Hungry people, angry people Apr 27, 2020
My younger brother Farouk caught me unawares one evening last week when he telephoned me saying, "The PM used the 'F' word today!" "What?" I asked in shock, thinking that either Prime Minister Keith Rowley or Farouk was going off.
Assessing the leader Apr 21, 2020
When a nation wages war, and when that war is just, it is the duty of every able-bodied citizen to support his or her country, each according to his ability.
Hooked on foreign foods Apr 19, 2020
Large mobs of presumably hungry consumers virtually laid siege to fast-foods restaurants across the country last Monday evening after Prime Minister Keith Rowley announced that all restaurants and retail food services will be closed for business until the end of this month.
After crisis food rationing? April 6, 2020
When we will have overcome the COVID-19 multi-pronged attack on Trinidad and Tobago, we will face associated problems ranging from the economy under severe stress such as it has never been before, with unemployment at a crisis level, disruption of the education system leaving all stakeholders confused, and possible shortage of foods.
Best of times, worst of times March 29, 2020
In time to come, when future generations write about us, about our behaviour during the great war against COVID-19, they may well resort to the Charles Dickens' classic, A Tale of Two Cities, which was set in a tumultuous period in European and world history, 1775-1792.

Of coincidences and conspiracies March 22, 2020
I admit that it took me some time to come to terms with the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus. When the highly contagious bug first struck in China late last year, I followed its development with more curiosity than concern.
Battling COVID-19 March 16, 2020
I suppose it's human nature to panic and go into the survival mode if there is a threat to life, especially when one's family might be at risk, however remote the chances of someone dying from the COVID-19 virus may be.
An incomplete revolution March 2, 2020
Fifty years after the Black Power Revolution shook Trinidad and Tobago's foundation, many people, mostly older folks, are trying to quantify what benefits, if any, were derived from those tumultuous events.
Kaiso 'til yuh puke February 25, 2020
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of many calypsoes I heard during the first half of the Calypso Monarch finals last Thursday night. My self-regulated sleeping hours did not permit me to take in the second half, which I'm sure was better.
Pan Potential February 17, 2020
As I savour some of the best offerings from this year's Carnival from the comfort and safety of my home, I cannot help but think of the thousands of performers and revellers out there who, even as they immerse themselves in the gaiety of the festival, must ponder the possibilities that they might become victims of some criminal act before the day or night is over.
Pan Potential February 10, 2020
The recent announcement that the T&T Securities and Exchange Commission and Bourse Securities, Hassan Rahaman and Imtiaz Rahaman have reached an agreement whereby the latter three parties will pay the SEC $2.8 million.
Robbing Hoods February 3, 2020

Focus on one war, fellas January 21, 2020
As the heavily armed hardcore criminals consolidate their murderous stranglehold on our country, striking with seeming impunity anytime, anywhere they choose to, the powers-that-be go into the panic mode and respond with fusillades of "gobar" rather than superior strategy and firepower.
Amen, Brother Gregory January 14, 2020
If we think that the Trinidad and Tobago economy is in for another rough ride this year, possibly rougher than what we experienced over the past five years, we should read some of the grim global economic outlooks projected by international agencies such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs et al for almost every country in the world.
Simple things that count January 14, 2020
No major infrastructural project exposes the huge, costly gap, both in time and money, between the decision to undertake critical public works projects and their implementation and delivery to the populace than the extension of the Solomon Hochoy Highway from San Fernando to Point Fortin.
