Terne, pâle et silencieux

Ceci est loin d’être un reproche

Toi qui admirais tant l’arc-en-ciel

pointant derrière les nuages

Qui faisais éclater de rire

des groupes d’amis

Qui aimais vider ta coupe de champagne

et porter une toast

lors des fêtes intimes.

Depuis que tu m’as quitté

en me laissant dans la solitude

tout est devenu terne, pâle et silencieux.

Clifford Ng Kwet Chan

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.
