Rohan Nuckchady : The Maths Lover

Mathematics can be the nightmare of many but, for Rohan Nuckchady, it has no mysteries. At 17 years old, he won the first prize of the Ramanujan Contest 2014, organised by the University of Mauritius in collaboration with the Srinivasa Ramanujan Trust of Mauritius. His dream is to later teach physics at university level.
Xavier-Luc Duval, leader of the Parti Mauricien Social Democrate (PMSD), has been in government for the past nine years in coalition with Navin Ramgoolam’s Labour Party. Last September, he resigned as the Vice-Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, and joined the Mouvement Socialist Militant (MSM) and Muvman Liberater (ML) to form Alliance Lepep.
Tous les projets de l’Alliance PTr-MMM sont débalancés, selon Xavier-Luc Duval. Il affirme que c’est bien pour cela qu’une compensation salariale de Rs 400 à Rs 800 a été allouée à la veille des législatives.
The Australian Government has selected six professionals from Mauritius and three professionals from Seychelles to take up Australia Awards Scholarships at Masters Level at Australian universities, as from January 2015.
Ivan Collendavelloo is a well-known personality in Mauritian politics. Barrister-at-law, he ended his long adherence with the Mouvement Militant Mauricien (MMM) when the party forged an alliance with the Labour Party. Living up to his principles, he founded Muvman Liberater (ML) and became one of the pillars of Alliance Lepep. He is standing as candidate against his former leader Paul Bérenger in the stronghold of his former party, Constituency No 19 (Stanley/Rose Hill).
In 15-years’ time, Generation Y or millennials, will make up the majority of the workforce, be it in public or private sectors. This new generation of employees is however unlike its predecessors. Having a different view of the world, they have redefined the meaning of success both on personal and professional levels, leading to misunderstandings among the different generations working together. Therefore, are they truly ready for the workforce or should we rather ask whether the workforce is ready for them?
Two magistrates have resigned from the judiciary to enter politics. Both are standing as candidates for the first time in the very fiefdom of the opposing leaders. It’s a major and daring step in their lives but Soodesh Callichurn and Raj Pentiah nonetheless trust their convictions. The fact that their opponents are none other than of Navin Ramgoolam and SAJ respectively does not dwindle their enthusiasm.
