Why I am in Love with my President…

Why I am in Love with my President…


Generally I would consider Mauritius Presidency as being a useless, irrelevant function, as a political reward for some good and faithful political agent or prominent party exec.

EarthDay 2015 – Let’s Show We Care

EarthDay 2015 – Let’s Show We Care


Let’s Reduce our Footprint

Billions of tiny actions that can make a major change…

Earth Day is THE day in the year, when one should take time to reflect on one’s capacity at reversing adverse effects of one’s liability on our planet’s health. It may seem presumptuous to many, to imagine that an individual act will count in a broader picture. But more and more each day, we are getting to better understand how simple human habits like eating, travelling or buying, to say the least, add up to a global bill that weakens the Earth in its capacity at harbouring more than 6 billion human beings.   Continue reading

Beautiful Mauritius… Some more food for thought

Ameeksha Dilchand is one of my Top 10 Women of 2014. She, who I call the Perfect Ambassadress, is one of the most iconic figures of the Mauritian pageant industry. She started as a participant and ended up last year as an organiser.

This year, she pursues her actions against autism and she stepped into politics. Knowing her wits, guts and righeousness, I’ll bet on her capacities at going far out to become an unmissable beacon for the entire Mauritian nation.

Ameeksha is, to my eyes, one these young Mauritian ladies packed with what I dare to call “Valeurs du Mauriciannisme” (values of the Mauritian way of Life). Continue reading

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


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.

7 Mythes du Vagin

7 Mythes du Vagin


Si Jean Ferrat chantait  la femme est l’avenir de l’homme, il n’en demeure pas moins vrai que la condition féminine aura beaucoup souffert de l’ignorance, du machisme et de l’esprit obtus de certains penseurs. De la simple condition de souffre-douleur au statut d’hérétique sorcière, la femme est sans aucun doute la seule femelle du règne animal à avoir été persécutée par ses congénères de l’autre sexe. A bien y regarder, nous voyons que cette différence de comportement est surtout liée à cette intelligence dite supérieure de la race humaine.

A suivre : Les 7 mythes du vagin les plus tenaces, dont certaines traces existent encore dans notre société du 3e millénaire : Continue reading
