IN addition to everything already said by various writers, I must point out that Dr Vishnu Bisram is a humble, highly approachable and down-to-earth person, despite ‘walking with kings.’
He is the kind of individual who will give audience to any person as he has proven umpteen times via his polls and surveys and as so many can testify, including yours truly.
In spite of his myriad credentials and accomplishments, Vishnu always seeks help and assistance in just about every endeavour of his.
In short, he does not pretend to be a ‘know-all’, and willingly seeks and takes advice. He is a man that is neither ego driven nor infused with arrogance.
And unlike some who parade themselves in the media, Vishnu writes (and speaks) in the simplest language, a trait indicative of his simplicity and empathy.
Humble, approachable, simple, down-to-earth, empathetic, a people’s person, willing to listen and learn are character traits added to everything referenced by other writers.
Aren’t these the very traits that make for a good diplomat? And, added to all of this, it is the fact that he is not tainted in any way whatsoever, has nothing hidden away, and has no personal agenda except to serve Guyana with excellence.
I say this unequivocally as I have known Vishnu for three decades plus in his many avatars – journalist, educator, activist, advocate, researcher, writer, traveller, etc.
Indeed, I agree with all the others that Dr Vishnu Bisram will be an absolute asset as Guyana’s High Commissioner to India.
