Inter-college debate competition (WoW 2007)

July 5, 2007


I was invited to serve as the member of jury for the Inter-college debate competition (WoW 2007) organised by Infosys on the 27 June 2007. The topic of the debate was “Mauritius has the potential to operate at a higher level of the value chain in IT”. The proposing team was from Royal College Curepipe and the opposing team was from Dr Maurice Cure SSS. Both teams did extremely well. The RCC students were very good in terms of expressiveness, and voice and the Dr Maurice Cure students were very good in terms of arguments put forward. The debate in general was of very high quality. Congratulations to both teams.

Chinatown: Food and Cultural Festival

June 21, 2007

Have been to the Chinatown Port-Louis last week-end, Saturday night. The impressive response obtained from the members of the public for the last two years has prompted the organisers to hold this manifestation once again. This festival is a commendable initiative particularly as regards the promotion of Chinese cultural and traditional heritage, and show casing the Chinese rites and food diversity and at the same time reviving the old china town of the capital. It has become a must attend event.

See below some pictures (taken on Saturday night) for those who have not been able to attend: Chinatown roads, Heritage Court, Chinese Food etc…


IT Job Profiles in Mauritius – 2007

May 15, 2007


I have recently compiled a list of IT job profiles in Mauritius. These jobs are currently being undertaken by past UoM students in leading IT companies in Mauritius. The names of the persons and the company have not been mentioned for obvious reasons.  

This compilation gives prospective IT graduates an apercu of the duties and responsibilities that they will be called upon to take and the tools and technologies that they will experience with.  

I would like to thank all my friends and past students who have willingly provided these valuable information.    

Your feedbacks are welcomed.
