PANIS ANGELICUS
Written by Saint Thomas Aquinas
Music by César Franck
Performed by Friar Alessandro Brustenghi

Panis angelicus fit panis hominum;
Bread of the Angels is made bread for mankind;
Dat panis coelicus figuris terminum;
Gifted bread of Heaven, of all imaginings the end;
O res mirabilis! Manducat dominum
Oh, thing miraculous! This body of God will nourish
Pauper, pauper servus et humilis.
Pauper, pauper servus et humilis.
The poorest and humblest of servants.

A Note From The Gull


Thank you Friar Alessandro.

I took the advice generously dispensed recently by a compatriot that we should use Google to educate ourselves about whether the human body can or cannot survive without food and without water for more than X number of days. So anxious was I to avoid being included on that author's list of “morons who don’t even have the sense to google longest hunger strike” that I even let slide his comment on totalitarianism and rushed through the rest of his article.

Well, I am happy to report to my readers that once again my willingness to humbly take the counsel of my betters has paid off. I diligently googled and found the story about an Indian sadhu named Prahlad Jani who claims to have not taken food or water for over six decades. The video below is just a snippet of the documentary which tells his story.  You are entitled to arrive at your own conclusions after acknowledging of course, the inputs of the critics who questioned the validity of the scientific investigation conducted by the Government of India.

My intention is not to suggest that Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh is being sustained by pranic feeding. Those are matters about which I know virtually nothing but it shocks me even more to consider that he may not even be receiving the benefit of that sustenance in his struggle. I am not at Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh's side 24/7 so I cannot say that my belief is based on what my eyes have seen. I believe him because I have no reason not to, because deceit is not something that I associate with his name, a name by the way, which is destined to be admitted to the memory of the blessed. Mine definitely won't. Will yours?

For better or for worse, to be raised Roman Catholic is to be steeped in the mysteries, and over the years, despite the best efforts of the dross of this world, I remain predisposed to entertain the miraculous. Apparently Shakespeare was similarly afflicted:

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

SUHANI RAAT AND CHAUDHVIN KA CHAND
Mashup performed by Aakash Gandhi [ft Jonita Gandhi and Studiounplugged]

SUHANI RAAT
Suhani raat dhal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge
The beautiful night has slipped away, don't know when you will come.

Suhani raat dhal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge
The beautiful night has slipped away, don't know when you will come.
Jahan ki rut badal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge
Throughout the world the seasons have changed, don't know when you will come.

Suhani raat dhal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge
The beautiful night has slipped away, don't know when you will come.

Nazaarein apni mastiyaan dikha dikhaake so gaye
The sights have shown their beautiful effects and are gone now
Sitaarein apni roshni luta lutaake so gaye
The stars shone and now are no more.

Suhani raat dhal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge
The beautiful night has slipped away, don't know when you will come.
Jahan ki rut badal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge
Throughout the world the seasons have changed, don't know when you will come.

CHAUDHVIN KA CHAND
Chaudhvin ka chand ho, ya aaftaab ho
Are you the full moon, or the dazzling sun?
Jo bhi ho tum Khuda ki kasam, laajawab ho
Whatever you may be, I swear to God, you are beyond compare!
Chaudhvin ka chand ho?
Are you the full moon?

Zulfein hain jaise kaandhon pe baadal jhuke hue
Your hair is like a soft cloud kissing your shoulders
Aankhen hain jaisi mey ke peyaale bhare hue
Your eyes are like two goblets
Masti hai jis mein pyar ki, tum woh sharaab ho
And you are the wine that fills them with a zest for love.

Chaudhvin ka chand ho, ya aaftaab ho
Are you the full moon, or the sun?
Jo bhi ho tum Khuda ki kasam, laajawab ho
Whatever you may be, I swear to God, you are beyond compare!

A Note From The Gull



Listening to this haunting mashup tonight, I am writing through this terrible sadness that I am feeling. When I first listened to this soulful performance, I heard my conversation with my country. These words, "Suhani raat dhal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge" and "Chaudhvin ka chand ho, ya aaftaab ho " are now never far from my lips and I find myself spontaneously saying them softly to myself as I go about my daily activities.

For me, three states are expressed in this beautiful remake:

1. Love and desire.

Jo bhi ho tum Khuda ki kasam, laajawab ho | Whatever you may be, I swear to God, you are beyond compare!

2. Anxious, lingering, persistent hope.

Suhani raat dhal chuki, na jaane tum kab aaoge | The beautiful night has slipped away, don't know when you will come.

3. An undercurrent of growing despair that that hope may not be realised.

The painful possibility that the "don't know when you will come" will be replaced with, "You never came. My heart is broken."

I have always felt these for my country. I feel these with Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh. The two, the man and my country, are one and the same for me.  For over two months many of us who are still capable of paying attention for more than three seconds have been inspired, embarrassed, challenged, disturbed, frustrated, threatened and outed by this man, the one who some have callously named "the human reptile."

I believe instead, that Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh is The ProtoTrinbagonian and only time will tell if he is one of the last of a trial breed on the verge of extinction or a viable precursor of what is to come. I prefer to hope that like a lance, he is opening the way and leading our advance. Roman Catholic priest, Father Clyde Harvey, suggests that it may not be that we are losing our soul as a nation but that at this moment in time, we, our leaders included, are being offered the precious opportunity to create it for the first time.

Like Father Harvey advises, we have to look beyond personalities. They, like the thousand and one upsets which have had our heads spinning over the past few years, not to mention what went before, are only symptoms, just pustules on the back of the beast, the same beast to which many of us have been furtively throwing scraps under the dinner table. They are symptoms being used as distractions, symptoms labelled disease to condemn us to an infinity of applying and reapplying plasters to societal sores that predictably continue to weep profusely. They are symptoms which confound and enervate, unsettle and exhaust, to dumb down this country with punishing, mindless dissembling...not a day of peace, not a day of intelligence, not a day of hope that isn't doomed to betrayal. I am beside myself with exhaustion and I am just a witness from afar.

To borrow the title of Neil Bissoondath's novel, there is a casual brutality about the way in which we regard and treat each other in this country.  Others have given much thought to explaining why this is so but I have no time tonight.  WE have no time. There will come a day of darkness when the hearts of the conscious will be even more broken than they are today. They will not dare to ask themselves the question: What could we have done? because the answer in all its clarity will come when it is too late. On that day, those who still have the capacity to recognise loss and to mourn it will say:

Sitaarein apni roshni luta lutaake so gaye | The stars shone and now are gone.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Below the Surface [Song]

TRUTH, TRANSPARENCY, TRUST.

BELOW THE SURFACE
By Mystic Prowler

Sometimes I does get angry when I see somebody watch a next man achievement
And declare that that was easy.
They doh see all the struggle and all the failure
They quickly form allegiance to toast the winner
But in this life there's a truth and every tree you see have a root
And is from way below the surface you bring up your fruit.

Now, Thomas Edison, the light bulb inventor
Is two thousand times he fail before the bulb could light
And when, when he reach age sixty-seven, a fire cost him two million
That's when his studio burned to the ground one December night
But he stood strong, faithful to his craft
And three weeks later released his first phonograph.

You see, he had the stuff great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface
I say, he had the stuff great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface.

They say that pressure, it does make diamonds out of rock
And is the same with the human character when our dreams are downstruck
In a jail, two men looking out through the same bars
One will fail 'cause he see mud while the other see stars
You see, while pressure humbles the weak it strengthens who earnestly seek
It's the barometer that measures the strong and the weak

Because Martin Luther and South African Nelson Mandela
The darkness in their jail cell couldn't dim their lights
And civil rights atrocities only fuel more energies
For the more injustice rages, the more they fight
And for twenty-seven years Nelson Mandela suffer
And from jail became President of South Africa.

You see, Nelson had the stuff that great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface
Potential, I say, he had the stuff that great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface.

Check any success story, take any one you wish
And you'll see the road is often littered with blocks and rubbish
When as you clear one hurdle, you will meet another
And as you lift one burden, you will hit a next gutter
You see while your progress is slow, your determination must grow
Just affirm and profess the success you already know.

Don't you know Elvis Presley was fired by Jimmy Denny?
After just one show, he was told, "Go back, go back and drive truck."
And the great Beethoven of music, imagine he was deaf at forty-six?
But that's when he produced his greatest musical stock
And the great Caruso stood firm by his choice
Although his teacher told him, "You can't sing and you have no voice."

But he had the stuff great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface
Oh, he had the stuff great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface.

As a nation, we would do well to train our young
Not to adopt a luck and chance approach or a gaming disposition
For they will dream of easy money and sweet tomorrow
From a get rich scheme with their one in one hundred thousand ratio
We need to teach foundations of truth, trees that send down good roots
Not parasites that suck at ill-gotten fruits.

Don't you know Basdeo Panday walked so many miles barefoot to school
Land in England with six dollars to take his law course?
And Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson, imagine he was shot and imprisoned?
Half blind and dying he said, "Attack, attack, attack with full force!"
For such men with belly, leadership was meant
No wonder they are Prime Minister and President.

You see, they had the stuff great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface
I say, they had the stuff great men are made of
Is the stuff you could miss unless you look below the surface.

A Note From The Gull


Thank you, Mystic Prowler.  What can I say now that I have not said before? Concerned Trinbagonians, with the exception of a small minority, are impotent and struck dumb - cat got our tongue and catfish gone with our lignum vitae. So tonight I can only rest whatever hope I have left on the wisdom of the message generously shared by Trinbagonian Roman Catholic priest, Father Clyde Harvey:
"A man fasting for a cause challenges us about our soul. Where is the soul of the nation?

With the first hunger strike, Wayne Kublalsingh gave me, and I tried to communicate it to others, three words which I think can help us find our soul - Truth, Transparency, Trust.

And the Armstrong Report which is at the center of all of this is not about the Honourable Prime Minister. It's not even about Wayne Kublalsingh. It's about whether or not we, as a people, can develop principles and processes which allow us to believe in ourselves, to always stand for truth and to try to be transparent about what we do.

Unless I can believe in your truth when you speak to me, when you relate to me, nothing is possible. I can't trust you.  Unless to some extent I can think that I am seeing through you, the real you, in the way and the process that we are engaged in, I can't trust you. And people who don't trust each other can't form relationships. No nation can endure.

So we are faced today with that challenge and a man fasting is challenging us to ask ourselves - Is there anything that we are willing to die for? Do we love anything enough, in this case Trinidad and Tobago, to identify what are the values, what are the things that I would lay down my life for as a citizen of this country?

Unless some citizens have that sense, we're are not a Republic. We are still subjects of some monarch, whatever, whoever that monarch is, and we won't survive.

So, today as we face this, let's forget about the personalities and let's think Trinidad and Tobago."

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

THE WORLD IS A CIRCLE
Music by Burt Bacharach
Lyrics by Hal David
Performed by Diana Lee and Bobby Van

The world is a circle without a beginning,
And nobody knows where it really ends.
Everything depends on where you
Are in the circle that never begins.
Nobody knows where the circle ends.

La la la...la la-la la la-la.

And just because you think you're small,
That doesn't mean that you're small at all.
And just the way a tiny branch is like a tree to a twig,
To someone else you are big.

The world is a circle without a beginning,
And nobody knows where it really ends.
Woooa! Everything depends on where you
Are in the circle that's spinning around.
Half of the time we are upside down.

La la la...la la-la la la-la.

And just because they say you're weak,
That doesn't mean you've a weak physique.
And even if they're partly right,
At least they're partially wrong.
To someone else you are strong.

And just because they say you're slow,
That doesn't mean that you're slow, you know.
And even if you're never first,
Compared to someone who's last,
They're sure to think you are fast.

The world is a circle without a beginning,
And nobody knows where it really ends.
Woooa! Everything depends on where you
Are in the circle that never begins.
Nobody knows where the circle ends.

La la la...la la-la la.

The world is a circle that never begins.
Nobody knows where the circle ends!

Entrevista con Miembros de la Comunidad Judía desalojada de Sololá.


A Las 8:45 - Entrevista judíos from Canal Antigua on Vimeo, September 7, 2104.
Interviewers: Paola Hurtado and Juan Luis Font.
Members: Uriel Goldman and Misael Santos

Human Kindness is Overflowing...

I agree completely with the decision made by the two Jewish communities, Lev Tahor and Toiras Jesed, to leave San Juan La Laguna, Sololá, Guatemala. Despite the protestations and interventions of the Procurador de los Derechos Humanos and the support of some other individuals who have decried the expulsion, these communities have made the wisest decision to put the safety of their families and children above all else, even though it is their right to remain and they would have had the law on their side if they had chosen to do so.

Some have been calling the conflict "a clash between civilisations". In this clash however, these Jews were at a serious disadvantage. They are people of peace and they do not preserve their religion, culture, families or homes by threatening others with violence or engaging in violence. They preserve it by separation and mass exodus and so far some of the adult members have left behind Israel, the USA, Canada [two provinces] and now San Juan La Laguna. Over the past two years especially, the upheaval to which they have been subjected has been especially intense. They may exist, but I am not aware of another example of yeridah t'tzorich aliyah being experienced currently by an entire Jewish community that has over a relatively short period of time been as emotionally, physically and financially punishing. Yet, the optimist in me is determined to focus on the ascent.

As for those residents of San Juan La Laguna who were responsible for the eventual exodus, they alone know the whole truth about what they hoped to achieve by their actions. I do not know enough about their community or culture to be able to comment further than I already have. Until I have better information, I will make the generous assumption that perhaps they also just wanted to be left alone.

Sometimes the thing or event that appears to be misfortune is the impetus to push us in the direction of fortune. It depends on the perspective you cultivate. One group of Christians will swear that Judas was a traitor who delivered the Christ to his executioners. Another will tell you that Judas was simply destiny's tool, that the Christ was destined to be sacrificed and He had to be betrayed by someone so that God's plan would be fulfilled. The ascent of something often hinges upon the descent of something else.

Misael Santos, standing in the ruins of the life he thought that he would be continuing to build in San Juan La Laguna, still would not condemn the entire population. He was gracious enough to acknowledge that they would be leaving behind friends that they made during their six years of residence in the town. Uriel Goldman, spokesman for Lev Tahor, has also remarked with gratitude on more than one occasion that there were villagers who had been kind to them. I do not doubt this. Thanks to the work of photographer, Jorge Dan Lopez, we have some pictorial evidence.

Without any hesitation, I can only conclude that human kindness is overflowing. Sometimes the gratitude of the recipient is the ingredient that stimulates the flow of the kindness. As the eye of the beholder calls beauty into being, human kindness and Divine mercy will find their way to those who have not lost the ability to recognise these gifts and be grateful.

I am thinking that Misael Santos and Uriel Goldman have fully understood that if we are to survive, we cannot let any benediction pass unacknowledged. In the midst of turmoil and suffering, they are the beacons that will steer us away from soul darkening cynicism and despair. God is also to be found in the ugliest of details.


33 “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.
34 The stranger who sojourns with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt:
I am the Lord your God.
"

33 “Cuando un extranjero resida con vosotros en vuestra tierra, no lo maltrataréis.
34 “El extranjero que resida con vosotros os será como uno nacido entre vosotros, y lo amarás como a ti mismo, porque extranjeros fuisteis vosotros en la tierra de Egipto;
yo soy el Señor vuestro Dios."

...and miles to go before we sleep: Toiras Jesed and Lev Tahor in Guatemala.

Translation of the article: Judíos: “Es el alcalde, no la población. Por Sergio Osegueda | Diario Digital | August 22nd 2014.

Jews: "it is the Mayor, not the population." By Sergio Osegueda | Diario Digital | August 22nd 2014.

The Council of Elders of San Juan la Laguna, Sololá, decided to expel from its territory, the Jewish community which had been located in that place for eight years. The Jews claim to have nowhere to go.

Misael Santos, Toiras Jesed Community
With less than a 24-hour deadline, the Council of Elders of San Juan la Laguna, Sololá, approved the expulsion of 200 Jews from their municipality this Friday, considering that they are a risk to the population, since through social networking they have made accusations against the inhabitants of San Juan la Laguna.

Before the decision, Toiras Jesed community representative, Misael Santos, stated that "they have no place where to go and, if we do not leave today, they have threatened to come to cut water and electricity".

The Jewish community, which has been living for eight years in San Juan la Laguna, is concerned, mainly for the children. More than half of Toiras Jesed are minors. "We as adults, we are up and ready to take to tents, but what of the children and their needs?", said Santos.

Political problem

The problem is not the population of San Juan la Laguna, according to Santos, since many are against their departure from the place. "It is a phantom Committee set up by the Mayor, when they held the meeting. This group notified us  and the notes have no stamp, or signature or anything," he said.

The representative of the Jewish community expressed the view that "it is the mayor, who since several months ago is pressing to get the community out of the village as it has no political party to support it."

The Jewish community said that they have detected that part of the population that supports the Chief Mayor is being coerced. The threats are the dispossession of their land or their homes; they end up supporting out of fear.

Diario Digital tried to establish communication with the Mayor Rodolfo López, but calls were not answered.

Racist messages

"Unfortunately have detected in the speeches of the Governor of Sololá and the Mayor of San Juan la Laguna, racist messages against this community," said the Presidential Commissioner against Discrimination and Racism, María Trinidad Gutiérrez.

A month ago was the creation of a roundtable dialogue was initiated to find a solution to a possible social conflict, according to the Commissioner, since part of the population supports the Jewish community and the other wants it to go.

"We have to determine what their immigration status, and then who accuses them of dishonest acts. Meanwhile, we should also not be subject to discriminatory attitudes", said Gutiérrez.

However, while it is expected that they will be evicted today, the Commissioner said they still hope to be able to engage in the roundtable dialogue. "We are following the problem very closely and if we detect racist and discriminatory acts, we will submit appropriate complaints," she concluded.


Translation of the article: Judíos expulsados denuncian discriminación. POR JOSÉ M. PATZÁN | Prensa Libre | 29/08/2014.
Expelled Jews denounce discrimination. By José M. Patzán | Prensa Libre | 29/08/2014.
Members of an ultra orthodox Jewish group expelled from San Juan La Laguna, Sololá, due to differences with the villagers were relocated yesterday temporarily in a building in Zone 9 in the capital, while awaiting the progress of two complaints of threats and discrimination brought to the Public Prosecutor against the Council of Elders of that town.

Representatives of Toiras Jesed community lodged two complaints with the Attorney, in which they argue that they were subjected to situations, such as threats, disconnected piped water and electricity.

They relocate

During yesterday morning, team members relocated to a building in Zone 9 which years before had accommodated the Directorate General of Immigration.

Uriel Goldman, one of the representatives of the group said they will remain temporarily in the building while finding an area outside the capital, because it is not an appropriate site for 30 families. He added that they had rented six floors and an adjoining house, where they will locate 200 people, including adults and children.

Goldman explained that the rent will be paid with their savings and donations from people who have even provided them with vegetables and other foods.

About what happened in San Juan La Laguna, he said that they are at peace and grateful to the people of the community who supported them. "We had the right to stay, but we did not want to fight, we are men of peace," Goldman emphasised.

The group held a meeting last Wednesday with the Council of Elders of San Juan La Laguna and delegates from the Office of Human Rights, but did not reach an agreement, so they decided to leave.

Neighbors claim that Jews behaved so arrogant and were bathing naked at the public beach.

The Office of Human Rights had published a statement in which it rejects the threats against the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community and describes the events in San Juan La Laguna as "humiliating and discriminatory."

Fact

230 people from the Jewish community were expelled from San Juan La Laguna.
