Feb 10, 2021  Features / Columnists, – Peeping Tom

Kaieteur News – I hate to sound like V. S. Naipaul, but it is problem enough when you are a small country. Imagine, therefore, the problems that arise when you are a small, disordered society.
Guyana is a country with a small population. The small size of the society is further compounded by the ever-increasing disordered nature of the society. No matter what wealth is discovered within this small economic space, it is not going to benefit the population much, unless the disorders are ordered.

With each government, this task is becoming more difficult and two examples will suffice in explaining the dilemma which the government, and any future government, will face.    Continue reading →

He never touched the soil of the Americas yet his influence was global and it would be a dim perception to conclude that his life and message was restricted to a few continents.

His impression on the USA is indelible. President Barack Obama stated in India in 2010 that he would not have been President had it not been for Gandhi and the message he shared with America and the rest of the world.            Continue reading →

Caribbean Beat – Caribbean Airlines

This year marks the centenary of the birth of the Caribbean’s first professional novelist. There had previously been writers from the region, such as the Jamaican journalist HG de Lisser, who made money from their fiction, but Edgar Mittelholzer, born on December  16, 1909, was the earliest recorded author from the region to make a living – and a very precarious one it would turn out to be – from his pen.      Continue reading →..
