Mauritius Life

The population in Mauritius is around 1.2 million and is the third most densely populated country in the world. Two thirds of today's population are descendants of Indian immigrants. The rest of the population includes those of African, European and Chinese descent. The mixed-race group, the Crιoles, makes up a quarter of the population.
English is the official language, but almost everyone speak and read French, as well as the local dialect, Creole. Most Mauritians also speak their native language such as Bhojpuri (a sort of Creole Hindi), Chinese and Urdu.

With their origins rooted in three continents, it is not surprising that Mauritians celebrate a variety of religious festivals. Festivals such as Christmas and Easter, and others are all celebrated in this republic.
