La Vie Est Un Tourbillon

Dans ce frêle habitat de l’humanité,

cette terre qui tourne,

la vie est un tourbillon,

où la lutte pour s’en dégager

commence dès la naissance.

Certains, à peine la lutte commencée,

trouvant la tâche ardue,

ne font aucun effort,


Ils se laissent emporter par les torrents

et sombrent dans l’abîme.

D’autres s’en sortent  ébréchés

ou couverts de blessures

qui se cicatrisent avec le temps.

D’autres perdent la raison,

ayant subi trop de chocs.

Très peu, hélas!

s’en sortent indemnes

par le grâce de Dieu.

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.
