Georgetown: The homeless conundrum – commentary

The homeless conundrum

Georgetown’s homeless, like their counterparts in every other city in the world, are its most highly visible yet unseen residents. Homeless is a broad name used to refer to a wide range of people who live on the streets for myriad reasons. Among them are the elderly, who eschew the lack of liberty available at ‘old folks’ homes or at their children’s/relatives’ residences; the abandoned, who can’t fit in with family/relatives because of an illness; the runaways; the drug and alcohol addicted and the mentally ill.

They tend to congregate in busy areas where they can receive a daily handout.   Continue reading

But 11 young boys led by Shimron Hetmyer were hardly thinking about the ramifications of their performance on the big picture as they scripted a tense five-wicket win over India Under-19 in the final at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today.

That the West Indians’ minds were very much in the present was evident in the fourth ball of India’s innings after West Indies elected to field on a green-tinged pitch that was being used for the third time in the tournament. Standing outside his crease to Alzarri Joseph, Rishabh Pant was caught unawares as Tevin Imlach’s underarm throw gave him a stumping off the tournament’s fastest bowler.  Continue reading
