Woman! You are mother! You are daughter!

You are your own mother, your own daughter.

And every day, you recreate the world!

You are the roots, the branches and the fruits!


Like a tree anywhere, there you will grow.

You are the home and you are your own home!

You are the anchor, you are the compass!

You are the Boat and you are the Ocean!


And when or where you stand, you are the rock!

And wherever you lie, you are the couch!

And where you choose to sit, you are the throne!

Mother of Mothers! O Mother of Life!


You are the Nile, the Ganges and Huang He!

You have no end! You are the beginnings!  

Woman! Mother!

Woman! Mother! Sister! Partner! Goddess!

You cover the whole range of our needs

Our want of affection and protection

Warm in your womb and secure in your heart! 


Woman! Sister! Partner! Half of Heaven!

You breathe life and purpose into our dreams !

Always by our side to back up our hopes!

You can give without end, unstoppable!


Woman! Goddess! You enlighten our lives

Like the warming sun and the soothing moon

Sweet as the rose and gentle as the breeze!

Our safe haven and our heaven on earth!


Woman! Mother! Sister! Partner! Goddess!

Woman eternal, there’s no life without you!

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.
