Ceremony of conferment of French civilian honour

On 22nd May, the Consul General presented the insignia of “Chevalier des Palmes Académique” to Ms Exalta de Araujo, professor at the Alliance Française de Goa since 2008, the insignia of “Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres” to Mrs. Anuradha Wagle, Director of the Department of French and Francophone Studies at the University of Goa and that of “Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite” to Doctor Jawaharlal Henriques, Director of St Anthony’s Hospital in Goa.

These decorations testify to the remarkable work carried out for years by Mrs de Araujo and Mrs Waglé to promote the French language and culture in India.

Dr. Henriques, for his part, is highly appreciated by France for the considerable help he has given to the Consulate General of France in Bombay, and more directly to the French nationals in difficulty in Goa.
