Confucius a dit
Qu’il fallait témoigner
Du respect à nos vieux
Et rendre leur vie facile.
Aussi, quand j’étais petit,
Je suivais toujours ce précepte
En allant chercher leurs pantoufles
Pour mes parents
Et les déposer près du lit
Où ils dormaient.
Ces petits soucis quotidiens
C’est leur assurer
Une bonne nuit de sommeil.

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.
