Mauritius have been locked down due to Corona-virus since 3 days. What are Mauritians feeling? Following numerous posts on Facebook, Mauritians are blaming the Prime Minister for not-closing the Mauritian border early enough. We, the common people, will not know the rationale behind the Prime Minister’s decision.
Other Mauritians are complaining about Mauritians not abiding by the lock-down rules: Photos at the supermarket show people queuing in close proximity to each other so as not to die from starvation. Can they be blamed for panic buying though?
Our ministers were boasting quite loudly that there were NO CASES of Covid-19 in Mauritius. I even believed them.
But there were! And the government even arrested the Administrator of a fake news Facebook page for spreading fake news. Who will arrest the Mauritian ministers for spreading fake news?
Fortunately, all the Internet Service providers have increased their data allowances so that Mauritians won’t be too bored at home. Playing video games, watching TV shows are a very popular activity. Other’s prefer reading books or trying new recipes. But the most popular activity seems to be forced house cleaning! How are you handling the situation?
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?
I just heard from the PM that they're renaming Cyber Tower 1 to Atal Bihari Vajpayee Tower soon. *cough* *cough* 🙄#Ebene #Mauritius
Vous êtes libres de voler combien vous voulez.
Voler en termes d’argent et voyages.
Vous êtes libres d’emprisoner quiconque vous questionne.
Vous êtes libres dans les bouchons routiers. Vos motards d’escorte font de la place pour vous. Vous êtes libre de vendre les plages Mauriciennes sans vous soucier où vont nager les Mauriciens. Donner nous du biryani, nous venons vous célébrer aux Champs de Mars.
Over the past 8 weeks, I’ve been attending the MIT GSL  programme for Mauritius. It has been an amazing journey. Our team won the Social Impact Award.
Energy demand is increasing yearly but energy supply is having a hard time to catch up in Mauritius. Our project consisted of using IoT devices to reduce energy wastage and to accelerate green energy adoption.
We investigated the greatest consumers of electricity in Mauritius and we found hotels to be among the culprits we hope to tackle. One of the reasons why saving energy is so difficult right now because users don’t know exactly how much each appliance is using. With the advancement of IoT technology and prices of the latter going down, we can now afford to measure the power consumption of each and every device in near real-time.
We can thus analyze the data and remotely turn-off appliances which are wasting energy.
Due to high demand with maintenance managers, we hope to provide water and gas monitoring solutions to detect leaks.
