Why is there racism in Mauritius?

Because it is a multi cultural society, it is very difficult for many races to live together when they have different beliefs and rules; this is a global phenomenon not only in Mauritius but all over the world you will find racism but luckily here people can live peacefully, conflicts arise surely but they are not big deals most of the time (eg v/s Israel, South Africa, Ireland etc). Peace will come when people learn to respect each other, learn to appreciate the differences between them, I for one I'm proud to be mauritian :)

Is takeaway food becoming more popular than cooking at home these days?

For one, with more women out working and sometimes doing overtime too it makes sense to grab something on the way back home rather than cook when you feel dead tired. Second thing I believe is that most people are now in a better position to enjoy getting a takeaway than cook as they have more money, I even know people who have to buy food outside simply because they do not have a proper kitchen and everything that goes with it, and well eating places are kind of mushrooming in Mauritius which is very tempting also. So I guess that it really depends on the situation but as the trend of life gets better, you want to go for what’s easiest right :)

How to use My Chinese Driving licence in Mauritius? Can you tell me the procedures?

Hello Jimmytan, you might want to check out the traffic branch of the Mauritius Police Force for more info:
but like mentioned above, you can drive for a month with your Chinese license, then it's better to get a Mauritian one if you plan on staying in Mauritius for a long time, or get an international one.
It's always a good idea to bring a copy of your passport for legal matters, 2 passport size photographs, your occupation permit or contact the police headquarters in Port Louis for more information.

The Mauritian Education system is failing the young people of the country

True – too much emphasis on the academic aspect of education, I have always found this wrong, people are different, if they do not excel in something they should be allowed to try something else, why not introduce some pottery classes, music, cooking, agriculture etc, creativity is an important part of the educational system that the Mauritian system does not consider at all.
National exams at form 3? Now that does not make any sense to me apart being more stressful to students, 2 years later you have the SC exams, then 2 years later again, HSC, if you believe that having an exam at form3 will prepare students for SC exams, why, the next thing you will hear is that you are having national exams at form 1 to prepare students for the form3 exams.
A total lack of materials in schools, overhead projector, videos, educational excursions etc make lessons more interesting, you will find such things in private schools mostly, if the government/PSSA is investing in education, why not do it thoroughly and go for things that will help students.
The way of teaching itself is not very appropriate, mostly because most of the Mauritian teachers have secured their jobs based on who they know up the ladder, I know this is harsh but true. Most of the teachers do not even have proper degrees to teach or even PGCEs, teaching is a job that demands a lot of responsibility, you have to know what you are doing and how you are doing it, you have to train your staff to reach the level that you expect them to have or employ people who are worth it.
False – whatever you say, education is free.
You get social help at all levels, books and school paraphernalia, university scholarships etc.
The educational level is quite high be it at secondary or tertiary level.
Maybe I am biased, but I can see mostly all of the flaws that the educational system has, I have been to a private school, worked in an international school and my sister studied in a S.S. school and you know these three educational systems are just so different for a small island like Mauritius. I wonder if it would not make sense to carry out a national survey about the educational system of Mauritius and make amendments based on what people expect their kids to get or what kids want to get as an education.

You also have the Dogeh trail in Port Louis or even la citadelle, else you have a number of nature reserves all over the island or you can even try out some old battered paths to mountains but make sure that you have your compass on you :)

Using Internet whilst on holiday in Mauritius

If you only need internet connection for email and simple browsing then you should probably get the USB key or go to areas where you can get wifi connection but the connection would not be great if you intend on downloading games and stuff, you would be better off using the internet connection in a cyber cafe for things more bulky then.

Is an air conditioner a necessity these days?

I believe that all of those who live in Port Louis should have access to an AC, this is where it really kills in summer but not everyone can afford it and well you kind of get used to the heat over time so it is not such an issue once you have spent years and years with it, for instance I live in Port Louis and I am not affected by the heat at all during summers (but I would love to have a heater during the winter days lol).

What do you think of corruption in Mauritius? Why do we have to bribe people in authority to get things done?

Corruption is a global phenomenon still it seems that the level of corruption in Mauritius is much wider than its actual size. I believe that the real problem of corruption in Mauritius is because of the number of different ethnic groups and each group wants to protect his own religious group; so it does not really matter whether you have the qualifications or have the ability to do something, if you come from the right ethnic group and know someone from this ethnic group in a higher position, you will be successful in whatever you intend on getting done.
As far as politicians go, they are after all politicians, once they are where they wanted to be, they forget the promises that they made. Period.

Writing an essay that stands out

Many people do not like to write down an essay let alone one that stands out. Very often we find ourselves going round in circles in trying to jot down some ideas and make it into something that makes sense. There is no magical way to write down an essay but handling the language itself is a pre-requisite and for that the only solution is to read a lot. Through this you build a solid backbone for yourself to make your ideas flow smoothly and this will surely pave the way to A+ essays in the long...

Fishing in Mauritius

Surrounded completely by water, Mauritius is an angler’s dreaming place and because the island is small in size, movement from one place to another is very easy and so you can move from the north of the island to fish in the south in no time at all. The water is rich in fish but care is recommended while fishing on your own as there are numerous poisonous fishes that can be fatal if eaten. The catch however depends on weather conditions, time, temperature etc and so will be different from day to...

Pregnancy - What happens from conception to birth

It’s a common misconception when people say you are pregnant for 9 months, in reality it is 10 months or 40 weeks. The pregnancy is broken up into three trimesters the first trimester is weeks 1-12, the second trimester is weeks 13-28 and the third trimester is weeks 29-40. In most first pregnancies the baby will not be born before or on the due date, in fact most first pregnancies result in the baby going overdue. No health care provider will ever let you go over by more than 12 days; you will ...

Mauritius Shipping

Shipping is the transport of goods (parcels above the size of normal letters) from one place to another by land, water or air. Shipping can be done by truck, train, ships or planes; shipment by planes is more expensive than the three other means but whether it is by ship or plane, the cargos still have to be transported to the destination by trunk. With globalisation, shipping is now an important business for the transport of materials from one country to another whether it is for settlement or ...

Islets of Mauritius

Mauritius itself is some 1865km2 in size yet it is also surrounded by a number of smaller islets each one different and unique in its own way. There are 49 islets surrounding the larger mainland many of which have been able to retain some of the pristine environment Mauritius once had but lost due to settlement.

As the expression to be dead as a dodo rightly points out, the dodo has been wiped away from the surface of the earth. Found solely in Mauritius, the big flightless bird became extinct in the 17th-18th century and relatively few evidence apart from bones suggest its existence. Ancestors of the bird from the pigeon family are thought to have arrived on the island in the past and evolved in a predator free environment with plenty of food which led it to lose its ability to fly. The dodo is used as...
