Where the mind is without fear…

My dear Billy,
I have chosen to cull the title from the first line of one of Rabindranath Tagore’s famous Gitanjali poems.

Voting with rage

“You must vote with rage.” This behest emanates from an opposition parliamentarian with regard to the coming Municipal elections.

Budget blues

My dear Billy,
As far as I know you, I can safely surmise that you were not among the poor band of silly Mauritians who masochistically sat through the unending budget marathon the other Friday.

A Malabar in Rodrigues

My dear Billy,
The above title is not to be taken in the same vein as “Stranger in Paradise” or “Alice in Wonderland.” Nor is it pointed towards any Hindu male or female based or living in Rodrigues.

While waiting for tomorrow

My dear Billy,
How you ever noticed how people simply forget to live today because they are waiting for tomorrow? Indeed the number of people who waste the day in anticipation of an elusive, often disillusioning, tomorrow is simply flabbergasting. Little do they seem to realise that life, at its essence, boils down to one day at a time, and that today is the day.

A taste of fear

My dear Billy,
What place did fear occupy in your life? Has it ever occurred to you that our passage on earth is paved with a thousand fears? It would seem that the whole world is a big garden strewn with a great variety of fears, anxieties and apprehensions.

The act of giving

My dear Billy,
Has it ever occurred to you how a small gift, when it is given, can be a magnificent bounty as it is received? Have you ever realised how something that you have long discarded and put out of use can fill the heart of someone else with happiness when it is given to them?

Nation of namak harams

My dear Billy,
As a nation, we Mauritians are both sweet and salty, and excessively so on both counts, if we go by results of statistical research. Observers and researchers are downright categorical – Mauritians consume far too much salt and sugar, a great deal more than their health permits.

Medicine for the soul

My dear Billy,
It is said that laughter is the best medicine for the soul. You will agree therefore that our world is desperately in need of more such medicine.

A world of dreamers

My dear Billy,
What was the stuff your dreams were made of? I reckon your whole life must have been one long stretch of dreaming which came to an end only on the day you quit this world for your celestial abode. Dreaming is an act of pure imagination which must have bestowed upon you the creative power with which you are still ruling across the centuries.
