Down 2013 memory lanes…

I took a stroll down memory lane today, Not to be saddened by the people that I have lost, but to be grateful for the memories that I shared with them, To see all of the great family and friends that I have had and still have in my life, To hear the voices and …

Alain Bertrand’s Top-10 Women of the Year 2013

Women have learned the language of power, an add-on to their emotional fluency and the skills required for the survival of the family–but the cultural rewards for their twin efforts are slim indeed. Thank you Alain Bertrand for your kind thoughts and the honour given to women’s laborious role and functions not because it is minute..but because it is gigantic.

Shab Peerally, Joelle Malecaut, Malala Yousafzai, Roshni Mooneeram, Melinda Gates, Meghna Raghoobar, Stephanie Baumert, Dorine Chukowry, Josie Lebrasse and to all incredible women, my salute 🙂

MY TOP 10 WOMEN of  2013

While the curtains fall on 2013, I wish to reiterate my pleasure to list 10 women who have marked my spirits, here in Mauritius. This year, they are 11 to occupy 10 seats. Late, last weeks of 2013’s events have modified what I would have called an ordinary “cru”… an ordinary year. Globally, we mostly watched the awakening of Mauritian women being confirmed. There are healthy signs of them taking the lead with words, interviews and in one case, with silence. From my point of View, Mauritian Women will be decisive in 2014. Their role, in the coming year that could see snap elections being organized during late first semester, will be determinant.

Two foreigners stand in this year’s list. They could both have won the first place.

It's not just in Russia that people are doing nice things for one another, it's only because of the large usage of dash camera's in Russia that this video of helpful humans was compiled. We hope this inspires the world to have faith in humanity once more and to keep …

All i’ll say is LONG LIVE THE SON OF AFRICA, LONG LIVE MADIBA, LONG LIVE NELSON MANDELA !

We fight not for glory nor for wealth nor honours; but only and alone we fight for freedom, which no good man surrenders but with his life. Reviewing #NelsonMandela’s autobiography! In fact, everyone should do the same. Mandela is not just an icon to be remembered today but that of an eternal man of principles …
