When the Cyber Tower 1 of Ebene was built, it was a moment of pride for Mauritius. It was such a beauty and projected itself in the future. A cyber future.
Can Mauritius be called a Cyber Island? Maybe when viewed from a European perspective, it is still decades behind but in terms of Human Intellect, I must say Mauritius is a place where lots of computer geniuses are born and trained. We have local communities such as the MSCC which hosts a Developers’ Conference on a yearly basis.
Everything was going fine till our non-elected Prime Minister decided to open his mouth.
Why did he have to do that? I swear the first time I heard the name of “Atal Bihari Vajpayee Tower” was through a Facebook post of one of my friends announcing this nonsense decision. That name doesn’t resonate with a common Mauritian at all. I wouldn’t mind Dr Abdul Kalam though but who is this guy?
Why are we revering an Indian politician? Why do we have to revere politicians at all?

I’d like the Mauritian rupee notes and coins to have all faces removed and have pictures of monuments instead like the Euro. We just went a step backwards. Share if you agree.
