"For what it's worth ... it's never too late, or in my case
too early, to be whoever you want to be. There's no time
limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay
the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make
the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it.
--- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
A Chutney artiste has come under heavy fire
for desecrating the grounds of a world-famous
Hindu temple in Carapichaima by filming a
music video for his 2017 Chutney song on the
compound without permission.
Zeba Piquie Idiot, u cudn't find anywhere to
do yuh ting bai? I know that's a rubbish move.
Susanna Nicole I hope when they see our local
artists go India and other countries and high-
light other people's landscape, they shut their
mouth and don't ask why they couldn't show
Jason Rambocas First of all, he went without
permission in this temple.... I see some stupid
comments about "I don't see the big deal." I am
a Hindu and for someone to go in a temple and
sing "wine yuh hips" in front all the murti they
have to be mad. It's jus a form of disrespect.
Would u go in a church and sing bend ova?
Nizam Mohammed That's no chutney singer,
didn't hear anything that sounded like chutney
in that song.
Ryan Singhzz He needs to give his life to God
an go into a church instead.
Mamoo Jath Trinis need to learn to appreciate
and not hate! What was disrespectful here?
Half ah allyuh have jhandi in allyuh yard and
drinking rum n playing kartel everyday.
Gail Huggins So nobody saw him filming on the
compound n stopped him... Bro, next time go in
a public place where u don't need permission,
like on d wharf. LOL
Ameir Shaheed Well, considering local chutney
artists use Bollywood melodies probably with-
out permission, this shouldn't be a big deal....
From what I understand here is that he didn't
ask permission, but what if he did?
Ria Lutchman Highly disrespectful!
Tashy Tash He singing bout roll yuh hips, what
possess him to go in a temple to sing that?
What relevance that song have with a temple?
Something seriously wrong with him!
Champa Chameli Well he want fame, make
him popular for his stupidness. The same way
a church, mosque or a temple is scared to all
religious. There is time and place for everything.
Respect other people's beliefs.
Nandini Bissessar If he wanted to shoot a vid-
eo by a temple he shud have sung a religious
song. This video shud hav been flimed in a bar.
President's House employees
in conflict of interest will be fired
If any employee at the Office of the President
is found to be engaged in a conflict of interest
situation, he/she will be displaced.
Josh Tajoo Wondering if the same applies to
members of the Cabinet---both sides.
Gail Huggins U tel dem, Mr Powers!
Narry Singh Why don't they replace those min-
isters whose wives are getting contracts? Isn't
that a conflict of interest?
RBC: Strategic plan
was shared with staff
RBC Royal Bank of T&T Ltd confirmed yes-
terday that it has offered Voluntary Separa-
tion or VSEP and Voluntary Early Retirement
programmes to specific groups of employees
within its T&T operation.
Margaret Kelly This is a wonderful package to
offer to T&T, and I hope the staff intend to make
use to the offer, and I also hope others follow.
Michele Sayers Of course it will be restructured
to align with its strategic management plan...
do the research...no job is permanent or long-
term anymore so fix y'all business for change.
Shahinaz Hosein They do this when ppl have
too much seniority, then hire less qualified ppl
to do the same job. This is a pattern. After
you give 20 years + they will say take some
pittance and go. So you have to start a career
all over again.
He was coaxed into killing
Relatives of an 18-year-old Morvant teen who is
now on the run from the police after stabbing a
relative to death on Tuesday afternoon, say he
may have been egged on by peers to retaliate
violently towards his sibling.
Gail Huggins He's real dumb to allow himself
to b coaxed into killing somebody. Well let d
same person coax him into surrendering!
Crystal Duffriend "He will surrender next
week"? Ok then, take your time and make sure
and eat some good fast food, have a tan, the
police will wait.
Anarki Hatake O look, a new way to say he
was a good boy---"He is a church boy."
Debra Lopez Is this a joke? He is going to sur-
render next week? So what about today or
tomorrow? Where is he going a boat ride or
Erica Joseph He should have studied he have
a young baby before he took somebody else's
life. Young people, please think before you act,
it ent worth it. This is so sad.
Amber Grace A lesson to all about "friends."
Reshma K Phillip He doesn't have a mind of
his own? That's what's wrong with the youths
today, they don't think.
