Caribbean

The Caribbean has it all. Year-round sun, crystal blue seas, white sand, some of the most amazing dive sites in the world, fascinating flora and fauna, vibrant music, luxury shopping and Indians! There are 13 independent countries that make up the Caribbean and each one is as different and diverse to another. From 1838 to 1917, over half a million Indians from the former British Raj were taken to thirteen mainland and island nations in the Caribbean as indentured workers to address the demand for sugar cane plantation labour following the abolition of slavery. The migrations led to a significant presence of people of Indian origin, (close to 3 million), that today call the Caribbean home. They continue to prosper in countries like Guyana, St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique and St Vincent. There are also small communities in The Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize and Dominican Republic (to name a few!). Join us as we discover, celebrate and learn more about who we have become. Our Global Indian Caribbean journey has begun.

The Charm of the St Lucia

  There is something about St Lucia, a particular Eastern Caribbean Charm. The island has admittedly terrible roads, it’s missing signs and directions, yet no matter where  you’re  heading  it’s  lush , beautiful and culturally immersive.  The capital city isn’t  overly  enticing  though  during  carnival  it  feels  as  though  all  the  energy  in  the  world  […]

Former President of Guyana Ronald Ramotar Launches scathing attack on Anti-Jaganism

It was with a great deal of sadness that I read Ramharack’s lengthy article in the “Stabroek News” of November 28, 2021 headlined “Re-imagining Cheddi Jagan: Cultural Moorings and Political Recklessness”: https://www.stabroeknews.com/2021/11/30/opinion/letters/we-have-found-other-beliefs-which-work-for-us/ The author is a well-known anti-Jaganist, one of those middle-class Indians who hates Jagan’s pro-working class politics.
