Indo-Caribbean Writers

Preface

Many oblique attempts have been made to marginalize Indians in (Guyana) in terms of their contribution to the literary culture in the macro Caribbean milieu. Several times, prominent personalities have similarly made sniping remarks in the Caribbean with the same kind of snide message. In a more covert manner in the USA, whether intentional or otherwise, organizations, radio, television and colleges are portraying the Caribbean people as Blacks with only an African culture. Examples on the internet http://caribbeanvoice.com/org.htm, on television Caribbean Classroom, Caribbean Dancehall, and others.

Within the Caribbean the “others” are being constantly bombarded with cultural indignity and identity insults brought about by being declared invisible people. The perception that is inculcated is real, and denies the reality that the Caribbean is plural in make-up, having people who are Amerindians, Chinese, Portuguese, Whites, Indians and Mixed. While it is indeed true that Blacks predominate in the overall Caribbean landscape, it is however a fact that in Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad there is a majority of Indians in the population. For historical reason (that is obvious), Blacks got a head start in the education system, and eventually became the police, civil servants, teachers and professionals. But in the course of time, other peoples found niches within these spheres of activities. And this must be recognized as a matter of fact, rather than tangentially denied.

As an example, why is it that in a review by Stewart Brown in the Globe and Mail of "All Are Involved: The Art of Martin Carter" many poets, writers, and authors from the Caribbean are listed, and only one Indian (David Dabydeen) mentioned and given recognition? The others are: Aimé Césaire, Derek Walcott, Nicholas Guillen, John Agard, Kamau Brathwaite, Stewart Brown, Fred D'Aguiar, Kwame Dawes, Michael Gilkes, Wilson Harris, Roy Heath, Kendel Hippolyte, Louis James, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Eusi Kwayana, George Lamming, Ian McDonald, Mark McWatt, Mervyn Morris, Grace Nichols, Gordon Rohlehr, Andew Salkey. While these individuals are quite worthy, surely there should be at least gracious mention of the many other Caribbean personalities in literature. Are there no other Indians in the Caribbean? Is David Dabydeen the ‘token’ Indian? Does the reviewer not know of the many Indians who are well recognized and documented in the field of literature? Something is amiss here!

Thus it is that the compilation of the Indo-Caribbean writers is being motivated (as one aspect of the
Indo-Caribbean Arts & Culture
Workshop Series,
a collaboration between the Association of Artists & Writers, Inc. and The Rajkmuari Cultural Center, New York) to draw attention…. The project aims to document Indo-Caribbean poets/writers/authors, as well as work about the Indo-Caribbeans. Articles in newspapers, magazines and learned journals are not considered at this time. Obviously, these will be too numerous.

The list is not complete and will continue to be a work in progress. There are several shortcomings, namely, inaccuracy of publishers and dates of publication but these are being regularly revised.

Your input for updates are welcome.

Thank you

The Autobiography of Paras P.
Paras P. is the most correct person in Trinidad & Tobago, shown by the popularity of his Centre of Correctness. This candid autobiography illustrates how Paras' whole life has been geared to being "proper," from early days learning the Queen's English to life as the most upright of politicians. Pity that Paras never noticed the laughter and ridicule permeating all the tapes he has of his doings... Full of wit and wisdom, The Autobiography of Paras P. is a tongue-in-cheek glimpse into the life of one man who honestly believes he is the last bastion of morality in Trinidad & Tobago. (Heinemann blurb) Oxford: Heinemann, 1996.

The Dispossessed.
This first novel grew from the world of indentured sugar plantation workers. Arriving from India in 1917, their labor and the labor of future generations made their island rich but left them poor, far from home, and despised by native islanders. From the guaranteed work on the estates, the laborers were forced to move on, to survive in a hostile world not knowing where the next day's bread would come from. This is the story of their lives, their resilience and their ultimate survival. (Publisher's blurb) Oxford: Heinemann, 1992.

Racism bedevils most societies in the world today. The book explores the Marxist perspective in the Capitalist mode of production and the role of the Church in the development of Racial Ideology in Trinidad. The methodology used provides an example for the study of racial ideology in other countries of the world.

This is the story of Ganesh Ramsumair's success: of how, if he had not been so unappreciated as a teacher he would never become a masseur; of how, if he had not lacked talent as an ordinary masseur he would never have blossomed into a mystic one.
