The theme of this edition of the magazine is “ Paintings on Hinduism in Trinidad and Tobago. ”

The magazine represents a collection of 34 pieces by aspiring artists, students and professionals in the country. Fifty percent (50%) of the paintings were done by children and 50% by adults.

Seventy-six percent (76%) of the artists appear to be Indians and 24% seem to be non-Indians, based on an analysis of their surnames. Fifty-three percent (53%) bear Hindi surnames, 24% carry English Other surnames, and 23% of them have Arabic last names.

This magazine has the added value of including an art critique of each painting, which makes it relevant to any discourse on contemporary culture and ethnic identity.

The “reading” of each painting highlights the visual creativity of our local artists and the appreciation of Hindu/Indian aesthetics in the Caribbean.

The reports of five surviving ex-indentured immigrant laborers are recorded verbatim to read like an epic poem.

A woman, a Madras emigrant, a Muslim, a Brahmin and a cocoa/rubber estate worker narrate the conditions of life in village India when they left, the trauma of crossing the Kala Pani (Black Water).

And the experience of adjusting to a new life among strangers under a driver and overseer on the plantations in the New World.
