Ambassador Vijay Joypaul

We mourn Vijay, our brother in arms

We bonded at John Kennedy College

Where he looked after books helping the boys

Sail through pages of stupendous marvel.

Life split us but once more together years

Later at Foreign Ministry he shared

– An astute mind and a prodigious pen –

His extensive knowledge of world affairs

In a country where light is snuffed or dimmed

His stood at the crossroad of East and West

A colossus who had nothing to prove

Also a sage who calmly showed the way.

I may be mourning now but here you are

In our midst telling us not to grieve!

Joseph Tsang Man Kin

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.
