THE SILENT MAJORITY: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.


There are many men and boys who are proper role models but are not involved or unaware of International Men’s Day. They comprise the silent majority who ensure that there is happiness, stability in a family and democracy in a country. This silent majority are enriching lives, bringing smiles to sad face, defending countries, upholding justice and protecting the weak and voiceless. However, this silent majority are rarely in the media because unfortunately bad news sells! But the silence is not real. Their voices are constantly heard in the schools, homes, workplace, religious institutions and the streets. The silent majority are aware of their power and are always careful not to abuse this power. They will continue to shape our society and direct the future.


Yes, the silent majority are quiet and almost invisible to the public but their contributions are invaluable. This silent majority do not care for cheap fame and honour. They are genuinely concerned that their input can make a real difference in the world. They are humble and do not seek any media publicity. It is this silent majority that IMD wants the world to know and emulate.

We need more men and women who are rational, responsible, truthful, supportive and respectful. We should try to convince everyone that such values and qualities are needed. Nobody is perfect but we must strive to attain excellence. We must always continue improving ourselves. International Men’s Day has become part of the social fabric in many countries. Yes, IMD will continue working with the silent majority at all levels of society.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
