had in his possession
on Sunday, June 6, 1993 a
quantity of ammunition to
wit thirty-six .38 bullets.
He pleaded guilty before the
Magistrate who had ordered that
he pay a fine of $3,000 or serve
three weeks imprisonment in
default.
The facts recorded by the
Magistrate reveal that the police
had gone to the home of the ap-
pellant at Sugar Cane Avenue,
South Ruimveldt Park, Greater


ALTHOUGH cus
todial penalty is
mandatory for
offences under
the Fire-arms Act, (unless spe-
cial circumstances could be
proved), in 1996, a businessman
who pleaded guilty to unlawful
possession of ammunition was
fined $3,000 by a Magistrate
and let off without a prison

Chairman
Better Hope/LBI NDC


Georgetown, where they found
the ammunition referred to in
the particulars of the charge for
which the appellant had no li-
cence.
In mitigation it was stated
that the appellant was a busi-
nessman, 42 years old with a
wife and four children. The
Magistrate fined De Cruz and
imposed the monetary penalty.
According to the Chief Jus-
tice, the State appealed against
the penalty imposed by the
Magistrate. It was argued before
the Full Court on behalf of the
State that under the Fire-arms
Act, imprisonment is mandatory
as no special reasons had been
disclosed before the Magistrate
to justify the imposition of a
non-custodial sentence.
In his memorandum of rea-
sons for the decision, the Mag-
istrate stated:-
"After a further examination
of all the facts and the law per-
taining to the charge, I agree that
the appeal should be allowed as
to sentence."
The C.J. added: "However,
despite what the Magistrate has
stated, it was for us to decide
whether or not "special rea-
sons" had in fact existed justi-
fying the imposition of a non-
custodial sentence.
"There is no local authority
as far as I am aware, as to what
constitutes "special reasons" in
relation to a charge of this na-
ture. However, I am minded to
adopt the principles used in re-
lation to Road Traffic Offences.
In R -v- Crossen (1939), N.I
106 the King's Bench Division
of Northern Ireland held:
"A 'special reason' within


sider the following as constitut-
ing 'special reasons' within the
proviso of the Section under
which the appellant was
charged before the Magistrate:-


the exception is one which is
special to the facts of the par-
ticular case that is special to the
facts, which constitutes the of-
fence. It is, in other words, a
mitigation or extenuating circum-
stance, amounting in law to a
defence to the charge, yet di-
rectly connected with the com-
mission of the offence and one
which the Court ought properly
to take into consideration when
imposing punishment.
"A circumstance peculiar to
the offender as distinguished
from the offence is not 'special
reason' within the exception."
That passage, the C.J. said,
was approved by Lord
Goddard C.J. in Whittal -v-
Kurby (1946) 2 AER 552 where
it was held, in relation to a
charge of driving a motor vehicle
while under the influence of
drink to such an extent as to be
incapable of having proper con-
trol of the vehicle, that (1) a
'special reason' within the ex-
ception is one which is special
to the facts which constituted
the offence, and not one which
was special to the offender as
distinguished from the offence;
(ii) no consideration of financial
or family hardship or of the of-
fender being before the Court
for the first time, could be re-
garded as a 'special reason'.
Continuing, the Chief Jus-
tice said: "Before us, Mr.
Coddette had asked us to con-


(1) Offence was
committed since 24th June 1993
(Court noted that appellant was
on bail prior to the appeal com-
ing up for hearing).
(2) No further prob-
lem with police since the insti-
tution of the present charge,
(3) Appellant 45
years old.
(4) Five (5) children

Guyana.
(5) Businessman.
(6) Pleaded guilty


before Magistrate has shown
contrition,
(7) Owner of two
lorries and conveys foodstuff
with them for miners in the in-
terior.
(8) Ammunition was
acquired over a period of time.
"In his submission before
us, Mr. Coddette had actually
conceded that the Magistrate
had erred in not imposing a
custodial sentence, but con-
tended that the Court should
adopt a sympathetic approach
and refrain from interfering with
the penalty imposed by the
Magistrate as the charge had
been hanging over the head of
the appellant for over two
years.
"We were informed by Mr.
Coddette that the appellant was
represented before the Magis-
trate by Mr. Donald Robinson,
S.C., so that there can be no
question of the appellant not in-
tending to plead guilty, even
though in fairness to Mr.
Coddette he did not raise the is-
sue of appellant being wrongly
advised to plead guilty or not
intending to plead guilty before
the Magistrate.
"We have considered the
facts urged on behalf of the
appellant, both before the
Magistrate and before us, and
have concluded that they are

DEAN'S


brief magnificent film career


one of Hollywood's
best and most memo
rable actors with
merely three colour films he
made for Warner Brothers. 'East
Of Eden' -1954; 'Rebel Without
A Cause' 1955: and 'Giant' -
1956. Two weeks after com-
pleting 'Giant', Dean, speeding
with a friend to a motor racing
event, was carelessly collided
into by another young driver
and died within an hour at the
age of 24.
Dean was so loved by intel-
ligent young and old alike that
the tragic circumstances of his
end made him more famous than
understood as an actor. Actu-
ally, Dean's life as an actor and
everyday person was extremely
ordinary and real. His family
comprised of farmers, and he
grew up in farmland Indiana, re-
maining a down-to-earth person
even after his films made him
quite well known. Acting was
only a part of Dean's real con-

cern for people, and his fame as
a person is preserved by beau-
tiful cherished books of photos
which show him at the peak of
his fame dressed in old clothes,
cap, boots, on the muddy side-
walks of his small town, and
undistinguishable from the poor,
simple, hardworking folk, young
and- old, he converses with.
Other photos show him in New
York, where, suffering from
chronic insomnia, he often left
his tiny apartment crammed
with books on the arts and LP
records of international music
and jazz, and walked the grimy
East End New York streets all
night, when not taking lessons
in Bongo playing, hanging out
with black beatniks, or the black
singer-actress Eartha Kitt, who
became a close friend he first
met at ballet classes.
Dean's firm relevance and
freshness as an actor has sur-
vived because his three film-
roles speak beyond North

causes, but in individual charac-
ter, or personality traits. In 'East
Of Eden', Dean erupted con-
vincingly with profound anger
in the role of Cal, the younger
son of his stubborn father,
played superbly by Raymond
Burr. Burr's wife and mother of
his two boys, has left him to
struggle in. bitterness with his


failing business, and the boys do
not really know what has be-
come of their mother.
Dean feels guilty because he
is attracted to his respectable
older brother's girlfriend, but
they grow to love each other as
she realises that Dean's brother
is really pursuing a false sense
of respectability through her,
because what he really loves is
conventional social attitudes.
This is the crucial lesson of the
film: our love for ideas,
opinions, attitudes towards
people, rather than people or
individuals themselves. When
Dean discovers his mother is a
wealthy hooker and borrows
money from her to help his
father, he is bitterly spurned;
when he destroys his brother's
conventional illusions by taking
him to his prostitute mother,
his brother goes insane. This
film ends with Dean and his
brother's ex-girlfriend finding a

of each other. 'East
Of Eden' is a
masterpiece novel written by
John Steinbeck, one of
America's Noble Prize socialist
writers, who loved Elia Kazan's
movie version of his book.
With 'Rebel Without A
Cause', directed by Nicholas
Ray, Hollywood's youth-ori-
ented director of several film
masterpieces, Dean along
with young Nathalie Wood
and Sal Minoe, made magic
on screen with their 'hip',
fashionable, and beautifully
compassionate friendship.
Dean acts as the quiet but
daring and intelligent teen-
ager whose parents avoid fac-
ing and answering his crucial
questions; Wood plays the
maturing young girl demand-
ing to be popular among
males, and Minoe acts as the
wonderful. mixed-race youth
needing parental guidance
more than cheques from his
absent father. This film is es,
sential viewing for both
-'youths and adults, especially
parents and- law enforcers,
chiefly Detectives. In fact, it
has been repeatedly pointed
out that the one level-headed
adult Dean could rely on and
respect for advice and guid-
ance, is the film's chief De-
tective. This- film remains
everfresh .today by showing
Sal Minoe as the youth acci-
dentally killed-by'police be-,-,


minutes, and makes most
Hollywood films of today look
like trash. Elizabeth Taylor is
the fiery plain-spoken girl
whose mother wants her to be
a social climber. She marries
Rock Hudson who is brilliant as
the rancher in love only with is
lifestyle and Texas. Taylor
quickly sides with the dark-
skinned poverty-stricken
Mexican peasant workers,
whose land has become the rich
estate her .husband's family
owns. Dean encourages Taylor
to see the racism, inequality and
injustice around her, while he
secretly seduces Carrol Baker,
Hudson's wild young sister.
Baker- bequeaths Dean an
apparently worthless piece of
land which turns out to be rich
in oil, making Dean a millionaire
overnight.
What made 'Giant' an enor-
mously loved family film in
Guyana, (when. it played alone
at Georgetown cinemas, tickets
and seats vanished quickly), was
the fact that it reflected the
plantation history and economy
of the nation, along with all its'
social rivalry and bigotries.
Dean's ability io profoundly act
out how wealth can change the
human personality from humil-
ity to disgusting behaviour is a
pleagure-to watch in 'Giant'. In
the film's most brilliant scene,
Dean arrives-at Hudson's ranch

prints his black hand on the lily
white front post before Hudson
and family. Hudson punches
him and he reels away hurt,
then suddenly swings back and
delivers two swift punches to
Hudson's stomach, before stag-


gearing off.
James Dean remains
perhaps the most beautiful,
talented, and serious actor
Hollywood has ever known.
Dean's good friend Nathalie
Wood, once said Dean cared
mostly for making good films,
not enormous salaries. This


was no doubt proven during
Dean's first business
meeting to calculate his
profits, when he became so

boots up on the desj before
him and fell asleep in his
chair. ,

BETTY LEWIS



(LEWIZ ALYAN)


LITERARY
~*


1924

by Petamber Persaud

BETTY Lewis was so
visible a social and
community worker
that it's implausible
she was so little known as a
writer. And yet it is probable
in a world where writers are
known to have suffered such
indignity, yes, it is likely in a
society where little respect in
given to the writer.
Lewis' contribution to
Guyanese literature as a woman
writer was substantial and
significant. As a novelist, she is
one of three East Indian woman
writers to publish in that genre.
(The other two are Janice
Shinebourne and Narmala
Shewcharan.) More
importantly, Lewis also bore
the distinction of been the
first Guyanese woman
biographer. That alone in a
society which to date has
produced only a handful of
writing in that category,
almost all written by men,
should have propelled her to
national acclaim. But then her
low profile as a writer may have
been by humility and by design.
Betty Lewis wrote under the
non de plume Lewiz Alyan.
Lewiz Alyan wrote
approximately eight books, the
number this author was able to
trace, all published locally by the
writer herself. In fact, she was a
publishing industry for she even
did her own cover designs and
illustrations for those books.
'Giant of the Past', a
biography of Wilfred Goulding
Stoll was one of her publications
that was typeset. Her novel
contains two exquisite pen and
ink drawings.
Included in her output are
three invaluable volumes of
biographies. "Biographies,"
declared Kenneth George, a
former Chief Justice of
Guyana, in his forward to
'Giant of the Past', "can be
foundation stones on which
nations achieve
greatness...fire the
imagination and feed the
enthusiasm of present and
future generations'.
In a series of books titled
'Grass Roots of Guyana', Alyan
wrote to correct the regrettable
act of society "praising the
dead", heaping commendations
on persons after they have
passed away. In her introduction
to volume one, she felt "the
local boy made good" and local
girl too "should be rewarded by
seeing the record of their own
contribution while they are still


-2000

in this world, and that the public
may read and appreciate their
efforts."
As a home maker, business
executive, social worker and
writer, Betty Lewis lived an
action-packed and fast-paced
life. Asked how she did it and
she would have replied,
"necessary knows no law."
In 1940, her father brought
Mount Everard, a saw mill in the
North West District, which
Lewis would eventually head. At
first though, she was tasked with
"budgeting and stretching" fresh
meats, greens and ice until next
shipment from Georgetown.
This period living among the
Amerindians and "enamoured of
the scenery of the Barima River
forming the valley between the
two mountains" provided
material for at least two of her
books, 'Tales Strange but True'
and 'The Return of the Half
Caste'.
The saw mill was brought
to Georgetown in 1949 when
her father died. The following
year she was married to
Foster Lewis, a former
Accountant at the Daily
Chronicle, who became the
Accountant to the family
business. When in 1966 her
husband died, she was
entrusted with that post. Betty
Lewis went back to school,
Blackman's School of
Accountancy, and with the
help of family-friend, Wilfred
Stoll, she effectively filled the
bill. Eventually, she was made
Secretary/Director and finally
Managing/Director. Lewis was
also a manager of Timcrete
Products Limited and was a
major shareholder in
Guyana Refrigeration
Limited (GRL).
Along with her taxing busi-
ness constraints, she devoted
time and energy to the better-
ment of society, joining numer-
ous charitable organizations and
even gravitating to leadership
positions. Lewis was the Chair-
man of the Lunch Hour Com-
mittee of the Children's Dorcas
Club. She was the Public Rela-
tions Officer and Chairman of
the Complaints Committee for
the Archer Home. She gave vol-
untary service to the Polio Re-
habilitation Centre, the
Georgetown Hospital League of'
Friends where she was made the
Chairman of the Fundraising
Committee, the Best Hospital,
West Demerara, and various hos-
pitals and clinics in the hinter-
land of Guyana. She assisted the,
Muslim Boys Orphanage,, of

Betty Amina Lewis also
known as Lewiz Alyan was born
November 21, 1924 in
Georgetown, daughter of Sam
and Amina Ally. She was raised
in a religious atmosphere from
both sides of the family. Such
influence constrained to
compose the book, 'Namaz: a
pillar of Islam' which she
published in 1990.
Lewis attended the
Charlestown Convent and the
St. Joseph High School, after
which she led an "idle-rich sort
of existence" of painting and
embroidering. Innocuous a
beginning as it may seem, Lewis
made her mark as a painter and
will be remembered for her
tastefully hand-painted greeting
cards.
In 1993, she published her


first novel, 'The Return of the
Half Caste', set in the 1940s.
exposing exploitation of the
Indigenous peoples and how the
language barrier could be blamed
for that and many other abuses
heaped upon them by rapacious
entrepreneurs. Her other books
are 'Straight and Narrow' and
'Sunset's Trail'.
Betty Lewis surmounted
great odds in life three
deaths in the family at crucial
moments in the history of the
saw mill, discrimination and
alienation with her marriage
to Foster Lewis and
challenges in a man's domain
of business. Sadly, after a
selfless life of caring and
sharing, she was stricken by
a serious illness, succumbing
in 2000. But through her
writings, she has left an
immortal legacy to the grass
roots of Guyana.

T MUST be the labba and
the creek water.
Well! How else could we
explain this sudden about-face
of theirs, other than to con-
cur with the age-old adage
that once you've eaten of the
labba, a succulent little animal
native to these shores, and
drunk of the waters of our
many creeks, you were bound
to return to Guyana.
When last we spoke with
Joyce and David Davis, which
was back in October 2003, they
were gung-ho about their immi-
nent cross-Atlantic voyage to
the sunny Mediterranean aboard
their 38-ft sloop, 'Mood Indigo',
named after one of the Duke
(Duke Ellington)'s signature
pieces co-written in the early 30s
with clarinetist Barney Bigard.


As the couple, who besides
having a penchant for jazz mu-
sic are consummate proponents
of the art form as well, had said
at the time, having had their fill
of traversing the length and
breadth of the Caribbean for well
nigh on II years and learnt all
they possibly could about seri-
ous sailing:
"Now we think we can wean

nean and the food there."

a bad thing after all. "Naive is a
good thing, in a way," she says,
"because it keeps your adrenalin
up. If you're constantly fearful,
you may very well lose sight of
your perspective."


QUIET CONTEMPLATION
But to return to what may
have led them to choose Guyana
when they could have had their
pick of any number of countries
in the Caribbean they were fa-
miliar with, including Trinidad,
David, who had been sitting
there quietly not saying much,


'...after sailing for 12 years, all of a sudden, we
looked around as we're about to set sail to make our
first Atlantic crossing on our way to Turkey, and saw
that we had grown old; that our bodies had become
tired with each passing year ... and we didn't know
that we were there.' Joyce Davis


interjected, saying:
"I think it's the people, re-
ally, their friendliness; it's just
wonderful. And the nature; it's
not over-built: it's not over-
populated. It's the kind of place
you can have quiet contempla-
tion ..."
Joyce, on the other hand,
felt it may have had to do with
the rapid development currently
taking place in the region, even
in those countries they had come
to like for their quaintness.
Though they never stayed
in any one place long enough
to develop the sort of bond that
would make them want to
contemplate settling, or to
have favourites, she said,
there were a few they did ac-
tually take a liking to because
they still managed to retain
much of their history. Among
countries to fall into this cat-


walk in that island, and just cap-
ture history after history after
history."
Grenada, however, will al-
ways have a special place in
their heart since, according to
Joyce, "it is where our learning
curve started," meaning where
they really began to get the hang
of seamanship and to meet fel-
low cruisers.
Said she: "For three years
we didn't know not even a
cruiser. We met no one, and we
were bucking seas out there by
ourselves... until we arrived in
Grenada."
With Trinidad and Tobago,
their long years of association
had as much to do with the
much-needed shelter it offered
during the annual hurricane
season as with the easy
camaraderie they developed
its peoples. With the island


Dn 'the Mighty Essequibo' at the
helm of an expedition they were
;n the process of planning, which
eventually did come off. There
was also talk at the time of
sprucing up the boat a bit. As
oyce put it, "doing the 'woman'
hing, adding a bit of aesthet-
ics.... like reupholstering...little
touches."
So you can well imagine our

surprise when we learnt that the
merican pair, who once de-
scribed themselves as life-time,
live-aboard cruisers, and their
ane-mast, fibreglass boat as "our


permanent home", had aban-
doned that idea altogether and
was now making preparations to
drop anchor for good, and take
up residence here.
Speaking with the Sunday
Chronicle at Le Meridien Pe-
gasus two Fridays ago where
they stayed so as to be able to
keep a weekend date they had
with jazz fans there and at the
Sidewalk Cafe, Joyce said
when asked about the sudden
loss of their zest for the ad-
venture:
"Very easily, Linda. What
had happened was that after
sailing for 12 years, all of a sud-
den, we looked around as we're
about to set sail to make our first
Atlantic crossing on our way to
Turkey, and saw that we had
grown old; that our bodies had
become tired with each passing
year ... and we didn't know that

we were there."
Both Joyce and David, who
were high-flying executives in
their respective fields, had de-
cided upon their retirement 13
years ago to dispose of all their
movable assets, buy themselves
a seaworthy boat, and sail the
world. That was David's fan-
tasy. Joyce, who is an adven-
turer at heart, just came along for
the ride.
The original plan was that
they would first head to Panama,
and from there make their lei-
surely way around the world,
calling at the ports of all those
various countries they had gone
to on business while pursuing
their professional careers.
As it turned out, they were
not the accomplished sailors
they thought they were, as, up
until that point, all they had been
were what is called, 'day sail-
ors'.
As Joyce, who turns 57 in
May, recalled in our 2003 inter-
view:
"My very first open-water
overnight, we were in 45-knot
winds; 12-foot seas. We lost
our engine; the wind was
right on the nose. That meant
we could not sail straight, so
we had to (because the
weather was 'right on the
nose', that means on the bow
of the boat) tack. That means
we had to pick up the wind
...sailing this way and
that...thus making the jour-
ney four times as long. So, an
18-hour sail took us four
days."
That was in 1993, she said.
"We remember it well, because
we had a lot of close calls."
Today, she does not feel their
inexperience back then was'such

Ms. Miriam Loy of the United States wrote to us indicating that she was the girl in the bridal
gown. Her sister was wearing the "Reynolds foil drc,;s"
"I went online and recognized myself and my sister in the Reynolds foil dress. I was wearing a
bridal gown. I was only 19yrs then. It is my desire and my kids to have a picture...and to say thanks
to Mr. John F. Hatch who was the photographer at Kwakwani," Ms. Loy wrote.
"Thank you. This article has my large family, grandchildren in-laws etc. very excited and it has
brought us more excitement than you could,ever imagine.
"Thanking you. and do conttinue with y6nr.inwoItkOfjouftiaflhlis4hfsh'addeA : z.

Montserrat, both renowned
the world over for their fa-

Asked what determines their
length of stay in any one place,
she said:
"It could be the beauty; it
could be the quiet; it could be the
food a lot of times. If we're in
Martinique, we stay because of
the cheese and wine. In St Lucia,
we stay around the jazz set and
watch others with the sailing ac-
tivity. Nevis takes us back to the

increasingly coming under
threat of late during this
period, it is largely being felt,
particularly by the boating
community, that it is not the
safe haven it once was.
As to what will happen with
the sloop once their new home-
stead on the Essequibo River
somewhere in the vicinity of the
Mazaruni Prison is completed
and they have settled in, Joyce
declared, with as much equanim-
ity as she could muster given
the circumstances:
"Mood Indigo, the sailing
vessel, is retired along with us.
She has dropped her anchor in
Guyana. We're going to build a
nice house that we can enjoy and
keep Mood Indigo docked
there."
Among other activities
the couple has in mind is
sharing their vast experi-
ence whether in boating or
else with whomsoever it is
that may have an interest
in such things, and to de-
vote some quality time to
learning the rivers in their
immediate environs and
getting to know the people
and township of Bartica
better. 1
"We've always involved
ourselves in every island or
country that we're in, and in
my case a lot of times with
young people and youth. So
if there is any way we can use
Mood Indigo, maybe teaching
nautical terms or some sailing
experiences, then the vessel is
there."
Will she ever set sail again?
By way of a reply, she
slowly moved her head from
side to side, employing a uni-
versally accepted gesture that
left no one in doubt as to what
she meant.

PERIODONTITIS


(CONT'D) TheDentist Advises


O OCCASIONALLY,
topics in the field of
dentistry are dis-
cussed and new ideas venti-
lated in international fora.
I\vo years ago, for example,
leading dentists in Europe
met at the first European
Workshop on Periodontology
to update themselves on the
latest about periodontal
(gum) disease.
Some of what came out of'
the activity is examined. Peri-
odontal diseases which is com-
monly called gum disease is the
principal cause of tooth loss.
represent inflammatory lesions
mediated by host parasite inter-
actions resulting in loss of con-
nective tissue fibres attachment
to the root surface. Since the
cause-effect relationship has
been established betweenn the
accumulation of bacterial plaque
on the teeth and the develop-
ment of gingivitis, there is no
doubt that plaque is the essen-
tial factor for the initiation of
periodontal inflammation and
disease.
If plaque is allowed to ac-
cumulate for prolonged periods
of time, it will mature ecologi-
cally in a predictable pattern.


I
I
I


This maturation process may in
many, but not all individuals,
lead to progression of some le-
sions from a localised to a
chronic inflammatory response,
the response characteristic of
adult periodontitis.
Local factors, for example,
oral hygiene standards, tooth
anatomy and position, and the
presence of fillings with and
without over changing margins
may influence the maturation
process of plaque by changing
the ecological conditions in the
subgungival environment.
Changing conditions in the eco-
system may influence the
colonisation of specific bacteria.
Systemic factors, such as,
hormonal changes during preg-
nancy, puberty and in diabetes
and impairment and in the im-
mune status (AIDS) etc, may
also affect the rate of progres-
sion of gum disease. Finally.
smoking habits and stress have
also been discussed as possible
factors and influence.
Chronic adult periodontitis
is obviously a disease with a
multifactorial cause and may be
considered as an opportunistic
infection. As opposed to a clas-
sical infection, the germs are as-


sociated in low proportions
with the type of organism's
characteristic for healthy tissue
conditions. If a change in the
ecological environment in the
mouth occurs favouring the dis-
case producing bacteria, oppor-
tunity is given to those germs
capable of eliciting the disease
process.
Trealnment of an opportu-
nistic infection is therefore not
only directed at the elimination
of an infectious agent but rather.
at the alteration of the ecologi-
cal niche, thereby reducing the
proportion of pathogenic bacte-
ria below the individual's
threshold for disease. It is with
this concept in mind that the di-
agnosis of the different condi-
tions was discussed.
Based in part on the age
of the patient, four categories
were suggested. These are:
gingivitis, adult periodontitis
and necrotising periodontitis.
Each of these conditions do
not in general terms cause
patients to panic as they may
not cause significant discom-
fort like say a toothache. But
the overall picture indicates
that it is the single most
threatening disease for teeth.

OUR ( GEOGRAPHY
TODAY




ATMOSPHERE





REVEALED

Kriih David

N A solar system dominated by jovian and formative planets, the Earth, like Venus and
Mars, is classified as terrestrial due to its small size, rocky surfaces and mature atmo
sphere. But unlike all the other planets of our solar system, the Earth is endowed with
an atmosphere which sustains life. This unique occurrence was in tandem with the small
size of Earth and subsequent meager gravitational pull on the lighter gases of its atmosphere in its
formative years. This therefore resulted in the loss of much of the atmospheric hydrogen to outer
space and the present dominance by such gases as nitrogen and oxygen.
Secondly, the large
quantities of atmospheric fira'-, e .. ly r. 0 r .- oe
carbon dioxide, now "
characteristic of many ,
planets like Venus and Mars. outging
were removed from our
atmosphere by plants for s on"
food synthesis, by ocean
dwelling creatures to make .
their body shells and yet
larger quantities remained
trapped in the oceans and in
rocks, such as limestone.
In the end, or the
beginning, the earth's
atmosphere was still
composed of a mixture of .:. i .,: .: e .
gases, but the processes
leading to this unique blend also fragmented the atmosphere into layers. These very layers of the
atmosphere have been working together to regulate the Earth's climate through the efficient budgeting
of incoming and outgoing solar radiation. This efficient budgeting of incoming and outgoing solar
radiation is so achieved when the atmosphere releases to space as much energy as it receives from
space. But this is no simple and straightforward process, for the Earth's ability to trap and release
solar radiation varies tremendously from the equator to the- poles. Essentially, equatorial regions
receive larger quantities of energy from space but release only small fractions to space due to the
presence and trapping effect of plants, ocean.s and clouds. This imbalance as sunummnarised in the
diagram, is the basis for the 'shuffling acts' of our atmosphere in order to maintain equilibrium.
Equilibrium is only achieved when the excess energy from the equatorial regions are transferred, via
winds and ocean currents, to colder latitudes where there is a greater loss of solar radiation to
space.
Such movements subsequently result in counter movements of cold winds and ocean
currents towards the equator. In the end, balance is maintained and temperatures remain
stable and suitable for life. But the movements and counter movements in the atmosphere
in particular, are not erratic and they foster much of the localised climatic phenomena we
either find fascinating or disastrous.
To be continued...


Remembering Dr. Cheddi Jagan
The following is an excerpt of Dr. Jagan's writing:

"Privatization and divestment must be
approached with due care. I was not elected
President to preside over the liquidation ;of
Guyana. I was mandated by the Guyanese
people to rebuild the economy and restore .a
S- decent standard of life for all Guyanese. In all
S my political career, I did not succumb to
pressure to serve narrow partisan interests. I do
i, not intend to do so now. I will not surrender the
interests of the nation for expediency or
short-term gain". (May 1993)

World Water


Day


IN DECEMBER 2003, at its'
58th session, the United Na-
tions -General Assembly
held that 2005-2015 be de-
clared the international De-
cade for Action: 'Water for
life!'
The Water for Life decade
sets the world's goals on a
greater focus on water related
issues, faced by citizens across
the globe..
Every year since 1993,
there is the worldwide obser-
vance of this day on March 22.
Why a World Water Day?
World Water Day is observed so


that you, members of the pub-
lic, could become aware of the
myriad issues revolving around
the quenching of your thirst
with one clean cool glass of wa-
ter.
In the main, there is the
need to focus your attention on
the way you use water or rather
the way water is conserved.
The first water decade from
1981 to 1990 brought water to
over a billion people and sani-
tation to almost 770 million.
However, there is much more
that needs to be done: there re-
mains the challenge of making


water portable (easily accessed)
as well as potable (good enough
to drink)..
Safe water supply and ad-
equate sanitation to protect
health have since formed part of
the core of human rights. Today,
there are almost 1.1 billion
people who have inadequate ac-
cess to water and approximately
2.4 billion without appropriate
sanitation. The need and de-
mand for water has been a driv-
ing force in development
throughout human history. It
should be clear then that if wa-
ter is in crisis, development is

in crisis too.
Practical efforts can help us
to increase worldwide aware-
ness of both the problems and
the solutions for portable and
potable water.

Where is the glass of water?
Water covers more than
three-fourths of the earth's sur-
face. There are five oceans and
many seas on the blue planet
Earth.
These marine water bodies
account for 97 per cent of
earth's water, but you guessed
it, it is all salt. Salt water can-
not be used for drinking, or crop
irrigation, two main engines in
human welfare. We can remove
salt from ocean water but the
process is very expensive.
So it appears water is ev-
erywhere, but is there enough
to drink?
Of the remaining three per
cent of the world's water it is
all fresh and can be used for our
welfare. The catch is however,
that 66 per cent or two per cent
out of this three per cent is in
solid form found in ice caps and
glaciers in the Artic and Antarc-
tic regions. It is because it is
frozen and so far away this per-
centage of fresh water is not
available for use by people,
plants or land animals.
(Why don't we melt it and
use it? You will learn the an-
swer to that on World Ozone
Day)
Essentially therefore, that
leaves one per cent of the
Earth's water in useable form


for all plants, humans and land
animals.

HOW MUCH WATER DO
YOU NEED?
Actually, that depends on
whether you are a man or a
woman.
Your gender is a factor in
determining how much water,
the quantity of water you can
drink. The average male needs
about 12 glasses of water per
day and the average female
needs about nine cups.
Besides gender, other fac-
tors which determine the
quantity of water one needs
include:
Exercise
Temperature
Humidity
Altitude
Diet
Health (Diarrhea and
vomiting cause increased fluid
loss)
Caffeine and or Alcohol
Consumption (Alcohol and Caf-
feine are diuretics which means
they cause water loss and could
increase the risk of dehydration)

Most of the world's ma-
jor rivers are shared by several
countries. These countries need
to share skills and manage areas
where water is stored by natu-
ral processes.
Also, countries are pool-
ing their knowledge on water
saving irrigation technology.
One way this is happening is
that scientists from around the
world are working together to


assess the threat to water (pol-
lution and such like) and ways
of making agriculture use less
water. This cooperation be-
tween countries is essential
when one considers the inequi-
table distribution of fresh water
in the planet.
This day is therefore
used to remind everyone of the.
extreme importance of water for
maintaining the environment and
increasing development in hu-
man societies.

DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that in Ara-
bian countries water is more ex-
pensive than oil?
Next week, we will be ex-
amining water conservation
techniques in Guyana.

You can share your
findings and ideas

ERCAND YOU

"He is risen" is the greeting Christians will offer each other as they go to church this
morning, and tomorrow, on the sea-wall and in other open spaces, kites will rise in the
air, weaving a blanket of flying colours across the sky. ,lic I?
Yesterday, our Hindu brothers and sisters celebrated the Festival V
of Holi, a celebration of Spring, the many colours they sprayed )'
on each other symbolic of the riotous new life and re-birth f "
indicative of the season, and the bounding optimism that goes -
with all this. ( .
This juxtaposition of rites is significant as it binds O'RliS
together two of the major strands of beliefs that make up our national religious
matrix.
At this time, the Ethnic Relations Commission is more than ever mindful of the need for us to
ponder on the imperatives that drive these major faiths sacrifice, atonement and reconciliation.
This holiday weekend is best used for pondering on these, making that extra effort to forgive
and learn to understand those religious tenets that are not of our own faith, and deciding in our
hearts to forgive and be reconciled with each other.
The Commission wishes everyone a blessed Phagwah and a blessed Easter, and prays
that the message of these festivals will become real in our hearts.'

L ast week we began
the discussion on
common tumours
on the animal's
body. We mentioned Seba-
ceous Cysts and tissue devel-
opments between the toes
(Interdigital Cysts) and Warts
and Papillomas. Let's look at
another type of tumour that
can be found on the animal's
skin.

THE LIPOMA
The simplest definition
would be that Lipomas are be-


nign tumours (enlargements) of
adipose (fatty) tissue. They are
often to be found in middle-aged
to elderly dogs and occasionally
in cats. In most cases, we have
found Lipomas to occur in
obese, older bitches. The loca-
tion of these tumours is gener-
ally under the skin of the trunk
and upper legs, usually thighs,
(in that general area where the
legs attach themselves to the
body of the animal.
I have not carried out a sta-
tistical analysis, but empirical
observation during my 36 years


of practice tells me that Dober-
mans and Labradors are the
breeds most affected. This does
not mean that the "common"
breeds are immune to Lipomas.
On the contrary, they seem to
exhibit Lipomas in quite a high
incidence. The scientific litera-
ture on this subject tells us that
older, neutered male Siamese
cats are predisposed to Lipomas
which locate themselves in the
lower abdominal area.
I should mention that these
same smart books have docu-
mented that Lipomas in cats

seem not to be associated with
obesity.
Lipomas typically appear as
soft masses under the skin,
which allow themselves to be
freely moved. On most occa-
sions the Lipoma lump is a sin-
gular occurrence; but in quite a
few cases they are multiple
swellings. The typical Lipoma
lump is surrounded by a fibrous
capsule which makes the lump
distinct from the surrounding
body fat. Lipomas are not pain-
ful and they increase in size
very slowly.
In passing, I should mention
that there is a type of "diffuse"
Lipoma that we see in Dachs-
hunds. In this case, virtually the
entire skin is affected, resulting
in prominent folds on the neck
and body skin.
Actually, many Lipomas
merge with adjacent fatty tissue.
This poses a problem for the
surgeon who is cutting out the
Lipomas. How much
neighboring tissue must the
surgeon excise? Anyway. expe-
rienced surgeons know what to
do, and some like me tend to
cauterise the surrounding tissue.
The treatment is clear: Sur-
gery! Even though it is a benign
tumour, it should not be ignored.
not lastly for cosmetic reasons.
since the tumour tends to be-
come larger over time and looks
ugly. But more importantly, as
the tumour grows, the adhesion
to surrounding tissue becomes
more pronounced and the gross
presentation becomes indistin-
guishable from other types of
cancers, for example the Liposa-
rcoma.
Excision of the tissue is
curative. As the owner, you
would be well advised to place
the candidate for surgery on a
restrictive diet. The animal will
lose weight and this helps to in-
duce a better definition of the
tumour, so that the surgeon can
see clearly the margins and can
accordingly cut out the genu-
inely abnormal mass of tissue.
Please enjoy your Easter
celebrations, remembering to
care for your pets.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE Phagwah Special March 27, 2005 1


President Jagdeo's


Phagwah message


A HAPPY Phagwah to all Guyanese, especially our
Hindu brothers and sisters.
Phagwah (Holi), the Spring Festival or the Festi-
val of colours, reminds us of the beauty of creation
and the fact that good eventually triumphs over evil.
The festival heralds the coming of spring. It is the
time when many dreams can be fulfilled, when de-
pression could yield to positive thoughts and when
sadness could yield to joy.
Our families, neighbours, and fellow citizens could
enjoy the atmosphere created if we all recognize the
symbolisms associated with this festival.
The story of Phagwah also reminds us of the vir-


tue of being steadfast to one's belief and courage
to pursue duty.
It encourages us not to use our energies and re-
sources to project or encourage evil.
The story of Prince Prahalad should be a source
of strength for all especially his ability to confront
challenges.
Phagwah in our country brings our people to-
gether in a very colourful and festive celebration.
It is another occasion for the sharing of joy, love
and friendship. The celebrations do accentuate one-
ness.
A Happy Phagwah to all Guyanese.

Phagwah


greetings from


the PNCR

IT IS significant, this year that the Hindu Festi-
val of Phagwah will be celebrated during the
Christian festival of Easter.
The People's National Congress Reform expresses
sincere good wishes to the Hindu community of
Guyana in particular and Guyanese in general, on the
occasion of the celebration of the festival of Phagwah.
Phagwah has both religious and secular signifi-
cance. Its secular significance lies in the advent of
the season of spring and its real and allegorical im-
plication of fertility, rebirth, renewal and regenera-
tion.
The religious significance of Holi lies in the con-
quest of good over evil, manifested in the destruc-
tion by Prahalad of his demonic father King
Hiranyakasyapu.
Several demons are now abroad in our embattled
land.
Phagwah comes this year at a time when most
Guyanese are still reeling under the effects of the
recent floods.
Increasing unemployment, violent crime, deepen-
ing economic recession, entrenched discrimination,
partisanship and governmental ineptitude,
characteristise our society and economy.
The People's National Congress Reform hopes
that the festivals of Holi and Easter will provide some
spiritual inspiration to the Guyanese people, to fight
against these demons that are abroad.
It is also hoped that these religious festivals
will contribute to the moulding of our religious
and ethnic diverse society to make a reality of
our motto, "One People One Nation One Des-
tiny".
AGAIN, HAPPY HOLI TO ALL GUYANESE.

other.
The festival's preamble begins on the night of the
full moon. Bonfires are lit on street corners to cleanse
the air of evil spirits and bad vibes, and to symbolise
the destruction of the wicked Holika, for whom the fes-
tival was named.
The following morning, the streets fill with people
running, shouting, giggling and splashing. Marijuana-
based bhang and thandai add to the uninhibited at-
mosphere.
Promptly at noon, the craziness comes to an end
and everyone heads to either the river or the bath-
tub, then inside to relax the day away and partake of
candies.
In the afternoon an exhausted and contented si-

lence falls over India.
Although Holi is observed all over the north, it's
celebrated with special joy and zest at Mathura,
Vrindavan, Nandgaon, and Barsnar. These towns once
housed the divine Krishna.
Each area celebrates Holt differently; the Bhil
tribesmen of western Madhya Pradesh, who've re-
tained many of their pre-Hindu customs, celebrate
Holi in a unique way.
In rural Maharashtra State, where the festival is
known as Rangapanchami, it is celebrated With danc-
ing and singing.
In the towns of Rajasthan especially Jaisalmer
- the music's great, and clouds of pink, green, and
turquoise powder fill the air.
The grounds of Jaisalmer's Mandir Palace are
turned into chaos, with dances, folk songs, and
coloured-powder confusion. (FROM:

A festival o

HOLI is a festival of colour cel-
ebrated all over India.
It is also celebrated by Indians re-
sidinii out of India.
This festival comes on the full
rni,-'cn day of Phagan a Hindu month.
Ilt. festival brings new hope for all .

chill, \~lnter days and the beginning sight.

which comes from everywhere;
re hballoons brsting and long


pistons squirting coloured water.
People in small groups are seen
singing, dancing and throwing colours
on each other.
According to legend. Hirankashyap
was a very powerful Devil. In his fight
against the Gods he had defeated the
Gods and because of this he became
very egoistic and had issued an order
that no one should pray to God or even
take the name of God.
Due to fear, people started praying
to him. His son Prahalad was a true
devotee of God. He didn't obey his
father's order.
Hirankashyap got angry with him
and ordered the most rigorous punish-
ment to him.
But this did no harm to Prahalad.
Hirankashyap had a sister by the


name of Holika. She had been granted a
boon that fire will do no harm to her.
Hirankashyap ordered Holika to take
Prahalad on her lap and sit on a bed of
fire. Holika was burnt in the fire and
Prahalad survived with no harm done to
him.
As a remembrance to that event,
people celebrate Holi by burning wood
and praying to the Goddess Holi for their
well being.
Holi is also associated with the im-
mortal love of Krishna and Radha.
Holi is celebrated all over India, but
is more predominant in North India.
Celebrations start a week earlier than
rest of India.
Men of Nandagaon (place where Lord
Krishna grew up) raid Barsana (place
where Radha grew up) with hopes of rais-
ing their flag over Shri Radhikaji's

This festival was brought from India by Hindu fore-parents who came as
indentured immigrants in 1838.
Holi comes from the Sanscrit word 'Hola' meaning grain. Phagwah
comes from the Hindu month of Phalgun.
The season of Phagwah commences exactly forty (40) days from the planting
of the Holika (Castor oil tree).
Burning of the Holika takes place on the night before Phagwah (full moon night),
Phagwah Day signifies harvest time, the reaping of the spring crop
and the Hindu New Year.
Holika (Sister of the evil King Hiranya Kashyapu) symbolises the
conquest of good over evil.
in the Caribbean, chowtal is the dominant style of music associated
with Phagwah. A \
