India takes the lead

Haifeng Su, in photo, one of Guyana’s successful chess players at the conclusion of round six of the 42nd Chess Olympiad in Azerbaijan. There are five rounds yet to be played in the competition. Su, playing board No 4, scored victories against opponents from Guatemala and Fiji, and achieved draws with representatives from Guernsey and Malta. Taffin Khan, playing board two, also garnered 3 points for Guyana with two wins and two draws (a win = 1 point; a draw = 1/2 point; a loss = 0 point). Guyana played Bermuda on Friday in its 7th round match.

Following the conclusion of round six of the 42nd Chess Olympiad currently in progress in Baku, Azerbaijan, India’s men have taken the lead ahead of such behemoths as Russia, the US, China, Ukraine and the Netherlands.

Over 4 000 years old, the famous Epic of Gilgamesh is considered the earliest surviving great work of literature.

Disillusionment pervades the political landscape

In opposition, APNU and the AFC were vehemently condemnatory of PPP/C corruption, incompetence, undemocratic behaviour, etc. If anyone had then told me that less than two years into the life of an APNU+AFC government, similar-type perceptions of it would have reached the stage where even some of its staunchest supporters are shaking their heads in wonderment, I would have listened but not believed.
