Photos in Arrival Day exhibition had no names

Dear Editor,

At the Arrival Day Exhibition at the National Museum, there is a display of black and white photographs depicting the East Indians who came and/or their descendants. Two of the photographs on display are photos of two teachers who were formerly attached to the Indian Cultural Centre – Pandit Charan Girdhar Chand, dance teacher and Pandit Misra, tabla teacher. Both were Indian nationals who came to teach at the Indian Cultural Centre during the late 1970s and early 1980s and they both went back to their homeland when their contracts were finished.

This display is the work of the Library of the University of Guyana. None of the photographs had any names.

Yours faithfully,
N Sahadeo
