Paulo Coelho, Brazilian-born author whose works have been published in over eighty languages worldwide, is known for his captivating, writing skills which go so much further than just words; exploring identity, spirituality and the inner being in a way which is, sometimes, quite spookily relative and excitingly engaging.

For decades, the ocean, mysterious and dreaded by man, has been key to our survival. An unknown power of nature and vastly unexplored area of utmost importance, it is an unpredictable environment to coexist with.

Qui ne connaît pas l’histoire du garçon qui criait au loup ? Quand les prophètes de malheur ne se comptent plus, la véritable alerte pourrait s’avérer inutile. Beaucoup se posent des questions quant au risque d’un « black-out » dans le pays, mais ne font pas toujours l’effort de comprendre ce que ce mot qui fait si peur veut dire.

Geopolitics is what Narendra Modi’s visit is all about. The crux is the re-calibration of global power-play to balance America’s “Pacific pivot” geostrategic wrestle against China with an Indian Ocean dimension of that same geostrategic wrestle.
I regularly travel to and spend time in Mauritius. Very sad to see how the previous government was literally short of changing the whole Mauritian community, bordering on African style dictatorship. The diverted astronomical sums of monies located in private coffers, sheltered bank accounts and invested on behalf of well known parties would be more than enough to fund numerous infrastructure projects that could deliver immediate benefits to the suffering community.
Hello and welcome to my brand new weekly column, Sabah Says! My name is Sabah Ismail and I am a twenty-something Mauritian expat, originally from Manchester in England – with big hair and a lot to say.
Le Premier ministre est constitutionnellement responsable de la fonction publique, mais la responsabilité de gérer et d’administrer les “affaires” courantes incombe au ministère de la Fonction publique et des Réformes administratives.
Co-founder with four others of Democracy Watch Mauritius five years ago, Dan was always, week after week, present and active in our review of society and happenings, to precisely denounce the manquements against democracy but also applaud the advances.
