Truely the father of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana deserves such a site. However I think you should add Dr.Jagan's most famous quote " think globaly and act locally. The life of the Greatest Son of our Soil will forever live on in my mind. His works will be remembered and His leadership qualities will be strived for. Michael Lackna another son of the soil.

I came here to pay homage to one of the World's great men. Great in that, he never wanted to have his name on a weapon of mass destruction, or be a barrier between two warring sides who were close to reaching an agreement between themselves. Rest easy, brother.

This web site is doing a great job, in showing the world what the man Cheddi Jagan stood for through his life. He has been a tireless fighter for peace, freedom and democracy, not only in his homeland, but wherever there is injustice, such as South Africa. He will long be remembered for his struggle, the fruits that we are now seeing around the world. Keep up the good work with his web site.

The Cheddi Jagan web site is a gem. Thank you for sharing the life and times of Comrades Cheddi and Janet with the whole world. I am a Christian minister, a socialist and a former member of the House of Representatives from the State of South Dakota. I am the host of the SHARON GOSPEL HOUR aired throughout the Caribbean and heard for many years over GBS-Guyana. We lived in Antigua for many years. My wife is a Trinidadian. One of our children was born in Dominica, another in Antigua and the other in Canada. We are a truly international family. The legacy of Dr. Jagan and Comrade Janet is a great inspiration to me personally. My first contact with him was in Guyana during the '70s. His/their dedication to the struggle for a new and better day for all peoples has earned my deepest respect and admiration. Long live the great peoples of Guyana. Much love. Rev. Terry Miller, Canada.(sharongospel@hotmail.com)

I would like to commend Mrs Nadira Jagan- Brancier for the excellent work in educating people of Guyana about the great man that once led this country to freedom. It is so unfair to us " the People" that we are still living in a society where FEAR and TERROR is still haunting us. I sometimes ask myself is there a place in the World for people who live by the rules.

I remember, as an adolescent living in Wakenaam in the 1960's, the many public meetings which were addressed by the FATHER of the nation, with his right hand pointing in the air and the microphone in his left hand, under the light of the petromax gas lamps, HE confidently predicted,'South Africa will be free,Zimbabwe will be free''. This great leader was a true internationalist, a man with vision. HE is my HERO. HE has influenced my political thinking in a positive way. HE will always be remembered. Thanks for this web site.

Dr. Jagan has indeed made a very great contribution to the Guyanese people. Yet some fail to acknowledge this, simply because they are brain washed by one who seeks for power and power alone. Put all of that aside and Dr. Jagan, a grass root man, will live on in hearts and minds of fair minded people.

Congratulations on your website, which keeps alive the philosophy and achievements of Dr Cheddi Jagan and Janet Jagan. He was a great humanitarian and a man of vision. Your site is a great resource for anyone (like me) who wishes to know more about a man who we heard of, but knew little enough of, during the liberation and anti-racial campaigns of the 70s and 80s. It also gives Brits reason to be ashamed of some of our governments' actions in the past - as if we needed more! Best wishes and every success for the future. Ruari McCallion (UK)

Your website brought back fond memories of my childhood,in the early 60's,when during a protracted strike no petrol was to be had,and Mrs.Jagan drove me every morning to Queens College,until the situation improved. The Jagans were family friends during my father's posting in Georgetown 1961-1964.

I recently visited your location and was quite impressed of all collections for our great hero. A suitable environment to inspire anyone who has the ego to achieve good leadership skills. I don't think we have anyone in Guyana and in the Carribbean to match the works of Cheddie Jagan.

Although he became president in 1992, he never changed his desk. What a great leader, always contended. God Bless our country and I do hope this institution will be a living proof what it takes to keep democracy alive.

Cheddi Jagan was one of my heroes as a youngster growing up in Guyana. His heroism in the face of tremendous odds and his obvious honesty and sincerity in his fight for Guyana's freedom are traits which we should all want to emulate in our own lives. He was a true son of the soil and remained to the end a man who never forgot his origins. Rest in peace you true and proven champion of Guyana. You will always hold a treasured place in our country's history.

I am happy to see information on our historical leaders, I grew up knowing more about the leaders of the rest of the world. I often think about how great it could have been if our two founding fathers had worked together to built. I think it their memory, we should unite and make their original dream come true.

An educational site which lends deep insight into the life and times of our dear leader. A suggestion: We all know where Chelsea Clinton is and what she's working on and doing. The first daughter is an inevitable part of the former president's identity. It would be great if the Guyanese community can be provided the same insight into the lives of Dr. Jagan's children.

Dear Research Centre,

I am very impressed and I think your web site is a wonderful memorial to a truly remarkable and very human, gentle man. I am a professor at the University of Central Florida, and about ten years ago Mr. and Mrs. Jagan came to visit and Mr. Jagan gave one of the most inspiring lectures on Third World development that I have ever heard. I've never forgotten him. I was saddened when he died.

All my best wishes on your work and for the betterment of your country.

Most Sincerely, Waltraud Q. Morales Department of Political Science University of Central Florida

There are so many things i remembered as a young man growing up in the era of premier Dr C Jagan. We had a beautiful country a system that was not too perfect but we had love for each other, regardless of our race colour or creed. I will never forget the sacrifices and struggle that Dr Jagan had to face and yet his people , the guyanese people turn against him. They were too blind to see so far ahead in the future and fail to see the beautiful guyana he had in his plan. I'm in tears to say i will never live to see the beautiful country we once knew, we can only hope for our children and grand children to make this country what it was over 40 to 50 years ago. god bless Dr. Cheddi Jagan.

'The Tribute to Cheddi Jagan' Page was educational. My father studied with Cheddi Jagan and his brother Derek in the younger days, so it was nice to complete the picture and have a clearer understanding in my mind, to how my parents lived and were brought up.

Thank you for publishing my poem of 13.07.94 In addition, a tribute TO OUR LATE Dr. CHEDDI JAGAN Ge quotation from Rev. Surujlall Motilall from Holland " Only those who lost their's can say, how aching it is to encounter such a day. Never the less, Oh God ! such is life for our leader to die and leave us alone to strife" His image, will always be embedded whitin me, although he was called away by the Almighty Oh God, what a disheartening day to remember when our father had gone and leave us to wonder. Indeed, its' a real heartache to tell, that we have to bid our leader a farewell. Our father of our nation has gone, he has gone forever and for ever from this world I pray you Oh God!, may you keep his departed soul good. From Rev. Surujlall Motilall of the Netherlands 05.01.04

I was lucky to know and associate with a great man by the name Dr.Cheddi Jagan D.D.S. He used to stay at our home in Hampton Court Essequibo Coast during his days in opposition. I admire him for his gently smile and hug he used to give me. He inspired me to study Dentistry. I am now a Dentex. His life and works will live in me and our family forever. He had loved fruits and my mom would send me around the village to purchase all different kinds of fruit for Cde.Cheddi as he was popularly called. I also remember he loves to exercise in the mornings. He wakes up very early and does his stuff,exercise,shave,chat.listen news(BBC) etc. Andrieko Basir

Dear Nadira,

 Re: The Documentary on your mother – GUYANA’S THUNDER
 I was tremendously impressed with your presentation on your parents, and especially about your Mom. She is an outstanding lady of courage, faithfulness, and determination. Her leadership evidenced such qualities.

 The documentary was a masterpiece. It gave us an opportunity to see and assess the invaluable contributions of your parents, especially, the strong leadership of your Mom who took the torch and mantle of  responsibility (the legacy of your father), and carried on, in such a relentless way.

Her humility was seen as an impressive characteristic of her strength behind your Dad, and her aggressive silence, in her attitude towards her goals, clearly depicted such gentility. She is truly, a NATURALIZED GUYANESE!

 My wife and I were greatly honoured to see this film, and we are indebted to Rhyad Hamid for this privilege.

 I knew your Dad, personally. We spoke on the same platform, for over three years, on India’s Independence Day. I never met your Mom, but had seen her in action on several occasions. She is a real CHAMPION!

 Thanks, Nadira, for such a moving and informative documentation of your Dad and Mom.

I visited Guyana as a young exchange participant some 25 years ago, and at that time I purchased a copy of Cheddi Jagan's "The West on Trial," but I never read the book. Nowadays I teach political philosophy, and recently I have been thinking about Frantz Fanon's incredible book, "The Wretched of the Earth," which carried my mind back to the few things I had picked up over the years about Guyana's struggles against colonialism. I decided to find my copy of "The West on Trial" and read it. I am now more than halfway through it, and I have to say I am impressed. Cheddi Jagan writes very clearly and factually, without rhetoric or flourish, letting his presentation of the record speak for itself; in so doing, the events of his life and the events of the nation come alive, bringing the reader to the very heart of Guyana and its struggles. One can only admire Jagan's apparent calm resolve and determination - in the face of so many incredible obstacles - to work for the betterment of the Guyanese people. Thanks for the website. The information and the photographs provided on it have helped me to answer some questions and to put faces to names - a very useful site.

I have jus read a dedication to the contribution of Dr. Jagan had made to the people and the country of Guyana. I am from Trinidada and therefore have heard his dedication to his country. from this i ahve realised that he was really dedicated to his people the east indians of guyana and to an extension the est indians of the caribbean.

I greatly appreciate reading your site with its many links. My interest was sparked by viewing the film Thunder in Guyana, on PBS. I knew that Cheddi Jagan was a great man who had struggled to win the independence of his nation and had seen many of his hopes for his nation dashed by the British and later by CIA's covert operations. I had been thrilled when he was finally elected in '92 and hoped that his election would finally bring to life some of the promise of Guyana. I remember being shocked to hear of his death a few years later and thinking that it was sad that he had just not had enough time to fulfill all the promise that had been represented by his election. The news here in the US seldom covers Guyana so I had only been dimly aware of subsequent events. It was wonderful to watch the independent film Thunder in Guyana to see the story of Janet Jagan and her role along with that of her husband in creating an independent Guyana. I hope to keep up with the news on Guyana more in the future. In Solidarity, Babette Grunow

I had the good fortune,in the mid sixties, of bumping into this giant of a man. As a yougster in those days, little boys were meant to be seen and not heard from thus I followed the crowds quietly just waiting to hear him speak. He played his part well and Im sure he was a superb Dad and Husband.....I can still hear him say "we need men and women with "backbone" and "intestinal fortitude to be able to withstand the opposing forces and to forge ahead with the vision of the PPP....

Dear Ms. Nadira ji, Hi! Namaste!! My best regards to you!! I am Anjani Kumar Tiwari, an Indian male, 28-year-old.I have visited the webpage www.jagan.org and I am very much thrilled to know that you are doing a great and marvellous job. I was born in India but I know a lot about the people of Indian origin, who were migrated from India. The friends and relatives of my ancestors were captured in the jungles and on the plains of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in India, captured as you capture wild beasts, torn from their homes and their kindred, loaded into slave ships, packed like sardines in a box, half of them dying on the ocean passage; some jumping into the sea in their frenzy, when they had a chance to choose death in place of slavery. They were captured and brought there in South America. Their children are very rich, modern and progressive now. The law has made them equal and I am really proud of world leaders like the late Chhedi Jagan. I am an ardent admirer of the late Chhedi Jagan and I salute his works and memories. The world-class leaders like the Father of Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi and Mr. Chhedi Jagan lives in our hearts. My warm regards to his family-members and all Guyanese people. Guyana fascinates me too much and I would love to visit this beautiful country one day. I am a student of University of Delhi and I can be contacted on my cellphone number +91 9891438539 and you can write to me a few sentences at my e-mail ID: aktiwaridu@yahoo.com With warmest regards & best compliments, Anjani Kumar Tiwari, E-mail: aktiwaridu@yahoo.com Address: Anjani Kumar Tiwari, New Chandmari, Motihari-845401, Bihar, India.

I like to know about Guyana`s politcal past and Dr. Cheddie's history is the best to be reviewed. And, I like to know about 1930-1945, I'm kinda obsessed about that era, so I read anything that I come across about the the Great Depression and the war, his veiws about poverty during those times. And it is very intresting to know about how Cheddie and Janet strugled with the P.P.P/C through British rule, P.N.C's dictatorship and the blind eye America seemed to play for a while & America's mistaken thrust of the P.N.C. I have full admiration of any site about Cheddie's life. Dimitri Karmal Ali

I grew up in Detroit and lived on Humphrey Street. A young man, his first name escapes me, whose last name was Rosenberg used to come to our neighborhood quite often to participate in our various games. Could this be Janet Jagan's brother, and if so I remember her well from Durfee Junior High. My email address: greenwald13@yahoo.com Herbert I. Greenwald Ed.D.

Hi Nadira,

Thank you for having the wisdom to maintain a web site in honor of one of the most significant people of the modern age. Cheddi, his wife, his family, his friends, and the supporters he inspired are truly heroic, visionary  people who lived remarkable lives that exemplify what it means to be fully human.

Nadira, it is amazing how Cheddi's presence got through the morass of post-war hysteria. In those years, I lived in a suburb of Washington, DC and if you believed the "news", you would have thought that Cheddi was the most powerful man
in the world because his name was in every world news report. The reporters never took time to explain what was happening in your country or even to give a full profile of Mr. Jagan. It was only distorted nonsense report after  report of Cheddi Jagan this and Cheddi Jagan that. Having only network news media to inform them, Americans could not possibly understand anything coherent about what life in Cheddi's world was all about. But even a child like me knew that there was someone named Cheddi Jagan that was "doing things."

It is a tribute to his wisdom that in the middle of such startling ignorance, Cheddi Jagan stood up and lived a life devoted to positive and productive change for people who were supposed to be "worth less." His wife is equally astonishing - gosh, the world was so admirably graced by those two souls.

Nadira, it is our turn now. I just want you to know that there is one more Black person who rejects racial madness and embraces humanism. We certainly need social and economic change, but to do so, people have to recover from hate,
denounce hate, and live in a way that accepts and appreciates diversity of opinion and culture. Realizing the Oneness of humanity is the first step...living as one is the necessary thing that gives quality to all that we intend and to all that we accomplish. We just need to cooperate and we will get satisfying results.

Hate is the true enemy of humankind. It is the destructive monster that prevents us from realizing the goals of peace and prosperity that we strive for. I know I am saying stuff that you already know. I just want you to know that your ideas are
still as significant and worthwhile as when you first had the courage to accept them.

Thank you for giving the world an opportunity to consider something important.
Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Michael

Great website , heres my bit for the Man: CHEDDI JAGAN  Born in Port Mourant on a sugar plantation He daily witnessed Guyana's exploitation He saw hardship and knew there was only one cure And Cheddi promised to fight oppression for sure He fought against the plantation owners Championing the cause of the sugar-workers The gov't. of the day could not understand For he was a force, a tiger in their hand In those days Imperialism was in And Social Social/Marxism was a sin You bow to Uncle Sam and dance to his tune Or you'd pass away like the last full moon The people came last and politics came first But this jingoism didn’t quench his thirst He stood up and was counted though he was alone In Moscow, his friends had problems of their own Guyanese celebrated raising the Indian jhanda As he watched, admired and even visited India When in 1947 India became independent To Nehru and Ghandi good wishes he sent Then later Ghana got independence too And all Guyanese dressed in every hue Joined with their brothers of Ghana And celebrated with Kwame Nkrumah This did not deter him, he stuck to his belief And was forced to be the opposition to a thief As bullets replaced ballots in every succession As Guyana was repeatedly raped in every election All his pleas fell on deaf ears Especially to the political seers He went to the United Nation and lamented But the US backed body was undaunted The British changed first past the post To prevent the PPP from getting the most They did this with the sole devious intention By switching to proportional representation The result was no party got a majority The British way of getting rid of the PPP Burnham and D’Aguiar formed a coalition Making way for Burnham’s Guyanization The registration by the Shoup Company Made utter sheer mockery of democracy Padded with the dead, hanged, even the fictitious Which the same British press called "ridiculous" In England the press had a field day When Granada TV did their expose` Airing '”The Trails of the Vanishing Voter” And "The Making of a Prime Minister" The whole West knew of that widespread scam But they prefer to put their money on Burnham The Indians overseas were denied their right The wholesale rigging was too much to fight Rubber bands played a big roll in elections They were used in the PNC stronghold sections To wrap bundles of votes i.e. the PNC’s share And ballot boxes were tampered without fear Desmond Hoyt, the architect on the commission He became President with Burnham's extinction Since 1992 there was never a fair and free election Only fear, fraud, disgust and wholesale corruption That was the foundation of the PNC Gov’t. abuse What do you expect such garbage would produce? For 28 years they ruled with an iron fist And did every bleddy thing wrong on the list Cheddi Jagan did all he humanly could But it was if he was preaching to wood They rebuked him and after 28 years The good doctor still showed he cares Like the others who crossed the floor in stealth He could have partook in the country's wealth Call it quits and left like the others But he stuck to his guns and his brothers But behind every great man There is always a good woman And we can't and should never forget His strong and faithful wife Janet Like Nehru and Ghandi of India He also had big dreams for Guyana But his reign was aborted by a conspiracy of silence Though like Rev. King he too preached non-violence To clean up the corruption and debt is a huge task To do it overnight in a few years we can never ask Wholesale nepotism and corruption ’PNC made’ To wipe off the stench it would take a decade But there is a cool new breeze blowing With many changes for better forthcoming The winds of change are here at last But we should never forget the past We have to put our shoulders to the wheel We have to work like one people with one keel Let no "divide and rule" come between us again Strive for real independence, let sanity reign Jagan never succumbed or relent Even with his life almost spent He fought his foes with his bare hands And never groveled to their demands He's no ordinary man, he dreamt in his own way Like the Rev.Martin Luther King, he hoped one day The people of Guyana would rise up peacefully Become one people, one nation, with one destiny.

One can only HOPE that the future generation tread the path of this GREAT  HUMAN BEING: DR. CHEDDI BHARAT JAGAN.


 

 

LONG LIVE HIS PRINCIPLES!! LONG LIVE THE P.P.P.!!
Ms Khrishna Gossai.


 

JAGAN, GANDHI, NEHRU AND GOD
During the fight for India’s independence, Gandhi and Nehru said these words: Gandhi said:
 

(1)   The English `have taken away our money from year to year. The most important posts are reserved for them. We are kept in a state of slavery. They behave insolently towards us and disregard our feelings.
 

(2)  Formerly men worked in the open air as much as they liked. Now thousands of work men meet together and for the sake of maintenance, they work in factories and mines for the millionaires. Their condition is worse than that of the beast.
 

(3) Women who should be queen of the household are working in the streets or slave away in factories.
 

(4) I have no objection in you (the English) remaining in my country; but although you are the ruler you will have to remain as servants of the people. It is not we who have to do as you wish but it is you who has to do as we wish. You may keep the riches that you have drained from this land but you may not drain riches henceforth.
 

Nehru said:
 

(1) Socialism is an alternative to imperialist exploitation. Capitalism leads to the exploitation of one man by another, one group by another and one country by another. In order to secure mass support for the struggle for independence we must clearly lay down an economic program for the mass with socialism as its ideal.
 

(2)   For whatever is the fault of communism, it is at least not hypocritical and not imperialist.
 

Gandhi was called the Mahatma (the great soul) and Nehru was called the freedom fighter.
 

Rabindranauth Tagore said this about Nehru: “A solider whose banner is the banner of the exploited and a patriot whose humanity and vision are not obstructed by the barrier of the land and its past and has offered India two gifts, the gift to live bravely and the gift to think intelligently”
 

In Guyana although Dr. Jagan’s vision and thinking were the same as Gandhi’s and Nehru’s, he was called a communist, an atheist and a racist, and he and his wife were labeled the nastiest things that one could find in the dictionary.
 

Were these two people all that bad?
 

According to the Aquarian gospel, Jesus astonished his teachers with his clever and profound answer and incurred the anger of the Brahmans by his open criticism.
 

Unlike Jesus who had to run out of India, Jagan, Gandhi and Nehru were sent to jail because they angered the British.
 

Jesus said in the Bible that it is not by shouting “Lord, Lord” that one shall enter the kingdom of heaven but that it is by one’s deeds and actions that one shall do so. In the Gita, Lord Krishna said that when you serve humanity you serve me.
 

Dr. Jagan and his wife throughout their lives stood side by side with the Guyanese people. They helped them to fight for their freedom, independence, civil liberties and democracy without thinking of themselves. They were never tired of fighting for this just cause.
 

Gandhi said that if you are tired it only betrays your impatience. Bishma said in the Mahabharata that wealth generated must only be used for the good of mankind. The Bible said that the love of money is evil.
 

Dr. Jagan never strived for personal wealth. He never had a foreign bank account like some leaders. He was offered millions to stop fighting for the poor and he refused it. He was a simple man and he loved the simple things in life and the people. The money that the country generated and the money that he borrowed were used for the development of the people. There is no other leader and party in this world that I know of that has done as much for its people in such a short time and with so little money.
 

One journalist told Dr. Jagan that he doesn’t know of any other leader in the world who takes his lunch with him to work.
 

Mrs. Jagan stood tall as a wife to Dr. Jagan.
 

In the Ramayana it is stated that a mother, father and brother bestow only limited joy. A husband, however, bestows unlimited joy.
 

Vile is the woman who refuses to serve her husband. A woman who treats her husband with disrespect even though he is old, sick, dull headed, blind, deaf, wrathful, or most wretched, shall suffer various torments in hell. A devotion of body, speech and mind to her Lord’s (husband) feet is the only duty, sacred vow and penance of a woman.
 

Mrs. Jagan, after her marriage, never thought at anytime of going back to her parents in the USA. When her father was sick, the British did not allow her to go to see him. She went after her father had died.
 

Like mother Sati in the Ramayana, Mrs. Jagan stood next to her husband in the good and bad times. Mother Sati spends fourteen years in the wilderness with her husband while Mrs. Jagan spends twenty eight years out of the government with her husband. Although they knew that their lives were not safe they continued to fight for the people. Like Lord Rama whom people loved to see and who was the people’s only hope although he was not the king, Dr. Jagan was flocked by people whenever he went anywhere. They loved to hear him speak, and he was their only hope.
 

Mrs.Jagan treated her husband with all respect and even though he is dead she still carries the torch for her husband. She did not leave her husband’s work to be with his son whose ideas are different from theirs.
 

Now even after his death we see the members of ROAR are trying to discredit Mrs.Jagan. Their new book is making Rai the hero and Dr. Jagan the villain.
 

In the Gita it is said that the intellect is determined and directed towards one ideal where as the intellect of the undecided wonders in all directions after innumerable aims.
 

They claim that Dr. Jagan did not know about the Indian culture.
 

I wonder how many Indians at that time and even now know anything about the Indian culture. I would be glad if one of them could tell us about Indian culture.
 

Let us agree that Dr. Jagan did not know about Indian culture.
 

Was culture the issue?
 

No.
 

The Guyanese people did not have a cultural problem but a bread and butter problem. Their lives were that of semi slavery. The money that most people worked for was not enough to feed their families. Most families’ lived in a one bedroom house, so there was no privacy. These are just a few of the problems.
 

Hanuman Prasad of India said that “it is the impurities of your own mind that is mainly responsible for brining to your notice only the dark side of others. Make your own mind faultless and you will find that the numbers of sinners in this world is very much reduced.”

Dear Nadira

I found the article below (42 murders in three months… 24 execution-style killings, few solved) very disturbing in terms of Guyana’s progress as a nation state.  I wondered if this was the independent Guyana your father envisaged and also how he would have dealt with this situation, if he was still alive ??

Hi Nadira:

I was just visiting www.jagan.org (for the first time, I might add) and thought I would send you this email.

Specifically, I am writing to tell you that your father, the late, great Dr. Jagan was a true hero.

Before I continue, I would say that I am an Afro-Guyanese. I mentioned that because the nature of politics in Guyana has caused many Guyanese of a particular ethnic background to overlook and disregard the accomplishments of people from a different race. That has certainly been the case with Dr. Jagan.

Several years ago when he was Opposition Leader, I met him at the Parliament. At the time I was reading his The West on Trial. He shook my hand when I called out his name as I walked past him. That's a moment I always remember.

I believe he made his contribution to our nation's coming to consciousness. I was among the thousands who mourned his passing. I will always think of him as a true hero of Guyana. I know you are proud of him. You have every right to be!

Hi Nadira:

Hi, this is Justin Spady. Two of my great-uncles are Charles Jacob, Jr. and Neville Bissember, Sr. (my grandfather was Charles's oldest younger brother, Frank). Though I do not agree with all that Cheddi Jagan said or his policies, as a teenager that is a citizen of the United States with part of my family from Guyana, I appreciate this website and all the others that preserve Guyanese history and present it to a whole new generation. The lessons from history are all that are left that we can use to guide us in the present into the future.

 


 

I'm Sudhir Narayan Pujari, a Pediatrician from Bombay, India, settled and practising in Mississippi in the U.S. Really appreciate your good work, a true tribute to your great father.

·         Listening to the voice of your father, about the working class, reminds me of
listening to him at one of his public meeting that he used to have in my home
village, Triumph, on the East Coast of Demerara.
I hope in the future, I will be able to hear more of them.

Ms. Jagan-Brancier:

I enjoyed reading your site on the WWW concerning the life of your
father, Dr. Cheddi Jagan.

My brother is an American medical missionary in Guyana.  For the last
few summers, I have gone to Guyana and worked with him.  I have found
your country to be fascinating.  The Guyanese people are truly
wonderful.

I have enjoyed my experiences in your country and long to return this
summer.

May God Bless You,

Derrell DeLoach

Although I am not of Guyanese origin, I have friends who are. Thus, I am very interested in learning about their country and this exceptional man, truly the 'Father of Guyana".  Your website provides a wealth of information.  It is a wonderful tribute to Dr. Cheddi Berret Jagan.  Thank you!

To Janet Jagan:  I was fortunate to see a program about you and your illustrious husband on public television in Missouri.  I was struck dumb by the perfidy of the CIA and the United States.  You were so impressive in the program - no attempt to be anything but who you are.  You are an inspiration to me and I am sure, to many others.  Your strength of character and sense of purpose shines through everything you do.  I am ashamed that I knew nothing about you and Guyana before watching Independent Lens but I will educate myself.  You are a guiding light in the world.

Sincerely, 

Denise Cooke

MESSAGE FROM THE ACG-CANADA

 The Executive and Members of the Association of Concerned Guyanese - Canada (ACG) extend their deepest condolences to the family, the People’s Progressive Party, the Government and People of the Republic of Guyana on the passing of  our former President, Her Excellency Mrs. Janet Jagan, “the Mother of our Nation”.

 Mrs. Janet Jagan was a true freedom fighter and a courageous patriot of Guyana.  She dedicated over sixty-three years of her life in selfless service to the people of Guyana. Guyana and Guyanese owe their Freedom and Democracy to this indomitable and courageous woman who walked side-by-side with her husband, the late Dr. Cheddi Jagan, “the Father of our Nation”.

 We are forever grateful to her, our dear and beloved Comrade Janet  “the Mother of our Nation”, and we will all miss her tremendously.  Once again our heartfelt and profound sympathies to the bereaved families and friends and may her soul rest in peace.


 

3/28/2009

Please accept my deepest sympathy.  We all share your loss even though I know you feel it more acutely.   She was mother to us all and mother to our nation.  Whether we realise it or not, every Guyanese is in her debt. 
 
Please realise that the nation mourns with you...  yes, even the PNC.  This is a measure of her greatness.
 
Her accomplishments will live on forever.  She will always be remembered.
 
Krishna Persaud



3/29/2009

Dear Ms  Brancier:

The loss of your mother leaves a huge hole in my heart and I grieve with you for her loss. In my young days and ,in her young days also, I had the pleasure of meeting her when I was your uncle Paul's roommate in college at DePaul. She warned me then of my philandering ways and had I listened to her I would have graduated with Paul as a medical doctor and returned home. Instead I married an American girl and my father never spoke to me for over twelve years. I remembered your mother fondly when I read of her passing and cried for a moment, remembering how beautiful she was.

God bless you and your family.

Joseph S. Persaud, Huntley, Illinois, USA 


 

3/30/2009

My sincerest sympathy to you and your entire family on the passing of your dear mother.

She will long be remembered as a champion of the poor and downtrodden not only in Guyana but throughout the entire universe.  And to that end, she has received lots of accolades including the Ghandi Peace Prize.

May she rest in peace.

On this very sad occasion I extend my deepest sympathy to you and your entire family. Your mother was a remarkable woman who understood life as a duty and a gift and live her life to an ideal of example and service. The people of Guyana will miss her dearly. Her courage, humility and generosity were the attributes that form this lasting impression on me. Through her integrity and industry she discharge the duties of motherhood successfully with dignity and distinction thereby earning the rest of all of us who toil in the pursuit of such humility.

"The mother is everything, she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy and forgiveness."

May her soul rest in peace.

Hello,

Please accept my deepest condolences on the death of your beloved mother and a great Guyanese patriot. She was the soul of the nation, she helped to liberate from the shackles of colonialism. She sacrificed much, including time with her children, for the greater good of an adoring people.

Guyanese owe her a huge debt of gratitude, but she would protest that she did not do it for gratitude but out of love for your father and the cause he gave his life for.

As a little boy growing up at 199 Charlotte St., I remember her kindness.. She always had time for a hello.

Hello Nadira

I express my deepest sympathies on the passing away of your mother, Janet Jagan.

.She was not only your mother, but the mother of our native country and even more, of our beliefs, our philosophy and our ideology. She is truly among the greatest of persons that I can speak of. The teachings of your Mother and Father still guide me to this day.

Jonathan Samaroo


 

4/3/2009

Dear Nadira,
I have only just heard of the death of your mother and would like to extend my deep condolences. She was truly one of the most extraordinary people to have walked the earth, a mover and shaker of great passion, bravery and dedication. One of the hallmarks of a truly great person is that they do what they do not for the enhancement of their own ego but for the sake of others, and that was your mother.

Please extend my condolences to Joey as well, though I doubt he will remember me. Now you have lost two wonderful parents - I feel sad for you and wish you the strength to carry on their legacy.

Dear Friends,

I read The West on Trial many years ago, around the time when I
joined the Communist Party of Canada. It has always been an
inspiration. The many recent tributes to Janet Jagan are reminding me
of the struggles in your country and I wish you success in your work
against imperialism today.

Darrell Rankin
Leader, Communist Party of Canada - Manitoba


Dear Nadira

I have just found out about your mother's death on March 28.  Olive and I would like to offer you and your family our very deepest sympathy.  Janet was a remarkable lady and she will be sadly missed.

Yours sincerely,

Alan Ridler.
