Hello Mauritius – How are we doing this summer! if you are from coastal areas we know that you must be surely grilling yourself to get that tan, if you are in port-louis you could have fainted with the heat and humidity, but end of the day have you bought your grocery for your home while going back home, don’t tell me you were not able to coz the shops were closed by 5 PM.
Do anyone atleast remember that HRDC of mauritius started with the campaign called 24/7 in mauritius. Well they even stated in couple of mediums that its the “capsule for the mauritius economy”. We are surely not convinced that its so far not been a “Capsule for Mauritius Economy” in positive side, but on negative side it could have left with so many millions in drains.
It was really a good push from HRDC to start the culture of 24/7, but according to our observations, Mauritian culture is really lazy and louzy to be part of the culture. Just to talk about the round up of the 24/7 , we observed nothing special, it was more or less like a carnival event in mauritius. People gathered to one particular location where ever this event was happening.
What was 24/7 to our understanding was the culture where people would go and do the grocery purchase, people can go and buy a car, go around the town and do window shopping or shopping, where you get the public transport facilities and many other things. I feel really sad, that mauritian business community people dont want to improve their business which would surely build them to grow their profits. We in mauritius have the very dirty habit of comparing us with everyone around the world. But we as a Mauritians never would criticize our own thing assuming what ever they are doing is the best in the world, we take hundred surveys, spend millions of rupees copying. Its like in IT language what microsoft does for its Operating System – Copies everything from MAC, LINUX and end of the day MS will have the bugs from very first day and the product is crashed.
