Mentalité voisin Moricien

Yashvin from writes :

Nops, c pas ene association ni ene groupe politik ki fek lancé!

Mais ene mentalité dimoune ki pu mari difficile pu changé, sirtout si li ene moricien….

Most tourists talk only good about Mauritians, our way of living, kind hearted and above all, very friendly and easy going…

However the inside story can indeed be very different, am sure many of us must have experienced the bad habit of some of our fellows who make abuse of their power and the fear of people.

Lets come to a very common example….

I wont say much, let the pictures relate everything….

Facts about some Mauritians (including for the one in above example):

  • Some of them prefer to leave their car right on the road itself.
  • Nobody dares to say anything to certain people because “li ene conseiller village”
  • Some taxi drivers think that they are the most experienced drivers in Mauritius
  • Tomorrow he will put his car again on same spot : “Chassez le naturel, et il revient au gallop”
  • Despite knowing that the road is narrow, some mauritian drivers will accelerate just to force you to park aside to let them pass!
  • I personally stopped the police vehicle to ask them to talk to the guy!
    ( weps, parfois zotte aussi faire zotte travail kouma bisin )

btw, certains dimounes pas garde zotte loto dans zotte garage, attention ki garage la so lifetime fini vite 😛 haha!

Any examples on your behalf???

Perhaps A short incident/story???

  1. Most car owners think they own the road… 😦

    But I’ll also like to point out about motorcycle users. No doubt that they are among the most annoying things on the road (behind slow drivers), they also have absolutely zero parking sense! (perhaps even -ve)

    How many times have you seen those stupid people parking their big motocycles right on the road!?!!?!? & mind you in all cases, there’s loads of space on the pavement! I never understood why they do it… :@

    carrotmadman6s last blog post..I’m a PC. & I’m not a stereotype!


  2. Motocycle users..Well, they of course own the public road..they can also zig zag and do all what they want and no one{authorities}will tell them anything..

    And some drivers are just plain stupid

  4. [re=25342]carrotmadman6[/re]: I realli thought the pavement was for pedestrian use and the two-wheelers should be on the road..
    The prob arises when you mix them up. Hahah

  6. Nice one mate.,

    Well, I’ll relate one comment that I hear quite frequently which really hit on my nerves. I randomly hear some people whether strangers, friends and even members of my family say “Mentalité morisien sa” or “Morisien sa li pa pu sanze li” or something similar to that. Well this really p….s me off as I am a Mauritian too and that are not things that I do nor that I tolerate. These comments are used as an excuse so as to normalise something bad which was/is done as if its something commonly done by all (generally bad habits). Well these kind of comments exist as some shows real lack of respect towards others. e.g. the car owner you’ve just pictorised. Its also true to say that these comments do exist because some of us are too tolerant. The odd smoker having a 555 in the bus and rarely does anyone dares to challenge him. Or the other one who thinks takes the road for his ashtray. Call it lack of education, respect or whatever but unless one does not start challenging the other. These small negatives that pollutes our day to day living wont change.



  7. excuse me i do no agree to all which u said in your blog. i agree le gro pork pa ti bizin met so loto rouze lor chimin.

    mai mentalité moricien?? wht do you mean? you are mauritian as well ( until preuve du contraire) meaning to mentaliter dan bez? meaning you DO not respect the right of others? meaning to 1 pork?? ( no offences to those who nana pork) …. or you want to insult me? non nest pa is your answer! so please pa generalise 1 cas for all mauritians. zamais to pu tand 1 australien degrade so pays ni 1 european so please avoid doing this to your country. i certainly hate this when i hear ” aio b moricien comme sa li sovaze…’ i am mauritian as well and I AM NOT A SOVAZE.

    Mauritianly yours,



  8. carrotmadman6….. do you drive?

    pavements are meant for pedestrians not for motorbikes or any other vehicles. sinon kot pedestrians pu marcer si ena motorbikes lor pavement? lor chemin lerla bez mort?

    pavemently yours,



  9. [re=25343]Daks[/re]: alalala so toutou li galoup der toi??? moi mo jir chuli chuli 🙂

    enfin pa pu sanzer sa mentaliter la 😦 you came across 1 of the villagers..btw to koner komien villagers ena?? 😦 dunno kan pou sanzer???


  10. [re=25358]Avishna[/re]: my dear friend, thnks pu to comments…

    Keep in mind that I do respect ur opinion, but when others and myself say “Mentalité moricien dans beze”, we do not refer to every Mauritians…

    Its a way of speaking, but just to show you that I am not blaming every mauritian, I quote from above:
    1. the bad habit of some of our fellows who make abuse of their power and the fear of people.
    2. Facts about some Mauritians

    Perhaps if everyone in your neighbourhood are much civilised, every drivers stop to allow you to cross the road on pedestrian crossings, every driver is kind towards you, everyone with whom you deal is really polite with you, then, and only then, Its your luck and every mauritian will envy you.

    [re=25368]Yasir[/re]: This does not only apply to villagers dear friend, sinon koume sa, bane la villes ti pu bane paradis, et personne pas ti pu reste dans villages, dont u think so?

    To end this comment, I would like to quote someone’s comment from my facebook profile:
    There’s no such thing as the ideal mindset; just different mindsets that emerged from different contexts. If that was not the case, then just imagine a uniform world with no plurality – depressing.

    Can u imagine that?

    Pena narien a faire avec la ligne jaune, si dimoune la pena respect pu lezotte usagers de la route, b zamais li pu comprend, meme si ena gros panneau No parking devant so la porte.

    Am sorry for the following expression, but its the truth:
    “Zamais pu cpv faire la queue lichien vine droite”


  17. kisanla in cose la ville village????
    t totalement a coter de la plaque.
    arrete complexer on village ek la ville, to conclusion “Par example, ‘Bhooks en haut, bein, li reste same l’endroit ki twa (ki ene la ville)” is totally out of context n cheap. mayb to gagne honter ki to reste dan village a coz sa most of your arguements end up with this stupid conclusion. mayb to mentaliter dan bez.

    Mo p cose mauritian ( dimounes ki vivent dan la ville ek village). when you dont have any arguements most of the time silence is the answer.
    ‘kine affirmer ki moriciens pena valeur…’ – this is a serious offence and i cant believe personne pena the guts to make you stop writing rubbish on the net.

    yashvin pena valeur
    yashvin so mentaliter dan bez
    yashvin is simply 1 sovage.

    would you like if i say that to you?


  18. “Zamais pu cpv faire la queue lichien vine droite”

    TO sire ton bien dire dialogue la?pa lichien ki servi..mais 1 lot animal..^_^

    Quote from avishek:”bon si mo lisien boxer ine deriere toi li pa mo fot parceki toi ki saryer 1 ton lavian r toi!”

    Oh come on.In which century are you living?L’age des caverne?
    Dude, we have laws which protect us.Duuh..Some people are just……….
    No comments.

    It’s your fault if your dog attacks some one anywhere except in your yard.ITS YOUR FAULT.
    Go and check the law.If you have a loose dog and that dog bits some one who’s walking on the road or runs after some one walking on the road irrespective of what that person is carrying, you’re to be blamed as the dog’s owner.You can even be sued and asked pay compensation and/or you can even be fined.

    Want some more clarification?I give you an example.

    I have 4 dogs at home.If by mistake my gate is left opened, my dogs will,without any doubt, go on the road to run after people.In case, my dogs bite some one on the road,the police will come to give me a visit.They will usually see how well your yard is enclosed and how come the dogs went outside.In the later case, it is surely negligence on my behalf since I did not close the gate.And I will be entitled to legal proceedings against me.
    {usually to pay a fine If I’m sued under criminal law or to compensate the victim in case I’m being sued in civil law.}

    @othes–>in case you’re walking on the road, and any loose dogs run after you, feel free to report the case to both the police and MSPCA.

    ena dimoune faire comment dire banla ki mari dan pays la…not referring to anyone.
    Disclaimer:if you feel the last sentence is directed to you, I shall assume no responsibility since I am not targeting anyone in particular.

    Duuh..I hope some people knows what are disclaimers..^_^

    Tushals last blog post..Unwritten Rules oF University


  19. Some people are just unbelievable. they know that they are to be blamed.but they won’t accept the fault.

    In case of the red car in the above picture, the guy should had some common sense to know that the road is a 2 way traffic road and by parking his car there, prevents other cars from passing.

    ki pou faire yashvin..not all fingers in our right hands are similar..ena ceki longue..ena ceki courte..comsa meme..ena tou qualiter dimoune dan pays la..

    eh ban camion aka motocycle pe faire rambo lor koner quan sa ban dimoune la pou gagne some common sense..

  22. What about this one. I am walking and I see a lady coming. While walking we keep on coming closer. Just before we walked by each other. I give her a smile and greet her good morning. She does not reply back whether with a smile nor with a greeting. Same thing when you get in a lift no one greets morning nor bye. So unless I know someone personally it seems that I can’t talk to people in general. This attitude or whatever you call it is really sick.
