Cricket: Alvin Kallicharran Awarded British Empire Medal – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine + video

Alvin Kallicharran is Honored With British Empire Medal

Alvin Kallicharran

It was August 2015 at Idlewild Park in New York. There were a number of greats of West Indies cricket. At the end of the game the young cricketers wanted to speak to only one of them. He willingly obliged and for the next few minutes he had them under his spell. Alvin Kallicharran spoke about the need for discipline, about keeping oneself fi t and above all to never to give up, even when a mountain is staring at you.

The youngsters listened intently and at the end of his motivational speech they gave him a warm applause. Alvin’s simplicity and his ability to mix with all have endeared him to people from all walks of life. He sees it as his mission to share his knowledge with others and to pass on information that can be of help.

    Who needs a medal from the Empire stained with blood and tears and death and unimaginable torture? Mr Narine fails to address history again. He chooses, with his fancy language, to sweep British crimes against our ancestors under the rug. Alvin, though deserving of the honours, should refuse to accept it in protest and in respect for his ancestors.

      Why is the British planning to build a military base here when their country is becoming racist and xenophobic?

    Emanuel, you choose to forget Sir Frank Worrell, Sir Garfield Sobers, Sir Vivian Richards, and Sir Curtley Ambrose. These are also British awards known as KCMG. Maybe you should start a campaign to get them to return theirs as well.
