Dear Shakespeare : Rickety- fidgety budgety

My dear Billy,
Whenever it is budget time, I am reminded of two realities. First, a budget is a plan for getting broke methodically; and second, a budget is an orderly way of discovering that you can’t live on what you’re earning. Listening to Xavier Duval as he went through his marathon the other day, I nostalgically recalled my “just married” budgets.

Dear Shakespeare - Children of the eclipse

My dear Billy,
I don’t know how people in your days reacted to an eclipse, but I’m pretty sure that they must have taken it in their stride, never attaching too much importance to it, as they must certainly have found out that, eclipse or no eclipse, life like business, went on as usual.
My dear Billy,
The release of a book is always a moment of exaltation. When the book comes form the pen of the Muse herself, the event achieves a sublime dimension and turns into an extraordinary experience of joy.

Dear Shakespeare : The love of food

My dear Billy,
The story of man’s experiments with food dates back to the very days when God, in his creating spree, created the first man and the first woman on earth, and told them they could eat anything they found around them, all except one.
My dear Billy,
I don’t know who’s the guy who came up with the wisecrack that marriages were made in heaven; maybe the implicit connotation was that the marriage hell was lived and endured here on earth.
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 Shakespeare : Racy, Romantic Rodrigues

My dear Billy,
I don’t know if I have told you before. Even if I have, I don’t mind repeating it, and I can say it again and again: The Mauritian paradise, of which we never cease to boast and are ever so complacent about is, in fact, situated in Rodrigues, and it is being taken good care of by the whole population there.

Dear Shakespeare : Never postpone…?

My dear Billy,
To what extent have you allowed your life to be influenced, guided or controlled by proverbs, sayings, quotations, maxims and dictums of all sorts coming from the  four corners of the world?
