A NATION OF VIRGIN TARTS

A NATION OF VIRGIN TARTS

According to the Rigveda, Indra, Agni and Soma are three important divinities who consume a drink called soma copiously and the worship of Soma is associated with the consumption of that drink which is made from a plant called soma. What is soma plant? No one is sure but there is a belief that it could be cannabis /Indian hemp /marijuana /gandia. Soma is also known as bhang.
In Mauritius, bhang and gandia are associated by many Hindus with certain religious rituals – Divali, Holi and Shivratri. Authorities prefer to look away and not see.
The hullabaloo in connection with Nad’s leader is a clear indication that virgin tarts abound in our country.
We should know that alcohol and tobacco are much, much more dangerous and yet they are legal drugs and prohibition of gandia has simply forced it underground into the black market. A lot of time, money and energy go into repression and is wasted. Moreover this allows for the alarmingly growing rate of consumption of synthetic drugs. Repression has simply not worked anywhere in the world.
Bold decisions are what we need. NOT DECRIMINALISATION BUT LEGALISATION.
Remember also that gandia has curative virtues for certain pathologies.
Virgin tarts, please abstain from reading this.

Mama-Papa, kreater liniver,
Zot finn donn nou enn zarden espesial
Me nou finn fer li vinn enn simitier
Akoz nou finn vinn gourman leker sal.

Ti’ena plas pou nou, pou fler ek zwazo;
Ti’ena varyete ek diversite
Ki ti fer lezot dan lesiel lao
Boude, moulougande, dekonserte.

Linet dolar lor lizie bar regar;
Anpes nou konpran bote divan nou.
Ego-gourmandiz pe nouri vantar;
Gonfle mesanste dan lespri zalou.

Nou pe plant pwazon dan karo Mamon;
Nou nouri lamor dan poumon zanfan;
Piyaz fer fraka dan tou lorizon
Parski lespri Mamon divan-divan.

Papa-Mama kreasion, gid nou pa;
Ed nou pou nou sanz nou manier fatra;
Ed nou derasinn laliann fos karrma
Ki finn fil partou dan nou douniya.

Mama-Papa lalimier, fer tou kler
Pou ki nou reysi trouv sime meyer.
Pardonn nou erer; efas nou maler
Pou ki nou zanfan dime konn boner.
