I may not agree to the thought of a massive, blind uncontrolled bat cull in Mauritius, but what I dislike most are the downgrading comments from some down-looking, colonial-thinking tourists who see Mauritius as their legacy and its Fauna and Flora as their property.
Watching a bat eating a fruit from your 5-star hotel window, during your 5-day honeymoon, doesn’t make you a specialist of the bat cause. Neither does the fact of having left your country for decades makes you an absolute nature lover. One may have opinions, feel sad about the killing of animals or feel pain over some environmental injustice, but in any case, shall one have the right to treat Mauritians as a bunch of mindless idiots…
Just three years ago, grid-connected solar power in the country was less than 12 MW. By the end of 2011, India had acquired 190 MW in solar power generation capacity. By March 2013, that figure will grow five-fold to 1,000 MW under the Solar Mission targets alone… (source Business Today)
And Yes… Indeed…Indians are definitely NOT Stupid… And to our own shame we must admit : “Our Politicians and their Politically-nominated consultants are!”
On the 21st of December 2012, a mysterious Mayan calendar cycle will end… Who deciphered the exact content? Nobody knows. We only assumed that he knew his job and we decided to move with the flow !
But what is said about this calendar, is that there is NOTHING beyond b’ak’tun 13 (The 13th cycle)! By NOTHING, they did leave us to understand that… Absolutely NOTHING would remain… Not even the planet we live on!
Even b’ak’tun 14 would start as 18.104.22.168.0, on their calendars, on December 21, 2012
FACT ONE: We humans, we hate and fear Nothingness! Read More
Entre le concept visionnaire de Joel de Rosnay et l’état du MID (Maurice Ile Durable) en 2012, il y un gouffre aberrant ! Non pas parce que le peuple mauricien ne se sente pas concerné, mais bien par la volonté destructrice d’une clique politique, mafieuse et menteuse.
Le mercantilisme politique tire la nation mauricienne vers le bas, entraînant vers le fond, par la même occasion, l’image d’un pays en pleine crise d’identité écologique. Les sonnettes d’alarme tintinnabulent de toutes parts, mais nos dirigeants font la sourde oreille au mépris du bon sens et d’une certaine responsabilité citoyenne, voire même globale.

For how much it weighs, my answer is NO!
The way some murky capitalist system treats successful self-made men and women, especially in the innovative tech sector, is really indecent. Brilliant founder brains like Twitter‘s Dorsey, Vimeo‘s Lodwick, Google‘s Larry Page have gone down that lane. Even Charismatic Steve Jobs learned it the hardest way and more… during the past months, Facebook founder’s legitimacy has been and is still being questioned too.
Does that mean that Entrepreneurs cannot be leaders? Or is it because, and for reasons attached to outrageous financial greed, thinkers must make place for coin counters? Read More
The ecological footprint is a measure of human demand on the Earth’s ecosystems. It is a standardized measure of demand for natural capital that may be contrasted with the planet’s ecological capacity to regenerate. It represents the amount of biologically productive land and sea area necessary to supply the resources a human population consumes, and to assimilate associated waste.
An ecological footprint is the measure of how much of earth’s biological capacity is required by an individual, group, or activity.
While sustainability seems to be a very trendy and powerful term to utilize nowadays, we, in Mauritius, and especially at administrating levels, look like we still haven’t found the full grasp of the related fundamentals. Sustainability comes along with the obliteration of waste and wastage. Waste of time, energy and resources, mainly. Read More
