Timely Meetingby J SS JOKHAN
Growing up among a few remaining indentured whose
Memories of early childhood awakened, begun at the formative years of the early 1940s. Bringing to life those indentured from India having volunteered for a 'promised better life' after slavery. Any lifestyle was better than they had in those villages in India. Working the sugarcane plantation some thrived.
Growing up among a few remaining indentured whose anecdotes, told in songs of memories lingering of their youths in their former homeland.
We returned to the UK after 18 years in my place of birth, lured by memories of youth. As a fly on the wall, I listened and saw cultural differences working together in Trinidad. The conundrum of the DEWALI celebration; The ailing challenger; Eastern culture meets Christian Easter celebration in the west; and the KALI worshiper explains their philosophy are few of the anecdotes. And personal observations of the interplay of science philosophy and religion in humanity.
