Although this isn’t an official announcement, I’m thrilled to share that I was made a Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture on September 30, 2020.

A proper ceremony will take place when the Covid situation improves. Until then, I have a very nice letter from the Ambassador naming me a recipient of this honor, which is given to artists and writers and others involved in the promotion of the arts in France and around the world.

I am grateful to all who made this possible, especially the Alliance Francaise de Karachi.
