Trinidadians of Indian ancestry

Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar, Indian origin Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago visited our country in January.

Amidst busy schedule she took time to pay a seemingly emotional visit to her ancestral village in Bihar.

This morning as I was reading newspapers from different countries (which is almost a regular weekend habit of mine), I came across an intertesting article about how Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar celebrated her 60th birthday on 17 April. The article illustrates as to how people of Indian origin still retain their culture and traditions. Perhaps you may like to read the article as well.
