About the Author:

Frank was born to Bissondaye and Boodram Maharaj of Tunapuna, Trinidad in November of 1940. He was the fourth of ten children, four boys and six girls. Before completing elementary school, Frank was apprenticed to a local mechanic, seemingly crushing his secret dream of attending high school. He overcame many obstacles and eventually attended Saint Charles Boy's High School. Upon graduating, he was offered a teaching position at Saint Charles; his starting salary was $15.00 a month. Following the death of his father, Frank joined the Civil Service briefly, went to England to pursue his studies, and returned to Trinidad. He taught at Saint Charles Girl's High School from 1962 - 1967. Frank came to Canada in 1967 to attend Lakehead University. While there, he met and married his wife of 37 years, Diana. He also earned an Honours Bachelor of Arts (Philosophy and English) and a Bachelor of Education. He continued his studies at Ottawa University where he earned his Masters degree in Education. Frank and Diana have three children and two grandchildren. Frank dedicated 33 years of his life to teaching in the Rainy River district. He retired in 2005 but continues to share his stories with young people. Frank and Diana currently live in Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada.

Book Description Trafford Publishing, Canada, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A reflection on a young Trinidadian s life - full of heartache, regret, and hope. By chronicling Snapshots of his life, Maraj allows readers to gain some understanding of a very different culture - growing up poor in Trinidad. He struggles with balancing his responsibilities to the family after his father s premature death, with his compelling desire to go abroad to study. The joys, delights, trials and tribulations are laid bare as Maraj reveals stories that help to share notions of family, education, friendship, ambition, politics, religion, and humour with a new generation. How does a young Hindu boy who is berated continually go from stupid and hopeless to respected teacher ? As you read some of the comical mishaps (cutting upholstery out of a neighbour s car without permission, weeding out a prized vegetable garden) you might wonder how he ever made it. This story is a must read for every teacher, parent and student who has ever felt that hope was dim. The story of young Frankie Boodram is proof that every child is worth it! Snapshots is an honest, transparent examination of the insecurities of a young Hindu boy attending Catholic school and the complications that arise from such a mix. It examines his struggles to overcome feelings of inferiority and unworthiness because of race, religion, and social status and his search to find his place in the world.
