A national recognition

Updated: Jun 5

How to describe the emotion that one feels when receiving a decoration from the hands of the President of the Republic. Since I was never talented for any kind of sports, I watched my friends receiving medals after sport competitions and dreamt of receiving one someday. The sport medals being inaccessible for me, I had to wait till the age of 51 to receive one !

I was elevated to the rank of Commander of the Order of the Star and Key of the Indian Ocean for my contribution in the Artistic field. Through me, all the Mauritian artists have been acknowledged.
