In exploring who we are as a nation, where we want to go as a people, and how to get there, we must find a way to delve deep into our creative reservoir, to look inside ourselves.

The Burnham factor

In awarding its highest national honour, the Oliver Tambo Award, to the late President Forbes Burnham, South Africa recognises a crucial integrity of character in us as a nation.

Generating solutions

We see stormy waves kick up every so often as frustrated citizens demand justice, fair play and equal access to the corridors of power.

People  across this land go about their daily life oblivious to the shenanigans of their Members of Parliament, who this week engage each other in an exercise filled with acrimony, strife and distrust.

Signs of hope

Ways of Looking and Feeling

Hope for our future as one nation, with one destiny, stirred our hearts this week when House Speaker Raphael Trotman and former Speaker Ralph Ramkarran echoed each other in scolding their quarrelling colleagues, while calling for good conscience to govern public behaviour.

Shaping our self-image

Ways of Looking & Feeling

How could we motivate and inspire our fellow citizens to live their best, to wake up every day believing in the Guyana Dream, to tackle the task of self-development with zeal and gusto?

Independent thinkers

Inspiring people, accomplishing amazing feats, live all around us in our nation. Role models accomplishing feats of excellence inspire us, causing us to believe in ourselves and our nation.

Expecting that ‘lil raise’

Neighbourhood elections promise hope

Ways of Looking & Feeling

Electing leaders for villages, towns and the city offers Guyanese exciting prospects. Such opportunity, denied the citizen for close to 20 years, offers everyone the personal power to determine who governs their neighbourhood.

Creating a visionary Foreign Service

Ways of Looking & Feeling

High Commissioner of Guyana to Canada, Harry Narine Nawbatt, and Sattie Sawh, Consul General in Toronto, Ontario, hosted a New Year’s get-together at the Guyana Consulate office in Toronto last Friday.

Reflecting, and resolving

Ways of Looking & Feeling

Looking forward to a brand new year, and looking back at the last, we want as a nation to both resolve to make 2013 our best year yet, and reflect on 2012 with sober wisdom.

Our international profile

Official world reports continue to paint an awful picture of our homeland. We make it on the global brain-drain list for our alarming level of skills depletion stemming from our extreme migration pattern; we appear on the global index of State corruption year after year; the US State Department lists us as violators of human rights, citing us for extra-judicial killings and other problems in the law-enforcement sector.
