Mother of 3 children, teacher, and writer. Shocked by the fact that young mauritians can't go to the books and culture in general because of there is no library here. And the bookshops are out of reach because of the price. A pocked book used to cost nine hundred rupees, medium mauritian salary is around 7,000 rupees. A pocket book cost 10% of a monthly salary. It a luxury good. Young mauritians don't get interested in books, culture.
