Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Ken Jaikaransingh and I spent 17 years at St Mary’s, the College of the Immaculate Conception.

I come from a family of seven children in Upper St Vincent Street, probably the most diverse street in Port of Spain. Offices and government buildings dominated the lower southern end of the street. Our family home was a stone's throw from all of the city's cinemas, where I spent considerable time. Green Corner, the divide marking Upper St Vincent Street, was a magnet for activity. We pushed pans for Renegades, Desperadoes, Invaders and whoever else along the grass track leading to the Grand Stand. We roamed from Cascade to Carenage, Woodbrook to St James. St Clair and Maraval, where wealthier people lived, seemed somehow off-limits to us. We were more comfortable in the alleys of Belmont.
