Janet- did not do any thing for Guyana, she just screw things up, she married Jagan just to get back at those People that took away her Child Hood,so what. she put JAG-DEO where he is today, and you know what, he is Having a Field Day, as Guyana President, Janet cannot tell Mr,Jag-deo what to do,and I do not think he run to her for advice, there are better People than Her to ask for Help.Janet Days are over, when it comes to Politics and her Health.

When I look back at the life of Janet Jagan I see a mixed picture. Here is a woman who was unforgivable in her rage, anger and vengence yet would give you her last dollar if you were hungry. I never understood her. From the first encounter I had with her on the Torani ferry in 1975 when her open car door almost broke my foot and not a sorry from her. To the time as a boy when I saw her shouting and cursing a group of armed GDF soldiers in an armoured patrol vehicle who had stopped her car and had ripped up the seats looking for weapons. I said to myself that woman has got balls of iron. Then to hear my grandmother talk about how she was helped by Janet when she had no money and had six kids to feed. I am not happy or sad over her passing. I don't know why. Maybe that is the way she was in life

Pilot-102, its no such thing as an Indo, Guyanese.or an Afro Guyanese, its either you are Black or White. you do not want us to call you COOLIE, so the best Name to call you is a Black East Indian Guyanese. in Trinidad its a Trini Indian. and in Barbados its COOLIE PEOPLE from GUYANA. and BLACK from GUYANA.

I don't agree with Dr. x when it comes to that brute rascal Blue. I hope he joins Mrs. Jagan as soon as possible.
But I agree with Dr.X in that in the minds of many orientals and whites there is no difference between an east indian or African they are black people.

It's all stupidity of people talking bad about Mrs. Jagan when they knew her struggles for them as she lived in their country, she was white but she like the people and always helped them.

Now black and white what a deal, black people are already black, Indians are Indians however they worked and mingled together regardless of any racial slurs etc..she never think like that because no matter what they are Guyanese living in the same country even PP of PNCR. Mr Jagdeo is going abroad not for himslef but to better his country for the people so don't be ungrateful the guy is doing alot....Hats Off!

Now there’s a melody I would love to continue……..

Everyone needs to work together and iron out their differences. This woman did a lot for this country despite a few would deny that. The thousands that paved the road ways yesterday was vindication of her hard work and dedication for the betterment of all Guyanese.
