Reply to "The PPP and Guyanese Indians: Malcolm Harripaul’s masterpiece of political analysis"

i used Ravi Dev's article for the simple reason that it would be difficult for the denialist scoundrels to prolong the 'debate' given the author's 'impeccable' Hindutva pedigree

in fact, there are a number of very good (and not so good) sources on this piece of history, including Odeen Ishmael and Clem Seecharran

the key event was the Luckhoo-Wharton 1919-1920 effort freighted with the 'Indian colony" appeal 

it should be noted that there were 2 separate initiatives . . . 1919-1920 and 1923-1924 (Luckhoo-Nunan)

as i acknowledged elsewhere, this stuff is nearly a century in the past and, aside from the neo-Hindutva Guyana crowd (that includes the fellow traveling Jagdeoite tiefman crew and opportunist NEPS associates), this is not a live issue with young Indo-Guyanese today

Baseman and Seignet would prefer to shout down the truth (actually called it a "lie") because it does not serve the "sacred victimhood" narrative that is the oxygen of divide-and-rule majoritarian race politics in Guyana
