Paris Attacks

It is around 9 pm in Paris on Friday 13th November. Gunmen armed with AK-47s land in several places in the 10th and 11th Arrondissements of the city where people have gathered for evening meals, a football match and a concert, amongst others. The gunmen come by car. They fire at random into the crowds. In some places, like the Stade de France where the Germany-France football match was being played, spectators are totally unaware that terrorists are targeting them. They simply fall under gunshots.

An Ancient Obsession with Wealth

-- Anil Gujadhur

There’s a “levée des boucliers” since mid-October about wealth and its accumulation. Especially, wealth which is unaccounted for. The public is keenly interested in it. It strongly suspects that there are a few possessors of significant amounts of ill-gotten wealth. It wants a clean-up. It is holding the assumption that the malpractice of accumulating ill-gotten wealth will cease after an anticipated clean-up.

Trou-O-Cerfs Is Saved !

Dr R Neerunjun Gopee

At least for now -, and we, the regular walkers and lovers of this piece of natural beauty in our little island hope that the 'now' means forever… in terms of man-years, not on the cosmic scale!

In fact, a petition had been prepared, circulated and signed by over 9000 citizens, to register our protest against a project of allowing food vendor stalls at Trou-O-Cerfs (TOC) along with light electric vehicles to take tourists around the rim. We have been relieved to learn that the Municipality of Curepipe has set aside the project in the wake of our petition to that effect, and we thank the mayor and councillors for their seeing the merits of this petition, and for the correct decision that they have taken to safeguard Trou-O-Cerfs.

-- TP Saran

Since last Friday the world news has been dominated completely by the terrorist attacks in Paris, displacing altogether from the radar the stunning electoral victory of Myanmar’s ‘Grand Lady’ and leader of the Opposition party National League for Democracy (NLD). This election was remarkable on several counts: it was the first openly contested one to be held after nearly 25 years of military rule (the outgoing ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party was militarily backed); the elections were judged to be free and fair; they took place peacefully; and the military acknowledged and accepted the people’s verdict without any protest.
