Me, Corona?


Neither here am I nor there
Not nowhere either 
But Everywhere Always
No eyes have I nor ears nor mouth nor nose
Pain I do not feel nor do I not feel
Neither do I have thought nor thought-less am I

Neither do I like nor do I dislike
Not to anything nor anybody
Am I attached or unattached
Nothing have I nor any desire
Neither poor am I nor rich
Duty I have none nor work do I do

No virtue have I nor vice
Neither do sin commiteth I nor good deed
Pain or pleasure happiness or sorrow
None do I have
The experiencer I am not nor the experience
No observer am I nor the observed

Born I was not
Die I do not
Mother father relative friend
I have not
Not teacher nor student am I

Your Corona
Not mine
Not me

Formlessness or form
Is. All
All. Is. I

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.
