Q:Your Excellency, most diplo-
mats, especially heads of
missions, are briefed before embarking
on their posting. What were you told
A:(Crossed legs, seated on his
couch at his Victoria Avenue,
Port-of-Spain, office on Thursday
afternoon) What they told me was that
it is a wonderful place, it is a country
that is most important in the Caribbean
region, a country that was described
as a fusion of ethnicities, and this is
what I found when I came here.
If we should get to the hard news
first, were you told about our crime
No. Not at all. It was not told to me
there, but I discovered a little bit after
I came here that there were cases of
New Indian High Commissioner:
T&T Govt, NGOs' task is to...
murders, robberies, but these things
do happen in all countries (frowning)
around the world. I was told that the
Government is trying very hard to con-
trol the crimes and the rate was com-
paratively down, I was told yesterday.
I think it is very important for the coun-
try s prosperity for the crime rate not
to be very high.
Is it your view, sir, that India has
anything to offer us by way of curbing
our crime rate?
You see, if you look at India, we
would say we have one of the lowest
crime rates in the world per capita. We
are a country of 1.2 billion people, we
have crimes, I don t deny that, but very
few when it comes to where people are
actually killed or murdered. There are
some pick pockets and stabbings which
are happening in each big city of the
world but in terms of per capita they
are much lower. This really goes to the
Indian ethos which says we have a the-
ory of karma that you will reap the
harvest of what you do, so people don t
want to do too many bad things. If they
do, they will have to reap the harvest
the next time around.
Do you believe, Your Excellency,
that we are reaping our karma now
in terms of the crime situation?
I am sure some people here believe
in karma, but the ethos of this country
has evolved from the fusion of various
cultures and ethnic groups, so it is not

Engage, convert criminals
India can learn a lot from how T&T's fusion of
ethnicities and religions work so beautifully.
So said India's newly-appointed high commissioner to
Port-of-Spain, HIS EXCELLENCY GAURI SHANKAR
GUPTA, a career diplomat who has served in several
The diplomat, an author in his own right, also said
T&T's crime situation was not unique, even though India
had perhaps the lowest per capita crime rate in the

His Excellency Gauri Shankar Gupta.
