Ladies & Gentlemen,
Warm welcome to the most awaited Awards Ceremony of the Mauritian Web, the Yashvinblogs Awards 2014! Since several weeks, I was very enthusiast to host this third edition event which sounds encouraging, based on the good response for the past editions of 2012 and 2013! And with the general elections held a few weeks back, things got even more exciting! However, the awards ceremony got unfortunately postponed because of the cyclonic weather prevailing since the past few days.
Coming to the selections of winners, you might probably guess that it was not an easy job to draw this final list from the numerous nominees in the different categories. Yes, this same dialogue is repeated over and over again for each award ceremony or competition. For this reason, this year’s jury was quite special : A selected number of Facebook members as well as the executive board members of the blog had that exciting task of choosing the right winners for each of the categories.
Without losing any more time, let’s discover our winners!

Movies which got cancelled
It is interesting to note that the production of several movies have been directly influenced by the outcome of the general elections of the 10th December 2014. It is so unfortunate that this has halted the production of the following movies, which could actually be best-sellers :
- Touch me if you Can – Genre Adult (Visa 18R)
It tells the story of a prime minister who made head and tail to become the President of a country. With complete immunity, the president could do whatever he wanted. Private jets and Rolls Royce were only some of his luxuries. However, all his dreams shattered when he got thrown to jail to pay for his sins.
- Scandal No 10 – Genre Drama
The story of an old lady who wanted to influence the electors by proposing bribes to the electorate. However, a courageous elector recorded her to expose her deeds to the media. A complete shame to the party. The untold secret in the story is all about the relationship of that elector with the old lady.
