Where is the cut of Rs 10 per litre in the prices of petrol and diesel that you had promised lepep, Mr. the Deputy Prime Minister? With all due respect, do you still remember what you said during the electoral campaign last year? If you are having a problem in trying to work out what you said to lepep admirab, I believe that I should take you down memory lane where you would say to yourself, ‘did I really beat my chest and vow to cut the prices of petrol and diesel once l’alliance lepep is in government?’

Further to the brilliant paper by Jean Marc Poché titled "L'éducation sésame du développement " that raises some very pertinent issues, I will like to add that we are being given an excellent opportunity for an overhaul of the whole education and training system. We should also be thinking about "formation" – capacity building that prepares our teachers and kids for the future – as voiced out by some eminent  educationists.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants India’s ambitions to stand up to its size – a billion people generating US$2 trillion of economic output – third largest in the world.  Yet, those large sized figures dwarf in comparison to China – it’s next door neighbour with a GDP that is six times (touching US$12 trillion) with just over 20% more people. A sense of universal prosperity for India can come only with a GDP per capita in the vicinity of US$10,000 (presently US$1200). Clearly there is a lot of catching-up to do. India needs to grow at over thrice its current rate - consistently - each year of the next ten years to match up with China.

I was barely 13 in the early 60s. Despite a fair amount of homework assigned by my Irish teachers, I seldom missed the local radio MBS (Mauritius Broadcasting Service) Sunday evening entertainment programme ‘Top Twenty’ which was presented by John Poulter and John Cordeaux. It was very much part of the additional exposure to the broader blossoming contemporary youth culture which was simply not found in our school textbooks.

The India-Pakistan dynamic, which is traditionally driven by ups-and-downs, has witnessed open hostility at its worst, yet incredible civility and courteousness at its best.  While high politics are involved in protracted dialogue to drive a process of sustainable and long-term peace, there are several initiatives at people-to-people level working to unite the hearts beyond the borders.

La compagnie Ultraclean Ltd était poursuivie devant la Cour industrielle sous deux charges, soit de n'avoir pas assuré la sécurité au travail de ses employés et de n'avoir pas rapporté un accident qui s'était produit sur le lieu de travail.

The paper said pupils need to be taught skills to deal with controversial issues surrounding belief effectively. Lead author Anna Trethewey explained: "Given the sensitive nature of the issues, bad intercultural education can be worse than no intercultural education at all.

The paper said pupils need to be taught skills to deal with controversial issues surrounding belief effectively. Lead author Anna Trethewey explained: "Given the sensitive nature of the issues, bad intercultural education can be worse than no intercultural education at all. Our research uncovered examples of poor intercultural education that only reinforced stereotypes or which took an unbalanced and tokenistic approach. This means helping pupils recognise commonalities but also supporting them to engage in tough conversations about difference."

Trois ans après la publication d’un rapport explosif sur un réseau international de trafiquants d’armes opérant à partir de Maurice, Kathi Lynn Austin, Executive Director de Conflict Awareness Project, revient à la charge. Dans une correspondance officielle en date du 10 août 2015 adressée au Premier ministre, sir Anerood Jugnauth, la Lead Investigator du rapport « Viktor Bout’s Gunrunning Successors : A Lethal Game of Catch Me if You Can » réclame la réouverture de cette enquête de l’ICAC, qui a été classée au niveau du bureau du DPP en décembre de l’année dernière. Elle réclame également une enquête approfondie des autorités au sujet de la fuite d’informations sur le rendez-vous de Londres de mai 2013 avec le Chief Investigator de l’ICAC. La troisième demande formulée en vue de la réouverture de cette enquête sur le trafic d’armes à partir de Maurice porte sur un “safe passage” pour elle en vue de tout éventuel déplacement à Maurice.

In order to support good governance and to establish an anti-fraud culture in Mauritius, leaders in the Public Service organisations must show an obligation to entrench effective canons and standards for defying fraud and corruption in their organisations.

It is high time that our society adopts a true concept of Mauritianism in the evaluation of our political system.

It is high time that our society adopts a true concept of Mauritianism in the evaluation of our political system. Here in Mauritius, history keeps repeating itself in so far as ethnics, caste, and religions are concerned with regards to nominations, promotions and positions at the helm of one’s political career. For instance, we have today four members of the Labour Party elected in our Parliament including Shakeel Mohamed, who is leading the Labour Party in Parliament due to his political experience as MP.

Cinchona, Lividus, Cherbourg, Cherish The Charm et Billy Bojangles sont les chevaux que nous avions repérés la dernière fois. Cinchona avait été bousculé peu après le départ et en dépit du fait que la course avait été réduite à un sprint sur 600m, il avait conclu honorablement pour conserver son rang.

La société Prokid, filiale de Clovis International, a subi un nouveau revers dans l’obligation imposée aux employés de soumettre leurs empreintes digitales pour les besoins de contrôle. Le Ruling de l’Information and Communication Technologies Appeal Tribunal, présidé par l’ancien Senior Magistrate Denis Vellien, avec pour assesseurs K. Seeballuck et K. Soowamber, représente une victoire posthume pour l’Australienne Amanda Jones, qui avait osé faire front aux injonctions de la direction de Prokid résultant en son limogeage.

The media world is abuzz with the shocking news which is currently making the headlines everywhere, for the wrong reasons; the brutal killing of Cecil, a 13-year old lion, which also happened to be the most famous one in Zimbabwe.  A resident of the Hwange National Park which is Zimbabwe's largest game reserve, Cecil had achieved an iconic status as a major tourist attraction and was known to be friendly to visitors. His size and singular black mane made him recognisable and to top it all, he was monitored as part of an Oxford University study into lion conservation, according to BBC News sources.

Among the four candidates for the Labour leadership it may be said that perhaps, in terms of personality, Andy Burnham’s good looks and Yvette Cooper’s exuberance may carry some weight but, together with the nonplus Liz Kendall, they did not seem convincing during the television debate in June last. They did not exude the same sincerity and confidence that naturally came out of Jeremy Corbyn who looked more mature and sincere in his delivery, a trait that is causing concern to some party members and more so to the political foes.

On Tuesday of last week, when in the concluding remark of my address to the participants of the workshop organised by the Nursing Association on the theme Enhancing Customer Care in the Health Service, I quoted a ‘page of wisdom’ from the Life of former President Abdul Kalam of India, it did not for a second cross my mind that less than a week later we would receive the sad, shocking and sudden news of his untimely demise, that has not only put into mourning the entire Indian population but saddened people across the world, especially those who have had the privilege of meeting him or knowing him at close range.

India's icon, Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, hailed from a very modest social background. He was the son of a boat-owner. As a boy he contributed to his family income by selling newspapers in Rameswaram, a south Indian town. After having served as chief scientific advisor to the Prime Minister of India, he was eventually elevated to become the 11th President of India from 2002-2007. He was a man of consensus and he endeared himself to all the citizens of his country.

After long months of laborious negotiations, the birth of a nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 is being received with mixed feelings. It is no secret that the BRICS are hell bent to redraw the international architecture to end a unipolar world led by the US. After a long drawn war in the Middle East and Afghanistan at the cost of $6trillion, the US is bleeding and feels incapable of talking on Russia, China, Iran, and the Islamic State simultaneously.
