ANOTHER member of the Yankarran family has died.

Suresh Yankarran, 67, from Brickfield, Waterloo in Carapichaima, died on Sunday at 8.30pm at the San Fernando General Hospital.

On January 2, 2017, Suresh's brother, Anand Yankarran, died of cardiac arrest. The two singers were the sons of the legendary singer Isaac Yankaran (deceased) and Moonima Yankarran of Freeport.

Suresh, the husband of Samdaye Yankarran, was the father of eight children.

His daughter Nirmala said her father died of cardiac arrest, but had suffered two strokes recently and had had to quit singing after surgery to his throat two years ago.

"He was a man of his word. He would always try to meet the demand for classical songs in the country," Nirmala said. She said that like the other Yankarran brothers, Anand and Sham (both deceased), Ashook and Rakesh, he loved to present the songs recorded by their father.

A former chutney monarch, Rakesh is known as the Raja (king) of classical songs in TT. He said it is a very sad day for him as he remembers his childhood days when his elder brother would sing and encouraged him to sing as well.

"He did us proud as a Yankarran and he has definitely left a void in the Yakarran family as well as in the world of classical singing in the country," Rakesh said.

The Yankarran family now consists of him, his brother Ashook and two sisters, Surekha and Devika Yankarran. All four Yankarrans are well-established singers.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.

I also want to start a Hollywood in the west indies.

I vex with amrican nig nogs. they are traitors. deh all over the net talking about how we get propagandize and lied to by the white man, how the movies lie and all dat. you know the story.

but look how many Black american men and women in Holywood and the entertainment industry. some are billionaires now.

look how many great black actors there are..and most of them go act in movies and carry out roles inimical to the interest of Black people for money.


why complain about white lies and propaganda and go help him make it while we don't do a dam thing of we own when we can do so?

I doh want to hear ah fuck from all the scholars..all deh do is talk but when deh talk deh also get money and are ok so deh talk and talk and talk... and don't act. deh playing a game too. deh doh want to risk nutten the skunt an dem.

deh tell we the movies have no good positive Black role models for nig nogs to follow..especially the yute an' dem. but we did make the movies so what to expect. I fed up with them..I doh lissen no more.

that is what the 60 million is for: to get some capable west indian impses to write screen plays and docs about west indian life to provide positive role models for we people..Williams, Capildeo, Gomes the crook, Forbes another crook but Rodney too, and Ismael..and up the islands the great ones up there

then make a movie about Boukman, and about Garvey, explore indenture and the slave trade before indenture.

by the time ten do well we have writers working, technicians of all kinds for a movie industry, computer experts, camera men and women, directors, actors. then we go work them skunt lazy americans in after setting up Trini law..or west indian law if the rest want in and deh shud..to protect the industry from Khazar depredation and attack

the americans can come in and break the Khazar control in america. and if deh come in we have the whole of america as customers. we in bizness.

and to get the rest of region in on the action open up movement between the islands. no passport necessary as long as you west indian born. make regional ID so everyone can walk in and out. and if deh go the way I propose there will be wuk fuh them all over.

I want to build a port on the north to east side of Titty facing the region going north and BG going south. east to get in and out for the region for trade and travel by sea..that all focused on Port of Spain. forrin trade and travel can go to POS..west Indians on the new port. even make a second airfield for small passenger regional air lines to work out of

once the regional movement is focused on those ports in that areas of TT it would be easy to monitor the travel to make sure it is only real west indians profit by open and free regional movement by west indians in the west indies

that is what the 60 million is for too..seed money for all of that development
