Though i have appreciated a lot the interview of the girl from a modest family who was veryy touching.. Congratulations to her ..
Having said that, i have come to think over the years about the hsc and specially about the scholarships. What is the use of the scholarship ?? Are the students eligible for the scholarships ?? meaning the laureats and all !
I happen to understand, that there should be some kind of competition ! but should that be specially for a scholarship !!
The scholarship should be for children from modest family ONLY and students should have to fill a form demanding if they are eligible or not! .. a family who can already afford paying rs3000- 4000 tuition fees for their kids, i cannot see why that kid, should now get money to go to university.. !! from the state !! and moreover, he wont even come back to mauritius!!
I, therefore appeal to the Government of the Republic of Mauritius and to the concerned ministries, the population would be very satisfied with it, shall the Government stop that injustice made to the children from modest family, who even doing the best with what they can. Even obtaining very good results, being in the 20 best of the National level, they still cannot aspire to go to the best universities. Because, Somewhere someone else who was damn spoonfed with tuitions got the laureat title and that chance.
I however do not deny the many sacrifices and merits of that rich family student, but the scholarships should be a gift of the Government to the Needy. Not a Gift to the well-offs of the society.
Hope Those Words do not fall into deaf ears.
Stop the hypocrisy !!
