Some rambling thoughts…

Hiya guys n gurls…

Long time no hear… but pouf… could not find the time or did not have the heart… for some time there, I almost forgot I had a blog…

But, not to despair… here I am…

Well, since my last post and now, loads happened… new twists and turns… but it will take longer than one post to tell you ppl more about them…

I thought about blogging today koz Kervin and I are in relax mode… He is currently in the middle of a chess game (or a series of them… :s) , so i thought why nt a post??

Relax mode.. y?? Koz we have just come out of a test week during which we not only had to contend with common day-to-day stress but we also had to fight against a severe case of Torrential Rain. Incidentally, Wednesday 26 March will forever remain as a specter of bad luck for Mauritians not only because of heavy continuous rainfall which the Meteorological Station did not rightly forecast, but because the heavy torrential rain and subsequent floods brought about the death of four people, one of whom is a 14-year old girl.

Well, imho, these could have been avoided if the decision-makers (Government, Meteorological Station) in the country had taken the right decision at the right time. The right decisions being:

  1. Issuing a Torrential Rain Warning, early in the morning… so schools could close.
  2. or The Ministry of Education liaising with the Meteorological station and closing the schools anyway, event in the advent of no warning.

Lives were lost, because of a “faux pas” according to the President of Mauritius, a “faux pas” which in my opinion should not be repeated. The rains gave rise to lots of speculation, to the self-realization that even though Mauritius is said to be progressing towards a healthy economy, we have still loads of room for change…

Well, i followed the news these past few days… read the newspapers.. listened to the radio.. and came to the following conclusion:

that Mauritius has got the necessary Human Resources (geologists, hydrologists and more…) to bring about a stable climate monitoring system on the island, but dunno why the government does not enlist their services… at least he could listen to their ideas… instead of relying upon foreigners, who are in the first place not living on the island and do not have a real idea of l’étendue du problème (But am sure they can help anyways…). Fortunately, i have noticed that the current government (imho) reacts well to misfortunes… once a problem crops up, they work towards prevention of a repetition.. I hope same happens here.. and that they do not sleep on the job.

As for my tests, they were test-like… 😉 The results are awaited… I won’t complain koz this is just the start.. exams remain (at the end of this month)… and on top of it, projects are to be submitted in two weeks… May God help me! (and all others…).

Hey wat about my project?? U ppl know abt it??

Well, it consist of designing a programming language to be used to teach programming to beginners.. very challenging and very interesting… and hard… as is everything else… bt dear, that’s life ek nu p manz r li… i just hope my project partner and I manage to bring about a small change in this big world…. 😉

Anyways, today is simply respite for a grueling month ahead….

And to end, phdcomics.com and i am sure this gonna cheer up loads…

poor lecturers...

So.. gud luck to our lecturers…

N this is bye to you ppl.. Take care 🙂
