Cavadee 09 | Kaylason



Today i went to Kaylason (The big kovil in St-Croix to help friends distribute juice to those pilgrims who walk for such a long distance.


As all Mauritians know, they pierce their body with pins.. hang lemons and lots of other stuff  and walk. They inflict suffering to their physical body in order to purify themselves(correct me if i am wrong).


So i stood there.. and seriously! more than 100 of those cavadee they carry passed in front of me. so obviously i took a lot of pics! You can view the album below.


Here are some pics summarizing the event:






















They have to go three times around this kovil before they can relieve themselves from their cavadee.

Cyclone Warning Class 2 in Force in Mauritius


I was in the Communications Skills Class and it was nearly 4pm(time to end the class), and Some guys came from outside and said its class 2, the lecture ends here. Damn!! Couldnt they have come earlier?? nevertheless… the lecture was damn interesting!


So i walked in the rain… as much as i could. My friends say i am crazy.. i dragged them too.. 🙂 In front of Mc Donalds, i saw a girl, she resselbled a girl that i knw , and i touched her hand.. and damn! it wasnt her!!


Came home… after an adventurous journey home…


Some questions:


When its Cyclone Warning Class 2, Schools and Uni release because Class 2 is considered as dangerous. Right? So yeah.. release the students in the dangerous weather itself! 🙂 Wot an intelligent decision!! Franc Franc tou!!

(not a judgement… just lighting room for improvement..)


Outcome : All Schools and Uni’s are released simultaneously, with consequence :  MASSIVE TRAFFIC JAM!!! When i saw MASSIVE,  I MEAN MASSIVE. From rochebois to port louis. Cars are moving like snails.


And finally when i came home! The joke of the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Check this out!




Seriously?? How was this supposed to inform me while i was in class??


Its nice that the use mass mail to communicate to students.. but come’on!!

its ridiculous!



For those who come from Mars, The name of the Cyclone is Gael and its coming head on MRU. I say, come baby come..



And Miss Chaya says i cant shine… there’s cyclone.. But i guess i’l continue to shine! in ur msn contact list! 😀 Jai ho!

As you all know football is not played on paper.. its played on that green thing out there in front of you and I (the pitch). And whatever History says, a football match is played in the pitch and is not over until the referee blows the final Whistle. A Dream Fixture in the Theatre Of dreams. A Match not to Be missed at any cost!





Now lets praise our Dear National Television Channel a bit.

When was the last time you had the chance to watch a nice football match on TV? Any idea? oh… maybe it was the Champions League final! and after that?? u don’t remember ? right? That’s our Dear Channel! The Hype themselves so much! and still.. shit!

Whenever there’s a big fixture coming up, they get so silent about football.. it feels like they don’t want the populations to know there a big match of football upcoming. They say nothing about it! Not just that. Several times I’ve noticed, after the match they don’t even show the goals and match review, they just say, the score, and they are finished with you!

There was a time when such fixtures were being played, you’d sit with your dad, uncles and cousin! All of them dressed up in their respective teams T-shirt(or same color T-shirt). And with a little “Gajack” spend some family time together! But nowadays if you want to spend such family times, you HAVE TO GET satellite channels.(except if you are a Celtic FC fan) But not everybody can afford that. Can they?


I agree that the cost of these matches are so high, but then, they should not make long speeches and hype themselves! DAMN!! MAURITIANS DONT WANT TO SEE CELTIC FC Matches!!! WE WANT MAN U! LFC! CFC!! even sunderland will do.. not some unknown clod from an unknown league with unknown player! I hope they do understand why we watch football one day.




So Lets com back to our calm state. 🙂

HSC 2008 Leak Aftermathh : No Reseat, the experts’ decision

THE decision all of you were waiting for has been finally taken. There will be no reseat. That’s what the “academic committee of experts” from Cambridge decided. However, the leaks happened, There is no denials about that. Hence the solution is as follows :

  • Adjust the Marking scheme so that every student is treated equally.
  • This will mainly affect physics paper2 and paper 4. It has been said that most of the question are “low ability” question, except for some 5 questions. It is emphasized that the “higher ability” questions were untainted these experts said that these question were sufficient to make the difference between the students.
  • Note that it has been decided that the leaks for maths and chemistry were negligible. Hence normal correction will take place for these.

So, first of all, i would like to wish a happy holiday to all Science students! No stress! 😀

However, does everybody agree with this decision? Note that this decision was voted in unanimity. Sure its not a perfect decision but, i think its the best decision. To be fair to everybody. Nothing has been revealed on the NEW MARKING SCHEME.

Drop your comments,. vote and tell your friends to come and vote. So that we get he answer of the majority without reading all the comments.

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Cups of Coffee

I got this while checking my old livemail. Instead of fwding it to everyone and getting deteled from tushals inbox even without being read. Thought i’d be better to share it on my blog! So here’s some phylosophy for you all! do read it! It makes sense, and u dnt even have to fwd it! 😛



When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee. 

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. 

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar He shook the jar lightly.  The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. 

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous ‘yes.’ 

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. 

The pebbles are th e other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.

The sand is everything else—the small stuff. ‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you. 
‘Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house. the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.’

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ 

The coffee just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.’
