Granger shortchanges Indian Guyanese

first_imgDear Editor,I read the media reports of the speech delivered by President David Granger at the celebration of Indian Arrival Day at Highbury last weekend.The speech included in some detail, the involvement of Indo-Guyanese immigrants in all aspects of manual, physical and structural activities at the patently noticeable exclusion of their significant involvement and contribution to the equally, if not more important, mental/intellectual/scientific/managerial and investment aspects of Guyana’s development after the abolition of slavery and introduction of immigration from India.The omission is so stark, especially having regard to the President’s personal/professional background as a historian, that I am forced to wonder if the faux pas is attributable to his ‘speech-writer’ and perhaps his Excellency did not ‘proofread’ the speech before he delivered it. I would like to think so and take this opportunity to respectfully suggest to His Excellency that he might wish to confirm this in a manner he considers appropriate.Sincerely,Nowrang Persaudlast_img
