Mauritius, the paradise island…and wat?
Branded with the trade mark of “The Paradise Island”, Mauritius is the “destination de reves” of millions of people, source of inspiration of numerous poets, wonderful and un-exploited landscapes of hundreds of films, mostly bollywood movies
“You gather the idea that Mauritius was made first, and then heaven; and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.”
Mark Twain, “Following the equator” 1897.
What Mark Twain didnt predict at that time was that, That Mauritius of the 1890’s would be completely different from the Mauritius of the 21st century.
Things have changed up from then and if Mark Twain was still alive, perhaps he would have changed That famous citation to:
“You gather the idea that Mauritius was made first, and then hell; and that hell was copied after Mauritius.”
Mark Twain, “Following the equator” 2007
Nowadays, People are living struggling to live in Mauritius mainly because of the rotten politics and corruption of the country, and did i say corruption?
- Mauritius as a Democratic Country
Thousands of essays of this type are being written every year by thousands of students, discussing the advantages of such practices in a country but, do we really live in a democratic country?
- Safety In Mauritius
Are we really safe and sound in Mauritius?
Well, thats not what is written in newspapers of heard of in the private radios…
Stealing and Raping are the 2 main activites in the darker side of Mauritius…On Tuesday, i read that a security officer drove off with his own official vehicle, with over 2 millions in it, while he was supposed to keep an eye over the money…
I think, authorities should give diploma courses to such type of potential criminals lol…Today, i read that a 17yr man raped an old woman of over 65years, because his strong desire to do the thing…
LOL, xtra desire sa 😛 sa si wiz an old woman….
- Authorities in Mauritius
A topic which is making the “headlines” of many newspapers and lots of blogs over the country is the Banning of facebook during some hrs recently…
As a cyber island, its a shame for such actions…
Now, even the head of the ICTA admits that there was perhaps some error somewhere in that decision…Police Brutality & Abuse Of Power of Government officials
In a previous post, i discussed a lot of this, and these practices are no where to have an ending in the near futur…
These above, are only some of the issues right here from the paradise island without forgetting those which are not mentioned for political and national security(lol) reasons, for example;
- Explosion In Grand Baie
- Affaire Bassin Blanc
- only these 2 come into my mind at this moment 😛 but there is a whole list…
Well, i think that i have written quite enought things, but i would also like to share one positive point, applicable for year 2008…
We will be having 15 public holidays including 14 of them falling on WEEKDAYS!
WOW! thats great, no work for 14 weekdays 🙂 lol…
