Le Mur du Silence

Combien j’aurais aimé

Qu’il y eût plein de rires retentissants

De bavardages criards

De discussions assourdissantes

De plaisanteries éclatantes

De dégustations bruyantes

D’agapes tapageuses

Et quoi encore?

Mais de grâce

Pas ce mur de briques

Que sont

Le chagrin

Le désespoir

La tristesse


La froideur

Le silence



La lassitude

Et l’indifférence absolue

Envers les repas

Que je dépose sans cesse

Par amour

Devant toi.

Clifford Ng Kwet Chan

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.
