Mahindra and Mahindra Chairman and Managing Director, Anand Mahindra, has been conferred with Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honour) by Francois Richier, Ambassador of France to India. He was awarded this honour in recognition of his exceptional national as well as international accomplishments and initiatives undertaken through Mahindra Group.

Under his leadership, several fruitful relationships developed between French and Indian industries such as with French auto manufacturer, Renault, in India; with Peugeot Scooters, France, after its acquisition by the Mahindra Group recently; and Tech Mahindra motives in France (commercial office in Paris and R&D and engineering centre in Toulouse).

These endeavours by Anand Mahindra are considered to have sown a seed of a better relationship between India and France for the future.

    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had
    to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for
    about a year and am anxious about switching to
    another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated!
