INDIAN PUNDITS : TRINIDAD : HINDUISM : RPPC (c 1930’s)

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of “Indian Pundits” in Trinidad. A pundit is “a man with specialized knowledge or a teacher of any field of knowledge in Hinduism”. Today, as we see on the major cable news networks, a pundit is an expert in any specific area of knowledge. It is interesting to note that Hinduism is the second largest religion in Trinidad and Tobago. This ethnographic postcard is part of a series (no.400). The photo on this postcard was taken in 1931 and the card itself dates back to the 1930’s.  SOLD
