Hard to digest!

For how long Mauritians will bear the ever increasing cost of living.? After the nth increase in various commodities, flour and bread henceforth weigh heavy in the the household’s basket. The traditional pain maison which was sold at rs 2.15 is now available at rs 2.65. The baguette is now priced at rs 5.50, a rise of rs 1.0. Flour per pound is selling at rs 6.90 It is to be expected that following the price increase in flour, derivatives such as dholl puri, ‘roti’, cakes will cost higher. I remember getting 10 pairs¬† of dholl puri with rs 30., but now with this same amount, i can get only 3 pairs,¬† with less dholl. The association of bread manufacturers shows some relief with the decision taken by the government but nonetheless expected a higher increase.

I think it’s high time that i bake my own bread. Some flour. yeast and water and hop everything in the oven. But with the hectic life Mauritians are, it is in silence that they will be bearing the ever increasing cost of living. What will be the next target, water?? Will there be a declic, if any?
