gust staging of the Caribbean

Taking th time
to celebrate is
RH eSSetilal

part of loving

(CAIRIFESTA~) to a cultural
renaissance as evidenced for
instance by the fervour with
which the society at large has
been responding to efforts to
resuscitate the steel pan as

well as The Thleatre Guild.
"1 feel that there is a cul-
tural renaissance that is afoot in
Guyana... by just having
Carifesta. he told the sizeable
gathering assembled last Tues-

day at the Guvauna Teachers
Un~ion Hiall in New~ Amllsterdam
for the launching of Carifesta X
in the Ancient County' as the
Berbice community is otherwise
Clearly ecstatic about the
pr-ospect of the return of theatre
he~rec to its folrme~r glor' w~ith the
relsuscitation of 'The Guild`. a
project to which the government
has contributed some $15M. Dr
Anthony said: "You... have to
Aspire to hav;e your own the-
atre. because that is also impor-
tant: it mnust be a dream you
must not give up on because I
think it is necessary: you have
enough talent hecre~to have your
own theatre."
SAnd, remnarking upon the
overwhelming response to a
proposed workshop on thear-e
mnanagement, which hasanlready
Drawn some 1500 applicants
Sand is hoped tobe concluded in

time for Carifesta, Dr Anthony
said: "It shows that people will
like to be in this area...that is a
healthy~ sign, and that is whY we
w~ant to support it."
F~or him, there is an hlis-
torical significance in bring-
ing Carifesta back to these
shores; and that is that when
thle first exposition was held
here back in 1972, the Region
did not yet have an event that
showcased its combined in-
digenous cultures and talent.
"We thought then that it
was important( thatl Guyana
took thle Ileadership rolll in
showcasing the indigenous cul-
tures of the Calribbean,'` Dr An-
thony said, adding: "This festi-
val. which first started in

PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo
along with 11 other South
American leaders on Friday
signed on to a treaty to set-
up the South-American
Union of Nations
The countries that now
form part of UNASUR are: Ar-
gentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile,
Colombia, Equador, Guyana,
Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Ven-
ezuela and Suriname. Chile's
President Michelle Bachelet
was chosen as the first rotating
President of the Union.
UNASUR was inspired by
the Cusco Declaration of De-
cember 8, 2004, the Brasilia
Declaration of September 30,
2005, and the Cochabamba Dec-
laration of December 9, 2006.
The bodies of UNASUR
are: The Council of Heads of
State and Government; the
Council of Ministers of Foreign
Affairs; the Council of Del-
egates; and the General Secre-
tariat with the Council of Heads
of State and Government being
the highest organ.
According to the treaty,
which was signed in Brasilia,
UNASUR has, among others,
the following specific objec-

strengthening of the po-

litical dialogue among Member
States to guarantee a space for
consultation in order to reinforce
Soith American integration and
the participation of UNASUR
in the international arena;

inclusive and equitable so-
cial and human development in
order to eradicate poverty and
overcome inequalities in the re-

eradication of illiteracy,
the universal access to quality
education and the regional ree-
ognition of courses and titles;

energy integration for the
integral and sustainable use of
the resources of the region, in a
spirit of solidarity;

development of an infra-
structure for the interconnection
of the region and among our
peoples, based on sustainable
social and economic develop-
ment criteria;

protection of biodiversity,
water resources and ecosys-
tems, as well as cooperation in
the prevention of catastrophes
and in combating the causes and
effects of climate change;

consolidation of a South

American identity through the
progressive recognition of the
rights of nationals of a Member
State resident in any of the other
Member States, with the aim of
attaining a South American citi-

universal access to social
security and health services;

cooperation on issues of
migration with a holistic ap-
proach, based on an unrestricted
respect for human and labour
rights, for migratory
regularisation and harmonisation
of policies;

economic and commercial
cooperation to achieve progress
and consolidation of an innova-
tive, dynamic, transparent, eq-
nitable and balanced process fo-
cused on an effective access,
promoting economic growth
and development to overcome

promotion of cultural di-
versity and the expression of
the traditions and knowledge of
the peoples of the region, in or-
der to strengthen their sense of

coordination among
specialised bodies of the Mem-

ber States, taking into account
international norms, in order to
strengthen the fight against cor-
ruption, the global drug prob-
lem, trafficking in persons, traf-
ficking in small and light weap-
ons, terrorism, transnational
organised crime and other
threats as well as for disarma-
ment, the non-proliferation of
nuclear weapons and weapons
of mass destruction, and elimi-
nation of landmines; and

promotion of cooperation
among the judicial authorities of
the Member States of

The Summit of the Heads
of State of South American

countries was the brainchild of
Brazil and was first held in
Brasilia in August, 2000. At that
forum, the major issues dis-
cussed included the Initiative for
the Integration of South Ameri-
can Infrastructure (IIRSA)
where it was felt that the weak
infrastructural links between
South American countries hin-
dered the advancement of the
initiative to create the 'common
South American Space' and the
promotion of sustainable eco-
nomic growth in the region as
envisaged by the Leaders.
Progress has been made
since then with the formation
and implementation of the
IIRSA. A list of priority
projects was also agreed to un

der the initiative, and these in-
clude the Lethem/Georgetown
road project.
The third such summit
was held in Cusco, Peru in
December, 2004. (GINA)

Thousands of people marched
through South Africa's biggest

end to the violence that has
killed at least 50 African mi-
grants and forced tens of thou-
sands to flee their homes.
Demonstrators carrying plac-

like apartheid" and "We stand
against xenophobia" brought traf-

Johannesburg's city centre.
People in the Hillbrow dis-
trict, home to many African im-

migrants. cheered the march,
which was organized by
churches and labor unions.
Police said townships
around Johannesburg were
quiet but shops were looted
and burnt outside Cape Town
late on Friday.
The South African govern-
ment has been criticized for its
slow reaction to the violence,
the worst since apartheid
ended 14 years ago, and for
not addressing the poverty
that is widely blamed for the

bodies of constables Cornell

were lying on the ground in
their uniforms on Third

they and two colleagues had
gone on foot patrol.
The killing of the two con-
stables, who were attached to
the Kingston Western Police Di-

of police personnel to have been
killed since the start of the year.
Police reports are that
just after midday, con-
stables Gran t, La wrence

were patrolling Third Street
after a double murder the
night before. When the two
constables entered premises
there, they were attacked
by armed men.
The gunmen escaped with
one of the policemen's nine-
millimetre pistol and an MI6
rifle. The police say they have
identified suspects.
When The Gleaner visited

Rather than carry out Labour

Several senior officers, in-

Rear Admiral Hardley Lewin and
deputy commissioners of police

were also on the scene.
"Him seh him never feel like

Meanwhile, Lewin said the
demise of the officers was a
clear indication of what mem-

was a sad day for members of
the JCF.
Le win told reporters on
the scene that those respon-

for the arrest and conviction of
those responsible for the mur-

In the meantime, Minis-

Colonel Trevor MacMillan
condemned the attack. He
urged members of the JCF to
remain steadfast, resolute
and professional in carrying
out their duties, despite the
adversities they faced.
Corporal Raymond Wil-
son, chairman of the Police
Federation, also condemned the
killing of the policemen, say-
ing they were two foot soldiers
who were serving and protect-

Opposition Spokesman on

Phillips expressed condolences
to the family and friends of the
two policemen. He said the slay-

disturbing as it occurred on

police, said he spoke with
Grant and Lawrence yester-
day morning. He also said he
went on patrol with Grant on
Wednesday and described
him as a quiet person.

SC, Opposition Leader Robert Corbin has decided to
engage the attention of the Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) on issues of conflict in Guyana in a new ap.
proach to national problems instead of just an obses-
sion bw hnanti- o erhnment sret protests which his party

The identified problems extend to the rising cost of
living; suspension for four months of the broadcast li-
conce of C N Sharma's Channel 6 television station; de-
nial of fundamental rights of individuals like Oliver
Hinckson (currently facing trial on charges of sedition);
claimed acts of torture and property destruction affect-
ing Buxtonians by the security forces; in addition to old
issues, such as a perceived need for "shared gover-
Strikingly absent from the PNCR leader's litany of
complaints against the government's handling of the
nation's business is any indication of his own party's
interest in helping to find the armed
criminals responsible for the horrific massacres of in-
nocent Guyanese at Lusignan and later Bartica. Or,
any admission that the war against the criminal enter-
prise that threatens a law and order environment re-
quires cooperation on all sides, including the PNCR.
Whether Mr. Corbin's new approach to petition
CARICOM on real and perceived wrongs in Guyana un-
der the PPP/C administration was influenced by his
reaching out to the minority AFC and GAP-ROAR parties,
or from any critical reassessment of his party's anti-gov-
ernment street protests, is not clear.
He has, in any case, spoken of combining more
street demonstrations (legal or illegal?), with plans for
a signature campaign in support of the proposed peti-
tion being prepared for submission to CARICOM to co-
incide with the coming regular annual summit in early
July, hosted by the Antigua and Barbuda government.
As this viewpoint was being written, President Bharrat
Jagdeo was still in Brazil on an official mission, and no
statement had been issued by the ruling PPP in re-
sponse to the report of the opposition parties plan to pe-
tition CARICOM.
The local parliamentary opposition, like their coun-
terparts elsewhere in the Community, should be aware
of how CARICOM functions in relation to involving itself
in the domestic political affairs of a sovereign member
state--without first being given the official nod that a
goodwill involvement would be acceptable, depending
on the precise mandate.
Well, according to a report in the 'Stabroek News' of
last Friday, titled "Opposition to petition CARICOM on gov-
ernance issues", the PNCR leader is quoted as saying
that "the petition would also call on the Heads (of Gov-
ernment) to use CARICOM's collective influence to fa-
cilitate the creation of an environment of peace and so-
cial stability, particularly as it relates to the advancement
of the issue of inclusive/shared governance, (which is)
a prerequisite for progress, development and security
of Guyana and its citizens..."
Are the leaders of the minority parties just trying to
be nice in joining with the PNCR leader to invite the gov-
ernments of CARICOM to become involved in the "cre-

ation of an' environment of peace and social stability" in
Guyana by pushiing the idea of "inclusive" or "shared gov-
Where in CARICOM does such an "inclusive" ap-
proach to governance, or interest in "shared governance,,
exist? Neither in the very country that will host the com-
ing summit nor anywhere else. Therefore, are the oppo-
sition parties just engaging in a game of words to mask
another agenda?
For, in the world of CARICOM's "realpolitik" such an
idea Is simply off-course. What happened in Guyana in
1997 following post-elections political disturbances fo-
mented by the PNCR, should not be expected to have a
replay in terms of another generous compromise by an-
other legitimate PPP/C administration to once more in-
volve CARICOM in a mediating role. In any case, current
CARICOM administrations are faced with their own
pressing domestic problems, some quite similar to
Guyana's and known to Guyanese.
Question of relevance, is whether the PNCR realises
its own role and responsibility to do what it wants from
CARICOM, nkrnely to "facilitate the creation of an envi-
ronment of peace and social stability" to help advance at
least "inclusiveness" if not "shared governance"?
This would require not illegal street marches and
threats accompanied with the burning of coffins and an
effigy of President Bharrat Jagdeo. Rather, that
both Jagdeo and Corbin should desist from their arro-
gance and inflexible approaches in favour of resumption
of mature dialogue in a genuine spirit of compromise-
in the national interest.
For the President to assume he is without fault in re-
lation to some of the litany of opposition claims made
against hilm and his government would be simply ridicu-
Ious. His advisers need to engage in some urgent re-
think for compromise solutions. That's what contributes
to good governance.
On the other hand, for the PNCR leader to really
believe that the government will genuflect to what's be-
ing demanded by its opponents is to dwell in a world of
unreality. In the present circumstances, neither reckless
anti-government street protests nor an invitation for
CARICOM's involvement, as being proposed, seems a
realistic alternative to constructive government/opposition
It must be a meaningful dialogue, one that takes
place in an "environment of peace and stability", as the
opposition parties say they want--and for which THEY
must also work to achieve--and which President Jagdeo
just recently signalled he was anxious to resume.
Meaningful bi-partisan dialogue is what the vast ma-
jority Guyanese--across ethnic and political bound-
aries--undoubtedly favour as they prepare to celebrate
tomorrow Guyana's 42nd anniversary as an independent



I write this letter in re-
sponse to Vidyaratha
Kissoon's "Freud did not
think homosexuality a men-
tal disorder" which was pub-
lished in the Stabroek News
dated 23rd May, 2008, and in
support of the stance Roger
Williams has taken so far on
the issue.
I see that the subject of ho-
mosexuality is now dominating
our national conversation and
the participants in this conver-
sation are using all kinds of ar-
guments to support their
stance, be it for or against ho-
mosexuality. The latest of
these arguments centred on
Freud and whether or not he
countenanced homosexuality. I
think whether or not Sigmund
Freud accepted homosexuality
as a normal way of life is not
et tll. tphoot t te dearu-
spected in the field of psycho-
analysis, one must not ignore
the fact that he came from a re-
ligious background (though
many would argue that he was
an atheist and was against reli-
gion) that not only counte-
nanced homosexuality but also
the sodomizing of little chil-
dren. So if we base our accep-
tance of homosexuality on
Freud, we might find ourselves
later accepting as normal
behaviour the sodomization of
little children. One must also be
aware of the social conse-
quences of Freudianism espe-
cially in relation to homosexu-
ality, because as revealed by his
letter to Mrs. N, dated the 9th
April, 1935 his psychoanaly-
sis was aimed at exorcising
from the individual any feelings
of qualms or guilt. In other
words, Freud's psychoanalysis
would have removed from the
young man, who was obvi-
ously perturbed by his own
homosexual behaviours, his
conscience. Think of the con-
sequences of a conscienceless
Others in support of ho-
mosexuality rest their argu-
ments on the basis of individual
freedom. Those who hold this
view must be instructed, to use
a quote from Kant, that "free-
dom is the ratio essendi of the
moral law", therefore freedom
must be balanced by the adher-
ence to the moral law. Also we
have so many other issues of
violations of individual freedom
that beset us in this society
that I doubt those that use free-
dom as the basis for their ar-
guments are any more inter-
ested in individual freedom
than in pursuing their own he-
donistic agenda.
There are those who also
argue that homosexuality is not
a choice but it is genetic. This
is a very frightening argument
because it removes the basis
upon which we can hold people
responsible for their actions es-
pecially in light of the below
conclusions by Dr. Simon
LeVay in his study of the by-
pothalamic differences between
the brains of homosexual and
heterosexual men.
"It's important to stress
what I didn't find. I did not

prove that homosexuality is ge-
netic, or find a genetic cause for
being gay. I didn't show that
gay men are born that way, the
most common mistake people
make in interpreting my work.
Nor did I locate a gay centre in
the brain".
As a Rastafarian my view
on the Gay issue is akin to that
of Roger Williams. I use him as
the point of reference because
he is the only person appar-
ently (with access to a pen or
keyboard) that has a keen un-
derstanding of the dire conse-
quences of a society gone Gay.
He is the only person that is
stressing the need to look at the
issue from its sociological point
of view.
Homosexuality is an ahet-
ration, a social pathology, just
like suicide, murder, substance
nbuseand other suc scia fl to
treat it as a nonnal and natural
way of life. And while I will ir
no way advocate the killing of
gays, I would definitely advo
cate some form of psycho
therapy and behaviour control.
Guyana is now being ex-
posed to the sophisticated
strategy of Kirk and Madsen
both of whom are Harvard-edu
cated marketing professionals
laid out for changing the wa)
Americans, and by extension the
world, think about homosexual
ity. This strategy is divided inter
three phases: "Desensitization,
"Jamming" and "Conversion.'
In Guyana we are now a
phase one which entails a "con
tinuous flood of gay-related aat
vertising, presented in the leas
offensive fashion possible. 1
straights can't shut off th
shower, they may at least ever
tually get used to being wet."
"The main thing is to tal
about gayness until the issu
becomes thoroughly
tiresome...If you can go
[straights] to think homosext
ality is just another thing -
meriting no more than a shn
of the shoulders then yol
battle for legal and social rig
is virtually won."
Though we have also expel
rienced a little of the second
phase "Jamming" by the bat
ning of Bounty Killa an

THE combined opposition
has come together to try to
force the President to act
contrary to the spirit of the
constitution. Based on what
is reported in the media they
are seeking to have him re-

have the sedition charge
against Oliver Hinckson
Both of these matters are
now before the courts. The in-
tervention by the executive in
the judicial process at the re-
quest of the opposition could
lead to a new and dangerous
path. It is amazing that the op-
position would criticise the ex-

currently pondering the like-
lihood of either a snap gen-
eral election or a series of by-
elections, as a consequence of
the controversies sparked by
the dual citizenship held by
some parliamentarians, down
in the Eastern Caribbean, St.
Lucians are speculating
about the survival of Prime
Minister Stehenson King's
government that seems to be
on the verge of collapse.
Prime Minister Bruce
Golding, whose Jamaica Labour
Party (JLP) has been in govern-
ment for just 10 months now-
after 18 years as the
parliamentary opposition--is
trying hard to keep cool as he
faces the prospect of either of
the two electoral options.
Both options would be
quite challenging for an admin-
istration with a four-seat parlia-
mentary majority, based on an
overall plurality of votes of less
than one percent than that se-
cured by then
incumbent People's National
Jamaica, after all, unfortu-
nately remains a nation still
very much plagued by murders
and criminal violence; poverty
and joblessness among youth,
and bearing the burden as one of
the world's fourth most debt-
ridden countries. Governance
here is a massive challenge.
Yet, for Golding's St. Lucian
counterpart, King, the options
to remain as Prime Minister ap-
pear more daunting. Unlike
Golding, King faces both a seri-
ous threat to his leadership from
growing internal rebellion in the
United Workers Party and,

worse, the strong likelihood of
the party's defeat at an unavoid-
able snap general election.
This is a punishment an in-
cumbent JLP could possibly es-
cape, as the PNP battles its own
political demons since losing
state power. It is, however,
doubtful that either of these tra-
ditional electoral thoroughbreds
is really mn the mood for either
a series of by-elections or a
snap national poll.
Hence, the current dialogue
between their representatives to
find an imaginative and practi-
cal formula to addressing a
shared problem of the dual
nationalities held by some MPs,
sitting uncomfortably since a
court ruling disqualified JLP's
Daryl Vaiz, on a motion by the
PNP's Abe Dabdoub, and a by-
election ordered for the West
Portland constituency.
Across in St. Lucia, time
may be running out for Prime
Minister King who has won
some respite for a few days,
having pleaded with his eleven
UWP parliamentarians in the
17-member House of Assembly
to allow him to host the 47th
regular summit of Heads of
Government of the Organisation
of Eastern Caribbean States
(OECS) before resuming efforts
to promote "an amicable reso-
lution" to their sharp differ-
The OECS summit, which
started in Castries on Friday,
was scheduled to conclude yes-
terday. However, come tomor-
row, expect a resumption of the
open battle of words as UWP
parliamentarians, opposed to
King's leadership of the~ party
and government, press their de-

mands against him.
For a start, the dismissal
of Economic Affairs and Plan-
ning Minister Ausbert
D'Au~vergne, which he has
been resisting since last year.
Coincidentally, oh this de-
mand the dissident MPs are at
one with the opposition St.
Lucia Labour Party (SLP) of
former Prime Minister Kenny
Anthony, in challenging
D'Auvergne's "suitability" for
such a position, plus the "influ-
ence he wields" in contrast to his
track record in management as
a private citizen.
Having earlier failed to se-
cure King's reinstatement of MP
Rufus Bousquet as Foreign
Minister--a portfolio revoked
at the request of ea then ailing
UWP leader and Prime Minis-
ter, Sir John Compton, (who has
since passed 'awa'yff the pres-
sure is mounting for dismissal of
the Economic Akffairk and Plan-
ning Min~ister or,
alternatively, the resignation of
King as head of government.
He has been resisting doing
either and in a broadcast to the
nation late on Tuesday night,
King failed to indicate the steps
he plans to piirsiirtZo achieve
his declared anxiety for "an ami-
cable resolution".
SLP's stand: As King was
preparing for :the two-day
OECS Summit, Opposition
Leader Anthony, whose SLP
was defeated at the December
2006 general election after two
consecutive terms, declared in a
press statement inavhich he ac-
cused the Prime MVinister of
"abusing the patience and good-
will of St. Lucians" that:
"It is clear that the crisis

facing the country is totally be-
yond the capacity of the Prime
Minister to resolve...The SLP
has given the government time
to resolve its problems. So too
have the people of St. Lucia.
They have been tolerant, patient
and understanding_.
"If", added Anthony,
"Prime Minister King is con-
cerned about this country, then
he must act responsibly and do
the right thing: He must advise
the Governor General to dis-
solve the House of Assembly to
allow the people of St. Lucia to
decide their future..."
There was no indication
to suggest, at the time of writ-
ing, that King is disposed to
either handing over leader-
ship of government to any of
his four best known oppo-
nents in his administration,
or dismiss the Economic Af-
fairs and Planning Minister,

Table 5 shows the ethnic composition of 42 boards where Indians were at an unmistakable disad-
vantage. Clearly, in the ruling PNC years, Indians were scarce in various State institutions. Tables 1
through 5 may be very well demonstrating racial participation trends; today, however, we see a rever-
sal of racial patterns; we see, today, an evolving mix of ethnics in State agencies, shown in earlier
papers. Look, both the Indian and African working class suffered the spoils of the PNC's ruling years
at the expense of an evolving PNC elite.

The Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission is inviting interesting
persons to apply for sponsorship to undergo training at the Government
Technical Institute (GTI) in a Diploma in Land Surveying for a two year

(1) White colonials dominated the higher echelons of the Public Service, with Coloureds, Africans,
and Indians at the bottom of that hierarchy. And compared to other ethnics, Indians carried the lowest
hierarchical status in the colonial public service.
(2) East Indians were under-represented at both the top and bottom echelons of the bureaucracy.
(3) Most of the Public Service positions attracted an urban-based population before 1953, and so
. the groups most likely to absorb these positions were Africans and Coloureds. Africans and Coloureds
Were predominantly concentrated in Georgetown and New Amsterdam, the main urban centres.
(4) The race and ethnicity factor cannot convincingly explain the greater numbers of Africans in the
colonial bureaucracy.
(5) After the PPP split in 1955, Africans were still more favourably placed than Indians mn govern-
mental agencies.
(6) Burnham noted that the rapid development of education among Indians and their occupational
Penetration into the traditional preserves of Africans, made it inevitable that Indians would constitute
a threat to Africans; and that Africans should protect their vested interest.
(7) The International Commission of Jurists' recommendations were that Indians should be re-
cruited at a greater rate than Africans until an acceptable ethnic balance was reached. The PNC Gov-
ernment during its 28 years failed to correct this imbalance.
And so today, using Debiprashad and Budhram cross-sectional study of the 1970s, we will show
the participation levels of various ethnic groups during the ruling PNC era; especially so, as the State
then controlled employment in excess of 50% by 1978 from 21.4% in 1970.

Table 1 shows that in the Ministries in the 1970s, only a small number of Indians occupied senior
administrative positions. In 1973, there was only one Indian Permanent Secretary and two in 1979.
About 37% of Principal Assistant Secretaries and only 23% of Heads of Personnel Divisions were
Indians. There were 7 Indian Ministers and 20 African Ministers. There was some ethnic balance in

IT was looking ugly there for
a few days, with mobs of
South Africans in townships
around Johannesburg ran-
domly murdering several
dozen "foreigners" (migrants
from other Arican countries)
and injuring several hun-
dred. But now Presid at
Thabo Mbeki has acted d ci-
sively: he has announced the
establishment of a panel of
inquiry into the viollne.
That should fix it. .1
Just in case he gets impatient
while waiting for the pan I's re-
port, however, I can tell: him
what it will say or at least,
what it should say. It should say
that the root problem \fis his
own government's "nod-lnter-
ventionist" policy on inimigra-
tion: its refusal to control breven
count the number of pe ple ar-
nvmig mn South Africa froth other
African countries.
The mere fact that the com-
monly used estimate is "three to
five million" illegal immigrants
says it all: the authorities really
have no idea how many foreign-
ers are in South Africa. But the
higher estimate is probably
closer to the truth, for some
four million people ha~ left
Zimbabwe alone to seek work
abroad, and almost all of them
have gone to South Africa l
This "open borders" inon-
policy had high motives. ~Lany
of South Africa's current lead-
ers are men and women who
spent decades in exile duridig the
fight against apartheid, anti the
migrants come mostly froiitthe
countries that gave them shtbter
at that time. How can they~turn
away people from those cbun-
tries from Zimbabwe, above
all now that the shoe is on

the other foot?
It is an honourable senti-
ment, but more easily experi-
enced if, like South Africa's cur-
rent leaders, jeou lead a secure
and comfortable life in one of
the nicer northern suburbs of
Johannesburg. If you happen to
live in Alexapdra township (not
all that far from those pleasant
suburbs) amidst garbage and
violence and chronic poverty,
and you don't have a job, it's j
little harder to access such
noble emotions because one-
tenth of the people in the couni-
try are illegal immigrants, and
lots of them do have jobs.
Miserable, underpaid jobs,
for the most part, but in a coun-
try where the true unemploy-
ment rate is somewhere near
half, there are bound to be a
great many people who resent
foreigners getting any jobs at all.
Especially because there is
some truth in the complaint of
poor and uneducated South Af-
ricans that the illegal immigrants
get the unskilled jobs because
employers can pay them less
and they won't dare complain.
None of this justifies mur-
der, but it does begin to explain
Thabo Mbeki was incred-
ibly foolish to assume that he
could just let foreigners flood
into the country and not expose
them to a popular backlash. The
South African media sare filled
with self-flagellating editorials
that all basically ask "What kind
of people are we if we i:an be-
have like this?" The answer is:
not saintly inhabitants of some
imagined "rainbow nation" that
has risen above the normal hu-
mai plane, just ordinary people
under pressure and behaving

Last week in Italy, other or-
dinary people threw Molotov
cocktails into Gypsy camps
and burned them down. Most
of~those people have jobs, live
inrcomfortable surroundings,
and eat quite well, and they
STIIL behaved badly. There are
odly about 150,000 Gypsies in
It ly, half of whom have been
t ere since the 15th century.
Se y are less than a quarter of
ohe percent of the population,
aind yet 68 percent of Italians
want them all expelled.
SThe South Afrtican poor
have been amazingly patient as
yiear after year went by four-
t en years now since the end of
apartheid when so littib has
chyaged for the better in~,their
olives. The black poor still loy-
ally vote for the African Na-
t(ional Congress (ANC), but
their anger was goingito burst
out somewhere or other, sooner
Br later. By holdisig tlid- door
open to so many illegal immi-
grants, the government has guar-
anteed that they would be the
primary target.
Maybe this is some Ma-
chiavellian plan to divert popu-
lar anger from the government
itself, but probably not. It's just
that the leaders don't sjee what
has been happening to ordinary
People. How else could Thabo
Mbeki go on defending Robert
Mugabe, the destroyer of Zhn-
babwe, year afterr year, when
Mugabe's misdeeds wbre the
main reason that this enormous
wave of illegal immigrants struck
South Africa?
Justice Malala, whose col-
umn appears in The Times (the
online version of South Africa's
Sunday Times), nailed it on

Monday when he wrote: "(Our)
people are behaving like barbar-
ians because the ANC has failed
- despite numerous warnings
- to act on burning issues that
are well known for having
sparked similar eruptions across
the globe...
"The Mbeki government's
refusal to even acknowledge the
crisis in Zimbabwe has resulted
in as many as 3 million Zimba-
bweans walking the streets of
South Afnica....Mbeki's resolute
refusal to address the crisis in
Zimbabwe and his friendship
with President Robert Mugabe
- has brought them here. His
block-headedness is directly re-
sponsible for the eruption of xe-
Such plain talk iS not
"Lblaming the victim."i It is
recognizing realities, which
is the first step towards ad.
dressing them. And whefe the
despairing poor of South Af-
rica should be addressing
their anger as not at h41pless
Zimbabweans but at the
president who let this human
catastrophe happen.

were the wheelers and the dealers, unscrupulous lawyers and
intellectual sophists. These "foxes" were capable of all man-
ner of innovations and experiments, but lacking in fidelity to
principle. These were shrewd men,' cunning men, who would
stop at nothing to have their way. Pareto believes that in his
time the foxes were on the ascendancy, hence the political and
economic scene of his time was dominated by the "Cfoxes".
The "lions", according to Pareto, are those individuals who
are more on the conservative side. These are men who haire
powerful feelings of loyalty to family, tribe, city, and n tion;
they display class solidarity, patriotism, and religious zeal;
and they are not afraid of using force when necessary.
According to Pareto, if society is overrun by the foxes, thy so-
cial equilibrium will be upset and social order will be destrqye f.
Yet he contends that as was evidenced in every generatioli, the
"Lions", men of conservatism and persistence, would rise up and
oppose the divisive, evil doings of the "foxes" and restore oider
and stability to their society
Now one may ask, "'what relevance is Pareto's theory:of Lions
and Foxes with Guyana's Independence?
Well Pareto also holds the view that even though jwe see
changes occurring around us, in terms of changes in: societal
structures, things are still the same deep underneath. Be talks
about the residual ideologies that remain within a society's
psyche. Hence the ideologies of the foxes, one of craftiness
and evil innovations, remain in a society. By extension, it must
also be concluded that the ideologies of the Lions remain etched
into the psyche of a people.
The independence we have and celebrate is a national and his-
torical one. But the independence that we still do need, is to be free
from the influence of political foxes, who use their political crafti-
ness to beguile, confuse distort, and sabotage, all for personal gain.
Foxes that have smooth speech and winning ways, who~trap the
gullible into supporting causes that they themselves are not com-
mitted and sold out to.
The need therefore, as always, is for the "Lions" within our
society to roar against such undermining, corrosive, manip nations.
The Lions within our society must out of necessity aban bn their
posture of complacency and politically correct compliance, ilnd roar
a message that is clear, consistent and courageous.
This theory of social conflict presented by Pareto is not con-
fined to the historical context of Italy and France. We see nluch of
this kind of human behaviour in modern societies as well.
As we celebrate our Independence, may we pursu~ free-
dom from ideologies and Social behaviours that would return
our nation to the path of enslavement.

current systems. just to be faced
with a huge reality check.
Obama as President is ex-
pected to find a Washington
where the bulk of business be-
ing done is through the machi-
nations of the various lobbying
groups. While he has undoubt-
edly avoided dealing with the
notorious and influential group
as a Senator. it is doubtful that
his tenure as President can be
truly effective without some
compronuses with some lobby-
ists. Then there is of course the
'military-mndustrial" complex -
Obama in the age of global ter-
rorism will have to prove harder
than most that he, while more
prone to pacifism, is still will-

ing to preserve and enhance the
status quo when it comes to
America's military light.
Barack Obama as President
will surely face greater obstacles
than either of his tw~o competi-
tors for the Presidency. What
he has done defies both conven-
tional wisdom as well as his crit-
ics with his "audacity of hope."
Whatever the outcome,
outside of Obama's recent
apparent trademark on the
word what is good is that a
real change has been taking
place in American politics and
a change in the American po-
litical arena usually means a
change in the fortunes of the

her presidential campaign.
My fundamental support
for Clinton remains constant
primarily because her core poli-
cies regarding key issues basi-
cally remain unchanged. This is
despite the fact that she has
been receiving a fair amount of
flack for what have been con-
strued as unfair attacks.
What I've observed in
many people I know who have
formerly been strong Clinton
supporters like me is a sudden
migration to the Obama camp.
Several of them have cited
Obama's policies, particularly
his international outlook. Oth-
ers have been attracted by his
personal charisma and his un-
willingness to be bogged down
by or drawn into the vicious
sort of behaviour that has been
typical of U.S. presidential
However, too many can
find no other reason for their
change other than Obama's race.
I believe that it is an illogical
formula for determining which
candidate to support by weigh-
ing Clinton's policies against
Obama's 'blackness'. That sort
of tribalism in politics goes


against the basic tenets that de-
mocracy supposedly stands
for. I think every Guyanese is
aware of the dangers faced by
ethnic-based politics.
Not withstand in gmy
Clintonite leanings, I do ac-
knowledge the attraction
that people have for Obama,
an attraction that goes be-
yond racial solidarity. I was
watching a televised rally
held by Obama which was
attended by an estimated
78,000 people and I could
have virtually counted all
the non-White faces in that
I believe that Americans, or
probably at this stage American
democrats, need to be congratu-
lated on the candidates vying
for the right to contest the elec-
tions for the Democratic party.
While Americans have rightly
been proud of their many civic
freedoms over the past few de-
cades, American acceptance of
who is eligible for the Presi-
dency has been fairly narrow.
It has usually been the choice
between one White Anglo Saxon
Protestant male and another.
Today there is a white
woman running against a minor-
ity male for the chance to run
against a more 'traditional can-
didate', and with a strong pos-
sibility of winning at that!
Now comes the big IF. If
Obama wins the Presidency of
the United States, what hap-
pens next? The one central
message of his campaign has
been that he is representative of
change. Indeed, his campaign,
for example, has been marked
by a serious departure from the

normally combative tendency of
American politics-as a whole.
Both McCain and Clinton hae
attacked Obama on what he has
not done. which sounds fairly
more hollow than his pointing
at their track records as evidence
to show how they have contrib-
uted to where American has
gone wrong, particularly on the
very contentious issue of the

ALTHOUGH this week's ar-
ticle is focused largely on
American Democratic presi-
dential candidate, Barack
Obama, I have to begin by
conceding defeat to a Clinton
-young businessman,
Clinton Urling. Earlier this
year, when the race was much
more open than it is at
present, Urling was already
calling it for Obama in let-
ters to the press.
Despite the fact that his
candidate of choice didn't seem
likely to win the majority of
votes that would cement his
place as the Democratic candi-
date to run against John
McCain, it has become increas-
ingly safe to assume that it is
Obama who will be taking on
the Republican nominee in the
race to replace George Bush Jr.
Now, I have always been a
Hillary Clinton supporter, at-
tracted primarily by what I have
seen to be her genuine concern
for health care and the fate of
America's blue collar workers -
this is something that has been
characteristic of her public ac-
tivism even before her senato-
rial campaign, and long before

Dear Sherry
My daughter's jealous of my new partner.
I have been single since my ten-year-old daughter was two. I have a friendly relationship with her
falther, whom she atdores. About a year ago, I met a man and this relationship is deep. Now, my daug~h-
ter is desperately jealous and upset. Although my new love is sensitive and friendly towards her, my
normally sociable daughter is consistently rude.and grumpy towards him. I find I am completely taken
over with 'managing' her behaviour. I know my daughter is afraid of the changes and of losing me, but I
have tried to be very loving and reassuring with her. What can I do?

I think step-relationships go wrong when adults try to make their new partner into a second mum
o~r dadlt. Children don't need two dads. I'd reassure her that the new man won't be a replacement for
her dad, a;ndl that it is OK for her still to love her dad and that Mr X will be more like an uncle. If you
get on well with the child's father, he may be happy to make positive comments about the new man
and reassure his daughter it won't affect their relationship. You do not make a ten-year-old happier by
giving her power. If you give your partner up, part of her will be thinking: "Wahey! INow~have Mum
back all for myself!" Another part of her will be thinking: "I am responsible for my mum's happi-
ness." And the next time you find a boyfriend, it will be worse, not better.
Kids don't always get what they want it is a fact they are all too well aware of by the age of
nine. Remind her of this in the harshest terms possible. You wouldn't let her behave this way towards
a perfect stranger in the street; how dare the little madam do so towards a friend of yours in your own

You're the parent: she's the child. It's understandable but unacceptable behaviour. As long as y
give her love, make sure she feels safe around this person, and then you have to teach he r to respl

father are never- going to get back together again, but that she is not at fault for the breaklh-up of 11
relationship. Ask her father to help you oult with this situation.

It's time to leave
Dear Sherry,
It's one of the most painfull things in life; admitting to yourself that the relationship you're in is
working and that it's time to leave. I wish I could go to sleep, wake up the next morning and he;
everything be different -- but I can't. We don't have the same interests anyimor~e. I do love her, bi
am not1 in love with her. I need to move on, but don't want to hurt her, as we have been together

I know you wish your partner would magically become the person you want her to be, but :

with a mate for a certain length of time, in order to be each other's teachers. And when we have leanr

years together, and given each other great emotional gifts. However, you have arrivedl at whalt is call

not have changed, and that makes it even more difficulty to say good-bye. Be honecst. It's better1 It

Dear Sherry,
My partner has a fatal flaw and he will not deal with. I have been working to try to help hit
the areas of concern, but he only says he will try and gives up after a few months. I can't c
anymore and think its time to move on.

There are millions of men and womenc who have had the heartbreaking experience of halvin:
leave someone they love because that person refused to face his or her own fatal flaws, whether
eiakng hi tethtuthh hisanaihs 1t
ism, drug abuse or addiction to fr~ /
other women. If your partner will
not seek help in battling his
problem, or is in total denial that ;1" g
he even has a problem, you have .Cp
no healthy choice but to end the
relationship. If your partner re-
fuses to face or discuss your
problems and will not agree to
any outside help in solving your
conflicts, he has broken his com- a
mitment, to your relationship as
much as if he had an affair. He

AFTER cinemas began to
flourish in British Guiana
from the 1930s onwards,
Guyanese individuals and so-
clety on the whole developed
an increasing sense of civil-
ity and intellectual curiosity.
After cinemas began a seri-
ous decline, first with the
poor quality of films being
shown since the beginning of
the 80s, then their rapid clo-
sure and disappearance in the
1990s, Guyanese society be-
gan to slip quickly into anti-
educational and anti-intellec-
tual attitudes, along with ex-
tremely crude and violent
behaviour it had never expe-
rienced before in the modern
era. .
It is impogant to look care-
fully into why th~is occurred,.
but the first error to be admit-
ted is the totally false notiori
that the introduction of televi-
sion, video and I)VD 1ad be-
come the new process of seeing
films world-.wide, and cinemas
had become an old-fashioned
process. It is embarrassing to
admit, buit it should be admit-
ted anyway, that only in the al-
most dried-up intellectual atmo-
sphere of today's Guyana
would such a socially damaging
and silly idea be expressed
.Whoever encouraged Guyanese
society to accept such a self-
mutilating idea did the entire so-
ciety and nation a disservice.
Before looking at the vari-
ous ways in which Guyanese

played, guided individual and
social behaviour in an optimis-
tic and favourable direction, we
should clear up all misinformed
notions that cinemas are no
longer necessary, or being built.
This is totally ridiculous and
untrue. What is no longer being
built are the huge cinema pal-
aces of the past, which are now
replaced with multi-cinema
complexes of various sizes, in
huge shopping malls with offices
and apartments above, and ca-
fes, boutiques, bookstores, CD
and DVD stores, supermarkets,
banks, restaurants etc, on the
mamn floors. Yet, even if this idea
is necessary in Guyana, the old
tradition of building local cin-
emas with windows that open
at night to let in our refreshing
Atlantic breeze, and provide a
romantic glimpse of our tropi-
cal night skies, should some-
how be maintained, saving air-
conditioning for daytime shows.
This would keep that special
brand of tropical originality our
national cinemas always had.
But the real reason why cin-
emas continue to flourish in
North America, Canada, Eu-
rope. Latin America, Asia, is be-
cause intelligent, professional,
well-informed managements

prise cinema audiences become
exposed to a huge variety of ex-
collent current films through the
expertise, and guidance of pro-
fessionals~in their local cinema
industry: Such a professional
management process~ no longer
exists in Guyana as it did in the
past, before the 1980s, when
Guyana's cinemas spawned a
-huge exciting industry here, not
only beneficial as a source of
employment for hundreds, but
as a source of intellectual and
civil guidance for the population
who saw at least 75% of the
best films produced worldwide
via local cinemas. And we
should realise that to define
Guyanese culture as simply an
expression of what the so-called
ordinary 'folk' have created
among themselves from their in-

cal quota on the totally normal
evolving intelligence of
Guyanese, and their evolving
culture. Not even 25 per cent
of the excellent contemporary
international films arrive or are
seen on DVDs in Guyana today,
simply because th~e profession-
als who are needed to know and
import such films are no longer
with us. One of the unsung he-
roes of this exciting and educa-
tional era in Guyana was the fa-
mous film importer Mr
Humphrey. This was the
gentleman who was responsible
for most of Georgetown's cin.
emas in the 1940s and 50s. It
was Humphrey who, by his
high literacy, dedicated knowl.
edge and interest in films old and
recent from all the various com-
panies, created and inspired a
commonsense among the
Guyanese masses for grasping
the civilised benefits of cinema.
He made the cinema industry an
integral part of everyday
Guyanese life in the 1940s and
50s, and also projected an atti-
tude of style and fashion, atten-
tiveness and cordial communica-
tion, educational curiosity and
ambition for all to see.
Humphrey was not only
seen in the local newspapers

dapperly dressed in white linen
suit, panama hat, and two-toned
shoes, but on the streets and
sidewalks -.of Georgetown
where he spoke to anyone about
films featuring the great stars of
the day that would be shown
shortly and received requests
for classic favourites, etc. In-
deed, Humphrey's style and
fashion, like many if not most
city citizens and youths of that
period, emulated the positive
examples set by film stars and
certain film roles. It is not easy
or commonplace to have such
positive examples of behaviour
from many of today's film stars
and film roles because much
idealism and civil values have

tainment'. This is why films of
the great classic Hollywood and
European studios are essential
viewing now.
But how did these films and
stars of classic cinema posi-
tively affect the everyday life of
Guyanese and promote civility
among them? First of all, look-
ing at intelligent and complex
classic films, even those with
action and drama, encouraged lit-
eracy, an interest in human
thought, and the cause-and-ef-
fect processes of human actions
and behaviour. In order to un-
derstand and enjoy such films
and thereby unprove one's abili-
ties, one had to make an effort
to progress intelligently as an
individual. Secondly, when we
consider the influence of fash-
ion found in past classic films,
which, since the 1930s, became
one of its permanent good quali-
ties both from an individual and
social standpoint we are not
speaking of the clothes or
costumes actors wore when
they acted as Robin Hood,
Tarzan, pirates, kings and
queens etc, or their various

It has roots in the period when the former Soviet Union occupied the country.
"'Contemporary art is difficult for most Afghans to understand," said Timoer Hakimyar, a former
president of the Artists Union of Afghanistan.
"But it is a good thing to start, to encourage people to learn about the arts."
All art forms suffered heavily during the Afghan civil war and then during the Taleban takeover.
The Taleban movement regarded most art as "haram" forbidden in Islam particularly work that
showed any depiction of the human form.
As part of the prize, the 10 nominees are participating in a two-week workshop that aims to
explore the concepts of contemporary art.
Local and international artists have been invited to speak to Afghan artists to help them develop
new ideas.
Afghanistan has been wracked by 20 years of war and there is currently an insurgency mn many
parts of the country.
Organisers believe that contemporary art offers the Afghans a way of ymbolized their trauma and
discussing topics that are still largely taboo in society.
During one of the workshops, the artists were asked to buy items from the local market and make
a piece of contemporary art.
One participant's exhibit had twigs sticking out of a doorway, and the debris of a small two-per-
son figurine, a statue of a dog, a smashed light bulb, a cigarette butt and vegetables strewn on the

KABUL (BBC NEWS) Sara Nabil is not your typical 14-year-old artist in Afghanistan.
Her gold-painted, glass sugar bowl with strips of material sprouting from the top symbolises
the corrupt nature of marriage, she says.
When you lift the sugar bowl's lid, you see that the ends of the material are burnt and there are -
pieces of a broken mirror and bangles.
"Why should the life of an Afghan woman be like this?" asked Miss Nabil.
"When a woman gets married and moves into her husband's home, her life is ruined, her heart
broken and she slowly wastes away."
Welcome to just one of the entries for Afghanistan's first contemporary art prize.
Sponsored by the Turquoise Mountain a foundation dedicated to supporting local Afghan arts
and crafts and a local businessman, the prize aims to support the small contemporary art scene in the
country. ,
'Important communicator
More than 70 people from across Afghanistan submitted entries for the $2,000 prize and 10 art-
ists including Miss Nabil were shortlisted.
"Art is an important communicator and reflects what's going on in society," said Jemima Montagu,
one of the organizers of the prize.
"I think it's important that Afghanistan isn't just a place of trauma, but that it's a place where a
cultural life can begin to develop like another city.
Other successful entries by Afghan artists include a beaded snake in a glass jar; a pink rose whose
stem is pierced by pins; and a wooden lampshade in the shape of Afghanistan and painted in the
colours of the national flag.
Mohamlmad Ismael Zadran, 33, was so excited when he heard the radio advertisement for the prize
that he hired a taxi and packed it full of 200 pieces of art.

MOST people do not
know that bad oral
health and by extension
bad breath can partly be
a result of malnutri-
tion rather than ne-
glect to clean the
mouth properly. Like
the rest of the body, the
teeth, bones, and soft
tissue of your mouth
need proper nourish-
ment to stay healthy.
A balanced diet is a
daily intake of food and
drink that provides you
with enough proteins,
carbohydrates (starches
and sugar), fats, vita-
mins, minerals and water
for your health needs.
Proteins, vitamins and
minerals especially cal-
clum, phosphate and
fluoride, are needed for
strong decay resistant
teeth. Actually, teeth be-
gin to develop months be-
fore birth, so expectant
mothers need diets that
provide enough of these
nutrients for the baby's
teeth too.
In adults, a lack
of certain nutrients may
be a factor in periodontal
(gum) disease, the main
cause of tooth loss in
mature men and women.
Poor nutrition does not
actually cause periodon-
tal disease but may en-
able the disease to
progress, whereas an ad-
equate intake of ascorbic

acid (vitamin C) and B
complex vitamins and a
good calcium/phosphorus
balance may support pe-
riodontal health,
The book, 'Guide for
Daily Food Selections'
classifies food as follows:
Group 1: Fruits and veg-
etables, Group 2: Bread
and cereal, Group 3: Milk
and dairy products, and
Group 4: Meat and fish,
egg and nuts.
Adults generally
require daily, four serv-
ings from Groups 1 and 2
along with two servings
from Groups 3 and 4.
Pregnant women and chil-
dren under age 12 require
at least three servings
from Group 3, while teen-
agers and nursing nmoth-
ers need at least four
daily servings of the
same group. Your physi-
cians, dentist, or dieti-
cian may make special
recommendations based
on your own individual
exigericies. You may want
to ask about butter, mar-
garine, salad dressings,
syrups, honey, jam
sweets, pastries and al-
coholic drinks, because
they don't seem to be in
any of the four groups.
These are among the 'ex-
tras'; they are not neces-
sary for a balanced diet.
Many people have to
avoid them altogether. In
any event, for good

health, their use should
be limited.
The foods you
choose and your eating
schedule can be conse-
quential factors in how
much dental caries (tooth
decay) you have. The rea-
son is simple: Everything
you eat passes through
your mouth, where it is
available for use by
plaque. Dental plaque is
a thin film of bacteria and
slime mucinn from saliva)
that forms on everyone's
teeth in between
brushings. When you eat
foods that contain sugar
and starches, the bacte-
ria in plaque starts to pro-
duce acids that attack
and 'melt' tooth enamel.
The plaque holds these
acids on your teeth where
they can keep on attack-
ing the enamel for 20
minutes or more every
time you eat. Sooner or
later, the tooth enamel
may break down and you
will have the beginnings
of a cavity. So, a 'good'
tooth can start to rot in
just 20 minutes!
But then you
might ask whether or
not you should give up
eating sugar in order
to avoid cavities. It
would be hard to avoid
sugar entirely, and in
fact I would not advise
that even for a dia-
betic. The effective con-

PRACUE (BBC NEWS) The premiere of a new play by the former Czech President Vaclav
Havel at Prague's Archa Theatre signals a long-awaited comeback to the stage.
Mr Havel was: a world-renowned playwright when he entered politics in 1989, and Leaving -
atbout a politician's painful adjustment to a new life after leaving politics is his tirst play in 20
Vaclav Havel has also been away from politics for five years, but the 71-year-old playwright,
former dissident and ex-president can still draw a big crowd.
The small, subterranean cafe at Prague's Archa Theatre was packed with TV crews, photogra-
phers anld reporters as Mr Havel appeared at a press conference before Thursday night's premiere,
to explain the inspiration for Leaving.
It is his 19~th play and, according to the critics, one of his finest.
"It is built on an archetypal experience of a world that is -bollapsing, of collapsing values, the
loss of certainty," he told the assembled crowd.
"How come -when someone loses power, that person also loses the meaning of life?
"How come power has such charisma for some people that its loss means the collapse of that
person's world?"
It is a question Mr Havel president of Czechoslovakia from 1989 to 1992, and.of the Czech
Republic from 1993 to 2003~ might well have found himself asking since leaving office.
But Vaclav Havel denies that Leaving an absurdist comedy with strong tragic elements is
purely autobiographical.
He points out that he began the work in 1989, and had completed two-thirds of it before
events in this case, leading a popular revolution to bring do3vn Czechoslpvakia's communist re-
gime forced him to set it aside.
Instead, Mr Havel says the play was "enriched by my personal experience."
Leaving* tells the story of Vilem Rieger, the former chancellor of an unnamed country, strug-
gling to come to terms with his reduced role in life.
Mr Rieger's former deputy, Vlastik Klein, seizes power and forces him to move out of his
luxurious government-owned villa.
Mr Klein, surrounded by a coterie of shady businessmen, orders the~ orchard of cherry trees to
be cut down to make way for a shopping mall, casino and brothel.
Echo of reality
The play's references to Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard and Shakespeare's King Lear are less

Mr Havel's arch-rival and successor as president, Vaclav Klaus.
As prime minister, Mr Klaus oversaw a controversial period of privatization during the 1990s,
and the two politicians were frequently at loggerheads.
Again, however, Mr Havel denies the character is explicitly based on the currerit Czech presi-

LOG onto the website of Johannesburg's mammoth shopping complex, Sandton City, and
against a bright Helow bckground is an ill stration of a light bulb.

A vague advertising slogan for the uninitiated overseas visitor. But for switched-on South Africans.
it's a key selling point.
It is intended to suggest that the complex has its own independent power supply a real asset at
a time when power cuts have suddenly replaced hijacking as the dinner-table conversation centrepie~ce
among the middle classes.
People swap tales of lifts coming to a halt between floors; four-way intersections becoming muddled
car parks as the traffic lights flicker and die; and queues of frustrated customers outside hastily'-closed~

The joke goes: What did South Africa have before it had candles? Electricity.
But there are few laughs for those who have never- experienced the underdeveloped side of` South
Africa, cosseted away in leafy gated communities with electronic gates which, these day!s.; lc \re er
Inuch dependent on the vagaries of state energy provider Eskomn as to whether they will opecn.
Quite simply, South Africa, for years a beacon of hope illuminating the continent, is l~c~ing an1
energy crisis which threatens to overshadow the economic achievements of the post-apartheid govern-

Lights out

The new spending power of the rising black middle class has combined with soaring commodity
prices, foreign investment and a massive infrastructure boom to drive economic growth at an estimated
5% over the past few years.
In addition, massive government subsidies have gone toward connecting the poor masses to the
national grid, so that two-thirds of South Africa's 42 million people now have access to electricity -
almost double 1994 levels.
But in January, the sheer disconnect between demand and supply suddenly became clear, with
some of the worst nationwide blackouts in its history, which forced South Africa's gold and platinum
mines some of the largest metal producers in the world and the country's crown jewels to shut
for five days.
The result: Uproar.
The government stood accused of persistently neglecting South Africa's crumbling power infra-
structure, despite repeated warnings of the dangers.
Eskom has also come under fire for not dealing with a chronic skills shortage. Some critics blame
affirmative action policies that, they say, lead to the promotion of black employees over their more
experienced white counterparts.
There have been allegations of greed as well. Eskom executives pocketed fat salaries and bonuses
in the run-up to the crisis, while failing to invest in maintenance and adequate coal supplies, say angry
Eskom maintains wet coal was to blame, due to the heavy summer rains.

State of emergency

The government said the blackouts constituted a national electricity emergency. Since April, Eskom,
which produces 95% of South Africa's electricity, has embarked on a programme of what it cuphemis-
tically calls pre-emlptive load shedding. Please turn to page 11

Jailed rapist freed

peared for the appellant, while Senior Crown Counsel, Mr J Gonsalves-Sabola, represented the

Justice Luckhoo, who, as we earlier established, delivered the main judgment, noted that the appel-
lant was convicted for having carnal knowledge of one Seeranie without her consent on the 27th day of
November, 1965, which was contrary to Section 76 of the Criminal Law (Offences) Ordinance, Chap-
ter 10, and was sentenced to three years in prison.

According to Justice Luckhoo, the victim, an unmarried girl of 16, lived together with her mother, stepfather
and brother, Bobby, at a place known as Martin's Burial Ground, in the Mahaica Creek

He said that on the day in question, Saturday November 27, 1965, she was alone at home with her baby,
when, at about 10 am, the appellant came into the house. According to her evidence, he "hauled" her out of the
hammock, and when she shouted for help, slapped her on her face. She again hollered. At this, he dragged her
into the bedroom, threw her on the bed and took off her panty. It was at this point that she called for her brother.
She shouted out: "Help! Help! Bobby, Bobby! Bobby!" But, oblivious to her cries, he climbed atop her and
proceeded to have sexual intercourse with her. He then left.

She, in turn, put on back her panty, checked on her baby, went to the trench, took back off her panty and
washed it. However, although her mother and stepfather, who had been out drinking, returned home at about
6pm that day, she did not tell them anything until around 8am the following day. At that time, she said, she was
afraid of becoming pregnant and worried that she might get a baby.

According to one Ramdehur, who lived on the opposite bank of the Mahaica Creek, he saw the appellant
enter the said house about 10.30 am that day. He said that shortly after that, he heard the victim (whose voice he
knew) call out: "Bobby! Bobby! Bobby!" That was the last he heard from her, he said. He said that a little less
than half an hour after, he saw the appellant come out of the house, go down the steps, and walk away along a
htack to the west About one minute after, the victim came out of the house and stood on the platform.
Ramdehur said he had seen the appellant several times before sitting on the steps and in the yard of
that house, and that on the day in question, people could have seen him where he was standing. He
said he did not go to investigate; to his mind, he did not feel anything was wrong,

Doctor Balwant Singh, the Government Bacteriologist and Pathologist, found the presence of spermatoza
on th- girl's panties and on her bed sheet. Her mother told of the complaint made''to her the next moming and
Detective Constable Maltay produced a caution statement made by the appellant on December 1, 1965.

In a statement from the dock, the appellant had said: "I am 18 yests of age; I never wnt to Doreen without
her consent Nothing else, that is all."

Among other things, the girl had said that she was to have been married to lhe accused, but claimed that the
marriage had been stopped by the appellant's mother because she was pregnant at the time:

The girl had also said that one of the reasons why she~ told her parents about the incident between
herself and the appellant was because she was worried as she believed she might have gotten a baby.

The appeal was allowed and the conviction and sentence were set aside.

What you see. But is it a problem of a bad reality or bad perception? Just because it
doesn't look like things are going to turn out the way you want them to doesn't mean
that you still can't be happy. Apply a more positive spin to the news you receive
today there is definitely a silver lining in this cloud, you just have to work a little
bit harder to find it. Apply a new way of thinking to everything you see today.


Your attitude towards other people is very positive right now, and it will help you win
at home to who gets promoted to that plum position at work. By thinking the best of
your opponents, you will be able to endear them to you and convince them to give
you what you want! It's not mental trickery it's just respect. Showing someone
you respect them is the first step toward having them respect you.

Try to get away from the crowds today. Get off on your own and take a long walk
Outside. Let your thoughts wander, and you will come to some extremely important
realizations about yourself. This is a good time for some deep thoughts on some deep
"tissues. Something in your life needs to be addressed, and you've bceen putting it off for
way too long. Talking to others about it is a fine idea, but you already have all of the
right answers deep down inside of you.

-You might feel like you re banging your head against a wall today someone you're
"trying to break the ice with keeps on giving you the cold shoulder. While you are all
charm and sunshine, they are aloof and standoffish. What gives? Well, don't take it
personally. They might just not have the time to deal with you right now. They may
well be interested in giving you any time that they do have, when they have it. Know
when to say 'when' and move on to people who are more receptive.

Take a break from pushing yourself right now you deserve it! Challenging yourself
with more responsibilities at work might seem like a great way to get ahead, but it will
really only increase your stress level right now. Starting a difficult conversation with a
friend might seem like the way to resolve an issue, but today it could only make things
more strained between you two. Let the dust settle on any recent drama, and use to-
day to regroup and recharge for the days ahead

Give yourself a modest challenge that offers huge rewards today starting with your
environment. Pick up around your home and find a new way to reorganize your stuff.
Getting clutter out of the way is terrifically satisfying, and it's a task you can turn
your mind off to do. Give your grey matter a rest while you give your home a facelift.
Ask your roommate or partner to help you out, and you'll benefit from their great
ideas as well as all their physical labor!

You should know by now that only an intellectual connection can create a solid foun-
.dation for a real relationship, whether it's a romance, a friendship, or a business part-
nership. Sharing ideas and talking about controversial issues in order to understand
someone better are not only interesting, they are healthy. So steer clear of people who
want to keep things shallow with you even though they want to see you more often.
You need substance, not flash.

Y Scorpio
SThis is a day of conflicting ideas and opinions -- which could create tension at home,
Sbut could also create a sizzling hot connection in your social life. Nothing stirs up
=i your emotions like a heated debate, and when you are having that heated debate with
someone who is hot, the temperature is bound to climb! So don't shy away from dis-
agreement. Even if it causes a sibling or family member to get cranky, at least they will
know how you trlidy feel.

The good news is that you are at the beginning stages of a remarkable self-transforma-
tion. The bad news is that consequently, you might be feeling confused about what
.you want to do today. You won't have a lack of options, but you will have a lack of
interest in any of them. It might seem odd to start off a transformation with such
I) ambivalence, but just hang in there. It's once you start to sort through your options
that the real transformation begins.

If you think that you need to start making some lifestyle changes, then you do. When
you feel the urge to mix things up, you cannot continue with your normal routine and
AB have any sense of growth or progress. But you can relax these changes you make don't have
to be huge adjustments. They just have to be significant enough to make a difference. Cutting
back on fried foods or setting aside five more dollars every week in savings are examples of litle
things that can mean a lot.
Someone is going to find you quite attractive today although unfortunately, they might not
abe someone who you find very attractive. Learn how to take a compliment and move on! There
is no need to chat someone up if you have no genuine interest in them. In fact, it's not very nice.
Leading someone on even if you're just trying not to hurt their feelings is not the right
Sway to handle things. When someone says something nice, thank them. That's the extent of
your responsibility.
Without even trying, you will be daydreaming about the future today -- one w~r-d
could send you off on a mental tangent full of ideas about where you want to live next,
Swho you want to grow old with, or what kind of family you really want to have.
These revelations might feel like directives from your subconscious, but they: are merely
your imagination trying to work things out. What you think you want derperately
today might sound silly to you tomorrow, so don't commit to anything.

'Nature deficit disorder' is not a condition the medical profession recognizes, though common
sense suggests that children who take virtually no exercise and rarely get into the great outdoors
are unlikely to be healthy and are missing out on a lot of pleasurable experiences.
Behind the scenes at BBC One's Springwatch programme Dr Bird is urging his fellow GPs to
prescribe regular walks and exercise in green spaces for patients suffering from heart dis-
ease, depression, obesity and the like.
Referring patients to the natural environment rather than the pharmacist is a lot cheaper
than conventional pills and prescriptions and, he argues, is likely to be just as effective
in many cases.
But haven't we always known that contact with nature was good for us? Yes, says
Dr Bird.
."But we kind of lost it when we got clever with our science. As soon as we got anti-
biotics and we got technical, we felt we didn't need all that green stuff.
'Now we've realized all that technical stuff can treat you, but we also need the greenness to
provide a backdrop for preventing ill-health and for healing."
Happy feet
There's some evidence that patients themselves are willing to go along with the idea.
The results of a Mori poll, commissioned by Natural England and released exclusively to the
BBC, show that 94% of us would be happy for our GP to provide outdoor exercise instead of
prescription drugs, if he or she thought it would work.
Natural England has already established jointly with the British Heart Foundation a network
of "walking the way to health" initiatives. Many areas now have "walk and talk" or "health walk"
schemes, run by volunteers who encourage local people to gather regularly for walks ranging from
gentle rambles to mote demanding hikes.
Some GPs' practices are already prescribing exercise as an alternative to drugs.
The Culm Valley Integrated Centre for Health in Devon is one. A patiership of a dozen GPs, it occu-
pies a splendid new architect-designed building, more like an old-fashioned cottage hospital than a conven-
tional GP practice.
The Centre's symbol is "the Green Man", a kind of medieval nature spirit: outside the building is a herb
garden; inside they offer complementary medicine as well as conventional clinical consultations.
We met one patient, Roger Cowley, who'd been suffering from obesity and depression and had been
effectively confined to bed.
He's been given a "stepometer' that counts the number of paces he takes each day and receives help
from Ruth Tucker, an exercise adviser working with GPs.
His eventual target is to take 10,000 steps a day, walking in the fields around his home. So far, he
told me, he's up to 4,000 or 5,000.
"I think we've lost contact with our environment, and when you become de-rooted you be-
come alienated, and that's part of becoming unhealthy," says Dr Michael Dixon, one of the
"We know that the most sustainable treatment for depression is exercise, not anti-depres-
sants: a year later people who take exercise are still improving, when with anti-depressants the
Oter ghamte "s may take some persuading to prescribe a walk in the country.
Natural England polled 70 GPs and nurses and found that 61% recommended that patients
use green space, and 79% recommended walking informally.
But that still left a sizeable minority who didn't. (BBC News)

Natural remedies
The notion that nature does you good is one of the themes of this year's Springwatch series on BBC 2.
Bill Oddie, one of the Springwatch presenters and an enthusiastic bird-watcher, suffers from depid~ssion. He
has no doubt that contact with nature helps him.
"I know I'm really in trouble when I don't want to go outside and I can't bring myself to do it," he
"I've had three clinical depressions, which means going into hospital, and that's the stage where I know
nothing's going to help.
"But when you get a downer, and lots of people suffer from this, there is no question, every self -help book,
every doctor, every therapist will tell you: get out there in the fresh air, get yourself moving. It's to do with
fitness, it's also to do with a meditational thing."
Scientific support for Bill's beliefs comes from Dr William Bird, who combines a career as a GP with a part-
time mole as health adviser to Natural England.
Last year he produced a report for Natural England and the RSPB arguing that contact with nattire and green
space llas a positive effect on mental health, especially among children.
Some have gone further still. An American journalist, Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods,
coined the term 'nature deficit disorder' (an echo of the medically-established condition, attention defi-
cit disorder) to describe the deprivation, sometimes amounting to mental illness, of children who grow
up without contact with the natural environment.

St Jago senior Riker Hylton was sprinting across the
finish line, polishing off his team's impressive 4x100-meter b i%-se
relay heat performance at the 114th Penn Relays and the lB~ik, l~~ ~ ~ L~~~;Fi a~I Y~l~~i:
Franklin Field crowd was erupting In raucous cheers. g* .fr g !h
Hylton & Co finished in an impressive 40.72 seconds, all- ~-~ cs
earnn the top seed in the prestigious Championship of
Amenca. (St Jago failed to finish that mece. The championship
was contested among six high school squads from Jamaica,
one from, the Bahamas and only a single entrant Westlake
HS of Waldorf, Md. from the US)
Dwyer was preparing for his own 4x100-meter heat with the ;l ,
Midwood Hornets. Ylet he found himself joining in the celebra-
tion. 'They're very good," Dwyer said. "I always noot for them a
little."Dwyer isn't alone. A bevy of city high schools send track
squads to the City of Brotherly Love each spring to compete -: l
against world-caliber competition in the storied Penn Relays.
More often than not, those squads struggle. But that
never stops them from morphing into cheerleaders when
such Caribbean schools as St Jago take the track. After *
all. many of New York City's top track and field talents
have the West: Indies in their blood.
"There's a lot of Jamaican national pride here; that's
how it's always been," said Ramone Griffth, Dwyer's team-
mate at Midwood, who is originally from Guyana.
That sentiment holds true on the national track scene SS~r~:t
as well. Many of the athletes that have made the US an
international powerhouse have their roots in the West
Sanya Richards, a threat to win gold in Beijing this lii
summer, grew up In Kingston before moving to Florida_ r
at age 12. She says when she entered international
competition, she debated whether to run for the US.
or Jamaican national teams.
"I had to make a lst of pros and cons," she said. -
Many city athletes identify with those feelings, z-
even if they'll never share Richards' cachet. A quick I
examination of PSAL rosters reveals such talents as

Guyana until last year. Truman's Jonelle Dixron is a Guyanese Ramone Griffith (left), and his Midwood 4x100-meter relay teammates, Keith Nkrumah, TFrevarno Dwyer,

Midwood's Dwyer was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, just minutes away from St
Jago. If his family hadn't moved to Brooklyn in 1999, he might have been running along- cs
side Hylton.
"I would have gone to St Jago, probably," he said. "Those are my people."
Dwyer says he sometimes misses Jamaica, and that's partly why he joined the Hor-
nets' track squad. "Track is something I love," he said. i
It's a common refrain among city athletes of Caribbean descent, and that love often tik
helps speed the assimilation of talented sprinters into US schools. '
Sophomore sprinter Jodi Ann Baugh moved from Jamaica to White Plains Road in
the Bronx five years ago, and she says she still "misses" her home country.
When she walked through the doors of Truman HS last year, Mustangs girls track
coach Maritza Osorio got one look at her long legs and immediately begged her to join iB
the track team.Baugh put up little argument; she remembered running "street races" GUYANA 2008
in Jamaica, and the chance to compete on a track team made her feel more at
home. "When she asked me if I was interested, I was," Baugh said. Call for Expressioh of Interest
Osorio says she Interviews each athlete before she permits them to compete, and
she always askcs them why they want to rnm track. The coach often hears a familiar re- PROVISION OF TRANSPOlkTATION SERVICES
sponse: It's in their blood.
"This sport is in their genes," said Osorio, whose squad has just two runners who
are not of Caribbean descent.

THE Guyana Honorary Consulate in Barbados will once
again honour a selection of Guyanese nationals it la-
bels as 'unsung heroes' for their outstanding contribu-
tion to the Barbadian society*
The occasion is the Consulate's annual 'Pienic/Fun Day'
to mark Guyana's Independence anniversary billed for today
at the Esplanade, on Bay Street, one of the island's major thor-
oughfares on the shores of scenic Carlisle Bay, just a five-
minute drive from the capital, Bridgetown.

Among this year's awardees is a Bajan, which Consul
Norman Faria sees as being reflective of the event's overall
theme: 'Come together and build up Barbados and Guyana'.

Among Guyanese and Barbadian artistes who will be on
hand to provide the event with entertainment are Jenny
Gajadhat and her band which will perform chutney music;
Tony Carter, better known as 'The Mighty Gabby'; Cliff
Roberts, better known as 'The Barbadian Tom Jones'; and
organist Lawrence Francis.
Guyanese food, prepared by caterer Jenny and her
staff, will be on sale, while Barbadian Minister of For-
eign Affairs, Mr Chris Sinclair has kindly consented to
present the awards.

"This isn't something new. The Consulate has always wel-
comedd Bajans to its functions and we are glad to see
Guyanese and Bajans together," Faria is quoted in a release
as saying.
Noting that there are many Guyanese who have either mar
ried Bajans, or work alongside them and are members of Bar-
badian community organizations such as churches, credit
unions and trade unions, Faria said: "This is their home now,
but as Guyana continues to advance economically and other-
wise, we should see more Guyanese here taking up the op-
tion to return and contribute to their birthplace's develop-
ment, and Bajans investing in and visiting Guyana, and deep-
ening the regional integration situation. This all bodes well
for the future and I am very happy about it."

cleaner; Hansah 'Savo' Chintambi-Holder, a processor at the

V AT Policy 42-Raw Brown Sugar

The Guyana Revenue Authority continues to provide assistance to the general public on various
issues regarding the application of Value- Added Tax (VAT) to specific items in Schedule l of the VAT
Act, which lists goods and services that are zero rated for VAT purposes.

Schedu~le I, paragraph (q) (iii) of the VAT Act zero rates a supply of raw~ brown sugar. Therefore,
consumers will not pay VAT at the standard of sixteen percent when making purchases since
businesses are required to charge VAT at the rate of0% on raw brown sugar.

Not withstanding the above, other sugars such as granulated sugar, pr-ocessed sugars such as white
sugar, powdered sugar, icing sugar or confectioners sugar, castor/caster sugar, maple sugar and sugar
extracts including saccharine, sucralose, aspar-tame, cyclamate and Acesulfame-K are not zero rated
and will attract VAT at the standard rate of sixteen per~cent.

Inl addition, registered businesses which are involved in the sale of mixed supplies, that is, exempt
supplies and standard rated and/or zero rated supplies may file a claim every mntozh' to the Guyana
Revenue Authority for a refund of the excess credits attributable to, the tero-ratedlsupplies only if the
arlo rated items account for at least fifty percent ofthe amtount ofthe taxable supplies.

TTherefore, if 50%/ or more of the taxable supplies of a registered person are taxed at 0%, that person
can claim a refund of the credits attributable to the zero rated supplies each month.

Persons who require the list of zero rated items or still have queries with respect to VAT are
encouraged to contact the Department on Telephone No. 227-7929, Extension (200) and (201); or
write to the Commissioner, VAT and Excise Tax Department, 210'E' Albert and Charlotte Streets,

ral ability to charm animals.
He learned to read before other
children did, and possessed un-
usual athletic abilities.
No matter what Stev'e ac-
complished, he could never
measure up to Kenny. When
Steve married. his adoptive
mother remarked: "Kenny
would never have dated a
woman like that." It is almost
too cruel to add that, though
Steve cared for his parents in
their old age, they secretly left
all their assets to another rela-
tive. Their fantasy of Kenny
was the tool they used to jus-
tify their abuse of Steve.
Your- friend's devotion to
this woman also must confer a
psychic benefit. Perhaps he is
afraid of intimacy and afraid of
women. If he acknowledges this
as a problem, he can go to
therapy. Or he canl nurture this
fantasy all of his life. That's for
him to decide.
it sl ifl hish evotion is a ploy'
ing. He has no real intention of
getting married, so he tells
women: Jump through this
hoop and try to win me. When
you are tired of trying and want
to move on, remember that I
warned you I loved someone
If that is the case, he defi-
nitely won't seek help be-
cause there is nothing to
cure. Frankly, we suspect if
he genuinely wanted this
woman, he wouldn't be so
happy for her. He would be
hearing she'd give him a

WHAT do many higher caste Hindus in parts of India's Tamil
Nadu state still not share with the Dalits, formerly known as
They insist on separate glasses for drinking tea, and they do
not allow the untouchables to go to the same barber shops.
They ban them from temples, cremation grounds and river bath-
ing points, among other examples.
All this in a State that prides itself on being one of the most
politically progressive and educationally advanced parts of the ~oun-
But studies have found at least 45 different forms of 'untouch-
ability' being practised by upper caste Hindus against Dalits in Tanul

So a recent news item about a wall segregating higher caste Hmndu
residents from their Dalit counterparts in Uthapuram village In
MaLdurai district barely 600km (350 miles) from the State iCpIIal.
Maldras (Chennai) didn't exactly come as a surprise.
The higher caste Hindu residents say they won permission folr
the wall after inter-caste violence in the late 1980s. The wall ke~pl
Dalit people out of the main parts of the village.
Dalits comprise the majority of residents in Uthapuram and mlost
of them are not badly off either.
The authorities demolished part of the wall following an order
from the State government to allow Dalits to go where they wante~d
in the village. Chief Minister Muthuvel Karunanidhi himself an-
nounced the decision in the State assembly.
About 800 higher caste Hindus decided to leave the village and
seek refuge on a nearby hillock in protest against the decision. They
have now returned.
So, does the decision of the authorities to back the demolition
of the wall mark a turning point for tly Dalits in Tamil Nadu?
Ravi Kumar, a leading Dalit intellectual, is doubtful. "I don't
expect this to galvanise the Dalits lbr you don't have such walls

Raw deal
Still they continue to receive a rpif deal.
Economically, their lot has impitoved in recent years,, but they
continue to languish at the lower end of the income scale.
They have their constitutional quota of members in the State
legislature. They also have a couple of ministers in the cabinet.
But the Dalit ministers have to content themselves with rela-

tieu ti s'1t uspt ot discrimination within Hinduism.
More than 60% of Christians in Tamil Nadu are Dalits most
converted, hoping to find more freedom. But they still have very
little voice and are largely shunned ih the church.
They again find themselves humiliated, with separate pews, ser-
vices, churches, corteges, enclosures in cemeteries and so on.
.Recently, a tentative effort was made in a village called Erayur
to integrate the Dalits in all the services.
But a group of Christians prote ted and thiatatehed to go back

But they appear to want an undertaking that the cliurcli would
not do anything to "hurt" their sentiments.
"It is all unfortunate, but then bishops cannot go beyond a point
in pushing the integration agenda," says Father Vincent Chinnadurai,
chairman of the State Minorities Commission which advises the
Tamil Nadu government on how to improve nunonity nights.
"The congealed mindset takes a pretty long time to come to
terms with the realities of the moderniworld."
Clearly, it is going to be a pretty long haul for the untouch-

IT IS six o'clock in the evening and there is a mad scramble to bundle
bags tins of oitand young childrenn on to thelast nighttrin ouut~o ~
the border with Zimbabwe.
There is still an hour to go, but the passengers have already grabbed
their seats and are settling down for the 12-hour ride.
Mingling with the traders who travel this route regularly are Zimba-
bwean refugees, terrified by the xenophobic violence they have witnessed
in the past few days, in settlements in and around Johannesburg.
Anti-foreigner sentiment has led to homes being destroyed, women
being raped and people being burnt alive. .
Not what you expect in a country preparing to welcome visitors for
the 2010 World Cup.

A "lf-ou drve away kom
where the Zimbabweans ame beat-

Here thousands of miserable
migrants from Mozambique are
trying to fend off the lohannesburg

vised fires in the dark.
They also want to leave but
did not make it on to the 10
coaches laid on by their country's
embassy earlier in the day to give
them safe passage home.
"I think l amt going to be doing

coach driverJorge Meneles, who at

was trying to match up with the limited seats on his bus.
"I have never seen anything like this beforec not in South Allicar. It is

This sprawling bus stop-culg refugee camp outside Primrose polcee

Sudan's Darfrregion.
These are people used to living in homes and being wann.
Bicycles, madios and kitchenware scattered next to suitcases hint that
these people were.not destitute.
They once had good jobs working as gardeners, taxi drivers and fann
labourers, but have come to be seen as a threat to citizens of the country
that has hosted them.
In the words of so many South Africans who roundly condemn the
violence, foreigners do not deserve to be treated in this way.
Even so, the South African government should have seen the
resentment coming. (BBC News)

Regular patrol
The district police office in Nepalgunj arrested five people on charges of trafficking tiger
and leopard skins and bones in the last five years.
"'These people were arrested from areas where we have our regular patrolling," said deputy
superintendent of police ~Ram Govrinda Pariyar.
"But, unfor~tantately, the border between Nepal and India is open and smugglers can come
in from anywhere."
Wildlife officials have noticed that traffickers are indeed taking undue advantage of the
open border.
"With the help of our informers, we have repeatedly confirmed that Nepalgunj is the trading
centre of illegal wildlife, and this place also sees tiger bones from Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh
of India," said Ramesh Thapa, the assistant warden of Bardiya National Park which is near
the brder.Please turn to page 23

the Nepal-China border." says2 Mr Tha~pa.
To find out how such illegal goods could be smluggled out through the regulated border, I travelled
the Arniko highways that links Kathmlandu with Tibet.
During the entire journey of nearly 100km1. there wa;s just one checkpoint. Police officials there
said traffickers often used unregulated moulntain trails to smuggle such prohibited goods across the
Ropes and pulleys
At the border p~oint. known as Tatopani. customs and police officials refused to make any ofl~cial
comment. But, requesting anonymity. some customs field staff told the BBC that at night, smugglers
fix ropes at blith ~sides of a rivulet that separates the Nepal-Tibet border. Then. with the help of a
pulley. they smuggle items in and out.
WWF-Nepal's office in Kathmandu said it too had learnt about the rope and pulley Idea.
*We have been trying to [raise] all these things with the Chinese side, but it has not been an easy
experience trying to work together." said W'WF official Diwakar Chapagain.
Just outside the Tatopani customs office. I saw for myself two impounded trucks with illegal
cargoes of red sandalwood.
The vehicles had double-sided number plates. One side had a Chinese diplomatic number while the
other carried a Nepalese registration. The Chinese embassy in Kathmandu did not respond to a request
for an interview. Nepal's forest minister Matrika Prasad Yaday, whose Conmmunist Party of Nepal (Maoist)
has just won a major election, said his party will take action once it reaches office.
"If we come to power, all those who have been arrested as wildlife traders but who are actually
only porters and the lowest strata in this trade will be released, and the real traders in the upper
echelon will be arrested," he told the BBC before the polls.
There are allegations from conservation groups that the Maoists used illegal wildlife products to
fund the insurgency, an allegation the former rebels reject.
The Maoists might like to take action against wildlife traffickers, but political and eco-
nomic issues are likely to be more pressing factors as they try to lead a new coalition govern-
ment. (BBC News)

`Safe passage' for wildlife traffickers...
Conservationists say poaching has completely wiped out tigers in Siraska National Park
in the Indian state of Rajasthan. A recent study showed that the total tiger population in
India has declined from about 3,000 a few years ago to about 1.500 today.
A joint report from the UK's Environment Investigation Agency and the Wildlife Protection Soci-
ety of India found that all tiger and most leopard skins reached Tibet and other Chinese provinces
from India via Nepal. "Most traders in Tibet, and Linxia and Gansu provinces. claimed to have con-
nections in India a~nd Nepal," stated the report of an investigation carried out between 2004 and 2006.
Conservationists and wildlife officials say illegal wildlife goods arriving from India were previ-
ously transported to trans-Himalayan regions such as Dolpa and Mugu before being smuggled out to
Tibet through mountain trails.
Today, they say the regular route used by smugglers is the highway which ends in Kathmandu.
From there, the goods are transported to Tibet.
'"This route is much more convenient, because you can drive with the consignments all the way to

Essentially, this is a nationwide rota of scheduled power cuts that affect different neighborhoods
Different times though unplanned power cuts still occur when the grid becomes shaky and Eskom
eds to dump voltage quickly.
From 5 May, however. these are to be largely suspended, as Eskom sees encouraging evidence that
10%~ savings target is on track to be achieved.
But celebrations are muted as the government's perceived failure to cater adequately for future
owh has created a cloud of uncertainty for companies, investors and households, who are braced for
rsof problems while Eskom rushes to make plans.
There are also serious worries that the power crisis may black out the World Cup. which South
frica hosts in 2010. despite assurances of a successful event.


The power cuts have caused havoc for every industry, from manufacturing to musicals even
;ightening tourists by bringing Cape Town's famous cable car to a grinding mid-air halt.
Emigration lawyers and companies selling diesel-charged generators seem to be the only beneficia-
Generators have been a saviour for many large franchises and international operations.
But the cost is high one restaurant forked out 250,000 rand ($32,983; 16,626) for one -
laking them unaffordable for most small operations.
For independent retailers, a power disruption means abrupt gloom, dead credit card readers, disen-
aged security tags and no CCTV, heightening the risk of theft.
For food shops, such as Sandton City's gourmet delicatessen, the Bread Basket, it means three
vens full of still-born quiches, lasagnes, cakes and bread rolls.
The Bread Basket's owner, Panos Avraamides, estimates that each power cut costs his business
etween 5,000 rand alnd 15,000 rand, depending on whether it is a planned outage or unscheduled.
Butchers a~rguably have it even worse, as they watch their prime cuts lose their cool in warming
:frigcrator cases. Restalurants are in a similar position,

Dim economic outlook?

Many economists have shaved about half a per cent off their 2008 economic forecasts as a result
f the power problems, with the most pessimistic predicting growth of below 3% for 2008.
This is much lower than the 4%/ predicted by South Africa's well-regarded Finance Minis-
,r Trevor Ma~nuel in his Febr~uary Budget.
"The big damlagee was done at thle beginning of the year when businesses were totally un-
repared," said Dennis Dykes. chief economist at Nedbank. which is owned by financial gi-
nt. Old Mutual.
Brwin Roode, the owner of Cape Town-based property consultants Rose & Associates,
dds that a virtual halt to new private sector construction will not help.
"Eskoml has said that in futu~re, electricity certificates would not be granted for any devel-
pmic~nt ht Tlhe shutdown of the miines andi subsequent crimnp in production due to electricity restric-
ions is also likely to cause a "punchy dent" in GDP in 2008, says Mr Dykes.
However,, other analysts consider that with international platinum and gold prices being
r pvn ever higher by the energy crisis in South Africa, mining groups could still achieve healthy
As a result, the main stock index, the JSE All Share, which is dominated by mining firms, has
otcheid up a ijrics i a n-ime highs recently, reaching 33,164.3 on 19 May, even as investors sell off

Consumer woes

South African consumers are looking at a 100% increase in their electricity bills by 2009 if Eskom
,ets approval from South Africa's electricity regulator, Nersa. But it is widely expected that those that
an afford it will be hit much harder, in order to support those who cannot.

Use strong verbs when you write.

A great writer, Thurston Knight, wrote by concentrating on using strong verbs, not
adjectives, to create powerful descriptions such as this one:
The wind dropped, anld clouds froze, and the sails of a native canoe sagged.
i. What to do
Rewrite the following sentences, replacing weak verbs with stronger ones that will paint
a vivid picture. (You may make other changes, too,1if you wish.)
1. As the wind blew, the trees tossed.
2. A Canter that looked as if it were held togetherwith bandages and tape came in our
direction .
3. Its driver wore an orange jumpsuit and matching cap that caught the eye of everyone
on the street.
4. When the truck got closer: to.us, the driver motiohed.
5. He spoke, but we couldn't heaS what he said over. the~ racket his car wyas making.

SRemember that a verb is a word that expresses action or a state of being and is
necessary to roake a statementt.
SBusiness people work. *
The canteen closed too soon.
j Artists are creative.
'A verb has the ability to express time: present, past, and future, by means of-tense.
PRESENT TENSE: We hear a commotion outside.

Dear boys and girls,
Let's start on a trail of new beginnings today. First, you need to know the extent of
topics, concepts, and aspects of which you are to have mastery. Second, you need .
to have clear knowledge about yourself in terms of what you are doing and how you
intend to proceed in your study. Also today we extend wishes of good examination
results to those who tried to prove themselves this past week. Be careful!
Love you.

The Passage
It was a May 1990 news conference on insomnia and sleep deprivation that finally did -it.
For years Anastasia Toufexis, health find behaviour editor at Time magazine, had been
pushing for a cover story on sleep a hot topic in the early 1980s that seemed to cool
during the middle of the decade.
In the late 1980s, though, reports came out that indidated the yibttential -for human error
increases when the factor of sleep deprivatiorris added to the equation. An~alyses~indicated
that when people work~ horrendous hours, lack of sleep ctin affect all aspects of their lives
including performance on the job arid at school.
During the same period, Toufexis began to see more. studies on sleep,. including ~figtres.
showing that, next to alcohol, lack of sleep was a riajor factor in road accidents. Sleep had
also.becomne a personal issue for'Toufexis and many others. Everywhere Toufexis turned .
she heard friends and colleagues even herself meaning about how groggy they were. "I '
was keeping lousy hours because of our work schedule," Toufexis said. "I wondered, after .
thirteen years at Time, wasn't a lack of sleep taking a toll on me?"
It was the news conference on sleep that clinched things, though. Among the top
national sleep researchers who spoke at the New York City conference was Dr. William
Dement, director of the sleep centre at Stanford University. Dement synthesized the
growing body of research and everyday complaints into a disturbing statement: sleep
deprivation had become a public health hazard.
After hearing Dement's remarks, Toufexis was convinced that the time had come for a
"ibig act" a Time cover story on sleep.

What to Do
Note how the sentences in the passage vary in structure and in length. In addition to
simple sentences, and there are complex sentences:
Example: Simple sentence Sleep had also become a personal issue for Toufexis and

Example: Complex sentence Analyses indicated that when people work horrendous
hours, lack of sleep can affect all aspects of their lIves, including performance on the job
and at school.

Create Differe~nt Types of Sentences When you Write
Look at the following examples of sentence types.

A complex sentence has one main clause and one or more subordinate clauses.
Example: Complex Sentence
I like Simon Sandy's paintings because they depict real-life country characters.

Example: Compound-Complex Sentence
I view paintings that are done by James Wight and I enjoy them.

What to do
1. Write a simple sentence or choose one in the passage.
2. Rework it making it a compound sentence.
3. Rework the simple sentence again to make it part of a complex sentence.
4~. Rework your compound sentence into a compound-complex sentence.
5. Write a fifth related sentence, telling what type of sentence it is.

Identifying Simple and Compound Sentences
On your paper write simple sentence or compound sentence to identify each
sentence. (Remember that a single main clause can have a compound subject or a
compound predicate.)

1. Nathaniel Currier was a printer, and James Ives was an executive.
2. Currier favoured current events; he produced prints of ships, battles, and news events.


We heard a commotion outside.

FUTURE TENSE: We will hear a commotion outside.

Use suitable verbs in the following sentences:
?. The solitary hawk ....slowly high above the green valley.
2. It ....black against the sky.
3. Sensing the hawk's presence, the rodents ....in the grass.
4. Riding rising air currents, the hawk ....the countryside in search of food.
5. Its flight ....effortless.

NOTE: When you write a composition, vary the sentence structures to create interest.



I wish the hard part
Would be forms. Catching the trees right,
getting the sea to cooperate.
Or the sun, coaxing the sun out
when everything is right
and you want it shining.
But all this is easy, soothing, and natural.
As bright and spotless as a dinner counter.

The real difficulty is eyeing the flat,
plain, and level. Scaffolding,
'the high wires, the firefighter's ladders,
disarrange the subject. Then
an ocean has thoughts; the wind
calls collect, a whispering relative. Your signature
Is on everything
saying names and hiding shapes.

Comment: Responding to poetry isn't easy sometimes. If you were taught to read and
write poetry at the same time, it would not be hard for you now. Anyhow, the poem
above is for you to read and discuss with your study partners. When you get to
understand and like it, try responding to the two questions below.

1. Why does the poet suddenly bring in the image of a dinner counter? What does it
point to?
2. How does thinking get in the way of seeing in the second stanza? What details does
the poet stand on?

By Saibal Chatterjee in

Indian film-makers are
spreading their wings and go-
ing global.
Several nutior Indian directors
- Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Jahnu
Barua, Sudhir Mishra and Pan
Nalin, among others are in
Cannes to firm up plans for films
targeted at the global market.
This is against the backdrop
of strategic partnerships linking
frontline Bollywood players like
Reliance Big Entertainment
(RBE) and Eros International
with stars and studios in Holly-
Chopra, whose previous film,
Eklavya The Royal Guard, was
India's official entry for the Os-
cars last year, will shoot his first
English-language feature, Broken
Horses, early next year on loca-
tion in New Mexico.
"The film will be ready for
release by 2009 end," the direc-
tor said.
Broken Horses, being co-pro-
duced by Chopra's company and
RBE, has screenwriter Nick
Pileggi on board as script consult-
He was nominated for Oscars
for films like Goodfellas, Casino
and American Gangster.
Love story
A few years ago, Chopra was
close to directing The Fifth
Move, an English-language psy-
chological drama with Hollywood
"I haven't abandoned that
project. I have only deferred it. I
did not want to start my Holly-
wood career with a small film,-
he said.
'Though neither Chopra nor
RBE is willing to divulge the bud-
get f`or Broken Horses. its pro-
duction cost is projected to be in
excess of $20M.
Veteran Assamese director
Jahnu Barua, who has just
wrapped up a new Hindi film,
Har Pal. starring Dharmendra,
Preity Zinta and Shiney Ahuja. is
now set to film Homing Pigeons
a period love store to be shot ex-
te sively in the UK.
"We are currently casting for
two British actors and one
A~ssamese actress," reveals Barua.
Cannes regular and film-
malker Sudhir Mishra is close to
a-~lising The Nawab. which has
ocn long in the making, the

Jolie and her companion, Brad Pitt at the premiere Tuesday of 'Changeling' in Cannes.
With them are Clint Eastwood and his wife, Dina Ruiz.

ANGELINA Jolie has said
her role as a single mother
whose son goes missing in
Clint Eastwood's film
Changeling let her "spend
time" with her late mother.
Critics have praised the
1920s period drama, which is
based on a true story.
Jolie and Eastwood are at
the Cannes Film Festival, where
Changeling is up for the presti-
gious Palme d'Or.
The actress, who is preg-
nant with twins, said it "was a
way to kind of revisit my
mother after (her) passing."
Jolie said her mother, who
died last year, was "very sweet.
But when it came to her chil-
dren, she was a lion."
Variety called the film
"emotionally powerful and sty-
listically sure-handed," while
Screen Daily said it boasted a

"career-best" performance from
its leading lady.
Jolie, 32, said she could not
"imagine anything worse" than
losing a child and had tapped
into her own "pain and frustra-
tion" in playing the role.
"Children in danger is about
the highest form of drama you
can have," agreed Eastwood.
The veteran director, who
turns 78 next week, was last in
Cannes with 2003's Mystic
River, another film about a miss-
ing child.
Not winning the Palme
d'Or on that occasion, however,
did not deter him from compet-
ing for the award again.
S"To play it out of competi-
tion is kind of playing it safe,"
he said. "I'm not above it I put
it out there for what it is."
Asked why he had not cast
himself in the film, Eastwood

said there was no suitable role
for him.
"I'm gradually working my
way round to spending more
time behind the camera than in
front," he added.
The actor and director will
introduce a special screening of
his 1971 film Dirty Harry at the
festival but denied he was con-
sidering reprising the central
role. "That rumour's incorrect,"
he joked. "Dirty Harry would
not be in a police department at
my age."
Reviews editor of trade paper
Screen Daily, Fionnuala
Halligan, said she did not be-
lieve Eastwood would be tak-
ing home a prize from
Cannes this year. "It didn't
feel like a Palme D'Or film
to me; it's more an Academy
Award-type of film," she told
the BBC.

Hollywood's leading indepen-
dent studio w th a catalogue of
over 12,000 titles, to facilitate
the release of Indian films in the
American mainstream and home
video space as well as ease the
way for Bollywood remakes of
Hollywood films.
Significantly, the Indian
government's National Film De-
velopment Corporation
(NFDC), which had dropped
out of the production radar, is
back in business.
One of the several films
that it is co-financing is Naye
Joote (New Shoes), to be
Jointly produced by Britain's
Rcads HHolmes and

Nautch Girl and the John
Company, a sweeping Raj-era
"It is a film that can't be
made without international
participation. The cast, crew
and even a part of the funding
would have to come from
more than one country. I hope
to have everything in place by
early next year," said the di-
Mishra is in touch with
prospective co-production
partners. "I'd be able to make
a formal announcement soon,"
he said.
Paris-based Indian film-
maker Pan Nalin has already
announced an internationally
oriented English-language cin-
ematic venture on the life and
times of the Buddha. It is
scheduled to go into produc-
tion by September.
Titled Buddha, the film
will present 'contemporary
treatment' of a period story.
Nalin said.
"I do not want to make a
biopic aimed only at Bud-
dhists. It will be an accessible
human drama, not a reverential
narrative. The idea is toeel
the man behind the myth."
Nalin's Buddha will be
produced by his own com-
pany. Monsoon Films, on a
budget that could touch
Mahindra & Mahindra,
the Indian automobile giant
that has floated a new film
fund, is financing the film.

'Hollywood films with In-
dian stories'
Nalin, director of films like
Samsara and Valley of Flowers,
said: "Buddha will be the big-
gest film of my career by far.
"At one level, the film will
dramatise a road trip Gautam
Buddha undertook with some
friends and disciples. It will also
be an epic love story revolving
around the father-son and hus-
band-wife relationships."
Mumbai-based Sanjay
Srinivas is ready with a much
smaller film, God Lives in the
Himalayas, which has been
picked up for global distribu-
tion by Los Angeles-based
Longtale International.
The Nepali-language film
has an all-Nepalese cast. The
film follows four children on a
journey to discover God after
one of them loses his mother in
a terrifying fire caused by a re-
ligious ritual.
maker Vijay Singh, who divides
his time between Paris and
Delhi, is in search of funding for
his screen adaptation of his own
novel Whirlpool of Shadows,
about the 19th Century mar-
riage of the Nawab of Awadh
and an Englishwoman.
No stranger to international
co-productions, Singh's other
directorial credits are Jaya
Ganga and One Dollar Curry.
"The contemporary per-
spective in the story," he said,
"is provided by a British ac-
tress who flies to India to play

tors that are seeking to go glo-
Indeed, this trend is being
fuelled by the international am-
bitions of cash-rich Bollywood
production and world distribu-
tion sector players.
RBE has swung develop-
ment deals with companies
owned by Hollywood stars
Nicholas Cage, Brad Pitt, lim
Carey, Tom Hanks and George
These strategic partner-
ships, says RBE's creative con-
sultant Prasoon Joshi, could in
the long run yield "Hollywood
films with Indian stories.

seemed set to cha enge the
Aussies' total at 260 for five
when Bravo was paired with
the resolute Chanderpaul.
But Chanderpaul cleverly
shielded Edwards from the
ram aging Lee, picking up a-e
sing e off the last ball while hit-
ting the occasional boundary,
including two classic push
drives through extra cover f~or
But Lee, regarded as the
fastest bowler in the world,
stunned Chanderpaul with a
short delivery, which did not
get up as much as the bats-
man anticipated as he tried
to duck out of the way.
It caught the stubborn
Guyanese left-hander on the
back of the helmet and he fell
to the ground on his back and
was in a daze for a few mo-
Lee, showing his concern,
was the first to rush to
Chanderpaul's assistance and
play was held up for about f'ive
minutes as West Indies physio,
C.J. Clark revived Chanderpaul,
who was greeted with warm
applause as he rose to his feet
to continue his innings.
Chanderpaul was 86 at the
time and Edwards, who was
eventually caught behind off
Johnson, stayed with him until
he reached his century with a
straight drive for two off Clark.
After he was last out hit-
ting a high full toss from
MacGill to mid-on,
Chanderpaul went to have a
precautionary examination
for the blow on his head but
his valour seemed to inspire
both Edwards and Powell as
they came out in the final
hour to rock Australia with a
fantastic display of fast,
swing bowling.

After adopting a possitve
approach, and hitting 10
fours and two sixes, Morton
departed in disappointing
fashion, in the penultimate
over before lunch for 67, just
three short of his best Test
He had shared a rousing
fourth-wicket alliance of 128

he tried to clear mid-on but
Stuart Clark moved smartly to

From a lunch score of 197
for four, the Windies pro-
gressed merrily along with
Chanderpaul and Bravo, who
hit four fours and three sixes
in a cavalier 60-ball knock of
46 featuring in a fifth-wicket
stand of 64 runs.
Bravo, only just in the
Caribbean a few days before
the Test started after play-
Ing mn the Indian Premier
League, seemed to be still in
the Twenty20 mode when he
got off the mark with a six

MacGill, who was roughly
treated by the dynamic
Bravo also lifted MacGill
for two more sixes but paid
the price for not curbing his
natural aggressive style when
Lee re laced the expensive
MacGi 1.
Lee responded admira-
bly and triggered a middle
and lower order collapse in
which four wickets fell for
just eight runs by sending
back Bravo, wicketkeeper
Denesh Ramdin, without
scoring, and Powell (3) to
finish with three for 63 off

LOS ANGELES, (Reuters) -
The Los Angeles. Lakers
sparked by Kobe Bryant,
cruised to a 101-71 victory
over the San Antonio Spurs
on Friday to take a 2-0 lead
in their best-of-seven West-

first time this month, top-scored

Guard Tony Parker led the
Spurs with 13 points and cen-

points and 16 rebounds.
The series switches to
San Antonio for the next two
encounters with Game

"It's going to be a big chal-
lenge for us," Bryant told re-
porters of the task facing San
Antonio on the road.
"San Antonio, they are go-
ing to up the pressure and we
saw a little bit of that tonight.
"They're going to try to
bring the pressure up full
court, take us out of our of-
fence, out of our rhythm. We
need to do a better job on our
automatics to kind of break
down that pressure.
The Spurs boast a perfect
6-0 record at home this post-
season but accept they need to
improve their all-round game
against the confident Lakers.
"There is no comfort being
down 0-2 ever," Spurs center
DunW anes going home and
one of two things is going to
happen. Either we are going to
turn it around and make this
thing into a series or we're not.
"We are confident that we

are a very good home team but
you hate to put yourself in a
situation where you are down
0-2. It is what it is and we are
going to go home and try and
change the tide of it."

shot three-of-three from the
field as the Lakers countered
with a 9-0 run to lead 46-37

Basile wants World Cup win

for Argentina, not admiration

BUEOSIES, (Reuters) 7Argentina coach Alflo Basile
said he was proud of the respect and admiration his team
laad earned but his priority was to win the World Cup.
"Argentina's target is to wuin the World Cup, that's the end
of the matter," he said inan interview with Radio Nacional.
"Argentina has amazing prestige, the team is admired all
around the world and that makes us very proud. But we want
to win the World Cup."
Argentina, often criticised in the past for rough play
and gamesmanship, have changed their reputation com-
pletely in the last decade sad are now praised for their
stylish, attacking football.
Many critics prefer their play to the more physical ap-
proa lh that has been adopted by h~eighbours and arch-rivals Bra-

However, Argentina have suffered a dip in terms of re-
sul~i in recent years.
They have not won a major tournament since the 1993
Coipa America in Ecuador and have not progressed beyond the
World Cup quarter-finals since 1990.
In that period, Brazil have won the World Cup twice and
the Copa America four times,
Basile heaped praise on mercurial playmaker Juan Roman
Riquelme, who has helped Boca Juniors reach the semi-finals
of the Libertadores Cup.
"Riquelme is a phenomenori," he said in the interview broad-
cast on Friday night. "He was not fully fit but he created seven
goalscoring chances," he added, referring to Riquelme's perfor-
mance in the 3-0 win at Mexico's Atlas on Wednesday.
"That's why he's the national team's conductor, a very
important player for my-team. There's nobody like
Basile also singled out captain Javier Zanetti but said he
was not sure if the 34-year-old Inter Milan player, who has
won a record 118 caps, would reach the 201.0 World Cup.
"Hehas helph sique: of a O- te I-d.obd nw o

A high-scoring thriller
which produced 412 runs fi-
nally went the way of
Rajasthan Royals, as they
edged Chennai Super Kings
to record their tenth win of
the IPL and further consoli-
date their position at the top
of the table.
After Graeme Smith had
powered Rajasthan to 211,
Chennai put up a spirited run-
chase, thanks largely to Albie
Morkel's 40-ball 71. In the
end, though, his effort wasn't
enough, which means Chennai
still have work to do to make
it to the last four.
Smith's 51-ball 91, and
has stunning 127-run open-
ing-wicket stand with
Swapnil Asnodkar, put
Rajasthan firmly in control
at the halfway stage, but
Chennai mounted a remark-
able reply, with three of

their top four making signifi-
cant contributions.
Morkel, Parthly Patel and
Suresh Raina ensured they kept up
with the asking rate throughout --
30 were needed off the last 15
balls, when Rajasthan tightened up
their act with accurate bowling
and spirited fielding, with
Mohammad Kaif putting in an
outstanding performance around
the long-on and long-off bound-
Mahendra Singh Dhoni,
who came in at the fall of
Parthiv's wicket, chipped to
long-off from Sohail Tanvir in
the 18th, and after S Badrinath
feH in the next over, Chennai
were left with 15 from the last
over. With Morkel still around,
Chennai had a chance, but
Tanvir was superb, pitching it
full, on the stumps, and giving
away just four runs.
Eleven were needed off the last

two, and when Morkel flicked
one straight to short fine leg.
Chennai had fallen short again.
Unlike their previous run-
chase, though, when they
made a hash of a target of 127,
there was no shame in losing
this one-
A target of 212 was a stiff
one, but Chennai's start sug-
gested they were hardly in-
timidated. After Stephen
Fleming's early run-out, Raina
and Parthiv carted the bowlers
all around the MA
Chidambaram Stadium in a 70-
run stand that came off just
6.5 overs.
Raina has struggled over
the last few matches, but here
he was unstoppable, driving
and cutting fluently through
the off side, and pulling
Munaf Patel when he
dropped it fractionally short.
When Raina fell, miscuing

Warne to midwicket. it didn't
hamper the run-chase at all, for
out walked Morkel. While most
batsmen preferred to move to
leg and make room, Morkel's
chosen method was to stay still
at the crease. and then hit
straight through the line over
long-on and long-off.
To anything drifting on
leg stump, he used the short-
arm pull or the slog-sweep to
excellent effect. A couple of
huge sixes off Yusuf Pathan
and Munaf got him on his
way, and Warne wasn't spared
either, as a slog-sweep easily
cleared midwicket.
Parthiv wasn't as explosive,
but he played his part well, in-
terspersing well-timed hits to
the boundary -- including a su-
perb straight six off Warne --
with clever nudges on both sides
of the stumps to give the strike
back to the more powerful
strikers. He was clearly running
out of steam, though, and his
dismissal brought out Dhoni,
who could have been the ideal
man for the situation. As it
turned out, though, Rajasthan
had enough runs to the board to
edge this one.
The match produced 39

fours and 18 sixes. and that
was largely due to a perfect
batting strip: the pace was
even, allowing batsmen to hit
through the line, while there
was no seamn or swing mov~e-
ment for the bow~lers. Add a
super-quick outfield and swerl-
tering heat to the equation, and
there was little to cheer for
the fielding team.
With their team already
in the semi-finals, Warne
experimented with team
strategy, choosing to bat
first, and the move paid off
immediately: the third ball,
from Makhaya Ntini, was a
no-ball, the free hit was
promptly deposited over
long-on by Asnodkar for six,
and that signalled the start
of the deluge.
Both batsmen hit cleanly
through the line of the ball,
freeing their arms to crash
boundaries through the off side
or pull over midwicket.
Manpreet Gony suffered
early, as Asnodkar drove and
pulled him for boundaries, and
Smith soon joined in the fun,
cutting and flicking Albie
Morkel for fours.
To make matters worse for


DINESH Karthik and the
Delhi Daredevils' misfiring

thrilling five-wicket victory

the Chennai Super Kings, who
have a game against the lowly
Deccan Chargers, and may need

matches, including a tough one

Rajasthan Royals, to make it to
the final four.
After Dwayne Smith took
two-in-two in the eleventh over
to put Mumbai on top, Karthik
and Manoj Tiwary kept Delhi
afloat with a 41-run stand.
Karthik, using his feet to dis-
concert the slower bowlers, was
the aggressor -- he carved Smith
past mid-off for four and then
paddle-scooped him past short
fine leg for another and then
carted a Jaysuriya full toss into
the crowd behind midwicket to
ensure Delhi kept pace with the

KINGSTON. Jamaica. (CMlC, Lawyers for suspended West
Indian cricketer Mlarlon Samuels have announced their in-
tetntion to challenge the two-year ban imposed on the Ja-
In a press release here yesterda), Jamaican attorneys K.
Churchill Neits and Delano Harrison, both Queen Counsel, said
they believe an application for judicial review stands a realistic
chance of success and plan ro pursue it actively.
Firstly, they claim there was no evidence in the hearing
that Mlukesh Kochbar, was a bookmaker.
"From the outset. we whlish to make it pellucidly clear that
we propose to challenge the findings of the majority (3 10 1) by
waJ of judicial enq~uiry as we believe a most grate2 injustice has
been done by their fmnding of our chent's hlabllby of one of the
ICC (Intemational Cricket Council) disciplinary offences," the
statement said .
The lawyers said there was a need to clarify the "many
misunderstandings and mis-
conceptions" that have arisen
from Samuels' hearing before
the WICB's disciplinary com-
mittee in St Lucia oe Mlay 9.
Samuels w~a* charged with
receipt of "'any money, benefit
or other reward (whether hnan-
cial or otherwise) which could
brmng (him) or the game of
cricket into disn-pute."
Ele was also cited for en-

in the opinion of the executive
board, relates directly to any
of the rules of conduct, i.e., to
and is prejudicial to the later-
ests of the game of cricket Marion Samuels' lawyers

two weeks after the alleged offences when the WVest ndles tour
of India had ended and would not have arisen had Samueli not
stayed on to dfdli the television contract.
Neita sad Harrison also noted that the WICB's disci-
plinaryi committee "agreed unreservedly" with Samuels'
defence "that there has not been proved against Mr.
Samuels any element ... or corruption."
"They found "no basis upon which to find that Mr. Samuels
acted dishonestly or in a corrupt manner."
"They accepted that Mr. Samuels Is an honest cricketer,
that he has never betted on cricket matches and that he was

Samuels' lawyers fiuther noted that despite' all this, the panel
still somehow anrived at such a verdict
