‘Trinidad and Tobago’ Gained Independence This Day 55-Years Ago; August 31, 1962.

by Anura Guruge



From what I can see Google has never done a Google Doodle for this Independence Day.

‘Trinidad and Tobago’ is special to any cricket lover — hence my interest.

The list of GREATS from Trinidad and Tobago is long and storied and begins with Learie Constantine — who, alas, was way before my time. Then there is Brian Lara.

Then there is Deryck Murray, Ian Bishop, the Bravo brothers, Ravi Rampaul etc. etc.

My favorite, however, is Larry Gomes from the 1970s.

Indubitably one of my favorite artists of all time and across all genres. He was magical. In my book one of five GIANTS of the Renaissance, the other four being: Michelangelo, TitianLeonardo da Vinci and Raphael.

His paintings are so timeless and mesmerizing. What a talent?

What an age that was. All these great artist, all in Italy, more or less at the same time.

Just spare a thought. He died over 500 year ago. 500 years!
