My dear Billy,
Here’s an unabashed definition of democracy: a government of demons, by demons, for demons. No wonder then that the government solution to any problem is at least as bad as the problem itself. Quite often too, they manage to make it worse. It is also said that government is like underwear. That’s why it becomes important to change it from time to time. But you can’t change it for the same soiled underwear.

Dear Shakespeare : Hospitable hostility

My dear Billy,
Our energetic and fidgety Minister of Tourism is never at rest, either in his office in Mauritius or abroad in any part of the world. He has taken up the job of a globetrotting salesman and attributed himself the task of selling our destination together with our sea, sand and sun, to often unwilling tourists from east and west.

Dear Dear Shakespeare – Suffer or perish?

My dear Billy,
We have often been confronted with warnings and admonitions like “suffer or perish”,  “do or die”,  “adapt or perish.”

Budget buzz

My dear Billy.
The Mauritian paradise is an extraordinary joint indeed. It took the Finance officials months to prepare the budget; it took the Minister of Finance two hours to present it to the National Assembly, but just a few minutes for some people to demolish it out of shape. What ought to be a routine exercise presenting an estimate of the national revenue and expenditure by the Minister of Finance, turns out to be a perfect battlefield for the Honourable members of the National Assembly.
