Anyway Tola bai. I didn’t ask a question. I made statement that the Africans didn’t want to work on the plantation anymore so the poor plantation owners were faced with a dilemma for an alternative to the loss of their African labor force. The Indians provided a much needed relief to the owners. If the Africans realize afterwards that made a terrible decision, they should just bear their chafe and not blame Indians for their mistakes.
But Ksazma bhai, some free slaves remained on the plantation and worked for a wage.
Their subdivision on the sugar estate was called Nig*er yard and the Indians subdivisions were called Bound Yard and Free Yard.
The indenture labourers bound by their five year contract stayed in Bound Yard and Free yard was those who finished their contract, but choose not to return to India.
Nig*er yard was not a pleasant name for Africans, but that was what the British named it. All sugar estates had Nig*er Yard, Bound yard and Free Yard. My family lived in Free Yard among the logies, once occupied by African slaves.
The animosity the African slaves felt for the Indenture labourers was due to the Indians bidding lower on job, thus reducing the wages of Africans, including the Indians.
If there was corporation and union, it would have benefitted everyone.
