‘Opening of the International Conference on Contemporary Mauritius’

It gave me immense pleasure to associate myself with this conference on Contemporary Mauritius, organized by the Mahatma Gandhi Institute, in collaboration with the University of Technology, Mauritius and Mauritius Research Council. To-day for this international Conference, it was an honour and priviledge to have in our midst such eminent scholars as Professor Eriksen, Anthropologist from the University of Oslo, Professor Kothari from the University of Manchester and Dr Shivraj Sohur from Harvard Medical School who addressed some of the pertinent issues relating to Contemporary Mauritius.  Themes for the different panels covered all aspects of society, ranging from politics to culture, the economy, society and as well as the arts. These themes will be the backdrop to the subjects that will be addressed by some thirty other participants from MGI, UTM and MRC. I thank all the organizers, the participants from our local and foreign institutions and wish all of them fruitful deliberations.
