I did cry as a fool.
I forgot the end game!
I have true memories.
I have also sadness.

Il est d’une heureuse coïncidence que la plus vieille église dédiée à Marie sur le sol mauricien soit celle de Saint Cœur de Marie à Petite-Rivière. Il est d’autant plus pertinent qu’elle soit le premier sanctuaire béni par le Père Laval, Apôtre de l’unité nationale, qui a non seulement ressuscité une Église vacillante mais aussi donné un nouveau souffle au pays tout entier.

Certains se perdent en conjectures en se demandant avec appréhension ce à quoi peuvent bien servir au Parlement quelques-uns des mandataires qui déçoivent par un comportement irrespectueux dans un langage souvent impertinent, dépourvu de bonnes manières. Désavantagés, paraît-il, d’asthénie intellectuelle, leurs arguments sans conviction et souvent flous ne convainquent point, et quand la moutarde leur montre au nez, ils se cabrent parfois dans un comportement odieux en se mettant carrément en travers des nouveaux projets du gouvernement pour la modernisation du pays. Décriés à juste raison, ces récents incidents et ces coups de gueule très provocateurs donnent l’impression que certains mécréants ne peuvent soutenir la gageure des responsabilités que leur furent confiées au scrutin électoral.

When Elizabeth, later to be known as the Virgin Queen, found herself against all odds, monarch of England in 1558 at the age of 25, she was many things, except perhaps a virgin.

La victoire de l'Independence Party (le Parti travailliste, le Comité d'action musulman (CAM) et L'independent Forward Bloc - IFB) sur le Parti mauricien social démocrate (PMSD) – 39 sièges contre 23 – sans les députés correctifs) aux élections générales du 7 août 1967 aura réservé son lot de surprises de part et d'autre.

Elections are the lifeblood of democracies. They provide an opportunity for people to reflect upon what has gone before, the state they are in and how they should grab the polls to make their voices heard and in so doing shape their future and that of their children. But we also know that elections are not enough to meet the aspirations and expectations of the citizens.

It seems that the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Consumer Protection did not do his homework properly on this major issue.  If the opposition proposes a motion of disallowance later on in parliament, it will surely make sense with the below given arguments.

Un jour, le Rat qui était aussi un roi,
pourquoi est-ce qu’un rat est un roi
nul ne le sait mais au royaume des fous
tout est possible surtout l’impossible

Je serai, la semaine prochaine, au sommet IDCCIO qui se tiendra à Port- Louis pour parler de la manière dont la prochaine vague de technologies – réseaux sociaux, mobiles, analytiques et cloud (SMAC) – permettra de libérer l’innovation et la productivité au sein de l’entreprise.

The GOPIO International
Conference on Indenture

Between 18th and 20th August 2017, the Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO) International is organizing a milestone International Conference entitled ‘The 100th Anniversary of The End of Indenture in Mauritius and the British Empire and the 70th Anniversary of the Independence of India’ at the Indira Gandhi Centre for Indian Culture, the Ramayana Centre, and at the French Institute of Mauritius. This conference will be held in collaboration with the Indian High Commission in Mauritius, the Indian Council of International Co-operation (ARSP)-New Delhi, and the International Indenture Girmityas Foundation.
The major objective of this International Conference will be to bring together scholars, government officials, public figures, community leaders and NGOs who are carrying out research on the history of indentured labour, the Indian global diaspora, the modern history of India and Indian independence. It will also see the participation of different branches of GOPIO International from around the world such as from La Réunion, Sri Lanka, Singapore, South Africa, Australia, France, and Guadeloupe. There will be academics, professors, and eminent personalities from more than 15 countries from around the world at the conference. One of the important sessions at the conference will be on intangible cultural heritage which will include an in-depth discussion on the religion, culture, and oral traditions of the Indian indentured workers and their descendants in Mauritius such as the Ramayana and Ram Leela.

Once upon a time, Mauritius used to be a quaint little paradise in its own right. Let us forget the postcard picture-perfect image of sun, sea and sand for a moment. For sure, life has been a constant struggle for such a small island as ours but with determination and sweat, we slowly carved a niche for ourselves on the international map. Our hearts swelled with pride as we contemplated where we have come and where we could go…could…could… For, you see, looking around, an air of dejection seems to have taken over, spreading its moroseness everywhere. The ready smiles and usually hopeful demeanour of Mauritians are all but gone. Drugs have now spread to every nook and cranny of the country, ravaging everything on their path, leaving families weeping inconsolably over the dead bodies of their dear ones who have succumbed to power of the lethal powder.

As the oppressive, hot and dusty Khamsin wind blows along the coast of the small fishing town of Obock in North-East Djibouti, a group of Ethiopian migrants are desperately waiting. Barely shaded by a frail acacia tree under a harrowing 45° C heat, they are gambling with their faith by trying to cross the Bab El Mandeb Strait, from the Republic of Djibouti to war torn Yemen.

« Voilà ce qu’est l’histoire: des émergences et des effondrements, des périodes calmes et des cataclysmes, des bifurcations, des tourbillons des émergences inattendues. » Au sein même des périodes noires, des graines d’espoir surgissent. Apprendre à penser cela, voilà l’esprit de la complexité », Edgar Nahoum, dit Edgar Morin, « L’Abîme ou la métamorphose? » Rencontre avec Regard Morin, Sciences humaines, n° 201 fev. 2009.

Soyons francs. On l’a tous déjà envisagé au moins une fois dans sa vie. Que ce soit pendant trois secondes ou à 2 heures du matin lors d’une crise d’insomnie. Rappelez-vous ce sentiment de lassitude où cette envie de tout arrêter ou d’en finir une bonne fois avec cette existence absurde vous explose à la figure. Est-ce que mettre fin à ses jours est aussi horrible que ça ?

While explaining systems thinking, experts often give the example of someone in a traditional bathroom with a hot-water and a cold-water tap connected to the shower.

It is high time Mauritius 2017 joined the mainstream rather than live in la la land. When it comes to a field like medecine, it is not wise to be off track. We seem to persist though and it only further damages, dents  and bruises a vital sector - our health.

Ils ont entre 13 et 19 ans, la génération qu’on dit hyperconnectée, impatiente, zappeuse et déconcentrée.

TAMBO stands for There Are Much Better Options. It's an acronym I coined back in 2007 when Dr. TINAnen was busy breaking the economy with his flat tax. It essentially demonstrated that there were more useful things to do than to turn back the clock of social progress between never-ending stories of gato-pima and savat leponz. Like considering several good options and picking the best. Feasible if you're not endowed with a reverse Midas touch.

Voices have been heard for or against the ‘Metro Express’ project, which dates back to the 80s. This paper seeks to clarify various confusing definitions. Crucially, there also seems to be a lack of vision, strategy and analysis – the national debate being, as usual, hijacked by heated political standpoints, obviously to the detriment of what is best for the country’s future.

In all fairness we must thank our collective wisdom for bringing us to accept the outcome of the polls. Since 1968 our people have been mature enough to give our full support to the verdict of the polling stations: either keeping the previous leader and his team or seeking a new one to steer the country in some other direction, but we all accepted the outcome.
