H.E. Mr. Bernard de Montferrand, Ambassador of France has bestowed on Aruna Vasudev, the award of Chevalier dans l''''Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters), conferred on her by the French Government. The award is recognition of her contribution to the development of Indo-French cooperation in the field of Cinema and her achievements in promoting Asian films to an international level.

Earlier two weeks back the French government bestowed a similar award on Dileep Padgaonkar, noted media person and the Executive Manager of the Times of India Group.

The French government gives this Award to "persons who have distinguished themselves by their creativity in the field of art, culture and literature or for their contribution to the influence of the arts in France and throughout the world".

Vasudev, an eminent film critic and Editor of the "Cinemaya" magazine, world''''s only quarterly on Asian cinema, is also an active member of the Indo-French Initiative Forum.

The award to Padgaonkar was recognition of Padgaonkar''''s contribution to the development of Indo-French dialogue. Other recipients of this award include legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray and sitar maestro Ravi Shankar. The awards ceremony held at the French Embassy saw eminent media personalities including H K Dua, former Editor of the Hindustan Times, Romesh Shrama and Uma Ganapathy Raju of Moving Pictures, Ashwini Chopra of Punjab Kesri join in to congratulate Vasudev on this momentous occasion.

These awards are a testimony of the excellent cultural bonds between France and India and the growing role that media and media intellectuals are playing in the social and international milieu.
