Mauritius Island is not just about stunning beaches, the Sun, summer, beautiful sights, amazing food, delicious fruits, a rich folklore, a mix of cultures, hospitality and the “Paradise Island” that is portrayed on postal cards, describing perfect spots for tourists to spend their holidays. Since 1968, at the occasion of the Independence Day on the 12th of March, our National Anthem is heartily sung in every corner of the Island: “As one people, as one nation, in peace, j...

Hello! I am so sorry as I have been absent from VOY for a month. This being due to very hard times right now. I needed to gather myself in order to do my best and I'm back and ready. Due to all the things going on right now I've learned many things. The main one is that you can't fight pain with pain.

There are certain small creatures, they are wisest of the wise. They know how to CLIMB (Change Little Into MegaBucks). Let us take a quick tour on one of them, the ANTS.

They are easily identified by their elbowed body and distinctive node-like structure that forms their slender waists. Ants, frail as they are, change little into megabucks by getting in plenty of food for the winter. They have also mastered the...

The words sustainable development appear quite often when we talk about our community and nation and our world. It is very important that we also understand them completely.

I am writing this post as I sit in a night train, on my way to another province in my country called Jogjakarta. I’m passing a city called Cirebon. So when this post is published, I will probably have arrived at Jogjakarta and perform my task there with my friends. You will read another story of my thoughts, or so you can say, a story from my heart. It is so dark outside. It is about 9:45 p.m and every passenger in this train is busy with his or her own things, and some of th...
