Employment generally indicated ethnic and racial identity in British Guiana. Sugar production, rice farming, mining, civil service, and education o√ered work for the colonists. Indians worked as paid laborers on the sugar plantations and owned and farmed the rice-producing lands.

Back in Chicago, Janet studied nursing at Cook County Hospital and became a member of the Young Communist League of Chicago. She met Cheddi at political gatherings of international students.

They recreated Indian village life, with a strong emphasis on family life, and celebrated their religion, building temples and mosques.
