Should we be specifically looking for Indians or Africans to honour?
For a large part of this country's history most Indians kept away from the army, police, and other civil service jobs that may have placed them in the frontline for national service and recognition?
Should it matter that although Indians participate in steel-pan, carnival and calypso, frontline Indian spokesmen continually call these art forms degrading. Should it matter that most Indians do not play football. I suspect one day the football associations would be accused of racial discrimination as soon as people forget the history.
I make these latter points because there are many areas that Indians do not participate in that obscure other contributions they may make.
Can you help by giving us a list of Indians who have done exceptionally well in service to Trinidad and Tobago?
