Story Highlights The Government of Jamaica is providing $100 million in bursaries, under the PATH Tertiary Bursary to assist these students. Some 1,000 tertiary level students from Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH) households across the island are to benefit from scholarships to complete their studies.The Government of Jamaica is providing $100 million in bursaries, under the PATH Tertiary Bursary to assist these students.Ministry of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, on Wednesday, November 13, signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with representatives of the 18 institutions, through which the bursaries will be offered, during a ceremony at the Knutsford Court hotel in New Kingston.Mr. Kellier said the programme represents a significant investment not only in the youth of Jamaica, but also in the development and growth of the country as a whole.The initiative is also in keeping with the Government’s strategic priority for fiscal year 2013/2014, aimed at enhancing social protection for the most vulnerable and providing educational advancement for all citizens.“[This] investment ensures that some of the nation’s brightest and most innovative minds are not left behind because of poverty,” Mr. Kellier stated.“Any national development strategy that engages the private sector, civil society and academia, especially in relation to our youth, is sure to increase the prospects for national success,” he added.Mr. Kellier also commended the tertiary institutions that have come on board, pointing out that their participation is a “sign of confidence” in the promise that if properly trained, Jamaica’s wide-ranging human resource, will be able to meet the needs of the labour market.He encouraged the beneficiaries to seize the opportunity by giving of their best. He also implored them to adopt an attitude of volunteerism, by investing their time and talents in the development of their communities and country.“I implore you to do this, if only because you have a responsibility to your country by helping to uplift yourself and your family,” he said.Students under the programme will receive $100,000 each towards tuition fees, boarding costs or book expenses.For a student to qualify for the PATH Tertiary Bursary intervention, he or she must have received a PATH benefit while in secondary school; be enrolled in their second, third or fourth year in any tertiary level institution accredited by the University Council of Jamaica during fiscal year 2013/14; and attained a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or above in their first year of study.They can apply for the bursary through their institutions and payments will only be made to the school after a submission is made to the Ministry of Labour and Social Security by the institution.Director of Social Security in the Ministry, Denzil Thorpe, said a major objective of the tertiary bursary intervention is to assist members of PATH families to become employable.He noted that since the inception of PATH, there has been significant investment in primary and secondary education. However, the ability of the programme to realistically reduce the inter-generational cycle of poverty is affected by the fact that some families have been unable to fund their children’s education beyond the secondary level.Mr. Thorpe said the government’s goal is to sustain the gains made by PATH by assisting families to complete tertiary education thereby making them employable and self-sustainable.Now in its 11th year, PATH has positively impacted the lives of more than 400,000 Jamaicans in approximately 130,000 households across the island, through the provision of cash transfers, and interventions geared toward developing human capital.A 2012 targeting assessment of the programme highlighted that it has been successful in providing benefits to Jamaicans, who are in need of social protection.The assessment indicates that targeting of households for PATH benefits has been fairly accurate, with over 80 per cent of households being below the national food poverty line. The initiative is also in keeping with the Government’s strategic priority for fiscal year 2013/2014. Some 1,000 tertiary level students from PATH households across the island are to benefit from scholarships to complete their studies.

Page4, it’s also a game’ was a play penned down by Bratya Basu in 2005, and staged in 2006 by the theatre group ‘Ganakrishti’. The play has been re-staged after 10 years by another theatre group, Institute of Factual Theatre Arts (IFTA) headed by Debasish Dutta, a student and a scholar of Sangeet Natak Akademi in 2016. The storyline involves a battle between two cultural mafias, Girdharilal and Mohandas who are in control of different literary and cultural zones. The word ‘mafia’ is a commonly used parlance but the phrase ‘cultural mafia’ creates an interesting overtone. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The two cultural mafias were friends who had shared their cultural dreams and creativity with each other before they were trapped in the web of ambition, fame and power. They separated from each other to establish their cultural hegemony in terms of controlling central grants, winning state favours, possessing power to make decisions related to hall bookings and arranging book fair, control over cultural institutions, etc. They were self-proclaimed ‘dons’ embracing the cultural façade to execute the art of literary nepotism, plagiarism, royalty sharing in the style of a corporate mafia. It is an absorbing tale of the two dons fighting for establishing their pre-eminence in the cultural world at any cost. This dominance is obviously associated with economic well-being and high status of writers, poets, other fame-seekers who are the natural cohorts of these cultural empires. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe playwright reveals the emotions of jealousy, revenge, mean mindedness and ego clash with cultural figures of eminence, literally clawing into each other to win their share of fame and money. The narrative continues at the den of the don, Girdharilal, whose cultural power is not without strong links with state administration, local police, political leaders and even the ministers in power. The play unmasks the intellectual veil of the ‘bhadrolok’ society to reflect the ethical void of celebrities, making the play amazingly germane not only to the present context, but also cutting across space and time. The message seems to be clear – success cannot come with sheer talent and creative potential alone. It is a battle between those who can play the game of shrewdness, ferocity and sheer violence. The strategies have to be drawn with finesse, the judgment has to be sharp. The way to the crest has to be reached with intelligence, grit and determination and of course by removing all those who act as obstacles in the path to success. But not all is drawn in the colour scheme of black and white. The complex human side of the ‘don’ Girdharilal is visible when he helps the needy to get grants, commissions, and earn their daily economic needs. He reveals revulsion towards his professional world when he refuses to allow his children to enter his business, even when his son seems to be emotionally moved by reading Bibhutibhusan’s Chander Pahar. His emotional traits and vulnerabilities are laid bare to the maximum when the play reaches the climax and the two dons, Girdharilal and Mohandas, meet. They reminisce over their golden past of togetherness by speaking their heart out on their dreams; they recite plays under the moonlit night, and unhesitatingly admit their love and obsession for each other’s creation.The director, Debasish Dutta added, ‘The thought process of the persons involved with theatre has changed with time. They are now actively participating in the rat race for their survival. They do not mind even removing the obstacle which comes in the way. It is frightening to see the person closest to you have fallen in this vicious cycle. It has not even spared the creative world. The conflict of the interchanging face and the fascia in the changing society disturbs me a lot. The play exactly depicts the same’. The playwright also expressed his confidence on this young director. The veracity of the play written way back is still so pertinent that it rekindles the scheme of corruption at the cultural level, which people face every moment but there are a very few who raise their voice against it. Certainly Bratya Basu’s play is a satirical anecdote which helps in taking off the hypocritical façade of the cultural empire and it is a bold attempt by a young director to bring the topic back in contention.
