Excessive noise—not our culture
The bellowing, screaming persons who made the excessive noise for the Brian Lara et al cricket party, were so deafening it was unbelievable. No one seemed to be in control, not even the Prince of Port-of-Spain, as pleas were ignored. This total disrespect of every one and everything is so prevalent. The advertisements with reference to music is our culture, excessive noise is not, should be removed as they are of no consequence. The suffering which residents have to endure, with no help from any officials, shows what a horrible mess this island is in. ‘Party and drink forever and all yuh make some noise’ should be T&T’s motto. The noise is reminiscent of a mad society, the fete promoters and the alcohol companies rule this land, not the government.This excessive noise is designed to drive one insane.
We do not look forward to the advertised Independence Day party at the Oval. Again the organisers should be considerate and be aware that the noise affects all around. The massive sound systems should be banned. No amount of fees for exceeding the decibel level would be a deterrent, as again the party must go on. Even the EMA cannot manage. Whoever organised the Independence Day free party should have had better sense—the Savannah or Napa, not the Oval. Sadly, our entire weekend has been spoiled by the Brian Lara et al event at the oval last weekend. It is no wonder that our athletes are under-achievers, too much partying. God Bless Keshorn for his simplicity and hoping that he remains with humility, and does not become like some others. We pray that God bless our nation and for us to be mindful and respectful of each other. Discipline, production, tolerance and no excessive noise.
