IndependenceDay

 

After an extended rainy weekend during which Mauritius dodged a bullet as Tropical Cyclone “Haliba” slowly disappeared, the Heavy Rain Warning was lifted just in time for today’s national celebrations. Tomorrow, the 12th March 2015, marks the 47th anniversary of Mauritius’ claim to independence from the British, and as per the tradition, a flag-raising ceremony is held across all schools on the day prior. Teachers and students had been preparing for this day of celebration for weeks: dance performances had been rehearsed, festive decorations had been ordered, the bouncy castles had been organised, the lawns had been cut last Friday … My heart almost sank as I looked outside through the window this morning. As the rain bucketed down, a wall of fog cascading down the mountain range, wind blowing a gale and a power cut thrown in for good measure, I wondered how this celebration would play out.
