Une bouteille à la mer

Pour celui qui cherche des amis

Mais n’en trouve pas,

Une vue basse n’est pas chose si grave.

Qu’importe que cette ligne couchée sur papier

Subisse le sort d’une feuille dans la tempête

Ou d’une bouteille à la mer!

La vie est un long cheminement

Qui débute le matin,

Sur une route bordée de rêves et d’illusions,

Et qui aboutit la nuit

Devant un mur infranchissable d’incompréhensions.

An Appeal

Dear Reader

65 years ago Mauritius Times was founded with a resolve to fight for justice and fairness and the advancement of the public good. It has never deviated from this principle no matter how daunting the challenges and how costly the price it has had to pay at different times of our history.

With print journalism struggling to keep afloat due to falling advertising revenues and the wide availability of free sources of information, it is crucially important for the Mauritius Times to survive and prosper. We can only continue doing it with the support of our readers.

The best way you can support our efforts is to take a subscription or by making a recurring donation through a Standing Order to our non-profit Foundation.
Thank you.
