IT and Mauritius

IT is well in our norms and anchors so firmly in our daily activities that it has become difficult to fancy one day without using IT whether it is your digital alarm clock, mobile phones, INTERNET or even your gadget loaded James Bond car.

Open IT wanted to find out how the Mauritian population is living with so many IT products.

“Jai decouvert L’informatique assez tard parceque mes parents navaient pas les moyens de m’offrir des gadgets informatique. Mais la je pense que je ne peut pas m’en passer vue les differents avantages que l’informatique nous offre dan la vie tels que Facebook, le portable, et aussi les gadgets de musique.”



Cindy,  35 years old

Housewife, Curepipe

“Franchement je suis un peu embetee que l’informatique netait pas aussi courant que cela quand jetais plus jeune.  Jaurais envoyer des textos au lieu de jouer avec les poupees (rires!)

Arshika, 24 Years old

Bank Teller, Port- Louis

“ I love IT so much.  I am always with wires all round me to keep me music –live either on my mobile or my ipod.  Am constantly logged on various sites as twitter or facebook or other social websites and now I have also bookmarked your website (ED:  I think that IT should be more accessible for example INTERNET Connection should be less expensive.”

Roshan , 35 years old

IT Educator, Flacq

“Being an IT Educator I cannot go against IT but what I fear personally is that movies like iRobot or Terminator do not become a reality because IT is moving too fast and IT is in some sense controlling our lives.  I would also like to mention that IT does cause serious health problems. These are for me the major disadvantages of IT  but on the overall IT simplifies our way of life but we should not overuse it.”


Maxime , 65 Years Old

Retired Police Officer, Pamplemousses

“Je ne m’en servais jamais de l’informatique car loccassion ne s’est jamais presenter mais jaurai aimer savoir comment manipuler le four a micro ondes.  Cela m’eviterai d’apeller ma femme a chaque fois que j’aurais  a me faire rechauffer quelquechose.  Mes enfants et mes petits enfants eux je les vois souvent et a chaque fois mem en train de jouer sur leur portable ou ecouter de la musique et le comble c’est que chaque fois qu’ils viennent me rendre visite ils en ont un nouveau modele.  Mais dites moi c’est vrai que linformatique ca bouge a cette vitesse la? Mais on depense beacoup avec ces choses la!”


Sarita,  29 Years Old

Accoutant, Terre Rouge

“Well if I was asked if I am for or against IT I would say against because one it’s not beneficial for our health and secondly we tend to spend too much on those products, licenses and gadgets. And for me if we had lived before without IT so we can afford to live without it even now so why squandering money like that?”


Alex, 17 years old

Student, Rose Hill

“Super l’informatique on fait ce qu’on veut et en plus on apprend beaucoup de choses.  Moi j’ai fait beaucoup de progress dans mes etudes grace a Linternet.  Mais il faut quand meme savoir l’utiliser.



Vicky, 19 Years old

“It’s really interesting.  And I think that it is contributing to making Mauritius a better place with lesser teenagers who adopt drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as a way of entertainment but more who embraces IT as a source of fun.”
