Droupadi Murmu, the president of India, has been awarded the Yellow Star Carrier Grand Chain of Honor. On Monday, President Chan Santokhi gave her the highest honor. The head of state referred to it as a unique occasion. He explained the honor in terms of President Murmu’s status as the nation’s leader.
The president remarked that a woman’s place in a leadership position is typically determined by her commitment, insight, and strength in realizing her objectives. “Good leaders are self-aware, empower others, put an emphasis on forming relationships, stay true to themselves, and set an example for others to follow. Among other things, these traits help leaders establish solid bonds that produce great performance.
Santokhi described presenting the prize to his Indian counterpart as a wonderful honor. President Santokhi referred to her as the first tribal and second female president of the Republic of India “in recognition of her contribution to inclusivity and the empowerment of women.” He claims that in addition to representing the strong historical ties between Suriname and India, President Murmu’s visit also emphasizes thanks and reverence for the ancestors as well as their commitment to and fortitude in the face of the unknowable.
Santokhi asserts that it is more than an honor to present President Murmu with the distinguished award at the location where Indian immigrants first set foot on American soil as part of the 150th anniversary celebration of Hindustani immigration. “Your Excellency, continue your work to bring our nations and peoples together and ultimately contribute to lasting peace and development.” The Surinamese head of state finally addressed President Murmu, reports the Suriname Communication Service.
