Chota Bharat, Mauritius 31 Notes 1 By an ironical twist of political destiny, the September 2000 elections saw the victory of a last minute opposition alliance. It was led by Sir Aneerood Jugnauth, and was founded on a daring formula of shared prime ministership, with Sir Aneerood Jugnauth, becoming Prime Minister for the first three years and Paul Berenger, his ally, taking up the post for the remaining two years as from 2003.

Mauritius thus seems to possess all the necessary ingredients that would make it look like an ideal reference within the Indian diaspora. To what extent this may be truly the case is no doubt a matter of opinion.
