In Bitter Animosity, With love The Cross and The Voice
My cross gave you a voice. The voice for you
To talk, speak, dialogue, confer on all fronts
On common ground we agree to agree, agree to disagree
Beyond the seas united we are; your voice is our voice
The Little Star and Key among the Great
A pride we share despite our differences
Why do you want to shut me up now? Perplexing!
My services air and brighten the dark side of the coin
Bring melody to life, many hardships alleviated
We have same aim – the betterment of all
Our partnership is long-lasting under the umbrella
“There`s room under the sun for everyone” said the Mahatma
The right to be is equally yours and mine.
But if you do gag my voice now, what choice do you give me?
“Will you be able to earn my cross later?”
Dr Mala Modun-Bissessur
Mauritius Times ePaper Friday 7 October 2022
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.
