  • tags: no_tag

    • Various social, cultural and religious functions Sunday marked the 165th Indian Arrival Day, the day when 238 people first came here from India to work on the plantations, with Trinidad and Tobago's new Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar calling it a journey that has taken 'us all centuries to arrive at'.

      She said that observance of the Indian Arrival Day must be an active reaffirmation of the government's commitment to ensure that every creed and race found an equal place. To mark the occasion, she has renamed the Ministry of Arts and Culture as the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism.
