Happy #IndianArrivalDay, #Trinidad & #Tobago! Celebrated on 30 May, in commemoration of the arrival of the first #indenturedlabourers from #India on the #FatelRazak in 1845, following the #Emancipation of #Africanslaves in 1838. More than 140,000 #Indians were recruited over the next 70 years to work Trinidad’s plantations after emancipation left them without labour. Communities re-enact the arrival of this first group on beaches around the country, and outstanding members of Trinidad’s Indian community are rewarded for their contributions. The Divali Nagar site just outside Chaguanas is a focal point.
