By Nathalene DeFreitas
MINISTER of Human Ser-
vices and Social Security, Ms
Priya Manickchand yesterday
expressed deep disappoint-
ment with a news article car-
ried in two other dailies on

the demolishing by the rel-
evant authorities of a derelict
building on down-to~wn
Hadfield Street.
The minister pointed out
that both news items, which ap-
peared in yesterday's edition of
the two newspapers', are

fraught with inaccuracies and
warned that in the future both
dailies would be held account-
able for their indiscretion when
reporting on issues of this na-
"I am disappointed that the
two newspapers can be socare-
'less, and not check with us to
clarify the issues. The articles
of the newspapers are not re-
flective of government's inabil-
ity or unwillingness to help;
they're reflective of the persons
there wanting to stay on the
land and squat in the middle of
Georgetown, which we are not
going to permit. It is going to
breach all the health regulations
and all the other regulations,"
the minister said.
She said that while she un-
derstands the frustration of the
residents, yet at the same time
they are not being entirely hon-
est. She noted that since the
first derelict building on the said
street caved in last Saturday,
staff at her ministry have done

all they can to assist those per-
sons who formerly resided there.
After the building collapsed,
the ministry not only deployed
heavy-duty equipment to re-
move the ensuing debris so that
the former occupants could re-
trieve their belongings, but also
laid on transportation to help
take them and their possessions
wherever they wished to go,
and facilitated the allocation of
house lots to those desirous of
acquiring one.
According to Minister
Manickchand, of the 40-odd
persons rendered homeless
following the collapse of the
building, only three applied
for, and were given, house
lots. The rest, she said, were
not interested because of the
distance of available land
from the city.
"I explained to the persons
there that they need to apply

for house lots and that the min-
istry will assist. Some of them
did not want the. lots at
Tuschen; they wanted house
lots in Georgetown, which is not
possible because there are no
house lots in Georgetown..We
explained to those persons who
applied for house lots that there
is a process to go through first,
but that we will speed it up,"
the minister said, adding that
even if it were possible to pro-
vide both land and house, it
could not be achieved in one
dayi which meant that the im-
mediate concern for. those af-
fected was finding somewhere to
stay in the interim, whether it
was at a relative or at the gov-
ernment-run night shelter.
SShe said that the local
charity, Food for the Poor
Guyana Inc. has already in-
dicated their interest in
building the houses for those

persons who have acquired
their house lots.
Noting that she is not with-
out sympathy but just trying to.
do what's best for everyone,
Minister Manickchand said: "I~
understand how someone can
become emotionally attached to
where they grew up and live,
but when it becomes unhealthy
and unsafe, it becomes the re-
sponsibility of the government
to remove those persons from
there. The Mayor and City
Council does not go around
condemning houses just like
that; if your house has been
condemned by the Council,
then you need to move."
She posited that the me-
dia should be advocating for
persons to remove from build-
ings that have been con-
demned rather than feeding
the public with inaccurate in-

GUYANIA CHROICLE Sunday June 15, 2008


UP to late yesterday, the
search was still on for wanted
man, Rondell 'Fine Man'
Rawlins, and his gang of loyal
foot soldiers some nine days
after he managed to evade a
Joint Services dragnet and
escape deep into the jungle of
the Upper Berbice River.
Sources however speculate
that the men may have grown
tired by now and might well
have fallen sick, after having
trekked through the thick and
desolate malaria-ridden jungle
for days.
Up to press time, there was
no word about the gang's loca-

tion, except that the Joint Ser-
vices team was still hard on their
Meanwhile, the Lethem
woman, who is still in police
custody, reportedly told inves-
tigators that she had lent her
phone to a soldier whom she
has since identified. Her phone
numbers were found in Rawlins'
diary and she was subsequently
arrested for questioning.
It was also reported that
two men, believed to be
Rawlins' cohorts, were spotted
in the jungle ahead of the Joint
Services search party, and were
said to be armed to the teeth.

The ranks found part of a
weapon which was left behind
by the notorious wanted men
who sources said are still hid-
ing out in the jungle in the Up-
per Berbice River.
A well-placed source said
that a list of telephone numbers
found in Rawlins' diary turned
out to be "very revealing" and
is still being processed, but that
the authorities are still tight-
lipped about the other contents
of the diary.
Rawlins has admitted
responsibility for the
Bartica and Lusignan mur-
ders through documented

details in the diary discov-
eYe~d two Fridays ago dur-
ing a surprise visit to
Christmas Falls, some 300
miles up Berbice River,
During the confrontation,
one of Rawlins' accomplices
was shot dead, and has since
been identified as 21-year-old
Otis Fifee, aka 'Mud Up' of
Burton, on the East Coast
A Joint Service press release
issited two Saturday nights ago
said that at about 07:00h the
day before, a patrol in the
Chtristmas Falls area encoun-
teied a gang of about six per-

rifles; four shotguns, one .32 re-
volver; two AK47 magazines;
seven FN rifle magazines, along
with 1,159 rounds of 7.62 x 39
ammunition; 143 rounds of 7.62
x 51 ammunition; 10 rounds of
.38 ammunition; one round of
.32 ammunition; and 36 12-
gauge cartridges.
The Joint Services ranks
also unearthed a diary which
provided incontrovertible evi-
dence of Rawlins' planning and
execution of the killings at
Lusignan and Bartica, a vow to
take vengeance for the death of
his sister, and a number of tele-
phone numbers.
Further, checks done
have confirmed that the
three FN Rifles in the cache
left behind by the gang were
stolen from the Bartica Po-
lice Station during the
armed attack on that com-

of the shotguns belong
Chunilall Babulall, a miner,
whose home at First Avenue,
Bartica was attacked and
robbed during that incident.
(Michel Outridge)

The patrol immediately
came under fire and returned fire
killing one of the gang members
who has been identified.
The other gang members,
including Rawlins; Richard
Ramcharran called 'Uncle
Willie'; another called 'Magic';
and one 'Chung Boy' escaped
down a slope and disappeared
into the jungle, leaving a trail of
blood in their wake, suggesting
that one or more of them were
The gang was housed at a
location with four buildings
in a desolate area in the
jungle and had foodstuff to
last several weeks in a large
kitchen, which also had a gas
stove, a generator and solar
In addition, there were six
portable tents, four hammocks,

phone, a hand-held radio set,
items of clothing, medical sup-
plies, and a Bible, all of which
were abandoned by the gang in
their haste to escape.
Also found were three FN

YESTERDAY saw the official
opening of the first ever Le-
gal Aid Clinic on the
Essequibo Coast by Minister
of Human Services and So-
cial Security, Ms Priya
The clinic is being housed in
the compound of the Region
Two (Pomeroon/Supenaam)
Regional Democratic Council
(RDC) at Anna Regina and will
deal with both criminal and civil
matters. The Managing Attor-
ney-at-law is Mr. Sunil Scarce.
In the feature address Chair-
man of the Board of Directors
of the Guyana Legal Aid Clinic,
Mr. Ashton Chase, said that le-
gal aid is intended for persons
in the community who are too
poor to afford the legal fees for
the services of a lawyer. He said
plans are afoot by the Govern-
mentio IGun i assist per-

- "The principle behind this
launching of the clinic," he said,
"is that all persons should be
treated as being equal before the
law, and should be able to get
representation to make us all
equal before the law."
Urging those who could af-
ford lawyer not to take advan-
tage of the situation, Mr. Chase
said: "I appeal to the people of
Essequibo to give cooperation
and full support and ensure that -
the objectives of the clinic are
*carried out."
The clinic is totally depen-
dent on local funding and in
2007, the government increased
its subvention to the Guyana
Legal Aid Clinic by $32M so
that legal aid services could be
provided countrywide before
the end of 2008.
In addition to Georgetown

able for the first time to resi-
dents of Regions Three, Five,
Six, Seven, and Ten. Minister
Manickchand announced that
before the end of August, the
other clinics will have been
launched. She noted that the
government is giving to "the
people of Guyana ways in
which they can enforce their
rights to improve their liveli-
hood. She further stated: "The
Government of Guyana has
made no secret of the fact that
it is committed to providing
quality services to all the
people of Guyana. We have
done more than talk; we have

shown persons that Guyana...
has improved. It is up to you
the people% ~f Guyana to access
the services that the Govern-
ment is currently providing."
Regional Chairman, Mr.
Ali Baksh pointed out that
the. establishment of a legal
aid clinic in the Essequibo
Region is vital in many ways,
while Ms Juliet Coonjah,
Vice Chairperson for the Re-
gional Women's Affairs Com-
mittee observed that before
the establishment of such an
entity in the region there was

"Is hanging only for politi-
cians?" asked Sharif, referring to former Prime Minister Zulfikar
Ali Bhutto, hanged by a military dictator in 1979.
"Theye blood-sucking dictators must be held accountable."
The demonstration, a few hundred metres from the presidency
and parliament buildings, marked the climax of an almost week-
long rolling protest across the country led by lawyers, though by
the end they were easily outnumbered by Sharif party activists.

dent George W. Bush and

that a nuclear-armed Iran
would pose a threat to peace,
as they sought to end tension
over Iraq and forge a common

Caribbean Net News un-
derstands that the new exami-
nation (CAPE) will begin on
Monday, June 16 and that CXC
has implemented a new set of
security measures for the safe-
keeping and handling of exami-
nation papers.
Similar security arrange-
ments have also been extended
to fifteen other international ex-
aminations for which the
Trinidad and Tobago education
ministry has responsibility. We
were also told that all security
arrangements will be subject to
periodic review.
All persons have been
charged under Sections 10l, 11
and 13 of the Caribbean Ex-
aminations CouncilAct of 1990.
If found guilty they could face
no less than one year in prison
and or fines no less than
'IT$5,000 according to theAct.

IN A NUMBER of Caribbean Community States, most
notably Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and S Lucia, there have
been, and continue to be, problems over appointments to the
high command of their police service, and specifically that of
the Commissioners
Problems have been aggravated when non-CARICOM
nationals have been sought to fill either the number one or
onum tho poo t hn tew fae oprnbh di qet amnim 9ran s
spiralling rates of murder and criminality In general, as well
as having to contend with the disturbing reports of rogue cops'
involvement in various criminal acts.
Currently, controversy rages in St Lucia over operations of
the country's Police Force, which remains under the control
of a former British police officer, John Broughton. He was ap-
'pointed to act following the December 2006 general election
that resulted in a change in govemment and the subsequent
hasty move to retire the Commissioner and Deputy Commis-
sioner both St Lucian nationals. In addition to Broughton,
there are some five other ex-British cops In the local Force.
In Jamaica, where there is, as in Trinidad and Tobago,
runaway murder rates, gang violence and armed robbenes,
retired Rear Admiral of the Jamaica Defence Force, Hardley
Lewin was recruited to head the Jamaica Constabulary Force
in December last year following the sudden resignation of
Commissioner Lucius Thomas, after some 18 months on
the job, due to reported tension with the new Jamaica Labour
Party govemment.
But Lewin himself shockingly tendered his own resigna-
tion earlier this month, only to withdraw it within 48 hours, fol-
lowing assurances about misrepresentations of a critical
comment by Prime Minister Bruce Golding in relation to the
Commissioner's strained relationship with ranks of the Con-
Across in Trinidad and Tobago, after repeated efforts, since
last year, to find a successor to retiring Police Commissioner
Trevor Paul, there came the unexpected development just a
few days ago of the Police Service Commission's recom-
mended choice, Senior Supenntendent Stephen Williams,
being opposed by both Pnime Minister Patrck Manning's
administration and the main opposition, United National Con-
gress-Alliance (UNC-A) of Basdeo Panday.
While the UNC-A said they have nothing personal against
Williams but insist on the nght to engage In 'further due dil-
gence work," the Manning administration is known to have,
all along, been in favour, first, of a retired Amencan cop, Louis
Vega, former New York Department Police Captain; and sec-
ondly, Deputy Police Commissioner James Philbert, a national
of the Trinlldad and Tobago Police Force.
Amid media reports of hostility to having a foreigner to head
the local force, Vega did what former New York police chief
Bemard Kerik did back In April 2007 withdraw his interest
in being the new Police Commissioner of Trinidad and To-

At present, in Trinidad and Tobago, the clamour from vari-
ous stakeholders, including parliamentary opposition, private
sector and civic society organizations, for the expeditious ap-
pointment of a new Police Commissioner has now been ex-
panded to strident calls for the replacement of National Secu-
rity Minister, Senator Martin Joseph, whose unpopularity grows
amid skyrocketing. murders, kidnapping, vicious cases of
rape and armed robberies,

ON a recent visit (actualljr ny
first); to the Fort Wellington
Hospital in Region 5, I am
disheartened at the way cihi-
zens who go there to access
medical attention or e being
treated at this Institutiony ,
On Friday June 7, 2008, I
took my child to this Hospital,
where he was examined by the
doctor attached there and Il~uas
given the prescriptions and pro-
ceeded to uplift the mediqqtgon
from the Hospital's pharmacy/
dispensary. I awaited my turn
then handed the prescriptions to
a female attendahit' (Were; Who
proceeded to dispense the medi-
cations, but instead of using the
dispenser unit she used her
ungloved hands, I aMltd he~lrhy
she's not using the dispenser
and she said to me "you want
the drugs", I replied that:iaid,
and was given just two of ~the
prescribed medication on my
prescriptions, then she asked
for- a bottle to tipliffitihe
amoxicialn suspension, I did not
have a bottle (I had no idea that
the hospital had a p~olic ~for
patients to have their personal
bottles to uplift medicine (as this
was my first visit). I was ad-
vised that across the roadcfrom
the ho tal the .little corner

bottles at $4O a pic the

price but how can I purchase a
bottle from somewhere I am un-
certain of as to the source of the
bottle, the hygiene etc?
I refused to. piirchake a
bottle and so was not given the
suspension, which in the~first
place was supposed Ip btugiven
in its original 60ml bottle in
the powder form and recon-
stituted, and as I stood there I

saw another patient being given
this bottle in the original form, I
voiced my observation and that
female attendant was annoyed
because I stood up for my rights.
I asked her name for she was
not wearing any form of identi-
fication and I indicated to her I
was going to complain about her
attitude; she told me I could
complain to whoever I like. This
clearly indicates insubordination
and ineffective administration.
The other point is even
though I had read my prescrip-
tions and knew what medication
I was entitled to uplift, I was not
given all that were prescribed. I
will now state here that I was
prescribed Oral Rehydration
Salts (ORS), Motrim, Septrim,
Flagyl and the Amoxcillin sus-
pension but I only received the
Septrim and Flagyl, granted
I didn't have a bottle for the sus-
pension, why was I not given the
other medication?
Could the ministers respon-
sible for Health please take note
because I am one of the fortu-
nate citizens who consider my-
self fairly literate, empowered
and outspoken whenever my
rights as a citizen of this coun-
try are being trampledt30on,kbut
thrd-c aos ctriz ns what a ou

are illiterate, differently-abled
and senior citizens.
I would also like to suggest
that all Medical/Health facilities
in this country make it manda-
tory for their employees inclusive
tification badges with their names
and designation clearly visible.

IT has been nearly six
months since pension was in-
creased to G$72,000 per year
and Public Assistance was also
While I am sure that more
pensioners are better off than
they were one year ago there
may be a need to further add
to their well-being by giving
them a one-off boost of
G$25,000 to G$50,000 each so
that they can afford the rising
cost of living. This will cost the
Government G$1.75B but it
would be money well spent as
it does not contribute to infla-
The Grow More Cam-
paign may help workers but
would not necessarily be taken
on by pensioners due to the
hard work of farming. So, pen-
sioners need to rely on
the generosity of the govern-
ment of the day unless they are
prepared to work part-time to
supplement their pension,
I would also suggest that
the government look at raising
the NIS contributions from the
eren r5.2 toc Tand re-
the current 33.33% to 30%.

This will provide the govern-
ment with monies that it can
spendlinvest in businesses to
generate growth of pensions.
At the same time, I would
like to urge pensioners to con-
sider banding together (about
20) and forming a business, or
buying a business (like shops)
as they already have life expe-
rience (which ixicludes finance
management in the form of
household incomelexpendi-
tures). I am sure that the gov-
ernment can make micro-busi-
ness finance available at 7% in-
terest to pensioners that band
together to form businesses.
I do not suggest that pen-
sioners take on the hard work
of farming but they can hire un-
employed people to do such
work even if it is just on a tem-
por each pensioner can aim
to build a local farm that gives
them a profit of G$50,000 per
year then this extra monies,
when added to their pension,
will give them a total of
G$122,000 per year which
would be a big boost to their

R~ECENT reports of the sur-
prise attempt to capture the
notorious Rondell Rawlins'
gang indicate that almost all
of the weapons recovered
were stolen from the Bartica
massacre. From all reports
the gang fled into the jungle
without their weapons hav-
ing abandoned them in the
camp. Where, then, are the
weapons which were used by
this gang in the execution of
the residents of Bartica?
The evidence leads us to
believe that the weapons used
in the massacres at Lusignan
and Bartica do not really belong
to the bandits and are not re-
ally in their possession all of the
time. This would certainly ex-
plain why the police have con-
sistently failed to find bandits
with weapons in their nismer-
ous road blocks. The police can
actually stop the bandits and
fail to identify them in the ab-
sence of the weapons which
they were looking for. This
then, indicates that the weap-
ons are moved separately from
the bandits and are actually
picked up by the gangs before
the commission of anattack.

used by more than one gang or
bandits from time to t me. hS
Sawh for example may have

been used by one bandit and
the same weapons may have
been used by another bandit to
kill someone in the Lusignan or
Bartica massacre.
This means that there is a
higher level of organisation than
is apparent on the surface as
some one or some organization
is in the business of renting or
leasing arms and ammunition to
bandits at large. It would be in-
teresting to find out who the
proprietors of this business en-
terprise are. Should the police
stumble on the cache of weap-
ons or find them as they are be-
ing moved from one location to
another most likely over back
dams ortrails and catch the per-
sons responsible for the move-
ment of these weapons the task
of ending this criminal enter-
prise would become easier to
Maybe someone in
authority can direct
some resources to track-
ing the possible location
of these weapon caches.

happy to see the back of
this crime spree and

Greene as Commissioner of the GPF, the post in which
he has been acting since July 2006
Perhaps, now that the outstanding appointment of a

ing as a priority the confirmation of Green as Police Com-

It would be quite Interesting to learn of the PNCR
leader's response to Greene's confirmation. He was
known Io be quite anxious to support the appointment of
Greene's predecessor, Felix Austin, whose 2006 retirement
had followed controversies over illegally taped conversa-

IT IS not clear at this stage
how many Caribbean Com-
munity Heads of Government
will be travelling to New York
for the "Second Conference
on the Caribbean" starting
on Thursday (June 19) to co-
hacide with this year's "Car-
ibbean American Heritage
Nor is it known, as arrange-
ments are bemng finalised for the
two-day event, precisely what
progress has been achieved in
fulfillment of pledges/commit-
ments made at last year's inau-
gural 'Conference on the Carib-
bean' when a full-house of
CARICOM leaders showed up
mn Washington for the June 20
summit with President George

W Bush. ?
A thre~e-page "Joint State-
ment" released from the meet-
ing between the US President
and the Caribbean leaders,
placed an emphasis on issues
known to have a priority for the
Bush administration--such as
cooperation against "threats of
terrorism and crime" and "the
benefits of democracy".
Whatever policy differences
may exist between the USA and
the Caribbean--or, more spe-
cifically CARICOM (over
Cuba for instance)--the Bush
administration can hardly be utl-
aware of the reality that our
post-independence region is dis-
tinguished by its recognized
commitment to democratic val-

ues and willingness to cooper-
ate against the-forces of evil
identified with terrorism and
crime. .
In contrast, various Wash-
ington administrations-Demo-
crats and Republicans--have
exposed their inconsistencies
when it comes to delivering on
commitments, including dealing
with terrorists funded by) Arneri-
can intelligence, who have
caused much grief to our region.
The name of the 'Cuban
emigre Luis Posada, -impli-
cated in the Cubana bombing
tragedy that killed .all 75
people on board off Barbados
in 1976, comes. readily to
mind. Strangely, having ear-
lier commendably capled on

U7S authorities to bring
Posada to justice, no mention
was made in the released
jointt statement" about this
terrorist still being sheltered
in the USA.
Now, for this week's New
York Conference, it would be
surprising if either the Prime
Ministers of Jamaica (Bruce
Golding) or Trinidad and Tobago
(Patrick Manning), or Guyana's
President Bharrat Jagdeo will
show up.
Having previously failed to
respond to an invitation from
President Bush earlier in the year
to join three other CARICOM
Prime Ministers (Barbados'
David Thompson; The Bahamas'
Hubert Ingraham and Belize's
Dean Barrow) for a White House
meeting, it is doubtful that
Golding may make the journey,
faced as he is with current domes-
ti Aensdeoth Manning and
Jagdeo, who last week repre-
sented CARICOM at the mini
Special Commonwealth Summit
in London, are also likely to ex-
cuse themselves, unless either
Inudtsou essfullytbe prevailed
One of the propos'ed-politi-
cal initiatives for this week's
conference is to have separate
bilateral meetings with the
Democratic and Republican
2008 presidential candidates,
Barack Obama and John
McCain, respectively, to assess
their positions on US-Caribbean
relations. No confirmation could
have been obtained at the time
of writing if this effort will be
realized, it being dependent on
the campaign agendas of both
However, as it was for last

year's "Washington Conference
on the Caribbean" so it will be
for this week's "New York
Conference on the Caribbean"-
a central focus on bolstering
trade and investment for our
region's social and economic ad-
vancement, coupled with spe-
cial emphasis on deepening en-
counters with the 'Caribbean
diaspora" in the USA.
Compared with last year's
high profile event, this week's
Conference seems heading for a
more modest programme of en-
gagements with, among
others, some key US Congress-
men--including the veteran
Charles Rangel Iod "friend of
the Caribbean". Special attention
is to be given this time to dis-
cussing with representatives of
the diaspora how to expand co-
operation between educational
institutions in CARICOM and
those of North America.

Strengthening the dialogue
with Community nationals of
the diaspora located across the
USA, especially in major centres
lik NewdYork and Was igton,

mutual benefits, particularly, it
is felt, if pursued within the
context of clearly defined poli-
cies and programmes. This may
require having some ~basic data
on the size, talents and re-
sources of the disapora commu-
Question is, for all the "ole
talk" by CARICOM govern-
ment leaders and Community
officials about the importance of
the Caribbean diaspora--not
just in America but also Canada
and the United Kingdom--to
tap their skills and potential as

partners in the region's sus-
tained development, there is an
absence of evidence that any
concrete initiative has been un-
dertaken to establish what is
recognized to be a valuable
tool--skills data bank.
The argument by advo-
cates of a skills data
bank to include valuable hu-l
man resource located amond
nationals of the Caribbear
diasporas in NorthAmrc
and the UK is that it is essen
tial to better mobilisemu
needed skills in, forexml
the health and education sec
tors in the member states o
our 15-member Community.

Naipaul might have appropriately
interpreted the economic and so-
cial prospects of the T&T society.
Some of his nostalgic feelings
are captured, thus: "...I feel nos-
talgic for home. Do you know
what I long for? I long for the
nights that will fall blackly, sud-
denly, without warning. I long for L
a violent shower of rain at night. I
long to hear the tinny tattoo of
heavy raindrops on a roof, or the
drops of rain on the broad leaves
of that wonderful plant, the wild **
tannia. But in short, I long for
home, or perhaps, the homely atmosphere. And I miss my bicycle
rides, and the sea, and the pit at Rialto, and the sort of cigarettes I
used to smoke, to everyone's scandal..."
The book Between Father And Son does secure the linkages
between two worlds apart against a background of dislocation and
isolation, apart not only in terms of physical distance, but certainly,
also, in relation to Indo-Caribbean cultural systems and institutions.
Perhaps, the genesis of this book can be discerned through
a letter from V.S. Naipaul's father (Seepersad Naipaul).
Seepersad Naipaul wrote: "...Your letters are charming in their
spontaneity. If you could write me letters about things and
people especially people at Oxford, I could compile them in
a book: Letters Between A Father And Son, or My Oxford Let-
ters. What think you? Just here Kamla seems useless. You
can do it, I'm sure. If you can bring the same quality of spon-
taneity in whatever you write, everything you write will have
a sparkle. I believe this free flow in one's written thought is
due largely to absence of anxiety..."
Constantly in letters from both father and son, we see an end-
less outpouring of words of wisdom, reassuring each other, on the
process of becoming a writer. The caring advice of Seepersad Naipaul
to his son in pursuit of a career in writing~jpunctuates the entire
book, showing the father's unbroken umbilical link with his son.
The father writes to his son: "...Now I know that if I am
writing about Rapooche, I' am for the mospent Rapooche him-
self. I must therefore know Rapooche, be Rapooche. In a sense,
I am wholly myself; and yet I am wholly the character I am
trying to portray...In a moment, one can make oneself what-
ever one wants oneself to be...Do you recollect what Cecil
Hunte has said on the importance of note-taking of jotting
down your impressions of people and things (and I'd add of
capturing a mood)? It would be a God-send to you if you adopted
this as a habit. You will find these jottings most useful some
time, somewhere. You will have your characters ready to hand
...Write on WI themes; not only fiction, but go in for factual
writing also. These must be something better than ordinary

Review of Between

Fa 0 8 an O SF hdt

THE Nobel Prize for Literature 2001 was awarded to Sir
Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul, "for having united perceptive
narrative and incorruptible scrutiny in works that compel us
to see the presence of suppressed histories". The Nobel cita-
tion pulled out his book '"The Enigma of Arrival" (1987) for
special acclaim, referring to it as "an unrelenting image of
the placid collapse of the old colonial ruling culture and the
decline of European neighborhoodss.
But the Nobel Prize for Literature had eluded V.S. Naipaul for
several years. Internationally acclaimed as a literary force in this
century, the following attest to the sweep of his works:
"A Tolstoyan spirit...The so-called Third World has produced
no more brilliant literary artist."......John "for having united per-
ceptive narrative and incorruptible scrutiny in works that compel
us to see the presence of suppressed histories". Updike, The New
"He is our Conrad."......John Leonard, New York Times
"The best novelist now writing in England."......Karl Miller,
New York Review of Books
"The sweep of Naipaul's imagination, the brilliant fictional
frame that expresses it, are in my view without equal
today."......Elizabeth Hardwick, New York Times Book Review
"Naipaul's writing is clean and beautiful, and he has a great eye
for nuance."-The Atlantic Monthly
One of the few contemporary writers of whom we can speak
in terms of greatness."......Mel Gussow, Newsday
The book 'Between Father And Son: Family Letters', V.S.
Naipaul, edited by Gillon A~itken on V.S. Naipaul, portrays an inci-
sive dedication of father to son and son to father, through their let-
The letters embrace just over three years, beginning from V.S.
Naipaul's trip to University College, Oxford, on a Trinidad & To-
bago (T&T) Government scholarship in 1950, culminating at the
point at which he completed his studies.
This book must be penetratingly nostalgic for foreign students
studying abroad, particularly in England, at a time when migrant
infrastructures were not yet as established as they are today. The
book will connect them to their early years in England.
Some problematic, but quite typical scenarios for them

then, might have included: reluctance, both subtle and overt,
of fellow homelanders to receive them as lodgers during short
holiday periods when little money might have been available;
the yearning to return home periodically during severe bouts
of homesickness; and the daily impact of a dramatic physical,
albeit, superficial separation from loving and caring extended
families in the home country.
Also, some of these foreign students, at that time, might have
found an affinity with a particular element of Naipaul's experience,
when his father amicably mandated him to write every week, and/
or to reply to each letter immediately.
Some foreign students' parents, possibly fathers, might have
insisted on weekly letters, and these fathers possibly even ensured
that that task was effected through the tone of their letters. In any
case, many foreign students must have dutifully complied,
In Naipaul's Oxford years, on the one hand, we see reminiscent
glimpses of a longing for his family and the natural beauty of his
homeland, and on the other, we see Naip~aul's negativism attributed
to Trinidad and Tobago in terms of it not being big enough to ac-
commodate his ambitions and provide opportunities.
Naipaul argued that if he settled in 'Ikinidad and Tobago,
he would be constrained too much by intellectual starvation.
Naipaul added that education should produce a mind that can
adjust to the humanities, and that people who are educated
should be able to transform the social graces into 'mental'
Naipaul, probably, felt that this was not the case with educa-
tion outcomes in Trinidad and Tobago. Today, many students ac-
quire degrees without a tinge of social consciousness. Naipual may
say, under such circumstance, that education through a degree, has
not produced an educated mind.
His definition of an intellectual environment, either, was that it
was -totally inadequate, or did riot yet evolve in Trinidad and To
bago. Naipaul's father, at one time, even referred to Trinidad and
Tobago as a 'hole'. The young Naipaul, probably, felt that his coun-
try of birth could not measure up to his career capacity as a writer.
Subsequent heavy migrations to North America and England
from the 1950s might have affirmed the problems of eking out a
living in some of these Caribbean countries:In that sense, the young

course. Brown's unchallengC800S
succession to Blair as prime
minister is already seen as
Labour's great mistake, and it is
almost universally assumed that
the Conservatives will win the
next election in less thanl two
years' time. So Brown cast
around for some symbolic ges-
ture that would wrong-foot the
Tories, and came up with 42
days: paint himself as tough on

vatives to choose between de-

Through actual advisement on writing, his father, as a parent, disseminated an enormous amount of
family values akin to the Caribbean culture which served to sustain the young Naipaul's linkage with
his family in T&T.
The young Naipaul reciprocated after his father's sudden death with "...Pa would like to hear this'.
He didn't know, for instance, that my translations in the examination were the best in the year. In a
way I had always looked upon my life as a continuation of his a continuation which, I hoped, would
also be a fulfillment. It still is;..."
Naipaul's mother in a letter to him, advocates endogamy and ethnic cleavage in marriage.,
thus: "...Well, this is one thing I am begging you not to do: don't marry a white girl, lilease
don't. Mamie told me that the girls are just crazy over the boys that go to England to study,
they feel -that they are very~ rich, and when you marry them your life is done with, I don't say
you will do it. Your aim should be your study, nothing else. I suppose there are plenty of In-
dian girls in England studying. If you marry one of them only when you are through with your
education, I shall be very pleased..."
But endogamy and traces of ethnic cleavage, as expressed by Naipaul's mother, may not be due to
ethnocentrism, but to her singular method of sustaining East Indian culture. On the other side, ihen
Naipaul was courting his wife-to-be Patricia Ann Hale -, a white girl, her father was totally opposed
to his daughter's relationship with V.S. Naipaul.
Naipaul's father, however, definitively believes that interracial marriages fail not because of the
temperaments of the two parties concerned, but because of the attitude displayed to them by friends
on both sides.
Seepersad Naipaul's dedication as a writer saw the writer's life as a life of the mind. Achieving th~is
would mean a person is living a noble life, according to the elder Naipaul. His son's career resonates
with this belief.
The letters showl the father constantly experiencing a life of broken ambitions as a writer
and his son on the portgd of a distinguished literary career. These two different experiences
provided the raw materials for V.S. Naipaul's classic work, A House For Mr. Biswas. The letters
really capture absorption with several concerns, two of which were: concern for his pa, ma, and
his siblings, especially Kamla, his eldest sister; and to become a literary titan.

Two hundred and seventy
people convicted of no crime
languish in Guantanamo,
and the British parliament
has just voted to extend de-
tention without trial to forty-
two days. In both the United
States and Britain, govern-
ments that attack civil lib r-

still rule.
But in the past week jhe
tide has turned in both coun-
In the United States, the S-
preme Court has ruled forlye
third time in four years that ~he
people detained in Guantanamo
can challenge their imprison-
ment in US civilian courts. When
the Court made the same ruling
in 2004 and 2006, an obedient
Congress passed legislation
overruling it, but that will not
happen this time.
The Supreme Court judges
have ruled once again that the
ancient rule of habeas corpus,
the right of every prisoner to be
brought before a court where
the state must give a legal jusi-
fication for his detention, can-
not be thrust aside on the pre-
text that the suspect is afo
eigner, or a terrorist, or an "il-
gal combatant." The government
still has to convince a judge that
it has the evidence to justify the
charge, and then bring the ac-
cused to trial.
With Democratic majorities
almost certain in both houses of
Congress after the November
elections, and both presidential
candidates committed to sh~ut-

ting Guantanamo, this time the
Supreme Court's ruling will
stick. As Justice Anthony
Kennedy put it, "The laws and
constitution are designed to sur-
vive, and remain in force, in ex-
traordinary times. Liberty and
security can be reconciled; and
in our system they are recon-
ciled within the framework of
the law."
The rule of law is re-
turning in the United States
after years of abuse. In Brit-
ain, it is still under attack,
but the fight back has started
in earnest. After Prime Min-
ister Gordon Brown forced
through the 42-day detention
law on Wednesday despite
the resistance of both major
opposition parties and 36
rebels from his own Labour
Party, something unpree-
edented happened.
David Davis, the Conserva-
tive MP who serves as shadow
home secretary (the opposition
spokesman on domestic af-
fairs), resigned his seat the fol-
lowing day. He declared that he
would run for re-election on a
platform of opposition to the
"monstrosity" of 42-day deten-
tion and to the "government's
slow strangulation of fundamen-
tal British freedoms."
The Great British Public, it
must be admitted, is not very
interested in fundamental Brit-
ish freedoms. As Gordon
Brown pointed out in defence of
his law, a majority of the pub-
lic supports 42-day detention.
Indeed, a majority of the
British public, given the right
lead by the gutter firess, would

But democratic countries
have laws and constitutions
precisely to fend off this kind
of ignorant populism. David
Davis is acting in defence of ha-
beas corpus, and when the vot-
ers of his constituency are
forced to confront the issue of
human rights squarely they will
probably vindicate him.

IN THE absence of
GUYEXPO this year, the
organizers of the Berbice Ex-
position, the Central
Corentyne Chamber of Com-
merce (CCCC), plan to make
the event, now in its fourth
year, the biggest and best ever
to date.
GUYEXPO, usually held in
the city at the Sophia Exhibition
Site, will not be held this year
due to the extensive planning
for, and the large amounts of re-

Explaining the situation
during the launching last
Wednesday of Berbice Expo
2008, Minister of Tourism,
Industry and Commerce Mr.
Manniram Prashad said: "In-
stead of GUYEXPO, we will
be concentrating on
CARIFESTA X for 10 days
and the National Exhibition
Centre in Sophia will be one
of the key venues. And all our
craft producers that would
normally be involved in
GUYEXPO will throw their
full weight into
What ~this means for
Berbice, he went on to say, "is
that we have to gear ourselves
for the economic take-off ... the
completion of the [Berbice]
tbrildope users in a new tehaw cf
Berbicans and all Guyanese
should seize."
The exposition will run
from July 25-28, and is now
scheduled to be held every year
in the last week of July. Accord-
ing to the minister, this pre-ar-

ranged scheduling of the event
will be of great help to exhibi-
tors, investors and patrons alike
since it will enable all parties to
include it in their plans for the
year ahead.
The theme this year is 'Pio-
neering the Agri Revolution',
which Minister Prashad noted is
quite fitting, in that it is in keep-
ing with the Ministry of
Agriculture's 'Grow More'

region with the opening of the
Berbice Bridge, Minister
Prashad said: '"The Bridge com-
ing onitesim this year can only
mean well for the economic de-
velopment of Berbice and the
country as a whole."
Minister Prashad noted that
the region's farmers will greatly
benefit as a result of the oppor-
tunities that it will open up,
since they will be able to better
access local markets. Spoilage

Meanwhile, President of the

for the exposition has already
been taken up, and that interna-
tional participants from Brazil,
Venezuela and India will take
part in the event.

is a success story, and the CCCC
must be congratulated for taking
on this massive project, Minis-
ter Prashad said. He noted that
they are well organised and have
done an excellent job of manag-
ing their affairs. They have
brought a new kind of activity
into the county that Berbicans
can be proud of, he said.
The Ministry has been as-
sisting and providing support to
the Chamber of Commerce
from the inception, and this will
continue in an advisory manner.
"I know [that] come next
year, the Berbice Expo will
probably give GUYEXPO a run
for its money; competition is
good; this is what competition
is all about; it brings out the
best, and we welcome that and

tee," he said.

ing Artificial Insemination in-
dustry (Sperm Banks)?
I shudder to think of what
kind of a world we are becom-
ing, when the patriarchal influ-
ence and stability provided by
solid loving fathers in a home is
removed for the sake of liberal
feminist independence.
"Fatherlessness is the most
harmful demographic trend of
this generation," warns social
historian, David Blankenhorn.
"It is the leading cause of declin-
ing child well-being in this soci-
ety. It is also the engine driving
our most urgent social prob-
lems; from crime to adolescent
pregnancy to child sex abuse to
domestic violence against
women" (Fatherless America:
Confronting Our Most Urgent
Social Problem, 1995, p. 1).
How important is the role
of the father in child rearing?
New studies have shown that
dads, who normally are not
given as much credit as moms
in child rearing, actually play a
vital role in the upbringing of
children and their future suc-
cess. Amazingly, this research
reinforces the same principles
written in the Bible thousands
of years ago! Let's look at some
of the evidence.

A few days ago, sitting in a
doctor's office, awaiting my
appointment, I was amused
by a statement made by an-
other gentleman awaiting his
turn, but also frighteningly
reminded of the plight of
men in our society.
"Well imagine is father's
day weekend, and nothing aint
happening. No balloons, no big
set a shopping, is like it aint no
big deal. If was mothers day,
man you would see de place,
every body busy".
As I pondered on this
gentleman's musings, Ibegan to
reflect on my own observations
as a Christian leader and an as-
piring social scientist. The evi-
dent diminishing of the male
species, more specifically the fa-
thers in our modern society,
seem to be going un-noticed by
a great many of us, and that is
very worrisome to me .
Are fathers becoming obso-
lete ih~ a modern society? Is the
role of a father no longer neces-
sary in the functioning of a nor-
mal healthy family?
Researchers at the Univer-
sity of Newcastle upon Tyne in
Great Britain say they are on
the verge of creating sperm cells
from bone marrow. This would

allow women to conceive chil-
dren completely without men.
In essence, this technologi-
cal development would render
men obsolete and completely
unnecessary in the process of

Most of the children, who
performed well in the country's
last grade six examinations, come
from homes where the father is
present and involved.
S"Children's social, physical,
and intellectual development
lienefit greatly from the involve-
(beat of fathers" observes Yale
chiild psychiatrist Kyle Pruett
(q~uotedl by Judsen Culbreth,
'!What Dads Are Made Of,"
Reader's Digest, June 2005, p.
12A). The intellectual gains are
noticeable from the first year of
life and continue on past high
"By eight weeks," Dr.
Pruett explains, "infants can an-
ticipate differences in maternal
and paternal handling styles ...

When infants were approached
by their mother, they slowed
and regulated their heart and
respiratory rates, relaxed their
shoulders, and lowered their
eyelids (Ahh ... Mom). When
the father approached, the
infant's heart and respiratory
rates quickened, shoulders
hunched up, and eyes widened
and brightened (Dad's here ...
party time!)" (Father need:
Why Father Care Is as Essen-
tial as Mother Care for Your
Child, 2000, p. 25).
A father's playfulness helps
his children develop motor
skills, hand-eye coordination,
balance and confidence.
So th~e evidence is there. To
make light of the role and the sig-
nificance of Fathers in any so-

city is catastrophic. Admit-
tedly, many fathers are delin-
quent, hence enforcing the nega-
tive stereotyping of fathers.
But, in honor of all the Fathers
I know, who have stayed
around and have been involved
and are committed to their fami-
lies, I want to insist, that Fa-
thers are of no less importance
or significance than our mothers.
So hats off to fathers who are
fathering their children. That is, fa-
thers who love, care for are in-
volved in the affairs of their chil-

kS("?VAT Policy Corner

VAT Policy -PJeas & Bean

Th GoL anaI:11 RevenIue A\uthority continues to clarify various issues regarding the application ofValue- Added
Ta1 x ( V'AT ) t o spre ific go ods and services. Therefore, this policy seeks to addresses VAT and Peas and beans.
Sc~he~dule 1 ofr the: \:AT Act lists goods and services which are zero-rated for VAT purposes. Accordingly,
Paragraph 2:
(q) I ix) zr'o-l.ates~ supply of dried splitpeas;
(pp) zero-rates, a supply of dried black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas. Paragraph 2(A) (s) (vi), (vui) and
(viii), zero-rates a supply of dried chickpeas, peas; dried kidney beans, and dried pigeon peas.
Notwithstanding the above, if the products listed above are packagedl int a ctan, VA Tat the standard rate nf'
sixteen percent will apply.

Therefore, consumers will not, pay -VAT at the standard i-ate of sixteen percent when purchasing driedi split
pea, ried black-eved peas, dried chick peas, dried kidntey beans andi dried Qpigon peas, since businesses
are required to charge VAT at a rate of0O% on these proclucis.
Furthermore, other peas and beans such as butter beank;, red beans or red peas etc. will continue to attract VAT
at the standard rate of sixteen percent whether or not these are canned.

Since zero-rating is a positive tax treatment, registered businesses which sell zero-rated supplies are entitled
to inp~ut tax credit paid on purchases related to the zero-rated supply.

As such, registered businesses may file for a full refund of inpuit tax credits on a monthly basis if the rero-urated
items account for at least fifnty percent ofthe amrountt ofthe taxable supplies.

CS: WHAT would you say is
the single biggest quarrel you
have with the subject of male
parenting in Guyana today?
FC: Dead-beat dads. Good-
for-nothing dads. The absence of
fathers from homes. There are
too many single-parent families

in Guyana. The absence of fa-
thers from their homes puts the
children at a severe disadvantage.
The boys have no role model,
and the girls can get no finn idea
as to the kind of male they
should develop a relationship
with. Sooner or later, many boys
in single-parent homes get in-
volved in deviant behaviour. But
we were not like this all the
time. Time was when a mother

would tell her son: 'Boy, you
mean not to behave? yourself;
wait till yuh father come home!'
The father was seen as the dis-
ciplinarian in the home; the boy
could not stay out too late at
night because the father would
say: 'There is outs! one Anan in
this house, and if you can't hear,
'you will
feel!' If fathers remain in
their homes and help their wives

and reputed wives in bringing up
their children, there would be
less instability; less crime in this
CS: What about those
children who pressure their
parents for material things
they can ill afford, and how do
you think fathers should re-
.act to this type of behaviour?

FC: Yes.! This problem does
exist in some homes. We read
some years ago about the teen-
ager who committed suicide be-
cause her parents could not af-
ford to buy a brand name track
boots for her. Many children put
this kind of pressure on their
parents because of what is hap-
pening wit their peers; what
~they see on television and so on.
Some fathers react.to this kind
of pressure by running away. As
fathers, we have got to stand up

and show we are made of sterner
stuff; we need to sit down with
the child and explain that the
purchase of what they need is
not possible at the particular
point in time, and get them to
understand this. Too many par-
ents do not talk with their chil-
dren; they are too liusy or too
'tired, and sooner or later, the
child begins to listen to someone
else and by the time the parents
realise this, it is too late to re-

me smile
our child.

learnt my lesson and won't fall into the same trap again. His
response has always been that it hasn't rocked his boat, as I
have stayed with him. I can't understand why I am encourag-
ing relations with other men when essentially I am happy!
All the literature on affairs is written about men cheating on
women. Am I the only one?

No, you're not the only wife having an affair. The figures sug-
gest that while 60-70% of men cheat, 40-50% of women do,
and rising!
But women usually use their affairs to mark the end of a former
relationship. The affair is seen as not being a betrayal, but a way
out of the original partnership. Men, on the other hand, are much
more able to compartmentalise their lives and their sexuality so
they can carry on loving and lusting in tandem for ages without
needing to end one relationship and move on to another.
I wonder whether this is what you're doing? Perhaps
you're approaching your flings in a masculine way? If so, my
only warning is this: Take care. Even though your husband
says everything's OK, one day he'll suddenly decide he's had
enough, and you won't be able to get him back.

Dear Sherry
I think my man is too secretive. The other day I asked him if
he. is attracted to any of his women friends at work and he got
annoyed. I don't see why he can't answer I do. I have no
problem in telling him that I find somebody attractive.

cate a song to her on the radio or Facebook. Get it? She will find
you if she wants to. And even if you can talk your way back into
her arms, it's only a temporary reprieve. She already knows you
want her back, and she doesn't care. Take that as a sign.
Avoid her friends and any places she goes to, and don't
venture into her territory. You won't be welcome. Find new
places to hang out for the first few months and make new
friends, if necessary. If any of your friends insist on main-
taining contact with her, you may have to shut them out, too -
at least temporarily. After some time has passed, you should
go back to living normally, and that means hanging out at these
places and reconnecting with your mutual friends. Don't try
to get your stuff back. Unless it's a diamond ring or some-
thing that's one-of-a-kind; you're better off not contacting her
to get it back. DVDs, clothes, your extra toothbrush... just let
'em go. They're only possessions. Is it really worth the pain
of being in her presence just to reclaim a pair of boxer shorts?
Don't exchange your dignity for menial belongings.

I have been married seven
years. I have had three 'enio-
tional' and slightly physical
affairs. I tell my husband .-
about them when they are .

Dear Sherry
My girlfriend of two years ended our relationship, and I feel
that my future is in shambles. She is always doing this going
back and forth, but this time she says she means it. She said she
loves me but she is not in love with me. I keep on panicking and
often want to call her and beg her back. I will do anything to make
things right, but no matter how hard I try, she does not want to
know. I can't seem to get back to that little spot of sunlight where
I felt so comfortable and safe.

This may appear hard, but I have to tell you like it is. This
girl is playing you. You have just got to forget her, but I know
it's not as easy as it sounds. Please, take her off that pedestal.
Don't idolise her and build her up into something greater than
she is. Don't gaze lovingly at pictures of her, and don't jump
to answer her e-mail or phone calls. And definitely don't go
out of your way for her. She no longer deserves preferential
You have got to get closure, Michael. It's essential to defini-
tively end any hopes of reconciliation between the two of you.
And if you can't get that into your head, she owes you the cour-
tesy of making it crystal clear. She should tell you: 'I never loved
you. I don't love you now. We'll never get back together.' After
some prodding, she'll probably do it, just to get rid of you. It pro-
vides what therapists call 'closure'. And you can begin to heal.
After the relationship reaches finality, you have to break off
contact, or you will go mad. Don't beg or cry. Don't drunk-dial.
Don't send her e-mails. Don't send packages or CDs. Don't dedi-

a collective experience that
movies became popular ev-
Ierywhere. Wherever cin-
emas are closed or stopped be-
ing built, the popularity of mov-
ies, especially classic movies, are
seen to decline.
Films lose half their popu

when they are only seen in the
privacy of the home, because
te 'ere no mad in se n

privately on DVDs does not
mean that collective viewings on

On the contrary, the neces-
sity of continuing to see films
in collective social gatherings re-
ceived new impetus during the
1950s when Hollywood film
studios began to sell their older
films to TV studios. This
started the trend of seeing films
on television, a trend that began
in North America at least 40
years before it came to Guyana,
so Guyanese were thankfully
able to continue seeing all the
Great classic films, day after day,
week after week --144 diff~er-
ent films per week amongst
Georgetown's nine cinemas.

Charging '~Itends
In the er 1980s, Hollywood

fimc sdios bgan to closed th
amdrecpaH their nuttd a of films

stored her~e. The films were
shipped back to Hollywood to aid
in the process of transferal to Video
then DVD. intended mostly for
small TV screens. After both old
classic films an~d recent ones began
to be transferred to videos and
DVDs, they rarely appeared in cin-
emlas, as in the past. And that is
how. today, most Guyanese cin-
emas (if there are any left) show
only new films, whereas in the past,
they continually showed all films
- old classics, recent, and just-
made films.
This total diversity of films
shown in, local cinemas pro-
vided immense excitement, in-
terest, and education for
Guyanese film viewers, and
when it stopped, the local cin-
ema nduost film rlva t
Guyanese on the whole were
foreign products from Holly-
wood, Europe, or India, the lo-
cal film industry and its audi-

of foreign film-industry deci-
sions, which apparently aban-
doned the Guyanese public to
a less collective and profession~
ally guided process of film
choice and viewing provided by
personal TV channel viewing,
and inexperienced personal se-
lection. However, in the USA,
Canada, Europe, and Latin
America, dedicated film experts
involved in studying and evalu-
ating the social, artistic, educa-
tional ,and humane value of spe-
cific, and classic tilms, realised that
an end to collective viewing was
not an educationally progressive
development, so, as past fims be-
carefully for their civilised benefits,

ous large auditoriums attached to
art museums, theatres, and univer
sities, became screening rooms

where thle greatest classic an~d re-
cent films world-wide once again
found collective exposure both

free, if' shown by the commercially
restrictive process of videos and
Today. some of the leading
popular places to see such classic
cinema progmmnmes on big screens
are the comfortable auditoriums of
The Museum of Modern Art in
New York city; The Cinematique
Ontario attached to The Art Gal-
lery of Ontario in Toronto, Canada;
The Museum of the Moving Im-
age in London, in the UK; The
Museo de Bellas Artes of Caracas,
in neighboring Venezuela; and nu-
merous similar public institutions
across the planet.

Classic 'llsesdays

It is only in recent years
that this same social necessity

rated at Castellani House,
Guyana's national art gallery,
with its monthly 'Classic Tues-
days' film programme. This sort
of programme is expected to be
extended even further with the
available auditorium at the
soon-to-be-opened renovated
Theatre Guild in Georgetown,
which should not only show
films related to classical plays,
but provide a regular bona fide
classic film programme.
How do such programmes
thrive, holding public interest?
One of the most exciting,
pleasurable, and educational
ways of achieving this is by de-
signing film programmes where

Silly 'action' fihnms
itota clear focus
on how to manage
the release of films
for collective public viewing,
many absurd developments oc-
curred in the Guyanese cinema
industry. After the Hollywood
film depots began to close down
during the insular nationalist
policies of the 1980s, the door
was left wide open for the in-
flux of mostly poor quality, silly
'action' films which began to
dominate local film program-
ming. Even more short-sighted
was the idea that Indian or
Bollywood films could fill the gap
left by the absence of Hollywood
and European films that were no
longereasily available in large quan-
tities on Georgetown cinema
screens. Subsequently, even though
Indian or Bollywood films were al-
ways shown from time to time at
every city cinema, entire film

programmes at recognized

now began to show only Indianl
Bollywood films, ignoring the fact
that these cmnemas were mnthe midst
ofneighbouthoods and city districts
where citizens were of all racial
backgrounds and had been regular
participants of film programmes
thatreflected cosmopolitan values,
topics, and issues of such a spe-
cifically non-ethnic lifestyle.
Consequently, film attendance
for those cinemas dropped, since
most of their patrons were really
commuters to the city from rural
areas, and such cinemas lost their
relevance to Guyanese on the
whole, which further hastened their
closing down.
The role of classic cinema
and fashion in Guyanese civil-
ity is, therefore, not an irrel-
evant luxury but an issue with

Rules of conduct

I have been obsessed with a
male teacher of mine for

looks they gave each other,

som e on ev nno go n-
fronted my husband. He re-
plied, "Don't be ridiculous."

He said he loves me and goes to
participate in the sport and had
him I loved him too, but I also
said my first warning was to

months. I am a 16-year-old
girl, and he is in his late 30s,
married, with young chil-
We have a nice rapport and
are friends in a very appropri-
ate sense. I've been to his place
to meet his family a couple of
times. He is proper and respect-
ful to me, as a teacher should
be. However, I have a huge
crush on him. I think about him
constantly, and every time we
exchange a few words, my heart
I hope this obsession will
die down, but in the mean-
time, I want to know what to
do. I know we can't be more
than friends, even though I'd
love to kiss him. Should I
discuss \my feelings with
him? I want to talk to him
about it, but I don't want him
to be uncomfortable.

Crush is ot a 'we tig t

thing you experience and let
pass. Left alone, time takes

care of it, and your letter
shows you know that.
If you believe that is true,
then why do you want to talk
to your teacher about it? Be-
cause you still have a fantasy
about making something occur.
Some part of you wants to test
your powers on him, even
though he is liot actively seek-
ing a relationship.
In legal ethics, there is a
principle known as "the ap-
pearance of evil." What it
means is that lawyers, and es-
pecially judges, should not only
avoid doing things which are
wrong, they should avoid even
what could erk~oneously be per-
ceived as being wrong. That is
the position your teacher is in.
For the sake of a roman-
tic play in your head, you

I don't know whether to call
it jealousy or insecurity. My
husband and I have been
married almost 30 years. Last
year at my husband's surprise
birthday party, one of my
friends asked who a certain
woman in the room was.
When l asked why, she said,
"She and your husband have
been making eye contact all
night, and he seems to be pay-
ing her a lot of attention."
From there on, I started watch-
ing the behaviour between them.
My husband participates in
a sport with this woman's hus-
band, and at times we are all to

Sunday Chronicle June 15, 200E

Oswald Tappin, whose testi-
mony was questionable, and the
evidence of witnesses who said
they heard the dying woman
shout: "Mummy, Mummy,
look how 'Bull' come and lash

Defence lawyers, Messrs
Rex Mc Kay, Stanley Moore
and Vidyanand Persaud, on ap-
peal, argued that Tappin's evi-
dence was unsatisfactory, and
that the alleged words used by
the deceased as narrated by the
witnesses did not form part of
the res gestae, since it was not
contemporaneous and therefore
could not form part of the res
gestae part of the event.

Assistant Director of Pub-
lic Prosecutions, Mr Desmond
Christian represented the pros-

Defence Counisel contended

IN 1988, the Guyana Court of
Appeal headed by Chancellor
of the Judiciary, Justice Ken-
neth George, set aside the
murder conviction and death
sentence on Frank Martin, on
the grounds that the trial
judge, among other things,
wrongly admitted hearsay
evidence, when that evidence
was not part of the Res ges-
tae exception to the hear-
say rule.

Their Lordships, Chancellor
George, and Justices of Appeal
Messrs Cecil Kennard and
Maurice Churaman allowed the
appeal by Martin, also known
as 'Bull', And set aside the con-
viction and death sentence.

Martin had been sentenced
to death for the murder of one
Elizabeth Griffith of
Albouystown on the evidence
of an 18-year-old witness named

that the trial judge had failed in
his direction to the jury to tell
them about the need to regard
the possibility of concoction or
distortion and to approach the
evidence with caution.

in its judgment, the Appel-
late Court pointed out that if a
statement is made in circum-
stances of spontaneity and is
contemporaneous (or substan-
tially so) with the event which
excited it, so that the possibil-
ity of concoction, distortion,
adaptation or error can be ruled
out, it may be admitted as part
of the res gestae to show the
truth of the facts reported.

But the trial judge, the judg-
ment said, should warn the jury
to have regard (inter alia) to the
possibility of concoction or dis
tortion and to approach the evi-
dence with caution as the maker
of the statement was not under


It was pointed out that
only in rare cases should a trial
judge be satisfied that a state-
ment proposed to be given in
evidence, but made by a person
.who is not called as a witness,
has not been concocted or
adapted without embarking on
a voir dire. However, it was ex-
plained that there was no rule
in law which said that a voir dire
must be held in such circum-

Frank Martin was con-
victed of murder on October 22,
1987 and sentenced to death.

Chancellor George had set
out the facts in his judgment.

He said that the uncompli-
cated nature of the facts in the
appeals belied the legal prob-
lems that had arisen. The facts
as presented by the State at the
trial were as follows:

Oswald Tappin, aged 18
years, was sitting alongside the
deceased, Elizabeth Griffith on
a plank next to a step in a yard
in Barr Street, Albouystown. It
w about 7:30 pmad th r
ws a black-out fmhe accuse ,
who was playn cards under
the stairs of an t er house in the
yard, came up to them. He had
a piece of wood in his hand. He
expressed his displeasure to the
deceased about something that
she had done earlier. She replied
that the worst he could do was
to lash her. He thereupon
struck her on her head in the vi
cinity of the temple with the
piece of wood.

According to Chancellor
George: "All this evidence came

of murder and was convicted of
that offence by an Assize jury

ELVIRA Sarmiento and her
husband checked one suit-

Maiquetia International
Airport when they boarded
a flight to Madrid at the
end of February. When
they returned to Caracas a
month later, the couple
had seven suitcases be-

shopping spree they in-
dulged in during their
holiday in Spain and Italy.
The 38-year-old mother
of three has President Hugo
Chivez to thank, in part, for
her spendthrift vacation:
When his government intro-

capital flight, Venezuelans
holding credit cards were al-
located an annual quota of
$5,000, plus $500 in cash for
international travel at the
overvalued official rate of
2,150 bolivars to the dollar.
Instead of paying upwards of
$800 for her round-trip plane
ticket, Sarmiento coughed up
a mere $360 under an ex-
change-control regime that
favours many of the middle
and upper-class Venezuelans
who make up the backbone
of Chivez's internal opposi-
tion. "Everybody's trav~el-
ling," says Sarmiento. "If
you do the math, it's very

significant ipereitsk in the
:amount of liquidity in
people's pockets," notes
Humberto Figuera, executive
president of the Venezuelan

CMike India. "9
After living -through a de-
cade of conflict with his wife
and two children, he was hired
in 2006 by the UN to be what
he calls a "radio host for peace."
He broadcasts in four lan-
guages and, in between spins of
Rwandan and Congolese pop
hits and American country mu-
sic, he announces the latest de-
velopments in the UN's
demobilisation programme.
The programme has been
running for four years now and
has met with some success, as
more than 5,000 of the FDLR
have returned to Rwanda.
But judging by the mood at
a January peace conference in
Goma, the roughly 7,000 rebels
that remain will not be welcome
in the country much longer.
So, these days, Mike
India's message to the rebels is
simpler than ever go home or
be killed.
Earlier this year, the UN Se-
curity Council demanded that "all
members of the FDLR... and other
Rwandan armed groups operating
in the [east] immediately lay down
their arms" and surrender to the
UN for repatriation to Rwanda.
Any delay, and UN soldiers were
authorised "to use all necessary
means" to support operations by
the Congolese military to remove
the Rwandans by force.
Over the past few months, the
anny has deployed to FDLR-oc-
cupied zones of North Kivu in
preparation for a fight, effectively
to fight the rebels on their own
turf .
Mike India is hoping it does
notgetitsoitto siiln to get the
FDLR out of the DR Congo by
force," he says.
"It will backfire. It will be

By Michael J Kavanagh

AT 0500 on a mountaintop in
the forests of eastern Demo-
cratic Republic of Congo,
Michel Sibilondire struggles
to start his generator.
As it finally chugs to life,
Mr Sibilondire points to the
trees in the distance, still
shrouded in mist.
"One kilometre from
here, you will start to see
them in ones and twos. And
if you keep going for about
30km, you wIill come to the
place where the FDLR have
been living for years and
years," he says.
The FDLR are the Demo-
cratic Forces for the Libera-
tion of Rwanda a
Rwandan Hutu rebel group
whose existence in the DR
Congo can be traced back to
the 1994 Rwandan genocide
which, it is thought. some of
its members helped pe-rpe-
S since the n, the y have
hidden in the country's for-
ests and, along with other mili-
tias, continue to threaten the sta-
bility of the region.
Mr Sibilondire's job is to
get them to go home-

very bad for the Congolese

SDemobilisation package

Philip Lancaster, who runs
the UN's demobilisation
programme in the country, says
the unprofessional state of the
Congolese army which has
fought side by side with the
FDLR in the past will make
protecting civilians a challenge
during any military action.
"Because of the integrated
way in which the FDLR have
taken up residence in the Con-
golese communities, the kinds
of actions that need to be taken
are more along the line of police
action than military," Mr
Lancaster says.
He believes the main prob-
lem is fear, which is "so deeply
embedded in their- psyche that
finding a way past it is a real
challenge. ,
"They are still absolutely con-
vinced that if they go home to
Rwanda today they will be killed
orimprisoned or humiliated in some
way," he explains.
If the rebels participated in the
genocide they will face justice in
Rwandan courts but the num-
ber who actively perpetrated geno-
cide is believed to be only arourid a
dozen, as most of the current fight-
ers are believed to have been chil-
dren in 1994.
So when Mike India goes on
the air, he fills his broadcast with
reassuring messages about peace,
safety and the demobilisation
package of money, training and
other basic support.

tween the hours of 0100 and
0400 when mobile calls are

Some rebels want to know
where to demobilize; others rant
about Paul Kagame, the current
Rwandan president and former
Tutsi rebel leader. Some just
want Mike India to play differ-
ent music.
They give a real insight into
the rebels' mentality.


"Hello- Mike India!" one
SMS in Swahili reads. "We are
with the FDLR I am a cap-
tain in Rusamambo. When God
wishes, we are ready to return
to Rwanda."
Seconds later, another mes-
sage comes from a Congolese
citizen: "Congoratulations! Keep
telling the FDLR to leave our
country and return home. We are
tired of them. They attack us.
They steal, theyl bur~n our ve-
hicles aund if. they return. it will
be good thing.''
Getting the rebels to lay
down their weapons is all about
building trust, and personal ap-
peals seem to work best.
But the process is slow -
about one or two ex-combatants
are moving through the UN's
transit camps each day.
And Mike India knows he
does not have that much time.
Tensions are growing be-
tween the FDLR and the Con-
golese army as it deploys
throughout the region. These
days, he is broadcastingiat least
10 hours a day and he is sleep-
ing with his transmitter.

The most senior Saudi clerics do not seem to agree. In March, the Grand Mufti ordered a Riyadh
university to cancel a women's marathon. Religious leaders banned a football match last year.
But things are changing. This year, Arwa Mutabagani was the first Saudi woman to be appointed
as a top sports administrator, at the Equestrian Federation.
At a centre Ms Mutabagani set-up in Jeddah, Abdullah al-Shurbatly canters around the arena
watched by a few young women.

The dashing young equestrian will compete this summer in Beijing on his English horse, Hugo, and
is one of the big Saudi medal hopes.
Behind these high walls, other young women are also learning to ride.
"'Only 50 girls are riding, and they are not that good, because here in the national shows they are
not allokled to ride," he said.
"When they compete in Europe and start to do competitions and train hard, they are going to get
better "
No-one from the Saudi Olympic Committee was available for interview, but the International Olym-
pic Committee is thought to be putting increasing pressure on them to include women in the future.
London 2012 may therefore see Saudi women Olympians for the first time. If not, it is
conceivable the Kingdom may not be allowed to enter an all-male team. (BBC News)

(An ode to a man who's been a father in every sense of thie word.)

By V~nsa Narine

Dad is the one iv~ s always there.
To lead and adv se and always care.
Dad is the strength that maintains a home.
He's the one who guides when troubles roll

Dad is the provide wo puts his family first, .
He s thle one who protects, lest we are hurt.
Dad is a dilscplinaranan, Lho never spares the rod.
He s thle one w~ho comlforis w~hen w~e are sad.

Dad is the priest. who guides his family toGo
He s the oned who) keeps us on the narrow path
Dad is the one. who loves beyond all measure
He s the one w~ho 11 have a place in our hearts forever;

ebrated on the

where in the world, but the
concept of hoisouring dads
with a special day seems to be
universal. Today is Father's
Day in Guyana, but unfortu-
nately for some children, they
will never be able to know a
father's love, or even experi-
ence his blessing, for one rea-
son or another. For example,
Johnny was just six months
when his father died. Frank
was still in his mother's

My own father died when
I was 12 years old. I have held
dear memories of him since
then. In his own way, he was a
disciplinarian; always being
there for me and a povider who
loved him, and even though we
did not live under the same roof,
his visits were always warm and

ment exhorts as to

And Genesis 22:1-
10 is a testimony of

Abraham honoured
and obeyed God,
his heavenly father,
to the point where
he was willing to
sacrifice his own
son. Even Isaac
was disposed to
being sacrificed be-
sause ofthe abiding
lore he had for

It is amazing
how some of these
samep~nciples are

also evident in the lives of ani-
mals. Whilst walking in the Na-
tional Park one morning, I ob-
served a stallion, a mare and a
colt grazing along the grounds.
Suddenly, the stallion neighed
loudly as if expressing displea-
sure; the mare began to pounce
away with her colt in her wake.
The stallion neighed again, this
time a bit louder, lifting his head
high. H~is mane stood up and his
hoofs hit the gravel with a thud.
As if sensing the seriousness of

the stallion's actions, the mare
stopped, turned back, looked at
him for some time, and eventu-
ally the three started walking
together. I later learnt that it was
a family indeed. Undoubtedly,
he was asserting his authority as
the head. Whether he was so en-
titled or not, is another story.
While some children will re-
member their father as a pro-
vider, a friend, a disciplinarian,
one who loves them or one who

fears God, others will find theirs
reprehensible. My 'father loved
me; Abraham loved God, had
faith in Him. And so did Isaac.
For the stallion and his family,
it appears as though the lesson
was also love and togetherness.
Fathers, take heart; your
children love you. Many of
you have left us a legacy
which is reminiscent of the
way you have impacted on
our lives.

Some evidence suggests that
it helps get the brain ready for
the next task, although this re-
mains a controversial theory.
A number of techniques are
used to assess the level of con-
sciousness in people following
head injury, and while some are
diagnosed as 'brain dead', with
no sign of any activity in the
brain, it can be difficult to make
an exact diagnosis when the pa-
tient has a higher level of activ-
ity, but is still unconscious.
Dr Steven Laureys, from
the University of Liege in Bel-
gium, believes that activity
within the network could help
confirm the level of conscious-
ntss, and help doctors decide on
whether or not to treat them.
He measured activity in 13
brain-injured patients with a va-
riety of different levels of con-
Some were 'minimally con-
scious', while others were in a
coma, or a persistent vegetative
state (PVS)., A final group was
'brain dead'.
.He found that minimally
conscious patients had only a
10% fall in normal activity in
this area, while in coma and PVS
patients, it fell by approxi-
mately 35%.
There was no activity at all
in the brain-dead patients.

Clinical test
Dr Laureys told New Scien-
tist this could be more reliable
method of assessing patients:
"We could just scan someone
for 10 minfltes and get an easily'
quantifiable readout."
Dr Jon Simons, a neurosci-
entist from "Cambridge 1)nivier-
sity;, said that the study, al-
though preliminary. was "ver-y
"Ilt suggests that connectiv-
ity in the delault network might
correlate with level of con-
sciousness as measured by a

"Although the functional
significance of the default
network is still being hotly
debated, this.study does sug-
gest that scans of the default
network might perhaps have
clinical utility as a diagnostic
tool." (BBC News)

conviction as to the appropriateness of his remarks and as to
the urgency' to deal with the issues he raised: I heard him during
other sessions and there was nothing but praise for the manner
in which he handled the agenda items and the speakers. The job

that he never showed signs of inattention. My only other com-

adopted by this WHA is aimedsat improving access to safe, ef-
fective, low-cost medications by removing barriers to essential
research and development of public health. Efforts to improve
access to antiretroviral drugs and other vital medications are key
priority for PEPFAR. We look forward to working with you to
follow up on this and other achievements from this WHA. We

By Norman Faria

Last September, while
visiting Guyana, I
checked out a fewc of
the Georgetown stores
selling CDs and cas-
sette music tapes,
Being a long-time
collector, I asked a few of
the sales clerks and man
agers if they carried any
of what older readers
would know as long-play-
ing records (LPs).
They looked at
me with blank stares. It
was understandable. For
the younger set now us-
ing CDs, I-pods, and (de-
creasingly) cassette
tapes, it may seem in-
to them to learn that
there was once another
way of listening to music.
This was the
large plate-sized, usually
black, plastic (it was ac-
tually made of vinyl and
previously, the harder
and more brittle shellac)
discs which you placed
on a record player, whose
needle nestled in grooves
on the record disc as it
spun. They came in tvo
sizes: The 12-inch diam-
eter type which revolved
at 33? revolutions per
minute, and the smaller
'78s' which usually had
one song on each side.
This analog LP format
reached its popularity
apex during the late
1950s up to the 1980s
when the digitally driven
CD revolution took over.
The first records came on
the market in 1948.
I was intrigued to
learn from a recent news
story out of Portland, Or-
egon in the US, that the
sale of LPs had increased
by 36 per cent from 2006
.to 2007. This increase is
probably because of me-
dia hype and advertising
campaigns/gimmickry by
specialty outfits. If we
use another set of statis-
tics, which show that in
2007, just under one mil-
lion LPs were sold (pre-
sumably on the US mar-
ket) compared to 450 mil-
lion CDs, the fact of the
matter is that LPs are
still popular, even with
only a small number of
aficionados and romnan-

ings. CDs rarely have
There are some
Guyanese, Caribbean and
other hemispheric musi-
cal expressions which, at
this stage, are only on
LPs. We need to preserve
this part of our cultural
heritage. Happily, the
technology is there for
material on LPs to be
transferred to CD format.
I was deeply
honoured to be taken on
a tour of the record li-
brary of the radio station
in Georgetown by the
hardworking staff there a
few years back. The num-
ber-one task of properly
maintaining an LP collec-
tion, as the library staff
will tell you, is making
sure they are kept in
their covers and plastic
liners. If not, dust can
accumulate and this can
stick on the needle and
cause distortion of sound
quality. Keep out heat
and moisture. I remember
placing a couple of LPs in
the back of my car and for-
getting them there while
the vehicle was parked in
the hot sun all day.

When I got back, the
sun's direct rays and
heat had caused them to
curl up like oversized po~
tato chips.
For those youth
now starting to appreci-
ate music, it's good to
look into the. different
musical styles over the
years, especially popular
music. This is particu-
larly true for those wish-
ing to earn a living as a
musician (not too many
of those these days,
which is a pity and will be
the subject of another ar~
`ticle). There is some
beautiful music from mu-
sicians of all races in the
late 1940s, 1950s, and
1960s, ~especially from US
mitsic culture. This could
be swing, jazz, ballads,
rock and roll, funk or
whatever. 'Oldie Goldies'
appear to be forever
popular. Of course, there
is our indigenous ca-
lypso, chutney and other
music brought from India
and other places. It is
said that to appreciate
art and creativity from
other cultures, so as to
get a better understand-

ing of life, makes u:

Faria is Guyana's EZ
orary Consul in Ba'3

The debate on
quality between LPs and
CDs continues. Some say
the older LPs have a bet-
ter quality. Others say
that with the new digital
technology, more songs
can be carried on CDs.
Another school of
thought is that though
both CDs and LPs can be
easily scratched, the
chances of the larger LP
being damaged are
greater. Yet others feel
that being much smaller
and lighter, CDs can be
carried around on your
person and in luggage
without much bother.
Some say too that
whereas you can track
individual songs on CDs,
with an LP, you have to
play the whole side in
one go, or pick up the
needle and place it on
the desired song, thereby
running the risk of dam-
aging the record.
I remember when
working and studying in
Toronto in the 1960s and
1970s, nearly every Sat-
urday I would go to the
famous 'Sam the Record
Man' or 'A & A Record
Stores' on downtown
Yonge Street and blow
ten or so dollars on one
or two LPs. One of the
'bins' I would head for
had old 1940s and 1950s
dance music. The quality
of recording for that pe-
riod was way below
today's exacting stan-
dards. Some of the re-
cording was done in noisy
nightclubs. One amateur
drilled a hole through the
ceiling of a night spot

where the great American
saxophonist, John
Coltrane was playing and
lowered his mike through
Never mind. One
read somewhere that to
listen to some of the old
'pure' music (without
mixing, overdubbing, lip
syncing and other emas-
culating techniques to
rob original situation of
its context, originality
and creativity), you have
to lean forward a
bit. This means you
had to -- in the old days,
with all the background
noise, scratches and im-
perfections on the record-
ings 'lean' closer to the
There are many
Guyanese families who
still have their collection
of LPs and the old record
player somewhere. Re-
grettably, some collec-
tions got thrown out.
The-beauty of existing
collections, as at the ra-
dio station, is that some
of your favourite music,
which isn't yet on CDs or
too expensive, may still
be accessed.
Interestingly, the
'best-selling' LP on
online music firm,
Amazon.com, is the
Beatles 'Abbey Road' al-

Since then, the Venezuelan

attention to his own African

shocking. But such language
would have been inconceiv-

compensation for oil. "The government of Sudan has been
pushed by Chinese companies to create a problem between Arabs
and blacks, but the West forgets this," says Hari, who now has po-
litical-refugee status in the United States. "The lands had to be emp-
tied for the Chinese companies to come to work, but people re-
fused to accept the destruction of their villages. So they picked up
guns against Khartoum." The ensuing fighting and political unrest
has led to the massacre of Hundreds of thousands of people, and
Ithe displacement of more thalti~2.5 million since the rebel insurgency
started in 2003.
In the book, Hari recounts how he learned English at school
and started working as a trimslator for international aid workers
and journalists after his village was destroyed. "It was my way of
fighting back," he says. In uncluttered prose and a soft voice, he
speaks poignantly of how the conflict utterly transformed his home-
land. "Growing up, I lived its a multicultural community," he says.
"We are all Muslims, and as children, we all played together." He
describes a shared way of livihg based on warmth and generosity.
"But the people are angry now\ and have become aggressive," he
adds. "This conflict has nor just murdered old friends. It has de-
stroyed a culture, .
Amid the torment, Had retains a sense of humour. When he
was captured at gunpoint while working for British journalist, Philip
Cox, he writes: "I still had to translate things. I said, 'Philip, these
guys are going to shoot me. Co-uld !ou go through the numbers in
~your phone?' He found the rebe~l comlmander's number and called
:him, and he told his rebe~l not to, ishol me." But he's a lighter touch
in personil "[Westerni loc~iety is very materialistic. You have four-
wheel drives," he says witlh a laugh. "but you complain about the
price of gas." Still, his grief is ner\~ far away. "You have every-
thing, but you don't know:2you hate everything," he says. "You
should think about ihe reality of D~arfur."
.That reality is crystlllzild In the lives of the region's~womeq.
Hari tells ~of their beaut) agg the bold colours they wore in times;
or peace: the bright. c7lears 5J. oranges and yellows; the b~rillian~t
blues aind greens. But Lhe lve, are nven by despair; he desenbes
a 30-year-old mother fo .h~an~ngin from a tree, her dead babies
SI~ing in the shade of her afuspe~nded corpse. She had been raped
repealedly and then se tr ~ino the desert. "With no food or water.
. for five days, there rn s notltg she could do except watch ~herchil-
dren die'," he writes. So she tied her shawl around her ne~Ck and
took her own life.
He spares no detall In recounting the Janjaweed's atrocities.
When a four--year-old girl run\ crying toward her imprisoned fa-
ther as he is beaten by soldiers, an Army officer coolly lowers his
bayonet and pushes it throligb her tiny body, raising the child above
his head to dance under raxndrolps of her blood. He describes girls
as young as eight who are ntualli raped, and the pain written deep
in their flat eyes and 10Icels. But Hari's point is notiyo shock or
horrify; it is to record and~pay tribute. "Our women have been
displaced from their homes; they have lost their husbands," he says.
"But when you enter a refugee camp, you'll still find children r~m-
ning around, the smoke of sinall fires, the cooking smells of spices
and tea. Despite the atrocities, our women continue to live and

Through 'The Translator', Hari not only tells his own har-
rowing story of survival, but aims to speak for his people, keep-
ing them alive in the global conscience. "When I was a child,
my grandmother would recolint happy, fantastical tales," he
says. "It is part of our tradition. Now I'm telling the stories.'-
The stories are neither happy nor imagined. But Hari's volce
is loud, strong and impossible to forget. (Reprinted fr~om

making things interesting once again! Let other people travel the well-worn highway
of life, never doing anything that scares them. For you, today, it's all about makil
your own way and facing unfamiliar challenges. You can do it!

TAURUS -- The less you have financial dealings with others today, the better. L:
not that you necessarily need to save any money, it's just that your emotions ai
uncertain, and you could be associating buying something with solving something
Paying a problem to go away isn't the right idea it will only help you waste you
money. You need to focus on any challenges you encounter the right way. They wUi
take hard work, but hard work is the only way to solve things, once and for all.

GEMINI -- Observe the environment around you closely today especially when!
you are in a crowded location. Not only will the people-watching be great, it will
also be educational and even maybe -a little inspiring. Expect to collect Some nc:is
fashion ideas and a juicy titbit of overheard gossip. Maybe you'll even make lingerl-
ing eye contact with a cute stranger! Today it will be way more fun sitting on thez
-sidelines watching the world go by than it would be living in the center of the action.

CANCER -- You probably doli't want to go public with your latest private life
problem, and the good news is that you don't really have to just share the new\s
about your current predicament with the one or two people in-your life who really
know you, inside and out. Divulge only as much as you want, they will probably bc
able to guess the rest. If you shaie too much too soon, the conversation could dis-
solvre into a mutual whine-fest, and no one will get much done.

LEO -- The people around you todity don't seem like they are saying what they
truly mean could they be holisiig their tongue because they are afraid of hurting
your feelings or ticking you off? When they ask you for your opinions, you don't
mince words so why should they? Speak up and let them know that when you
ask them a question, you expect thatruth. Ask for this kind of honesty today and
be prepared for what it may brini'g you. Dancing around the truth is a waste of time.

VIRGO -- Not in a social mnood right now? Force yourself. It ~might sound-
counterintuitive, but if you are~dreading that upcoming party or night out, the last
thing you should do is cancel your reservation and stay home on the couch like you
want to. Your gut may be telling you to stay home, but the universe is telling you to
go out and the universe always trumps your gut. Once you get out there and see
the people and feel the energy around you, you'll get swept up into the action and
enjoy yourself.

LIBRA -- Soon, someone youi care about is celebrating a birthday or anniversary of
some sort and you should mhake sure they know that you remembered! Belated
wishes are fine, but it's much mbre meaningful if you can be prepared and greet them
the right way at the right time, Try to be~ more expressive~ about how you feel by
writing a poem, making them a little gift, or creating a card that it more genuine than
anything from a store. You will be so happy and proud of yourself for treating them

SCORPIO -- Today, that bad, nagging feeling you've been having about something
or someone will start to fade awify. All of your worries were unfounded, which will
become evident by the end of tobay.]jYou trusted your instincts, but they turned out
to be wrong it is extremely rate, -but it does happen. Don't focus on the fact that
you were wrong focus on the ~fact that your stress is ending! And in the future,
you don't have to doubt yourself. Things happen for a reason.

SAGITTARIUS --Today, all of your choices and ideas wil have eve one buzz-
mng with admiration and maybe even just a wee bit of jealousy. But you can't let
other people's envy get you down. Keep on busting out with your smart style, and
stop caring who's getting all worked up about it. It's their problem if thep can't give~
Syou support~without giving you athtude. You can (and should) serve assix good ex-
Sample for them to follow. Show them that being an independent thinker is' key.

SCAPRICORN -- It wouldn't hurt you ~to have a little more discipline in your life,
:so why are you so annoyed by the pro)Spect of following the rules? Kilosiing what~is
right and wvhat is wrong doesn't have to feel stifling if you just switjhh your per-
,spective, rules will actually help to simpilify your life and give you a cleiir idea of the
Path you should be on. Playing around iind goofing off is fun, but is it really getting
you anywhere? This behavior is just keeping you going in circles.

AQUARIUS --The advice you give tokfends today might not be warmly received,
but it will silik in nevertheless. So don't think that just because they der't thank yoru
for what yoti said that they didn't listed to it. Passing on what you ~have learned
from your past mistakes is someth g~mideniably valuable and they know ttiig.
They are glad you care enough to gliewislp about what you know iv but not neces-
sarily eager to do as you say. They have their own life to lead, and:their own mis-
takes to learn from.
PISCES --It is always wise to qjestion authority, but you should hlot go so far as
disrespectmng the people who are iii power right now. You need to believe that thiey
are doing the right thing unless and until you see proof of anything different. Do not
listen to the people who are trashitalking the powers that be right now. They have
ulterior motives, and are trying to get you to see things their way. Instead, you shotild
look at the facts, so that you can see things your way.

Dear students,
Now is the time to understand what effi-
cient revision is. Efficient revision re-
places shallow learning with learning in
depth. It replaces bewilderment with
confidence. It replaces the myth of a few
fortunate people with photographic
memories with the realization that you
can use your visual memory to aid recall.
It also replaces the common, useless
feeling of guilt with a structured revi-
sion programme. Be wise now!
Love you.

The Excerpt

As I entered Junior High, Papa and
Mama, whom I had loved-without ques-
tion, suddenly became an embarrassment.
Why couldn't they be like other parents?
Why didn't they speak without accents?
Why couldn't I like peanut-butter-and-
jelly sandwiches in my school lunches,
rather then calamari? (Yuck, the other
kids said, he eats squid legs!) There
seemed no escape from the painful stigma
I felt in being Italian, the son of Tulio
and Rosa. "Buscaglia" even my name
became a source of distress.
One day, as I left school, I found my-
self surrounded by a group of boys. "Dirty
Dago!" they shouted. "Your mom's a garlic
licker, and you're a son of a dirty wop. Go
back where you came from!"
It seemed an eternity before I was re-
leased from the circle of pushes, punches
and taunts. I wasn't really certain what the
epithets meant, but I felt their sting. Hu-
miliated and in tears, I broke free and
dashed home. I locked myself in the bath-
room, but I couldn't stop the tears. What
happened seemed so wrong, yet I felt help-
less to do anything about it-
Papa knocked on the door. "What's
the matter?" he asked. "What is it?"
I unlatched the door, and he took me
in his arms. Then he sat on the edge of the
bathtub with me. "Now tell," he said-
When I finished the story, I waited. I
guess I expected Papa to immediately set off
in search of the bullies or at least find their
parents and demand retribution. But Papa
didn't move.
"I see," he said quietly. "They finally
found you. Those cowards who don't know
us but hate us all the same. I know they
hurt you, but what they did wasn't meant
just for you. It could have been anyone who
is different."
"I hate being Italian!" I confessed an-
Igrly. "I wish I could have been? anything
Papa held me firmly now, and his
M'~ikce had an edge of anger. "Never let me
Wear you say that again! Italians make
beautiful music, paint wonderful pictures,
write great books and build beautiful build-
ings. Flow can you not be proud of being
Italian? And you're extra lucky, because
you're an American too."
"But I don't want to be different!" I
objected. "I'd rather be like anyone else."
"Well, you're not like anyone else.
God never intended us all to be the same.
And would you want to be like the boys who
hurt you?"
"Then wipe your tears and be proud of

who you are...."
(Taken from "Papa was an American" by Leo

What to Do
1. There is a degree of frustration and depres-
sion surrounding the young boy's school life-
What things did he say to show that feeling?
2. Tell what you think about the writer's use
of the sentence: "I know they hurt you, but what
they did wasn't meant just for you." How does it
help build the story line and atmosphere?
3. What makes you want (or not want) to con-
tinue reading more of the story?
4. Have you ever written a story about a
people's plight? Read some more stories about
life's challenges for the young and not-so-young
immigrants. There are many such challenges that
are told. Write a story of your own choosing. The
ideas in this passage can help you with beautiful
ideas to produce well balanced stories. Get your
Commonplace Book and file the story if you wish-
(For those of you who do not know, a Common-
place Book is a collection of items that have some
special significance for you personally and that
may eventually become a source of writing ideas
that you can use for other writing.)


In the following exercises copy the sen-
tences and supply the correct capital letters
and punctuation marks. Also make necessary
corrections in abbreviations and numbers.
Exchange papers with your study partners for

Bringing the Story to Life
There are many ways to bring a story to life.
One way to make your writing livelier is to pay at-
tention to subject/predicate order. Just what is
that? Well, most often, the subject comes before
the predicate; but to make a sentence more in-
teresting, you may reorganise the predicate and
put it first. Please do not overuse this strategy;
use it when appropriate!

First, let us see how the sentence looks with
the subject at its beginning.

The bite / was as vicious as the accusa-
tion. (Subject = bite; verb = was)
The speaker / gesticulated at her audi-

Now, let us see how it looks when the predi-
cate is put first.

first. Read and enjoy
Winnie the Pooh."

Winnie the Pooh
has a normal cat's
fear of dogs. Last
Tuesday afternoon
while crossing the
front lawn, Winnie
spotted a
neig hbourhood
stray moving in
quickly from the
right. Winnie was
away like lightning.
Across the street
she dashed and up a
steep hill into a gar-
den of saguaro eac-
tus. Surely she
would be safe here,
hidden among these
sturdy desert

"A black cat named

But Winnie was wrong. The dog overtook
her. With a tremendous leap Winnie scrambled
up the thick, woody stem of a giant saguaro. Up,
up she climbed, scrabbling frantically until she
gained then top.
Some neighbours spied the black-and-white
cat sitting fifteen feet up on the very top of the
huge cactus.
"Call the Humane Society!" cried one.
"No, send for the police!" shouted another.
"Get the Fire Department!" exclaimed a
But no one could help the little cat. Safe
enough but alone, she looked for all the world like
a statue atop a tall green column.
The news of the cat's plight spread through
the neighbourhood. It came at last to the home
of a little girl named Pixie.
"That's my cat," said Pixie. "I just know it
must be Winnie."
So off they went, Pixie and her mother, to
claim the cat. But they could not get Winnie down.
Darkness came, and Pixie and her mother had to
go home, leaving Winnie to her solitude.
Pixie began to cry. Her father came home
and was greeted with the story of Winnie's predica-
"Can't you do something?" begged Pixie's
"Please, Daddy," sobbed Pixie.
"Sure," said Pixie's father. "Just get me a
can opener."
You guessed it. Pixie's father opened a can
of tuna fish and placed it in their backyard with
the saguaro downwind. As if by magic, the cat
came home.
The next morning, Winnie the Pooh lay
sleeping in the kitchen with a look of contentment
that can be seen only on the face of a cat that has
swallowed a full can of tuna fish.

A Closer Look at the Story

1. How is this story organized?
2. Is the writer's language suited to his audi-
ence and to his topic? Give some examples. Who
is the story intended for anyway?
3. How does the writer help you picture the gi-
ant saguaro?
4. How would you change the story if you were
writing it?
5. Write out the few sentences with the sub-
ject/predicate order reorganised. How effective are
they, do you think?

Something to do: Develop a fulsome animal
tale of your own choosing using a structure
suggested by the story above. Read it to the
members of your study group, and write down
their studied comments. After you have paid
attention to their comments, re-write it neatly
and place it in a position for persons to read
and enjoy.

As vicious as the accusation, was / the

At her audience gesticulated / the speaker.


Be careful, anyhow, that you do not create frag-
ments when you try to reorganise your sentences
to create interest in what you have to say. (A sen-
tence fragment is an incomplete thought.)

two sentences written with their predicate

Souza's Birth the artist was 'ahead of his times'

Record price for Indian painting SALE of a painting by
the late Indian painter Francis Newton Souza has set a
record for an Indian work of art.
Souza's 1955 work, Birth, was sold for 1,273,250
($2,519,762) at an auction of modern South Asian art at
Christie's earlier this week.
It set a new "world auction record for the artist and for
an~y Indian modern art and contemporary work of art," ac-
cording to a Christie's official. .
Souza, who died in 2002, was born in Goa and lived in
London and New York.
Known for his bold- compositions, Souza is the only In-
dian artist to have a room dedicated to his works at Tate Brit-
The painting was with a private collection in the United


Souza was the founder of a group of influential India!
ists called the Progressive Artists Group to encourage
forms of art.
'Set up in 1947 in Mumbai, the group counted such

,ishwarya Rai and Abhishlek Bachchan alongside Abhishek's
.Ither, legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan.
Often hailed as the 'queen of Bollywood', Rai, 34, married
achchan last year, forging the ultimate Bollywood dynasty.
Born into a middle-class South Indian family, the elegant Rai
rst charmed the nation at just 21, winning Miss World in 1994.
Her acting career began three years later in the Tamil film,
uvar, but was branded a disaster, with one critic describing her
S"wooden" and another calling her an "ice-maiden."
Two years on, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, a love triangle star-

lg point, winning her the Filmfare best actress award.
The film's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali went on to cast her

CS: With respect to
parenting, many times par-
ents strive to retain control of
children who have become
adults. When should they
back off?

FC: Generally, a parent,
male or female, is a parent for
life. But a child becomes an adult
at the age of eighteen. At this
age, he or she takes on full legal
responsibility for their actions.
Parents still have the option .of
talking to these young adults, but
they have to make sure that they
do not treat them as if they are
little children. If you see that
they are going down the wrong
path, you can still talk to them;
you can still have an input; but
you need to give them that de-
gree of respect when they reach
the age of adulthood.
CS: There are broken

homes in which one parent, or
both parents, try to demonise
the other; try to poison the
minds of their children in or-
der to win their affection.
How should a parent react to
this type of tactic by his or her

FC: First of all, children suf-
fer the most in these situations.
Parents who do this put the
child in a difficult situation. The
child thinks: 'How come she, or
he, is blaming each other as the
culprit. I thought both of them
were. Who am I to believe?' This
runs through the child's mind
many times and creates confu-
sion. I, however, sometimes re-
fer to my religious beliefs to find
resolutions to such problems.
When one parent does that, he
or she is putting herself, or him-
self, up and putting the other
party down. But we are all equal
in the sight of God; we should

not judge each other bad because
of our limited vision of right and
wrong. That is the responsibil-
ity of God; that is His preroga-
tive. As the Bible says: 'Judge
not that ye not be judged.' But
yet at the same time, these prob-
lems can be resolved with com-
munication, involving both par-
ents and the children too.

CS: Despite your perception
about the large numbers of
'dead-beat dads' or 'good-for-noth-
ing dads' in our society, have you
encountered any you consider to
be role models?

FC: Yes! There are
many dads who are aware of
their role and responsibili-
ties in parenting. I wish to
commend these guys for car--
rying through with their re-
.sponsibilities. I salute them
on this occasion of Father's
Day 2008.

FC: The answer lies in the
willingness of the male to im-

Many males should be counselled

of conflict resolution because, it
is generally the case where most
males see physical violence as
the only means of resolving con-
flict within the home. There is
an unacceptably high level of do-
mestic violence and abuse be-
cause of the unwillingness, or in-
ability, of one or both partners
to sit down and talk their way
to a resolution of whatever the
problem may be.

gevity. Studies of modern
hunter-gatherers in Tanzania,
Venezuela and Eastern Para-
guay societies that offer in-
sights into how humans
evolved consistently show
that grandma is doing much of
the work.
Researchers have even
measured the muscle strength
of men and women in these
communities and weighed the
baskets and bundles carted
around by them. Often, the
scientists find, women in their
60s are as strong as women in
their 20s. "It's the women
over 40 who are carrying the
heavy loads," said Dr.
The research is the basis for
the 'grandmother hypothesis'
that may help explain why
menopause occurs. The basic
idea is that an end to a woman's
reproductive years allows her to
channel her energy and resources
into caring for her children and
grandchildren, thereby providing
her descendants with a survival

Until recently, many re-
searchers argued that meno-
pause isn't natural, and that
modern medicines simply have
increased life eatpectancy well
beyond what nature intended.
But while it's true that the av-
erage life expectancy for women
was just 40 years only a cen-
tury ago, recent studies have
found the number was skewed
by high infant mortality rates at
the time. Plenty of women
were living well past age 40, Dr.
Hawkes said. Even the Bible
recognized that women can live
well beyond their fertile years,
NAMS executive director, Dr
Wulf Utian noted.
In hainter-gatherer cul-
tures today, said Dr. Hawkes,
"women are strong and eco-
nomically productive into
their 60s....Women are not
being helped along by others.
The flow of help is going into
the other direction." (Re.

Oram ruled out for :ten days
NEW Zealand have been struck a major injury blow after Jacob Oram was ruled out for at
least ten days with a hamstring strain. He pulled out of the Tw~enty20 at Old Trafford shortly
before the toss after hurting himself in the warm-up.
He was replaced by Peter F~ulton for the Twenty20, but the
injury means he will miss the first threce ODls, starting with the
match at Chester-le-Street today. His possible return date would
be the fourth match at-The Oval on Jun7e35.
Or-am is crucial to New Zealand s one-day form, his har-d-
hitting batting providing power to the middle order while his "8
bowling can strangle the scoring. He is an in~jury-prone cricketer,
andi missed the final Test against England in Napier in March,
although managed to play throughout the r-ecent series.
They have a few options in the squad to cover for Oram.
Tim Southee has been out of the side since the first Tecst, while
Jeetan Patel provides a second spin possibility, but no one can
give the all-round balance that Oram provides.
New Zealand have been hlit by a few\ injuries on their OOA
tour. Damiel Vettori cut his spinning finger before the Test JACOBGA
series, Daniel Flynn lost two teeth after being hit byi a
bouncer in the Test at Old Trafford, and Brendon McCullum was unable to keep at T'ren

The Dutch started well and

The key to the victory was
the speed and variation of

PORT Mourant have booked
their place into the final of
the 2008 Busta Champion of
Champions knockout 50
overs first division cricket
competition despite their
semi-final encounter against
Albion Community Centre
ending on a tie.
Playing yesterday, at the
Albion Community Centre
ground, the visitors, needing
four runs for victory in the last
over with two wickets in hand,
in pursuit ofAlbion's 173 all out
mn 47.3 overs, were only able to
score three, ending on 173 all
out in exactly 50 overs.
However, despite the
scores were level, Port Mourant
will advance to the final, having
enjoyed a better run rate in the
first 15 overs.
Albion were only able to
accumulate a mere 39 in
their first 15 overs while Port
Mourant, by then, had al-
ready rattled up 54.
Port Mourant's innings was
built around brilliant half-centu-
ries from the, hard-hitting Rajiv

The left-handed Ivan ham-
mered four fours and two sixes
in a fine 71 while Perkhan hit
65, a knock that was decorated
with five fours.
Perkhan added 44 for the
first wicket in 12 overs with
Porandeo Debdyal (9) before
joining forces with Ivan in a
partnership that produced 101
for the third wicket, but once
the pair were separated in the

SALZBURG, (Reuters) -
Holders Greece were
knocked out of Euro 2008 af-
ter losing 1-0 to Russia in

in the 33rd minute when Greece
keeper Antorns Nikopolidis ran
out to try to clear the ball leav-
ing Konstantin Zyryanov free
to tap the ball into an empty
net after Sergei Semak's over-

now lost their first two matches
in the group and are eliminated
before their final game.
Spain are top on six points,
three ahead of Sweden and Rus-
sia who meet in their final group

leaving the desperate Greeks re-
lying on crosses into the area.
The Russians carved out
chance after chance and
should have added several
more goals in a 30-minute
second-half spell that left the
struggling Greece defence ;n
Pavlyuchenko's close range
effort in the 47th was saved by
Nikopolidis and the striker came
close again six minutes later
when he picked up a through
ball from Diniyar Bilyaletdinov
and raced down the left only to
see his low drive fly wide.
The Russian striker contin-
ued to wreak havoc in the
Greece defence and tried to tum
provider in the 57th with a
clever backheel to Bilyaletdinov
who fired wide.
The disappointing Greeks,
who played with three strikers,
failed to create one clear chance
in the match with captain
Angels Basinas shooting over
from close range in the 55th.
Even when coach Otto
Rehhagel freshened up his
attack with the speedy Fanis
Gekas replacing the tiring
Nikos Liberopoulos they
could find no way of breaking
down a well-drilled Russian
defence as they saw their hold
on the trophy slip away,

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -
Australian opener Simon Katich
who registered his fourth Test
century on the third day of the
Third Digicel Test in Barbados
gave credit to rookie left-arm
spinner Sulieman Benn for his
perseverance on a day when the

some pretty good fields and
he gets a bit of bounce," said
Katich who went to bed on
an unbeaten 148.
The lanky 26-year-old
Benn is playing in his first
Test on his home ground and
the second in his career after

the bat lower down the order.
In the first innings here in
Bridgetown Benn picked up the
wicket of wicketkeeper Brad
Haddin (32) via the lbw route.
And so far in the second innings
he has accounted for Michael
Hussey for 18 to have figures

work all series but that their
batsmen did not always give
them full support.
"The quicks stuck to their
job as well, they stuck to it all
series, if anything, they are
pretty disappointed with them
getting 216 yesterday," the left-
hander told journalists at the
end of the third day of at the
Kensington Oval with Australia
comfortably in charge, on 330
for 3, an overall lead of 365
with two days remaining in the
final Digicel Test of the three-
match series which Australia /
lead 1-0 after their victory in Ja-
ma~ica and draw in Antigua.
"Their bowlers have
stuck at it reasonably well
throughout the series and
would have hoped for a few
more runs," Katich reasoned.
Katich who is opening the
Australian innings in place of the
injured Mathew Hayden said

confidence that they were com-
fortably in charge.
"There were periods
(when Chris Gayle was bowl-
ing wide outside off stump)
where you felt if you didn't
take any risks, try and work
ones and two, you feel you are
on top and in control of the j
game," Katich revealed.

"The left-arm spinner

and showed potential with

five of which were maidens.

commended for their tireless

KARACHI, Pakistan
(Reuters) Pakistan fast
bowler Shoaib Akhtar had his
five-year ban for indiscipline
reduced to 18 months by the
Pakistan Cricket Board
(PCB) yesterday.
Shoaib was also fined seven
(7) million rupees (around $115
000) by a PCB appeals tribu-
'"The tribunal has taken the

decision with a clear conscience
and under no pressure from ei-
ther the board or anyone else,"
tribunal head Justice Aftab
Farrukh told a news conference,
adding that the three-member
tribunal unanimously felt the
.original punishment was too
"LWe also took into con-
sideration the past record of
Shoaib and that he had pub-

licly apologised for his
behaviour and past deeds,"
Farrukh said.
"He has promised to re-
formn himself and we have also
recommended to the board that
he should be given proper coun-
Shoaib was banned for five
years by the PCB in April for
several incidents of indiscipline
and violating the conditions of

a two-year probation.
Last year, the player was
banned for 13 matches and
fined 3.4 million rupees for
striking team mate,
Mohammad Asif with a bat in
South Africa before the
Twenty20 World Cup. He was
sent home in disgrace.
The reduced ban still means
that the 32-year-old Shoaib,
who has played 46 Tests and

138 one-day internationals, will
miss the Asia Cup and Cham-
pions Trophy being hosted by
Pakistan this year.
His lawyer Abid Hasan
Minto said the player had the
right to pursue an appeal against
the 18-month ban.
"But we will take a deci-
sion after going through the
long and detailed order of the
tribunal," Minto said.

give Aussies vice-grip

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC) Australia took a vice-grip
of the third Digicel Test against West Indies after Simon
Katich and Phil Jaques completed centuries on the third day
at Kensington Oval yesterday.
On a day in which the home team managed only three wickets,
Australia, lifted by a double-century partnership between Katich'
and Jacques, ended the day on 335~ for three and a commanding
lead of 365.
It is a position in which they hold all~ the aces to complete
a second victory in the final match of the series.
Katich, in his newly- converted role at the top of the order, oc-
cupied the crease for the entire day to close on an unbeaten 148
that has stretched seven-and-three-quarter hours. It was his second
century of the series.
Fellow left-hander Jacques made a measured 108 that
lasted five hours and the pair put on 224 for the first wicket
before the partnership was broken in the middle of the sec-
ond session.
While West Indies bowlers manfully struck to the task, they
were unable to pressure Australia to any great extent as Katich and
Jacques batted soundly against both pace and spin.
Resuming the day on 35 without loss, Australia scored at
a steady rate throughout the day, adding 128 runs in the ex-
tended two-and-a-half hour first session, another 86 between
lunch and ten and a further 81 in the final session.
Jaques was the first to his hundred which he reached 45 min-
utes after lunch with a boundary through extra-cover off left-arm
spinner Sulieman Benn.
After passing the landmark, he chased at a wide ball from fast
bowler Fidel Edwards and edged a catch to the keeper after facing
224 balls and striking nine fours.
Katich reached his century 15 minutes before tea and it
