I refer to Dr Devanand Bhagwan’s letter published in the April 28, 2022 edition of the Kaieteur News: under the caption “Indians deserve a month to celebrate their history”.
I have advocated that all our races are entitled to equal treatment at all levels of our society since we are victims of enslavement, indenture and colonialism. I endorse and support Dr Bhagwan’s call for the Indian community to be allowed one month to celebrate their history and contributions to the nation’s development. This fair, and reasonable request, should be supported by all Guyanese. Giving the Indian community “parity” with Africans and the Indigenous community demonstrates our collective commitment to support equality and general equivalence in national affairs.
Dr. Devanand Bhagwan’s initiative will contribute to national wholeness, and it has my unreserved support.
