Janine Ramphul left this earth as she lived.
A spade is a spade, love me or not.
Love we were in mostly silent memories.
This lady left with family, no fanfare, no politics.
Janine Ramphul leaves a legacy Mauritius has lost.
Decency, pride, honesty.
Janine experienced how human beings can be denied their basic rights.
Being a Jew, her legacy I carry in me.
Having been a secular being, her funeral makes sense.
Why have hypocrisy in departure to better pastures?
On behalf of history solely,
Janine Ramphul is the wife of Droopnath Ramphul.
She was left a widow with a college for recognition.
Janine aunty, rest. You made us proud.
