Nam Shun Fooy Koon

By Clifford Ng Kwet Chan 

Pendant deux longues années
Il manquait une inscription sur ta tombe
Au cimetière Nam Shun.
Pour cette faute Thérèse
J’implore ton pardon.
Grâce à l’épitaphe 
Que je viens de faire graver
Sur une tablette de marbre,
Le lieu où tu reposes
A pris une nouvelle apparence.
A présent tout souriant
Est l’aspect du caveau
Ceinturé d’arbrisseaux
Car la blancheur du marbre
Reflète l’éclat de la sépulture.

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.
