  • Dear Janine,

    Thank you for the link and I accept it in the spirit of the offering. Bur instead of being called a guru, I’d prefer to be called a pandit, and I MUST now be referred to as “Geoffrey-ji.” So in the style of early Naipaul or Kevin Baldeosingh, I can now publish a new book which should be a bestseller in the Caribbean, “The One and Only Truth About Life and Literature: The Sayings of Pandit Geoffrey-ji Otherwise known as Guru Geoffrey, Ras Geoffrey and Herbert Spliffington”
