We are God’s Children

God’s Children

We possess the strength to beat a Diamond in our hearts
We will win, we will accomplish, and we will wipe off worries
With god’s blessings, anything can be ours
If God is on our side, then who can stand against us?

— APJ Abdul Kalam

This poem was composed by the late Dr APJ Abdul Kalam for young children to inspire them and to make them dream. To quote the great man, “Dream is not something you see in your sleep, dream is something that does not let you sleep.” The world today mourns the death of this great soul. Thank you for your contribution to mankind and for making us dream.

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.
