A precocious boy, Oscar Ramjeet was taken out of school at the age of 12 to earn for his family. Yet the ambition to become somebody lodged in him early. And the discovery that he could charm many young women enhanced his self-belief. He acquired the will to pursue the measured, often laborious, way up from an errand boy (sweeping a lawyer's office and running errands) to becoming a law clerk then a lawyer - in 28 years - and eventually the Solicitor-General of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as well as Belize. Oscar's life of constant work spans much of the Caribbean. Along the way, he encountered many who were prominent in law, cricket, journalism and politics including Forbes Burnham. As a journalist, Oscar covered numerous important events in the region. He is known as a Caribbean man. A good autobiography is also a study in social history. This book is more than the story of Oscar Ramjeet.
